My husband, 12-yr old daughter and I will be in Vietnam for 2 weeks in July 2007. Currently we plan to tour the Mekong Delta for 2 nights/3 days via an organized tour or guide recommended by various TA posts. However, we are unsure if that will be too much time to spend in the Mekong. Can anyone tell me if it's worthwhile spending the 2nd night in the Mekong, in order to travel deeper into that region? The difference looks to be travelling further towards the Cambodian border.
If we end up doing just 1 night/2 days in the Mekong, we would spend an extra day relaxing in Hoi An. Our current itinerary looks like this: 3 nights Hanoi, 2 nights Hue, 3 nights Hoi An, 2 nights Saigon, 2 nights Mekong Delta
