10 Days in Vietnam| The Best Vietnam Itinerary

Have 10 days in Vietnam? Follow this 10 day Vietnam Itinerary to see all the amazing places there.

Vietnam is probably one of the most underrated countries in Southeast Asia. While most of the tourists flock to Thailand or Singapore, I loved my trip to Vietnam and would highly suggest visiting this beautiful country. Vietnam has a diverse landscape, spanning from the North to South, including mountains, rivers (and bay), rice terraces, the largest cave in the world, and beaches. It also offers both modern cities and ancient towns. I didn’t have time to visit all the cool places in Vietnam however, so if you have more time, definitely check out Sapa, Hue, Da Nang, and the biggest cave in the world, Son Dong (if you have the time AND money). If you were like me and only have 10 days in Vietnam, use my Vietnam itinerary as a guide to plan your trip there! Regardless of how much time you spend in Vietnam, I am still super jealous of all the great experience and food you will have on your trip. Continue reading

However the Fitz Roy day hike in Patagonia is do-able for moderately fit person (or even non-fit individuals as long as they take it slow).
