I am in the process of planning a trip to Vietnam this upcoming December. My sister and brother-in-law live in Hanoi, (he is director of columbia sportswear/moutain hardware in asia). I've done quite a bit of research on this trip and it looks like a great trip. Mixed reviews on going solo. I am accustomed to taking long solo trips so not a big issue for me. I've been told the language issue can be a barrier but really don't need to have a translator. The beaches are stunning I've been told and I've seen many pictures to confirm this. Also, some great hidden treaures in the jungle, but a little riskier given the remote locations of some of the very old Bhuddist temples. I've been getting assistance from my sister regarding maps and travel in Vietanm since she lives there and has also traevled extensively throughout Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
