Nice to hear from you. Thank you for your excellent guidance through your lovely country Vietnam and Cambodia. Based on your question, here is Vietnam tour reviews:
2day trip to Halong bay is too short. It should have been 3day trip. However, We had wonderful time on Victory Star cruise. Sapa is so beautiful, too. 2nights in Sapa were good for us. Sapa tours reviews as one of the best on our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. Hoian is a lovely town and 1 more night there would be better. Mekong tour was excellent. You are right. Spend more time there than in Saigon. Ankor Wat is amazing. Your hotels, food, tour guides and buses are excellent. Overall, we had wonderful time.
All the very best to you and your family

Dining and drinking
Things travelers should know on Sapa tours: Ethnic people here are very hospital. However, travellers should pay attention to the local rules explained by our tour guide to avoid taboo things. Each group has its own culture regulations. For example, do not sit with your back to the ancestral altars. Do not sit at the head of the drinking table. Do not drink the cups of wine on the worship food tray. Do not touch the heads of the local children because in their belief, the spirit stays on their heads. If you touch the child head, the spirit will go away and the child will get ill.
Ham Rong Flower Garden
The flower garden is located on Ham Rong Mountain. The only way to get there is to climb many steps with the start from Sapa market. This is the way up and also the way down. After 100 steps, you will reach the orchid garden. This section is very beautiful from the end of November to March with different kinds of orchid flowers. Just 5m from the garden is the platform where you can enjoy the best view of Fansipan mountain. Continue your walk, you will get to the garden of 12 earthly branches. Here, you have opportunities to take many beautiful photos of lush mountains dotted with so nice flowers of different kinds. Leaving the central garden for the path, you will see a gate leading to a stilt house where you can enjoy the traditional music show from different ethnic groups living in Sapa. The show is included in the entrance tickets. Following is the timetable for the show in Summer and Winter:
Summer time from Monday to Thursday:
Winter time from Monday to Thursday:
Friday to Sunday show for both Summer & Winter
Sapa love market is the special cultural feature of the locals. The reason for the love market happen is probably because of arranged marriage. The local men or ladies are allowed to come to the love market to find their lovers when they are not happy with their wives or husbands. Men bring their favorite music instrument, perform and try to invite ladies to dance with him at the love market while looking for the lovers. After dancing happily together for a while, they would talk together. It may take one or a few market fairs for them to get closer. If they find to get on well together, they will meet again at the next fair and seperate from the crow. They will enjoy happy time and ... together. However, they are not allowed to meet and enjoy happy time when the market finish. The market only opens on Saturday night. Nowaday, visiting Sapa, you can not join the market because some of western tourists joined the market and some local babies have western appearance. We take with some of the locals about their love market: They said the market still opens but being kept away from tourists. Sometimes the local government arranges the love market and invite the locals to perform music and dance, so tourists on Sapa holidays can discover its special cultural feature, but it is not the real love market as it is.
