Alone once again, I spend a few more days meandering around Hanoi, Vietnam. This city is probably my favourite yet. There’s a certain buzz about it that just sits well with me. In this episode, not only do I hang out with some fellow couch surfers and take some food photos in a restaurant. I [...]
After a great time on the houseboat on Halong Bay, we make our return to Hanoi where we chow down on some Pha, drink lots of coffee, walk through the markets and enjoy the girls last few days in Vietnam. But why read about it when you can watch it above.
We take a side trip from Hanoi to Halong Bay where we spend a night on a boat, sing a lot of Karaoke and get sneaky with some wine.
After a quick cheap flight, we land in Hanoi, Vietnam – the final stop on the Vietnam tour. In this episode we explore the Temple of Literature – Vietnam’s first University, hunt down the 30 cent Bai Hoi (beer) and meet a great guy named Timmy.
From Hoi An, Vietnam we began our journey to Hue, Vietnam. This trip took us through the mountainous Hai Van Pass, the Khai Dinh tomb and the Forbidden City. Watch the video for all the details.
From Nha Trang, we venture onward to Hoi An, Vietnam. The old quarter has a great deal of character and tailor shops line the streets. How can you not get something made? Hit play to see what happens.
Been to SEAsia? If so then you know ‘Same Same.’ Give this one a watch to put a smile on your face as this fantastic guy uses this golden term again and again. We had such a great chat.
If there is anything you should try while in Vietnam it is Vietnamese slow drip coffee and Pha for breakfast. Give this video a watch and let your mouth start to water.
In the west we think we need SUV’s and minivans to get around, but in Asia, motorbikes suffice. This week on the Friday Five, I’m bringing you 5 precarious bike scenarios I have witnessed.
