  • It's so damn hot...Bun Bo Hue was a bad choiceWe met for breakfast at 6.30 - huge serves of delicious food as usual. I only ate a bit of fruit as still felt pretty off. A taxi took us the 35 minutes to Dong Hoi airport for our flight Posted by EricaJY in Vietnamming | Mar 6, 2016

  • Getting our trek onWe woke up early today, mostly due to being uncomfortable. The first thing Tinny called out was "Eri did you sleep terribly?". Yes, yes we did. It was the (cold, painful) dark before the dawn though; as we saw the Posted by EricaJY in Vietnamming | Mar 4, 2016

  • Day 162: ShowtimeNot exactly sure how but the morning got away from me and I had a rather late start of my day. I wanted to visit the War Remnants Museum, by the time I made there though - fending of guys Posted by An.Ke in Antje is out of the office. | Feb 29, 2016
  • Day 161: The traffic!Started the day by getting a bit organised for Vietnam: booked a short 2-day tour to the Mekong delta and got an open tour bus pass to travel north afterwards. I also got a hold of a map of HCMC Posted by An.Ke in Antje is out of the office. | Feb 28, 2016
  • Day 160: To VietnamWell, turns out traffic in Bangkok on Sunday mornings isn't that bad and I was super early at the airport. The counter wasn't even open for another hour... But better too early than too late ;) The flight to Ho Chi Posted by An.Ke in Antje is out of the office. | Feb 27, 2016

  • Off to the Yuang Yang Rice Terraces in China I had a quick visit in Hanoi which was very welcome as I could get some things that I was unable to find in other smaller places. It is so handy, that the hotels that I Posted by danjali in Discovering Vietnam | Feb 25, 2016

  • A Ladies Tea for TwelveCalu survived the night but was still in a bad way. He did compliment the bathroom design which conveniently had the toilet right next to the sink so you could use both simultaneously. Tin, Dave and I had breakfast at Posted by EricaJY in Vietnamming | Feb 24, 2016
  • Vinh Long, Sa Dec and Ben Tre in the Mekong Delta I'm afraid this entry is way behind time as I wasn't able to get it done before I went to China where I had not access to the internet. Once landing in Can Tho from my flight Posted by danjali in Discovering Vietnam | Feb 24, 2016
