  • Coffee and lanterns Today was another nice relaxing day. I was pretty lazy in the morning and just hung around a bit in the hostel, leaving to go walk around old town, mail some postcards, and obviously grab a banh mi for lunch! Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 30, 2017
  • Beach beach beachExcited for my first beach day! Ended up with a pretty large group this morning, and rented some bikes from the hostel to bike the 20 mins to the beach. I wanted to go to hidden beach, which is supportively Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 29, 2017
  • Less than 24 hours in Hoi An and already loving it Travel day to Hoi An! I was pretty excited to finally get to the town I've heard so many good things about.

  • Checking out Hoi AnOur hotel - Vinh Hung 2 Resort was lovely and our room on the second floor, overlooked the pooL Compared to previous places where some form of noise woke us up, this one was so quiet we slept in Posted by Toot'speak in Indochina Encompassed | Oct 1, 2017
  • One day in HueAlthough today was my only full day in Hue, and I had a few things I wanted to see, I ended up being so lazy and I didn't even care! I hung around the hostel a bit in the morning Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 27, 2017
  • Happy to finally be leaving HanoiAfter the worst bus ride ever, I was so ready to leave Hanoi and was pretty unhappy with Vietnam in general. Luckily I was flying south today, and I woke up early for breakfast and saw one of the girls Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 26, 2017
  • Never taking a bus in Vietnam again -_-Today was pretty much the bus ride from hellllllll. The day started out fine, I slept in a bit and then trekked two miles with Mama Vi Vu into a nearby town. My bus was at 4, but around noon Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 25, 2017
  • Rice fields for days After a pretty solid sleep, minus getting woken up a couple times in the early morning by the rooster, we had a lovely breakfast of banana crepes with honey. We then set off for some trekking! I was really enjoying Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 24, 2017
  • First sleeper bus in VietnamDay one in sapa. A different bus came to pick me up than I was expecting, but they had my name so I guess that was the right one. The bus was pretty cool, it was a sleeper bus, and Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 23, 2017
  • Back to HanoiLast day in Halong Bay! We got to sleep in a bit with breakfast at 8, except with the power going off in the middle of the night it was soooo hot and I barely slept 😴. It was quite Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 22, 2017
  • Cat Ba Island In case anyone was wondering, hiking in 95% humidity is even worse than it sounds!! We headed to a cave this morning (it was okay, but I'm not a big cave person) before making our way to Cat Ba island. Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 21, 2017
  • Cruise time!!First day in Halong Bay! It is BEAUTIFUL, one of those places where pictures simply don't do it justice. Great weather too. We arrived at the pier around noon and had lunch on the boat on the way to a Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 20, 2017
  • HanoikidsToday is my last day in Hanoi but it was actually kind of lovely! I woke up determined to be outside more than yesterday so I walked down to the Hoa Lo Prison in the morning. I was also trying Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 19, 2017
  • Cons of Pre-BookingDays like today make me wish I hadn't prebooked stuff too far in advance. I have a pretty organized schedule and itinerary for my two months in Asia, and only pre booked the first two weeks, allocating three nights in Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 18, 2017
  • VietnamGreetings from Vietnam! Had a really early flight this morning from Chiang mai but successfully made it to Hanoi. Immigration at the airport was kind of a mess, there were a lot of confused people and no instructions whatsoever. I Posted by bsantos1991 in Southeast Asia 2017 | Sep 17, 2017
  • Pho CircleVietnam started, and now ends, with a bowl of pho - quite fitting for our trip, as you can say that we've come pho circle in our journey through one of Southeast Asia's gems. There's something quite comforting about Posted by vagabondvoyager in Asian Adventures Anew: More Good Eats | Oct 22, 2016
  • Art of BrothRamen is the gold standard of Asian soup noodles for us, but we've always held a soft spot in our hearts for the venerable Vietnamese bowl of pho. These two versions of soup noodles can't be any more different Posted by vagabondvoyager in Asian Adventures Anew: More Good Eats | Oct 10, 2016
  • Disney-NamThere may not be a more picturesque location in Vietnam than Hoi An's Old Town - too bad it doesn't really feel like Vietnam! Good or bad, Hoi An's Old Town feels extremely foreign compared to our previous stops Posted by vagabondvoyager in Asian Adventures Anew: More Good Eats | Oct 16, 2016
  • VSTVietnam Standard Time, or VST for short, is defined as UTC + 7. However, it's not always about time zones when used in reference to developing nations. Quite often, it's a joke - India is a prime example, Posted by vagabondvoyager in Asian Adventures Anew: More Good Eats | Oct 17, 2016
  • Rice DreamsAn exhausting night train in, and an exhausting night train out - very few tourist sites are worth such fatigue and effort, but the incredible rice terraces of Sapa certainly were. One of the best decisions we made in Posted by vagabondvoyager in Asian Adventures Anew: More Good Eats | Oct 19, 2016
  • The MessageFor nearly two weeks, Vietnam has been trying to deliver me a message, one of such profundity, that it is rivaled only by the depth of the Vietnamese culinary repertoire. I paid no attention to the early murmurs that Posted by vagabondvoyager in Asian Adventures Anew: More Good Eats | Oct 21, 2016
  • Xe OmSwarms of locust decimating a field of crops, or throngs of army ants overrunning their prey - those are visuals that come to mind when visiting Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam's most populous centre. What exactly could swarms of Posted by vagabondvoyager in Asian Adventures Anew: More Good Eats | Oct 9, 2016
  • HCM HangoverChaotic, crowded, dusty, and polluted ... all those descriptors of Vietnam's largest city were verified as being true, but we still managed to find some positives about HCMC, which was far more enjoyable than its negative reputation would've suggested. Posted by vagabondvoyager in Asian Adventures Anew: More Good Eats | Oct 11, 2016
  • Art of CoffeeVietnam's most welcome surprise has been its coffee - while we've been fans of Vietnamese iced coffee forever, it's not something we crave on a regular basis. Once every couple of months or so is enough to satiate our Posted by vagabondvoyager in Asian Adventures Anew: More Good Eats | Oct 13, 2016
