It's easy to see why Vietnam is a country on the rise - there's no time for rest ... the world is there and the local residents are trying to scratch a dollar off it. After hundreds of years of war, reinvention and persistence are prevailing and the Vietnamese are thriving. What a fascinating country to visit in these times! Vietnam has a bit of everything - fresh and fragrant food, bustling and rambunctious marketplaces, beautiful mountains and beaches and stunning French-Colonial architecture. Such is the natural diversity along it's 2000km coastline, there's never a bad time to go.

Lazy Borders & Livestock

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [14]

Ho Chi Minh also has a Military Museum (lots of places in Vietnam have them and we visited one in Hanoi.) We decided to check it out after being dropped off from the tunnels, and with an entrance fee of 50p each it was worth a look. It started very ... Read more >

Chu Chi Tunnels

Fri, 9 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [20]

We seemed to have picked a good spot in Ho Chi Minh. The road with most of the bars and restaurants was just around the corner, the covered market was 5 minutes in the opposite direction and there where travel agents everywhere.  Unfortunately, ... Read more >

Cold Cabbage Soup & Crazy Bus Drivers

Thu, 8 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [12]

The next morning we checked into our next hotel. We only had one night here. And thank God! The place was awful. It had damp on 3 of the walls, you could see the mould patches. You could even smell the damp the second you walked through the door. Thankfully ... Read more >

Wed, 7 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [22]

After 2 fantastic nights in the amazing hotel we really didn't want to leave. It was so comfortable, a little home from home luxury. But we had to move. We had a flight booked from Hue to Da Lat. The hotel provided an airport transfer and off we went.... Read more >

Hot in Hue

Wed, 7 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [22]

The hotel was incredible. We checked in and the reception staff quite happily called the scooter company to tell them we had arrived. They then sent us up to the 8th floor where we were shown to a table set with a plate of fruit and a glass of passion ... Read more >

The Hai Van Pass

Tue, 6 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [12]

Time to hit the road! We dropped our rucksacks off at the scooter shop (they will send them to Hue on a bus for us) and picked up our scooter. We were relieved to see it was pretty new and looked in good condition. Over the past few days we've seen ... Read more >

The Ancient Town & More Allergies

Fri, 5 May 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [72]

It was time for us to move on again. We seem to be moving quickly at the minute. Always on the go! This time we were heading for Hoi An. We checked into a party hostel. The room was fine, the bathroom had a bath but there was no chance I would use it.... Read more >

Airport Benches & Allergic Reactions

Fri, 5 May 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [68]

We arrived back in Hanoi, to the intense craziness. Our flight to Da Nang wasn't until early the next morning, but we decided we would embrace the travellers ways and sleep (ha ha ha) at the airport! When we arrived we were pleased to see the airport ... Read more >

Tiny Towns and Huge Hills

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [61]

As I said in the last post, one of the first things we noticed about Sa Pa was the weather. When we arrived it was warm and sunny, when we headed out for some food about an hour later it was cold and cloudy. From the window of our room we could see the ... Read more >

The bus was due at reception at 6:30am. We were downstairs around 6:25. The bus arrived about 7:00 😴 This journey was about 6-7 hours long (they could never be exact because it all depended how insane your driver was) we had paid more than usual for ... Read more >

Propaganda, Palaces and Poverty

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [51]

Before our next bus adventure we had one more day to spend in Hanoi. We had heard of a Military museum so we decided to head there. The walk there was quite a long one and on the way the traffic was as bonkers as ever. The worst thing about it is the ... Read more >

Celebration of Women and War

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [36]

A lot of the sights in Hanoi you can see just walking around the city. The traffic alone is a sight in itself, the real hustle and bustle draws you in and it's unnerving how quickly you become a part of it. A few days ago the need to cross a road had ... Read more >

Ha Long Bay - Day3

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [42] | Comments [1]

We got up early and organised our bags before heading down stairs for breakfast. They had streaky bacon and local sausage, fresh omelettes were being made, with tea, coffee, juice and fruit. We had what we could stomach at that time and waited for our ... Read more >

Ha Long Bay - Day 2

The next day we were up about 6 to make sure we were packed and head to breakfast at 7. We were sailing to a pearl farm to see how they operated. We arrived and they whizzed us round pretty fast. We learnt how natural pearls are created, when something ... Read more >
