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.

Cuc Phoung National Park

Fri, 5 Apr 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [82]

OUR FIRST STOP AFTER AN EARLY START from Tam Dao to Cuc Phoung was ostensibly a restroom break. But by the number of tour buses at the Vietnamese craft center we suspect that the guides get a bit of baksheesh from the paintings, silk, wood carvings and ... Read more >

Tam Dao and the Great Food Rebellion

Wed, 3 Apr 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [65]

WE HAD PLENTY OF ROOM TO STRETCH OUT on the Vietnam Airlines 787 from HCMC to Hanoi—the plane is huge and was just over half full. The group, sans “the other John,” was heading north for the six-day “Northern Extension” ... Read more >

Birds of Cat Tien

Mon, 1 Apr 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [58]

TO REACH SOME OF THE MORE DISTANT parts of Cat Tien requires one of the park’s “safari” vehicles. It’s also convenient to have the truck nearby in the event of a late afternoon thunderstorm although more often than not we ended ... Read more >

Monkey Business

Sat, 30 Mar 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [55]

THE MORNING BIRD CHORUS WAS DROWNED OUT by the WHOOP s, WA s and WOW s of the gibbons—Southern Yellow-Cheeked Crested Gibbons to be exact. A couple of black males and a dirty-blonde female with a baby hang—literally—around the park ... Read more >

Cat Tien National Park

Fri, 29 Mar 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [33]

THE VEHICLES DROPPED US AT THE RIVER—cars are verboten in Cat Tien National Park although it seems like most everything else is OK. The park was extra-crowded this Easter weekend—groups of young people in a tent encampment; team-building, ... Read more >

A Shot in the Dark

Thu, 28 Mar 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [41]

DAWN COMES EARLY IN MOUNT BIDOUP National Park and were on the trail by 5:30. It was a short but rugged hike to the first bird hide where the Collared Laughingthrushes were waiting impatiently as if we were late delivering their breakfast. Target Bird ... Read more >

Da Lat 2.0

Mon, 25 Mar 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [42]

STAYING IN DA LAT WAS LIKE BEING ON R&R—a real hotel in a real city with a real breakfast (once) and even Italian food for dinner, also once. We even found a laundry around the corner.             ... Read more >

Yok Don National Park

Sun, 24 Mar 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [35]

LODGING IN VIETNAM’S NATIONAL PARKS has been surprisingly good—certainly an upgrade from Ngoc Linh. Our room in Yok Don National Park had both wifi and air-con, a bed with a sheet and duvet and hot water—all the essentials. Dinner and ... Read more >

Mang Den Nature Reserve

Sat, 23 Mar 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [36]

GREEN HOTEL IN MANG DEN SEEMED LIKE a palace compared to Ngoc Linh. Both Connie and I played catch-up after two nights sans wifi—she was adding to eBird while I tried to update the journal. I won’t be able to accurately account for all the ... Read more >

Ngoc Linh National Park

Thu, 21 Mar 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [59]

HOANG GIA TRANG GUEST HOUSE in Ngoc Linh is as low as we can sink, lodging-wise—at least we hope it is. It’s the only game in town and features rock hard beds with a single sheet and blanket in which we wrapped ourselves like human burritos ... Read more >

Bach Ma National Park

Tue, 19 Mar 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [45]

AS WE ASCENDED INTO THE CENTRAL HIGHLANDS of Vietnam the quality of our lodging began to decline. We spent Saturday night at the Green Hotel in Khe Sanh, a step below our place in Phong Nha. When I mentioned we were near where for the first half of 1968, ... Read more >
