Fri, 5 May 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [597]

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 >

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [580]

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 >

Propaganda, Palaces and Poverty

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [505]

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 [425]

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 >

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [325]

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 >

Ha Long Bay - Day 1

We were picked up buy a mini bus at 8am from our guest house. We spent the next 30 minutes navigating the crazy streets to collect all the other people for the journey. The bus was cramped with tiny seats and no leg space, and once everyone was on, ... Read more >

A Hub of Terrifying Traffic.

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [424]

Hanoi is a crazy hub of culture. There are streets of market stalls and vendors packed with locals, then roads over run by travellers. The buildings here are unusual compared to anywhere else. They are narrow but really tall. And when I say narrow, they ... Read more >

Flight Day had arrived. Nearly 8 weeks in and this is the first plane we are getting on since our flight to Bangkok at the very beginning. We got up, horribly hungover, got washed and dressed and headed down to wait for our bus. Another 3 hours back ... Read more >

Northern Vietnam

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 | By mtd5116 | Views [212]

The best part about Northern Vietnam was that Susie was able to visit us there. I can't pretend that I loved Hanoi and it didn't help that it was raining and cold the first few days we were there BUT it did manage to clear up for when Susie was there.... Read more >
