Fishing Villages in Lan Ha Bay

VIETNAM | Sat, 17 Feb 2018 | By mirlingabroad | Views [224] | Comments [1]

What is the most different type of lifestyle you can imagine? I'm guessing that many people reading this post have a home in a city, either go to school or to work from 9 to 5, and buy their food in a grocery store. I know that until January 2018, I ... Read more >

Tales from a Sleeper Bus

VIETNAM | Sat, 3 Feb 2018 | By mirlingabroad | Views [205]

 Riding the bus across Vietnam, there's a strange pattern, an ebb and flow. In my opinion, for travel to be worthwhile there needs to be enough time in a place to settle in, get to know the lay of the land, and have a couple of nights to get the ... Read more >

Travel by Motorbike in Vietnam

VIETNAM | Mon, 29 Jan 2018 | By mirlingabroad | Views [331]

I thought I was going to die today. Careening down the steep mountainside on the back of our rickety rented hostel motorbike, whipping around curve after curve of thin roadway hugging the cliffs, facing multiple moments of certain head-on destruction ... Read more >

I must update this more regularly! Soooo it was Deepavali (Diwali) half-term back in October and I took myself off to Vietnam for a week.  I met up with my mate Pedro (Pete) in Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon and we explored the city.  I LOVE HCM! ... Read more >

Lazy Borders & Livestock

VIETNAM | Sat, 10 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [107]

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

VIETNAM | Fri, 9 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [104]

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

VIETNAM | Thu, 8 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [107]

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 >

Dinner in Da Lat

VIETNAM | Wed, 7 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [218]

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

VIETNAM | Wed, 7 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [186]

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

VIETNAM | Tue, 6 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [92]

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

VIETNAM | Fri, 5 May 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [273]

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

VIETNAM | Fri, 5 May 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [248]

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

VIETNAM | Sat, 29 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [218]

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 >

Clouds and Cold Weather.... Wait, What??

VIETNAM | Sat, 29 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [177]

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

VIETNAM | Fri, 28 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [182]

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

VIETNAM | Fri, 28 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [114]

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 >

Hanoi, Sapa, Halong Bay & Dong Hoi - Vietnam: The first few cities in Vietnam were filled with a lot of moving around the northern part of the country.  My friends Zubin and Victoria joined me in Hanoi, so it was a welcome change to the ... Read more >

Falling for Vietnam

VIETNAM | Mon, 22 Feb 2016 | By gemma_laing | Views [1677]

This wasn't my first visit to Vietnam. I always knew that I would return to this curious land. This time my first breath was taken from Ho Chi Minh City, the countries fast paced, dusty, concrete jungle. From the dizzying capital escaping to delightful ... Read more >
