Vietnam itinerary: Get the most out of 2 weeks in Vietnam

I didn’t really know how I would feel about Vietnam. It seemed to be one of those places that people either love or hate. I was worried about the traffic, intrigued by the food, and looking forward to the natural beauty. I didn’t expect to fall in love with it, but over my time in the country that is exactly what happened. It could be tricky at times, there were definitely language barriers and I got lost repeatedly. But, I left with tons of great memories and tips to share. So if you are...

Solo travel in Vietnam: Tips and what to expect

Vietnam seems to be one of those places that people either fall in love with or end up disliking. I know several people who fall on both sides but I’m happy to say I was one of the lucky ones who fell in love with Vietnam.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh was our first stop in Vietnam and what a great place to begin our travels in the country. On the bus ride into the city center from the airport we kept ourselves entertained looking out the windows, taking it all in as we made our way towards the backpacker district of Pham Ngu Lao. There was that distinct South East Asia feel to the place; people were eating at food stalls along the side of the street, there was a bit of a rough and ready look to the place and then there were the...

Crawling through the Chu Chi tunnels with a Vietnam Vet

Before visiting Ho Chi Minh, we had been reading up on what to do in the area and came across the Chu Chi Tunnels. A mind-boggling 200 kilometer network of underground tunnels, used by the Viet Cong in the Vietnam war. Visiting the tunnels couldn’t have been easier. In the backpacker area of Pham Ngu Lao in Ho Chi Minh, we were tripping over people wanting to take us on a tour. Usually, we try to do things as independently as possible and are not fans of tour buses but from the research we...
