Travel // Vietnam [Part Five – 3 Thing to Experience in Ninh Binh] {August 2019}

We nearly cut Ninh Binh out of our already tight Vietnamese itinerary and I’m so so glad, after much persuasion, that we kept it in. This was by far one of the biggest train stations we'd seen. When we jumped off the night train mid-morning there was so much hustle and bustle. Fortunately it was …

Travel // Vietnam [Part Four – Adding Some Culture to your Itinerary with Hue] {August 2019}

Travel // Vietnam [Part Two – Why you Should Add Lan Ha Bay to Your Itinerary Instead of Halong Bay] {August 2019}

After many hours online and advise from wise travellers we opted for a boat trip on Lan Ha Bay instead of Halong Bay, as our second stop on our Vietnam tour. They’re next to each other but Lan Ha Bay is a bit quieter and when the tide is low it reveals secluded beaches. Here's …

Travel // Vietnam [Part One – 5 Things to Experience in Hanoi] {August 2019}
