Hoàn Kiếm Lake, Hàng Trống, Hoàn Kiếm, Hanoi, Vietnam
A few minutes into my Hanoi experience, I was overtaken by the most intense mix of smells, sounds, and sightings in the downtown that never winds down. From vendors hawking their trades, food stall operators preparing some of the most exotic, and...

You’ll need some sustenance for a busy day, so after observing the early morning action at Hoan Kiem Lake, head to nearby Pho Thin for a warming bowl of Vietnam’s de facto national dish. Hanoians like their beef noodle soup fairly austere and...

Endless cables running from street to street, bikes coming from all directions, and old paint peeling from the cracking walls in buildings are some of the highlights of walking through the Old French Quarter in Hanoi. One has to be there to...

With its style, atmosphere, and history, Hanoi's Metropole is simply one of the region's most unforgettable experiences (the ceiling fans alone are to die for)--even if you just pop in for some tea at the cafe.

This was one of my favorite restaurants to visit for lunch. My partner and I liked it so much that we visited again and again. This restaurant offers rough and ready local dishes, all brilliantly done and super tasty. Flavors abound in each dish,...

Xuyen Trung, Cam Nam, Cẩm Nam, Hội An, Quảng Nam, Vietnam
Hoi An is one of my favorite travel destinations in all of Asia. Sure, it's undeniably touristy, but it's also quite laid back and relaxed - nothing like other South East Asia tourist hotspots like Chiang Mai, for instance. Hoi An has a wonderful...

42 Đường Phan Bội Châu, Cẩm Châu, Hội An, Quảng Nam, Vietnam
I used to call Hoi An "The Venice of Vietnam" as its narrow streets and colorful houses remind me of Venice. The city is well-known for its lanterns. Highly recommended to stop by for few days, here in the center of Vietnam.
