Hoàn Kiếm, Hanoi, Vietnam
The tools of the last blacksmith in Hanoi. One of the smallest shops I have ever seen in Hanoi, this is the last location of a trade that was once an entire city block.

Huế, Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam
Vung An Cu lake before Da Nang south of Hue. The Suzuki GN 125 road warrior or lemon. It is one of the few cruiser type bikes you can find in Hanoi for a reasonable price. Previous to my brother coming out to Vietnam for this ride I had purchased...

Angkor Night Market St, Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
Packed with over 240 vendors selling hand-made Cambodian crafts, the night market of Siem Reap is hands-down one of the best places to pick up unique souvenirs. Established in 2007, and running well into the nighttime hours, the market holds an...

Beng Mealea, Cambodia
Arriving at Beng Mealea fulfilled my dreams of becoming Indiana Jones. When I arrived with my Guide there was virtually no one there, and as I explored the crumbling ruins I noticed that local children were playing among the Angkor Style ruins. I...

Beng Mealea, Cambodia
Cambodia is a tourist destination on fire. Angkor Wat leads the pack with over two million visitors a year. As one of the world's largest religious complexes, Angkor deserves the attention, but don't overlook the lesser site: Beng Mealea. Only a...

Hàng Đào, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
Vietnam has a coffee culture all to its own and in Hanoi, this includes a few cafes that serve it with egg. Whipped with sweetened condensed milk, the egg sits atop the slow roasted coffee, providing you with a hot afternoon treat that you'll...

Cầu Thê Húc, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
The Huc bridge of Hoan Kiem Lake is located in the center of Hanoi. My travel buddy Jen and I had been traveling for several weeks in Vietnam and were getting ready to leave for the airport to head back to the States. We had grabbed a bite to eat...

Down this side street is an alley full of locals eating delicious street food!
Save Place
Hội An, Quang Nam Province, Vietnam
A short drive south of Da Nang, Hoi An is a spellbinding UNESCO World Heritage site, with intact 16th-century architecture that celebrates its origins as a trading port that long welcomed merchant ships from China, Japan, and Europe. The Old Town...

Hàng Đào, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam
Intricately stacking and securing goods onto the back of a bike was a fairly common, but always fascinating, sight in Vietnam. Next time I visit, I'll find a place to sit with a better background (probably on the side of the main road which is...

I come from a city with a decent reputation for Vietnamese food, and though I knew the food would be better still in Vietnam, I couldn't fully understand how much better it would be. This is cross-an-ocean-just-to-eat-it good. This is...
Save Place
Hương Sơn, Mỹ Đức, Hà Nội, Vietnam
A three hour journey from Ha Noi (by bus, boat, gondola and foot) will bring you to Perfume Pagoda. This ancient temple attracts thousands of visitors in its peak season (February 15th- March) when many Vietnamese take a pilgrimage up the steep...

11 Hàng Gai, Hàng Trống, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam
Yes, you read that correctly, ca phe trung is a Vietnamese coffee specialty with a whipped and sugared egg. It's frothy and delicious. The coffee shop at 11 Hang Gai in Hanoi's old quarter is also a fantastically well kept secret (or maybe not...

118 Lê Duẩn, Văn Miếu, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
My first day in Ha Noi, I was lucky enough to meet up with fellow AFAR traveler Heather, who also aimlessly wanders to get a sense of a new place. Soon after dropping off our bags, we started following our curiosities. At some point in the...

14 Chả Cá, Hàng Bồ, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
It may be on all the tourist lists, but one of our most memorable lunches in Vietnam was at Cha Ca La Vong. After winding your way through old Hanoi and up the stairs to this 100-year-old restaurant, you are seated at a communal table. No menu...

Words can do little justice to the scenery that awaits travelers to Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Hundreds of forested limestone karst formations rise from emerald-green waters, looking like slumbering creatures ready to stir. The...

Pho Ga (chicken pho) is traditional to northern Vietnam and is served all day. The best time to get it from a local vendor is early in the morning because it's SO fresh and makes for a perfect breakfast. As a side note about this photo, I love...

25 Ngũ Xã, Trúc Bạch, Ba Đình, Hà Nội, Vietnam
Via AFAR.com, I met some American pilots now living as expats in Vietnam. They were nice enough to take us out to some delicious local dinner spots and on motor bike rides through the outskirts of the city! This place, Pho Cuon Huong Mai, was far...

Chợ Đồng Xuân, Đồng Xuân, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
One of the best parts about visiting Hanoi as a traveler is the food—so fresh, so delicious, and so abundant that you can literally trip over it when trying to navigate the city's notoriously crowded sidewalks. This vegetable vendor outside Dong...

65 Huế, Bùi Thị Xuân, Hai Bà Trưng, Hà Nội, Vietnam
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,...

58 Quốc Tử Giám, Văn Miếu, Ba Đình, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam
Don't skip Temple of Literature when you visit Hanoi, especially if it is during the time of the New Year Celebrations. This is when students and their families will come and pay a visit and calligraphists will assemble outside the temple and...

Hàng Nón, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
I stumbled into this authentic cafe in the French Quarter of Hanoi, where the coffee beans are extracted from the poop of the Asian palm civet. A strong distinctive cup of coffee for less than a dollar while enjoying the world pass by is a...

54 Hai Bà Trưng, Trần Hưng Đạo, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
This is call "halong bai on land" or Tam coc. Bought a day trip from hanoi, sitting in a tuna can minivan for almost 2 hours join the tourist from everywhere around the world. When you ride the boat which it row by feet is very stunning shocking...

Hàng Quạt, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
I loved the Old Quarter. Each street's name corresponds to the wares in its shops. It was mind-boggling that the Vietnamese would be so rigid & organized, which is not the first impression you have (or even the 10th) when you visit this country....

55 Bát Sứ, Hàng Bồ, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
Situated to the south and east of Lake Hoan Kiem, the French Quarter has a different feel from the rest of Hanoi—one characterized by a profusion of space. The French began shaping this part of the city in the late 1800s (in part by knocking...

Just love the colors and the prayer flags.

78 Phố Mã Mây, Hàng Buồm, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
We had a great cruise with Handspan. Do your research before booking a Halong Bay cruise. To some extent, you absolutely get what you pay for. The day we embarked, several people died in the bay when the tender boat taking them to their boat was...

38 Phõ Gia Ngư, Hàng Bạc, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
We loved our stay here. The hotel is very nice & occupies a great location on a relatively quiet street in the old quarter just 2 blocks from the lake. The rooms are lovely and they have a terrific breakfast. Every staff member is impeccably...

12 Lý Đạo Thành, French Quarter, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
This may be the most elegant night scene you can come across in the city of Hanoi. It is an impressively stylish, unbearably nostalgic, and surprisingly affordable bar/restaurant in former press club room. You can sit with a crisp cocktail and...

Lemongrass pork grilled to a smoky, caramelized perfection over charcoal and served with herbs, lettuce, cucumber and fresh rice papers, accompanied by two friendly hosts and their delectable peanut chili sauce. The sticks resemble tiny ship masts...
