6 Đinh Tiên Hoàng, Phú Hoà, Thành phố Huế, Thừa Thiên Huế, Vietnam
My best food tip? Ask your taxi driver for the best place to eat. You'll be pleasantly surprised. That's how I came to Lac Thien, a street cafe, for Banh Khoai--a savory crepe pan-fried to a golden crisp, stuffed with shrimp, bean sprouts and...

When Vietnamese go to Vietnam, they go with a food list to check off. On the top of my list was Banh Beo, like my grandmother (Ba Noi, in Vietnamese) used to make. It is a common dish of Hue, my father's hometown in central Vietnam. The steamed...

Huế, Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam
Roadside stands just outside of Vietnam’s former imperial city, Hué, overflow with bundles of colorful incense. When viewed en masse, these harlequin sticks resemble a textured kaleidoscope. The smell of cinnamon and sandalwood blends wafting...

Set along the evocatively named Perfume River, Hué is a good place to get a feel for the conflux of Vietnam's history, French colonial influences, and postwar life—and this riverside hotel is the perfect base from which to soak it all...

34 Nguyễn Tri Phương, Phú Hội, Thành phố Huế, Huế, Vietnam
After nearly three weeks of Vietnamese food, we were ready for a change. I had heard good things about Ganesh (formally known as Omar Khayyam's), and they really delivered with mouthwateringly good Indian food at reasonable prices. We ordered...

23 Võ Thị Sáu, Phú Hội, Thành phố Huế, Thừa Thiên Huế, Vietnam
The problem with most 'charity' shops is you struggle to find something to buy, but not here, and the kids who work here, make the stuff and then sell it to you as well (and high five each other after every sale :) You'll join supporters whose...

QL49, Hương Thọ, Hương Trà, Thừa Thiên Huế, Vietnam
When in the decadent Vietnamese city of Hue I visited all of the different Royal Tombs and was taken about how extravagant Minh Mang’s mausoleum was. The UNESCO World Heritage complex of almost 50 different temples, pagodas and pavilions is set...

A 13-mile section of Vietnam's National Route 1A between Da Nang and Hue, the Hai Van Pass might be short in distance, but it’s long on views. Rising up and down the Truong Son range, and with a name that translates to "Ocean Cloud" Pass,...

Getting to Vietnam's most famous pilgrimage site is an adventure in itself. From Hanoi, it is a 60km journey to the edge of the Red River Delta where limestone karsts start to rise from the paddies. An hour's ride in a row-boat up a flooded valley...

I took my good pal Roy Orbison to visit Mui Ne's sand dunes. At first, Roy was somewhat skeptical - sand dunes? On the ocean? no way - but it didn't take long for Roy to see the light. Mui Ne is frequently passed up as visitors shake and move from...
