Ninh Bình, Ninh Bình Province, Vietnam
During my solo trip to Vietnam I ended up booking a day tour with the assistance of the hotel I was staying at to Ninh Binh, from Hanoi, my base city. It was a rainy day when we first started out. Our first stop was at Hoa Lu, which was the...

Ninh Thắng, Ninh Bình, Vietnam
Visitors have a love hate relationship with Tam Coc - and Ninh Binh in general - thanks to the aggressive nature of the touts that descend upon them the moment they disembark from their day trip tour buses from Hanoi. Solution? Don't get on the...

03 Nhật Lệ, Thuận Thành, Thành phố Huế, Thừa Thiên Huế, Vietnam
While motorbiking around Hue, Vietnam, I spotted an edgy oasis from afar - a cafe that could have been plucked from the Lower East Side, NYC and dropped off in the ancient, walled city of Hue. With graffiti artwork adorning the walls, huge silver...

Hội An, Quang Nam Province, Vietnam
Just a little away from the more touristic area of this beautiful city, we find real life settings in quiet streets.

12-14 Hàng Gà, Hàng Bồ, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội, Vietnam
This is a reliable place to sample one of Hanoi's indigenous classics: banh cuon, steamed rice rolls stuffed with minced pork and chopped wood-ear mushrooms. Less a restaurant, more a hole-in-the-wall with a few tables and chairs strewn around,...

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...

14 Phan Huy Ích, Nguyễn Trung Trực, Ba Đình, Hà Nội, Vietnam
Part exhibition space, part cafe-bar, this gallery is housed in a gorgeous early 20th century villa and is one of the main hubs for Hanoi's small but robust art scene. Works by emerging and established Vietnamese artists are shown throughout the...

32 Điện Biên Phủ, Điện Bàn, Ba Đình, Hà Nội, Vietnam
Coffee shops are everywhere in Hanoi, but few strike the right balance between quality coffee and a hip, youthful atmosphere. Cong Caphe now has several branches in the city -- as well as in other big cities in Vietnam including Ho Chi Minh City...

Most bigger Vietnamese cities have their own noodle specialty and Danang is no exception. In its case, the dish in question -- mi quang -- is an absolute classic. The dish is made with wide egg noodles, with a characteristic slippery quality,...

Long established as one of Hoi An's best backpacker hangout, Before and Now is a more mellow alternative to the livelier traveller bars located across the bridge from the old town. It is a place for swapping travel tales and tips over cold bottles...
