7 Awesome Things to Do in Hue, Vietnam

by Jessica Solomatenko @ 7 Awesome Things to Do in Hue, Vietnam

Hi Alexis! Da Nang is pretty different than Hoi An. Da Nang is a bit more developed and has the nicer beach these days but Hoi An has the fantastic night market and a slower city kind of feel to it. We stayed in both for about 5 days each and they have their own character and charm. The Marble Mountains are right in between the two as well! When we went to Hue we hired a driver and he gave us some facts as we drove to each place but he didn't come with us inside the places. We just did the research on our own about the history but took the drivers advice a bit on which places to go to, when and which places to skip. He was fantastic!

Top Things To Do In Mui Ne, Vietnam

It is on the main tourist trail in Vietnam, though unless you are 100% confident on a motorbike I would recommend only spending one full day exploring the area. The reason why is that the majority of these things can be done on a tour. The majority of hostels and travel agencies will hold twice a day tours to all the highlights, this means to can tick off the top things to do in Mui Ne relatively quickly. Even better is that these tours are incredibly affordable, I booked my sunrise tour with Mui Ne Backpackers Village and it only cost $7.00 / 160,000 VND!

Can You Travel Hong Kong on a Backpacker Budget?

by Guest Author @ South East Asia Backpacker

Over all, Hong Kong cost us around HKD$3,500 for two people for three nights. Solo travellers might find themselves spending a little less than this. It’s a beautiful city with so much to offer, and its often overlooked by backpackers. We wholeheartedly believe that anyone who doesn’t visit here is missing the opportunity to see a different side to China, unlike anywhere else.

How to Order Coffee in Vietnam Like a Local

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Vietnam is a country that runs on coffee. There is a cafe on just about every block in Saigon and Hanoi and they’re packed most of the day with a mix of locals leisurely sipping away enjoying the day and others grabbing a quick fix on their way to wherever they’re headed. The cafe culture in Saigon is why it’s one of our favorite cities in the world. To see the list of our favorite Saigon cafes, check out our post on it.

Coffee is brewed differently in Vietnam. It’s sort of a mix between the French press and pourover methods and despite producing great coffee, it’s surprisingly “low tech”.

Why Visit Tsomgo Lake in Gangtok, Sikkim [AKA CHANGU LAKE]

Tsomgo lake, also known as Changu lake, is a scenic glacier lake at an altitude of 3753 mtrs, located in Gangtok, Sikkim. This is one of the best high altitude lake in India, mainly due to its beauty which has given it a surge of popularity. So, while I was planning what to do in Sikkim, a visit to Tsomgo popped up as a “must-see”. And I have to agree… Short clip of Tsomgo Reasons to Visit The Stunning Tsomgo Lake Year round attraction Tsomgo lake looks spectacular in any season.

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN VIETNAM - The Hungry Suitcase


The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand enjoys a 50% return rate for foreign tourists. In contrast, Vietnam only pulls back 5% of visitors.Personally, I feel that Vietnam walks all over Thailand in almost every travel category except beaches. So, why do so many people have such bad experiences and never return to Vietnam?I hope the list I have made below helps out first-time visitors. It may seem cynical and anti-Vietnamese. It’s not. I love this country; I want you to love it, too. I’d just like to alert travelers to beware of the common first-time mistakes that may sour their experience of the local people and the country overall.Do your homework, know what to expect, and this is the most rewarding country in Southeast Asia to explore.Here goes:-1-TAKE YOUR VISA SERIOUSLY, VERY SERIOUSLY INDEEDYes, it seems like common sense, but I have seen tourists turned ...

Snorkeling in Nha Trang with Vietnam Snorkeling Tours

by Tasha Amy @ Backpackers Wanderlust

An Under Water  World With Vietnam Snorkeling… Nha Trang no doubt is a tourist hub in Vietnam, with a lot more of a Western influence than other areas of the country. Most signs and menus are in Vietnamese or Russian, and unfortunately for me I speak neither of these languages. This promoted me to jump online to search the generic ‘what to do in nha trang’, of course the typical hire a beach chair, visit Vinpearl, came up. Though, what truly caught my eye was the chance to go snorkeling in Nha Trang. A tour with Vietnam Snorkeling popped up, and after reading some reviews and seeing what my hostel said about it I decided to go ahead and book. Side note- book online as prices are generally cheaper than booking through your hostel as they will be earning a commission, this was the case for me anyway. How I Book Cheap Transport In Vietnam: Baolau.com Where To Go Snorkeling In Nha Trang? Lucky for ocean lovers like me, Nha Trang has over 12,00 hectares of official marine reserve. This coral filled area is known as Hon Mun Marine Protected Area and is where you will visit if you are […]

The Cheapest Tour Of The Cu Chi Tunnels, Ho Chi Minh City

by Tasha Amy @ Backpackers Wanderlust

Taking A $6.00 Tour Of Cu Chi Tunnels – Do I Regret It? I am not usually one to go into a travel agency to book a tour, though when it came to visiting the Cu Chi Tunnels in Hoi Chi Minh City I had no idea where to start. I knew I could not do it myself. There was no way I would survive being on a motorbike in that traffic and I was no confident taking public transport. Booking a tour would be the only way to go. If you have visited a Vietnamese City you will agree with me on one thing, travel agencies are everywhere and it can be difficult to tell which are legitimate or not. Vietnam is a country not just known for its counterfeit goods, but also counterfeit companies. We kind of winged it and decided to book with the ‘most’ legitimate looking company. Basically this just meant shiny floors, a professional setup and nice staff members. It is located along Bùi Viện, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, just down from Gotcha! fast food restaurant on the opposite side of the road.

Unforgettable Experience at Novotel Lombok Resort & Villas

by Jo @ Wander With Jo

Last week in Lombok was simply amazing. So much so that I am going back again in two days. We were staying at one of the prettiest properties on the island – Novotel Lombok, which totally enhanced our experience.  Lombok is barely a 30 minute boat ride away from Gili Trawangan (where we went to kick start 2018), so getting there is really easy.  The local boat made sure that my friends and I reached Bangsal harbour within time and swiftly, found a local taxi that was willing to ferry us to the hotel at a reasonable cost of IDR 300000.  A beautiful 2 hours and 30 minute drive through some amazing landscapes interrupted only by torrential downpour couldn’t dampen my spirits. With hilly roads for the initial portion of the journey, followed by wide open roads and wider intersections it was quite revealing to see that Lombok is still an island but with all the facilities. Although it is quite big in size as compared to Gili where the only modes of transport are bicycles and horse carts, it was a humbling experience for sure. First look at Novotel Lombok Resort & Villas Novotel Lombok Upon arrival at the [...]

LIVE LIKE A LOCAL: RENT A SHORT-TERM APARTMENT WHILE TRAVELING

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

If you want to experience the true life of a place, experience it like a local: get an apartment in a true neighborhood. Wake up to the sounds of street vendors and garbage trucks. Be recognized with a smile by your local noodle-slinger.

If a city strikes your fancy, rent an apartment for a month and stick around for awhile.

Another advantage of worldwide Internet networking is that it allows us to exchange short-term apartments without going through an agent or company. Check the New York City craigslist sublet page and you’ll find plenty of Parisians happy to exchange their Left Bank apartment for a little temporary stepping stone on the Upper West Side.

‘A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY’: THE TWILIGHT ZONE EPISODE THAT EXPLORES OUR NEED TO TRAVEL

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

“a place around the bend where he could jump off”

Created during a time (1959-1964) when American television seemed eerily clean and domestic, The Twilight Zone challenged viewers to examine a possibility of uncertainty beyond the comforts and assumptions of contemporary life. It was my favorite thing on TV. One episode in particular always stuck with me- A Stop at Willoughby. It brings up questions. How could such a ‘successful’ man working in a New York tower and living in an upscale suburb be so miserable? Why would he dream of escaping to a sleepy village where the streets have no name and the children wear overalls and go fishing?

A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY is the story of an advertising executive named Gart. Gart feels endless pressure from his pugnacious boss and his minion-like coworkers at his New York City office during ... Read More »

Waterbom Waterpark in Bali [Asia’s #1 Waterpark]

by Jo @ Wander With Jo

I always feel I am a kid at heart and age is just a number. So while traveling; amusement / water parks are always on my list. With a tag of being the #1 water park in Asia, Waterbom, Bali was hence, on my radar. With incessant rains for the past two days, it was difficult to even fathom driving over an hour towards Kuta where the water park is located from our lovely villa in Canggu.  Luckily, after almost two gloomy days, the sun shone bright and we headed towards Kuta. First Impressions of Waterbom, Bali Located right next to the busy Kuta coastline, Warerbom, Bali does not look that imposing from the outside. Upon entering the premises, it was quite a nice view from the parking area itself. The entrance to the park is through the main counter for purchasing tickets and Christmas being around the corner, the mood was quite festive. Once done with the formalities of getting the tickets and wristbands with money loaded onto it (no cash/card accepted inside the park), we were off towards the lockers and changing area for a fun filled experience ahead. Although the ticket counter was not too crowded, it [...]

SIEM REAP’S 10 BEST BARS: CLASSY, HIDDEN DIVES JUST OUTSIDE OF ANGKOR

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Every year I find myself in Siem Reap, Cambodia for a week. It’s inevitable, and always enjoyable.

Angkor Wat is, along with Bagan in Myanmar, one of the two most spectacular temple sites in Asia, if not the world. I’ve come back again and again with friends, or by myself. Although lately I barely spend time in the temples of Angkor Wat, I love the cafe and bar scene of nearby Siem Reap, a charming little French colonial town adjacent to Angkor that now serves as the tourist-amenity center of the region. Though a tourist town, it’s far from a tourist trap. There is something about the clear blue sky, slow clouds and that long twilight that I love here. And, there’s the drinks.

Pub Street is famous here. It is the center of Siem Reap and the fulcrum of activity in ... Read More »

5 of SAIGON’S BEST HIDDEN COCKTAIL BARS

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is a place of surprises, much of them elusive to first-time visitors with just a few days on the ground. Though a bit challenging at first, Ho Chi Minh City eventually became our favorite city in the world and a base for many of our adventures in the Southeast Asian region. It’s also a pretty great place to go out and grab a drink, whether it’s a Monday or Saturday, Saigon’s music venues, breathtaking rooftop bars, and tiny neighborhood spots are buzzing.

Unlike the more world famous, easy-to-find spots of Bangkok and Shanghai, Saigon is a city of tight neighborhoods which unveil themselves only to those intrepid enough to explore the tiniest, faintest lines on the map. Saigon doesn’t have a Times Square or Pudong. It’s a megacity comprised of small, distinct districts and alleys. Perch ... Read More »

However, during a recent trip back to the Philippines to visit friends and family, […]

Pantai Pandawa (Aka Pandawa Beach) BALI

by Guest Blogger @ Wander With Jo

This is a guest post by Diganto Ozzy of WanderWithOzzy coz this is one of the beaches of Bali that I managed to miss in my quest to see all. I am going back though, so surely will cover tons more 🙂 For now, here’s an introduction to Pantai Pandawa (Aka Pandawa Beach).  Pandawa Beach was, until a few years ago was a hidden and secret beach, that was very difficult to access due to its location in the deep valley and surrounded by the white stone cliff. People had to go through small steps down on the cliff with dangerous valley underneath and the only local people who could access the beach were fishermen and seaweed farmer. The scene at Pantai Pandawa has completely changed over the years since locals have come together to construct roads by sculpting through the cliffs and is now accessible to everyone. Well paved road that has been constructed with utmost attention to make sure it is a smooth ride made Pandawa beach jump on the Bali beach map. Although the parking charge at IDR 15ooo is a tad high compared to other beaches, the area is still developing, so it might take a while [...]

The Backpackers Travel Guide To Bagan in Myanmar

by Tasha Amy @ Backpackers Wanderlust

The Ultimate Backpackers Travel Guide to Bagan in Myanmar Myanmar is an extremely up and coming country in the South East Asian backpacking trail and Bagan is the number one bucket list place in this country. This city is full of history and amazing pagodas at every turn. Though, if this is your first time visiting Myanmar the experience can be quite overwhelming which is why reading a backpackers travel guide to Bagan can be extremely helpful. In this backpackers travel guide to Bagan I will let you in on all the top things to do in Bagan, where to sleep, eat and more! How Many Days To Spend In Bagan? I spent a total of four days in Bagan and in all honesty this was probably too long to spend just exploring the temples. If you were going to head further out of the main Bagan archaeological zone this would probably be the perfect amount of time to spend in Bagan.  Though, if you are just wanting to see a couple sunrises and sunsets over the temples would recommend spending three days. Trust me, at the end you will be completely templed out! Further down in this backpackers travel […]

8 of the Best Cafes in Hanoi

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

The big cities in Vietnam have a cafe culture that is virtually unknown to the rest of the world. Don’t expect a Chemex of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe with hints of blueberry and strawberry or an Aeropressed Kenyan. You might be able to locate one eventually, but not before tripping over scores of cafes serving up tumblers of coffee so dark it looks like used motor oil and smells like the most intense mocha you’ve ever had. It’s no secret that we love Vietnamese coffee and as a follow up to our very popular Saigon cafes list, we offer a list of some of our favorites in the northern capital city. Also be sure to check out our handy guide to ordering coffee in Vietnam.
