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!

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN THAILAND

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand, with over 26 million foreign entries in 2016, can be a very touristic place to visit. By some accounts, 20% of the Thai GDP is based on tourism (worldwide nations average about 10%). Thailand is often an entry point for all of Asia, a constant revolving door of tourists on short or extended trips. We’re writing this article to help you avoid getting your hand caught in that often dangerous door.

Thailand is a country that can live up to its high expectations and reputation. It really can be paradise. On the other hand, it can be a disappointing place filled with drunken pub crawlers, tourist scams, empty promises and subpar made-for-tourists versions of local dishes. Pad thai made with instant noodles? You’ll find it all over Phuket and Koh Samui. If you venture past the tourists districts, the food ... Read More »

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”. You won’t see any chem-lab looking siphons or giant blown-glass drip towers. Coffee is brewed in a little metal filter called a “phin”. Grounds go in, water goes in, and coffee ... Read More »

Red Rock Canyon, Nevada

by Anda Arko @ Travel with Anda

I have visited Las Vegas several times, mostly for business and shopping. This time, during our last road trip in October, we had an extra day left before flying back home so we decided to spend the afternoon in Red Rock Canyon.

And we were more than pleasantly surprised. Red Rock Canyon is a part of USA National Parks System, which means you can use your America the Beautiful Annual Pass if you have one. Otherwise the entrance fee is only 7$ per vehicle which is a […]

The Secret Canyon – Best kept secret in Arizona, USA

by Anda Arko @ Travel with Anda

Have you ever seen the amazing photos of a narrow canyon with elegantly curved rocks, colored in 50 shades of red that seem like from another planet? Luckily, they are real and they can be found in Arizona, USA. The canyon is known as Antelope Canyon and has been attracting more and more tourists each year. In fact, it has become so popular, you have to book your tour a few days ahead (you can’t do it alone, as the land is owned by Navajo tribe) especially if you are on a road trip and can’t afford to lose time. I was dreaming of visiting this wonder of nature since the first time I laid my eyes on it, and […]

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 »

For my December business visit to Dubai I decided to book a hotel in Deira because of the vicinity of Dubai International Airport (I had an early departure flight and I didn’t want to risk getting stuck in a traffic jam). I have stayed in several hotels in Deira before and this time I wanted to try something new. I was looking for 1. convenient location, 2. at least 4-stars hotel for a reasonable price and 3. the rooms without carpets because of my ongoing allergies. Somewhere Hotel Apartment seemed to offer all that and a lot more.

8 of the Best Cafes in Hanoi

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.

10 THINGS I CAN’T TRAVEL WITHOUT

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Recently I’ve taken a four-month break off of travel to settle into a comfortable life in a quiet town. It’s been nice, mostly.

I do miss packing and unpacking the bags. I miss tossing away ripped up socks, giving away paperback books, and moving what’s left of my big shampoo into a small little shampoo thingy.

Some things are essential to have packed and ready to grab when I’m on the road. I will not include the obvious things like a camera, computer, passport, etc. These following are the little home run hitters that are easy to forget about, but always needed:

1. DENTAL FLOSS

I like to eat. I like to eat meat. I like eating late. My teeth are spaced fairly far apart from laughing too much. Stuff gets in there and I need to get it out. I’ve often been wandering ... Read More »

Enchanting Sedona, Arizona

by Anda Arko @ Travel with Anda

Imposing red rock formations that rise from the desert like skyscrapers have been on my bucket list ever since my first visit to Arizona in 2012 when I failed to see them due to the lack of time. And even this time our road trip schedule was so tight, it only allowed us one day to pass through this beautiful valley. However, one day is just enough to feel the grandeur of Sedona, stretch your legs with some modest hiking and have a great meal in one of the Uptown restaurants. The most famous landmark in Sedona is the Cathedral Rock and climbing up there is practically a must. The trail to the rock is quite short (just over one-mile […]

‘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 »

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.
