Here’s Why You Should Consider Taking More Trips on High Speed Rails Than Flights

Things to Do in Ho Chi Minh City on Your First Visit

Things to Do in Ho Chi Minh City on Your First Visit


There She Goes Again

To be perfectly honest, I really didn’t know what to expect from this place! While I was noting the top things to do in Ho Chi Minh City, I was constantly overwhelmed by its sheer size. I was also a lot more worried about the “hectic” adjective a lot of travel bloggers liked to tack on as a descriptor, worrying I’d be in a concrete jungle lost in a sea of motorbikes, clinging to my purse in fear. However, I was totally wrong. While, yes, there is a certain craziness about HCMC, it’s also got a ton of charm, probably best reflected in its architecture. It actually became one of my favorite cities in my Vietnam trip. Most of the bigger sites can be found within District 1, which is very easy to do all by foot. If I had had more time, I would have loved to venture out to the other districts where a lot of the more traditional, pre-French Colonial structures are. However, I really only had my feet to take me around and a full day for all of it. To make your list searching easier, I thought I’d outline some of the places to see! Tips on Visiting Ho Chi Minh City VISAS If you're a U.S. traveler, yes, you DO need a visa to enter the country even as a tourist. Unlike Cambodia, you can't just do everything at the airport. You'll need to get a letter of approval online first. Print it and bring it with you. You'll then pay around $25 USD there to get the actual visa in your passport. You can use iVisa to handle getting your letter of approval or even doing an e-visa and paying online instead of waiting until you arrive. Check their quotes here. GETTING THERE I actually found a decent deal with Asiana Airlines, my favorite since 2011! Michelle flew the budget VietJetAir, which she said was okay. I booked mine on Expedia, but I've also been impressed with Kiwi lately, especially if you're on more of a budget. As for getting into the city, I had my hostel arrange a driver for $13, which I paid to him, not the driver. Klook actually has a cheaper deal. It's $12/car that seats up to 4 and $14/car that seats up to 7. WHERE TO STAY I got a private room at Lily Hostel since I was traveling alone for the first few days. I really enjoyed my stay, and the owners were super kind. It's on Bui Ven, which is a big backpacker road, and it's in walking distance of all the major attractions in District 1. I wrote a whole review here about it, and you can check prices on Agoda here. In general, if you want to see the main sites of HCMC, stay in District 1 or nearby. The nicer, luxury hotels are in the same area, which is close to the Opera House and Nguyen Hue Street. GETTING AROUND I would recommend not getting on motorbikes here. It's ultimately up to you though. I took taxis a few times, but mostly I just walked. Actually one day, I wanted to challenge myself, so I only took my camera, some money, and a paper map that I had made little notes on. MONEY + SAFETY I took out money at ATMs just fine. I have Citibank, and there were actually a few Citibanks in the city as well as an ATM right at the airport. In terms of safety, just take precautions. I never felt unsafe, but I was also in the most popular area during the day. WHAT TO WEAR You're fine with whatever you want to wear. HCMC is quite humid, even when I was there in February, so dress in loose, comfortable fabrics. TRAVEL INSURANCE Check with your insurance at home and see if they cover you abroad. You do want some sort of insurance for Vietnam just in case, especially if you plan on using a motorbike! If your insurance at home doesn't cover you, get a quote on World Nomads. It's really quite cheap and covers a lot of things. SIM CARD + WIFI I just picked up a SIM card at the airport, but every time I tried to recharge it during my trip it never seemed to work. There are probably better options, like this 3G Wifi deal with Klook. It's only $5/day and you can connect up to 8 devices. TOUR OPTIONS While it's very easy to wander around District 1 by foot, it may be easier to go on one of these tours. I actually think I enjoy going on some sort of tour first and then wander on my own for the rest of my trip. You usually have a local guide who can tell you about the history and culture more than a guidebook could, and it's a nice way to feel at ease in a new place. Here are some tours that include what I've added below: Saigon Motorbike Adventures What's HCMC without its crazy motorbike reputation? If you want to experience riding around on a motorbike but without the fear or bargaining, then this might be the best option for you. There are different packages, including street food options. Check prices + packages here. Another motorbike option is the Saigon City Tour by Motorbike. Cyclos & Markets Tour Another way of getting around is hanging out in the cyclos (three wheel bikes). The tour includes a few different landmarks as well as a visit to the War Remanents Museum. And, of course, it's more eco-friendly than motorbikes or buses. Check prices here. Saigon Half Day Tour Pretty standard half day tour. This is the general group option, but it might be nice to do the private option, which isn't that much more. Top Things to Do in Ho Chi Minh City Drink ca phe su dua. Scratch that, become mildly addicted to ca phe sua da. Oh sweet, Vietnamese coffee. Made with condensed milk, it's so flippin' good, I still dream about it and try to make it on my own. You're going to want to try this and then drink it the rest of your trip! It's all around, the city, and only $1-2, so indulge! Get a view of the city from Bitexco Tower. This is the place to go if you want a landscape view of Ho Chi Minh! You can go to the observation deck on the 49th floor or go up to the 52nd floor and eat or grab a drink at EON 51. Cost: 200,000 VND Times: Observation Deck: 9:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. (ticket sales end at 8:45 p.m.), EON 51 Menu, 8:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m. Address: Tòa nhà tài chính Bitexco, 2 Hải Triều, Bến Nghé Visit the War Remnants Museum. Of all the things to do in Ho Chi Minh City, visiting the War Remnants Museum is the most sobering. Give yourself enough time to wander through because it’s a lot to take in. It’s divided into different parts with a recommended order, and you can see the varying effects the war had on Vietnam. Before you go, I'd do some research so you know what to expect. Crash Courses has a good video that lays down the basics. Cost: 15,000 VND Times:  7:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m., 1:30 p.m.- 5:00 p.m. Address: 28 Võ Văn Tần Visit the Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica of Saigon. Built in the mid-1800s after France took over the city, it’s official name is Basilica of Our Lady of The Immaculate Conception. Its bricks were imported from France, and it was considered the loveliest cathedral among the French colonies. It’s an excellent starting point to explore the area. Cost: Free Times: 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Address: Bến Nghé Send a postcard from the Saigon Central Post Office. Literally, right next door to the Cathedral is the Post Office, built in the later 1800’s. It’s a mixture of French, Renaissance, and Gothic architecture. Inside is spacious and lovely, and it’s still functioning! If you can, get a postcard to send! Cost: Free Times: 6:00 a.m. – 10 p.m. Address: 2 Công xã Paris, Bến Nghé Snap a photo of Saigon Opera House. A few blocks down and past the swanky hotels (Hyatt, Continental), you’ll find the Opera house nestled in the midst. This is also probably the fanciest part of Ho Chi Minh City because it’s also where I stumbled across the big name brand stores. Built at the turn of the twentieth century, its majestic style is similar to Le Petit Palais found in France. Cost: Free, though I never went in and photographed it from the outside Times: Opening hours vary. Address: 7 Lam Son Square Walk near the Ho Chi Minh City Supreme People’s Court There’s not a lot of information out there on this building. According to this Google search, it’s in the beginning stages of restoration. It’s hard to not walk by at some point, and with its bright yellow and blue color scheme, you’re not going to miss it. Address: 131 Nam Kỳ Khởi Nghĩa Enjoy Nguyen Hue Street! This seems to be the main street of Ho Chi Minh City. I was there on Tet and it was flooded with people in their best outfits taking photos with the flowers. It’s absolutely gorgeous! Walk along the whole thing and enjoy the colors and cheerful crowds. Head up to 42 Nguyen Hue Street (an old looking building with a sketchy entrance) and find Saigon Oi, a delicious coffee shop, for a lovely view of the whole street! I also loved Parttea, a cute English tea room. Address: Nguyễn Huệ Eat Banh Mi outside City Hall. At the front end of Nguyen Hue is HCMC’s City Hall (or known as the People’s Committee Hall). It’s a massive structure with a plaza in front of it for viewing. It’s an awesome meeting point, and it’s nice to hang out and eat some Banh Mi with friends. Banh Mi is this delicious baguette sandwich, and you can buy it from one of the ladies with stalls nearby. Address: Lê Thánh Tôn For more food options in HCMC, you may want to check out this street food tour. Take a Day Trip to the Mekong Delta. Since I was kind of nervous visiting Vietnam on my own, I booked a full day tour as soon as I arrived. I'd wanted to see the Mekong Delta anyway, and it was the perfect way for me to get comfortable in a new country. Also, it's pretty much impossible to visit on your own. I wrote a post reviewing my day trip and what you'll see exactly if you want more info. If you have more time, you can actually stay overnight in the Mekong at a homestay, which I always thought would be a unique experience. Here are some Mekong Delta Tours: Full Day Excursion - This is pretty much the tour I did. You're in a bigger group and get taken around the different islands and learn more about the Delta region. Check prices and packages here. Mekong Delta River Cruise - If you want something a little more luxurious and more intimate, you might like this tour. Check prices here. Cai Be Floating Market and Tan Phon Island Tour - I actually wanted to go to the Cai Be Floating market, but since I was visiting around Tet, it was actually closed for the holidays. This is a great option if you're more interested in Mekong's culinary and food history. Check prices here.

Textile Tribes of Vietnam: The Ha Nhi’s Traditional Textiles & Rapunzel-esque Hair

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

The Ha Nhi are one of the most decoratively dressed but elusive ethnic groups in Vietnam. The various sub groups that encompass this diverse culture reside in mud clad houses, sloping up the mountain sides of Lao Cai and Lai Chau. Each Ha Nhi village dons differently styled traditional attire, showcasing a multitude of textile skills across the region.  In 2017 Haute Culture visited the Ha Nhi of Y Ti village numerous times and built relationships with artisans there. Together, we developed a textile workshop for our annual Hill Tribe Textile Tour of Vietnam. In Y Ti, the residents wear a unique black cotton ensemble meticulously appliquéd with motifs made of coloured cording and a stunning head dress braided from black acrylic yarn and real human hair.  Who are the Ha Nhi The Ha Nhi are a collective of different ethnic sub groups living in the north of Vietnam. They speak their own language, which is said to be similar to the Akha people living in Thailand and Laos. Before 1986, the Ha Nhi were known to farm poppies for the opium trade. The Vietnamese government have since illegalised the trade, so they now live off the rice they grow on their terraces and keep […]

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 »

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 »

5 Of The Best Dressed Destinations To Get Your Freak On This Halloween

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Halloween or All Hallows Eve is by far our favorite annual celebration. Traditionally a Pagan turned Christian holiday for remembering the dead, today Halloween is a fully fledged festival treading the fine line between fun and fearsome. It’s a wonderful holiday that encourages people to embrace creativity, let go of your inhibitions and celebrate inner fears. Here’s Haute Culture’s top five global Halloween parties on our blood filled bucket list.  1. GREENWICH VILLAGE HALLOWEEN PARADE, NEW YORK CITY, USA The NYC Halloween parade is the biggest in the world. Sexuality, politics and pop culture infuse through many of the costume designs and all combine to create a hedonistic spectacle of epic proportions. This year, 60,000 participants are expected to attend. The 2016 parade included a papier mache Trump, whilst the 2001 parade was themed ‘Phoenix Rising’. A phoenix puppet led the parade to represent the strength of New Yorkers in the wake of 9/11. A troupe of dancing rod-puppet skeletons always lead the way, dancing through the streets of the city for one day of the year, celebrating the life and soul of NYC.  31st October 2017 http://halloween-nyc.com/ 2. DIA DE MUERTOS, MEXICO CITY, MEXICO. Whilst The Day of the Dead is […]

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:

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 »

by Pedro @ Travel with Pedro

Shoreditch is one of those neighbourhoods that reappeared from the ashes. Yes, the Phoenix comparison is an old cliché, but it’s totally true. Up to the end of the 1990s, this was a very run down, a working-class area that wasn’t among the best, despite its proximity to Central London. But today, Shoreditch is one […]

Purépecha Style, An Indigenous Identity Stitched With Pride

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

The Purépecha are an indigenous group of people located in Michoacán state Northwest of Mexico city. They speak their own language and reside predominately in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Oriental mountain range on a volcanic plateau surrounded by forests and lakes. The women of this region dress in a style soaked with Spanish influences and stitched with stories of folk life. The Purépecha people were a considerable pre-columbian civilization that maintained their independence from Aztec Empire despite numerous failed conquest attempts. It wasn’t until the 1530s when the Purépecha were eventually overruled by the Spanish conquistadors and their armies. Despite being converted to Catholicism the region has managed to maintain it’s rich traditional customs, as well as it’s reputation for producing folk art and fine crafts. Copper, carpentry, painting, ceramics and textiles have been traded by the same towns for over a thousand years, making Purépecha products some of the finest and most sought after in Mexico and beyond. The Purépecha people have a well earned sense of passion and pride about their artist ancestry and culture. This can be witnessed on the local women who strut their textile skills daily on their traditional dress. Purépecha women have a distinctive ethnographic dress adapted from […]

SURVIVING BORACAY ALONE

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

In March of 2012, I was nearly finished with a 3-week journey moving west through the Visayas region of The Philippines. Visayas is famous for beach and diving destinations. I have never been very interested in beaches, so I was focused on the cities of Cebu, Dumaguete, Bacolod, Iloilo and Kalibo. I did, however, have a beach destination as my final stop before flying out of the country. That beach was the most famous beach in all of The Philippines- Boracay. I was all by my sad self during these weeks in the Philippines. I’d met people here and there along the way, but I didn’t join a backpacker caravan or fall in love. So, how is it traveling to Boracay alone, anyway?

Often beach destinations entice travelers of impossibly clear turquoise waters bookended by eternal sunrises and sunsets. So often, ... Read More »

The 5 Best Night Markets in Taipei

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Taipei is inarguably one of the top street food cities in the world. Taiwan is known as the land of snacks: they have literally invented and re-invented genre after genre of snack food over the years. From pearl tea to fried chicken, the Taiwanese are all about inventing and perfecting the ultimate snack foods. Think Chinese-influenced foods created with the ingenuity and dedication to perfection that (you would think) only the Japanese would bring. While Taipei isn’t quite as famous with local Taiwanese as Tainan for their snack culture, they’ve got it covered and will most likely be your first stop in Taiwan. The sheer volume of street food options available alone are enough but, matched with the quality and price of the food available on the streets, it’s pretty much unbeatable.

Things to Do in Ho Chi Minh City

Things to Do in Ho Chi Minh City


Booking.com

Saigon, you’ve got it goin’ on. This bustling metropolis – officially called Ho Chi Minh City – pulsates with a unique energy. Plunge in head-first and you’ll be immersed in an intoxicating swirl of lively markets, succulent street-food stalls and cool rooftop bars.

10 things to do in Ho Chi Minh City

10 things to do in Ho Chi Minh City


The Independent

The whirlwind formally known as Saigon is a hot, noisy, dynamic city that rarely sleeps, with a complex history and plenty of culture to soak up. Combine this with the laughably good-value prices of everything from lodgings to lunch, and there’s never been a better time to explore this south Vietnamese gem. Here are 10 ways to make the most of a visit.

48 hours in Seoul: Shopping, Sightseeing, Ceremonies and Shows!

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Seoul is a thoroughly modern city that dances to a consumerist beat. The enthusiasm for style, fashion and visual identity here is fuelled by centuries of design traditions and a rich cultural heritage that carries through to contemporary life. There’s plenty to do, see and experience, but the metropolis can be overwhelming if on a short itinerary. Here’s my 48 hour snap shot for people that love fashion, textiles, art and culture. Day 1 9am Start your trip by stepping back in time to visit Bukchon Hanok Village in the heart of the city. This traditional village is totally beautiful, with hundreds of Hanok houses that date back to the Joseon dynasty, maintained till today. It’s free to wander around but I definitely recommend renting a Hanbok to do so in. Make the most of the photo opportunities under the sloping roofs that rise up through the village. 11am Insadong Street is where to go for traditional antiques and cute crafts. Pick up some trinkets at the flea market, get your own personalised stamp and if you’re lucky, strike gold in one of the many vintage shops. It’s a lovely spot to stop for lunch – try and get a table […]

1000s of La Catrina Parade Through The Streets of Mexico For Día de Muertos 2017

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Over 1000 costume lovers paraded through Morelia in Mexico yesterday dressed as the cultural icon of death, La Calavera Catrina.  Held on the first day of Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), families, friends and foreigners flooded the city’s streets for the second year running to see the spectacular congregation of elegant skeletons march towards the central Cathedral. “Death is democratic, because in the end, the mother, the brunette, the rich or the poor, all the people end up being skulls” – José Guadalupe Posada La Calavera Catrina was an illustration created by the Mexican political print maker Jose Guadalupe Posada (1852–1913). Published in local papers the early 1910’s at the start of the Mexican Revolution, the elegant looking skeleton was designed to mock Mexico’s Euro-centric elite, who were believed to be abandoning their indigenous heritage by starting to emulate the fashions and mannerisms of Europeans from Paris and London. Today La Catrina has been fully absorbed into Mexico’s annual festival of the dead and can be seen on everything from t-shirts to porcelain dolls, reminding everyone that no matter how beautiful we are on the outside, we will all end up looking the same in the grave. The costume […]

14 Reasons Vietnam Is The Best Destination For Textiles Right Now

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Call me biased, but I say with conviction that Vietnam is the most unique and authentic country in South-East Asia. It has 54 distinct ethnic groups, many with their own language, lifestyle and long traditions that have been passed down through the generations. Between the tribal traditions, natural beauty of the landscape, incredible food and hospitable hosts, Vietnam is a must visit country worthy of anyones travel list.  However. Vietnam is rapidly changing, and the changes affect all of it’s diverse people. Increased access to technology, media and mass produced goods are making the world a smaller, more generic place. In Vietnam, this is as evident amongst the younger generations of indigenous ethnic groups whom are now being exposed to a new way of life and opportunities previously unknown to their elders. Naturally, these young people are affected by what they see happening across the country, and they strive to fit in to a culture that was never their own in order to earn their place in the new world encroaching on them. As a result, traditional visual identities through dress are rapidly beginning to evolve, or worse, becoming extinct. This makes Vietnam one of the best destinations for anyone […]

The 6 Best Shopping Destinations in Seoul

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Shopping in South Korea is a serious business. In fact, it might seem that all South Korean’s do is shop. But having explored the shopping districts of the city, I can sympathise. The diversity found in Korean design is exhilarating, as are the multitude of markets selling fabrics, haberdashery and handicrafts. There are way too many to mention them all, but these six destinations were particular favourites of mine. Within them I found everything that is integral to contemporary Korean style, from antiques to Hanboks, vintage fashion to cultural crafts, and stylish concept stores to sensational street food. Exploring the city in this style will serve you well. If you love shopping you’re gonna love Seoul, so let yourself get sucked into the mad but exciting consumerist culture that South Korea has to offer. Dongdaemun Market Dongdaemun market is one of the biggest haberdashery and fabric markets that I’ve ever had the joy to visit. There are over 50,000 manufacturers selling wholesale clothing, fabric, trimming and unique fashion items. The maze-like mini-metropolis is spread over two buildings and six floors. Give yourself plenty of time to explore this cave-of-wonders. The crowd here is mixed; expect to bustle your way through […]

‘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 »

The Handsome Hanbok & Where to Buy One in Seoul

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

The Hanbok is the traditional dress of Korea, worn by men and women, rich and poor, across the north and the south for over 1600 years. Throughout this time, its general design was similar to the sloping eaves of the Korean traditional house – the hanok – with a soft division of lines and angles. Throughout the centuries, it’s obviously maintained its popularity for good reason. It’s a garment of pure beauty, synonymous with Korean aesthetics and tradition. Thoroughly theatrical and distinct, it’s hard to not admire the strong visual structure of the hanging sleeves, bulging full-length skirt, floral detailing and pretty bows. Women’s Hanboks are comprised of two elements: the jeogori (cropped blouse) and the chima (skirt). It’s said that the wide curved arms of the jeogori represent the warmth of the embrace of the Korean people, and the wide flowing chima symbolises space and freedom. A sad representation, given the borders that now divide the Korean people. Under neath the dress is special type of (adorable) Hanbok underwear and a petticoat which adds the fullness to the silhouette. The whole look is completed with accessories such as a Norigae (hanging good luck charm) and hair accessories. The loose cut of the style […]

How to get to Ihwa Mural Village in Seoul

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Just a ten minutes uphill walk along Seoul city wall near Daehakno district  sits the Ihwa Mural Village. Climbing away from the city, the air clears, the noise stills and suddenly as you reach the very top of Mount Naksan you find a village dedicated to something quite unexpected; street art. Eleven years ago, Ihwa ‘moon village’ (so called because of it’s fantastic hill-side views of the moon) had been destined for destruction, due to it being rather run down and slum-like. Historically, moon villages were homes to the working class, who couldn’t afford housing down in the flatter, central parts of the city. The village was saved in 2006 by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, who decided to transform the village as part of their ‘Art in the City’ initiative. Artists selected by the committee were commissioned to design 64 installations under the theme of ‘Mix, Connect and Get Together’. Over the course of six months, 70 painters (including local volunteers, art college students and visiting artists) covered the village from schools to homes, underpasses to stairways, walls, fences and rooftops with beautiful and diverse murals. After having become something of a tourist attraction the once slum-like […]

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.

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

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.

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.
