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. Though apartment exchanges are rare in Asia, there are plenty of expats and locals alike who will be vacating their adobe and happy to have someone trustworthy in ... Read More »

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 »

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.

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.

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 »

ベトナム物流規制~新政令第163号~大きな変更点なし

by Manfred Otto @ Duane Morris Vietnam

メディア報道と異なり、ベトナムの新物流規制は外国人投資家に対して市場を更に開放せず、新たにeコマース規制の順守要件を明記しています。 2018年2月20日施行のロジスティクス・サービスに関する政令第163/2017/ND-CP号により、旧政令第140/2007/ND-CP号が効力を失います。多くの外国人投資家は物流分野において、更なる明確化及び市場アクセスを望んでいました。少なくても書面上、新政令第163号は外国人投資家に新たな権利を付与するものではなく、実務上不明確な点が新しく出てくるかもしれません。一方、最も興味深い新条項は、物流プロセスのデジタル化に影響を及ぼす可能性があります。 ベトナムがWTOに加盟した2007年に発行された政令第140号は、ベトナム基準からみれば、非常に古い規制です。その後、法改正が大分進み、物流部門の多くの事業活動を含む、ほとんどのサービス部門が外国人投資家に開放されました。新政令第163号のいくつかの要点を以下に述べます。 I.「ロジスティクス」の再定義 外国人投資家(及び外国投資を受け入れたいベトナム企業)は、ベトナムで営む予定の各事業活動について外資規制などの条件が適用されるかどうかを細かく確認しなければなりません。旧政令第140号は、2005年の商法第233条を参照し、「ロジスティクス」を定義していました。新政令第163号の3条は、以下のロジスティクス・サービスを規制しています。 政令第163号3条におけるロジスティクス・サービス コンテナ積降サービス(空港でのサービスを除く) 海運補助サービスの一環としてのコンテナヤード・サービス 全ての運送手段の補助サービスの一環としてのコンテナ・サービス 配達サービス 貨物運送代理サービス 税関仲介サービス(通関サービスを含む) 次の活動を含むその他のサービス:運送証券検査、貨物運送仲介サービス、貨物鑑定、サンプリング採取及び重量判定、貨物の受取、受入サービス、運送証書準備サービス 貨物の保管、回収、仕分けの管理や貨物の分類、配送を含む卸売及び小売補助サービス 海運サービスの一環としての貨物運送サービス 内陸水路運送サービスの一環としての貨物運送サービス 鉄道運送サービスの一環としての貨物運送サービス 道路運送サービスの一部としての貨物運送サービス 空輸サービス 複合運送サービス 技術分析、検定サービス その他の運送サポートサービス 物流サービス提供者が商法の基本原理に従って顧客との合意に基づく提供するその他のサービス 「配達サービス」及び「その他の運送サービス」に関して、第3条に詳細が定義されていません。政令の作成者はおそらく、ベトナムのWTOサービス・セクター・コミットメント(WTOSSC)で使われている国連の中央生産物分類(CPC)コードと比較できるベトナム標準産業分類システム(VSIC)を参照することを意図していました。例えば、VSIC 5230の「配達サービス」には、「貨物運送サービス」でカバーされていない郵便物および小包の配送が含まれます。 VSIC 5320 は、「速配サービス」を含むWTOSSCの「クーリエサービス」(CPC 7512 courier services)に類似しています。新政令第163号の「配達サービス」及びWTOSSCの「クーリエサービス」は外国人保有比率の制限がありません。これは外資系宅配便業者にとって、良いニュースでしょう。 II.外国人保有比率の制限(FOL)について変更なし WTOSSC及び旧政令第140号には、FOL及び市場開放のスケジュールが既に規定されていました。新政令第163号には、この点について変更点がみられません。また、新政令は様々な貨物関連サービスのFOLなどの基本条件を定めていますが、旅客運送サービスについては何も語っていません。 以下の表は、物流部門における主要な外国人保有比率の上限をまとめたものです。簡略化した表であり、それらの業務に追加的条件が適用されます。その上、外国人投資家には更なる条件が適用されます。例えば、最大49%の外国資本を持つ海上貨物運送会社は、ベトナムで船舶を登録し、ベトナム国旗を掲げられますが、非ベトナム人の船員は最大3分の1のみとなります。船長及び第一副船長はベトナム国民ではなければなりません。政令第163号の他の条件と同様に、これは新しいものではなく、既にWTOSSCで定められていました。 ベトナムの物流部門における外国人保有比率の制限(FOL) WTOSSC 政令第163号 CPC サービス分類 FOL FOL 742 倉庫 100% 748 貨物運送代理(貨物輸送サービスを含む) 100% 749 貨物所有者に代わり、船荷証券検査、貨物仲介、貨物検査、サンプリング及び計量、商品の入荷受取サービス、運送書類作成 99% 99% 7211 海運 (国内の顧客輸送) 49% … Continue reading ベトナム物流規制~新政令第163号~大きな変更点なし

Rolled Rice Pancake or Bánh Cuốn

Rolled Rice Pancake or Bánh Cuốn

by tourismvn @ tourismvn

Among other members of the extended noodle family, bánh cuốn almost ranks first. It is a paper-thin steamed rice flour pancake, much like delicate sheets of fresh rice noodles. The pancakes are plucked off of the linen steamer base, and immediately rolled with minced pork and mushrooms, then piled on a plate, sprinkled with deep fried shallots, snipped with scissors into bite sized sections, and topped with fresh herbs such as cilantro or Vietnamese basil. A plate of bánh cuốn is a light dish traditionally eaten as breakfast in Hanoi but now can also be found as a late night snack.

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 »
