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 »

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 ...

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 »

‘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 »

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 »

Do I need vaccinations for traveling in Asia?

It’s worth reading up before you go to the doctor. My doctor wanted to give me a few vaccinations that you really only need if you’re hitting the countryside. If you plan on hiking, camping or just hanging out in small villages then you might need them but otherwise just go for the basics.

For malaria, it’s not a vaccination but a series of tablets. I took them once and they made me really sick so I’ve not bothered since. You need to be vigilant against mosquitoes in SE Asia anyway because of Dengue etc which I think is more important than taking the tablets.

I came away with a sinking feeling, convinced we’re all going to be sick or even die, either from terrible tropical disease or from the toxic vaccinations themselves. I can also feel a big financial headache coming on, probably a migraine. …

Spending Three Days & Two Nights in a Third World Hospital

As soon as we enter the hospital, everything is a mad dash. I give them my first name and my age. That’s it. It’s all they need to know. The dim hallways feel intimidating. Dirty footprints appear on the wet floors as soon as a woman finishes mopping them, undoing her hard work. The doctors […]

How to Organize a Small Bathroom

How to Organize a Small Bathroom

by @ How to of the Day

With a bit of careful organizing, you can make a small bathroom feel spacious and tidy. Divide your cabinet space with storage containers and baskets. Make use of every inch of wall space by hanging floating shelves up to the ceiling and over the toilet. You can even add racks, rods, or more storage on the back of the door. Embrace creative storage options, like glass jars, for odds and ends.

How to Treat Type 2 Diabetes Naturally

How to Treat Type 2 Diabetes Naturally

by @ How to of the Day

Type 2 diabetes often begins with an insulin resistance, which causes the pancreas to overwork itself and eventually start producing less insulin. This low production of insulin can cause the blood sugar levels in your body to drop. There is no quick cure or reversal for type 2 diabetes, but you can take steps to make living with it manageable. Natural treatments like following a balanced, clean diet and exercising regularly can help to keep your blood sugar under control. You can also try taking plant-based supplements to regulate your insulin levels naturally, though you should still take diabetes medication if it is prescribed to you. If you experience any adverse effects while taking supplements or your medication, speak to your doctor right away.

How to Diagnose Lymphoma

by @ How to of the Day

Lymphoma is a group of blood cancers that develop in the lymphatic system. They are generally divided into 2 groups, Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, although the term non-Hodgkin lymphoma encapsulates a variety of lymphomas. Both general types of lymphoma have similar basic symptoms, so if you spot them you won't initially know what type of lymphoma might be developing. Lymphoma is properly diagnosed by identifying common symptoms and then getting a medical diagnosis. In order to give a proper diagnosis, your doctor will run a variety of tests on you, typically including imaging and a biopsy of one of your lymph nodes.

Desert Oasis

by Noah Kirsch @ International Travel Health Blog

Amman is a city that unfolds itself slowly. At first glance, it is little more than a launch pad from which to visit more coveted destinations like Petra or the Wadi Rum desert. But belying its modest facade—the streets congested with restless cab drivers, the shawarma often drab and slathered with mayo, the blaring calls to prayer that interrupt each night of sleep—is a dynamic metropolis with more complexity than any place I have encountered.

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:

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 »

How to Grow Scoby

How to Grow Scoby

by @ How to of the Day

“Scoby” is an acronym for Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast. When added to sweet black tea, Scoobies transform the beverage into kombucha tea, which is a natural probiotic that can be energizing and also improve gut health. If you’re tired of buying expensive kombucha tea by the bottle and want to make your own at home, it starts with growing your own scoby. To do this, you’ll need to make black sweet tea, put it in a jar with a bottle of kombucha tea, and leave it in a warm, dark place for a few weeks. Then, you can remove the scoby and use it to make a fresh batch of homemade kombucha tea.

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.

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 »

How to Make a Kite

by @ How to of the Day

Kites are fun to make and fly outside on a nice, slightly windy day. Making a simple diamond kite is an easy craft project you can complete in one afternoon. Start by making the frame for the kite. Then, measure and cut the sail for the kite in the shape of a diamond. Finish up the kite by adding the flying line and the tail to ensure it flies properly. You can also decorate the kite when it is done so it looks extra pretty as it soars in the air.
