Laos Stopover (Luang Prabang) 4 Days

by root @ Products – Nexus Holidays

Laos is a unique, landlocked nation, sandwiched in the midst of the Southeast Asian mainland. Culturally a cousin to Thailand, but politically linked to Vietnam's and China's communist governments, Laos has remained a slow-moving backwater into the 21st century. With road, rail, and river access rapidly opening up through massive Chinese-funded infrastructure development, now is a great time to gain a feeling for the fading era of French Indochina, and for the colourful Buddhist culture of pre-modern Southeast Asia. This package takes in the charming traditional cultural and architectural highlights of the former royal capital Luang Prabang, and the surrounding area, visiting local natural attractions and providing immersive cultural experiences.

Highlights
  • Cruise along the Mekong River to Pak Ou Caves, which have been filled with thousands of Buddha images over the centuries
  • Sample locally-made rice wine in a riverside village, and shop in the Luang Prabang Night Market
  • Learn to cook Lao dishes with a Buddhist monk at a local temple
  • Walk along the forested paths or spend time in the refreshing aquamarine pools of Kuang Si Waterfall
  • Admire the gilded carvings and dramatic architecture of the traditional Lao temples - Wat Xieng Thong, Wat Mai, and Wat Visoun

Chiang Mai Stopover Holiday 4 Days

by root @ Products – Nexus Holidays

Northern Thailand, in the famous Thai phrase, is 'same-same but different' from the world of Bangkok and the the central plains, from the 'Lao' Northeast, and from the steamy south. With a cooler climate, mountainous terrain, and a diverse population of minority 'hill tribe' communities, the region that was once an independent kingdom known as Lan Na ('One Million Rice Fields') has it's own distinctive place in the Southeast Asian mosaic. From rivalry with Central Thai Ayutthaya, to domination by the Burmese, to eventual absorption into modern Thailand, the North has retained its characteristic differences and diversity. You'll taste different flavours, see different architecture, and hear different languages as you explore the cities and cultures of Thailand's mountainous north.

Highlights:
  • Enjoy sweeping views of Chiang Mai - the 'capital of the North' - from Wat Doi Suthep temple
  • Marvel the modern architectural wonder of 'the White Temple' - Wat Rong Khun in Chiang Rai
  • Wander among the fascinating buildings, decor, and art installations of the unique Black Village
  • Visit the Opium Museum at the Golden Triangle area where the borders of Thailand, Burma and Laos meet

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.

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 »

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.

Why “Nguyễn” is the most popular surname of Vietnamese?

by Thu Ngo Vu @ Beebee

According to World Geography, the surname ‘Nguyễn’ ranks the fourth most popular one in the world. In Vietnam, it makes up 38,4% of Vietnam’s population and undoubtedly becomes a common identity signal for Vietnamese people on the international stage. Why it is so popular? The answer lies in the history of Vietnam. For hundreds of years, ancient China’s disorder society made a part of ‘Nguyễn’ family migrate to Vietnam. In 1232, after the Ly Dynasty was usurped, Tran Thu Do forced descendants of the Ly family to change their surname into ‘Nguyễn’. In 1407, the Ho Dynasty collapsed, his descendants...

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 »
