A travelling experience unlike any other.



Although Vietnam wasn’t my favourite place, it has a simplistic beauty that’s unforgettable. From the busy capitol of Ho Chi Ming City to the quiet village of Hoi An, this country taught me that kindness should never be taken for granted. Stunning views and delightful food, Vietnam is a country worth visiting once in your life.

The country is very different from the north to the south and I suggest doing it in one trip. Why? Because only 5% of people who visit Vietnam return. I’m not going to be one of those 5%, even though I thought I was. The unkindness, coupled with being sold to all the time made for an unlikely return. So, if you have the time, visit the north and see Sa Pa. If you’re like me and had a week, see two major places and you’ll be content with your trip to Vietnam.
