Hot Hot Hot Hanoi

Hot Hot Hot Hanoi

After the epic travel from Hue to Hanoi…I still cannot believe I survived. Alannah and I crashed out in the lounge of Hanoi Backpackers, a place we would be in a state of constant disbelief (watch this space for the Halong Bay Party Tour), but for today a place...

Hue for the Day

16th – 17th May 2012   Armed with one of my suits and feeling satisfied for my time in Hoi An, I was eagerly awaiting Hue. I don’t know why but I especially wanted to go to Hue since reading about it. An ancient capital serving Vietnam, it’s...
