Any travel tips for Vietnam are welcome.

Leaving for Indochina in a week, still haven’t had much plan yet, try to travel slowly and easily this time, probably will be travelling in Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Seoul, Taiwan, etc.

Trip starts in Vietnam, so let’s start with Vietnam.

I will be in Vietnam for about 3 weeks, starting from Hanoi, exiting from Saigon, then heading to other Asian countries. Only accommodation for the first 3 days in Hanoi is planned so far.

I think I’m going to do a motorbike loop in Ha Giang area for a couple of days, the area borders China. I went to Guangxi province of China a few years ago and had a great time there, I reckon probably the landscape would be pretty similar.

After that, I’m probably going to a beach or somewhere to chill, any quieter beaches recommended?

I know Vietnam is rather developed in tourism, so probably getting around and finding accommodations won’t be a problem.

I was reading some travel blogs, people seem to like Hue, Da Lat and some other places. I saw some pictures of Vietnamese cities, I must say some cities look pretty similar to Chinese cities, of course they have more churches due to previous French colony, but where I live at the moment we have too many churches, so I don’t think I’m going to do too much such sightseeing mainly just to relax.

What I really want to do in Vietnam is:

  • I see there are many cafés and they have their own traditional coffee, I love coffee, I’ll visit a lot of cafés there.
  • I love Vietnamese food, not the those French baguette sandwiches of course, I’ve been eating too much bread nowadays. I like their noodles and satays, but I’m a noob, never been to Vietnam, so have to discover more varieties of food there. (Feel free to share any Vietnamese food that I have to try)
  • Last year I’ve been to some beaches, mostly for the tasty seafood, I see they have some really lovely islands and beaches, although I don’t think I will go specially down south for islands like Phu Quoc, so if you know any nice beaches along the coast, feel free to comment ^^ Thanks in advance.
  • I see in the south of the country, Mekong delta I mean, there are similar water markets as those in Thailand, so if I’m not too lazy, I’ll try to check it out.
  • Vietnamese traditional dress Ao Dai looks quite nice, maybe I should get one and wear it. Hopefully can find them easily for reasonable prices!
  • Because my flight is to and from Hanoi, I will stay quite a few days there, so if you have anything to mention, any tips for the city and any nice district worth taking a walk, feel free to share with me ^^

I’m looking forward to travel to Vietnam, even though it’s bear market, I’ll have to watch out my budget while travelling but still I’m excited to be on the way again!

And if you are in Vietnam lately, feel free to reach me out, maybe we could have a small Steem meetup or something, but of course I don’t have itinerary yet and don’t want to plan much in advance.

Need to pack for the trip now, talk later.

目前我特别想去的地方有北部跟中国交界处的Ha Giang山区租摩托车骑一圈,大概需要4-5天。然后去找个比较安静的海滩休息几天,胡志明市南部的湄公三角洲好像有一些有意思的跟泰国差不多的水上市场。










#SadSunday – Share Sad Music – Take Me Somewhere Nice

#SadSunday tag is created by @flipstar. “Sad music makes me happy.”

I love sad music, sad music heals me. Maybe that’s why I’m specially into post-rock, a rather emotional genre, mostly instrumental, without vocal. Sometimes can be depressing but powerful. It doesn’t make me feel depressed, but in contrast, it makes me happier somehow. I can feel a soft touch of my soul every time I listen to post-rock (yes, I listen to them very often, maybe every day).

Raw emotions, raw energy, I hope you like the track and can feel it too. One of the most famous songs in post-rock I think, Mogwai is also one of the most known post-rock bands probably. I like the song, or if there’s no vocal, can be even better, but the vocal of the song doesn’t disturb luckily. I have an extensive compilation of post-rock songs to share, thanks to #sadsunday, I’m gonna share them out in the coming weeks!

Feel free to join #sadsunday and share your favorite sad songs, no matter which genre it belongs to!

一个Steem上面的老朋友 @flipstar最近创建了一个标签叫 #sadsunday,提议大家一起来推荐伤感的音乐。我觉得很有意思,不知道你们喜欢什么样的音乐。

lonely planet

Recycling some old pictures just for once. Think they might look good when putting together.

Funny thing is that I’m actually more of a city person than nature person, I prefer city trips and always love those big cities, especially Asian big cities, such as Tokyo, Seoul, HK, Bangkok etc. Surprisingly, still can find some photos take in the nature haha.

Can you tell where those pictures were taken? Some of them are easier to recognize than others.



Have a good day!

Steem on!
