Train to Saigon

Train is probably the most popular ways of transportation in Vietnam. The country has a north-to-south distance of more than 1600 km. If you want to see the whole country, train ride is probably inevitable. Train lover myself, I take trains everywhere in the world, in Vietnam as well of course.

The train is not so fast, it took 8 hours from Nha Trang to Saigon, but I like travelling slowly. If I have more time in Vietnam probably I’ll break the trip from Hanoi to Saigon (which is more than 30 hours) into more stops, not just Nha Trang.

Ga means station, something to do with the French “gare”?

Nha Trang station is so small, there’s not even a café inside, luckily a book shop is just next door and the café inside the bookshop has a great view of the station. I think Vietnam looks great in picture.

I took the second class, costs somewhere between 15-20 euro. It was less busy after a few stops and not bad at all!

Some shots during the train ride.


Not so much to update for today, just to enjoy nice weather and relax.

Nha Trang beach

I heard you can do scuba diving and some other activities around the islands nearby, but I’m too lazy to even move 100 meters away for coffee, just grab it!

Afternoon coffee and cake.

Just eat everything at beach, anything tastes better with a view, right?

Maïs lazy, they sometimes sing.

Yeah, that’s just all I have to update ^^

I hope you enjoyed your day and have a good weekend, not until someone just has reminded me it’s almost weekeng, did I realise weekend is at the corner!

Life along the 🏍️ ride in Ha Giang, Vietnam

Riding motorbike along the winding roads in the steep hills in Ha Giang province, I’ve seen how locals live and do farming. There are several ethnicities in the region, to me they look kinda like Bolivians, maybe because of the colorful clothes they wear.

Here are some photos I took along the way so far, there should be much more but I’m a noob in motorbike, had to watch out each day’s timing, so don’t want to stop and take pictures all the time. Anyway here are some pictures.

girls playing with water running from the mountain.

little village

saw such dried grass or something everywhere, I wonder what it’s for.

I hope you like those pictures.

Have a good day to you!

Le Comptoir Général

Last year I’ve been to Paris for some short trips, I think I already shared so many different spots there, yet there’s this bar called Le Comptoir Général
that I never found a chance to share with you.

It’s a rather popular place to hang out, because you can hard find any seat there if you go on a weekend night.

random street, really really random photo lol

the bar is decorated in a very African style, I visited it before I went to Africa, haha.

You can get some snacks there in case you are hungry ^^

Great place to have a drink during the day or at night.
