The Best Movies Set in Vietnam: Travel from the Comfort of Your Couch!

Seeing a destination on the screen instead of actually going there has several advantages.

Two Weeks in Vietnam: The Ultimate Holiday Itinerary

If you asked me a few years ago to suggest a two week Vietnam itinerary I’d have said skip it altogether and go to Thailand or Laos. My first trip to Vietnam was a let down, but I’ve been a few times since and have grown to love this thin

2016 was a quieter year of travel for me. I spent close to half of it in Vietnam, working hard on becoming a professional travel blogger and living cheap in Hoi An. I came to love this historic city and its laid-back countryside surrounds. On a few occasions I rented a
