Visiting Vietnam’s Cu Chi tunnels by speedboat premium
While on holiday, would you like to crawl on your hands and knees through centipede-infested, stinking hot, dirty, cramped, hand-dug tunnels? Oddly enough, thousands of tourists do this every day at the Cu Chi tunnels war memorial park near Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. The Cu Chi tunnels were hand-dug by members of the […]

A honeymoon in Vietnam – splurge in Hoi An! premium
When we decided to visit Vietnam for our honeymoon, we knew that we would stay in cheap accommodation much of the time – after all, a $30/night room in Southeast Asia is much better than a $100/night room in New Zealand, so why would you pay big bucks? But honeymoons being the somewhat fancy holidays […]

Vietnam To Laos Day 27: A Confusing Ride South premium
I rode south out of sleepy Savannakhet on Route 13. The road passed through uninteresting countryside. There were ugly little towns along the highway, patches of dirt, scrubby trees, industry. It was not a photogenic ride, and I didn’t take any pictures. I was dreaming of selling my bike to the guy who contacted me […]

Custom Clothes in Hoi An: Why Women Need Tailors Too premium
A tailored suit. I think we’ve all heard the phrase. I can definitely affirm that a nice custom tailored suit does magical things for men. Barney Stinson sure wasn’t lying. But why is it that men get to have all the fun? Women deserve a nice tailored outfit too. We have such a diverse range […]

Vietnam To Laos Day 26: Sleepy Savannakhet premium
Maybe I use the word “sleepy” too much to describe Laos, but it is a fitting word. If I went back to my guesthouse in Savannakhet after 8 pm, I would have to wake the owner up so he could unlock the gate and let me in. My plan for today was to walk around […]

Vietnam To Laos Day 25: Going South premium
It was hard to sleep last night because of the huge karaoke party next to my hotel. I woke up tired at 7. I only had 130 km to Savannakhet, so I figured I’d get my bike checked first. I went back to the guys who change my oil. They didn’t want to tackle the […]

Sampling the best of Ho Chi Minh City’s food with XO Tours premium
Beep beep beeeeeeep! Zoom zoom! With wind in our hair and the sun setting in the distance, we weaved around other motorbikes on the chaotic streets of Ho Chi Minh City, sitting behind our Ao Dai-clad drivers. We were on a Foodie Tour with XO Tours, and we were going to eat ourselves silly across […]

Vietnam To Laos Day 24: Closing The Loop premium
Today was my third and final day of riding The Loop, and the day I would visit Kong Lor cave. The cave was very near my idyllic resort, so I headed there first. I was able to share a boat with an Italian couple, lowering the price substantially. I’m not much of a cave enthusiast, […]

Beautiful Bai Tu Long Bay, Vietnam – stay away from Ha Long! premium
Ha Long Bay and its thousands of limestone islands and turquoise waters evoke an image in travellers’ minds of a mystical place, serene and beautiful. Unfortunately, mass tourism has taken over Ha Long Bay and what was once a quiet, lovely place is now filled with many tour boats and even some booze cruises playing […]
