Da Nang and the long-awaited meeting with Philip and Beata

I stayed in Da Nang for four nights and my Hotel Dangs lies perfectly very close to the Dragon Bridge. It was cool to ride the bridge when I was going to my hotel That means it is very close to the vibrant nightlife following the boulevard that follows the Hàn River and also very close to Da Nang's long beach towards the Indian Ocean. While it’s a magnificent sight at any time [...]

Tam Coc, Ha Long Bay on Land

Two days after Ha Long Bay Trip I cycled into a small town about 4 mils south Ninh Binh. If you’re looking for some slowdown time in North Vietnam, visit the serene Tam Coc village. It lies about 4 miles south Ninh Binh. Worth every penny. Tam Coc and Ngô Đồng River Through village floats Ngô Đồng, a shallow and slow flowing river. The surroundings are framed by lush green rice fields and [...]
