Travel Report: Vinh Trang Pagoda – The Mekong Delta, Vietnam.

May 2018. It was late afternoon and after a full day’s tour of The Mekong Delta our little minivan had begun rumbling its way back to the bright lights of Ho Chi Minh. We were all exhausted… unsurprisingly so. After all, we’d cruised down The Mekong River, cycled our way through Non Thanh Village and […]

Travel Report: Bui Vien Street – Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.

May 2018. Ho Chi Minh’s action-packed Bui Vien Street is the city’s premier backpacker haven. Just think of a Vietnamese Khao San Road and you’ll know where I’m coming from. Stuffed full of restaurants, cafes, bars, massage parlors, travel agents, shops and even a dodgy dentist, pretty much every creature comfort you could pine for […]

Travel Report: Lau Thu Homestay – Cham Island, Vietnam.

May 2018. Cham Island’s accommodation scene is still pretty undeveloped, with just a couple of hostels and a scattering of homestays that provide an authentic experience right in the home of a local family. Having read some excellent reviews online, I opted to stay with Lau Thu Homestay in Bai Huong Village. This modest two-floor […]
