Travel Report: The National School (Truong Quoc Hoc) – Hue, Vietnam.

April 2018. If you’re in Hue and open to checking out something a bit different from the typical tourist trail, why not take a walk down to The National Shchool (Truong Quoc Hoc), a handsome French era secondary school that is none of the most esteemed educational establishments in Vietnam.

Travel Report: The Imperial City Royal Gardens – Hue, Vietnam.

April 2018. Hue’s majestic Imperial City is a fascinating window into the rich history of Vietnam’s Nguyen Emperors. Even with only a fraction of its original glory intact, you’ll still be treated to sweeping courtyards, traditional temples, crumbling stone gates, painted halls and towering pagodas. And then you’ve got The Royal Gardens, a small but […]

Travel Report: Phong Nha Cave, Vietnam.

April 2018. We were rattling through Phong Nha-K?Bàng National Park (try saying that with a mouthful of marshmallows) in the minibus when I found myself speculating on whether Phong Nha Cave might turn out to be something of an anticlimax.

April 2018. Arguably the highlight of central Vietnam, Paradise Cave is an essential stop on any itinerary around the country! After all, this is the longest dry cave in Asia at a staggering thirty-one kilometers. The cave’s public access section covers just one of those kilometers, but fear not… it’s still a jaw–dropping experience. Seen one cave […]

There we were treated to swimming, kayaking and a delicious feast of freshly prepared local food. On the way back to Cat Ba […]

Travel Report: Halong Bay Cruise, Vietnam.

April 2018. After a few gloriously peaceful hours cruising around the beautiful Lan Ha Bay, Green Trail Travel’s day-long boat tour chugged into the much better known Halong Bay. So what’s the difference? Basically nothing! The spectacular limestone peak scenery is the same; just expect more water traffic with an increased number of speedboats, houseboats and […]

Travel Report: Cat Co Cove 3 Beach – Cat Ba Island, Vietnam.

April 2018. The trail to Cat Ba Town’s three beaches is just a ten-minute walk from the main drag. Interconnected via a gorgeous walking trail cut into the cliffs, I’d originally intended to visit all three, starting here at the modest sliver of beach known as Cat Co Cove 3. But on arrival I discovered that beaches […]
