Travel Report: Bai Xep Beach – Cham Island, Vietnam.

May 2018. There are a number of gorgeous beaches on Vietnam’s Cham Island. This tiny one, expertly hidden between the villages of Bai Huong and Bai Lang, often gets missed altogether. Firstly it’s partly concealed from the main road, where one could easily pass by without even realizing it exists. Secondly it’s usually deserted, being […]

Travel Report: Bai Huong Temple – Cham Island, Vietnam.

May 2018. There is very little to Cham Island’s lazy Bai Huong Village. A lone market street, right on the beach, is home to a handful of restaurants and there are about half a dozen homestays scattered about the leafy residential streets. The only village sight is this rambling Buddhist temple just across from the […]

Travel Report: Bai Huong Village – Cham Island, Vietnam.

May 2018. Sleepy Bai Huong Village is one of four hamlets open to receiving travellers on Vietnam’s gorgeous Cham Island (Hon Lao). I got here via speedboat from Hoi An Harbour, which made light albeit choppy work of the nine nautical miles between island and mainland. A poky ferry, packed full of locals, boxes, crates, […]

This one literally just appeared in front of me during my investigations of Hoi An’s gorgeous ancient quarter. Dating back to 1590 it […]

May 2018. This ancient Chinese assembly hall, dating back to 1690, is just one of Hoi An’s many protected, World Cultural Heritage sites located in the old town. It was originally created as a social centre for the region’s Chinese community originally from Fujian province. May 2018. The complex also became an established temple in […]

Travel Report: The Happy Heart Cafe – Danang, Vietnam.

May 2018. It was high time for my annual injection of English Breakfast, a culinary delight unavailable to me in Ruian, China. Unless that is I perhaps cook it myself with substandard ingredients from the supermarket. So I just abstain, reminding myself that the next time I’m back on the road I’ll seek out just […]
