Hanoi and Ha Long Bay

Hanoi and Ha Long Bay

Ha Noi Ha Noi was our last stop in Vietnam and the bus ride to get here was interesting to say the least. We had at this point done many different buses, many in Vietnam that were “sleeper.” On a sleeper bus, each person has their own sleeper pod, a seat that reclines all the way flat with a cubby for your feet and things. There is a top and bottom “floor” and 2 isles running down the bus amid…

The Saga Continues… Matt and Kyle come to visit – Part 2

The Saga Continues… Matt and Kyle come to visit – Part 2

The next chapter in Kyle and Matt’s visit had us checking out of the big city and into Thailand’s world renowned islands. We took a flight from Bangkok to Krabi, and from there, a ferry to Koh Phi Phi. Phi Phi was one of our earlier stops on our first lap of Thailand so we had a bit of experience here and knew what to expect. We wanted to find a bungalow on the beach that was a bit further…

Phong Nha Caves

Phong Nha Caves

Our next stop in Vietnam was Dong Hoi. This city was…well, boring to say the least. We arrived to our hotel at around 5AM after a VERY long bus ride. There was supposed to have 24hr reception but the place was locked up when we got there. Thankfully after some frantic knocking a man on an air mattress woke up and let us in. We weren’t able to check in at that hour (which we knew would happen) so we…

Tailor Made

Tailor Made

We finally arrived in Hoi An. A spot I had been looking forward to since we arrived in Vietnam. Why? Because it was here that I would get my custom made dresses! We headed straight to the tailor on day one. I had been given a recommendation by a girl we met in Sri Lanka for a tailor and also had the name of a tailor that was used by a girl who’s blog I follow, one was closed so…

Let’s Go Chasing Waterfalls

Let’s Go Chasing Waterfalls

Da Lat came as a refreshing change to many of our prior stops. It is a quaint little mountain town with fresh air and beautiful scenery. This also comes with quite the climate change. It was the first place in Southeast Asia that was legitimately cold (or if you’re not Athena – just cool). We stayed at Mr. Peace’s Backpackers Hostel. A place that we would recommend to anyone traveling through Da Lat. It is run by Mr. Peace, his…

Mui Ne

Mui Ne

Mui Ne was pictured as a stunning beach with giant white and red sand dunes nearby that you were able to rent quads and drive on. We arrived at our hotel, which was beautiful and checked out the beach which was… not. I am not sure where the pictures were taken that we found on google, but the water was good enough, definitely not as blue as we saw online or anywhere near the Thai beaches we had visited just…

Saigon and Our First Snafu

Saigon and Our First Snafu

*Part 2 and 3 of Matt and Kyle’s visit will be done once Rob gets his butt in gear and finishes typing them! Until then we are jumping ahead to our time in Vietnam! Enjoy!* Phu Quoc was supposed to be our first stop in Vietnam. It is a little island off of the southern coast. There is a 15 day visa exemption for Americans to go to this island. Our plan was to head from Cambodia overland to Phu…
