    Selling a motorbike in Vietnam

    Purchasing a scooter and driving it through Vietnam was a great way to explore the country, and you can find out what I thought in my previous post here. I wouldn’t have done it any other way. But now that I’ve completed my journey and sold my bike, there are definitely things I would do differently […]

    Buying a motorbike in Vietnam

    Thanks to the boys of Top Gear, motorbiking through Vietnam has become the thing to do when you’re in the country, and honestly I had a complete blast doing it! There are many reasons why Vietnam has caught such a reputation. The country is long and relatively narrow, making it very manageable to ride from the North […]

  • Motorbiking Northern Vietnam

    Motorbiking Northern Vietnam

    When it comes to Vietnam, there seems to be one astonishing loop or drive after another, but my favourite has to be the northern parts, close to the boarder with China. It’s less touristy, more peaceful and completely unspoiled. Throughout my journey up there, I only bumped into a handful of other foreigners. The Northern […]

  • Ho Chi Minh City

    Ho Chi Minh City

    Ho Chi Minh City is a frantic and chaotic city. Hands down, it also has the craziest drivers I’ve encountered in all my time driving through Vietnam. Backpacker District Most backpackers visiting the city will probably stay in the area across from September 23 Park, where there are a ton of restaurants, bars, hostels and […]

  • Binh Hung

    Binh Hung

    Again trying to skip the hoards of crowds, I decided to skip Mui Ne and visit the neighbouring city of Binh Hung instead. Binh Hung and Mui Ne are actually both located within Phan Thiet and are only about 20km away from each other. There are still a lot of local tourists that visit Binh […]

  • Ca Na

    Ca Na

    Ca Na is a small and high-walled port city. There is a small beach locals go to, but it really isn’t anything spectacular. The city is also pretty dirty, smelly and difficult to find any accommodations and food in. Coastal Drive Since I couldn’t find anywhere to sleep or eat I decided to drive on. […]

  • Phan Rang – Thap Cham

    Phan Rang

    If you’re looking to hit the beautiful coast of Vietnam, but want to go somewhere not completely flooded with tourists, Phan Rang – Thap Cham can be the place. I decided to visit this city instead of Nha Trang since all the feedback I got from other travellers didn’t really paint Nha Trang as a […]

  • Kon Tum

    Kon Tum

    Kon Tum and Buon Ma Thuot are cities located in the central highlands area in Vietnam. They’re both surprisingly large cities and a great detour drive to avoid the busy AH1 highway from Hoi An to Nha Trang.   Neither of these cities are really on the traveller’s trail and it’s easy to understand why. […]

  • Dalat

    Dalat

    Dalat is the city locals from Ho Chi Minh City go to escape the summer heat. About 300 km north of the mega city and almost 5000 feet above sea level, Dalat can be a breath of fresh air for the weekend. While it was nice to get out of the heat, and I did […]

  • Phong Nha

    Phong Nha

    Phong Nha is an interesting place. It’s completely built up as a tourist attraction, especially now that the world’s largest cave, Hang Son Doong has been discovered and open for touring. While Hang Son Doong isn’t usually on the regular traveller’s to do list, as it’s over $3000USD to get in (and that’s if you […]
