There’s a lot to see in Hue, so it’s worth spending a full day here exploring the surroundings. Firstly, there are tons of hot springs around Hue including the My An Hot Springs and Elephant Springs. Other natural attractions include the Nhi Ho Waterfall and Tam Giang Lagoon.In the main city of Hue, you’ll find the ancient Imperial City. This is a UNESCO heritage site and was the previous imperial capital of Vietnam. From here you can check out the Thien Mu Pagoda, and the two Emperor Tombs.
Getting to Hue from Ninh Binh will take around 10 hours. If this is too long to drive for, you can stop somewhere closer to Hue instead of Ninh Binh. But if you’re taking car, you will have to do a large chunk of driving either from Sa Pa southwards, or then towards Hue.Given that you reach Hue today, it will be too late for you to do much. Nonetheless, you can wander around the walking street at night, or catch some nightime waves at Ham Rong Beach. You’ll be able to find whatever you need in Dong Ba market.
Recommended by one of my hostel mate, I too decided to join the walking tour the next day. Organized by two young enthusiasts who likes to interact with travelers and to refine their English speaking skills, the tour was both informative and fun. We finished the tour with having lunch in a nice local restaurant recommend by them. After the lunch I parted from the group to visit the Royal palace, which was not covered in the tour.
Hue was the former capital of Vietnam until 1945 and also was the seat Imperial Kings of Vietnam. The city is also linked to the history of Vietnam’s freedom struggle against the French which I came to know through the walking tour later. The main attraction there is the Citadel or the Imperial city which slightly resembles the forbidden city in China. Best way to spend the evening in Hue is by taking a stroll along the Perfume river and visit the night market nearby Truong tien bridge which itself is lit up colorfully in the night giving a spectacular view. Phạm Ngũ street considered as the backpacker hub there is also great place to hang out in the night with few bars and restaurant. Gecko pup in there is the meeting point for the free walking tour.

Danang City is developing into a venue for Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE). Large hotels, casinos and wedding halls line the coastal roads and excursion to UNESCO Sites like Hue, Mỹ Sơn and Hoi An are close by. The cool months of December is a wonderful time to visit and we certainly wouldn’t mind returning for more exploration.
Next place on the itinerary can be Hue which is the ancient capital of Vietnam and also the seat of their last Monarch. Through the city one of the cleanest and most beautiful river flows named the perfume river. Along the bank of this Perfume rivers is an ancient Pagoda (Buddhist temple) that is worth the visit.

Hue is a historical place located towards the Center of Vietnam. It was the Center of the country during the rule of the Minh Dynasty. It is also not very far away from the DMZ, which was the line dividing North and South Vietnam during the war. I took the night bus from Phong Nha and stayed at two different places in Hue. First was a beautiful resort called the beach bar. This was located half an hour away from Hue on Thuan An beach. This is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of Hue. Be sure to find people from the bus to share a cab with (it can get expensive doing so alone). Second was the Hue backpackers hostel located on Pham Ngu Lao ( This is the main backpacking district in Hue). Hue has a lot of historical places. Unfortunately a lot of these have been destroyed during the war and are under restoration. The most important out of these is the Imperial City and the tombs of former emperors. The tombs are a little far away from the city so you probably need to rent a motorbike to see them. All in all I would say, if you are short on time, this is one place you could skip.
Huế is the capital city of Thua Thien – Hue province, located in central Vietnam. Huế is well known for its historic monuments, which have earned it a place in UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. Today, little of the forbidden city remains, though reconstruction efforts are in progress to maintain it as a historic tourist attraction.

We continued our journey towards the South and this little town of Quy Nhon was a delightful stop along the way. Miles of beachfront provided hours of walking along the surf. From high atop the bell tower of the cathedral in Quy Nhon we spotted a rooftop statue of Quan Lin. Like a treasure hunt we followed the narrow streets until we found these resident nuns, who welcomed us in for over an hour; serving us tea, explaining the different statues and how to light incense, then bow. We were welcomed once again into the Vietnamese culture.

Pakse is supposedly the fourth largest city of Laos. That’s not saying much considering Vientiane is so sleepy that you barely remember it’s a capital city. It is located 670km away from Vientiane and is nestled along the Sedon River and the mighty Mekong. The town itself is quite cute, with wide roads, open spaces, and actual footpaths you can use, though most are very dusty and muddy and being Laos, there are a few holes in the ground and rogue metal railings poking out so watch your step. Pakse is the logical gateway to the South of Laos, and is primarily used as a base to see the surrounding Bolaven plateau, the Khmer temples, and most famous of all, the 4,000 islands (Si Phan Don).

On the other hand, Cat Ba Town is not commercially exploited yet. So, choose a place in the town that gives you views of the mountains around. Meanwhile, we got back to Hanoi in the same way. Hopped onto a ferry with the locals, experienced rain along the way in the bay, got to Hanoi Railway Station to catch an overnight train to Dong Hoi. This was a not-so-comfortable train journey. Yet, we managed to get to Dong Hoi, the waterfront city. We chose Dong Hoi because we registered for the Hang Va Cave expedition which in the Phong Nha National Park, 45 mins from Dong Hoi. That whole day was spent in walking around the city, exploring the Dong Hoi local market, talking to the locals, exploring cafes and randomly sitting at the waterfront. This has been our most favourite city during our Vietnam visit.
4. Ancient World Heritage Site Hoi AnHoi An, Vietnam was an important trading port from the 15th to the 19th century and has had a major harbor since the 1st century. "Ancient" is really a more apt description than "old" for the town, but it still has a feeling of being incredibly cosmopolitan and bustling. The town reflects influences from Vietnam and from all of the different cultures that have been coming together there for trade for the last couple thousand of years.There is a decidedly unreal feeling you get wandering around the streets of the Ancient city. A feeling I found to be more dream-like than Disneyland, and the people who live there seem to take pride in how beautiful and well-preserved the town is. The yellow houses and shops were really giving an artistic perspective to the town. The streets near the river were full of creative minded backpackers and travelers from around the world. Everyone there looked peaceful and happy, gazing the exquisite scenic beauty of Hoi An.A photo posted by Nitin Bothra (@indian.excursionist) onA photo posted by Nitin Bothra (@indian.excursionist) onA photo posted by Nitin Bothra (@indian.excursionist) onA photo posted by Nitin Bothra (@indian.excursionist) on5. People of VietnamAccording to me, if you want to judge a place, you have to consider two things, food and people. Some countries have really reserved people and they don't love to interact or even smile in return.But Vietnam was completely different. People were happy and had a curious mind towards tourist. Vietnamese are hard working and always give a cute smile, if you make an eye contact with them. The young Vietnam is completely influenced by the western culture and loves to party a lot, but on the other hand they never sacrifice their work for entertainment. They are, what you call the type of people who believed in, "Work while you work and Play while you play."I would recommend everyone to park their doubts about this small, yet beautiful country and just travel through every part of it. We didn't have enough time to explore Sapa, Da Lat, Nha Trang, Saigon, but I still regret about not extending the trip. But anyways, I will come again Vietnam, till thenThis blog was originally published on 'Indian Excursionist'
Read my next blog to know about how i get to Hoi an.#vietnam #solo #trip #Tet #saigon #mekongdelta
I had already booked my flight from Hanoi to DaNang. Hoi An is 30 minutes from Da Nang and is a village famous for lanterns, super-quick stitched suits and pubs. I was there for 4 more days.On the first day at Hoi An, I decided to hit the pub. The best thing about backpacking is, you meet fellow travelers every now and then. We left from our hostel to Tiger Tiger, the famous bar in Hoi An and to our luck they offered us 1 vodka bottle & a sheesah per 4 people. And yes, we were 10+ by the time reached there. It was hell of a night.
This is one of my very favorite places in the world. Yes, it is filled with tourists, but I still loved it. With art galleries, lanterns, custom made clothing shops, beaches, beautiful nature, and back roads to get lost on, I said from the first hour in that I could happily live there. I'm still thinking about it! Just have to find a job...
Hoi an is a small European town, also located in the Center of Vietnam. It has the feel of an old French town. This was another highlight of my trip. I stayed at Dk's house but I would advise doing a home stay here. There is no direct transport to Hoi An. You have to go via Danang, which is a short bus/train/motor bike ride away from Hue. Danang to Hoi An is a half hour cab ride. The motorbike is highly recommended for anyone who is comfortable riding a bike. The hai van pass is one of the most scenic roads you will come across. I would not recommend taking the bus since it does not go via the scenic route. I took the train just because I do not know how to ride a motorbike. The train route is also very scenic but the only thing is that you don't have the option to go at your own pace. The train goes until Danang. From there you need to take a cab to Hoi An. A lot of people are looking for cabs to Hoi An, so try to find people to go with. Hoi An has a lot of pagodas and heritage houses. You need to get a pass for 120000 dong to see them. Just rent a bicycle and roam the streets. Apart from that it's got a vibrant night life, great food and awesome tailors. Yes, I said tailors. You can get anything stitched/customised for cheap prices (USD100 for a suit). Just select the design, fabric, lining, buttons and they will stitch it for you in a day. There are some great places to eat. Out of all, I really loved the Bazar Cafe. Try the chicken curry there.

There’s plenty to do in Hoi An, so I would recommend three nights here. Ms Vy’s cooking course (as featured on Gordon Ramsay’s “Gordon’s Great Escape”, May 2011) is fantastic. It lasts six hours, but the time flies by as it includes a tour of the local market, starting at 8.30am.Another really good outing is the Hoi An countryside bicycle tour, which shows you another side to the town, including the beautiful Japanese Covered Bridge where the Quiet American (starring Michael Caine) was filmed.
We explored the shops, villages, and ancient Chinese and Vietnamese Temples along the Thu Bon River. From a lively vegetable market to in-vogue French bakeries and restaurants, this town is a fun place to relax for a few days. The earliest evidence of human habitation in Hoi An dates back to over 2200 years ago. From the 2nd to 10th centuries, this was the center of the Kingdom of Champa. An interesting way to look at this ancient Champa civilization is to take the inexpensive tour to My Son, passing through the countryside and up into the mountainous jungle where the ruins are located. Catch the seductive Shiva/Kali dance near the first ruin and opt for the boat trip back to Hoi An, stopping to see woodcarvers and boat builders along the way.
If I ever want to describe the word 'charming' to someone, I'll do it with a picture of Hoi An in my head. A UNESCO World Heritage Site that has preserved much of its quaintness since the 15th to 19th century when it served as a port town that absorbed every cultural influence that came its way, the Hoi An Ancient Town is a surreal little world of pale distressed yellow walls tucked around the muddy Thu Bon river. You can spend several days just soaking in the atmosphere on a bicycle, spending evenings walking by the river and nights marvelling at the fairytale beauty of the riverfront that is lit up with a million lanterns every night. And if you find the time, head out to the surrounding countryside, where the backwaters crisscross with paddy fields and tiny huts. Nothing in Hoi An is less than a picture postcard.
