Ninh Binh

Vietnam isn’t a terribly large country, but it’s super long and going from the north to the south takes ages to do. We started in Hanoi and eventually wanted to fly out of Ho Chi Minh city (previously known as Saigon), but it’s over 30 hours on a train to go from one to the…

New Years on a Junk Boat in Halong Bay

We wanted to do something a little bit different for New Years this year, and we figured just being in Vietnam was a good start to that. Rather then dinner and drinks in the city somewhere, we decided to spent a couple nights on a junk boat floating around Ha Long Bay. I know, I…

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang (say that 3 times fast) was our first stop in Laos, and it did not disappoint. Coming from Chiang Mai, there are 3 ways to get to get there, as we spent days debating each one before deciding what one we wanted to go for. Option 1 – the slow boat. This is…

Walking with Dragons
