  • SUNRISE OVER HALONG BAY SUNRISE OVER HALONG BAY

    • From: activetravelasia
    • Description:
      Written by Jenmodelm
      We all waited and waited for the sun to rise over the giant rock mountains. It was nearly 6:30am before the sun peaked over the rocks.It was a glorious magnificent sunrise.
      Sunrise from the boat…a lovely sight.

       Breakfast was served shortly after, it was an Early start to the day. I couldn’t wait for coffee.Each got one fried egg and as much dry white toast as we wanted.

      After breakfast we had to be checked out of our rooms by 9am so the boat men could get ready for the next tour. We were stopping by the floating village. We were greeted by the sound of blasting techno dance club type music coming from somebody’s shack. It was so odd. We got in groups of four and ladies came in small wooden row boats to take us around the small village of 300 people; the biggest floating village in halong bay. They even had a little floating primary school. Most parents don’t want their children to go to the city to get more education because it costs money and they want them to stay and hell fish.
      The wooden houses floated on large ice chest sized styrofoam or big blue plastic tanks the size of a beer keg. Few people smiled or waved. I think there’s mixed feelings of tourists snapping away photos and strolling through their little village. They have to get at least one tour group a day– minimum. It’s low season here I’m Vietnam too. Our tour guide also said some local people are not so thrilled about the tourists visiting and have been doing so for the last sight years now. The people moved from the mainland to the floating villages because there is more fish available out in the open waters, they don’t have to pay taxes and they prefer the lifestyle.
      After seeing the floating village we had two and a half hours back to the mainland. While most people took refuge in the shade I relaxed on the Sundeck soaking in the suns rays and view. Even though our boat went very slow and the scenery was similar I enjoyed soaking as much of it in as I could. I was so relaxed I failed to put sunscreen on my tummy.
      A local  fishing boat in the bay
      Once back on the mainland we had a quick transfer to our ethnic travel van and an hour drive north towards the Chinese border. We would depart from another Fishing port to our next destination. A small long skinny island with essentially no tourists but ourselves.We had seafood lunch on the boat. Always so good.
      A local rows a boat in the bay. Many locals still live and work on the water in the bay.
      We were able to kayak one more time, although this time much less impressive than the first. There were no large rock formations or caves to go under.Instead it seemed we were kayaking in a big lake. It was strange to think it was still actually the ocean. We went for a quick swim and jumped off the boat being careful not to get stung by any jellyfish.
      Kayaking is a great way to get up close.
      The boat continued on for another hour and we sat on the roof of the boat watching the sun set. It was glorious. The sun was just a bright orange ball. Like a Japanese sun in Vietnam. It was really stunning.We arrived at the pier and it was nearly dark. Two tuk tuk scooters picked us up to our homestay.
      Sunset in the bay left a golden glow. A great reason to do an overnight junk boat.
      I was surprised to get my own room. Unlike the homestays in sapa where mattresses are set side by side, our tour guide said that ethnic travel paid for this family’s Home to be extended into.More of a guesthouse. They wouldn’t make any Money for three years to pay off the house,Thereafter they would make money from it. The family is retired, so they seemed happy to be doing it.
      Dinner was served at 7 and we helped to make fresh spring rolls with thin rice paper. Afterwards they were fried and ever so fresh and hot. Soo good! I also noticed that our leftover rice from lunch was being dried on the roof of the boat. They used it to make this amazing popcorn- tasting dried rice with corn. Never had anything like it.
      After one beer at dinner and a full belly I was sapped. I called bed time at 9. Took a shower and Crashed just a little before 10.

  • 9 Stunning Landscapes of Vietn 9 Stunning Landscapes of Vietnam

    • From: activetravelasia
    • Description:
      At just three percent of the land mass of the United States, what most surprised me during our time in Vietnam was the diversity of the scenery. From white sand beaches and turquoise water to black rock forests and mountains that hug the clouds, here are some of the most amazing landscapes we came across.
      With a coastline of over 2025 miles, it's no surprise that Vietnam has a ton of beautiful beaches. And when the rest stop during your bus trip looks like this, you don't have much to complain about.
      Rest stops in Vietnam are sometimes on beautiful beaches
      The biggest beach destination in Vietnam is likely the town of Nha Trang, which boasts all day boat tours and all night parties. If you're missing Miami while in SE Asia, this is the closest we found. The beach in the main town is pretty nice, but the offshore islands are where you want to head if you're looking to snorkel or dive. With perfect visibility, good quality coral, and thousands of multicolored fish flitting about, having a great day is easy, especially since the all day island-hopping tour costs approximately $6.
      Great beach for snorkeling near Nha Trang
      But Vietnam's coastline isn't all sparkling white sand and clear blue water. Our favorite coastal landscape was the sand dunes around Mui Ne, which come in both red and white varieties. Whether you jump, run, or slide, it's hard not to let the beauty of the dunes overwhelm you. Stretching for what seems like miles, the dunes are something you'd expect to find in Africa. Instead, they're here, only a few minutes away from one of the best places in the world to learn to kitesurf.
      Red sand dunes of Mui Ne
      Most countries with a coastline have beaches, but they don't all have rice terraces, especially ones that look like this.
      Rice terraces of Sapa
      The terraces in Sapa were carved over two thousand years ago by hand and are still inhabited primarily by the Black Hmong tribespeople. These mountain dwellers live off the land, planting and harvesting rice year in and year out in order to sustain their families.
      A Black Hmong man takes a break from working in the rice terraces outside of Sapa
      Tourists can explore the terraces by taking a multiday trekking tour with a Hmong guide. You'll stay in homestays run by the local villagers, get knee deep in mud, and appreciate rice way more than you ever have.
      Wide view of Sapa's rice terraces
      Further north and to the east of Sapa lies the unexplored Vietnam of the Ha Giang province. You need a permit to stay the night and a camera with lots of battery power to take all of the photos of the immense scenery that surrounds you as you drive by on your motorbike. The most beautiful part of the road, and arguably one of the most beautiful drives in the world, is the leg between Dong Van and Meo Vac. Here the road darts in and out of rock crevices and up and down mountains and valleys.
      Windy road in Northern Vietnam
      Children in traditional tribal outfits scream "hello" from above and below as they carry double their weight of sticks in bamboo baskets. Men wear high-necked black tunics and matching berets and women wrap electric pink scarves over their hair, giving the game of "I Spot" a whole new meaning.
      Rock forest in Northern Vietnam
      Perhaps the most quintessential scene of Vietnam is the floating limestone karst formations of Halong Bay. Best seen on a multi-day boat tour, these rocks rise out of the still water and emerge through the mist forming, if you look hard enough, the shape of a descending dragon. At least that's what the locals tell you, and how Halong Bay gets its name. Kayaking through some of these formations is a must, as is sitting back on your boat tour and letting the scenery and mist envelop you.

  • The Best Things to Do In Vietn The Best Things to Do In Vietnam

    • From: cosianatour
    • Description:

      Vietnam is one of favorite places in Asia. So much history, so much natural beauty, and the Vietnamese people themselves are renowned for their graciousness and good cheer.

      A hopeful current is buzzing throughout much of the country, and it's a thrill to watch the chaos and order play out their yin and yang amidst honking horns, noodle stands, crumbling colonial remnants and high-rises. Here is the list of the best things to do in Vietnam.

      #6 -- Access ethic tribal minorities at villages nestled in the lush hills near Sapa, and share a cup of tea with locals in their rustic mountain homes.

      #5 -- Hanoi city tour to the Old Quarter & enjoy Hanoi street food.

      #4 -- Take a private cooking class with a gourmet chef to learn about Vietnamese cuisine.

      #3 -- Navigate the alleyways of the ancient port town of Hoi An by bicycle, to explore the syncretic cultural influences of Southeast Asia's most important port from the 17th through 19th centuries.

      #2 -- Cruise the waterways of the Mekong Delta to glimpse the timeless rural scenes of farmers working the fertile land and fishermen with their nets. Stop in a home to see them making rice paper, one at a time, with a ladle and griddle.

      #1 -- Take a private overnight cruise through Halong Bay on a restored junk, a traditional Chinese sailboat. This bay is on anyone's short list for the greatest natural scenery in Asia. From sea kayaking into caves to visiting locals in their fishing villages on tucked-away islands, Halong Bay is a must on any trip to Vietnam.

  • 10 unique means of transport f 10 unique means of transport for tourists in Vietnam

    • From: activetravelasia
    • Description:

      Tourists are very excited to try unique means of transport, like three-wheeler, horse-drawn carriage, elephant ride or dug-out canoe services at tourism sites in Vietnam.

      1. Three-wheeler
      Tourists, transport, Quan Lan Island, Hue City, Co To Island

      The three-wheeler is a rudimentary means of transport. Visitors to Quan Lan Island in Quang Ninh Province are surprised to see each carrying 8-10 person.

      \


      2. Cyclo
      Tourists, transport, Quan Lan Island, Hue City, Co To Island

      The Cyclo (cycle rickshaw) is also a unique means of transport that has become very popular in central Hue City and at many tourism sites across the country. It’s high enough for two tourists on a sight-seeing tour.



      3. Horse-drawn carriage
      Tourists, transport, Quan Lan Island, Hue City, Co To Island

      It is a vehicle most favoured by travellers to the sea, coastal and highland areas, who like to hear the hoofs and tinkling sounds of tintinnabulum.


      4. Elephant ride
      Tourists, transport, Quan Lan Island, Hue City, Co To Island

      Tourists to the Central Highland region never miss the chance to ride tame elephants around a hamlet or cross the Serepok River.


      5. Tandem bicycle
      Tourists, transport, Quan Lan Island, Hue City, Co To Island

      Visitors to Bai Chay, Haiphong, Danang or Vung Tau feel quite relaxed to ride tandem bikes along the sandy beaches.


      6. Tramcar
      Tourists, transport, Quan Lan Island, Hue City, Co To Island

      It is a green electric vehicle often seen running in Hanoi, Ninh Binh and Danang, even on Co To Island – 80km far from the mainland where it can transport 6-8 passengers smoothly around this pearl island.


      7. Rowing kayak
      Tourists, transport, Quan Lan Island, Hue City, Co To Island

      The Kayak boat is mainly for those who like adventure tourism. It looks like a Vietnamese dug-out canoe. Visitors to to Ha Long, Haiphong and Nha Trang will have the chance to enjoy this kind of tourism service.


      8. Helicopter
      Tourists, transport, Quan Lan Island, Hue City, Co To Island

      This is a new tourism service provided at Ha Long, Sapa and Cat Ba sites for those who wish to see the whole scenery at an attitude of 300m.


      9. Cable car
      Tourists, transport, Quan Lan Island, Hue City, Co To Island

      This means of transport is now available at Vinpearland in Nha Trang, Ba Na in Danang and Yen Tu in Quang Ninh to save travel time for tourists.


      10. Dug-out canoe
      Tourists, transport, Quan Lan Island, Hue City, Co To Island

  • Five Reasons to Visit Vietnam Five Reasons to Visit Vietnam

    • From: activetravelasia
    • Description:
      Written by Ellie

       

      Having spent some time travelling in Thailand, I’m eager to visit more of south-east Asia, and visiting Vietnam is next on my list!

       

      After researching the country and jealously listening to recommendations given by other travellers, I’ve come up with a list of my top reasons why I want to travel to Vietnam.
      1. Delicious Food

      Despite the huge focus on other Asian cuisines such as Thai, Chinese and Indian food, I’ve heard great things about Vietnamese food and some of the dishes sound divine. Vietnamese food is also considered as one of the healthiest cuisines in the world which is always a plus!
      Many Vietnamese recipes include fresh ingredients such as lemongrass, ginger, lime and basil which all contribute distinct flavours to a recipe. Some dishes I’ve been recommended are Cha ca Thang Long which is fish marinated in turmeric topped with dill, Phở, a herby noodle soup served with either beef or chicken and the strange-sounding elephant ear fish, which is crispy, salted and served with herbs and vegetables. They all sound delicious and I plan on trying as many as possible on my Vietnam trip!

       


      2. Halong Bay

      No Vietnam travel experience is complete without a visit to the stunning Halong Bay, and winding round the limestone islands and visiting the ancient caves sounds like something special.
      I’ve heard the sunsets and sunrises are incredible to watch so it would be amazing to see these – I'm planning to stay overnight on one of the traditional Halong Bay junk boats so hopefully it will be easy enough to see both.

      Halong Bay
      3. Tropical Beaches

      Again, it seems that Vietnamese beaches are underrated with more focus given to the famous Thai beaches. I'd take advantage of this by spending some time on the deserted white sands before other tourists catch on...
      With white sands, towering palm trees and aqua blue waters some of the Vietnamese beaches such as this one on the tropical paradise island of Phu Quoc  below looks heavenly. Perfect for catching some rays and lounging with a cold beer...

       Tropical Vietnam Beaches
      4. Atmospheric Cities

      Vietnam is home to cities full of character and there are several that I would love to visit. Hanoi, the lively capital is full of classic Vietnamese architecture, food and things to do, such as visiting the preserved body of the former president Ho Chin Minh – something a bit different!
      Not forgetting the smaller city of Hoi An where you can wonder round the narrow streets, lounge on the city’s nearby beaches or shop in Hoi An’s world-famous Vietnamese tailors.
      Lastly Ho Chi Minh City (the largest in Vietnam) is packed with museums, shops, bars and restaurants so there is plenty to do!


       Bustling Hanoi
      5. Local People

      Finally, the people of a country can really complete your experience and I’ve only heard great things about the people of Vietnam – that they love to smile and are friendly and genuinely interested in getting to know the travellers that visit their country.
      I hope to meet them as soon as I can so I’d better get saving!

      Surrounded by the Mississippi River and large bluff tops, Wabasha has something for everyone. Whether you are the adventurous type, or are in town for a romantic weekend, this town has it all. Year-round events and local festivals help give this small community a special feature that most large communities don't even have. From the Grumpy Old Men Festival (always last weekend in Feb.) to Riverboat Days (last weekend in July), to a Grumpy Mudder (like Tough Mudder, but no electrical shock) and fall festival called SeptOberfest.

      Take a hike up the riverside bluffs, or check in with Turning Waters Bed, Breakfast & Adventure (www.turningwatersbandb.com) and take an excursion with Richie or Michael: Kayaking, Hiking, Biking, Snowshoeing, Snowkiting or Ice Fishing.

      Not up for adventure? Bringing the kids? Need a pool? Then check out the AmericInn of Wabasha's recently fully updated accomodations (www.americinn.com/Hotels/MN/Wabasha). The AmericInn has its own specialty packages available year round and 14 beautifully themed suites. 

      Wabasha's most famous attraction is the National Eagle Center, located on the Mississippi River (www.nationaleaglecenter.org). Currently, the NEC hosts five live eagles and provides guests with three daily shows per day at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. During the winter months, take an eagle viewing field trip and view eagles all around the area.
