  • Ultimate Road Trip: Vietnam's Ultimate Road Trip: Vietnam's Northern Loop

    • From: activetravelasia
    • Description:
      Written by Adam Hodge 
      Anyone who has been to this country (and even some of those who haven't) will no doubt be skeptical about the words "Vietnam" and "road trip" in the same sentence. It's true: In a city like Hanoi, the traffic can make you freeze up like an opossum. But outside of the cities, where vehicles are few and far between, the scenery is unforgettable, the culture vibrant, and the road trip experience unparalleled.
      Driving the legendary Northwest Loop is the best way to get a glimpse of the rural side of a country in the throes of relentless, voracious development. In the less-visited north, you can explore the Vietnam of rice terraces, karst formations draped in verdant jungle, purple mountains, and thundering waterfalls.
      START IN HANOI

       
      Hanoi
      The Northwest Loop begins in Hanoi. If you're going to tackle this route in a car or truck, it's best to get a 4WD. Most of the route is sealed, but heavy rains can occasionally wash small rocks and debris onto the road in the mountains. And speaking of rain, since you're in the mountains all bets are off when it comes to the weather. It's true that Vietnam's dry season runs from October until April, but if you try this during "rainy" season in the summer months you can still get away with it. And remember, as you get higher up, the temperature will drop, so you may use both the A/C and the heater in the same trip.
      But be warned, the small twisty roads were drawn into the hills for the pleasure (and ease) of two-wheeled travel. The trip can be done on a 125 cc semi-automatic "motoscooter," which are incredibly easy for even non-riders to get a handle on quickly. You can rent one in Hanoi for less than $10 a day from an outfitter like Flamingo Travel, who provides helpful English-language service. Flamingo also provides guided tours for those who don't want to tackle the country alone.

      HIT THE OPEN ROAD

      After you've explored Hanoi's bustling Old Quarter (the Essence Hanoi is a great boutique hotel option) and filled up on Hanoi's legendary street food, it's time to brave the traffic on the highway from hell out of the city. This is a straight-shot, get-it-over-with drive to the first stopover. Look on the bright side: You will never again complain about traffic back home. Just under 30 miles southwest of Hanoi on Highway 6, you'll have the chance to turn left onto a skinny two-lane secondary road. Take it! This is what you've come for. The road weaves its way through rice terraces, bypassing the truck-heavy main drag. You'll meet up with H6 again soon enough, which you'll take the rest of the way to Mai Chau.
      Motorcycling Mai Chau
      Once in Mai Chau, take a day or two to explore the surrounding countryside, which is home to many of the White Tai ethnic minority. The lush, rice paddy-filled valley is a world away from the noise of Hanoi, the horns and hawker shouts replaced with gurgling irrigation rustling leaves. Here you'll find one of the best accommodation options in northern Vietnam: the terrific Mai Chau Lodge.
      When you leave Mai Chau, you will follow weaving valley roads and mountain switchbacks up H6 to Son La. The journey is not far, but you will stop so frequently to take in the view, so budget extra time. A good idea is to break up the day with pit stops in the small towns you'll find on the way, where you can refill with Vietnamese iced coffee or pho.

      CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

      After Son La, you can head directly to the big city in the north, Sapa, but you'd be wise to head to Dien Bien Phu on the QL279 turnoff instead, where you can view the site of one of the most decisive and game-changing military victories in modern history. DBP is where the French rule of Vietnam came to an ignominious end—think Custer's Last Stand in Indochina. Walk around Hill A-1, and then visit the ranks of unmarked graves in the war cemeteries. It's a grim reminder of the war-torn history of the beautiful surroundings.
      Motorcycling Northern Vietnam
      On to Sapa, the center of northern Vietnam. A former French hill station, the town overlooks a valley of waterfalls and rice paddies, and frequently finds itself in puffy white fog as clouds roll into the town center. This is great place for trekking and mountain biking. Trekking Sapa leads multi-day tours around the area, showing off the natural beauty and the culture of the local Hmong hill tribes. For a place to stay, try Thai Binh Sapa.
      Motorcycling Northern Vietnam
       
      It will take a solid day to drive back to Hanoi from Sapa, so it's wise to break up the trip into two pieces, sleeping the LaVieVuLinh ecolodge homestay near Thac Ba Lake on the way back. If you have time, though, spend an extra couple of days and head east to Ba Be National Park. This remarkable area is up for UNESCO status as a World Heritage Site, but is seldom visited because it is tough to access using public transportation. The park plays host to countless species of fauna, including bears, tigers, and the king cobra. Stay in one of the stilt-house homestays in Pac Ngoi village, which cozies up to the shores of Ba Be Lake, the freshwater centerpiece of the park.

       

      ACTIVETRAVEL ASIA would like recommend Motorcycling West to East Northern Vietnam tour.This motorcycling trip reveals a different route to get from Son La to Thac Ba. It offers adventurous riders stunning scenery and great tribal culture exploration. The route is not yet popular thus you do not share the roads with other tourist but mainly share the roads with the locals who are on their Honda to the farm. The perfect itinerary and the support crew ensure you get the most out of the trip in terms of comfort, enjoyment and adventure.
      Highlights: 
       
      •     Stunning scenery
      •     Challenging roads
      •     Thac Ba Reservoir
      •     Colorful ethnic minorities

  • When in Paris Stay in Romantic When in Paris Stay in Romantic Hotels If You Are Just Two

    • From: Shah
    • Description:

      Paris has long been known as the city of love according to almost everyone who goes there. But did you know that there are actually some hotels who cater for twosomes only? Most of these are not far from many tourist spots, and you may be able to get a discount, depending on what season it is. Let me guide you to these <a href=" www.parishotels-discount.com">paris hotels</a><br /> and here is a short list of which hotels are specific to lovers:

       

      1. Jays hotel. Not recommended if you are in Paris for the luxury hotels as well, but credited as one of the most romantic. One thing that often annoys people is they cannot get someone to speak English to them. Well, Jay’s staff is very fluent in English. Jays only has a few suites, but they are spacious and private. Rates are around 490 Euros.

       

      2. Hotel de la Tour Maubourg. This is another hotel that is noted for its romantic settings. With only 17 rooms, it is very intimate, and each room is charmingly fitted out. Hotel de la Maubourg is not really central to major attractions, but many are within walking distance. The breakfasts there have been said to be slightly overpriced, but that isn’t a problem. You can breakfast at one of the cafes that surround it. Rates are low, at 200 Euros a night.

       

      3. The third one on our tour of romantic hotels to stay in is the Hotel Ares Eiffel. This is a four-star hotel, unlike the first two, but is cheap and clean.  An Italian designer is responsible for the luxurious decorations, and, if you think you will never get near Versace of anything, the bathroom tiles are designed by him. The Hotel Ares Eiffel is noted for the comfort of its beds and for the fact; you can stroll to tourist areas from there. Rates are a surprisingly low 228 Euros per night.

       

      4. Hotel Balzac. This is a hotel where, should you really wish to go overboard to impress your beloved; you should rent the whole of the luxurious top floor and take advantage of everything there. There is a Presidential Suite and Royal Suite there. The Royal Suite has a terrace that overlooks the Famous Eiffel Tower, a stunning view. The decor is rich and appropriate for kings and queens with its marble bathrooms and velvet canopies. For all this luxury, you would think you would pay a fortune, but it starts at 380euros per night.

       

      Obviously, in a city the size of Paris, there are many other romantic hotels to choose from, but these three are very popular, and show a variety of prices. Others who have stayed there have recommended all, and they are great value if you do not want five star accommodation. Of course, if you do, there is always the Hotel West End in Paris, or Hotel Metropolitan, but these are not so romantic. <a href=" www.parishotels-discount.com">Click here</a><br />to find out more.

  • Some Best Hotels in Paris, Fra Some Best Hotels in Paris, France

    • From: suzain
    • Description:

      Unlike other major world cities, like New York City or Tokyo, Paris has many small, family-owned historic hotels in central locations that you can stay in for under 100€ per night for a double. Below are our six favorite cheap hotels in Paris, France.

      Hotel Chopin:
      Located in one of Paris hidden "passages" or glass-roofed pedestrian shopping arcades, the small, boutique Hotel Chopin is a designated Historical Monument. The 36 rooms are basic, yet comfortable, and decorated in calm yellows, sky blues, and warm melon colors. Each room contains a private bath or shower and a color TV, and are very quiet with no street noise since each room faces the pedestrian arcade. Shop outside at the arcades or stroll 10-minutes to the "Grand Magasins", the world's first large department stores, to shop-unti-you-drop. Spend an elegant evening at the Palais Garnier, the elegant 19th century Opera house, famous for its gilded gold statues and Chagall ceiling a quick 10 minute walk away, or visit the Louvre by metro (10 minutes) or on foot (20 minute walk).

      Hotel Henri IV:
      The family-run Hotel Henri IV offers rock-bottom room rates in one of Paris oldest and priciest residential neighborhoods. Located on the tip of Ile de la Cite, a small island in the Seine, and a few blocks walk to the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Latin Quarter, the Hotel Henri IV overlooks the Place Dauphine, a charming park framed by chestnut trees built in 1608 and named after Henri IV's son, the future King Louis XIII. All 15 rooms overlook the park and range in price from 47€ to 81€ depending on bathroom amenities. On a tight budget, pay 47€ for a single, with in-room sink and shared bathroom in the hallway, or spurge for a double bed with in-room bathroom, shower, and terrace for 74€.

      Mama Shelter:
      Named after the Rolling Stone's anthem, "Gimme Shelter", Mama Shelter is proof that chic and hip does not need to be expensive. Mama Shelter's owners, the family that also owns Club Med Resorts, hired the famous luxury interior designer, Philip Starck, to transform a graffitied, abandoned parking garage near Pere Lachaise cemetery into a rock-n-roll, high-tech hotel with rooms under 100€ per night. For the price of a one-star hotel in central Paris with a common bathroom, you can relax in a modern, light-filled room with high-end linens, free Wi-Fi, iMac computer that you can use to watch TV/DVDs or surf the web, a mini-fridge, and a modern bathroom with Kiel's toiletries. Pop culture touches like funky graffiti quotes in the carpet and hanging face masks of superheroes add a touch of fun to the minimalist design.

      Hungry for snack? Help yourself to the free bread and Nutella in the kitchen, or design your own pizza at the pizzeria. After a day of sightseeing, hang out in the lounge and listen to live music with a crowd of young Parisians or have a creative cocktail in the Island Bar. Take the metro to nearby Paris attractions (15 minute walk to metro), or rent a bike, scooter, or Smart Car onsite at the hotel.

      Hotel Stella:
      A budget traveler's dream, the one-star Hotel Stella has rooms starting at 45€ per night in the pricey St. Germain des Pres area where hotels on the same street cost four times as much. Located around the corner from the one of the largest parks in Paris, the Luxembourg Gardens, and housed in an 18th century building with exposed wooden beams in every room, entering the Hotel Stella is like walking back in time. Rooms are a mix of antique furniture and contain a private bathroom with shower. One room even includes an antique piano. If you are traveling as a family, book the large suite with a double and two single beds.

      Remember that at this price range "you get what you pay for" and you shouldn't expect matching linens, comfy towels, and a spotless atmosphere. What you can expect is a great location with a private bed and bath at a price cheaper than most Paris hostels.

      Hotel Magenta:
      If you are looking to stay in a hip, artsy area of Paris off the tourist track, but close to major attractions, check out the Hotel Magenta one of the best <a href="http://www.myparis.co.uk/">luxury hotel in paris</a>. The cheery purple Hotel Magenta's exterior stands out on a block of gray buildings. The central, five-line Republique station is a short walk away. From here, you'll be whisked to all tourist attractions in Paris in minutes. At night, walk to the trendy restaurants in the Marais district, or the popular clubs and bars on Rue Oberkampf. For a daytime stroll, walk a few blocks to the Canal St. Martin. Starting at 95€, the 65 rooms were remodeled in 2009 and contain modern, wood furnishings, mini-bars, laptop safes, and free Wi-Fi.

      Hotel du College de France:
      The family-owned and operated Hotel du College du France is located in the heart of the historic Latin Quarter, next to the Sorbonne, the oldest University in the world. From the hotel, you can easily walk to the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Cluny Museum of Medieval History, the chic streets of St. Germain des Pres, and the famous rue Moffetard market. The 29 rooms start at 80€ per night and contain ceiling fans for hot evenings and free Wi-Fi. Personal touches such as room service for reasonably-priced drinks 24 hours a day, early check-in and roll-away beds for children are rare in hotels in this price range.

  • Florence + Tuscany= Heaven Florence + Tuscany= Heaven

    • From: Sammie Clemmons
    • Description:

       

      Even those who have seen photos and videos of the Tuscan countryside before visiting are amazed at the sheer beauty of the region. There are bountiful natural parks, the beautiful Etruscan coastline, and inland, the gently rolling hills filled with wonderful vineyards and beautiful Tuscany farmhouses.

      The Tuscan region is a mixture of patchwork fields, beautiful farmhouses, and cypress trees. There are also snow capped peaks in the Appennines, and the forests of the Metallifere Hills. The area lends itself beautifully to bicycle touring and horseback riding, and many visitors take advantage of those while on vacation.

      Tuscany farmhouses offer amazing accommodations and the opportunity to live just like a Tuscan native, albeit in prime luxury. Most of the farmhouses that are available for holidays are outfitted with all the comforts of home; they are lavishly furnished, with outdoor furniture for relaxing in the warm evenings, and swimming pools for days filled with family fun.

      When in Tuscany, you will want to be sure to visit Florence. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, attracting visitors from all over the world. While in Florence, be sure to see the “Old Palace” (Palazzo Vecchio). It is one of the most important buildings in the city, and construction began in 1299. It housed the Priors of Art initially, then the Grand Ducal family under Cosimo de' Medici housed it before being transferred to Palazzo Pitti around 1550, during which time it was sumptuously reconstructed to serve dual roles as government seat and residence for the ruling family. Today the palace is a museum called “Monumental Quarters”. The palace overlooks Piazza della Signoria, where there are several statues, including “Perseus” by Cellini.

      Also convenient to your accommodations at the Tuscany farmhouses are some well preserved medieval villages: Montepulciano, Fiesole, and Volterra. Popular beaches in Versilia, and the historic Elba Island are steeped in history.

      No trip to Tuscany would be complete without sampling all the gastronomical indulgences the region has to offer. Apart from the numerous wineries where the bounty of the Tuscan countryside is used to create fabulous Italian wines, you will find dishes that are uniquely Tuscan: ribollita soup, wild boar, Florentine steak, fennel seed salame, and fish soup. Save room for dessert; you will definitely want to try the panforte and cantucci offered if you have a sweet tooth.

      Tuscany farmhouses are ideal for holidays in this beautiful region of Italy.

  • The Antrim Coast - Nature's Wo The Antrim Coast - Nature's Wonderland

    • From: EdSilveira
    • Description:

      I'll be the first to tell you that I am usually more impressed with man's creations than natures (whatever you consider nature to be), but I've got to admit the Antrim coast of Northern Ireland is pretty, pretty, good. I figured we would breeze along the coast without once feeling the desire to stop and walk around. I was wrong. When this place evolved it seems the only crayons in the old Crayola box were primary colors. The constant breeze was refreshing, not irritating as I had expected. I now understand why Elizabeth George placed Lynley along the cliffs of England (said to be very similar) after the death of his wife. This is the place to go when you want to be alone with yourself.

      Wednesday - September 23, 2009 - Ballycastle, Northern Ireland

      Ballycastle is a small village on the northeast coast of Ireland. It is in county Antrim, one of six that remains part of the British Empire. The official currency is the British Pound sterling, making our Euros worthless (and to complicate matters even more, some Northern Ireland banks issue banknotes that are not accepted in England). We picked some up (we know not what variety) at the ATM in Belfast airport. Measurements are in feet and miles, and pints and quarts (mind your p's and q's) like at home. Now if they only drove on the right side of the road.

      Our bartered apartment overlooks the coast and is fabulous. It is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. We feel like we are house-sitting for really good friends who have gone on holiday. Mary and Paul (the owners) have left brochures on local attractions with annotated maps and suggestions for touring and dining. They thoughtfully left an unopened bottle of Bushmill's and we are pretty sure it would be an affront if we did not at least sample some. And get this, there is an English version of the same (expletive deleted) combination washer/dryer that has caused us such consternation at the previous two swaps. Right on the counter is the Rosetta-stone owners manual which we hope will answer the operational questions that have been queuing up for a couple of years (more about that later).

      Showered, shaved and feeling great, we were soon on our merry way. Driving during the daylight takes a lot of the mystery out of it. Even without speed limit signs, roadways dictate acceptable progress. Having the roadside vegetation brush against the car as you are tooling along takes some getting used to, but apparently does no harm to the car's finish. We followed the coast road west (we don't need no stinking map), and couldn't keep ourselves from pulling over at the first scenic overlook. Before us were the ruins of the Dunseverick castle, set on an imposing cliff. I was starting to get into this. Instead of just seeing a pile of rocks, I started imagining the castle and it's occupants, and what must have been a desolate way of life, given this was built long before motorized transportation. I couldn't imagine a lot of traffic streaming by.

      Up the road a wee bit is an area called "The Giant's Causeway" and our next stop. Legend has it that a land bridge was built across the Irish Sea by a giant (Finn McCool - great name) who had a tiff with a Scottish giant and was spoiling for a fight. The Scottish giant was a fraidy-cat and tore up the bridge. What's left is a volcanic plateau with cool, hexagonal, basalt columns that you can walk and climb on. It's an adult playground. The car park is at the top of the cliff and you carefully make your way down a series of steep paths and steps. There are no railings so you have to be on your best behavior.

      At one particularly hazardous little cliff edge, we were approached by a group of people wearing identical parkas. Turns out they were from the Health and Safety division of the National Trust (like our National Park Service but with better uniforms). They sought visitor opinions about the safety of the park and were particularly interested when they found we were from the US (I'm not going to say Americans anymore because it seems to peeve the thin skinned, inferiority complexed Canadians). We all agreed they should leave it as is, and not build safety fences and barriers across the top of the cliffs. We didn't think the Irish should turn into a fraidy-cat Scottish giant. I think they liked that answer, and I know I liked the head honcho when he told me that I should light up and enjoy my cigar while visiting their park. (I made that part up about the giant, but not the cigar.)

      Two miles to the south is Bushmills, the village made famous by the distillery that sits astride the Bush river. Upon opening the car doors we were greeted by the overwhelmingly pleasant smell of fermenting malted barley. The tour was informative and I learned 3 things: Irish whiskey has an "e" - scotch not, the Scots use peat to roast the barley giving it the unique flavor - Irish don't, and third I don't remember because we were hungry. Fortunately Bushmills lets tour participants eat in the company cafeteria, and it was very good, and inexpensive.

      I passed on the country pie and went for the fish and chips which were very good. I asked Joanne, our waitress, if there was malt vinegar and she looked at me like "you've got to be kidding, we produce three gazillion tons of malt barley every day." There were pitchers of it on the sideboard. Taking one look at it Rich decried that it couldn't be malt vinegar as it was clear. It was good and tasted like malt vinegar and I was satisfied that it was, however Rich had to ask Joanne if it indeed was and she (very nicely I thought) assured him it was in fact distilled malt vinegar. He remained staunchly unconvinced and this little episode clearly illustrates the maxim "For some no proof is necessary, for others no proof is possible." (Perhaps the discussion found at this page will settle the matter. Perhaps not.)

      Heading back to Ballycastle, we had three more sights to see. The first was Dunluce castle which must make Dunseverick castle green with envy. Still just a pile of stones, the stones are arranged very nicely. It's big, and the story goes that the lady of the house refused to live there anymore when the kitchen fell into the sea. I can understand that. We passed on going inside, but pictured the dickens on the outside.

      Our second stop was at White Rocks beach, and suffice to say the name is the description and you don't need to know anymore.

      Our last stop was at something called Carrick-a-Rede (translated means a terrifying, rickety old rope bridge slung between two rock outcroppings that funnel hurricane force winds, and is 95 feet above the roaring Irish sea). It is something to behold. First glimpse it doesn't look too bad, but as you approach it the willies start. What if this is the time ... Plus, once you get over to the other side and explore the Rede, the only way back is through pucker-pass. They don't allow more than 8 people on the bridge at the same time. You have got to be kidding me. Rich and Lu made it easily (and proudly). I walked behind Kat and the steps of just the two of us caused these little ripples on the "bridge." My mind flickered back to those cartoons we watched as kids, where one side lets go and the characters bounce against the cliff face then cheerfully climb up this bridge-cum-ladder on the other side. In the cartoon it's funny. The view from the other side is spectacular.(I don't know if there is a view from the middle of the bridge, so don't ask what it was like.)

      We picked up some beer, groceries and take-away fish and chips (from a shop called "Mortons" right on the waterfront). It was fabulous. Great food, conversations and sunset views ended the day in this little slice of heaven.

      Well, there was one more thing. I'd be remiss if I didn't scribe this anecdote. As we were leaving Mortons, a portly (in a nice way) young female officer exited her patrol car and came in to pick up dinner for herself and car mate. She was festooned with an equal weight of weapons and communications gear, looking like a serious SWAT team all by herself. We smiled at each other, and I remarked that she was "loaded", testing the reputed good nature of the Irish. She emitted a small laugh (confirming my suspicions) while Rich gave me a serious evil eye (and a stern talking to), apparently concerned that she would would use some of that gear she was toting - on us.

      My guess is he was still unbalanced about being wrong on the malt vinegar.
