Vietnam is a backpackers dream; seamless travel infrastructure, crazy and hedonistic cities, mountains, beaches, and the best coffee in the world.

I’ll write a full post with my travel tips for Vietnam, but for now the absolute highlights have to be;

  • Mountain motorbiking in Ha Giang Province through the endless hills that roll into China
  • Mooching and shopping in the colourful streets of Hoi An, the Little Venice of Vietnam
  • Coffee culture in Hanoi, by far a better city than Ho Chi Minh
  • Indulging in Island life on Cat Ba Island (Ha Long Bay) and Phu Quoc (southern Vietnam)
