Travels in Nha Trang

Backpacking around Vietnam and getting down with the locals

A pack of Craven A’s sits on the tiny table in front of us, surrounded by a group of robust, aromatic Vietnamese Coffees, which stood next to their respective iced green tea partners. We all sit pensively, sipping our coffees and staring out into the Rung Duoc Bay at the sporadic marine activity.


Vietnam: failed, Cambodia: passed

Travels in two SE Asian countries

This column will mainly focus on Vietnam. Would I ever want to work in Vietnam? Absolutely not. There is no way whatsoever anyone could convince me to work in Vietnam. Although the country has a lot of beautiful sights, many interesting tourist destinations and is relatively cheap to live and travel in, not once did I feel the urge to inquire about job opportunities or settle down there.


Good morning Vietnam

Postbox letter from JP Robinson

How the tables have turned. I don't know about Thailand but I think it is Vietnam that is an exciting place to be.
