The Castle in the Sky in Ba Na Hills

I have said it before and I will say it again…Vietnam is full of natural wonders and incredible displays of humanity’s presence. What I love so much about Vietnam is that it is the kind of place where the people are kind and the landscapes are beautiful. Finding places that encapsulate both ideals is not […]

Hai Van Pass

Vietnam is full of hidden gems and stunning landscapes, but one of the places I was most excited to see was Hai Van Pass. I first heard about this place when I was watching Top Gear with my family once, and it has been on my bucket list ever since. This unbelievable place is a 21km stretch […]

Temples atop Marble Mountain

The Marble Mountains are technically a cluster of five limestone and marble mountains in Da Nang.

Into the Wild at Son Tra Mountain

Vietnam has been a whirlwind of excitement and adventure. We have only been here for eleven days, and already we are both in love with this place. We are based in Da Nang, but will be packing a bag and going to Hoi An for a weekend at the end of this month to see […]

Glistening gold in the countryside

The Sunshine State is home to national parks that are so expansive that there are multiple entry points into them. Some of these entries take sometimes up to an hour or two to get from one point to the […]
