Bai tu long Bay in Vietnam


Twelve destinations in three countries and two weeks! I am a greedy tourist; I have an insatiable desire to squeeze as many places as possible in my itinerary. See! I have a practical view to reason this out. There is so much to see and experience but the number of…

Trang An landscape complex in Ninh Binh


Arrival at Ninh Binh Next stop was Hanoi. I could have taken a bus from Phong Nha to Hanoi but what about the breathtaking and almost surreal pictures of Trang An? I had to squeeze it in my itinerary. It is a world heritage site and was a reason enough…

TU Luan – Cave with an underground river


Early morning ride I really did not want to be up and ready by 7 am. Sometimes, there is an urge to not disturb the perfect harmony between my laziness and the warmth and coziness of bed, perfectly crushed by unbearable ever-persistent phone-alarm, which cannot be snoozed for more than…

Phong Nha – The largest cave is here


Bus from Hoi An After two magical and mesmerizing days in Hoi-An, next stop was the Phong Nha National Park. It is a major tourist attraction because of its thousands of unexplored labyrinth of underground caves. I took a bus from Hoi-An to Phong Nha with a stopover at Hue,…

Tryst: Three Countries and Me
