The next country on my year-long trip is Vietnam. I have to choose whether to take a long bus ride from Laos (which doesn’t sound too pleasant from reading other people’s experiences) or hopping on a plane which would be much more convenient and apparently is still a great way to travel over as you’ll get to see all the rice paddies from the air! I guess I have some time to consider this.
I’ll start from Hanoi and its surroundings in the North and then down to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) formerly Saigon.
Here are the places I really want to visit:
Ha Long Bay
Cat Ba Island
I’m also really thinking that I need to learn how to ride a bike before next year! Yes, yes, it’s bad I know but it’s something I never quite got the hang of. Maybe the bikes have stabilisers?
