More
I'm really hooked on Vietnam. This was my fourth visit in 3 years and I think, as long as you can avoid tourist scams, is an absolutely charming and fulfilling place for travel. I spent most of my time in Hanoi, using it as a base camp to explore a couple of places I still hadn't visited in the north. Rather than going to the Unesco World Heritage site of Halong Bay, I opted for the more quiet, less crowded Cat Ba Island. Where you're still close enough to see the beautiful karst islands and...
