Iced coffee at a streetside cafe, Saigon, Vietnam

The Socialist Republic of Vietnam, that is.

Motivated by an open schedule and a temporary lack of work, I’ve decided to spend a week in Vietnam. Starting in Ho Chi Minh City, I’ll be taking the Reunification Express north, with a stop in Hoi An (and possibly Hue), before terminating in Hanoi. It’s a bit of a whirlwind trip, and having relatively little time to explore each destination, I’m relying on the generous consul of guidebooks, websites and blogs. Luckily, there’s some great eats advice out there, and I’ll be posting my pics from various meals and markets as often as I can get a decent WiFi connection.

Have you been to Hoi An before? It’s one of my most favourite places in the world, since it used to be a major shipping port in Asia and resulted in the stained-glass window that is Hoi An (such as the dog-monkey bridge).

I love your photography and food blog!

P.S. One day, you should go to Sa Pa (far north of Viet Nam) and go to the market to get some pork kebabs from one of the street vendors there, as they rivalled everything I ate in the country (It’s been years, but my eyes and mouth swell up at the memory).

Wanna say something?
