Vietnam – Part 4 – Hanoi

Introduction Hanoi is one of my favorite cities in the world. As with the rest of Vietnam, it is young and beaming with energy, optimism and joie de vivre. While being a metropolis, it retains a small-town feel, especially in the Old Quarter. It is a beautiful city merging modern structures, tradition East Asian architecture.....

Vietnam – Part 3 – Bai Tu Long Bay

Introduction I can’t remember how and when in my childhood when I associated strange, hump hills with Vietnam. However it impregnated my brain, this iconic impression was prominently remembered as the buttes of Monument Valley. It took me decades to finally see these incredible rock formations in the Vietnamese bays. I was afraid that the.....

Vietnam – Part 2 – Ba Be National Park

Introduction We were slowly sailing by karst peaks on the Nang River. We occasionally saw someone walk through the dense forest. We passed through a dark grotto where we could hardly see our helmsman steering the boat with a long pole. After our boat was securely moored in the grotto, we walked under flying bats.....

Vietnam – Part 1 – Sapa

Introduction As we walked in the chilly air down a steep mountain path, we saw a panorama of formidable mountains with serpentine rice terraces. Our companions were Hmong women with bold earrings, checkered headwraps, richly embroidered indigo tunics, and bright purses with long shoulder straps. We chatted amiably about our families and homes in basic.....

Luang Prabang – The Jewel of Laos

We are sitting in a French restaurant in a quiet locale enjoying a three-course meal with sumptuous wine. Outside, we hear chants from a centuries-old wooden temple. On the street, local residents easily mingle with backpackers and affluent visitors speaking a panoply of languages. Nearby is one of the longest rivers in the world with.....

Angkor Wat – A Millennium of Wonder

One morning, before sunrise, we arrived in Beng Mealea, 65 kilometers (40 miles) from Siem Reap, Cambodia and in the Angkor Archaeological Park. As we walked towards large ruins without another soul around, I felt like a Spanish missionary exploring the jungles of Southeast Asia when Columbus was sailing to the New World. In our.....

Myanmar – Part 8 – Bagan

Bagan is an incredible archaeological site, in the class of the Giza Pyramids, Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu, but is not nearly as well known. In a flat plain of approximately 30 square miles (78 square kilometers) on the banks of the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River, there are over 2,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas, monuments and.....

  • Contemplating #maldivessnorkelling  where the are #whalesharks, #mantarays  and countless other underwater creatures by the #coralreefs and in the deep sea.  As this is the open sea, the snorkeler and diver have to be careful of the currents, where in a few minutes you can be far away from your boat or group.  Never go alone no matter how calm the water is or how close to the shore.

  • Lady working in one of the few sparsely stocked stores on the island village. She told him that one of her bracelets came from India and the other Medina (maybe she went to #hajj). Maldives is expensive as I bought 2 small single yogurts and a small bag of chocolate- cream filled, square wafers (not my normal diet but there were few choices and I was hungry) for $6. Dollars are accepted in Maldives but usually suffer from a non-favorable exchange rate and rounding up to even increase the high local cost. It is always better to have local currency for small purchases. #dhigurahisland #maldivesislands #maldives2019 #maldives_ig #maldivestravel #maldivestrip
