Europe, or Western Europe to be specific, is not a cheap destination for backpackers. While your euros go a long way in many parts of Asia or South America, they don’t have the same value in this expensive continent with higher living standard. However, you can still enjoy roaming Europe without damaging your bank account.

3 Times I Fell in Love with Myanmar

Thursday, 03 November 2016 by
[English – Tiếng Việt] These are not stories about getting lost in the exquisite temples of Yangon, boating around the charming Inle Lake, or watching the sunset over Bagan. As my friend Jasper and I rode a scooter around Myanmar for two weeks, not only did we see superb landscapes, we also had no idea that

You probably meet her at an international conference, exchange contacts with her at a social language event or stumble upon her alone in a new city. She’s friendly, well-spoken and open-minded. She may sound foreign with a hint of an unidentified accent and misuse certain words from time to time. Before you judge her mispronunciation, be aware that she speaks more than one language. She’s multilingual

[English – Tiếng Việt] Medellín is Colombia’s second largest city with a population of 2.5 million residents. It was once known as the most violent city in the world due to the massive drug cartels in the 1980s. Over the years, Medellín has revolted and became an attractive destination for many, myself included.

[English – Tiếng Việt] Campuchia nằm ngay phía bên kia biên giới Việt Nam và không đòi hỏi thị thực nhập cảnh đối với người Việt Nam. Bạn có thể bay hay đi xe đò qua, hoặc thích mạo hiểm thì cưỡi xe máy như Alvin. Alvin là người đồng sáng lập và điều hành

How did South America happen?

Friday, 14 October 2016 by
[English – Tiếng Việt] South America is the story I tell repeatedly as it was not only the longest single trip I have done thus far (5 countries in 6 months) but also with loads of unforgettable moments and life-changing experiences. I learned a new language, explored the places I never knew they existed on earth,

[Có tiếng Việt bên dưới] Galápagos islands are recognized as World Heritage Site by UNESCO, but they weren’t on my list before I arrived to Ecuador because I thought it might be out of my budget. I booked the flight only one week in advance, didn’t have any accommodation reservation (as usual) and came here with little

[English – Tiếng Việt] Ecuador offers visa exemption for most countries, including Vietnam, up to 90 days. Ecuadorean official currency is US dollar, like Panama. My visit was in late October – early November 2014. The country isn’t big but has such diverse biogeography, divided into four main regions: La Costa (the coast), La Sierra (the highlands), La

[Luôn có tiếng Việt] I’m not a fan of height. My heart speeds up and dizziness kicks in when I have to look down from an elevation. So the first time I heard about skydiving, I thought, who would be crazy enough to pay money to put her life at risk? What if the parachute

Why Vietnam?

Friday, 02 September 2016 by
[Tiếng Việt bên dưới] Helping to connect EU businesses to Vietnam for a living, I frequently get asked, “Why Vietnam?”, “What makes your country different?” or “Why not other Southeast Asian countries?”. If you ask an average person, you might hear repeatedly the same old complaints about Vietnam: traffic, pollution, bureaucracy, corruption, etc. and I wouldn’t

[Có tiếng Việt bên dưới] I went to Hong Kong for the Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations but I still got to tour the city a bit. Although not exactly amongst the cheapest destinations in Asia for backpackers, Hong Kong is relatively safe and fun. Food is delicious, transportation is convenient and people
