Halong Bay, Vietnam

Halong Bay was beautiful and tranquil... there were countless islands and grottos amoungst the limestone waters. Sorry for the long post, but pictures do speak a thousand words... so enjoy :-)

The temple of literature & a shrimp cake restaurant in Hanoi

The Temple of Literature was founded in 1070 by Emperor Ly Thanh Tong to honour those of high academic achievement. Vietnam's first university was established here 6 years later...

Inflight meals on Vietnam Airlines

Food I ate on Vietnam Airlines... flying from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi and back:
Pho-24, Vietnam

Pho 24
