AHo Chi Minh City: Recommendations for a hotel near the airport?

Hi Amy! To be honest the airport really isn't far from the city - it's a really reasonable cab ride in and out of town. However, if you do want a place near the airport, the Sai Gon's Book Hotel​ is within your price range and close to the... See More

AFunchal: What's the best neighborhood in Funchal for a first time visitor?

I'm going to second Hotel Do Carmo​ because it's outside the busy nighttime tourism of Rua de Santa Maria​ (which has the great painted doors project -- 200 in all!) and is also located between the Rua da Sé​... See More

AThailand: Southeast Asia Itinerary Ideas for 3 Weeks?

Hi Josh, I'm a big fan of going to less places but seeing more in them, so it really depends on your travel style. Chiang Mai​ is Thailand's cultural capital and has an insane amount of things to do, not just in the city itself but in the valleys... See More

ALisbon: Best coffee & cocktails in Lisbon, Portugal?

Hi Alex, I have a recommendation for cocktails, but it's based on not just having great cocktails on the menu but also having (I would argue) one of the best views in the city. Head to Memmo Alfama Hotel Lisboa​ before dusk, where you can not only... See More

AItaly: How difficult is it to travel in Italy gluten-free?

​Hi Matt, I have celiac disease and went to Italy expecting that the country would be difficult to navigate. It turns out that many Italians have celiac disease themselves -- at such high rates that they've begun mandating gluten-free options in many public places... See More

AHo Chi Minh City: Non touristy things to do in Ho Chi Minh

The single best non-touristy thing I can recommend is to take a heritage tour with Tim Doling. His website: I've met him when I was in Ho Chi Minh City​, and I've never met anyone... See More

AHo Chi Minh City: Authentic Vietnamese restaurant over looking the Saigon river?

Hi Amy! Much of the authentic restos are, as Justin said, one-stop shops -- you go and you eat what they're known for, then you disappear into the sunset ;)  For some options of great Vietnamese food with a wider variety, I'd suggest two place: 1. May... See More

AHo Chi Minh City: Local vegetarian restaurants in Ho Chi Minh?

Seconding Hum Vegetarian, Cafe & Restaurant​, and also suggesting,  Nhà Hàng Chay Mandala​, Chay Sai Gon Vegan Restaurant​, and, not recognized yet by Trippy's map: An Lac Chay (175/4 Phạm Ngũ Lãu... See More

AHo Chi Minh City: The Most Centre Located Budget Hotel In District 1

Very close to the market is Little Saigon Boutique Hotel​. It's my go-to recommendation because it is tucked away in a tiny alleyway, and around the corner from L'Usine cafe​, where you can get a coffee and breakfast overlooking... See More

ASingapore: Female solo-travel friendly countries in Asia...Thailand or Bali OK?

Hi Jen! I've travelled quite a bit in both countries, and found they were equally safe for solo female travellers. The same advice I'd give to anyone elsewhere applies here (don't leave your drink unattended, etc) but walking around I never felt unsafe. In... See More
