AVietnam: Flights in Vietnam

AVietnam: Best places to go in Vietnam during January?

There is Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park​ which is known for limestone Karst Mountains, beautiful  rivers, and it's amazing cave systems. You may have read about the largest (and possibly third largest) caves being discovered in VN. A company Oxalis... See More

AVung Tau: What is there to do Ho May Eco Tourism Park?

There's no zip line or really much that makes it an "eco-tourism park." There is a small "zoo" with a few animals, a mountain slide, amusement park rides and some water slides. You take a cable car to the top.  I drove there but you can also take the... See More

AChina: Trip to China- best things to do in Shanghai, Beijing and HK?

Your guided tour should take you to most of the "must sees" in those cities. Though if you have a free day or half day here are some interesting areas not often on the standard programs. In Beijing check out Beijing 798 Art Zone​, an old munitions... See More

APhilippines: Where to go in the Philippines?

I went to the Philippines with plans travel to a few islands based on recommendations of a few co-workers in the outdoor rec game. They recommended El Nido​. It was just my speed and at the time (three years ago) far enough off the beaten track to still... See More

AHanoi: Best tips on visiting Hanoi?

Blue Butterfly Cooking Class offers three dishes for 35 USD and customized courses. It's smaller than KOTO and less expensive than some of the others. However, Koto is a very cool concept helps disadvantaged youths so that extra money goes to a good cause. For hotels... See More
