Why should you come to Vietnam? Entering Vietnam easier with Vietnam Visa

Actually there is no reason for why not. Coming to a new place means to explore another part of the world, to learn something new and to experience things that you would not find back home. Vietnam has stolen many people’s hearts because of its nature’s charm, its exotic history, its excellent cuisine and even its madness. It is easy to dislike this country but it is even easier to fall in love with this land.

The long old history


Maybe the American and the French Wars would come up when people talk about Vietnam. The tragedy that the wars caused might have branded in many people’s minds but the victory has marked an unforgettable memory for not only Vietnamese people but also for the world war history. Being in Vietnam, you are able to learn more about what happened in the past and how much the wars have changed this country.

Worth to visit: Dien Bien Phu, Cu Chi Tunnels, Hue

Vietnam’s magnificent nature will steal your heart


Not many people know that Vietnam has an unique gift from the mother of nature. It is endless to list out how many mountains Vietnam has or how insane caves are in Vietnam. The ocean shapes along the S of Vietnam which brings so much resources for this country. In every region, every part of the country, there is always something for you to explore. Vietnam has a total of 8 world heritage sites in which 2 of them belong to Ha Long Bay and Phong Nha Cave. However, the new found Son Doong cave is currently blowing people’s minds and has become one of the hottest destinations in Vietnam.

What should be in your bucket list? – Ha Long Bay, Sapa, Phong Nha Cave, Hai Van Pass, Phu Quoc Island

The diversity of people and tribes is the spice of life in Vietnam

If you think everyone in Vietnam is the same, you might think again. There are over 27 tribes which make every single person in Vietnam different already. You can recognise the difference between people in Hanoi and Saigon or people from the far north and the rest of the country. Each part of Vietnam has shaped a different character in each person living here. After living in Vietnam for several years and being a Vietnamese born, I have seen this diversity in characters, personalities and appearances of each person in different part of this country. They somehow bring colours to the knowledge of human learning.

You should go to: Sapa, Bac Ha, Kon Tum

Vietnamese cuisine is exquisite and mouth-watering


Talking about food, most foreigners know Vietnamese cuisine by Pho (traditional noodle soup). A bowl of goodness with clear stock, rice noodles and thin slices of meat (either beef or chicken) is something you would like to try first thing when you come to Vietnam. However, it is just one dish that you know of because Vietnam offers so much more. Where should I start? There are more than 10 different kinds of noodles and each kind offers estimate over 20 kinds of dishes. That I have said about hundreds of dishes which do not relate to noodles. Home cooking dishes in Vietnam are also something that you would like to try because of its authentic taste and its cultural experience.

Can’t leave Vietnam without eating: Bun Cha, Pho bo (ga), Bun Nem, Cao Lau, Banh Xeo, Bun Bo Hue, Bo La Lot

Vietnam is like nowhere else and things that you can only find in Vietnam

  1. The madness of traffic
    Every country has something unique but something in Vietnam you are not able anywhere else. One fact that the traffic in Asia is madness but in Vietnam, it is extreme. For the first time crossing the road, you pray to god that you survive by the time you get to the other side. It might sound exaggerating but crossing roads in Vietnam can be listed to the scariest thing to do. However, don’t be too scared because it could turn into fun. It might look like vehicles going towards you but actually they always manage to drive around you. Therefore, it is said that you better close your eyes and cross. It might be safer.
  2. Street barbers – dare you find it elsewhere
    People ask me to find something that so special, so unique in Vietnam. After listing out several points, it came down to one specific job that nowhere offers – Street Barber. Walking in every city in Vietnam, you will find a private business opened in some corners where a man has his tools set up for barbering. You can get an affordable haircut but no guarantee, unfortunately, depends on your luck.
  3. Morning exercises
    I love the fact that this activity has become a distinctive culture of Vietnam. Most of the time, you see it most often in Hanoi. People wake up early in the morning, no matters hot or cold, rainy or sunny, people still go to the Hoan Kien Lake to do exercises. Some dance, some run, some stretch…

No difficulty to enter Vietnam by Visa on Arrival with Vietnam Visa

Vietnam has changed some regulations upon visitor allowance. Some European passport holders such as German, English, Italian, etc. and people from South East Asia do not need to apply for a visa but get a visa on arrival. To check the full list of who needs to apply for a visa HERE.

Vietnamese Embassy is not available everywhere in your area so that it makes applying for a visa way somehow inconvenient. With Vietnam Visa, it is fast and no hassles is applied. However, keep it in mind that, “while visa on arrival is more convenient and less time-consuming, it is applicable for those who travel to Vietnam by AIR only“.

Vietnam: Son Tay – An older and quieter version of Hanoi, featuring Thao Vien Resort

Being in the city for a long time, Hanoi gave me nerve. For those who have lived in Hanoi, you know what it is like to be in this city – pollution, traffic, noise… It exhausts me every now and then (actually most of the time). Surprisingly, just about 40km north west of Hanoi, Son Tay is a small town right next to Hanoi but it would give you a different atmosphere. Something old, something new, something very familiar but somehow so different.

An hour away from Hanoi, I arrived in Son Tay and breathed the new air. How crazy it could be when this town is so close to the city but it showed me such a big change. People still speak with the Hanoian accent, around town looks very much similar to Hanoi but a bit older, but there is no noise, there is no honking, and the air seems fresher and clearer.


First checked in in Thao Vien Resort, a change already hit me. The scenery is set up in a traditional Vietnamese way with a touch of the countryside’s vibe. Palm trees grow everywhere, thatching huts are placed along the resort and some are on the water which look very dreamy, and staff dresses in the traditional way. The heat of the summer day following the warm breeze zigzagging through a row of weeping willows started to hit me. I sat down on the bench and looked out to the pond. Cricket was chirping which completed the picture of one of those summer days. I finally escaped from the noise of traffic and the city’s life to be out here cuddling myself up in quietness.

I came to Son Tay without knowing anything but maybe it was a good thing. That late afternoon, I took a drive to the centre to visit the Ancient Citadel which people had told me to check out. A canal runs around the area which reminded me of Utrecht, where I used to live in The Netherlands. That image just caught my eyes which made me feel like Dejavu. People were having their afternoon run along the canal and some were chilling on the pavement playing chess. The Ancient Citadel seems like to be placed on an island where the area is relaxing playground for locals. It somehow still got its solemness. What is most solemn is the flagstaff standing high with the flag of Vietnam.

Son Tay does not have much to offer but somehow this place seems so peaceful. It got something so alike to Hanoi but quieter, cleaner, people are way much friendlier. I couldn’t believe that those changes could be so big even though Hanoi and Son Tay are literally next to each other. Two cities, two different images. For a day get-away from Hanoi, Son Tay could be a great place to be.


Featured post: The inspiring Yana from Travel Art, Chiangmai



About one and a half years ago, I was backpacking in South East Asia. Koh Lanta was one stop I made but luckily I chose that small non-touristy island to stay for few days because I got a chance to meet a passionate girl who was always behind the bar serving me some cocktails. Yana is an Ukrainian girl who left her hometown to be in Thailand to volunteer for 3 months but turned out 7 months staying on that beautiful island to find the definition of happiness. During the time I spent on Koh Lanta, I gotta get to know Yana and her passion for art. I still remember how impressed I got after seeing her art works. After one and a half years, I feel happy to have followed her journey and her works all this time.

So, what is the story of Yana Shvets?


In Ukraine, Yana always thought that having a job and working hard to earn good money would satisfy her. Hence, she worked in an PR company and she was proud of what she had done. However, after awhile, she realised that it did not fulfil her. Yana asked herself – “What is happiness? What is like to be fulfilled?”

After spending months to think about what makes her happy, after sipping several cups of coffee each night and letting her mind lost in thoughts, she decided to quit her job and her flat, and took an internship for 3 months in Greece. In 2014, she wanted to go somewhere warm and easy to enter with the  Ukrainian passport so there she flew to Thailand and got a volunteer job. After that, she luckily got adopted by a Thai family in Koh Lanta to work for them for awhile. During this time, she spared her time to pain more and sold her amazing works to several people. She felt happy. Those 7 months had fulfilled her and brought her back to life. They got her realised how happy she had been doing things that made her happy.

Late 2014, she decided to move to Chiangmai to take part in a volunteer project. She met up a group of digital nomads and it brought her thoughts of being one of them.
“Is it possible to earn money doing what you are passionate about?” – that’s the one question in Yana’s head.

And then, that’s how TravelArt was found.

Yana’s goal is to inspire people in wherever she stop by to paint, inspire people to take a risk and do what they really love doing but not just follow the social standards. Yana’s started several workshops based in Chiangmai, Thailand to help people learn about watercolour painting and inspire them to create art. Talking with Yana and listening to her sharing how happy she was seeing her students grow and their works getting better, I was inspired. Not much of an artist or painter but the power of her voice passionately shared with me gave me a push. She travels, she works and she inspires. Let Yana inspire you as well!

“Art will be always with me no matter what I do or where I go”

Vietnam: Good morning, Hanoi

That bit of sunlight sneaked out very early in the morning in Hanoi in those summer days. I woke up at 5am to catch the sunrise but somehow I was still the late one. The whole sky was brighten up already and many things around me had started going on. There was one thing I had wanted to witness was the activities in Hanoi in mornings. Having spent many years visiting Hanoi, lived here for awhile, but somehow I hadn’t known that much of this motherland of mine.

The street seemed quieter in that early morning. There was not much traffic on the road but it was still crazy driving a motorbike then nonetheless. I was the only one stopping at the traffic light but then I realised it did not make no sense of stoping anyway. However, seeing Hanoi so empty like that is quite rare. So there I went to Hoan Kiem Lake.


One thing I noticed about early mornings here was many people going out with their bicycles. Along the lake, everyone cycled their way around the lake and elsewhere. Some were probably doing that as their morning exercise. Some people sitting by the post office were wrapping newspapers to deliver on time. Old people were gathering together into different groups – some joined taichi group, some gave massage to the other, some did some stretching… Maybe this image I had seen many times on TV and on media, but it was my first time witnessing it. Actually, this has made Hanoi so colourful and fascinating.


Making a lap around the Hoan Kiem Lake, I was amazed by the variety of activities at that hour. Some looked quite strange to me such as old women rubbing their bellies, or men using trees as their kungfu training tools. Some dance groups were very active – from Aerobics to Latin dance. If you think about it, you wouldn’t find this anywhere else except in Hanoi. The image of old people doing exercises either in the park or around Hoan Kiem Lake has been the typical picture of this capital city and it has got to most people’s memory no matter they are tourists or Hanoians. Funnily, this has made a vivid culture of Hanoi. Either hot or cold, the morning exercise is one thing that people will never skip. Like on that day, even though the temperature was close to 35 degrees, sweat was running on everyone’s face, it wouldn’t be an excuse to stop skip the morning routine.

This habit is one long-time tradition of Hanoi. People who have ever lived in this capital city would miss this image when they are gone. One thing I know that the longer I linger my feet in Hanoi, the more attached I feel for my homeland. That does sound quite strange but for whom live abroad like me, we appreciate this moment which we find something so close to our root but far forgotten because of being abroad.





Vietnam: The ceramic village – Bat Trang

The sun kept shining harshly on Hanoi and the temperature did not seem to lower down. The route from Hanoi to Bat Trang was not the prettiest and the traffic on the highway could take your breathe away every second. However, that 30 minute ride brought me out of the city and took me to a village where the tradition of making ceramics has been passed on for the last 700 years and through different generations.


With its old tradition, Bat Trang has marked it name to the most famous village for making unique ceramics and their products have been supplied to all over Vietnam. The village is far from to be called touristy despite its popularity. Certainly, it is not a catchy place to come to take photos but it is fascinating to learn about. Each house has its own ceramic business – either selling ceramic products (Bat Trang Porcelain) or workshops teaching how to make ceramics or painting ceramic statues. I could not help but get very curious about making one myself. Looking at the instructor showing me how to create a simple vase, it seemed so easy. Starting with making your clay wet and try to centralise the inner point, working with your fingers and palms to make the pottery go higher and thinner. However, the second I laid my palms around the clay, I sensed its difficulty. It requires so much carefulness and gentleness. If the water is too much, it could ruin the whole thing. “The water is to make it dam not wet, to make it slippery enough to create the form of the pottery” – said the instructor.


The outcome did not turn out as pretty as I had expected it to be but I gotta learn to appreciate this handcraft industry. Even though, there are now several other ways to make potteries without making by hands but there in Bat Trang, it is the tradition that still stays alive and sure will not be forgotten any time soon.

If you come to Bat Trang, the porcelain market is not the only thing you should check out. Try to take a walk through small alleys because those are where you find the real ceramic village. People make the mixture for the clay, shape different potteries, store final products. That’s where you find what the actual procedure is. The paths are narrow but cosy. Somehow, it seemed like a maze but you will always find the way out. Sometimes you end up at some temples, or to the Red River, or to the other side of the village. No matter what, you would not mind being lost in that maze.






Vietnam: Cruising through Halong Bay | My ideal romantic trip

For most travellers, they come to Vietnam to cross one place off their bucket list – Halong Bay. That tourist attraction has got so much attention from all over the world by not only its place in UNESCO World Heritage List, but it is also just truly a treasure of the world. Its beauty is incomparable and its uniqueness is far beyond to describe. To you, it is a place you wish to come to see with your own eyes; but to me and to Vietnamese people, it is a pride to call it ours. The image of Halong Bay was just a blur through my childhood’s memory but I reckon it was a pretty beautiful memory. That memory led me back here to pay a visit once again, and one more time witness one beauty that was created by the mother of earth on the land I call home – Vietnam.


It was supposed just to be an unintentional experience with a cruise but everything stayed on that boat stupendously gave me what is called the best of its offers. Staggering on water in the middle of February was certainly not a great idea. The cold got to me harshly or it might have been my not-so-lucky day because the sun was hiding behind the clouds. However, it could not win the sacrificing of people who want to see the beauty of Halong Bay. And it stayed, stood exquisitely and shone by its own. I wondered, how all those nearly 2000 islets could stay in one place for centuries and if they chose to park themselves here or the mother of earth chose them to stand exactly where I was standing at that moment. On that deck of the boat, I was standing next to a man I briefly knew but we had something in common – we were on the same cruise and sharing the same view. May he has had a different thinking than mine but nonetheless, I wasn’t sharing that view alone.

Paloma cruise was the Halong cruise I chose to be on, a 4-star cruise that I had not expected to stay on (because I am a budget traveller) but was a good choice. Maybe those $50 cruises could also do the work but I was not a backpacker on this trip so why didn’t I go for something more luxurious and relaxing for change. I got myself checked in a beautiful cabin with a lounge and a wonderful view from my bed. Imagine waking up with a thought that I was lost in a painting but just a bit more real. Gotta say, a bit of luxury did feel really good. Also, it could have been an ideal romantic trip – a beautiful night on a boat and being surrounded by hundreds of limestones, amazing Vietnamese dishes served throughout a day, cruising through caves and islands, enjoying the sea in the middle of the bay and finding yourself sharing all that with the one you love. I certain that I will do that once again because it sounds like a dream, my dream.

Cambodia: The road to Angkor Wat


After 6 hours of pumping bus under 35 degrees without air-conditioner and the only toilet I could use was the bush later, I arrived in Siem Reap. Tuk-tuk drivers were surrounding waiting for me to say yes for their ride. It could look like a stock battle of who has the best offer. $4 for my ride and $3/night for my hostel, got my deal! I was not yet happy to have found a hostel with a good price, because it was just like what it costed. My bus ride was terrifying but my accommodation busted me into tears. Oh well, the life of a traveller, we can never ask for more. We accept what we get.


Maybe my experience in Cambodia was not the best. Everything felt dirty, dusty, hectic and humid, and it drove me crazy. I spent the afternoon out in the old town, got some food, got back to the hostel, tried to connect to the internet but sadly it did not work, mosquitos were biting me all over… I felt the urge of escaping that place so badly. But I came here to see the magnificent Angkor Wat, so that I booked a day tour to this tourist attraction. I had never been on a tour before but I made an exception. If I were not single, I would probably rent a bike or a tuk-tuk to get there. Might be cheaper? Guess so!.

I was up early for the trip but it did not even matter because they were one hour late. It would be bad to stereotype them being late because of being Asian but what else should I say. They were late! I paid $13 for that trip and did not know what I would get from it. Maybe all I got were the bus ride and a tour guide – who told everyone where the good spots were to take photos – and still had to pay $20 entrance fee . I felt like a tourist more than ever but it was kinda cool to experience that kind of tour – I might call it a photo tour. Anyhow, it was somehow helpful because he gave us all details of history of Angkor Wat. Because it was a day tour, I only got the chance to see the small ring but it was already incredibly amazing. Seeing all the details on the wall and I couldn’t believe that they were sculptured by human. It was admiring seeing that historic site in real after looking at it several time on pictures. It looked enormously huge and out of expectations. Gotta embrace human made effort because it is pretty magnificent.

Besides having Angkor Wat checked off my list, the tour was nothing to be told. But it was a good decision otherwise I wouldn’t have met Lasse, a German guy travelling alone through South East, I wouldn’t have known through him about the beautiful island Koh Lanta, and we wouldn’t have been friends from then on. In the end, we can always find the good from the bad.

Later that night, I packed my bag and took the night bus to Bangkok. Cambodia, I will give another shot next time!








Malaysia: The colour of Terengganu

How can I start telling you all about this small town? It might be small but it offers so much more than you expect. Kuala Terengganu has fascinated me by its cultural events, its beautiful island, amazing food and incredibly friendly people. A week spent there I got to learn so many things on this Eastern side of Malaysia and got to participate in several cultural activities that I would tell you worth to try. Add Kuala Terengganu on your list because you are going to experience something pretty awesome.

The beautiful Redang Island


I already heard from my Malaysian friends that the island would stunt me because of its beauty. I was very curious to see what would make me so. Well, one fact, I love the sea and it has always wowed me by it natural creation. The moment I stepped out of the boat, I saw a beautiful coast line surrounded by palm trees. The water was so clear and sparkle under the sunlight just as there were glitters floating around. That moment, I couldn’t wait to dip myself in that giant crystal bath.

Sadly, I only had a chance to stay one day on this island but I sure well spent that quality time. Later in the afternoon of that day, I was sailed to the middle of the ocean and witnessed the magical sunset. How many people would have the chance to see that massive egg yolk sunken into the sea while joltily floating in the middle of the ocean? It set the whole blue sky on fire, slowly turned into pink and then got sucked in.

Believe it or not, it was still not the highlight of my day. After dinner, it was already almost midnight. A walk along the beach was cheesy and dreamy enough to do because I wouldn’t have that opportunity often. The sound of waves meeting shore broke the quietness. The humidity kept me sweating and sweating and brought up an idea to me – Why shouldn’t I have a night swim? If you are in the exotic land, you can make that night swim possible. The water was still warm, stars were all over the sky, and I felt tiny in that big ocean.

Cultural and colourful China Town

Tiny Chinatown is the most interesting area to explore and very much photogenic. The town is flanked on both sides by colourful double story shop houses. Those houses carry the touch of culture and heritage of Terengganu. They certainly make this town have a cheerful atmosphere.

The most fascinating thing to me is the people here. They are so friendly and welcoming. Wherever I went, I saw smiles on people’s faces and they sure had no problem to try explaining you what you want to know despite of their limited English.







Just for a head up – if you are a coffee addict like me, the best coffee you can get in town is from Star Anise which is in front of the love-lock alley.

Cultural and water activities

For sure, it was such a great opportunity being there while most cultural events happening. The Squid Jigging Festival was the most popular in town during that time (May-June) and probably one of those events you should head over and take part in. If you are into exploring the culture like me, you would definitely be into this event. Why? As I mentioned in my previous post about Terengganu International Squid Jigging Festival, you will not only go out to the ocean catching squids, there are so much more.

Following the programme that Tourism Terengganu set up, I got a chance to do snorkelling in Pulau Redang. For the first time, I saw clearly the life under the water, fish all over the place joining my swim, and was that coral I was looking at? Picking clams is quite popular in The Netherlands but somehow I never went to try. However, there I was in Setiu, we did that the right way. With a group of 5 people and one fisherman, we were all taken on a boat to the middle of the river. The water there was just about lower our knees but they said that it was better to dip the whole body to the water because it made digging clams much easier. Well, and I did.




Besides those water activities, there were some in-land festivals going on at the same time – Setiu Cultural town introducing some local activities like Flying top spin and Fruit decoration; Kenyir Lake Festival dragging me to participate folk games that brought tons of fun and laughter; and the most amazing Paranakan Festival being held in the China Town, celebrating the bit of Chinese culture in this East coast of Malaysia, which wowed me by its dragon dance performance and delicious street food.




It was a lovely week living in the Malaysian culture. There were some new things to learn and I’m glad that I have discovered another part of this country. The food, the culture, the people… gave me a very pleasant stay and I would love to be back to swim in the crystal blue water of Redang island and to cook some freshly jigged squids on the boat again.






Malaysia: International Squid Jigging Festival 2015, Terengganu

First of all, I would like to thank the team of Gaya Travel Magazine and Tourism Terengganu for the opportunity to be in Terengganu and attend this cultural festival. I certainly had an amazing time and learned a lot from the journey. 



After 13 hours in the air, I arrived in Terengganu, Malaysia. The smell of the ocean already hit on my nose directly the moment I walked out of the airplane. I was welcomed with big smiles on people from the group of Gaya Travel and Tourism Terengganu. Joining that trip with me were more than a hundred bloggers and journalists and we were about to experience a full cultural week together. A whole programme was scheduled with full of interesting activities that I guarantee you might have never ever experienced. How exciting!

It was the second time that the Terengganu International Squid Jigging Festival was held. This year happened on 2nd – 7th June 2015. The date for the festival is usually not fixed because it depends on the moon.

About Squid Jigging

We experienced two days of squid jigging. The first Squid Jigging Flag-off was held  on the beautiful Redang island. In late afternoon, we were sailed to the middle of the ocean by a traditional fishing boat and guided by skilful fishermen. On that day, we all learned something, for some of us like me, that was some new information. I am Vietnamese, but I have never been on a boat to catch squids in Vietnam but then I learned it in Malaysia.

Squid_JiggingYou will be given a circle reel that is wrapped with few km of twine. The fishing line carries two jiggers and those will bring squids to us. Simply enough, you just have to throw the jiggers to the water and let the weight carry them all the way to the bottom of the ocean. The technique is to pull the string up and down continuously and wait till the squid get jigged.

It requires your patience which not many people of our group had. Our boat managed to catch one squid but we were already very satisfied. However, if you want to train your bicep, it could be a good way.



DSC_4082The sun was going down and there was no better view of the sunset from the deck of the boat. That sunset created a beautiful light that I would die for to see it every single day.

It’s not only about jigging squids

You will be spending 4 to 5 hours on a boat. To be honest, it might get a bit boring if you cannot get any squid. However, the good thing is you are not alone, you will be put on a boat with some people. Let’s spend some time jigging squids and catching some talks with people around you. For me, it was a quality time to know someone better, in my case, I learned a lot from other travel bloggers, listened to their stories and understood better their perspectives of travelling.

The second Squid Jigging day, I was put on another boat, got a chance to know more people. Sooner than I expected, we sang songs on the front deck of the boat, we talked and shared our stories and laughters.







There is more

The programme did not just stop at squid jigging. It was full of interesting and cultural activities. We all got a chance to do snorkelling on Pulau Redang Island, to see the life under the water, to chase fish… The other day, we went to the town called Setiu and joined the local picking clams and that was quite a fun experience for me too. In between, we visited Kenyir lake which is unbelievable to be the biggest man-made lake in South East Asia, and we were introduced and participated in some folk games there. Despite of being under an intensive heat, everyone still enjoyed very much all the activities on that day.

Since we were in Kuala Terengganu, we sure did not miss out a visit to this town. In one night, we were taken to the China town and attended the Peranakan festival. I was blown away by the traditional Chinese Dragon Dance, by the street food offered and the colourful street decors.


You might have not heard about Terengganu or the Squid Jigging festival but let me tell you, it is absolutely a life experience if you are in Malaysia. With Tourism Terengganu, you will not only learn about squid jigging, but you will also be taken to the most beautiful island in this country, introduced to the most amazing Malay food and you sure will learn a lot more about the culture of Peninsular state as well as Malaysia. At least, that was my experience and I can assure you that you will have a great time here as well. Maybe, we will see each other next year in Terengganu.
