Vietnam Travel Blog

Travel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Vietnam

Hello and welcome to our Vietnam travel blog. You will find all our Vietnam blog posts in this section of our website.

Maybe you found our Vietnam travel blog because you are thinking about visiting Vietnam, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to South East Asia. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Vietnam.

We have visited Vietnam many, many times over a period spanning thirty years! Mark first back-packed through Vietnam during the time when you had to nominate a maximum of six places that you would visit as part of the terms of the visa, and our most recent visit was in February 2020. In addition to our personal travels around Vietnam, we’ve also spent a lot of time working within the Vietnam travel industry, including a three-month stay in Ho Chi Minh City. As a result, we both know Vietnam very and can always find a reason to return (aside from the phở and bánh mì).

Although our work has allowed us to stay in a lot of ‘posh places’ in Vietnam, our blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.

Of all the derelict places we find, abandoned swimming pools are some of the most alluring. Urban exploration at some of the world’s forsaken swimming pools
