First Time In Vietnam // Part 3 // What I learned

dragon-bridge First time in Vietnam - In front of the Dragon Bridge
The first thing I noticed about Vietnam is that the days there don't last twenty-four hours. You can wake up at seven a.m., eat breakfast, explore the market, get a massage, and shop at Bến Thành for a couple hours and only ten minutes will have passed. Maybe it's the heat (the humid heat) or maybe it's the compact living style (you ...

First Time in Vietnam // Part 1 // Ho Chi Minh for Rice Cakes

Four years ago, I never thought I'd be spending ten days in Vietnam when I was 18 and still in school, let alone on an all-expenses-paid trip with my former high school English teacher, Marjie Bowker.

All Around Asia

Carla and Stan took a meandering and adventurous custom trip through Vietnam, Myanmar,  Malaysia, and Singapore. They traveled from North to South In Vietnam , cycling through the old quarter of Hanoi, kayaking in Halong Bay, and visiting the Cu Chi tunnels in Ho Chi Minh. From there, they flew to the mystical land of Myanmar where they wandered the ancient temples of Bagan, bathed with elephants in the jungles of Kalaw, and toured the unique biosphere of Inle Lake by boat. Then it was off to sample the tastes of Malaysia with an emphasis on beach time on the UNESCO island of Langkawi. A final stop at the city-state of Singapore brought their 31-day trip to an end although it will remain an inspiration for all of us planning trips to Asia .  Hear it from Carla and Stan: " It was another amazing adventure from Wildland and we met...
