Larry responds to Journey to Northern Vietnam – Episode 548
Chris, Greetings from Vietnam! Chances are you’ll recall that I reached out to you from Cambodia final 12 months at round this time. I used to be in the course of an eight week bicycle tour of SE Asia. I used to be actually to listen to the podcast in your journey. I had such an excellent time touring the Mekong Delta final 12 months that I made a decision to return to Vietnam for a seven week bicycle tour this 12 months. So, I used to be happy to listen to this week’s podcast about northern Vietnam. I agree along with your visitor that you might want to skip Ha Lengthy Bay and Hanoi should you solely have one week and also you need to go to indigenous villages and likewise Hoi An/Da Bang/Hue. That mentioned, nevertheless, I might go to Hanoi and skip the Central Coast if I solely had per week. Everyone seems to be entitled to an opinion, however your visitor is improper to explain Hanoi as simply one other SE Asian metropolis. Furthermore, to match Hanoi to Phnom Penh is simply plain ignorant. There’s a purpose why the French selected to find their capital in Indochina in Hanoi, not Phnom Penh. Hanoi stays among the finest cities on the area. If you will tour the indigenous villages, you need to begin on the Museum of Ethnography in Hanoi. Other than this minor quibble, I actually loved the episode, which I listened to from Mai Chau in northwest Vietnam. Sustain the nice work. Greatest regards, Larry
