Hanoi – the capital and second biggest city in Vietnam, racing to make up for time lost during the war. Endless layers of history – Frenchy cathedrals, villas and boulevards; Chinese pagodas and temples; hectic and always busy Old Quarter; Modern architecture giving a way to skyscrapers. Give the way to scooters!

Ho Chi Minh City was our first destination in Vietnam. First thought when we got to the city is “how the hell should I cross this street?!?” The city is very energetic and framed with kinetic river of traffic. And oh the thousands and millions of Vietnamese Dongs – might be very confusing, but at the same time exciting.

To be honest, we were really waiting for the day we go to George Town. Kuala Lumpur was just too much about shopping malls and skyscrapers for us. We finally hit the port and it gave us cosy feeling. The movie set-like mishmash of the city’s buildings and people is impressive and attractive. Western style skyscrapers and shopping malls gleaming above British Raj-era architecture, Chinese temples, mosques, street art, street food.

So, we head up to part 2 of our journey which includes Philippines, Singapore, some more of Kuala Lumpur and Sweden.

Day 18: Flight to Manila, spending some time in the worst airport in Asia, one more flight to Dumaguette in Negros Oriental island and negotiation with taxi driver to take us to Dauin, Divers club where we are staying.

Day tip: Don’t stay in Manila if you’re travelling to Philippines. Just head up to any other island.

It has been a while since we have published an article, but we were too busy…. traveling! We just came back from our (so far) longest trip in Southeast Asia. We were exploring, eating, meeting people, taking pictures, riding motorbikes, taking flights, you name it.
