Vietnam- Places To Visit

Planning for a travel to Vietnam? Then, you must have known the procedure for passport and Vietnam visa requirements for us citizens. Never take the visa and passport procedures lightly. There are people who are turned back from Vietnam just because they do not have preapproval for the visa on arrival. So, take care of all those processes before planning for a travel to Vietnam.

Vietnam is a great place to travel. It is known for its beautiful scenery, awesome cuisines and authentic culture of the ancient Vietnamese. There are certain places which depict the real beauty of Vietnam and must not be missed.

Halong Bay: There are 1600 to 2000 islands in the Gulf of Tonkin at Halong. If you like to drench in the beauty of nature then just sail along the rocks out there. Generally, travelers like kayaking around the rocks, exploring the beautiful cave formation and enjoy watching the wildlife around there.

Hue: The city features many historical monuments like royal pagodas, temples, museums and royal tombs. This is the reason why the city has been declared as UNESCO World heritage site.

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum: Uncle Ho was a popular figure among the people of Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh is the actual name and he was a famous political figure. His body is preserved here as a note of respect.

Cu Chi tunnels: This tourist spot is located in Ho Chi Minh City. The tourists enjoy crawling inside the tunnel, firing an M16 assault rifle and have sampling meals to experience the life of soldiers who lived years ago.

Sand Dunes of Mui Ne: This is one place which must not be missed by a traveler. It is just a four-hour away from the Ho Chi Minh City. The White and red dunes here are must for the travelers to explore.

Some of the other places here are Hoi An, Sapa, Hanoi and lots more. Vietnam is not a place for a hurried traveler. So, take your own time to enjoy the originality of Vietnam

Why I left America and settled in Thailand

Years ago, I was just like you. Waking up in the morning, eating the same breakfast, going to the same job, driving the same route home and then putting the television on until I eventually fall asleep, only to wake up and do it all over again. I can’t say that this life was exciting, or even fulfilling, in any sense of the word. This routine was my life for the best part of five years until something snapped inside of me and I thought ‘surely there has to be more to life than this’, and trust me when I say that their absolutely is.

We’ve been tricked into thinking making somebody else a ton of cash is how we should live. Whatever illusion that people are under that they feel like they have to do the same old routine everyday to survive, it’s a fake one. Two years ago today I moved to thailand in search of a better life.

I gathered what little savings I had, sold my car, packed a few clothes and just left. I had no family, I hated my job and no debts to hold me prisoner. Nobody would miss me and I thought that worse case scenario, I end up back in America better for the experience. That’s not to say that I wasn’t terrified though. I had literally no idea what I was doing.

After settling into the hotel and having a look around at what the small town had to offer, I knew that eventually I would have to buy a house if I were to commit to living here for as long as I wanted. One of the best real estate businesses in Samui helped me out so much. With a team that spoke perfect English, my needs and desires were perfectly understood. Within one month of searching a looking for the best place, I settled on a beach front villa.

Now my life is full of sun, sea and sand, I still work, but teaching at a surf school hardly feels like work!
