I confess I’m a soup lover, yet another reason for Vietnam to be at the top of my list of foodie destinations since there is no shortage of options day or night.

Da Lat is a destination that’s on nearly everyone’s list and the city features unique and delicious food, but, like anywhere, the best hideaways aren’t always easy to find. These places aren’t found in foodie blogs nor in tourist magazines – their success is strictly based on word-of-mouth. They’re makeshift, worn and old, a couple don’t even have addresses, and popular among locals but otherwise not well known. After lengthy searches and comparisons they are the best I’ve found at what they serve. Mi Quang Da Lat Style As most people … [Read more...] about Three great street soups in Da Lat

Leaving the gloomy and drizzling days behind, Hanoi has re-encountered its usual summer vibrancy with purple Lagerstroemia blossoming all over the streets. Every May, many streets of Hanoi are tinged with the romantic purple Lagerstroemia, indicating that summer has come. The purple flowering tree that is better known as “the Pride of India” was planted extensively on the streets of Hanoi in the 1980s. For over twenty years now, the graceful flower has still dyed the streets purple every summer. Along with red flamboyant, the beauty of purple Lagerstroemia has starred in many poems and songs-themed students. The flowers only bloom in the summer, signaling the end of the school year and evoking the sadness of seeing off before the summer break among the teenagers.
