Falling in Love with HIGHLANDS COFFEE

20:36


Ever since I got to Hanoi, I got amazed by the number of cafés in the city, like there are so many cafés you won’t be able to keep the count. Well, I guess it’s great to have a lot around because it’s always refreshing to go out for a cup of coffee in an inexpensive place alone or perhaps with a ‘friend’ or friends. I have checked in in a bunch of them, mind you, I’m not really a coffee drinker, I can literally count the number of times I tried coffee in the past 15 years of my life – A stupid decision that I made and stuck to it.
I don't know why they gave me the Coffee in a paper cup

Phuket, A Dream Holiday Destination For Many

20:49


Phuket! What comes to mind? A walk along the breathtaking white sand beaches, chilling under a palm tree sipping on some cosmos feeling a little expensive, watching the sunset, island hopping, walking along the streets full of clubs, pubs and go go bars? All that and more is so true about Phuket, thats why it has since became a popular dream destination for many, even A List celebrities travel there on family vacations, The Kardashians have done it, Brangelina too, just to mention a few.

Pha That Luang and Buddha Park visit in Vientiane - Laos

09:37


Towards the end of last year, during the festive season, I got to visit Vientiane – Laos, unlike other South East Asia cities I have visited, the city is extremely quiet and laid back of course. I was really shocked arriving on a Friday evening to an awfully quiet place. Having spent some time in Bangkok and arriving that evening from Hanoi, it was a major shift. There was no traffic jam, no hawkers crowding your space shoving things in your face, the streets were wide enough - well better than Hanoi - to manoeuvre around, I even got to ride a bicycle at ease without any fear.

Laos is a landlocked country occupying the northwest of the Indochina, surrounded by Vietnam, Cambodia, China, Thailand and Burma. It is the poorest country in South East Asia and has fallen prey of the Vietnamese War and still feeling the aftermath of the war. There are still explosives planted during the America-Vietnam War that have not yet defused and thousands of Laotians are killed and severely injured by them every year. The capital city is Vientiane, the largest city in Laos located along the Mekong river banks. The city’s architect was highly influenced by the French, it can be seen from the vast mansions in the city. The streets are clean and easy to identify because of the names in each corner of the street. There is a lot you can get up to in Laos, like visiting the city’s home of the massive gilded Stupa - the Pha That Luang which is Laos National Symbol, visiting the Buddha Park which has over 200 sculptures which represent Buddhist and Hindu religion relations, museums, watching the sunset by the riverbank is also ideal, just to mention a few.

A trip from Hanoi to Vientiane by Bus

06:06


Being in South East Asia (SEA) is either you are forced to be on the move or you enjoy doing it, simple as that. First of all, it’s very cheap to move around Asia, one might say cheap is relative but I will stick to my words - it’s DAMN CHEAP.
So last month, December 2015, I travelled to Vientiane –Laos, a landlocked country occupying the northwest of the Indochina, surrounded by China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Burma. The poorest country in South East Asia and has fallen prey of the Vietnamese War and still feeling the aftermath of the war. There are still booms planted during the America-Vietnam War that have not defused yet and thousands of Laotians are killed and severely injured by them every year, thanks to America.
I had always wanted to go to Laos, but not too soon though. However if you live and work in Asia you’ll understand the phrase ‘VISA RUN’ which means going outside the country you currently reside in to fix your visa. I did a VISA run to Laos and took advantage of the ‘RUN’.
Now let’s look at the basics of getting around, From Hanoi to Vientiane.

Happy New Year - 2016

11:13


Five days into the New Year and I feel no different from last year, like nothing has really change but a new week has fallen upon us. In Hanoi, the festive season is not much cherished as compared to Botswana so is the New Year. The first day of 2015 wasn’t anything different, so my fellow blogger friend ANNA of - TRAVELLING RECORDS and I decided to take a walk along the streets of the Old Quarter, went out for Coffee at GECKO and later had dinner at an Indian Restaurant.
Whilst at GECKO Café, we fooled around with the camera and decided to make a video to wish you all a happy new year. More exciting stuff to come your way from US, stay tuned.

HAPPY NEW YEAR N.E.S.R.O BLOG FOLLOWERS, IM WISHING YOU A FRUITFUL YEAR
