Omg! I'm finally done updating about my Vietnam trip! Jumping with joy now!
It took me quite awhile to do so. Hats off to all the bloggers out there! I never intend to be a blogger and i don't consider myself as one. There are so much more work to be done in order to be considered as a true blogger, i don't think i have the energy for it. I started this blog because i wanted to force myself to consolidate all my travel experiences in a more organise way, so that it can be useful for others. There were a couple of occasion previously when my friends came to me asking for advise about a country that i've been. I wasn't able to share much then because i forgotten most of it. I felt a little ashamed for not being able to help, so i decided to start recording everything down as i travel - pricing, timing, hostels etc. I truly hope my little effort will be useful for your planning and please feel free to ask me anything. :)
A lot of my friends asked me this question. I feel that every city is unique in its own way, but if i really have to choose, it will be:

TOP SAVING TIPS:
Best HOSTELS that I've stayed
Great atmosphere with friendly staffs is the most important thing for me in deciding which hostel to go for. Here are a few hostels that i would highly recommend if you have the same opinion.
Must EAT Vietnamese Food
There are plenty of delicious food in Vietnam! My top favourites are:
There are many other food that i would recommend you to try, especially when you are at Hue, Dan Nang and Hoi An, plenty of awesome local speciality. But there isn't a particular stall or restaurant that i can recommend you to, simply because I don't think it was the best you can find.
Overall, traveling Vietnam is definitely one of the highlights in my life. Biking around, admiring the beauty of nature was my favourite activity there. I definitely recommend you to go Vietnam, and if you ever do, feel free to ask me anything. :)
