Ha Giang Loop, Vietnam
A appropriate finale of my time in Vietnam, riding the Ha Giang loop in the very north of the country was nothing short of spectacular. We took our time riding over 4 days and exploring local towns and villages. We stayed in Ha Giang, Quan Ba, Dong Van and the last night we enjoyed a homestay in Yen Minh.
The Chinese boarder!
And then a month passed. October was a time of motion. Rewind to Day 1: I spent my first day walking Ho Chi Minh city taking in the energetic palpitation with wide tired eyes. After gaining my bearings in a pleasant plant-filled LA/Vietnam fusion AirBnB/cafe joint, I moved to a hostel in the heart of […]
When I received the phone call that I had been awarded the Bonderman Fellowship, I exclaimed: “oh my gosh! I could swear… holy shit!!” Months later and I still am searching for the words to describe the opportunity that has been awarded to me. This is a gift from the universe and I am deeply […]
Hue caught me by surprise. I found myself captivated by this city on the Perfume River, where historic ruins are contrasted by a hip and energized downtown. The main streets shut down to cars at night and everyone comes out to eat and drink- basically a big street party. I loved it! The Nguyen Dynasty […]
Destination: Ha Giang Activities: motorbiking, cultural exploration, mountains, scenery Days/Nights: 5/4 Ha Giang is the most beautiful province in all of Vietnam. Ok, I know this is a bold statement but hear me out. Three years ago, I traveled Vietnam for 40 days from the north (as far as Sapa) to the south (Phu Quoc […]
After the 8 days of “normal life” in an apartment in Hanoi, getting back on the road took some getting used to. The plan was to do a loop around the North of Vietnam, quite close to the border with China, there should be plenty of towns, and plenty to see. The first couple of […]
The most northern part of Vietnam is the Ha Giang province, bordering the Chinese border on the far north, a province full of limestone karst, strange-looking rock formations, valleys full of trees or rice terraces – a region full of dramatic scenery and contrast. And most importantly, a region where roads are winding down throughout […]
After Hanoi, we needed to see some green so we decided to go in the north of Vietnam just at the border of China for a 3 days road trip with a motorbike. You have to know that I never drove a bike before and Dom couldn’t drive because he didn’t have the international driving […]
Driving in Vietnam. It’s mental. It’s certainly not for beginners or the faint of heart. It’s hard to describe the utter chaos. An example will have to do. There are no lanes. I mean sure there might be some painted on the main roads, but they don’t mean anything. Everyone drives down the middle of […]
Often called the last frontier of Vietnam, Hà Giang borders China and offers some of the most spectacular landscapes I have seen in over a year of traveling around Vietnam. It offers misty, green and brown hills in the background, and dusty, bumpy roads weaving through the country side from lower valleys to high mountain passes and the paddies! So many green, lush paddies everywhere! The air is saturated with the scent of the leaves and wood burning on the mountain slopes, and it’s fresh! Coming from the traffic and pollution of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Hà Giang is like a breath of fresh, cold air.

Heading to a keynote speaker who is a magician and entrepreneur, I did not know what to expect – particularly at a library conference. However, Giang truly did open my mind! As you know librarians love a story. Giang shared the personal tale of how his parents risked their lives to escape Vietnam to start […]
