vietnam tunnel tour

I normally write about all of the awesome things I’ve seen and done while traveling and try to convince YOU to do the same someday.

But not this time. This time, I’m telling you what NOT to do when you’re in Vietnam: Do NOT book the Cu Chi tunnels tour.

When you think of Vietnam, what comes to mind?

I always pictured colorful markets, women in conical hats, and people working and living on the river. So not surprisingly, spending time in the Mekong Delta region was an absolute must-do for me – and it ended up being one of the highlights of my entire 2013 Asia trip.

It’s been a month since I left Vietnam and I haven’t blogged a shred about it yet, so I thought I’d give you a little preview of what’s to come, via my Vietnam instagram feed.

I LOVE Asia. One of the best things about it is how starkly different it is to the western world in certain regards. While many of these culture clashes invigorated me, other Asian habits annoyed me – and some just had no logic to them.

I’d like to think I give each place I visit a fair chance to show me what they’ve got. We shouldn’t be so quick to judge when we meet new people, so it’s only logical that we do the same when we visit new cities/countries.
