Hongdae is definitely one of them. Located next to the Hongik University, Hongdae is a hot spot for youngsters.  This Read more about Places to Stay in Hongdae Seoul[…]

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN VIETNAM - The Hungry Suitcase

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN VIETNAM - The Hungry Suitcase


The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand enjoys a 50% return rate for foreign tourists. In contrast, Vietnam only pulls back 5% of visitors.Personally, I feel that Vietnam walks all over Thailand in almost every travel category except beaches. So, why do so many people have such bad experiences and never return to Vietnam?I hope the list I have made below helps out first-time visitors. It may seem cynical and anti-Vietnamese. It’s not. I love this country; I want you to love it, too. I’d just like to alert travelers to beware of the common first-time mistakes that may sour their experience of the local people and the country overall.Do your homework, know what to expect, and this is the most rewarding country in Southeast Asia to explore.Here goes:-1-TAKE YOUR VISA SERIOUSLY, VERY SERIOUSLY INDEEDYes, it seems like common sense, but I have seen tourists turned ...

How to Order Coffee in Vietnam Like a Local

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Vietnam is a country that runs on coffee. There is a cafe on just about every block in Saigon and Hanoi and they’re packed most of the day with a mix of locals leisurely sipping away enjoying the day and others grabbing a quick fix on their way to wherever they’re headed. The cafe culture in Saigon is why it’s one of our favorite cities in the world. To see the list of our favorite Saigon cafes, check out our post on it.

Coffee is brewed differently in Vietnam. It’s sort of a mix between the French press and pourover methods and despite producing great coffee, it’s surprisingly “low tech”. You won’t see any chem-lab looking siphons or giant blown-glass drip towers. Coffee is brewed in a little metal filter called a “phin”. Grounds go in, water goes in, and coffee ... Read More »

The 5 Best Night Markets in Taipei

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Taipei is inarguably one of the top street food cities in the world. Taiwan is known as the land of snacks: they have literally invented and re-invented genre after genre of snack food over the years. From pearl tea to fried chicken, the Taiwanese are all about inventing and perfecting the ultimate snack foods. Think Chinese-influenced foods created with the ingenuity and dedication to perfection that (you would think) only the Japanese would bring. While Taipei isn’t quite as famous with local Taiwanese as Tainan for their snack culture, they’ve got it covered and will most likely be your first stop in Taiwan. The sheer volume of street food options available alone are enough but, matched with the quality and price of the food available on the streets, it’s pretty much unbeatable. The catch with Taipei street food though, is ... Read More »

5 of SAIGON’S BEST HIDDEN COCKTAIL BARS

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is a place of surprises, much of them elusive to first-time visitors with just a few days on the ground. Though a bit challenging at first, Ho Chi Minh City eventually became our favorite city in the world and a base for many of our adventures in the Southeast Asian region. It’s also a pretty great place to go out and grab a drink, whether it’s a Monday or Saturday, Saigon’s music venues, breathtaking rooftop bars, and tiny neighborhood spots are buzzing.

Unlike the more world famous, easy-to-find spots of Bangkok and Shanghai, Saigon is a city of tight neighborhoods which unveil themselves only to those intrepid enough to explore the tiniest, faintest lines on the map. Saigon doesn’t have a Times Square or Pudong. It’s a megacity comprised of small, distinct districts and alleys. Perch ... Read More »

A Little Hospitality… A Guest is a Gift from God

A throaty tenor danced across the inky night, joined moments later by a chorus of lighter voices. The empty footpath widened as I approached the Kartlis Deda statue. The disembodied voices echoed across the cool night. Lit in soft green, Mother Georgia towered above me. The nearby voices lifted in perfect harmony, swelling as the ethereal melody penetrated […]

8 of the Best Cafes in Hanoi

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

The big cities in Vietnam have a cafe culture that is virtually unknown to the rest of the world. Don’t expect a Chemex of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe with hints of blueberry and strawberry or an Aeropressed Kenyan. You might be able to locate one eventually, but not before tripping over scores of cafes serving up tumblers of coffee so dark it looks like used motor oil and smells like the most intense mocha you’ve ever had. It’s no secret that we love Vietnamese coffee and as a follow up to our very popular Saigon cafes list, we offer a list of some of our favorites in the northern capital city.

The Best Books I Read in 2017

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

You know that break I’ve been taking? It’s finally over. This year I have done what I haven’t done in five years: I’ve spent more time at home than I have abroad. Crazy, I know. At the start of the year on a trip to Tahiti, I made a promise to myself that I would take some time off exploring the world to explore other interests. As such, I’ve had a lot of time to read and this has led me to find some really positive-perspective books that I want to recommend. MILK AND HONEY BY RUPI KAUR If you haven’t already read this book then put on some clothes, get in your car and go buy it now (or just click the link – whatever is easiest). This is hands down one of the most soul-revealing books I have read. It makes you realise you’re not the only one, that someone else has been through that too. It leaves you with answers to questions you thought would forever be unanswered. It’s the kind of book you want two copies of: one to devour and ripe out the pages to put in frames around your living room and the other […]

‘A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY’: THE TWILIGHT ZONE EPISODE THAT EXPLORES OUR NEED TO TRAVEL

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

“a place around the bend where he could jump off”

Created during a time (1959-1964) when American television seemed eerily clean and domestic, The Twilight Zone challenged viewers to examine a possibility of uncertainty beyond the comforts and assumptions of contemporary life. It was my favorite thing on TV. One episode in particular always stuck with me- A Stop at Willoughby. It brings up questions. How could such a ‘successful’ man working in a New York tower and living in an upscale suburb be so miserable? Why would he dream of escaping to a sleepy village where the streets have no name and the children wear overalls and go fishing?

A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY is the story of an advertising executive named Gart. Gart feels endless pressure from his pugnacious boss and his minion-like coworkers at his New York City office during ... Read More »

The Best Advice For Your First Time Traveling Solo

The Best Advice For Your First Time Traveling Solo

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

I’ve been on so many solo adventures now that I am often quick to forget how daunting my first time traveling solo was. On my first trip, I embarked on the 30+ hour journey to Europe and made my way to Paris, Prague, Budapest and London. Since then, I’ve never thought twice about packing my bags and heading off on a trip solo. But there are so many things I know now that I wish I knew back then, like what to do when you catch the right train but in the wrong direction, or how to convince yourself you’re more adventurous than you really are. Below are my top tips to help you build the courage we both know you have to take your first solo adventure! 1. When packing: less is more The best piece of advice I was given before I set off on my first adventure solo was to pack my bags, take it all and cut it in half, then put only half back. The old saying “you can only wear one pair of jeans at a time” is remarkably true, moreover, your favourite pair of jeans is always going to be your go to. Anything […]

A Day Trip to Gozo, Malta

A Day Trip to Gozo, Malta

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

There’s no recommendation like that of a friend, so when an old school friend told me “you have got to go to Gozo” while in Malta, I took it as a challenge I was willing to accept. Like something out of a time-warped film set in Hollywood, this incredible island encapsulates everything Maltese living is about: sun, sea, and more sun!! Although I visited at the end of summer, the sun was scorching as the taxi driver translated the radio announcement to me: “the hottest day on record in a decade” he told me. Thank God, I thought to myself. So it isn’t just me… I’m not the only one melting into the abyss! We arrived at the bay area in Valletta and I almost threw myself into the shadiest seat on the boat, before the driver hit the engine and we made our way to Gozo. Arriving in Valletta The first thing to hit you in Valletta will be an overwhelming sense of wonder. Embrace it. The city is UNESCO World Heritage listed and presents one of the most awe-inspiring displays of architecture you will find anywhere in Europe. The church facades, statues and polished marble are just the beginning of this fabulous city that seems to reveal […]

LIVE LIKE A LOCAL: RENT A SHORT-TERM APARTMENT WHILE TRAVELING

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

If you want to experience the true life of a place, experience it like a local: get an apartment in a true neighborhood. Wake up to the sounds of street vendors and garbage trucks. Be recognized with a smile by your local noodle-slinger.

If a city strikes your fancy, rent an apartment for a month and stick around for awhile.

Another advantage of worldwide Internet networking is that it allows us to exchange short-term apartments without going through an agent or company. Check the New York City craigslist sublet page and you’ll find plenty of Parisians happy to exchange their Left Bank apartment for a little temporary stepping stone on the Upper West Side. Though apartment exchanges are rare in Asia, there are plenty of expats and locals alike who will be vacating their adobe and happy to have someone trustworthy in ... Read More »

New York for Pastry Lovers: The 10 Best Bakeries in NYC

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

On my recent fleeting visit to New York, I had just enough time to check out what was happening on the bakery scene in the city and sample my way around some old favourites. Below you will find my handpicked selection of the 10 best bakeries in NYC and what each of them specialises in to make over-the-counter ordering a breeze! Supermoon Bake House (The Cruffin) New on the scene and only open a few days before my arrival, the creator of the cruffin (an Aussie himself) has departed Mr Holmes Bakehouse (West Coast) and branched out on his own with Supermoon Bake House in the lower east side. Of course, the speciality is still the croissant-muffin hybrid “the cronut”, but you’ll have to arrive bang on opening time to get your hands on one. If you miss out, the croissants are really good in terms of technique and flavour, but be ready to flake the whole thing all over you.

20 Places I loved so much, I can’t wait to go back

20 Places I loved so much, I can’t wait to go back

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

Let’s just face it: it has been a while since I made an appearance on my blog! It has been a busy 12 months since I opened my first business and life certainly has a way of getting away from you when reality kicks in (or perhaps more accurately, takes over!) The real world has been fun for sure, but its time to hit the road again. I’m restless. This past week I’ve been skimming the internet for ideas on where to go next – somewhere new, exciting, challenging and out of the ordinary. And yet I keep finding myself circling back to places I loved so much that I want to go back. These are places I feel I didn’t spend enough time and places I often think back to and mentally plan a trip there. So its time to put these plans into reality with the 20 places I loved so much I want to go back (and am in the process of booking a ticket to one of them!!!) 1. Scotland From the minute I stepped out of the black cab in the city of Edinburgh I knew this was going to be a special place for me. […]

A City Guide to Edmonton, Alberta

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

My first trip of 2018 has been on my travel bucket list for as long as I can remember: the Canadian Rockies! My first stop on the trip was initially one of convenience, flying in to Edmonton as one of the two gateways to the region (the other being Calgary). But I soon realised this city is worth so much more than a stopover as it turned out to be a really fun few days! Below you will find my recommendations for the city of Edmonton, which is bursting with so many great restaurants, cafes and bars. Its the kind of city you can really kick back and enjoy yourself in, especially if you consider yourself a bit of a foodie like me. So, lets dive in!

10 THINGS I CAN’T TRAVEL WITHOUT

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Recently I’ve taken a four-month break off of travel to settle into a comfortable life in a quiet town. It’s been nice, mostly.

I do miss packing and unpacking the bags. I miss tossing away ripped up socks, giving away paperback books, and moving what’s left of my big shampoo into a small little shampoo thingy.

Some things are essential to have packed and ready to grab when I’m on the road. I will not include the obvious things like a camera, computer, passport, etc. These following are the little home run hitters that are easy to forget about, but always needed:

1. DENTAL FLOSS

I like to eat. I like to eat meat. I like eating late. My teeth are spaced fairly far apart from laughing too much. Stuff gets in there and I need to get it out. I’ve often been wandering ... Read More »

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN THAILAND

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand, with over 26 million foreign entries in 2016, can be a very touristic place to visit. By some accounts, 20% of the Thai GDP is based on tourism (worldwide nations average about 10%). Thailand is often an entry point for all of Asia, a constant revolving door of tourists on short or extended trips. We’re writing this article to help you avoid getting your hand caught in that often dangerous door.

Thailand is a country that can live up to its high expectations and reputation. It really can be paradise. On the other hand, it can be a disappointing place filled with drunken pub crawlers, tourist scams, empty promises and subpar made-for-tourists versions of local dishes. Pad thai made with instant noodles? You’ll find it all over Phuket and Koh Samui. If you venture past the tourists districts, the food ... Read More »

The 26 Safest Cities for Female Solo Travelers

Over the last five years travelling the globe solo I have had many ups and downs, good experiences, terrible experiences, and most important of all, life lessons. However if I could have known then what I knew now, there are some cities I would have avoided and others I would have visited sooner. Below is a comprehensive list of the safest cities for female solo travelers, where I have felt most comfortable and enjoyed every minute of my time in. Sure, there are many more… but these cities are a safe bet! The Best Cities for Female Solo Travelers 1. Zurich, Switzerland Switzerland as a whole is one of the safest countries to travel to solo, but Zurich is the city that captured my heart most. Just big enough to remain interesting for a few days but with a small village feel, the city is full of winding alleyways and postcard-worthy views.

New Years Resolutions Worth Sticking To

New Years Resolutions Worth Sticking To

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

  Stop apologising for being yourself and just be   Immerse yourself in new experiences   Be kind to people who are unkind to you   Patience is strength, build it up   Plan your day the night before     Be your own soul mate   Leave bad situations   Make every day an adventure   Say thank you more   Be kind to your body, its the only one you are given     Look less at others and more at yourself   Give more than you receive, karma has a way of coming back to you   Write a list of places you want to go and go there   Smile more… way more   Learn to be happy in silence     Focus on the solution, not the problem   When all else fails, eat a tub of ice cream   When it comes to friendships: quality over quantity   Stop comparing   Let people go if you’ve outgrown them     You can google literally anything, ask google more   Read more about things that interest you   Go on more small adventures… to the beach, to the shop, to the fridge   Ask for help […]

SURVIVING BORACAY ALONE

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

In March of 2012, I was nearly finished with a 3-week journey moving west through the Visayas region of The Philippines. Visayas is famous for beach and diving destinations. I have never been very interested in beaches, so I was focused on the cities of Cebu, Dumaguete, Bacolod, Iloilo and Kalibo. I did, however, have a beach destination as my final stop before flying out of the country. That beach was the most famous beach in all of The Philippines- Boracay. I was all by my sad self during these weeks in the Philippines. I’d met people here and there along the way, but I didn’t join a backpacker caravan or fall in love. So, how is it traveling to Boracay alone, anyway?

Often beach destinations entice travelers of impossibly clear turquoise waters bookended by eternal sunrises and sunsets. So often, ... Read More »

SIEM REAP’S 10 BEST BARS: CLASSY, HIDDEN DIVES JUST OUTSIDE OF ANGKOR

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Every year I find myself in Siem Reap, Cambodia for a week. It’s inevitable, and always enjoyable.

Angkor Wat is, along with Bagan in Myanmar, one of the two most spectacular temple sites in Asia, if not the world. I’ve come back again and again with friends, or by myself. Although lately I barely spend time in the temples of Angkor Wat, I love the cafe and bar scene of nearby Siem Reap, a charming little French colonial town adjacent to Angkor that now serves as the tourist-amenity center of the region. Though a tourist town, it’s far from a tourist trap. There is something about the clear blue sky, slow clouds and that long twilight that I love here. And, there’s the drinks.

Pub Street is famous here. It is the center of Siem Reap and the fulcrum of activity in ... Read More »
