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 »

I have changed, and so will this blog.

by Dahye Jung @ Hey Dahye

Dear readers, 

I apologize for my lack of posts. My absence is due to a need for a break.

A break to reflect and gain inspiration, for the goal of creating a strategy for this platform's long-term vision. 

The girl that founded this blog seven years ago has changed through her experiences transitioning from teens to twenties, and has gained a few insights of her own. The woman she is become today is not reflected in the current state of heydahye.com. 

I want the content published online, open to the world to see, to be valuable.

Meaningful. Engaging. Provoking. 

The time you give on this website should give something back to you. 

I am happy to say that this month-long hiatus has been successful. I am inspired, and have a clear vision on the path to take moving forward. I am working on a new platform, new branding, and most importantly, a new message that makes my heart EXCITED! 

I hope you feel the excitement with me. 

I will see you in January 2018. 

xo, Dahye

Vietnam: The Ultimate 1 Month Itinerary

Vietnam: The Ultimate 1 Month Itinerary


halfthisworldaway

Vietnam is a beautiful contrast of a country, and one i fell in love with instantaneously. Despite the fact it has been almost 3 years since I last visited, Vietnam is one of those special places that stays with you long after you leave. Even now I find myself day dreaming about the sleepy little town of Hoi An and the pulsating city of Ho Chi Minh. Vietnam is a country with an itinerary for everyone. It has diverse landscapes, exotic food, challenging history and fascinating traditions make it an absolute dream to discover. From the mountaineous region of Sapa in the north, to the tranquil beaches further south it is sure to offer something for everyone. It is also home to the world's largest cave and of course, the world heritage site of Ha Long Bay. With such a harrowing history there is so much to learn about Vietnam, however this once war raveged country is now a rapidly developing nation which seamlessly entwines the traditional with the modern. In addition to it’s landscapes and history, Vietnam is also a culinary experience like no other. The food is simply delicious, Pho is to die for and the claypot dishes from the South are immense. I think I ate about 1000 summer rolls and never once got bored. And let’s not even start talking about the seafood sold on the beaches… Although I would recommend spending as long as possible in this country, a 1 month trip of Vietnam is a good amount of time to travel the country and to slowly start scratching beneath its surface.

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 »

Golden Gate Bridge Bike Hire – Blazing Saddles

by Sally @ our3kidsvtheworld

When we decided we would kick off our White Christmas tour of the USA in San Francisco I knew that I wanted to ride a bike over the Golden Gate Bridge. There are a number of companies for Golden Gate Bridge bike hire and we chose Blazing Saddles. When I started researching I couldn’t believe how easy it was going to be to organise. The only thing I couldn’t rely on was the weather and being December, there was a chance it could go either way. We hired...

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 »

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!

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.

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 »

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. Also be sure to check out our handy guide to ordering coffee in Vietnam.

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 »

Park Hyatt Saigon: The Perfect Retreat in Ho Chi Minh City - Live Like It's the Weekend

Park Hyatt Saigon: The Perfect Retreat in Ho Chi Minh City - Live Like It's the Weekend


Live Like It's the Weekend

After spending three weeks in Bali sharing rooms with friends, I was pretty excited to unwind all by myself for two nights in the Park Hyatt Saigon upon my arrival in Vietnam. Before my trip, I had heard some mixed reviews about Ho Chi Minh City in general. Some said not to spend more than a day, while others really loved it. All I knew is that I’d want a cozy place to escape the bustling city at the end of the day — and the Park Hyatt couldn’t have been a more perfect choice. The entire hotel is absolutely breathtaking and I love that it feels super luxurious without the stuffy and exclusive vibe of some other 5-star establishments. From the receptionist to the telephone operators, the staff were some of the friendliest I’ve met. Upon check-in, the personnel at the front desk personally escorted me up to my room for an introduction on everything I would need to know about the space, and the staff out front were more than happy to give directions to my cab and Uber drivers (ps- use Uber scooter!) so I always knew I was headed in the right direction. Location The hotel is about a 45 minute drive from the main airport in Saigon and located in …

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 »

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 […]

Saigon at Night

by Mike @ Saigon For 91 Days

Once the sun sets, taking the suffocating heat with it, Saigon turns on the lights and lets down its hair. Students meet to play cards at coffee shops, the bars fill up with both locals and tourists, and the city's innumerable old lady brigades claim their habitual seats on the corners. Whether we were getting drunk at hotpot joints with brand new best-friends-ever, strolling along the canal with dozens of dog-walkers, or zipping around on scooters while the city lights blaze by, some of our best Saigon memories came at night.

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 »

The 26 Safest Cities for Female Solo Travelers

The 26 Safest Cities for Female Solo Travelers

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

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. For an authentic experience consider renting an apartment (with a balcony) for a few nights and spend your days meandering the cities’ many pockets. Read more: How to Spend 48 Hours in Zurich 2.

Hotel Review – Four Points by Sheraton Agra

‘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 »

Eurgh. Really…what is it with people? I would never ever do that. If I saw someone sitting there on their own, I would not just waltz into their bubble and install myself smash bang in front of them.There is a reason, they are there alone.A few months on I realise it’s called ‘being social’ and that is what solo travellers do – it’s perfectly normal.

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 […]

Florida Everglades Open for Business After Hurricane Irma

by Solo Travel Girl @ Solo Travel Girl

My eyes watered with sadness as I drove through Everglades City on my way to Chokoloskee and spied the piles of debris sitting by the road, eyed blue tarps, and saw some closed businesses with obvious damage. These manmade hills were made of toilets, bedding, and a mish-mash of what were once personal effects and home fixtures damaged by the storm’s fury waiting to be hauled away, more than two months following the storm. It was a sad scene to absorb.

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 […]

As a responsible traveller, it is crucial for you to understand the places and the cultures that you visit for what they were in the past and how that’s impacted what they are like today. There […]

Christmas Gift Guide for Travellers: Top 20 Travel Gifts

Christmas Gift Guide for Travellers: Top 20 Travel Gifts

by Brooke Saward @ WORLD OF WANDERLUST

  1. I’m Outta Here Passport Cover Every traveller, myself included, will take any excuse to hit the road again and this passport cover is just the reminder you need that. When life gives you lemons, get outta here!    2. Paris Photo Print This print gives me so much nostalgia that it is as good as feeling like I’m back in Paris – the perfect print for any Paris lover.   3. Revolve Sunglasses Is your travel-loving friend heading on vacay? Get shady!   4. Cluse Watch One of my favourite things to do abroad is to switch off from my phone, which I usually leave behind for the day and play social media catch up in the evenings only. A watch is a great way to keep track of time, but still be present in your travels. 5. Trunk Side Table This year I’ve been spending more time at home (though that is about to drastically change) and have been adding worldly bits and pieces to my house that make me feel like an escape artist without even going anywhere! 6. Suede Boots Suede is perhaps the most impractical material for shoe-wear, but boy do these babies look […]

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

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. Bonus: the coffee is great thanks to some Aussie baristas. 120 Rivington Street, Lower East Side, New York Woops! Bakeshop (The Cuteness) Over in Williamsburg I came across this little gem of a place that I’ll admit, looked better than it […]

BonBon Residences: Our Home in Saigon

by Mike @ Saigon For 91 Days

For our 91-day trips around the world, there is no decision so critical as the apartment in which we'll be based.

Happily, we couldn't have found a better home than BonBon Residences.

Hanoi, Vietnam: Throwback Trip Report, Part III | Andy's Travel Blog


Andy's Travel Blog

I arrived late at  night to Hanoi aboard a Dragonair A330.  It was a short flight, and like I mentioned in my last post I was so exhausted that I fell asleep when I first sat in my seat and had to be lightly shaken awake by the flight attendant after we had landed.  I had pre-arranged a taxi and I strongly recommend this, as the touts are out especially late at night and, as a caucasian, I kind of stood out. I used Hilton points to book a stay at…you guessed it…the Hanoi Hilton.  No, not that one.  They incredibly have a Hilton hotel in Hanoi, but they call it the Hilton Hanoi Opera to get away from the mental image of staying in a POW camp on your stay.  The room was spacious and large, and I immediately resumed my slumber, ready for the next day. I awoke bright and early surprisingly not as jetlagged as I thought I would be and made my way up to the Executive Club before my tour guide arrived.  There is a fantastic organization in Hanoi called HanoiKids.  It is full of Vietnamese university students who are licensed as tour guides.  They don’t charge anything for a tour (just that you cover the guide’s taxi and meals during the tour) and refuse tips (I made a donation to their organization).  All they ask is you speak English with them and have conversations.  These students want to learn English badly, I love the... 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 »
