Night Markets in Saigon

by jonny @ Vietnam Travel -

While they may not be as bright and shiny as malls or supermarkets, night markets have their own character and are popular destinations for local people and travellers alike. For many travellers the day is just too hot to spend shopping, and the cooler night air offers an ideal opportunity to grab some souvenirs, while for locals the evening is an ideal time to meet and gather outside and share a meal or a drink under the stars.

There is an enormous variety of goods on offer including clothes, footwear, hats. hair clips, jewellery, watches..etc The prices are normally cheaper than day markets or supermarkets as the sellers pay less for the rent, so there are some great bargains to be had. As well as the choice in souvenirs there's also a great range of food, with many street vendors setting up shop to take advantage of the passing trade.

Some night markets specialise in cheap goods for students and workers, and are located out of town near universities and textile factories, such as the huge Ky Hoa night market on Cao Thang in District 10, where many student live. In these markets the prices are often cheaper than in town and less bargaining is necessary; many people also come to these markets and buy wholesale to stock their shops in town.

The food in Ky Hoa is delicious and surprisingly cheap, just $1 for a bowl of noodles or a plate of broken-rice with grilled pork and fried egg, plus a glass of sugar cane juice on the side. You will find a similar atmosphere at Binh Tay / Cho Lon, Hoa Hung and Ba Chieu night markets.

Museums in Saigon

by jonny @ Vietnam Travel -

Vietnam has a fascinating 2,000 year history and there is plenty to learn about the country's past and how it affects life today. Sadly, however, while there are some excellent museums in Vietnam not all live up to the same standard - many are lengthy photo galleries with few English translations of the contexts or history behind the photos, leaving the visitor bewildered even if they have some prior knowledge of the subject.

That being said, if you choose the right museums on your trip you can learn a great deal and begin to appreciate more the rich history of this country.

The Museum of Vietnam's History
(Inside the gates of the HCMC Zoo/Botanical Gardens, Le Duan, District 1)
Possibly one of the best museums we've seen in Vietnam, the natural history museum of Ho Chi Minh City manages to chart the country's history from prehistoric times and 10,000 year old artifacts to the wars with China and the numerous dynasties that have shaped the development of the Vietnamese nation over time. There are some fantastic examples of sculpture and art from the Cham and Oc Eo civilizations, statues of Buddhas from across the region, collections of porcelain and art from various historical periods and a even a mummy found preserved in Saigon. The narratives on the walls throughout the museum also go some way to helping the visitor understand the many periods of Vietnamese history, with only a few gaps. Highly recommended.

The History of Hoi An's Ancient Town

by jonny @ Vietnam Travel -

Today, westerners know the Vietnamese city of Hoi An mostly as a tourist destination. Thanks to its proximity to the Marble Mountains and lovely China Beach, Hoi An draws many visitors each year. But at one point in its history, Hoi An was far more than a tourist destination; in fact, it was one of the most important seaports in all of Southeast Asia.

Early History of Hoi An

Hoi An was first settled by the Champa people, a Malay-Indonesian people who arrived in Vietnam from Java originally around 200 BC. In the first century AD, the Champas founded Hoi An. At that time, the city was called “Lam Ap Pho”, or Champa City.

The Champa Kingdom was a large and powerful one, and although My Son (which no longer exists except for a few ruins) was the Cham's spiritual capital, Hoi An was its commercial capital. In the first century, Hoi An was the largest harbour in Southeast Asia. From Hoi An, the Cham gradually built control over the spice trade, bringing great wealth to the city. From the seventh to the tenth centuries, Champa-dominated Hoi An ruled the trade in spices and silks, with their influence stretching as far west as Baghdad. The Cham exported aloe and ivory, and supplemented their trading income with calculated acts of piracy and caravan raids.

Vietnam Tours

by jonny @ Vietnam Travel -

Is it best to explore Vietnam on a guided tour?

Vietnam is a beautiful country with a great deal to offer the visitor. However it is also a country that can be very tiring and at times frustrating to navigate, particularly when short on time. Yet travelling independently can be extremely rewarding, so should a traveller go it alone or seek the help of professionals?

It is hard to give a general answer for all visitors as it really depends on what you wish to get from your trip. If you simply want a holiday, perhaps with a bit of culture thrown in then why not book independently - you can find a luxury resort around the beaches of Mui Ne or Hoi An that will offer a great chance to relax and unwind, with daytrips to nearby sights and attrations that can offer a glimpse of life in Vietnam, should you get bored of the beach.

If you're a budget traveller, a backpacker short on money but with plenty of time, for a real adventure we would highly recommend travelling independently. You are in the unique position of being able to explore the nooks and crannies of the country where few would normally venture, to take the time to meet local people and ask where they would go and visit if they could. Furthermore, the cheap tours available to budget travellers are normally geared towards economies of scale, with rigid itineraries, packed buses and a fairly generic feel, so little is to be gained by taking the pre-planned route.

Updated Vietnam blogs and websites

by jonny @ Vietnam Travel -

After more than a year of neglect I realised it was high time to update the listings of English language blogs and websites devoted to Vietnam - after all, some people on the list have left Vietnam and returned since I last edited it like Jon Hoff at Its The Final Word

As well as some notable publications that were missing - The Word HCMC, a guide to living in Saigon, and Viet News Online, Tuoi Tre's (the most popular VN newspaper) new English language publication - there are a whole host of great blogs that I'd not got round to adding before.

Notable additions are Hanoi Scrachpad, a great blog with excellent in depth writing covering the history and background of the subjects covered - see the recent post on for an example.

Also great are A Girl In Asia whose posts on food (and gorgeous photos) have filled a gap since other dedicated food bloggers have left Vietnam, Michael Sieburg who has also just returned to Vietnam, and Backwater Views with more food and slices of life from Saigon.

Hue's Imperial Citadel

by jonny @ Vietnam Travel -

The Tay Son Rebellion in Vietnam brought Nguyen Phuc Anh to power in 1802. Declaring himself Emperor Gia Long, he began construction on a grand fortress-palace in Hue in 1804. Today the emperor's construction is known in Hue merely as “the Citadel”, and its inner sanctum, once the home of the emperor and his family, is called “the Purple Forbidden City”. Although the Citadel and its Imperial City were badly damaged during the Vietnam War in 1968, they remain one of Vietnam's top tourist destinations.

Early History of the Citadel

Like many of Asia's leaders of the past, the emperor relied upon traditional methods of divination, called geomancy, to choose the location for the Citadel. With a wish to create a sort of mini-Forbidden City like the one in Beijing, tens of thousands of labourers were conscripted to construct his fortress and palace. They dug a ten kilometer moat, along with thick earthen walls, to create the Citadel's perimeter. Copying the French military architect Vauban, these earthen walls were later replaced by two-meter-thick stone walls. Inside the outer perimeter, a smaller moat and smaller brick walls bounded the emperor's Purple Forbidden City. The Purple Forbidden City, besides elaborate residences, also included a network of gates, courtyards, and administrative buildings. The emperor didn't live to see the completion of his architectural masterpiece; dying in 1820, the Citadel was finally completed in 1832 by Gia Long's son, the Emperor Minh Mang.

Rick Stein's food tour across Vietnam

by jonny @ Vietnam Travel -

We're back in the UK for a few more weeks still so it was great to see Vietnam featured on primetime TV on Thursday night, when Rick Stein, a popular UK chef, spent an hour travelling and eating through Vietnam as part of his Far Eastern Oddessey, which can be viewed here on BBC iPlayer.

We really enjoyed the show - and it was great to see a travel program on Vietnam where for once the food featured was about much more than macho presenters drinking snake's blood - food in Vietnam is so divine it always annoys me to see countless presenters grossing-out over dishes that many people in Vietnam wouldn't eat, either.

Retracing the journey

For those who have developed a taste for Vietnam after seeing Rick's show, here's a quick itinerary of his travels, should you wish to explore some of the places he saw and foods he ate!

He started the show visiting floating villages and the market in Chau Doc, at the border with Cambodia, deep in the Mekong Delta, before heading to the trading hub of the Mekong, Can Tho - famous its floating market, though he didn't pay it a visit.

Hue's Royal Tombs and Pagodas

by jonny @ Vietnam Travel -

The imperial capital of the Nguyen Dynasty from 1802 to 1945, Hue is filled with beautiful monuments, impressive architecture, and is especially well-known for its royal tombs. Sadly, the city suffered a lot of damage during the Vietnam War, due to its location close to the border of North Vietnam. American bombs damaged many of the historic sites at Hue, and once the war was over, the Vietnamese Communist Party intentionally neglected the remaining historic sites because they were seen as remnants of a “feudal regime”.

Happily for Vietnam and visitors to Vietnam, recent years have brought a change in policy, and the history of Hue is gradually being restored. Despite the damage done, Hue remains a beautiful, fascinating place to visit.

The Citadel

The Nguyen emperors made their home the Citadel, a massive stone fortress that conjures up more scenes of battle than of luxury – the Beijing Forbidden City this is not. Although it's referred to as 'ancient', the Citadel was built in the early 1800s, and covers an area of 6 km. Walls ten metres thick surround the outer edge, but inside are open courtyards filled with beautiful gardens and private apartments.

Vietnam's version of the Forbidden City was almost totally destroyed by French in the late 1940s. The Citadel became a battle site again in 1968 during the Tet Offensive of the Vietnam War. Today, less than a third of the inner palaces and apartments remain. Renovations are starting to restore some of the Citadel's former glory.
