Right now I am in Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi, known for its French colonial architecture and rich culture with Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences.
This is Hoi An in Vietnam and it really is a special place. It’s home to the most breathtaking stretch of beach I saw in this whole region.
You can rent an apartment in Dalat for around $380, eat out for less than a buck...and get a good hour-long massage for $6. It's not easy to find English-language real estate agents and service providers. One neat trick is to head to the university and make friends with some students.
