We’re on to part 6 of our mega blog series with successful photographer Sian Owen. In this episode, she takes us through the last stages of her stay in central Vietnam just before she headed to northern Vietnam.
For anyone looking to travel or teaching english in Vietnam, this will be such a useful read for travel tips and recommendations.
Danang Beach Hotel
“It was very decent, like any casual beach hotel, lots of tourists and a lively beach bar and pool area”
“Such an awesome place to visit, the whole bridge lights up at night and sort of livens up the whole city.”
“It’s very commercial and (music plays from the rocks as you hike up) but it’s a really awesome view from the top. The cost is only 400 000 VND.”
“Rent a motorbike from Motorvina ($20) and drive along the Hai Van Pass to Hue, if you can’t get a motorbike, there is a bus which costs about $6 and takes 3 hours.”
Charming Riverside Hotel
“I highly recommend this place and they have a really awesome ‘free’ breakfast”
“It’s really worth exploring inside, costs about $6 and I really enjoyed taking photos here. We didn’t get a guide but its possible to get one if you want”
Abandoned Water park
“Rent a scooter from motorvina and pay $5 for the day, you can ride out to this beautiful lake, I absolutely loved taking photos of the stunning ruins here”
“This is a local Vietnamese restaurant that everyone recommends online. The main Hue dish is “Neum Lui’ which is a minced pork kebab on a lemon grass stick with peanut sauce. It wasn’t my favourite, but its worth giving it a try.”
“If you feel like a break from local cuisine you get a pizza or pasta here – it was so delicious!”
