The Hue Museum of Royal Antiquities attracts flocks of tourists who visit the Hue Imperial Palace. Over a century ago, during the reign of King Thieu Tri, the Nguyen Dynasty dedicated Long An Palace to preserving the dynasty's treasures. Through many ups and downs, much of the Palace was destroyed by warfare, yet this place remains intact and houses many rare antiques like the costumes of kings, queens, mandarins, soldiers, unique Vitreous enamel ceramics commissioned by the Nguyen dynasty from famous porcelain kilns in China and Europe, and collections of old currencies and cannonballs.
Empty Streets of Hoi An. Although Vietnam is getting recognized as one of the countries that have successfully controlled the spread of Covid-19 and restrictions on domestic travel, there is no doubt that the economic repercussions are felt in places that were once filled with travellers.
For cities like Hoi An where International tourism accounts for a big chunk of the city's income, the pain of Covid-19 is all too real.
As for locals and expats like me, this is a time to get to explore the city sans the sea of color-coded tourists.

Far from Moc Chau Farm Town 2km opposite Moc Chau Tea Company, when you come here, you will see Shan Tuyet Tea Hill more than 60 years of age, tea hill associated with history right from the first day of the establishment of Nong town Moc Chau school. The entrance of the tea hill is two green paths, young leaves, fresh and romantic scenery with quiet people. When you reach the top of the tea hill, looking to the East in the early dawn will bring up a romantic scene, suitable for those who want to hunt early morning photos.
In March and April each year when young tea buds sprout, it is also the time when Moc Chau tea hill is changed to a new green color. This is also the time when Moc Chau tea hill is the most beautiful. The best time to see Moc Chau tea hill is at dawn and early morning and dusk.
Coming to Moc Chau this summer, you will be immersed in the natural beauty of the green tea hills. Every year after the Winter-Spring crop, tea farmers in Moc Chau often work on cutting tea (cutting old tea branches) to wait for the next crop (Spring-Summer crop) to have new bud tea.

Happiest in Phong Nha 🌞 *save these tips for you’re own kickass trip to Phong Nha*
1️⃣ Sleep at Linhs homestay (it’s simple, cheap and central). Quyen who runs the place is a real life ANGEL. Anything you need, she’s gotchu.
2️⃣ Rent a motorbike and drive a loop around the national park, stopping at the botanic gardens and paradise cave, then cool off by swimming at dark cave before heading back to town. If you’re feeling adventurous take the local shortcut (see igTV video)
3️⃣ Do a hiking & caving trip with @jungleboss_vietnam 🌿 They take you to some of the most impressive caves in the region (I’ve done the Abandoned Valley and Elephant Cave treks and both were amazing)
4️⃣ Eat the local spring rolls - they have this spicy coriander sauce that I’ve never seen anywhere else in Vietnam.
5️⃣ Take a boat trip to Phong Nha cave (pictured). The cave isn’t as big as Paradise cave but the boat ride there is so pretty 😍
6️⃣ Giggle a LOT at duck stop 🦆 I will say no more. Just go.
7️⃣ Buy a Vietnamese nón lá hat. Because who doesn’t love going full tourist?
