Looking for something different to do in Hue? Then look no further than a Vespa Safari Tour! We’ll admit being motorcycle riders ourselves, we’re not too keen on being pillion passengers. Hence why we each have our own bikes haha. But on the Vespa Safari tour we didn’t even think about the fact that we were pillion passengers. Owner Tu Doan and his team looked after us so well, that when it came time to say goodbye we were reluctant to let them go lol. What is a Vespa? We’re glad you as...

Though there are tourists, they don’t really seem to bump into each other the way they do in other major tourist attractions around the world. However, we when arrived in Hue, we ran face-first into the type of tourism trap that I imagined much of ...
