Vespa Safari tours “serious fun in Hue”

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...

HUNGRY AND HAUNTED IN HUE

On my first day in Hue, I crossed the bridge into the old city from the South Bank, walking over the Perfume River and into the mist surrounding the Citadel.

In Saigon, my mid-afternoon rewards were a hodgepodge of other fun snacks, but banh ep remained elusive. Before I made it into the gates of the old city, hunger pangs hit. In Vietnam, a so...

Indochina – Chapter 3: Hue and Hoi An

Steve Aldridge Silver Travel Advisor, Forum Moderator and Award-Winning Travel Write     The Vespas and the Lanterns Our second night in Hue was amongst the most enjoyable we had spent in Asia. We were picked up from our hotel by two drivers with Vespas and taken on a food safari. Riding pillion on a scooter in Vietnam is an experience in itself but by now we were used to the ‘road etiquette’ (such as it was). So we relaxed and let our drivers guide us through the city lig...

One Day in Hue

Background Our time in Hue was short but sweet, and for us one day in Hue (a very full day!) was enough. In fact, at one stage we even contemplated whether we should have included it on the itinerary at all. This isn’t to say that Hue has nothing of interest for the independent traveller. Far from it! However once you look beyond the food, unless you’re a mad keen tomb raider or history buff you may find yourself at a loose end. Hue is a small city with a very rich history. In fact, from the...

Before deciding to take the trip, I only knew that Elephant spring is a tourist destination located on the way from Hue to Da...
