Vietnamese province cleans up image after children beggars spook tourists

Vietnamese province cleans up image after children beggars spook tourists. Ha Giang, an emerging destination in northern Vietnam, has become more famous for the wrong reason recently.


It is most famous for the Dong Van Karst Global Geopark, stretching 235,000 hectares (581,000 acres) over four districts of Quan Ba, Yen Minh, Dong Van and Meo Vac, and recognized by the UNESCO as one of the 77 geological parks in the world.

Vast fields of buckwheat flowers, stunning terraced rice fields and the diverse culture of various ethnic communities are also major draws.

Ha Giang received more than 850,000 visitors last year, an increase of 11.9 percent over 2015, with 176,000 foreign tourists, official data shows.

Ha Giang Province is taking action to make sure tourists are not put off by recent reports of child begging and reckless drivers.

The Vietnam National Administration of Tourism said in a report on Friday that local authorities are taking these reports seriously, promising to protect visitors to the mountainous province by ending infamous practices that could put tourists in danger.

The new report from the tourism administration also mentioned other issues, including xe om (motorbike taxi) drivers fighting over passengers and local teenage drivers who flout traffic laws.

"These issues have left bad impacts on the image of Ha Giang's tourism and upset tourists," the report said.

Mui Ne, a paradise in central Vietnam for the adventurous

Mui Ne, a paradise in central Vietnam for the adventurous. Those who want an action-packed weekend need to check out this coastal town and what it offers.

Take a trip to the resort town of Mui Ne in Binh Thuan Province to find out why it’s considered one of the best destinations for adventure tourism.

For years its “Little Moscow,” beautiful beaches and seafood have pulled in many visitors, but Mui Ne has recently emerged as a paradise for adrenaline addicts.

Strong winds, big waves and an all-year tropical climate mean that, for the town, everything just clicks.

That’s why Singapore-based news and lifestyle site Asia One has dubbed Mui Ne one of the best five places in Asia for sports fans.

The other four are: Macau, Nepal, Palawan and Singapore.

Mui Ne, a paradise in central Vietnam for the adventurous


“Mui Ne offers many exciting water sports like windsurfing, surfing, jet-skiing, and kayaking. To further appease the adrenaline junkie's thirst for adventure, there is also kite-surfing,” Asia One said. 

“Similar to but not the same as regular surfing or windsurfing, in kite-surfing, you ride a modified surfboard or kite-board on the waves while holding onto a specially-designed parachute-like kite, relying on only the wind to push you forward,” it said.

Once a sleepy fishing village, Mui Ne still manages to preserve some of its old-time charm.

At least for a day, walk away from the tourist hubs and blend in with the fishing communities. Many locals will be happy if you want to help.

A day as a fisherman or fisherwoman can really be an adventure.

Or take a 20-kilometer bike ride to Bau Trang, a freshwater lotus lake with mesmerizing green water. Motobikes are also available for rent.

But the journey is even better than the destination. Along the way, you will find creamy white sand dunes, as if you just walked into a magical world.

If you want to play with the sand, rent a jeep or slide down the dunes.

Why not give your stomach an adventure too?

The seafood is as fresh as you expect. But there’s more. Try banh can, the signature dish of the region.

Watch local cooks make it for you by pouring rice flour into the mold. The cakes are best served hot with a dipping sauce that combines fish sauce, egg, green mango and pork skin. Because nothing in Mui Ne is ever boring.

Travel bloggers share what they don’t like about Vietnam

Travel bloggers share what they don’t like about Vietnam. Hannah and Adam, the couple behind the popular travel blog Getting Stamped, say they really like Vietnam. But there are things in Vietnam that can get under their skin, even though not bad enough to stop them from coming back.

Here's a list of things that they "will not miss about Vietnam."

Stolen sidewalks

Adam described the sidewalks in Vietnam as everything but a place to walk. He said he was constantly stopped by motorbike parking, eateries and shops.

Both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City have launched their sidewalk cleanup campaigns, which if effective will be able to solve this problem for pedestrians.

Scams

Foreigners can sometimes be charged a lot more in Vietnam. Adam said he was once asked by a bus driver to pay an extra VND100,000 ($4.4) just because he carried a bag. He refused to pay more than the fare.

His tip: Put on a confident face and laugh.

Line cutting
“Lines and order don’t matter in Vietnam, it’s whoever pushes harder or is more bold gets ahead,” the couple said on their blog.

While this kind of generalization doesn't sound fair, line cutting is without a doubt a problem in Vietnam. In many places, people simply don't queue up for their turn. But if you are lucky, the stars will bring you a line of polite, patient Vietnamese.

The Vietnamese size

The 30-something couple thinks that the Vietnamese size of everything, especially seats and bathrooms are not comfortable for westerners.

Motorbikes


Vietnam is one of the world's biggest motorbike markets and it is sometimes dubbed the “heaven” of motorbikes. Well, that only makes sense to manufactures. For locals and visitors, it's not exactly hell but it's really far from heaven.

Hannah and Adam could not even find the right words to describe the chaos. “You just won’t understand the scope of this complaint until you visit Vietnam."

Public nose picking

“Think of the nice little lady making your sandwich,” Adam wrote.

And that's one thought nobody wants to have.

Having to bargain on food

The couple believes it’s okay to fight for the best price, but that should not be an ordeal when someone is only in their dining mood. Their advice? Tourists should pay just a fourth of the first asking price, they said.

We say it depends. For many fancy restaurants and cheap eats around the country, the prices are actually fixed and tourists can simply pay whatever the bill is. But it's true some places overcharge tourists, even local travelers.

Sweet coffee

To Adam, it’s petty, but it’s still an unpleasant memory. He said that every time he wanted black coffee, he would end up with an overly sweet cup of bad coffee.

We, however, believe this is just a communication issue and can easily be fixed. Our tip: "khong duong" means "no sugar."

Do you agree with this list? What turns you off when you're in Vietnam?

Vietnam ranked third most expensive travel destination in Southeast Asia

You know: "Vietnam ranked third most expensive travel destination in Southeast Asia". The country has gone from the third cheapest in the region to the third most expensive in just two years.

Vietnam ranked third most expensive travel destination in Southeast Asia


Vietnam has been ranked third from bottom in Southeast Asia when it comes to price competitiveness, only standing above Singapore and Cambodia, according to the biennial Travel and Tourism Competitiveness report produced by the World Economic Forum.

The ranking is based on 14 factors, including price competitiveness. In the 2015 report, Vietnam was the third cheapest place to visit in Southeast Asia.


Despite the drop in price ranking, Vietnam still jumped eight spots overall globally in the report, ranking 67th and surpassing regional peer the Philippines for the first time.

Tourists were lured by its rich natural and cultural resources, stated the report.

To continue enhancing competitiveness, the country should focus on environmental sustainability and infrastructure development, with the latter being the second worst in Southeast Asia. From now to 2026, Vietnam’s tourism sector will continue to expand and become more attractive, it added.

Vietnam welcomed over 3 million foreign visitors in the first quarter of this year. The country is on track to reach its target of welcoming 11.5 million international visitors this year, which is projected to contribute over $20 million to the economy.

Tourism is expected to contribute 10 percent to Vietnam’s gross domestic product by 2020 when the country expects to receive up to 20 million foreign visitors and earn $35 billion in tourism revenue.

The best coffee shops in Hanoi for 2017

Our food critic explored the city and came up with this list of places loved by both locals and foreigners, as well as CNN, NatGeo and The New York Times.

The best coffee shops in Hanoi for 2017


Hanoi Social Club

The three-story coffee house is down a quiet alley on Hoi Vu Street, Hoan Kiem District, and also serves lunch and dinner. The shop is recommended by many foreign visitors because of its live music shows that feature Vietnamese and foreign artists every week.

Dinh

Giang’s daughter opened the shop and named it after Dinh Tien Hoang Street, where the café opens on the second floor of an old house. The narrow space looking over the Hoan Kiem Lake is usually packed. It serves a simple menu with coffee, cocoa drinks, lemon juice and several herbal summer drinks. And to preserve the family’s heritage, it definitely serves egg coffee.

The Hanoi episode of NatGeo’s "Street Food Around The World" series, aired in 2012, featured a visit to the shop, where the presenter discovered the making of coffee through a filter before sneaking across the room full of drinkers to claim one of its favorite balcony seats.

Giang

The coffee shop is named after its founder Nguyen Van Giang, who is known as the creator of the city’s famous egg coffee, or café trung. Giang invented the unlikely beverage in 1946 when he was working as a bartender at the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hotel. It is a blend of coffee and egg whites, folded with sugar and drunk hot or cold, and thus was a perfect alternative to capuccino given the limited milk supplies at the time.

Giang originally stood on Hang Gai Street but now has two outlets on Nguyen Huu Huan in Hoan Kiem District and Yen Phu in Tay Ho. Both are popular destinations to foreigners and locals alike.

Ca Phe Pho Co

This shop, meaning “coffee in the Old Quarter,” stands deep inside an old house on Hang Gai Street and is hard to find for first-timers. But many customers return, either for the drinks or the exotic space with decorative antiques and woodcrafts, as well as a plenty of trees on all floors.

The favorite seats are on the terrace, which takes a climb up three flights of stairs and offers “a sweeping view over thousands of motorbikes on their circumambulation around the Hoan Kiem Lake,” the New York Times said in its 2014 feature “36 Hours in Hanoi,” in which it recommended the café as a great stop during the capital’s infamous rush hour.

Again, the shop is known for its egg coffee, while smoothies, shakes, sundaes and beer are also on the menu.

Loading T

Occupying the second floor of an ancient house on Chan Cam Street in Hoan Kiem District, Loading T is another stop for egg coffee. As CNN said in a new documentary: “In Hanoi, it’s all about egg coffee.” Still, it probably tastes different in this atmostphere. The shop is also loved for its teas, smoothies and cakes.

“People in Hanoi, they love coffee. So you can really explore Hanoi through coffee shops,” said the presenter of the CNN film.
Hanoi House

The shop on Ly Quoc Su Street is a cozy stop down a small alley with a view of St. Joseph’s Cathedral from an antique attic. The shop serves a long list of drinks and despite its narrow space, there are many private corners that drinkers can squeeze themselves into. Old tiles, hanging lights and soft French music just entice the romanticism.

Manzi

Manzi is a bar and coffee shop in an ancient French villa on Phan Huy Ich Street, which is close to the West Lake and the Old Quarter. The first floor is usually taken as a working space where drinkers sit with their laptops for hours. The second floor is more like a place for dating or reading with a drink. The shop also hosts small exhibitions of paintings, photographs and sculptures, along with talk shows and live music.

There are a lot of good coffee shops in Hanoi where you can grab a Vietnamese coffee specialty. “But Manzi is the only place in town where you could grab that same coffee and get some art,” a New York Times presenter said in “36 Hours in Hanoi."
