My 5: The Happy Heart Cafe – Danang, Vietnam.

The Happy Heart Cafe Danang Vietnam

1. The Happy Heart Cafe, May 2018. It was high time for my annual injection of English Breakfast, a culinary delight unavailable to me in Ruian, China; unless I perhaps cook it myself with substandard ingredients from the supermarket. So I just abstain, reminding myself that the next time I’m back on the road I’ll […]

My 5: Monkey Mountain (Son Tra) – Danang, Vietnam.

Linh Ung Pagoda, Monkey Mountain Danang

1. Monkey Mountain (Son Tra), May 2018. It was my last day in Danang and, despite my overriding sense of apathy, I forced myself out of bed and took a taxi out to Son Tra, better known to foreign travellers as Monkey Mountain.

Danang Cathedral, Vietnam.

1. Danang Cathedral, April 2018. With so much to see and do in Danang it’s easy to overlook some of its more understated spots. I’m always keen to rack up another cathedral for my world collection, so I made sure to hit this pretty pink edifice on my way to breakfast one morning. 2. Danang […]

My 5: The Marble Mountains – Danang, Vietnam.

Marble Mountain Danang Vietnam

1. Marble Mountains, April 2018. I think I may be turning into a spoilt traveller. On the face of it The Marble Mountains are something I should have gotten excited about. After all they’re one of Danang’s top attractions, an area of considerable natural beauty that all the big travel sites salivate over. “Essential!” says Travelfish, […]

My 5: The Happy Yacht – Danang, Vietnam.

The Happy Yacht Danang Vietnam

1. The Happy Yacht, May 2018. If your Danang wanderings take you anywhere near The Han River (and shame on you if they don’t), it’s virtually impossible to miss this immense, luxury, five floor super yacht parked on the river’s western banks, a short walk from the head end of Dragon Bridge.
