Next up: Phong Nha National Park

VIETNAM | Sunday, 10 March 2013 | Views [483]

Today we leave Hue, which has become our favorite spot so far on our trip. 12 days in (give or take... we keep losing track!) and we are starting to get the hang of things here.           

Vietnam has been an incredibly easy place to visit. Any ideas I had at the beginning about having to "rough it" are completely wrong.  We have been operating at almost the lowest budget option (dorms in hostels are cheaper than the hotels we've been staying at, but not by much) and we haven't even come close to giving up any amenities, including wifi.  If we weren't going into Laos next month I would feel silly about having packed so much travel clothing and supplies!

Today we move on to Phong Nha National Park (another UNESCO site) to spend some time visiting the region's wonderful caves. The park is slightly off the main tourist circuit, but once again we will be staying in relative luxury at Phong Nha Farmstay. We expect that this will actually be the most backpacker-y it will get for us in this country.

We'll send an update on those caves soon.
