Viet Nam : Cu Chi Underground Tunnel

A Lady Trying to Fit in a Tight Hole

I first learned of VietNam's Underground Tunnels during my teen-age years. I remember that I have been told that the Americans lost the war in Saigon because of the crafty and ingenious battling techniques of the Vietnamese soldiers. While the mighty Americans were loaded with battle gears and ammunition, the Vietnamese has their impossible terrain, man-made booby traps and the protection of a series of holes and tunnels that made up the Ben Duoc Underground Tunnel Complex.

My Top 10 Travels of 2014

It is that time of the year again when I share my top 10 travels for a year. Why "top"? Basically, because it has become my favorite and it has provided some memorable traveling experiences for me. Getting premium for me were places I have visited for the first time because, well, there is nothing like the excitement and thrill of first time. Some places on the list were revisited mainly because I enjoyed going there and these places mostly garnered my top choices in previous years. So, here...

My top choice for 2014 is Siem Reap with the amazing temples of Angkor. It is easy to fall in love with Seam Reap because it offers a laid back vibe coupled with a surprising exploration and adventure. Angkor Wat, Angkor Tom, Banteay Srei... and list of temples go on. And after impossibly exploring its temples, Siem Reap remains to be a little charmer with old French shop-houses, shady tree-lined boulevards and a slow-flowing river.

Students need to travel too, that is according to Mc Pol of The Weekened Sidetrip. This school boy finds no reason why everyone should not start traveling young, to seized the day and to live without regrets. As students, Mc Pol believes that they still have years to explore the world, experience other culture, share knowledge and learn things from other places. The school is just a small piece of the biggest university which is the world.

Colonial Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City is a metropolis on the move and I am not just talking about the City's plentiful motorbikes. Historically known as Saigon, it is Vietnam's most dizzying, high-octane city of commerce and culture that has driven the whole forward with its limitless energy and booming economy.
