French Quarter Hanoi | Map and Guide for First Time Visitors

by Lê Hoàng @ Hanoi Free Local Tours

French Quarter In the past, under the domination of the French colonialist, Hanoi was separated into three regions which are French area, Vietnamese area and concession area. Up till now, the French area has been known as the French Quarter. Compared to the Old Quarter, French Quarter might be not as bustling as its neighbor but it would take you to another part of Hanoi soul – the charming and elegant one. Let us help you to grasp some must-know things about the area. 1. History: French Quarter in Hanoi mainly formed and developed during the French colonial period, from […]

Gastronomic gastropods- Vietnamese loves snails !

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

From Michelin-starred fine dining, to chili-laden, beer-swilling, street-food staple, the humble snail takes many forms. Oysters, lobsters, sushi and snails; all now “posh” and expensive elements of global food culture. They were, however, once all considered to be the food of the lower-classes. In fact, oysters were so plentiful during the European colonization of the Americas that their crushed shells were a common component in brick making. Likewise, the practice of wrapping raw fish (and other meats) in rice was, many centuries ago, a common way for Japanese farmers and fishermen to preserve food for several months at a time. And then there’s lobster, that ubiquitous element of modern fine dining. According to a report on the creature’s recent popularity by the U.K.’s Telegraphnewspaper, the clawed crustacean was “once not deemed worthy for anything other than the ‘lowest of the low.’” It’s funny how things change. Add a bit of gold leaf, a smear of pureed veg, a froth of salty foam, and a jacked-up price tag, and suddenly the cuisine of the working classes jumps a few steps up the social ladder. As with bread, beef, carrots and coffee, it would be easy to assume that the practice of...

Saigon to Hanoi by Motorbike: 5 Suggested Routes

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

Riding from Saigon to Hanoi by motorbike is probably the most popular road trip in Vietnam, and it’s unquestionably one of the best ways to experience the country. For years, travellers simply took the most obvious route: Highway 1. Today, however, thanks to ambitious road building programs, there are far more scenic, pleasant and less trodden ways to ride between the country’s two main cities. Having ridden south to north on numerous occasions (the first time, predictably, on Highway 1), I’ve put together the following 5 suggested motorbike routes from Saigon to Hanoi, so that travellers who are planning this road trip have more of an idea of the kind of options available to them. 1. THE CLASSIC: Total Distance: 2,770km Average Duration: 2-4 weeks Road Conditions: paved rural & coastal back-roads, new & old highways Navigation: mostly simple, some tricky bits in central areas Scenery: coast, highlands, mountains, limestone, cities, villages, cultural sites DESCRIPTION: Weaving a course between coast and highlands, The Classic route is equal parts beach and mountain. Quiet, stunning coastal roads in the south and central provinces yield to a mighty landscape of limestone karsts on the Ho Chi Minh Road in the north-central region. Popular towns and sights, such as Mui...

Six reasons why summer (kinda) rhymes with sugar in Vietnam

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

There are millions of ways to enjoy the cool, sweet taste of summer in Vietnam, so here are some of our favorites. Che The sweet, slippery soup is one of the most iconic Vietnamese desserts. There are dozens of versions, ranging from a simple glass of just lotus seeds to a rainbow of beans, roots, cassava and jelly cubes. Crowded che stands can be found in most big markets across the country, including Nam Dong in Hanoi and Ben Thanh in Ho Chi Minh City. For something different, tourists can try the one served at the Cambodian market in the southern city. The shop is owned by a Vietnamese man who grew up in Cambodia but returned in the 1970s, serving the best of both Cambodian and Vietamese desserts. A serving usually costs $1 or less. Ice-cream in a coconut shell One scoop of ice-cream for the summer, or two? Well, it might be easier if you just have it all in a coconut. Kem dua is a special Vietnamese version of ice-cream served in a coconut shell topped with coconut strips, peanuts and chocolate sauce. The best way to eat it is to dig the spoon deep and take a full bite...

Autumn spirit served up in the form of rice flakes by Hanoi village

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

Like pumpkins and candy at Halloween, rice flakes are a must during the fall in the capital. It is an unwritten rule that when you talk about autumn in Hanoi, you have to mention rice flakes. No one knows when the flat sticky rice first became an autumn delicacy in the capital, but the art of making the tasty snack has been well-preserved for more than a century in Me Tri Village. More than 50 households in this village have their fires burning for rice flakes twice a year, depending on the harvest season. Experience shows that rice picked during fall makes the best rice flakes because it is sweeter and more aromatic. The sticky rice used for rice flakes should come from young plants. Me Tri Village in Nam Tu Liem District and Vong Village in Cau Giay District are the most famous places in the north for this treat. These women are removing the grains from paddy flowers. The grains are soaked in water. The tailings, which float to the surface, are removed. The grains are roasted for two hours.  Then they are ground under a wooden pestle, and the ground grains are screened again to remove all the husks. The final product is wrapped in lotus leaves, and these green-yellow...

7 winter warmers to ward off the cold in Hanoi

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

Follow the locals to nameless roadside eateries as the cold snap bites in Vietnam’s capital. Snails Unlike the spicy snails that are carefully fried or grilled in Saigon, the snails served on cold days in Hanoi are simply boiled. Feel the steam from the snails served with ginger sauce and lemongrass. Snails tend to appear in the rivers around Hanoi between autumn and winter. Try the tasty treats in small restaurants at 5 Tong Duy Tan, 1 Dinh Liet, 34A Tran Phu and 88 Cua Bac. Sweet dumplings These dumplings are made from sticky rice stuffed with mung beans or black sesame. The rice balls are then soaked in ginger syrup and served hot. Head to Hang Dieu, Quan Thanh or Tay Ho far a sample of these sweet balls from either age-old eateries or street vendors. Rib porridge Hanoi people love rib porridge and it’s needless to say why this hot congee with quay(fried dough) is a perfect choice for a cold day. There’s a nameless roadside stall at 2A Ly Quoc Su Street that man locals say serves the best rib porridge in Hanoi. You can also find this hot treat in Dong Xuan Market.

51 Unique + Fun Things to do in Chile | Chile

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

If you’re traveling down the Gringo Trail, Chile might feel unexpectedly familiar. There are no ramshackle busses or alpacas wandering the streets. Instead, there are arbitrary laws, expensive cups of coffee, and high speed internet connections. In some weird way, you might miss the chaos. I wondered whether I was making a mistake by blowing the rest of my travel budget on a place that looked so much like home (and cost as much, too). But there’s something special about Chile. After I really got to know it, Chile became one of my favorite countries. Perhaps it was because I finally started to speak Spanish or was traveling on my own for the first time in years, or perhaps it’s just because Chile is diverse,  dynamic, and completely fascinating. Want to experience Chile beneath the surface? I bet you’ll dig it too. From geodesic domes where you can spend the night to the otherworldly nature of Patagonia, here’s are some of the weird, wild, and totally fun things to do in Chile. Very Chilean Experiences 1. Start up north for the gentle surf & sun in Arica (Arica y Parinacota) 2. Head into Valle de Elqui for a pisco tasting tour by bicycle (Coquimbo) […]

Only Happy When It Rains (ft. Florence) | Italy

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

When it rains in Florence, Botticelli Angel umbrellas create an impenetrable fortress between human and sky. Lines to enter the Il Duomo di Firenze are almost as impressive as the cathedral itself, and you can forget about seeing The Birth of Venus without an iPad hovering in the foreground. Happy couples get caricature sketches while those that argued over getting lost all day slug back carafes of Sangiovese wine and binge eat pizza instead. It’s no secret there’s a dense collection of Renaissance art and architecture in Florence, and apparently, people are into it.  Each year, the UNESCO World Heritage city (population 370,000) welcomes 16 million tourists, and you can really, really feel it. It’s fair to say that pretty little Florence has a tourist problem. If you imagine Florence to be like a quaint photo, you might not like the city much at all. But if you don’t mind getting off the main streets and watching the crowds from afar, you’ll find garish window displays at high-fashion retailers, quirky cocktail bars, and local markets selling plenty of divine Italian food that isn’t even pasta. Want to get beyond the top 10 and see the secrets of Florence? Here’s some street photography […]

Hanoi Coffee | About The Best Coffee in Vietnam

by Lê Hoàng @ Hanoi Free Local Tours

Hanoi Coffee Culture I, Hanoi Coffee Culture I.1 Overview of Coffee in Hanoi The coffee was first imported to Hanoi by French during their first colonial exploitation here. With the formation of the French Quarter where the French immigrated, they brought their favorite drink, and Hanoi coffee began to take its first steps on the streets around Hoan Kiem Lake. Following the French invasion at the 1800s, coffee was introduced in Vietnam, but the source of coffee back then was limited therefore it was considered as a luxury good, only the French colonists along with Nguyễn dynasty’s nobles could have […]

Fancy one of the world’s greatest food experiences? Try Hanoi

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

                                       Tourists eat out late at night in Hanoi. Photo by VnExpress/Giang Huy The Telegraph gets its teeth into Hanoi cuisine, and it’s not the famous ‘pho’ or Obama’s ‘bun cha’ Many people are drawn to a destination just because of how well it triggers their appetite, and for that reason, Hanoi is one of the world’s greatest cities to visit, The Telegraph recommends. The U.K. newspaper published a list of “the world’s 17 greatest cities for food” on Sunday and the Vietnamese capital grabbed second spot, after Tokyo. “Hanoi’s compact old center is arguably the better place to sample the balance of salt, sweet, sour and spice in Vietnamese cuisine,” it said, comparing the city with the popular southern metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City, which is “more international”. Hanoi is where one can take to the streets and eat like a local, it said. The city offers some of the most popular Vietnamese dishes such as “banh mi”, a baguette usually filled with grilled pork, meatballs or cold cuts, cucumber, cilantro, pickled carrots, liver pâté and a swipe of mayonnaise, or “com...

Hanoi’s notorious black market, where anything goes

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

Don’t expect a receipt if you’re looking to buy anything from this market. Most Hanoians would be flummoxed if you asked them where Hoa Binh Market is, but if you asked them about Chợ Giời, it would be a different story. The name Chợ Giời tells a story itself as its earliest vendors used to gather in an open-air spot to sell pretty much everything they owned, hence the name “Giời”, meaning sky, God and outdoors in Vietnamese. The market is believed to have opened in 1955 on the corner of two streets, but since then it has expanded to more than four streets and two big alleys along the busy thoroughfares of Hue and Hang Bai. In Chợ Giời, vendors sell everything from car parts and metal springs to TV remotes. Some old, some new, some possibly stolen. The majority of the goods are mechanical items, and here you can find the tiniest screwdrivers to rare 1980’s amplifiers all under the same roof. Following the war and the subsidy period, Chợ Giời was split down into different departments. Yen Bai 2 Street was known for its CDs and DVDs  —  before the Internet and Youtube changed all that. Nguyen Cong Tru Street draws vendors selling...

Hanoi’s lantern festival

by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

An exhibition has revived the old spirit as Vietnam counts down to the full moon on Wednesday night. Lanterns for sale on Hang Gai Street during the Mid-Autumn Festival in 1926. The festival peaks on the full moon of the eighth lunar month, which falls on Wednesday this week. Children are drawn to a fish lantern outside a shop on Hang Gai in the Old Quarter.
