When I visited Vietnam back in 2016, I always wanted to go back. I fell in love with the food, the life there (from an affordability perspective and coffee of course) and the vibe in general. It wasn’t too rushed like say, Thailand, nor was it way too relaxed like how I remember Jakarta to be.
I incidentally picked up an Air Max 1 during this trip, which was the sneaker that I wore all through my trip to Malaysia and Vietnam back in 2016.
But going by the images I took through this trip, it would appear like Connie Yan is the hero of the 2019 journey through Vietnam. Lol.
The trip was broken into 3 parts.
Part 1: I arrive into Ho Chi Minh from Bombay and Connie from Brisbane. Thereafter, we make our way to Hanoi to attend the wedding of Kathy and Karl.
Part 2: Connie decides to book us a tour through the Ninh Binh Province, that was a day filled with physical activity. I know right?
Part 3: We return to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) for a few more days before we make our way back to our respective lives.
In this edition, we look at Part 1 and Part 2. I will prep a follow-up blog post for Part 3 in the coming week.
To kick things off, here are the travel vlogs from my YouTube Channel for Part 1 and Part 2.
And now, let me take you folks through our trip in images.

Let me know what you make of the Vlog and the basic images. Make sure to leave a comment on the video as well as here, if you have any thoughts.
Stay tuned for the vlog and images of stage 3 of our trip. See you soon on the next one, you guys.
