Vietnam ,Danang and al.!!!

So here I am reviewing with new text and new /old photos on my memorable trips to Vietnam. I was there several times, amazing trips and good cheers, new friends and continues. I have written before on Danang but here is a bit more; hope you enjoy the post.

We drove by car from the airport of Chu lai, to Bung Tao , a airy picnic type large place with local service and good food of the area, fish sea and river, and great Tiger beers with a lively table of 10, lots of cheers and happy crowd, the driver was good lol! This one of course will take a good local to take you to it, but here for the memories and good cheers.


At Chu lai airport was just a country airstrip but apparently busy as it is close to the beaches; and of course it was built by the USA… B52 landed here. we flew on VASCO domestic Vietnam Airlines.  The best info on it found this webpage

Chu Lai, the capital of the Nui Thanh District, is the perfect gateway to the greater Quang Ngai province in Vietnam’s south-central coast. During the Vietnam War this port town was a military base for the US Marine Corp, acting as a supplemental airfield to their main base in Da Nang.

At Chu Lai, we drove passing by Quang Ngai to Da Nang. Here we had a night stay across the beach at the Hotel Doan 27, 128 Trường Sa street (trade union hotel) nothing fancy ,it houses the army personnel when on manouvers,and then a tourist hotel the rest of the time, basic training, food for breakfast order before hand, and not that great chow; the beach across was great thus,and wonderful views from my room. Here again see the pictures as cannot find a webpage, the locals took me here , to get rid of me hahahaha!!! The best part is that next door there was a small cafe where I tasted the best coffee in Vietnam!!! again just in the corner of the hotel and sideways facing the beach. The best can find on the web is this traveloka webpage:



Well got something, above is photo from hotel to beach!

We did ate here , first at Tea house Viet Nam,  very nice clean place we had good soups here,and rices, with green and yellow tea and water, very cheap I was told my friends paid lol!  The name escapes me again !!!

We drove from Danang to Hanoi. I finally took my flight back to Paris at Hanoi, by midnite, the flight was smooth,and on time. This is a nice size airport spacious and easy to navigate. I was at the VN airlines business lounge so that made it easier me think. Webpage :

This was a road warrior trip and skipping long distance by air on Vietnam Airline. It gave the opportunity to get a quick glance at the country and for future trips better manage the relationships. The best way to mix business and pleasure and see a new country, Vietnam , and a new city Danang. Hope you enjoy the post

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
