Are you boring with touristic attraction around Hanoi and Old Quarter? Are you a real trekker? Do you want to find some new challenge during your time in Hanoi? If your answer is YES, you are reading the right post.On this post, I want to introduce a new places for both of local and foreign tourists – Ham Lon Moutain. As on my title, this is the highest places in Hanoi and is considered as the roof of Hanoi. It is located only 50 km from Hanoi’s Old Quarter towards North Thang Long – Noi Bai expressway. the way is very easy for motor-bikers to reach this places. It will just take you approximately one hour. Therefore, you can conquer this mountain on day or you can stay longer if you want to watch the sunset and sunrise on the mountain. Besides, on the foot this mountain, there is a large lake and is very suitable for you to camp over-night and have BBQ at night.

One more interesting information about this moutain is that there are many prosfessional trekker and young tourists who pracatice to conquer the Fansipan – the highest mountain in Indochina. That’s why it aslo has another nickname:” Fansipan inside Hanoi”. The highest point of this moutain is 462m.

To get more information, you can click: Indochina tours Vietnam

Every name has a meaning but after 3 times travelling to this places, I did not know why the local people call this moutain “Ham Lon”. In English, Ham Lon is “Pig Jaw” !??!! Most of local people just know that this name was considered as official name of this mountain for a long time and no one can understand why their grandparents call this moutain as “Pig Jaw”.

There two main path to touch the top this moutain. However, after 3 times conquer this moutain, I found that there are at least 6 paths to reach the top but for the first time, you should follow 02 main paths which there are many trekers choose. One path is very easy and suitable for biking. If you are professional biker, you can try. However, I have to remind that you are a real professional biker who try conquering high moutain before. With this path, you just start the foot of the mountain and make it all the way to the top through a fairly flat trail, of which the entire climb can take about two and a half hours. Visiting the Nui Bau Lake right at the start of the trail can give one a relaxing mood and get ready for the fight to the steep. Please to remind that you if you get lost, please to scream out and will someone will raise their voice to get back to you and you can follow their voice. However, this is the only way to find the support from other trekking groups because there is not any instruction board. If you feel unsafe with this trip, you can pay for some local people on the foot of moutain, then they will go with you for the whole day. It will cost you around 200,000 VND (around USD 10) for a whole day with local guide who can not speak English. One more note about this path is that it will covered by many bushes, so you should wear clothes covering all of part of your hand and knee. If you wear tank-top or short clothes, you will be hunted by bushes. On the first time, I wore short clothes and I had to pay for this with many scratches on my skin. The bushes on this moutain is not normal because I had tingle on my skin for a month. It seems be very dangerous for your skin. These below picture will show you how beautiful the easy path is

Easy

Most of tourists will choose the easy route to reach the top.

The difficult route is a option for tourists who have greater taste for adventure and discovery. I love this path but you will need some trekking equipments. You will have to cross small streams or through the bushes, the biggest slippery stones ever. Besides, there are some deep chasm, so climbing gear will be very useful. You will have no standard route here, climbers who prefer to reach the top this way will have to create their own road. It will take you about four to five hours to reach the peak at 462m through this route. Please to note that you should not try this way if you do not have any trekking experiences before. On this route, you can hire a local guide without speaking English but the price can be higher around at 300,000-400,000 VND for a whole day. In my personal opinion, if you decide to choose thi route, you accept a challenge and will not have to be based on any guide. For me, this route give me a special survival experiences. After that time with this route, I decided to discover other routes when I travel to Ham Lon. As I mentioned, I think that now, I can go to the top with 6 routes. Now, if I have free time at the weekend, I will go with my best friend to relax and free stress with this moutain. One more fun fact that I got lost once time and it took me 6,5 hours to reach the top. I feel worried a little bit but it was really memorable experience for us because we went into old forest and need the assistance of army man to back to easy route.

Difficult route is suitable for adventure/ trekking lovers

When you reach the top of Ham Lon Moutain,  you will see a fairly flat area and you can camp here to over-night or have lunch with BBQ there.

Please to remember collect all of rubbish after your camping and bring all things from Ham Lon Moutain after your trip. There are many younger camp on this area and throw many rubbish. It is really a shame.

I suggest you to get top through difficult route and get down the foot of mountain with easy path. I hope that you will have special and memorable experiences as I did with the roof of Hanoi.

Practices related to the Viet beliefs in the Mother Goddesses of Three Realms! What should you do in the evening in Hanoi? Would you like to explore Folk culture? After a few days visiting Hanoi, visitors may like to see something different, something is unique just being held in Vietnam? Outside the usual scope of performances tourists attend – mostly water puppetry – exists the Viet Theater’s artistic interpretation of “Lên Đồng” or “Hầu Đồng”, a traditional ritual in which a medium is possessed by several deities. Tứ Phủ – The Four Palace show is one of the latest shows in Hanoi that has been nurtured, idealized and arranged for 4 years before officially presented in late February 2016 in Cong Nhan Theatre which is three-minute walk to Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi, Vietnam.

“The four palaces” or Tu Phu Performance was inspired by the ritual of the spiritual medium ship (Len Dong) of the Mother Religion believing in The Mother Goddess who brings about favorable weather, happiness and fullness to people.

What does Four Palaces mean?

Vietnam is already home to world intangible cultural heritages, including Nha Nhac (royal court music), the Space of Gong Culture in the Central Highlands, Quan Ho (love duets), Ca tru (ceremonial singing) and Hung King worshipping rituals. In 2016, Vietnam summited the dossier on “the belief of the Mother Goddess of Three Realms worship by Vietnamese” for UNESCO recognition.

Mother Goddess worship is a traditional practice in Vietnam with a long history, having stood the test of social changes. The belief in Mother Goddess worship reflects people’s desire for health, wealth and fortune. The practice rituals meet belief-related needs by people in their daily life and have been closely associated with historical and cultural figures, such as Lieu Hanh, Au Co, Vuong Mau (legendary Mother of Saint Giong).

The practitioners are comprised of temple guardians, ritual priests, spirit mediums, mediums’ assistants, musicians who perform the songs for the spirits, disciples and lay adherents who share the same beliefs in the spiritual power, supernatural strength and protection of the Mother Goddess spirit pantheon. All of these practitioners form groups who worship together, take part in traditional festivals and perform spirit possession rituals at temples and palaces dedicated to Mother Goddesses. The folk belief shows the respect of children towards their mothers while reflecting the UNESCO spirit of preserving cultural and religious diversity.

Located in Mekong River Delta of Southern Vietnam, approximately 135km from Saigon, Vinh Long province is now easily accessible by car via the National Road 1A and the My Thuan Bridge.Let’s join with us in one day tour in Vinh Long to see what this province offers.

After 2 hours driving from the center of Saigon, we reached to the pier and embarked on a cruise. Our tour guide was a very friendly woman in the traditional costume a – the “ba ba” shirt and the traditional hat.

Our cruise took us to visit the brick kilns. It was a small factory but without machinery. The local people was creating beautiful potteries from clay by their own hands. We were surprised at how manually way they were doing cause it’s the 21st century already!

This man is focusing on making the pottery We came back to the boat and continue the trip by visiting a local workshop, where many local products were producing every day. Seeing how the coconut candy is made and try doing the rice paper by ourself. At first, we thought it was very easy to make, but it is always easier to look than done. It requires lots of technique and experience to make perfect products and the woman who made these things are really artists.

Will try making the rice paper by yourself? It requires more technique than you thought

We also had the chance to see how they make the pop rice and popcorn by a traditional way with a big hot pot and the special kind of sands. All were done beautifully and followed a smooth procedure.

This is the way how pop rice candy made

We enjoyed some kinds of candies and a cup of hot tea prepared by the friendly local people.

The boat took us to visit the orchard and traditional house of Ut Trinh family. We had a tasty lunch made with fresh local ingredients. After that, we enjoyed some kinds of fresh seasonal fruits when listening to the traditional music of local people. We then walked around the orchard to see the varieties of tropical fruits such as the jackfruit, durian, rambutan, mango, etc.

In the afternoon, we passed on a small rowing boat – as known as the sampan to go deeper into the countryside on smaller canals and enjoy a peaceful time. It was so interesting to see traditional houses made of wood or palm tree leaves and see some activities of the local farmers, see how they picked up fruits by ancestral ways in Mekong Delta.

Happy biking time!

Happy biking time!

The last activity of the trip is biking! We biked on the small roads around the orchard, yellow flowers were blooming on the way and there were some fruits hanging right above our heads! What a peaceful time! On the way, we passed a school and saw the children were playing at their break time playing some traditional games. It seemed like this place hasn’t been affected by the technology, the smartphones and social network.

Children are helping their parents to do some handcrafting. The products are made from water hyacinth

We back to the cruise and headed to Vinh Long city, where our car was waiting to take us back to Saigon. What an interesting day with many new things to see and do in Vinh Long!

Nowadays, local people in Hanoi do not use bicycle as one of the main transportation means. With the fast pace of life, streets are full of motorbikes, cars and buses, the capital city has become a little more hustle and bustle beside its authenticity.  Only students – mostly from Secondary schools – ride their bikes every morning going to nearby school, others live far in distance will choose electric-bike. These days, I miss a lot the times when having a bike for going to school is such a pride among us – high school students. We were wearing uniform which is white shirt or Ao Dai (for girls), having a funny bike racing in the school yard, or hanging out with friends in the weekends. Even now when I’m an officer and already got my driver license, I still love taking my old bike out and getting a short trip around my lovely city – why not?  Let’s explore the beauty of Hanoi by bike with: Indochina travel Vietnam

  1. West Lake

West Lake is the biggest lake – the air conditioner of Hanoi with cool and windy weather. With the diameter of approximately 17km, this is the most favorite place of coureur from professionals to amateurs or to anyone who loves the idea of biking along the peaceful lake.

In the early morning or late afternoon, this lake becomes more crowded as people here, especially couples, are keen on seeing sunrise/sunset. As the lake is really wide, you will have a totally panorama view of the scene where the sun is nearly going up/down.

Besides, the extreme highlight of this route is the lotus season.  Located near to the West Lake water-park is a 5 ha lotus field which blossom every June – July. The fresh scent of lotus and lotus tea will make your day more energetic. Lotus tea – one of the most elegant and sophisticated teas in Vietnam – is a specialty only served in the west lake where nowhere could ever compare. The tea is made by allowing the green tea to absorb the flower’s natural fragrance. This is done through several methods, but the most knowingly is stuffing green tea leaves into a flower and leaving them overnight.

  1. The Old Quarter and the Sword Lake

The Sword lake is the symbol of Hanoi which makes it the must-not-miss site. Normally, this place is always full of people who are walking or joining in cyclo, but how special it is to ride a bike and combine both the sword lake with the 36 old streets. In the early morning, a lot of local elder people come here to practice, do some light physical exercises and walking around this lake for 2-3 rounds. This is a very local experience beside Ngoc Son Temple, The Huc Bridge or the Turtle tower and lots of green old tree.

For the Old quarter, if you can visit here early in the morning when not so many stores and stalls are opened, you will feel the tranquility, see the old architectural houses with yellow outer walls, green wooden windows, or surprisingly Ta Hien street with no one which is totally different with the night Ta Hien street –  very noisy with tons of people.

Living in Hanoi for more than 20 years, I myself have to admit that there are a lot of places here I have not reached to but I know, Hanoi is always there waiting for me to feel it by my own way, special way.

In Vietnam, when the summer comes it’s time for companies to have holiday or company trip. Every year, companies have planned and searched for great locations/destinations for employees’ summer vacation.This is a great opportunity for whole team to know more each other and strengthen the bonds of friendship from different teams and departments, and also to charge energy, because happy workers can contribute more for the company.

The objectives for company annual trip are our executives can escape for a while from busy and stressful environment at the office. In this trip someone can relax their  body and mind and in the same time can spend a good quality time with their family. It’s also can strengthening a good relationship between executives and their family. Other benefit of this trip is our executive can work more focus and keep motivated to do they daily works. That mean happy worker can contribute more for the company.

Hai Hoa beach has white sand and blue water

This year, Indochina Voyages Team has planned an annual trip for our company in May. This trip involves the company executives with the spouse and children. We decided to visit Hai Hoa beach, is a well-known beach in the North of Vietnam. With the literal meaning of its name, Hai Hoa (means “Peaceful” ) beach in the north-central province of Thanh Hoa boasts the serenity that only beautiful natural scenery can provide (It is located  at Hai Hoa Commune, Tinh Gia District, Thanh Hoa Province, around 200 km from Hanoi). Its tiny white-capped summer waves attract thousands of local tourists in peak season.

Bai Dong

Bai Dong

The reason why we choose this destination because unlike other noisy and commercialized tourist hubs, visitors to Hai Hoa Beach enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of its stunning landscape and the fresh taste of its seafood. As it is quieter than some other beaches in the central region such as Sam Son beach, Hai Hoa is a boom for local people, the beach still possesses white sandy dunes and green, forested ranges near crystal clear blue waters.

On the first two days, we went to Bai Dong, a new beach in Thanh Hoa province, 30km from Hai Hoa. This place is not as crowded as other popular beaches. With peaceful scenery and  blue sea and white sand, the beach is still wild and naturally beautiful.

The second day was a fun-filled time for Hai Hoa beach. We swam, played football, and climbed up to the mountain. Apart from sunbathing or relaxing on the beach, drinking coconut juice, and chatting with friends over a glass of beer and savory snacks of seafood. Before dawn there is a flurry of activity that involves everyone, both young and old, after fishing boats return to their shores. Nets are gathered and washed as conversations continue, women weigh and sell fresh fish and children play cheerfully around.

At dawn, the beach is seemingly lit by a ball of fire that bounces off the ocean’s surface. Small fishing boats dock at the beach to sell fish, crab, and shrimp from their overnight catch. You can also surf the waves that surround the pristine island of Hon Me, not far away from the beach or  you can try to fish for cuttlefish at night.

In the summer morning, we did not miss the chance to catch the sunrise over the sea. Just at 5am, many people noisily call each other to wake up and run to the sea. The dawn is “dyed” a reddish purple in the horizon. It is a great feeling when you inhale the salty taste of sea and walking on the flat sand, seeing the fishing boats returning to the wharf in the early shimmering sunbeam.

Coming to Hai Hoa, you can also find Hon Me island offshore, and Soi mountain and Chay mountain in the South of the beach. Not far away from Hai Hoa, there are many other beaches, such as Hai Thuong beach, Nghi Son beach or Bai Dong beach…

We had great time together there. When leaving Hai Hoa, it is sure that we will eagerly wish for coming here again to return to the nature, and to immerse ourselves in the wild and poetic sea.

One of my favorite quotes is that FAMILY  stands for Father And Mother, I Love You. Our parents, especially mother have raised us, taken care of us and been worried for us since the day we were born. There are thousand songs, films, poems and art works which have been written to show the respect and admiration for our beloved parents. And in this month, the fifth month of the year, we are going to celebrate the special day for the special woman, our mama. Have you had any plans for the most important and beautiful woman in your life?

When I was a kid, I did not know about this day. Mother’s Day has just come to Vietnam for few years, but it has become very popular. It seems to me that everyone wants to express their love to their mothers. However, the way each person chooses is different. Some think they have to buy for their moms beautiful and expensive gifts; while some, including me, think that spending quality time with them is the most wonderful present we can give.  Doing something together, making something together or even just lying on the sand together and talking about nothing can all become sweet memories, which go with you forever. If you have not found the suitable activities to do with your mums, the list below may help.

  1. Travelling together

If possible, why don’t you travel with your mum? It will be a lot of fun, as you and your mother will have a plenty of time staying together. Travelling to somewhere also provides a new environment, so creates a new atmosphere between you guys. Then maybe, while lying on the beach under some palm trees, you can have enough courage to tell her how sorry you were when you made a mistake few years ago and how appreciated you have been when you know you have her by your side. And maybe, under the moonlight in a strange city, your mother will be comfortable, and even brave enough to tell you that she was also very sorry to accidently hurt your feeling when you were in high school. She could tell you that she has always been proud of you; even though she might speak some harsh words. Maybe…Just give each other a chance and God knows what wonderful things might happen.

  1. Inviting your mother to where you live

This choice is similar to the previous one, but it provides the more insightful view of point. This option also brings advantages to someone who has a tight working schedule and cannot have a week break to travel somewhere else.  By inviting your mother to visit you, she can have a taste of your current life. She can know the other side of you. Suddenly, she might recognize that her little Johnny has become a grownup man, who has a promising career, many wonderful friends and a healthy life style. This time, instead of your mother, who had planned and prepared for your trip, now is your time to show her how much capable and thoughtful you are.

If you are unable to take her to some tourists attractions in your city, you can book some tours for your mother, let her explore by herself. Please do not worry that you have left by her own, let’s think it different way. Why don’t you see it as an opportunity for your mother be young again, come back the time she was 20s, and enthusiastic to discover new land and make more friends. And by registering a short tour, maybe day tour, she might tell you many wonderful stories when you and you mother have dinner together. What’s a fantastic idea!

If you are currently staying and working in Indochina, which consists of  Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia ; and you are looking for some reliable travel agencies to plan some wonderful tours for your mum or both of you, maybe you can try to contact my friends. They are professional and friendly; and maybe, they can design and provide you just what you need, or maybe more than what you need. Please try by Travel Indochina Vietnam and tell me what you think!
