Sand Dunes: Mission Failed

A dune is a mound or ridge of sand or other loose sediment formed by the wind, especially on the sea coast or in a desert. That’s the definition that I managed to find on Google. For those who are not capable of imagining how the dunes look based on my description, I will be glad to help – dunes are simply a pile of sand, a small desert that can easily be found close to the beach. Yet, dunes are not always present in coastal areas. For example, it’s not a simple task to find dunes in Indonesia, despite the amount of beaches that we have.…

War Remnant Museum (Ho Chi Minh City)

  War gives nothing, not victory and not happiness. No matter what the purpose is, war only creates new problems, with more agony, and more death, with sadness instead of happiness and peace or whatever was claimed by the side who initiated it. Visiting War Remnant Museum wasn’t on my list when I went to Vietnam. But, curiosity hit me, and so I decided to stop by the museum which is located in the heart of the capital city– Ho Chi Minh City (Sai Gon). The museum was opened on the 4th September 1975 as an exhibition house about the Vietnam War and the first Indochina War…

Mui Ne, A Coastal Fishing Village

  Mui Ne is a coastal fishing village with a long shoreline that has turned into one of the most visited destinations in southern Vietnam. Due to its location and unique landscape, Mui Ne has become an excellent choice for tourists wanting to escape from the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City for a while. It only takes about 5 hours by bus to get there. You can only take the sleeper bus as that is the rule in Vietnam – if your journey lasts more than 4-5 hours then they will recommend that you take the sleeper bus. It wasn’t like this 5 years…

Vietnamese Food: Ban Xeo and Pho

  I arrived in Tan Son Nhat airport at around 7pm. The airport wasn’t as crowded as Changi, in my opinion, Changi’s airport is something that is incomparable. However, it was such a relief that I didn’t need to line up for very long at the customs. I was feeling extremely exhausted, starving and slightly jetlagged; due to my condition, i kept blabbing to the officers in my native tongue instead of using English appropriately. After my lengthy monologue to one of the officers my response was met with a frowned and confused face; at this moment I realised that my words had been falling on deaf…

Cu Chi Tunnel — Become a Rambo in a day

Whoever knows about Viet Cong please raise your hand! I guess some of you are movie addicts, big fans of Rambo, historians or just a history lover. Regarding myself, I have known about the Viet Cong ever since I was kid. And yes, I should admit that it was from the crazy actions of ‘Rambo’ that first taught me a bit about the Viet Cong. However, most information about their history, I ‘stole’ from the internet and books. The Viet Cong was a military group with a strong political movement during the period that surrounded the Vietnam war. Some people said that the Viet Cong was a…
