Some impressions of my trip to Vietnam...second part

This is the continuation of my first part of my travel report.

Here is the link to the first part

I can't describe my whole trip, it would be an endless story.
So I am going to shorten it.

After a domestic flight from Hanoi to Da Nang in central Vietnam, we visited the Marble Mountains and took a boat tour on the Hoi An River in Hoi An. The onward journey led us further over the "cloud pass" to Hue.

We visited the cities Da Nang, Hoi An, and Hue.

There we had a boat tour on the Hoi An River and visited the tombs of Emperor Tu Duc and Khai Dinh.

Along the Perfume River, we drove to the impressive 7-story Thien Mu Pagoda from the 14th century. It is the landmark of Hué, the former capital of the Nguyen dynasty. A visit to the citadel of Hué and the Dong Ba market followed.

Hai Van Pass (also called "cloud pass") Unfortunately, we did not have a clear view that day.

We had a pause at the Hai Van Pass. We enjoyed the typical Vietnamese coffee.

There I am with a few members of my travel group.

Yes, Fizzi, that's right.

Hello, bet. In some cultures, the head is the place of human spirit and soul. Touching of it is unkind.

Good to take pictures when less crowded.

Why not to touch the head?

Thanks, April.

I am going to post more about my trip.

I loved traveling around your country.

I think you read my the do's and o don'ts I mentioned to Eastanis. Could you tell me if I am right, please?

Thanks a lot for your interest in my blog and commenting on it.

I read both of your blogs and feel very nice to know a different angle of view about my country and city of Hanoi. Pity I didnt know you earlier, I can treat/guide you to some special coffee shop on the ancient quarter when I live and work. You had an amazing experiences , beautiful photos and a great journey. Congrats.

So grateful for your explanations Rose and no worries, I like your meanness ;)

Hello Estanis.

The reason why Vietnamese coffee is actually unknown is as follows: In Vietnam, there are no roasting companies that produce coffee brands directly for the foreign market.
They export only raw coffee beans.
It is then roasted in the recipient countries under the brands known there.

Keeping on making you envious will be my pleasure. Hahaha!!!
Ohhh I am mean, am I?

The Do’s when Visiting Vietnam: (just some examples)
Dress you appropriately.
Show respect at temples, don't go inside with shoes, don't wear too short addition, women should cover their shoulders.
Keep your bag and your wallet safely.
Know where you live, take a visit card of the hotel with you. It's easier to ask someone for the way or to take a taxi if you got lost.
Negotiate and get a fair price on markets.
Buy legitimate bottled water. Vietnam doesn't have what we call drinking water in Europe.
Ask before you shoot a photo from people or sights.
Keep toilet paper with you (hahaha...if you don't can be a big problem for you.)
Try local food in Vietnam and use the chopsticks correctly. (It isn't difficult and it's fun!)

And here are a few dont's

Don’t end up in jail. (LOL!)
Don’t mention always the war.
Don’t stop when crossing a road. Stopping can be more dangerous. (The traffic is terrible...impressing, how many motorcycles they have.)
Don't touch anyone's head or point out with your finger on him.

Don't wear precious jewelry. It could seduce a thief.

I might have guessed about the rice but I'd never thought there were so much coffee there, it's not usual Viet coffee at least here.

By the way I wonder if there is a do's and dont's Viet list weird for westerners haha...

Keep on making me envious :D

Well, then I have to see it instead of you, one day! :D
