Details Of Our Vietnam Trip Itinerary For Our Trip To Vietnam With Kids Weather In Vietnam In July

We were in Vietnam in July and it turned out to be the correct time. Our programs were never affected due to weather. Temperatures were hot but compared to summer in India was not an issue. Most of the travel was in AC vans, so really one did not feel the heat.

Some Highlights Of Our Vietnam Trip

We had a wonderful time while visiting the best attractions in Vietnam with kids. There were so many things to try and we made the most of our vacation.

1. Halong Bay On Seasun Cruise

2. Phong Na Ke Bang National Park: Dark & Paradise Caves

Dong Hoi to Phong Na is almost one and a half hour through the central Vietnamese plains. After a safety briefing Zing lined across the river to the dark caves. We walked barefoot through the muddy caves (almost a kilometer) in the dark with headlights and had a mud bath (like elephants and buffalos rolling in the mud). then , we canoed back and enjoyed the fun activities at the theme park.

Later we visited the Paradise Caves, a majestic creation of nature. A brief walk and climb up the slopes lead you to the cave entrance. Cave itself is A massive collection of stalactite and stalagmites of all sizes, shapes, and colors. It could have taken a million years to create such artistry. This is something extraordinary not seen in other parts of the world. Just watch nature at its best. Returned to Dong Hoi in the evening.

3. Phong Na Caves

A one hour boat (motorized canoe) ride through the serene waters of the Song Con river brings you to the cave entrance. The final boat ride ( quant poled), half a kilometer, is through the underground river. Dark except for the occasional lights from the passing boats and the floodlights in the cave. Again, a massive collection of stalactite and stalagmites of all sizes, shapes, and colors. The boat ride back to the bus, lunch at the local restaurant and back to the airport .

Caves in the Phong Na ke Bang National Park were the best. This is something totally different for those who are used to beaches, waterfalls and theme parks. These caves have been opened to the public only in the last 10 years, a marvel of mother nature.

4. Ho Chi Minh City – Saigon

We traveled through the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon. A brief stopover at the disabled war veteran’s handicraft factory. We also witnessed the effect of Napalm and agent Orange on future generations. The inlay work is of very good quality. But quality always comes at a price.

We visited the Chu Chi tunnels. This gives one an insight into the Vietcong’s underground lifestyle in the tunnels and how they fought the war against the Western forces. The ingenious booby traps and facilities built underground all show the VietCong’s resolute spirit of fighting back. Crawling through the tunnels one understands the agony of the war. Here could get to fire a real AK 47.

Locals And Hospitality In Vietnam

Vietnamese are very helpful and unassuming. A war-ravaged history, heavy tourist inflows, have not deterred them from maintaining their way of life, keeping up with their traditions and lifestyle and being a good host. This was experienced throughout our travel.

Our Personal Expenses In Vietnam

Approximately 60 USD or INR 4,000 per person per day inclusive of food, drinks, hotel, local transport, entrance fees, and guide charges. Internal airfares are extra. 25 USD or INR 1,700 per person visa fee is additional to be paid at the airport. Besides this, our Vietnam trip with kids was a private trip tailored to our needs. This was costly, but considering the limited time, personal conveniences and children in tow I think the price offered was good. One can still get cheaper packages if you opt for standard packages with no time constraints.

Shopping In Vietnam

Street and night market vendors offer cheap branded clothes (could be fake). Bargaining is a must. Disabled war veteran’s handicraft factories offer good quality (price is not cheap) inlay and hand-crafted items. Visit these factories that are normally built into the tour packages. Also, shopping in Vietnam with family was altogether a wonderful experience for all of us.

Restaurants In Vietnam

The best way to enjoy food in Vietnam is to have it in local restaurants and street food, and that’s what we did. A wide variety is available to suit all palates. Down it with local beer for the best experience. Bun cha and egg coffee at Hanoi, Seafood at Ho Chi Minh were special. Apart from this, one should definitely try Vietnamese street food.

Our Hotels In Vietnam

These were three-star categories with breakfast included. Breakfast was generally a mix of western and local. Locations were mostly in city centers so we could always go walking for food and shopping. Facilities were as shown in their website brochures.

How To Reach Vietnam

We traveled from hometown to Hanoi and return from Ho Chi Minh was using budget airlines. Apart from savings in fares, restrictions in checked-in baggage helped us travel light.

What To Pack For Vietnam

Vietnam in summer does not require any special clothes to pack. The best way to travel is with a backpack. Food and water are available in most of the destinations (Unless one has very specific food restrictions).

Vietnam Travel Tips For Future Travelers

To make the best of the time available in Vietnam, one must plan the trip factoring the air / train timings and stay places. Vietnam is a long country, almost One Thousand Six Hundred kilometers, traveling from one destination to other will take time. Most of the natural view destinations are far from cities. One should consider this to get the most from the trip

Travel companies normally suggest standard packages. This may not suit you. You must discuss many times with them to come to an optimum package to suit your interest and timings

Internal air or train tickets must be booked earlier to get the best price. Internal flights and seats to many destinations are limited, so book early

External food and liquor are not allowed on the Halong bay cruises. The cruise bar provides liquor at reasonable rates. Food served also is excellent.

Do’s & Dont’s In Vietnam

Bargaining with street vendors of local items can get good gains

If you have food restrictions, you should carry packaged or canned foods. Or you should give special requirement in the restaurants

Keep enough Vietnam Dong with you. Exchange rates at local destinations may not be attractive

Be good to tip guides and drivers

Train travel is a cheaper option but requires more time

At Phong Na Dark Caves they do not allow camera or phone. But later we came to know that they sell waterproof pouches for carrying the phones. Also, they have funny rule that women must wear bikinis only

Do your part to keep the environment clean

Our Ultimate Travel Experience: Explore Mekong Delta With Insider’S Perspective

I have to be honest, I was a little scared when I first arrived in Vietnam. I belong to the slightly older generation who never got the chance to take off and travel the world in our youth. The most exotic place I had visited before was Dubai where finding the local experiences and culture sometimes proved difficult. When my daughter packed her bags and moved to Ho Chi Minh City, I knew this would be my chance to see a bit more of the world. My husband and I decided to take leave and visit our daughter 6 months after her arrival. In this time, she had managed to get herself a job out there so we had a little free time to ourselves. Ho Chi Minh city was a little overwhelming with its constant onslaught of motorbikes and spring humidity, so we decided to take the opportunity to escape and explore one of the more peaceful ways of life Vietnam had to offer. I wanted to book a Mekong Delta tour but was put off by the idea of fighting for shade with crowds of other tourists. I also didn’t want to come all this way just to see something which had been altered and staged for tourists who had come before me. I wanted a truly local experience. To see the real way of life. I therefore decided to hire a local guide with Inspitrip. Read more: Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Go On A Mekong Delta Tour

Wandering on Mekong river without traces of any tourist, yay!

First stop: Coconut “Factory”

Our day started early. Vi picked us up from our hotel and piled us into the taxi she had arranged. After an hour and half of driving we arrived to a place where we could sample the delicious rocket-fuel also known as Vietnamese coffee and board the boat which would take us down the river. The only other people around us where working on the boat or at the coffee shop. I didn’t see any other tourists, this set the president for the rest of our truly local day. A day which stands in stark contrast to the photos I have seen from others experiences of the Mekong; a delta crowed with tourists’ boats fighting to get past each other and gawk at the ‘locals’.Our first stop was to a coconut “factory” where we saw the coconuts being de husked. I have to admit I have had a few coconuts while I have been here but naively thought they were all produced by near by palm trees, I would have never imagined there to be a coco-cola desk production system. We spoke to the woman who worked there and learn how little she was paid for the preparation of these refreshing drinks. Vi ever so gracefully gave the woman a drink to thank her for her time.

Me and Vi at the coconut workshop

We left the boat and on our journey into the coconut grove met an old local lady with a warm smile. She invited us to look around her home and was happy for us to take pictures. She wanted nothing in return, her true warmth and generosity was a pattern we would see in all the people we encountered on our tour.

Vi had somehow seemingly arranged us to be greeted by our truck driver at the end of this path. We had a great laugh when this half motorbike, half truck, decided it didn’t want to start until it had seen my husband get out and push.

Visit local broom workshop and fruit garden

Our first stop was a little factory were women were making brooms, they were happy to talk to us while they worked and allowed us to walk around and take photographs. Next was Uncle Tam’s home. Once again we were welcomed with such warmth we at once felt like we were visiting an old family member. We sat on a veranda deep in the grove and feasted on fresh fruit. There was not another tourist in sight and I can honestly say we felt like we were experiencing something truly special.

Inside the broom workshop, we had chance to talk to people and got surprised of how little they earn

Once revived we made our way to our wooden paddle boat which Vi had arrange to sit waiting for our arrival. We made our way through the towering mangroves, and by we it was mainly myself who helped Vu, the boats owner, as my husband furiously took photos of it all.

Lunch and nap like true locals

Next stop was lunch at Mrs Mai’s. Lunch was one of my first and also most memorable experiences with traditional Vietnamese food. I can still taste the fresh fish and spices now and my mouth is watering, begging me to go back. The Vietnamese like to nap after lunch so we took this opportunity to relax before setting off on the bicycles Vi had arranged.

After lunchtime is nap time and local people just love it

From the seat of my bike I could see all parts of local life which took place around the mighty river bed. When we crossed a rickety bridge and were joined by some local dogs and a pig. Music from the houses lifted through the trees to create a beat to our journey.

Ride around and visit a local school

The most memorable moment of the whole tour happened when we visited a local school along our cycle path. The children were so happy to see us, a welcome distraction from their studies. They came out onto the courtyard with us and welcomed us with such warm, wanting nothing in return.

Our day ended with our failed attempted to join one of the locals who was climbing a coconut tree. Despite a thorough demonstration from a local man, we all failed at making it further than a meter up.

Bottom Line

The whole experience was more than I could have hoped for. It surpassed my expectations and was absolutely nothing like the photos you see of a river 5-boats deep with paddle boats for tourists. Everything was arranged so seamlessly that I was astonished it could be done by just one person. I couldn’t recommend going on the Mekong delta tour with Vi more. When we returned that evening and told our daughter she immediately organised to go.

What To Pack For Thailand? Essential Things To Have Before Your Trip

You have filled your travel itinerary with day by day excursions. You have booked your flights. Your visa is a go. Now, the only task left to tackle is filling up your luggage with everything you will need while exploring the Kingdom. Whether you are travelling for one week or one year, there are several things you will need to be sure to stow away before boarding your red eye. Here, a complete guide on what to pack for Thailand.

Essential Things to Pack

When travelling to Thailand, visitors will want to only bring a small suitcase or backpack. One of the best things about visiting the Kingdom is how affordable it is to explore the country in its entirety. From the mountainous terrain in Isaan to the thousands of miles of coastline down south, even the most broke of backpackers can frequent any one of these places. Websites like AirAsia offer dirt cheap flights to popular cities around the Land of Smiles. Comfortable overnight trains make it easy to get from one region to the next. Because of this, you are going to want to pack light. That way, you avoid having to lug one too many pounds of your belongings around.

Many of the things you will need are all available at convenience stores across the country. Omit to purchase things like bug spray and some hygienic products until you arrive. That being said, here are the essential things to pack beforehand.

You are going to want to bring along a few different forms of identification in addition to your passport. For one, it is illegal in Bangkok to be without a proper form of identification. We do not recommend keeping your passport with you at all times. It is best to have at least a driver’s license or an old student ID card, just in case.

Another item worth slipping onto your carry on is an insulated water bottle. Thailand’s heat can take a toll on your hydration and have cold water when you need it is going to be a lifesaver. Visitors are also unable to drink water out of the faucet: not even Thai people take that risk. There are plenty of convenience stores with cold water bottles, however, having your own ensures you always have water and you do not have to buy so many plastic ones. There are water refill stations found throughout the country. For only ฿1, you can fill up a large bottle.

What to Pack for Girls

Those hoping to visit one of the thousands of Buddhist temples across the country should bring attire that covers both shoulders and knees. You may not be able to enter these religious sanctuaries otherwise. Thailand is scorching, as well. Be sure that the clothes you pack (in general) are light in colour and made of light materials.

What to Pack for Guys

The same rules for women apply to men: showing too much skin is notnormally accepted in Thailand. Of course, you will still see your fair share of shirtless, swimsuit rocking tourists making their way through popular destinations, especially on the islands. Try to be respectful and keep your clothes on. In addition to dressing modestly, men will normally not be allowed in temples if their shorts are too short of if they are wearing tank tops, so be sure to bring a pair of pants with you.There are normally vendors outside of major temples at the ready with cheap pants for sale for tourists who are not properly dressed.

What to Pack for a Night Out

Similarly to the Buddhist temples (but for entirely different reasons) many of Thailand’s most noteworthy clubs have strict dress codes. For women and men, sandals are not normally acceptable attire. If they are especially extravagant shoes, decked out in jewels and the like, you might get in. Otherwise, be sure to pack close-toed ones. Bouncers can be pretty particular about what visitors wear in addition to what they put on their feet. Usually, things like jeans or cargo shorts are not going to cut it at popular clubs and bars in Bangkok. Popular places with dress codes are Levels Club & Lounge and Lebua at State Tower. This is where The Hangover Part II was filmed. Visitors will either have to dress to impress or be denied access to lavish places like these.

What to Pack for the Weather

There are three major seasons in Thailand: the dry, hot, and raining season. While the seasonstechnically change, one thing remains constant: Thailand is boiling. Be sure that your clothing is light and breathable. For the most part, any sweaters, scarves, and pants should stay home. Temperatures do tend to drop in the northern regions and can get a bit chilly during the dry season. Overnight buses and trains tend to freeze out their passengers with blasting air conditioning, as well. If you plan on taking either of these, bring a light jacket and a pair of pants.

What to Pack for the Rainy Season

Get ready to get soaked. Thailand’s monsoon season is less than forgiving when it comes to staying dry. The storms come in continuous waves, and they are especially strong in southern Thailand.

Torrential downpour, however, sometimes only lasts five minutes or so before the sky clears. Other times, the rain does not let up for the entirety of a day. To stay dry, be sure to pack a raincoat of sorts. Many people will suggest you bring an umbrella. A thin, plastic raincoat is more compact in regards to packing and tends to keep you drier, however.

Be sure to pack a good pair of shoes that will not fall apart in water. The streets of Thailand tend to flood when faced with one too many raindrops. It is not uncommon to have to trudge through over a foot of water to get to where you are going, especially in the poorly draining streets of Bangkok.

Another item that may prove to be helpful during the monsoon season is waterproof mascara. If you are particular about the brand of make-up you use, stock up beforehand. Otherwise, you will have two black lines perpetually running from your eyes to your chin during the monsoon season.

What to Pack for the Cool Season

The dry season provides visitors with some of the best weather they could imagine from November to March. Sunny skies lack the otherwise sweltering heat that is common during the months of April, May, and June, otherwise known as the hot season.Temperatures tend to drop and become more bearable in the cool season. This is especially true in the evenings in the two northern regions of Thailand. While you still might come across a rainy day or two, leave all rain paraphernalia at home if you are visiting during this time. As with any season, packlight and bring a swimming suit. The dry season is as good as time as any to relax by the beach for the entirety of a trip.

Travel Then Buy

There are things that tourists may want to abstain from purchasing before travelling. It saves you room in your suitcase. These items are oftentimes much more affordable in Thailand, as well. Here, a list of items to exclude from your suitcase until you arrive.

Bug spray

Toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, toothpaste, etc.)


Socks (especially for the rainy season)

Sunglasses (check out the markets, fake brands but incredibly cheap)

Stationary (pens, paper, etc.)

Finished packing your suitcase? Now keep some basic Thai phrases so you can travel Thailand like a local!

2023] How To Eat Noodles With Chopsticks: 10 Steps (With Pictures)

1Place your first chopstick on the knuckle of your ring finger. Curl your pinky and ring finger in toward your palm and set the chopstick so that it is resting against the first knuckle on your ring finger. Then hold the end of the chopstick in the crease between your thumb and first finger. Hold the chopstick so that there is about 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5.1 cm) of chopstick sticking out between your thumb and first finger.[1] X Research source

Use your dominant hand to hold your chopsticks for the most control. Whichever hand you normally use for writing is the hand you’ll use to hold your chopsticks.

You may feel like you’ll have more control if the point of the chopstick is closer to your fingers, but the proper way to hold them is to let the pointed ends extend out far past your fingertips.

2Set the second chopstick against the knuckle of your middle finger. Curl your middle finger in toward your palm and settle the second chopstick against the first knuckle on that finger. Then hold the end between your thumb and index finger so that the two chopsticks are parallel. Keep the thick end of the chopstick about 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5.1 cm) from your fingers.[2] X Research source

If your chopsticks are crossed, you need to readjust how you’re holding them.


3Move the top chopstick and keep the bottom one stationary. Move your middle finger up and down to maneuver your chopsticks. Think of the bottom chopstick as the anchor—it stays still.[3] X Research source

If you’re at home practicing, use tape to secure the bottom chopstick so that it can’t be moved. This will help you learn the right movements to move only the top chopstick.

4Keep the bottoms of the chopsticks separate from one another. If you find that the chopsticks are becoming crossed as you eat, take a moment to readjust your position so that they are once again parallel.[4] X Research source

Be patient with yourself as you learn to properly hold and use chopsticks! It can take a lot of practice but it’ll be worth it to be able to use them whenever you need to.

Grabbing the Noodles

1Pull a small amount of noodles from the bowl with your chopsticks. When you eventually bring the noodles to your mouth, you’re going to slurp them in through a pursed mouth, so the smaller the quantity, the easier that action will be.[5] X Research source

It’s okay if you grab the noodles in the middle—it can be hard to find the “end” or “top” of multiple strands of noodles and you don’t need to spend time on that.

2Tug at the noodles until they are separate from everything else. Pull the noodles upwards and away from the rest of the dish—whether that is meat, vegetables, other noodles, or broth. If the noodles are very long (longer than your reach when your arm is lifted up over the bowl), you will just need to let it be.[6] X Research source

Eating noodles can be a little messy, especially if the dish is served in a broth. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little splattered with dripping broth.

3Dip your noodles back into the dish to get more of the flavor onto them. If you are eating a dish served in broth, dip the noodles back underneath the surface. If there is a sauce, try brushing the noodles against it.[7] X Research source

If your dish is comprised of meat and noodles, don’t try and eat these items together. Rather, focus on alternating bites of noodle with bites of meat.

4Lift the noodles and slurp them rather than placing them in your mouth. Instead of spooning the noodles into your mouth, simply form an “O” with your lips (like how you would if you were drinking coffee or hot tea) and place the end of your chopsticks with the noodles into your mouth. Then remove your chopsticks from the noodles and start slurping![8] X Research source [9] X Expert SourceThuong TanNoodle Expert Expert Interview. 28 January 2023.

Slurping noodles fast and loudly is often seen as a sign of respect and shows that you’re enjoying the dish. Also, you don’t want your dish to get cold, so the faster you go, the better.

5Use your chopsticks to lift the bottom of the noodles to your mouth. While you’re slurping, use the ends of your chopsticks to keep your noodles away from your chest. If the noodles are particularly long, you can even grab the end of the noodles with your chopsticks and lift them to your mouth.[10] X Research source

Using your chopsticks to continue guiding your noodles to your mouth can also help stop the broth or sauce from making too much of a mess.

6Use chopsticks and a soup spoon for dishes like pho. Settle the noodles into the spoon with your chopsticks rather than bringing them directly to your mouth. Follow the same practice of grabbing a small bundle of noodles and loosening them from the rest of the dish, but then gently place the noodles into the spoon and eat the noodles from there along with some broth.[11] X Research source

The great thing about knowing how to use chopsticks to eat noodles is that you’ll be well-equipped to eat your meal no matter what! Even if there isn’t a soup spoon provided, you will still have the techniques to enjoy your dish.

2023] How To Store Raw Beets: 10 Steps (With Pictures)

1Pick beets with fresh, unwilted greens. If you want to store beets and keep them fresh, you need to make sure you’re picking fresh ones in the first place. The leaves attached to the beetroot are the best indicator of freshness. If the greens on a beet are wilted, the beetroot is probably not very fresh, so pick another one instead.[3] X Research source

If you’re picking your own beets from a garden, you can wait until well into the cold season, even after the first frost, but your beets should be picked before the temperature goes down to 24 °F (−4 °C) at night. Put them somewhere cold immediately, rather than leaving them in the sun.[4] X Research source

2Avoid beets with obvious blemishes. Your beets should have unblemished skin. Look for a dark maroon colour, unless you’re picking a different variety of beets, such as the golden ones. The tail at the bottom should be intact.[5] X Research sourceAdvertisement

3Pick beets that are firm to the touch. Softness is a sign that beets are spoiling, so pick ones that are firm. If you already have beets and find they’re soft, it’s best to throw them away.

Preparing the Beets for Storage

1Trim the leaves and stem. Since leaves draw moisture from the root, removing them immediately will help to keep your beets fresh longer. So before storing your beets, you should trim them, leaving about 1 to 2 in (3 to 5 cm) of stem at the top of the root. Don’t trim the tail.[6] X Trustworthy Source Michigan State University Extension Extension program of Michigan State University focused on community outreach, education, and engagement Go to source

Beet greens are edible, so you don’t have to throw them away. They can be prepared the same way as any other greens, for instance by sautéing.[7] X Research source The greens only last in fridge up for 2 or 3 days.[8] X Research source Since they rot more quickly, they should be stored separately from the roots.

2Rub the dirt off the roots. Beets grow in the ground, and when they’re harvested they’re covered in dirt. They need to be cleaned, but not by washing, which makes them rot faster. Instead, gently rub the dirt off the root.[9] X Research source

If you do wash your beets at this point, make sure to dry them thoroughly before storing them.[10] X Research source

3Keep the beets raw and dry. Again, moisture contributes to rotting, so you should keep your beets dry if you want them to last a while. You should also store them raw, since cooked beets won’t last nearly as long.

Storing Beets in a Cold, Damp Place

1Put the beets in a perforated plastic bag. Keeping your beets in a plastic bag will prevent them from becoming soft, dry, and wrinkled in the fridge. It’s best to cut small holes in the bag so that it doesn’t trap in moisture.[11] X Research source

A bag also helps prevent any juices from staining your countertop or fridge.

2Place the beets in crisper drawer. The crisper in the refrigerator is the best place to keep beets fresh, along with your other vegetables. But if they won’t fit in the crisper, a shelf in the fridge will work.

If you’re going to use the beets within 5 days, you can leave them out at room temperature.

3Check periodically that the beets are still firm to the touch. Beets will become soft if you store them too long or don’t do it properly.[12] X Research source Check your beets periodically to make sure they’re still firm and haven’t spoiled.

If they’re stored properly, your beets should last between 1 and 3 months in the fridge.[13] X Research source But it’s still best to check them from time to time to make sure they haven’t gone soft.

4Store your beets in a root cellar if you can’t use the fridge. While storing beets in the fridge is easy and effective, you can also store them in a root cellar, or anywhere else that’s cold and moist. In this case, keep your beets inside a plastic container or cooler.

You can even pack the beets in peat moss, sand, or sawdust to help keep them fresh. The temperature where you’re storing your beets should be 32 to 40 °F (0 to 4 °C) and the humidity should be high (about 95%).[14] X Research source

“I had a glut of beets and wanted to use them (rather than waste any), so I cooked and froze some and kept some in a perforated bag in the fridge drawer. Worked a treat. Thank you.”…” more
