My favourite place

It has to be Vietnam. From the people, to the food, to the scenery, to the cities – everything is unbelievable. One day you could be cycling to abandoned waterparks, having a mud bath, crawling the Củ Chi Tunnels or walking along the Golden Bridge, and the next you could be scaling waterfalls, driving the Hai Van Pass or watching the Vietnamese National football team on an outdoor screen in front of Ha Long Bay. Plus… there’s always a friendly dog to pet!
