Our Vietnam Travel Blogs

Over the years the Original Travel team has been to Vietnam several times. We pride ourselves on our unparalleled knowledge of the destinations we send our clients, so take a look at what our very own Original Travellers have to say about Vietnam in our travel blogs:

Great Global Bake Off

We're a (healthily) competitive lot here at Original Travel and all this recent chat about the new hosts of The Great British Bake Off got us thinking. Why just Britain? And why just baking? Cue the drawing of continental battle lines and each team putting forward their region's finest cuisine for our inaugural Great Global Bake (and Roast, Braise, Steam, Sauté, Barbecue etc) Off. OK, so the title could do with some work but we think we've got a sure-fire smash hit show on our hands (any TV producers reading this, do give us a call). Fast-forward to the final, and after some fierce competition (Australasia saw off the Caribbean in a particularly closely fought quarter-final), which two continents do you think impressed the judges? It came down to a battle royale between Asia and Europe, with (spoiler alert) Asia eventually raising the trophy. Here are the reasons why. (Permission to salivate…)

Where You've Been in 2016

At the end every year we love to take a look back at some of the amazing trips we've planned for our clients, and this year there have been some absolute stonkers. We're talking intrepid honeymoons, adventurous sabbaticals, secret beach breaks, fun-filled family getaways, cultural escapades and much, much more. We've sent people to over 100 countries so far this year (104, to be precise) and here are just a few of our favourites...

Our Top 5 Aman Resorts

Two things have become apparent over the course of this Great British Summer. Number one: the aforementioned "summer" has been deeply underwhelming; one minute we're baking in glorious sunshine and the next we're ducking for cover from torrential rain. Number two: Team GB has had an absolute stormer at the Olympics and we are positively worn out from all that staying up late, cheering and becoming emotionally invested in events no one actually understands (points race of the Omnium, anyone?). In other words, we're all in desperate need of a holiday. The thought of proper sunshine, crisp bed linen, impeccable service and total relaxation is almost too much to bear. Enter, stage left, Aman resorts, some of our absolute favourite hotels around the world and many of which are perfect for a last-minute escape to the sun. Here are a few of our favourites...

Vietnam - Top 5 Rooms With a View

I set up my 'Eddie Harrop' travel bag brand whilst living out in Saigon inspired by the diverse tropical prints I saw in daily life out there. They are all hand luggage size which makes it easy to jet set around places and are now stocked by the likes of Net-a-Porter.

Cool Destination Combos

Like a maxi dress and wedges, or jeans and a jacket, some combos just work. Behold, our favourite tailor made, two-pronged trip ideas. After all, the best things do come in pairs...

October Half Term Holidays

October half term is a fantastic time to get away with the family and catch some last minute sun before winter sets in. Here are our top luxury October half term holiday destinations, guaranteed to amaze you and your family and take your minds well and truly off the stresses at home…

80 Senses: #30 - Vietnamese Pho

The best pho, by far... There may be a few outrageously expensive hotels and helicopter trips in and amongst our favourite 80 things from around the world, but at the same time there are plenty of free, or nearly free - entries. Bar the plane ticket to get there, of course. Next up is a foodstuff that should never set you back more than a dollar, but which is one of the great sensory experiences.

Original Travel's dossier (restaurants, sights, useful tips) arrived through our letterbox before we left, and we sacked off TripAdvisor for the entire trip.
