Vietnam: Exploring Mui Ne (Day 2)

_mg_5686

My second day in Mui Ne started very early. I hired a driver for the scooter to bring me to the white sand dunes. It is 30 km away from the resort I was staying. At exactly 5 am we left the resort. It was drizzling a bit but here I were again, hoping for a glam sunrise. Continue reading Vietnam: Exploring Mui Ne (Day 2)

Vietnam: Exploring Mui Ne (Day 1)

“Once upon a time, Mui Ne was an isolated stretch of beach where pioneering travellers camped on the sand. Times have changed and it’s now a string of beach resorts, which have fused into one long coastal strip. These resorts are, for the most part, mercifully low-rise and set amid pretty gardens by the sea. The original fishing village is still here, but tourists outnumber locals these days. Mui Ne is definitely moving upmarket, as more exclusive places open their doors, complemented by swish restaurants and swanky shops, but there is still a (kite) surfer vibe to the town.” – www.lonelyplanet.com

Vietnam: Ananda Resort in Mui Ne.

“The resort was built in a unique fusion of traditional Balinese and Vietnamese architectural and design elements. The vast tropical palm tree garden ensures a peaceful stay for guests, while shopping or dining venues are just a short stroll away.” – ww.agoda.com

There are quite number of resorts to stay in Mui Ne, ranging from budget to splurge. Though some resorts have narrow beachfront due to sand erosion. I booked a garden view bungalow in Ananda Resort from Agoda with free breakfast.

Postcard: Old Lady at the Floating Market

_mg_9208

This old lady was selling fresh young coconut. She was just staying in that corner to avoid the busy river with lot of boats, both tourists and vendors. I was at the other side of the riverbank. She suddenly caught my attention while I had my brunch. I grabbed my camera and zoomed the lens to capture this image. The moment I looked at her, I got mixed emotions. That kind of moment is the reason why sometimes I travelled solo. I want to see and feel the reality of life, those ordinary things. Honestly, at that very moment, I got teary eyed. I miss my mom!

Vietnam: Bus Trip to Mui Ne in Phan Thiet Province

Got a good night sleep because of that Saigon beer. LOL. Woke up early and packed-up. I checked-out and went directly to Hanh Cafe office to claim my bus ticket and leave my things there.

Vietnam: Arriving Ho Chi Minh City! Hello Saigon!

It has been two decades since Vietnam was reunited; a remarkable progress has been done. Vietnam now is one of the stunning travel destinations in Asia.

To complete my ASEAN trip, I need to leave a footprint in this gracious and graceful country. I booked a flight thru Vietnam airlines and landed safely in Tan Son Nat International airport in Ho Chi Minh City. After doing the immigration thing, I looked for a telco store and got my Vietnamese sim card. I asked the store lady to set-up my 3G.

normannorman.com

imageimage Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach and popular lensman Raymond Saldaña have always had a great working relationship in front and behind the camera. In fact, the former could be classified as one of his great muses if not for a long-standing affiliation with Bb. Pilipinas that requires him to shoot all of the Official Candidates every year.

But in this, Raymond’s tribute to Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, he prepared his latest tribute to the Filipina who brought us much honor and pride as the country’s 3rd Miss Universe winner.

Watch now.
