After the beautiful beaches of Koh Phangan (SEE ARTICLE) I have now moved to Koh Tao (SEE MAP), a tinly lovely island in the same arcipelago. The place is far from away from the crazy parties and life is quite more relaxing here. And yes, if you are not satisfied with Phangan places, you can find here yet another paradise.
Koh Phangan (SEE ARTICLE) and Koh Tao are not only incredible heavens on earth for their stunning beaches. Under the water may be even more beautiful.
Koh Phangan is stunning island full of beautiful beaches and landscapes (SEE ARTICLE). Besides, it is famous around the world for the Full Moon Party, held on his main beach onece a month during - of course - the full moon night.

Being an Emperor is such a hard life, isn't it? Hue, in the center of Vietnam, has been the capital city of the Vietnamese Empire during XVIII and XIX siecles, during the Nguyen dinasty.
The second Indochina war against the USA is one of the most famous conflict ever. Vietnam history is indeed plenty of such events. And the country still reflects there in several different places. One of the most affected part was indeed the DMZ - demilitarized zone - where several cruel battles took place.
May is a lovely girl from a tiny H'mong village near Sapa. I happened to read stories about her hosting tourists in her house, with her family, just for the sake of talking with strangers, learning some English and get some good meal in return. I eventually contacted her and decided to go and spend a night in her village. That happened to be an out-of-the-world experience.
Monkey Island is just one of the thousands available in the Halong Bay, probably one of the most knwon Vietnamese places in the world.
