Travellive 5 - 2018

travellivemagazine

Dear valued readers,
Summer is no doubt the most fun and vibrant season of the year, when you can enjoy long vacations to pristine beaches or explore nature’s magnificent beauty. It is also the perfect season for families to spend quality time together, and expand your children's views of the world by taking them to places where they can discover new things.
Travellive invites you to welcome back Mr. Harry Trung, his loving family and their little girl in their amazing 30-day journey in Cat Ba. We have also picked out a list of stunning coastal resorts for you and your family to enjoy this summer.
Summer is also the perfect time for more adventurous travelers to go on long journeys to far-flung corners of the Earth. Join two friends in their incredible cycling trip through Central Asian Tajikistan to conquer a famous moutain range known as “the roof of the world". But perhaps, the height of any mountain or the depth of any abyss is nothing compared to the vast spaces of one’s soul and heart. Follow the journey of travel blogger Huyen Chi to Phuktal, where she touched the heart of Northern India – a mysterious spiritual world hidden deep within the majestic Himalayas.
We wish you a fantastic summer.

Where We Going,

Daddy?

At the age of 70, Jean-Louis Fournier tells the story of his two disabled sons for

the first time in "Where We Going, Daddy?" and dedicates the book to them.

Both children face extremely debilitating physical and mental challenges with

one constantly asking, "Where we going, Daddy?" while the other thinks he is an engine,

and keeps saying things like, "Brmm brmm..." Imagine living that kind of life, what should

a father do? The immense power of this deeply moving story earned the author the

prestigious French Prix Fämina Award in 2008 and has been included on many bestseller

lists around the world.

Isuzu Vietnam has recently

line. The new generation

Isuzu trucks are equipped

with an optional safety kit

which includes Mobileye

- a smart advanced

driver assistance system

providing warnings for

collision prevention and

mitigation. When the

system senses dangers,

visual and auditory alarms

will alert the driver so

that they can handle the

situations and reduce the

risk of traffic accidents.

With improved features,

prices for the new trucks

have increased 5-12%

interview

* You have always chosen to play your own game.

Do you feel alone being a trendsetter?

My decision is not participating in Fashion

Week so people can see that my brand is not

influenced by any organization. I have created

my own collections, organized my own catwalk

shows, and everything else is simply a halo

effect. I have never felt the need to depend on

any brand, label, or stage to promote myself. I

love being a trendsetter and I am happy with

my solitariness. As you can see, for the past 10

years, the trends I've created that put a deep

impact in the fashion world and I truly embrace

the bold steps that I took. What matters is how

much effort you put into your creativity.

A BEHIND THE SCENES STORY OF THE

HOTTEST FASHION SHOW OF SUMMER 2018.

"Once beauty is based on the exchange of benefits, it

loses its value." The life of designer Do Manh Cuong

has always been a "mystery", and he is determined

to continue to keep it hidden from the eyes of the

public. If there is something he never shies away from

however, it's dialogue about beauty.

The inevitable success of being a

trendsetter

* For those who love to dress in your designs,

what kind of statement are they making about

themselves? And do the messages they want to

convey change over time?

My clients represent a huge part of my

personality. From Diem My, Ngo Thanh Van,

Ha Kieu Anh, to Linh Nga, Giang My and

Ha Tang, they themselves are a manifesto

of beauty. They have never spoken about

what it means to be beautiful, and neither

have my designs tried to convey that. I want

to avoid ostentatiousness at all cost. A design

piece is timeless or not, it depends on others'

perception, and of course, my strong personal

work ethics and deep understanding of what it

takes to thrive in this competitive industry and

leave a mark, play an essential role.

* Resorts are becoming a popular show venue for

collections. Is it a trend, an intent, or is it simply

a partnership?

For me, it is more of a personal choice than

a trend. If it's a trend, you have to be able to

find many others who are doing the same

thing, but I'm pretty sure that no one else has

traveled down that path. I'm still the first and

the only fashion designer in Vietnam to have

been able to pull it off.

Fashion is a concept related to beauty, but

once beauty is based on the exchange of

benefits, it loses its value. You can see that in

my recent shows, no brands or organizations

had much impact on my work. Few people are


Do Manh Cuong

I AM HAPPY WITH MY

SOLITARINESS.

Text: Dam Vu

aware of what you have to do in order to

protect your brand reputation. My Spring -

Summer 2018 collectin will be taken place

at the Laguna Lang Co, simply because I've

noticed an opportunity to do something

different this time.

* If it is your intent, did you draw inspiration

from the resort or this particular region?

I came to Laguna Lang Co with an intent to

gain a deeper insight into the history and

cultural values of this central land, so yes,

you will see some of that in my designs, but

I am not able to go into more details before

the show. It will be a subtle blend, totally not

forced, between traditional values and the

beauty of modern fashion.

* Did your inspiration come from the sea or the

mountains? Which one did you choose?

You shouldn't be choosing one or the other.

All natural wonders have their own unique

beauty, and we are lucky to have them. Most

of the designs from my collections are created

based on my feelings and emotions, and my

inspiration can come from the smallest in

life. I never want to associate them with any

particular concept. That is not how I work.

* You rather spend time with your friends or

your family?

A vacation is most ideal when you feel happy

and at peace in the company you are with.

Travelling with friends always brings me the

most fun experiences, while being with my

family there's always a sense of warmth, love,

and sweet memories to reminisce on, and

especially, your family always treats you like

a child no matter how old you are. [laugh].

Being a father has taken me on a special

emotional journey. I am still learning

everyday to become a better person and better

father. From being a bold, impulsive, and

straightforward person in the fashion world,

there's now a sense of maturity, seriousness,

and calm in me that I had never had before.

The two seemingly opposite personalities are

co-existing in the same person.

* People know about your muses, is there any

monster in your closet? Is being creative a

pressure? How do you relax and how do you

escape?

Since my collections are always open for sale,

sometimes they are even "sold out" before

they get on the stage. It has always been

a challenge for me and my team to ensure

that we produce enough outfits for both the

models and the after-show sale. It can be

incredibly stressful to the last minute.

I'm happy that I have been able to gain public

attention for my work, but one is never free

from negative feedback, which one must be

ready to face. As long as they are constructive,

I'm willing to take it as a lesson. But if they

are ignorant personal attacks, I would not

have it. The word "escape" doesn't exist in

my vocabulary. The more you try to escape,

the more it reveals that you don't have what it

takes to take on the world, and certainly, you

can't become a trendsetter.

Model Vo Hoang Yen - Vedette of the show

I have a clear idea of the kind of women who I want to be seen in my

designs: the beautiful, talented, smart, and sharp kind. And fashion is a

huge part of their personality.

The romantic Banyan Tree Lang Co at night

The exclusive 2018 Spring - Summer collection by Do Manh Cuong is to be held at 5 pm on

May 26 at the golf course of the world-class integrated resort Laguna Lang Co (Hue), which covers an

area of 280 ha, and is surrounded by a 3 km coastal stretch in Chan May Economic Zone with views of

the East Sea.

Lang Co, famous for its pristine beaches and incredible natural sceneries, is located on the Road of

Heritage Sites in Central Vietnam that links Vietnam's World Heritage Sites together.

Besides creating amazing collections, Do Manh Cuong is very picky when it comes to his show venues,

and, thanks to that, he has enhanced his reputation in the Vietnamese fashion industry. Laguna Lang Co

has been chosen as his show venue this year. "King Khai Dinh used to choose Lang Co for his heavenly

retreat. Undoubtedly, the natural and magnificent beauty of this destination has been well preserved to

this day, allowing you to escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world to find peace, comfort, and

inner happiness here", shared Do Manh Cuong.

For this year's collection, Do Manh Cuong's 50 models and about 200 VIP guests are to be swept away

to the stunning location during the 3-day and 2-night event. This event is a remarkable milestone not

only for the successful career of fashion designer Do Manh Cuong but also for the 5 th anniversary of the

development of Laguna Lang Co.

With the two prior

journeys that we took,

we visited many different

places, and were constantly

on the go, and thus needed

lightweight luggage.This

time however with only

one destination in mind

and completely different

living conditions, we

wanted to be more than

well-prepared.

My childhood was spent

running wild among

the fields of rice plant

stumps after the

harvest season, playing

soccer with the local kids under

heavy afternoon rains, or trying to

catch fish in the rice fields. Those

are the most beautiful memories

that I have of my childhood. There

is nothing more comforting than

hearing the sound of children'

laughing, enjoying vast natural

space along with the sun and rain,

and the sound of the frogs among

bamboo trees near the pond close

to our home. It would be a shame

if our little girl missed out on such

experiences, so we took Oc again

on yet another long trip with us

to help her explore the beautiful

nature around her.

By the end of February, I had

traveled alone to Cat Ba National

Park to do a site check, was

provided helpful information

by the park's enthusiastic

management staff, and assured

that it would be an amazing

learning experience for Oc.

When I returned to Hanoi, my

whole family was excited, and

could not wait to embark on the

trip. We had two weeks to prepare

everything, and since this trip

was a little different from the two

that we took where we visited

many different places and were

constantly on the go and thus

needed lightweight luggage, this

time, with only one destination

in mind and completely different

living conditions, we wanted to be

more than well-prepared.

Our travel items included

climbing sticks, lightweight bags,

wind-proof jackets, trekking

shoes, flashlights, headlamps, a

GPS device, a compass, and a pair

of binoculars, and a magnifying

glass. Everything was prepared

with the sole intention of letting

Oc learn and have fun while

exploring the natural world.

The story of the forest

Our first days in Cat Ba National

Park were blessed with beautiful

weather that allowed us to

enjoy the sun, moon, stars, and

birds singing every morning

throughout the forest. Everyday

we woke up to a stunning scene

of lush forests, and fragrant

flowers, as well as clean, fresh air.

The mountains in front of our

eyes were painted yellow with the

color of the sun, while the sky was

filled with all kinds of birds flying

by. We were simply immersed in

the most pleasant and peaceful

atmosphere imaginable.

Trekking in the forest was a new

experience for the whole family,

even for me. I was not sure if Oc

was ready for it, even though she

had traveled everywhere with us.

She is only 3 years old after all,

and trekking in the forest requires

strength and perseverance.

On our first day, I took Oc for

a short trek into the forest. We

did not go on the main trekking

route, and instead followed a

small trail that led to the forest.

It was about 600 m from where

we stayed, and as soon as we

completed the trail, we found

ourselves lost in an incredible

world of trees, birds, and the

sound of nature.

We sprayed mosquito repellant

on Oc to prevent her from getting

bitten, but mosquitoes and bees

still circled around us. Oc got

to see many new things during

her first day in the forest, from

ants crawling under the brown

carpet of leaves on the ground,

to termites making a nest in a

tree trunk, to colorful bugs which

could be spotted under the leaves,

as well as all kinds of different

birds and butterflies flying from

one branch to another while the

sun was piercing through the

lush forest.

Oc found a small branch with

flowers, and enjoyed blowing the

petals away. The whole family

continued to follow the small

trail into the forest. My wife

suddenly started singing, and Oc

sang along cheerfully with her

mother, while I turned on the

GPS to navigate my way around,

and mark important spots. My

3G connection was weak, and

I was not sure if I could trust

my Google Map since it might

not have been accurate anyway.

It is very difficult to determine

exactly where you are when you

are standing in the middle of the

forest, and easy to panic if you are

lost. I felt much more confident

taking the GPS with me, so that

we knew where we were and

where we were headed.

Oc was excited to see, hear,

and experience so many new

things, although she had yet to

understand everything. I gave

her the compass to carry, along

with the binoculars on her neck,

a trekking stick in her hand, and

a hat to wear. Oc even played with

my Garmin GPS for a while until

she was bored, and moved on to

playing with her binoculars. We

wanted her to get familiar with

the items, even though she had

little knowledge of their purposes.

Oc became used to trekking, and

we went on further routes. One

particularly long trek was to Ao

Ech, where we had to split the

distance into shorter trails. We

completed the Forest Education

Trail, and passed the May Bau

Peak. The trail leading to Ao

Ech is picturesque whenever the

sun pierces through the forest,

creating a breathtaking scene,

the kind that you often only see

in movies. The terrain was flat at

the beginning of the trail, but the

later part was made up of steep

slopes and cliffs that required

more intense climbing and was a

lot more challenging.

Trekking is a task that often requires adults to have strength,

endurance, and some degree of physical conditioning. With

children, it is a different story. One kilometer of climbing

equals a 3 km walk on flat terrain, so we had to sing to Oc

to motivate her. She mostly walked by herself, except for

some parts where she held our hands, or needed to be lifted or held. With

children, each day gives a different experience. On a normal day, she would

get very excited and could walk long distances, but on a different day, she

would refuse to walk by herself, and wanted to be held instead. Oc is older

this year, but still very much a little girl. We encountered countless colorful

butterflies, mushrooms, and huge red ants on our way to Ao Ech. The forest

is such a great world with so many things to explore for Oc.

We stayed at a villa in Cat Ba National Park where we were surrounded

with lush mountains and forests. From here, you can trek along a number

of trails into the forest. To the north is Gia Luan Commune where you

cross over to Quang Ninh, to the west is Phu Long Commune, well-known

for its mangrove forests, and to the southeast is the town.

As soon as the sun sunk behind the far away mountains, everything

became pitch black, and the sound of birds, monkeys, and night insects

echoed from afar. We quickly trekked back to the villa with Oc holding the

flashflight to show us the way. Up in the sky were countless stars lighting

the night forest.

The story of the moon, stars and telescope

We were lucky to experience the moon at its peak during our first nights.

The full moon lit up the sky with its magical light, and its beautiful

presence was felt even when we were inside the room. Oc loved the

experience.

We opened all the windows to let the light in, and only closed them when

we went to bed, but still we kept the curtains open. If we had to, we could

have easily slept under this beautiful starry sky. The moonlight spread over

the entire villa and the surrounding forest. We could hear the sound of

birds, crickets, and insects clearly throughout the nights. Sometimes the

glistening stars were spotted from our beds. Oc loved to sing the North Star

song, "North star, north star, are you near or are you far?" before she went

to bed. Her favorite thing to do was to assign the stars, one for her, one for

me and one for her mother.

We brought out our telescope, binoculars, and camera during our first

nights to try to capture the breathtaking beauty of the moon. It was

my first time getting the telescope out, and putting it together was no

Travel with children in the forest

ñ Bring insect repellents, a first

aid kit, some basic medicines

or specific medications for your

children.

ñ Bring a climbing stick, trekking

shoes, and a good flashlight to

ensure the family has the safest

and most enjoyable experience.

The children can have their own

climbing sticks to help them

balance when going long distances

or when climbing though this isn't

necessary. Bring along items such

as GPS, binoculars, and telescope

for a more fun experience.

ñ Wear a hat with a neck flap,

sunglasses, and sunscreen.

ñ Bring some snacks for your

children to eat along the way.

ñ Bring plenty of water for the

whole family.

ñ Tell your children which plant

is safe to touch and which plant

is not. The same goes with the

insects. There are many kinds

of toxic mushrooms, plants, and

flowers in the forest. It is best to

advise your children not to touch

or eat anything while in the forest.

ñ Teach your children about the

natural world, the forest, the sea,

the moon, and the stars.

ñ Remind your children not to

litter in the forest, make a fire, or

damage any plants to protect the

environment.


easy task since it came in with

many different parts. It took me

forever to read the instruction

and assemble the telescope. Oc's

mother came to my aid, while

Oc played with different screws,

and lenses. It took me almost a

day to set up the tent and get the

telescope together, yet some parts

still remained unfitted as I had no

idea where to place them.

Oc had her own binoculars, a

small one, which works perfectly

fine, while we had a bigger pair

of binoculars. It was Oc's first

time looking at things through

the binoculars, and she loved it.

I helped her adjust the lenses for

sharper images. At night, when

the sky is clear, is when we used

the binoculars to watch thousands

of bright stars of different sizes. It

was a truly spectacular sight.

The story of the insects

We as adults often prefer the

convenience and comfort that

big cities provide, but to young

children, being in nature with the

opportunity to explore seems to

make them the happiest.

The forest is home to many

different types of insects, and we

encountered many both at the villa

and on our trails. I brought along

a container made of transparent

plastic that has air holes on one

side, all equipped with a neck

strap, a hand lens, and an insect

tweezer. Oc was very happy that

her daddy bought her an insect

container to study live insects.

We caught a big mantis on our

first day in the forest. After placing

it in the container, we observed

the mantis together. We used

both our eyes and the hand lens

to watch the mantis in close up.

Oc could not keep her eyes away

from the mantis. The next day, we

added other insects including a

grasshopper, a longhorn beetle, and

a butterfly to our little container.

We later also found a bee.

The box turned into Oc's own world

of insects, and she was very fond

of it. Despite the little knowledge

she had about insects, she enjoyed

studying them nevertheless. Oc's

friends, the children of other

vacations, who she met in the forest

all wanted to take turns to have a

look at Oc's amazing insect box.

We also found many house lizards

inside the villa, whom Oc loved

saying hello to in the evening, and

sometimes eve whispered to them,

"Do not be scared, I'm not a lion."

Additional information

Get there

ñ You can take a direct Daichi Group bus

from the Old Quarter in Hanoi to Cat Ba

National Park or Cat Ba Town for only

200,000 VND/person. If you want to travel

by car, first drive from Hanoi to Hai Phong,

then continue on to the sea bridge to cross

Cat Hai Island to the Got ferry station. From

here, it takes about 10 minutes to get to Cai

Vieng ferry station. From Cai Vieng, drive

for about 10 km to the Cat Ba National

Park. Total travel time is about 3.5 hours to

4 hours. Please note that the ferry runs on

even hours, so get to the ferry on time to

avoid waiting.

Stay

ñ You can find many hotels to stay in Cat

Ba Town for an affordable rate. But to

truly experience the forest, you should

choose to stay at the villa in Cat Ba National

Park. Contact the park management for

reservations.

Eat

ñ There are many dining options in town,

but if you stay at the villa in the park, their

communal cafeteria is the most convenient

option. If you go further for about 1.2

km, you can find a restaurant at Hoi Lake

Farmstay or at the 24rest Ecologic near

Trung Trang Cave.

Itinerary

ñ We chose to spend a whole month here,

but you could spend at least a week. If you

have limited time, arrange at least four or

five days for the children to enjoy the trip.

Cost

ñ A villa at the park costs between 400,000

to 1,000,000 VND depending on the season.

In addition to the villa option, you can stay

at their communal house for a lower rate.

It costs 200,000 VND/person for a Daichi

a bus ride from Hanoi to Cat Ba National

Park (if your child can sit on your laps, it is

usually free). A meal at the National Park

costs around 50,000 VND/person, while at

other restaurants in the area, it is around

100,000 VND/person. If you eat in town,

the cost can be higher ranging from 200,000

- 400,000 VND for a family of 2 adults and

1 child. Admission tickets to enter Ngu Lam

Peak, Ao Ech, and Trung Trang Cave cost

40,000 VND/person each. If you are a family

of 2 adults and 1 child, the total cost for a

4-day and 3-night journey is about 4,000,000

- 5,000,000 VND.

When to go

ñ You can visit Cat Ba National Park any

time since there is always something

interesting for you and your family to

explore, but summer time is an ideal time.

Cat Ba is cooler during other seasons, so

warm clothing is essential for the children.

Summer is also the peak season, and

services may be overloaded.

The story of the sea

Cat Ba is an island surrounded

by many other small islands.

After the jungle trip, we took Oc

back to town, and went to the

white sandy Cat Co 3 Beach. We

had both cool breezy days, and

beautiful sunny days. Regardless

of the weather, Oc loved

spending time near the sea.

Oc was bolder than on previous

trips, and was no longer afraid

of the water. On days when

the water was colder, Oc still

headed to the sea, jumped into

it, and played there until she

got tired. Her fun activities

include throwing stones into the

sea, crawling across the sandy

beach like a turtle, building

sand castles, and getting her feet

buried in the sand.

We hired a motorbike to explore

around the island, and ended

up finding a beautiful secluded

beach located in Hien Hao

Commune, close to the junction

where a coastal road takes you

to town and one takes you to the

Cat Ba National Park.

We decided to bring our things

there to camp. While her mother

got her book out to read, Oc and

I did some fun activites together.

We went to find dry branches to

make a fire, catch sea snails on

the rocks, and look for crabs on

the beach. The beach is a large

mudflat, where the tide recedes

early in the morning leaving

many different marine

species stranded on shore. We

also played in the mud. It was

Oc's first time playing in the

mud, and she absolutely loved

it. We later went to find all

different kinds of shells for Oc

to collect. It was important to me

to teach Oc about the worlds of

natural life.


Oc's story

When we first arrived Cat Ba, Oc was

a plump and pale little girl who

was afraid of worms, geckos, and

bees. After a month in the forest,

Oc became a lot tougher, started to

enjoy life in the forest, became familiar with the

insects, and got to know everyone at the park.

Our 30-day trip to Cat Ba National Park was

an unforgettable experience for Oc, and her

childhood memory made special by it. We know

that her memories of the forest, the sound of the

bees, the calls of the tokay geckos, house lizards

at night, and the sound of the forest will live on

until she becomes an adult.

We accomplished most of the goals we had set

before the trip for Oc from camping, to trekking

on her own in the forest, to climbing mountains,

to watching the moon and the stars, and playing

in the sea. Oc got to experience nature in a way

that most city kids nowadays seldom have the

opportunity to. She has learnt so many things

without knowing that she was learning.

Oc also had a chance to practice her English

during the trip as she met kids from many

different countries. Oc was able to greet, talk, and

chat with her new friends without any hesitation.

The whole family returned to Hanoi, and while

we are back at work, we are already planning for

the family's next trip, and looking for a Chinese

tutor for Oc. Our next journey which is likely to

be at the end of the year, will include Mongolia,

China, and Japan - another long trip of Oc to

discover the northeast Asia.

Wheretothismonth

From immersing in the lush

green water of Lang Co Bay, to

cloud hunting in the city of Dalat,

to witnessing incredible White

Nights in Russia, to experiencing a

cold summer in Australia, or taking

a leisurely stroll around Ireland on

warm sunny days, those are the

things you should include in your

travel plans this June. Here is a list

of 6 amazing destinations Travellive

has come up with for you!

Text: Bao Khuyen - Photos: Many photographers

VISIT JADE GREEN LANG CO

Lang Co is a township

situated between

Danang and Hue

with the scenic Hai

Van Pass to the south and Phu

Gia Pass to the north. Thanks

to its unique location, Lang

Co is surrounded by majestic

mountains and crystal clear

water, making it a site of an

incredible natural beauty. Lang

Co Beach is one of the few

gulfs that has jade green water

in Vietnam. The destination

is perfect to visit in summer,

though be prepared to be

blown away by its breathtaking

sceneries. The weather is

temperate, cool, and not too

hot during summer. The most

ideal times to explore Lang Co

is from April through to July,

just before the start of the rainy

season.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

- Get there: From Danang or Hue you can

travel by bus, train, or even motorbike.

- Eat: Try the popular "b∏nh canh ch∂

cua" (crab cake soup), "bÛn riu cua cµng

b„c v·" (crab noodle soup), and "mæm

s" (fermented clam sauce) in Lang Co, in

addition to a wide variety of fresh seafoods.

6 must-

VISIT DESTINATIONS THIS JUNE

- Tip: Spend 3 days for your stay in Lang Co

to visit nearby attractions such as Lap An

Lake, Hai Van Pass, Bach Ma National Park,

Hue Imperial Citadel, and Khai Dinh Tomb.

LOST IN THE MAZE OF TEA HILLS

Located in the northeast

region of Vietnam, Thai

Nguyen provides a charming

landscape of lush tea hills and

picturesque rivers. The tea harvest

season in Thai Nguyen usually

starts in May and June - the best

time for blooming tea buds, and the

most beautiful season for visitors to

enjoy with amazing green carpets

of tea hills and cool breezy weather.

During this season, the incredible

landscapes of Thai Nguyen are

simply picture-perfect.

Visitors can watch local women pick

the tea leaves, discover traditional

and modern methods of tea

production, and experience the daily

life of the locals.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

- Get there: You can travel by bus or motorbike

to Thai Nguyen since it is located quite close to

Noi Bai Airport - Hanoi.

- Eat: Bo Dau rice cake, Dinh Hoa bamboo rice,

"b∏nh cooc m" of the ethinic Tay, and aromatic

Thai Nguyen tea are a must-try.

- Tip: Spend at least 3 days in Thai Nguyen to

explore the process of tea production or make

it a retreat holiday. Also visit the nearby beautiful

Nui Coc Lake.

DALAT - CLOUD HUNTING SEASON

Known as "the city of mist", Dalat is

often covered in mist all year round

with summer being the only exception,

especially in June, when the mist

starts to disappear and the clouds take

over the region's lush mountains.

To go "clound hunting", rising early

is essential to catch a glimpse of the

beautiful white clouds before the sun

goes up.

Dalat in the early morning is chilly,

and is the perfect time for you to relax,

watch the clouds passing by, and wait

for the first sun rays of the day to

appear. The clouds are, if not spread out

like a long piece of white silk, rolled into

layers of waves drifting amid the air.

Dalat is a truly romantic city to visit this

June with your loved one.

When going "cloud hunting" in the

mountains, you can find the chance to

stand above the clouds as they drape

over trees, and mountains and cut

through the hills. When in Dalat, take

the opportunity to visit Cu Lan Village,

Dat Set Village, Chicken Church, and

the popular Windmills Cafä.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

- Get there: You can travel by airplane, train, or bus

to Dalat since it is a popular tourist destination only

300km from Ho Chi Minh City.

- Eat: Drink a glass of hot soy milk before going cloud

hunting to keep yourself warm. You should also try

b∏nh ≠Ìt lng gµ (chicken giblet salad), b∏nh mÏ

x›u mπi (meatball sandwich), and delicious avocado

ice-cream.

- Tip: Dalat is a small town, so spending 3 days to

enjoy the fresh air is enough. You can watch the

clouds on tea hills, visit Trai Mat, Suoi Vang Lake, and

Tiger's Cave Waterfall.

RUSSIA - ADMIRE THE ENCHANTING SKY OF

WHITE NIGHTS

The "White Nights" is a very unique

natural phenomenon occuring from

May to mid-July in Russia, where

tourists often flock to this far north

country to enjoy the amazingly bright

night sky with seemingly round-theclock

daylight. During this period, the

sun goes down at 11 pm, and daylight

lasts almost 19 hours. St. Petersburg

and Moscow are the two places you

can see the White Nights most clearly.

In St. Peterburg, the White Nights

start from June 11 to July 2 annually.

During those days, people often

gather at the squares or stay up the


whole night to enjoy the enchanting

scene of the city when the sky turns

to a dreamy milky color, or light

pink, or brilliant yellow. Go to the

Red Square and St. Basil's Cathedral

in Moscow to have an unforgettable

experience.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

- Get there: Direct flights are available from

Vietnam to Moscow and St. Petersburg.

- Eat: Try Russian dumplings Pelmeni and stuffed

buns Pirozhki for an amazing culinary experience.

- Tip: You should spend from 10 days to 2

weeks to explore the wonderful country of

Russia since it is rich with famous architectural

works from the Peterhof Palace, to the

Catherine Palace, to the Cathedral of Christ the

Saviour, and the Red Square.

AUSTRALIA - EXPERIENCE A COLD SUMMER

Located in the southern hemisphere,

Australia is the sixth largest country

in the world with a climate very

unique and different to other parts

of the world. Winter here usually

begins in June and lasts through

to August. While it is summer in

Vietnam, Australia is experiencing

colder months, and is preparing for

its winter festivals.

To enjoy colder weather this

summer holiday with lots of fun

activities, visit the state of Victoria

and its capital, Melbourne, where

you can find hundreds of beautiful

snow-covered ski trails. Do not forget

to visit Mount Buller resort town for

an incredible snow boarding and

skiing experience.

You can also take part in unique

arts events from the Alpine Winter

Festival, to the Alittle Night Music

at the Sydney Opera House, or visit

the Melbourne Museum. For history

lovers, do visit the St. Patrick's

Cathedral in Melbourne with

splendid Gothic style architecture

that attracts a large number of

international visitors.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

- Get there: Direct flights to Melbourne are

available from Ho Chi Minh City. Most other flights

transit in either Singapore or Sydney.

- Eat: Try delicious Australian beer during your

winter days in Australia. But be warned, it's

typically much stronger than Vietnamese beer.

- Tip: You can spend a week for this trip. If you

like shopping, this is also the best time to bring

home quality items at an affordable price from

popular shopping streets such as Chapel Street

and Auckland Street in Victoria.

IRELAND - VISIT THE "ANCIENT PEARL" OF

WESTERN EUROPE

If Ireland is a destination listed in

your plan, late summer is the best

time to visit this beautiful country.

The rainy season in Ireland often

lasts for a long time with fog

covering most major cities, but

the weather starts to clear and get

warmer in June, making it the

perfect time for visitors to explore

ancient castles and buildings,

and enjoy lush pastures everywhere

you go.

Despite not having the lively

atmosphere of an industrial nation,

Ireland nevertheless possesses a

mysterious charm that has enticed

international travelers again and

again. Spend an extra few days on

your trip to visit the Blarney Castle

and Ashford Castle, wander

around the alleys, visit museums in

Dublin, or the Cliffs of Moher for

stunning views.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

- Get there: Direct flights to Ireland from Vietnam

are not yet available, but you can transit in the UK

before flying to Dublin.

- Eat: Irish cuisine is very unique. You should try

traditional Irish potato pancake Boxty, and Coddle,

an interesting Irish dish that uses up leftovers.

- Tip: Ireland is not part of the Schengen Area, so

you must apply for a separate visa when entering

the country. Ireland does not have subway, but

you can travel by train, tram, and bus. You should

spend at least a week in Ireland to experience "the

country with the best quality living in the world".

Keep in mind though that people drive on the

opposite side of the road, so be sure to look both

ways when crossing streets.

of all ages including the Giant Loop, where passengers are constantly

taken for 360 degree spins in a circular rail and hung up in the air

while upside down. Try your luck with the Gyro Drop, where you

experience shocking freefalls from 70 meters reaching the speed

of 100 km/h. If you travel with young children, try more kid-friendly

activities such as the Camelot Carrousel or get on the Aeronaut

Balloon Ride for amazing views of the park from high above.

Get there: Take the Seoul Subway to Jamsil Station (Seoul Subway Line

2), the Lotte World is directly connected to the station * Eat: BBQ Lotte

World Restaurant is one of the most popular places to eat at the park.

Do visit the nearby Lotte World City Shopping Center for a fun family

shopping experience * Tip: For a different experience, take your family to

Korea's largest indoor aquarium, the Lotte World Aquarium. 3

rare marine species. Here, you can come into close contact with sea

lions, walruses, and emperor penguins, or learn about the life of the

Arctic Wolf at the park's exhibition. You can also visit the amazing

Grand Aquarium to see 5,000 marine animals. The park also features

adventurous rides such as the Hair Raiser roller coaster which

rotates 360 degrees and drops at 90 degree angle to give you an

unforgettable experience.

Get there: A direct bus to the park is available from the city center * Eat:

There are many fast food restaurants in the park. You can choose to eat

hotdogs, fried chickens, pastas, and even Hong Kong style grilled dishes *

Tip: Hong Kong people have a habit of sleeping in, so Ocean Park Hong

Kong is only open from 10 am. If you are an early riser, get there early and

it may save you from the incredibly long queues.

Tokyo Disneyland - Japan

Tokyo Disneyland is one of the five largest theme parks in the

world with a total area of over 460,000 m 2 . The park features

seven themed areas with over 40 attractions. Right at the main

entrance is the huge World Bazaar shopping area. The Magical

Cinderella Castle, Mickey's House, Donald Duck's Boat, and

Chip In Dale's Treehouse can all be found at the center of the

park, and are the kids' most favorite areas to be sure.

You can also take part in Star Wars or Buzz Lightyear Astro

Blasters from Toy Story games for an exciting experience.

Another fun activity that should not be missed while you are

here is the classic Disney attraction Big Thunder Mountain,

where you go on a wild runaway train ride that allows you to

enjoy amazing views of the Westernland.

Get there: You can travel by bus, taxi, train, or subway to get to

Tokyo Disneyland * Eat: At the Restaurant Hokusai you can find

many authentic Japanese dishes from Chirashi Don (sushin in a

bowl) to Maple Leaf Tempura * Tip: The queues can be extremely

long, so be patient while lining up for the games. Try not to miss any

activities that you want to partake in.

Jammu & Kashmir state is often referred to as the "crown of India" due to its geographical location

and its majestic beauty. The Eastern half of J&K state is home to the wild and enigmatic mountains

of Ladakh. Tucked away in the imposing Himalayas is the ancient Phuktal monastery, the spiritual

center of these mountains and our destination on this arduous trip.

Into the wild in Zanskar

Upon arrival in Zanskar, I felt

immersed in its picturesque

landscape of high

mountains and the powerful

Suru valley. Zanskar is

part of Ladakh, or little

Tibet, and it belongs to Jammu &

Kashmir (J&K); the western part of

the state reaches Pakistan and the

eastern and northern parts border

Tibet. J&K once captured the heart

of an Indian king, who dubbed

the land "paradise on Earth". J&K

encompasses the gentle beauty of its

deep blue lake, it is as stunning as

its glaciers and snowy Himalayas,

it is wild as the roaring river, as

quiet as the monastery of the slopes,

and just as romantic as the valleys

concealed in golden leaves.

Departing from Leh, capital of the

Ladakh region, half of my journey

had already passed when I arrived in

Zanskar. Leh is about 220 km and a

seven-hour ride from Kargil, gateway

to Zanskar. After staying the night

in Kargil, we made another twelvehour

trip on a 240 km mountain

road arriving in Padum.

Up to the high valley,

Padum

Padum lies deep within the pristine

Zanskar region of India and is a

small, secluded town located near

the confluence of the Doda Fork,

Tsarap and Zanskar rivers, in the

basin 3,600 m above sea level,

surrounded by mountain peaks

where time has left them scarred

with ice and wind.

Padum is located in the heart of

Zanskar, with a population near

1,000 people. The inhabitants are

primarily Buddhists; however, similar

to Kargil, Padum is also under the

control of Sunni Muslims. Here,

Buddhism and Islam exist in parallel.

Visa

ñ You can apply for Indian visa at the

embassy in Hanoi or make an e-visa

at the embassy's website at www.

indianonlinevisas.org.

Itinerary

ñ From Vietnam there are many flights to

New Delhi, the capital of India. From here,

you can fly Indian domestic carriers to

Srinagar or Leh, two major cities of Jammu

& Kashmir. From these two major cities,

there are a number of tour operators

providing hotel services and driver

assistance, bringing you to Anmu village

(passing through Padum).

Staying

ñ Ladakh's major cities have many

guesthouses and hotels, with hot and

cold water. The tour companies will

give you the list to choose from, the

quality is proportional to the price of

each tour. Private accommodation in

Phuktal is geographically isolated and lacks

communication facilities, so reservations

can not be made. Room rates INR 1000

(about 15 USD per person per night). If

there is no room upon arrival, you can go

to monastery and ask for a place to sleep.

The two nearest villages to the monastery

are Cha and Purney villages.

TRAVELLIVE

The town of Padum is named

after Padmasambhava, the

Lotus-Born, one of two monks

who spread Indian Buddhism to

Tibet. Through its introduction

to Tibet, Indian Buddhism has

become interwoven with the ancient Bӧn

religion of the Tibetan people, forming

a distinct Tibetan Buddhism that

encompasses a magical flair and divine

spirituality. Tibetan Buddhism followed

the Tibetan immigrants back to Ladakh.

Taking its influence from Tibet, the

Buddhism of Ladakh follows two main

branches, the Drugpa and the Gelugpa.

The Zanskar region is no exception.

We stayed in Padum a few days to visit

nearby villages and monasteries, to enjoy

the pure and peaceful atmosphere of

Zanskar before starting our trekking

journey to Phuktal. The fatigue from

our long trip melted away at the sight of

the thousand year old monastery door,

veiled on the cliff. In front of me now

is a vast space. Below, a stream of water

winds between rooftops and gardens. Far

away, the shadow of Zanskar casts upon

white snow. All was quiet, except for the

whistling of the wind through wooden

chinks in the door; in the courtyard

the flag flew overhead as the leaves

fell against each other. How I love and

appreciate this moment.

From Padum to Phuktal

The next day, we left Padum early in

the morning for Phuktal, an ancient

Buddhist shrine associated with the

Gelugpa. Built in the 12 th century

from mud and wood, Phuktal has a

special position, dropping itself from

a natural cavern and looming over the

canyon above the Tsarap River. Today

the monastery remains isolated to the

outside world but is still home to

eighty monks.

From Padum, our driver named Kunga

drove us over two and a half hours to

Anmu village situated about 30 km away.


It is at this moment that I begin to understand why the Tibetans of

the BӦn religion believe the mountains, trees, and rivers all carry

souls. The world around me appears as primitive yet lively.

Upstream of the Tsarap River, the

road sits narrowly between slender

canyons. On one side is a high

mountain, on the other rests a deep

river. In the early morning, the river

is translucent and elegant. From a

distance, smoke arises from small

houses, glittering in the early sun

while sparrows fly over harvested

fields. All as in a poem.

In reality, we are moving along on

a rocky road. The road tightens,

winds, the car is thumping against

the rocks, wheels sliding along the

rock-strewn slope. The very look

of the road is enough to strike fear

in us. Finally we have reached the

small village of Amnu. Phuktal is

just a 12km walk away.

When 9 am rolls around we depart

from Amnu. The first trek appears

easy, it's not too steep nor too deep.

My strength is average, but at the

altitude of 4,000 m above sea

level, I realize that I am weaker

than I thought.

After a two and a half hour hike from

Anmu, we arrive at Cha village where

we rest for lunch. From Cha village

to Phuktal is another 7 km and there

are few households here. All of the

white houses here are very simple

but idyllic. Out of Cha village, a steep

slope was waiting for us just as the

sun was on the top of our heads. We

move a few steps to stop and try to

encourage each other to continue.

After the ramp, the trail gently

descends. A few hundred meters

below us the Tsarap River is flowing

to Padum. Purney village and Cha

village are the two rarer inhabited

places on the way to Phuktal.

From here, the landscape becomes

surreal, the dreamlike landscape

opens up to us and each turn

provokes scenery more dazzling than

the last. From the top, I gaze upon

the Tsarap River flowing between two

straight canyons. How can that river

be so crystalline, and the mountains

so breathtakingly vast? The sunset,

dipping into the mountain peak,

melts into rays and bathes the rocks

in rose, sending the water below into

a serene shimmer.

It is at this moment that I begin to

understand why the Tibetans of the

Bӧn religion believe the mountains,

trees, and rivers all carry souls.

After months of

waiting, I have

finally made

it. Phuktal is

amongst the most

secluded and

mysterious of

ancient shrines.

The world around me appears

as primitive yet lively. It is so

close that I feel that by merely

lifting my hand, I will truly be

connected to the miraculous

breath of nature.

I will still be out to see if the afternoon

sun is fading, do not remind me to

hurry, I'm watching my step. The

ledges are narrow, some of the rocks

are near the edge of the road; our

movements are slight as the terrain is

difficult. Fortunately for us, it was not

raining that day.

90

Touching Phuktal

Three hours after leaving the Cha

village, we came to the lodge at the

foot of the monastery. This place

is the quintessence of isolation: no

phone signals, no internet. In the

summer, visitors can walk or travel by

donkeys or horse drawn carts over the

mountain trails. However, in winter,

extreme weather will blanket Zanskar

and the Tsarap River will freeze over.

We've arrived at Phuktal!

After months of waiting, I have finally

made it. Phuktal is amongst the most

secluded and mysterious of ancient

shrines. In the midst of the wilderness,

seasoned by centuries of fierce

weather, Phuktal has been shielded by

the natural cave in the cliff, standing

defiant, ancient and calm.

Phuktal is the soul of the Lungnak

valley (Tsarap). The monks here

TRAVELLIVE

assist the people by organizing

prayer, weddings, funerals and open

schools teaching basic subjects and

religious lessons to children from

grades 1 to grade 8. To this day, the

monastery's clinic hands down the

traditional medical knowledge of

the Tibetan people; they also help to

heal the neighboring villagers. The

monks were away when we reached

the monastery, only a few stayed in

the temple. The tranquility of this

landscaped is dwarfed by the silence

of the temple.

Phuktal, more than anywhere, is

a place to disappear and meditate.

Phuktal comes from the words "Phuk"

meaning "cave" and "tal" - "rest", or

"thar" - "liberate". It's far off distance

does not dissuade travelers seeking

absolute isolation. Travelers may find

that being alone with nature will melt

away the concerns of life.

That night, we slept at the inn on the

foot of the monastery. The inn was

simple with only four rooms; there

was no way to book rooms in advance.

Luck was on our side as there were

two little rooms available. It was only

a tiny bit crowded for ten people. As

the monks were away, we couldn't

have breakfast at the monastery

the following morning. The instant

noodles we packed were not nearly

enough for both lunch and breakfast.

The instant noodles offered by the inn

had expired 6 months ago. Finding a

proper meal proved more difficult in

this land of isolation.

We left immediately the next

morning. Although we knew that

this route would tire our bodies, we

still chose to take the road passing by


Roads

ñ To go to Phuktal Monastery,

you have to conquer Leh - Kargil -

Padum - Phuktal or Srinagar - Kargil

- Padum - Phuktal. The entire route

is about 500 km of mountain roads.

Anmu village is the last village

where cars have access. Then

take the long trek about 12 km to

Phuktal (this section is between 24-

25 km for return trip). At Padum,

you can find a porter- guide who

can take you by car to Anmu and

take you to Phuktal.

Health note

ñ The Zanskar region is located at

altitudes above 4,000 m. Therefore,

you should be well prepared

for health problem, especially

consult your doctor for advice on

antihypertensives.

CuisinE

ñ Zanskar people are mainly

Buddhist and vegetarian. Fish here

is very scarce. You should prepare

dry food from home to make the

meal varied.

Not to be missed

experiences in Zanskar

ñ Visit Lang Tso Twin Lake,

Stat Tso, Drang-Drung Glacier,

Rangdum Monastery on the way

from Kargil to Padum

ñ Visiting villages and monasteries

around Padum, exploring Zanskar

people's life: Sani Village, Karsha

Monastery, Dzongkul Monastery

ñ Trekking into Phuktal and feeling

the majestic beauty of the river

Additional preparation

ñ In addition to common personal

belongings, for trips to Zanskar

area and trekking Phuktal you

need to bring some other items:

ñ Sleeping bags when the bed is

not warm enough

ñ Good trekking shoes

ñ Thermos bottle to keep water

hot longer for making tea or

carrying to bed

ñ Heattech clothing and

comfortable clothes, multi-layer

ñ Moisturizing cream for skin

and lips

ñ Altitude sickness medicine

Reference fees

ñ A total of 1,300 USD for a

17-day trip, including airfare and

visa fees

Purney village, a little bit longer than

the path through Cha village. The first

suspension bridge across the Tsarap

River is just steps away from Phuktal.

The sun has yet to rise, the shadows of

the mountain are still sleeping on the

frigid flowing water.

Our energy streams back into us as

we near the Purney village, three

hours from Phuktal. The road is wider

this morning, but it is not the gentle

road of yesterday as it is a continuous

up and down. Purney shows up

beautifully, with small white houses

quietly nestled in the early sun.

Purney is located at the confluence

of rivers. Down below, the muddy

Kargyag River, flowing from Shingo

La, merges into the clear stream of

the Tsarap River from Baralacha La.

The Tsarap River then flows towards

Padum to the northwest until it

meets the main Zanskar valley, which

is called Jung-khor by locals. The

convergence of these two streams

mesmerizes me with their mystery

and wonder.

Two more hours from Purney, we

reached the second suspension

bridge. This one is longer and rickety

than the one before. It was too late,

the road back was now far away. My

sight is dimmed by the sun, dried and

clouded by the wind and the dust. I try

to continue my steps. At that moment,

I recalled the people I met on the

streets, remembering the gentle

smiles of the old women standing

on the porch of the white house

with brown frame, the gentle eyes of

mothers holding children, innocent

faces of the children born in the wild

hills, grown like weeds.

I also recall the moments when the

green lake revealed itself behind

the turn, the moment the sun rose

to bring the world to life, when two

streams of different colors merged

into one.

I know why I am here. Every trip

makes me happy twice. First when

I journey on the long way, when

beautiful images fill my eyes and

moving emotions fill my heart. And

the other is when I return, push

open the door of the house where the

people I love welcome me back.

ROOF OF THE

With mountains over 7,000 m situated in eastern Tajikistan, the Pamir Mountains

are referred to as "the roof of the world" and were once considered a strategic

trade route on the Silk Road. The historic Pamir Highway, officially called

M41 and located at an altitude of over 4,000 m - the world's second highest

international highway - is an excellent challenge for adventure cyclists.

TRAVELLIVE 113


Every morning we woke up to

a magical setting, and were

overjoyed with a profound

gratitude for life.

114

TRAVELLIVE

DREAMY

FORBIDDEN LAND

As soon as we arrived in Dushanbe,

the capital of Tajikistan, we headed

to the OVIR (Migration Police)

office to apply for our visa permit.

Just a week before we left, we

were told the Pamirs had been

closed to tourists due to rockfalls.

Fortunately, the problem had been

managed, and we received our visas

the next day before hitting the road.

Most of the roads we cycled

on in Uzbekistan were flat

and easy to travel, but the ones

in Tajikistan had many slopes

that were not only high but also

long. Despite the challenge, we

reached our milestone of 10,000

km, a remarkable figure that

reminded us that we had only

departed Paris nine months ago.

From inexperienced beginner

cyclists, we have now become

seasoned warriors.

We woke up early in the morning

when the air was still breezy and

only a few vehicles could be spotted

on the streets. Everyone was

exceptionally warm toward us. One

day, we were given a huge melon by

a driver from a melon pickup truck

before he happily drove away.

During our first days, we cycled

along the scenic Panj River that

borders Afghanistan, a country

we had long wanted to visit where

the beauty of the land and the

hospitality of the people have

became legendary. The feeling is

hard to describe when we were

just a river away from the "dreamy

forbidden land".

We chose an incredibly beautiful

location to camp with majestic

mountains surrounding us. The hot

climate caused the ground to crack,

but below it ran a mellow stream.

It was difficult for us to get down,

but in the end we managed to bathe

ourselves in the cool water, and

washed away all the sweat and hard

work of the day.

On another day, we set up a tent

right next to the Panj River.

On the other side of the

river, a group of Afghan women

dressed in long skirts were seen

laughing and washing their clothes,

while local shepherds made their

way back home with their cattles,

taking the dust up in the air. We

also spotted young men with their

heads wrapped and jackets flying

in the wind on Cross motorcycles

raised their hands to wave at us.

Life there seems peaceful, but no

doubt Afghanistan is one of the

most dangerous place in the world.

FULL OF SWEAT

TRAVELERS ON TWO

WHEELS

From the river, we headed toward

the villages to experience the

locals' daily life. Small kids with

bare feet and sunburnt faces but

sparkling eyes stood cheering us

on and clapped their little hands

for us sweat-drenched travelers

on two wheels. Seeing us must


Clockwise from this picture:

Alessio, Binh Nguyen's husband;

Riding donkey, a familiar animal

in the highland's life; Tajikistan

smile; The nomad opens the tent

welcomes travelers

have been a particular delight for

children in those remote areas.

They reminded me of the children

in the Vietnamese writer Thach

Lam's story, who waited daily for

the train to pass as some sort of joy

that made their lives less dull.

Every day we bought two buckets

of apricots from the local children.

The sweetness of the golden

apricots enabled us to resist the

terrible heat and cope with the

lack of food. Even now, thinking

of them makes my mouth water.

Besides meeting the kids, we had

interesting encounters everyday.

We were sometimes invited to play

soccer with the young men in the

green fields. When we camped

near the villages, people would

either pay us a visit, invite us to

their home, or give us food. The

incredible hospitality of the locals

took us by surprise and deeply

touched us.

The M41 highway, where we cycled

was once a major trading route

in Central Asia. It turns out that,

despite being called a "highway",

the road is quite narrow and in

bad condition with many potholes.

Traffic is sparse with mainly cargo

trucks traveling this road.

At an altitude of 3,000 m, the

nights became colder, and the

ground cooler, a stark contrast to

our previous days' experiencing

heated campgrounds that lasted

through the night. It also became

more difficult for us to continue

our climb when we reached the

altitude of 4,000 m, where the

lack of oxygen required us to

double our strength. There were

steep slopes one after another and

the condition of the road remained

challenging. At this point, even

experienced cyclists had to try

their hardest to push on the pedals

while everyone simply went quiet.

Food became increasingly sparse

with no fruits were available and

cooking dishes became difficult.

We mainly had bread with

condensed milk for breakfast,

along with cereals and canned

foods for lunch and dinner.

TRAVELLIVE 11


In return, we were rewarded

with the most magnificent and

breathtakingly beautiful scenes.

Every stop was more beautiful

than the previous with gentle

rivers and majestic mountains

twisting in exotic shapes all

about. Every morning we woke

up to a magical setting, and

were overjoyed with a profound

gratitude for life. It felt incredible

to be in harmony with nature and

we were awash with a deep sense

of inner peace. We went on and

hardly met anyone along our trail.

All that was left behind was our

bike tracks.

CAMPING ON THE ROOF

OF THE WORLD

We decided to take a detour to

visit Bulunkul, a remote village

in the Pamirs. We were taken by

surprise with the stunning scenery

of blue sky, red mountains, and

golden sand. However, the village

was a disappointment. Almost

everyone we met was in a state

of drunkeness, and the children

seemed bored. We turned down

the offer to stay at one of the

locals' homestays, and decided

to camp among nature instead,

even if we had to sweat a few liters

more and burned a few thousand

more calories before finding a

good spot.

We made it to Murgab totally

exhausted but full of pride. We

found a place to stay at the Pamir

Hotel, a godsend for tired cyclists

who wanted nothing more than

a soft bed, hot bath, and a real

kitchen. We spent two days here

to rest, relax, and drink a few cold

beers before heading for our final

leg of the journey - conquering

the Ak-Baital Pass, the highest

point of the M41 highway at 4,655

m height which was more than a

day away.

After getting to the top, we came

back down and the trail was just

as challenging as the way up, if

not more dangerous with bumpy

ground and winding paths. At the

end of our journey, we all walked

around with limp legs and our

bikes were absolutely worn out.

When we arrived at the Karakul

Lake what opened before our eyes

was amazing scenery with blue

water, clear sky, and white clouds

against the backdrop of snowcovered

mountains. We had lunch

at a local's house in the village

TRAVELLIVE


efore being offered a place to rest, and

we simply could not refuse. The house

was in the typical style of Central Asia

which features a large room with bright

red carpets and sofa pillows scattered

around the room. I even found precious

pieces of decoration from the Soviet

Union in their house, which were very

commonly used in Vietnam over 30

years ago when I was still a child.

The country of Tajikistan and the

Pamir Mountains are no doubt "the

roof of the world", and we were

challenged to the last minute. The last

distances and the last slopes before

we reached the Kyrgyzstan border

We grinded our teeth,

lowered our heads to

concentrate on the pedaling,

and had to push our own

bikes at some points.

BInH ngUyen

Having left Vietnam to settle in

france, Binh Nguyen joined

his friend Rasom alessio of

Italian nationality to travel

around the world from paris

to Hanoi on a bicycle. Taking

the nickname "rollingpotatoes",

Binh Nguyen and Rasom

alessio made their long journey

from paris to 18 countries. The

"rollingpotatoes" are adventure

cyclists who often seek the most

challengeing trails. You can

see pictures from their past trips

on www.rollingpotatoes.com.

were probably our most challenging

moments. We had to go down in the

oppositie direction of the wind, and

overcome steep slopes. We grinded our

teeth, lowered our heads to concentrate

on the pedaling, and had to push our

own bikes at some points.

After spending over three weeks in

Tajikistan, we finally said our goodbyes.

Before heading to Kyrgyzstan for a

totally new adventure, we looked back

for one last time, trying to take in as

much of the incredible views of nature

and the hospitality of the locals, so that

this unforgettale experience would be

forever engraved in our hearts.

ñ When in every city, take some time to visit

the local markets to experience a true feel

of Tajikistan through different colors, tastes,

and sounds.

ñ Bulunkul and Karakul lakes have the most

beautiful views along the highway.

ñ The souvenir shops set up in broken buses

in Yamg Village are popular stops for visitors.

STAy

ñ There are no hotels or motels in the

suburbs of Murghab and Khorog. The only

option for travelers on the Pamir highway

is to stay at a local's home, or camp along

the road.

eAT

ñ Central Asian cuisine is not particularly

diverse. You should definitely try Plov (rice

is simmered in a rich stew of meat and

vegetables) and Kurutob (flat bread served

in a warm yogurt based sauce topped with

onions, tomatoes, and fesh herbs).

It's hard to forget the feeling of sitting on a slow

walking camel in the middle of an immense desert,

where dunes stretch to infinity, when golden light

glistens in the afternoon and a sudden whirlwind rolls

over in dark dust. Even the feeling of dull lasting pain

from a two-hour camel ride in Morocco is difficult to

forget. It's like sitting on a bicycle saddle and riding

that bike through a pot-poled path. Taking pictures via

camel is also no easy task due to the wobbly position.

If you desire desert pictures with the walking camel

corps, you should jump to the ground, sustain blasts of

sandy wind whipping your face and run after the corps

to take photos.

Travel blogger Quoc Anh telling the story

behind the stunning photo of the Sahara he

captured.

E xplore Taiwan's

In addition to the National Palace Museum, Taiwan offers other amazing museums for

visitors to enjoy, many of which are considered national treasures, and left me in awe

during my recent trip to this beautiful country.

TRAVELLIVE 123


National Palace Museum

ñ Zhi Shan Road, Shilin District,

Taipei City, Taiwan

ñ Opening hours: 8.30am - 6.30pm

daily & 8.30am - 9.00pm on

The "Louvre" of Taiwan

I have always had an interesting

fascination with museums.

Everywhere I travel, museums are

usually the firsts on my list of places

to visit. My recent trip to Taiwan was

one of the few trips with exception

since Taiwan is a very young country,

and I thought its museums were not

worth visiting. It turned out that I

could not have been more wrong.

Initially, I only intended to visit the

National Palace Museum in Taipei

as it is always ranked among the top

10 most famous museums to visit in

the world.

As soon as I

entered the gate

however, I was

completely in

awe. Everywhere

you look is

a priceless

Chinese antique

or artifact that

exemplifies

the finest

craftmenship

and imperial taste

encompassing 8,000 years

of China's historical and artistic

achievements.

The museum offers a number

of display rooms and galleries

exhibiting works of calligraphy,

renowned paintings, bronze

relics, porcelains, jade artifacts,

curios, tapestries, rare books, and

documents that date back thousands

of years from the Neolithic age

(4,500 - 2,700 BC) through to

the 20 th century. These priceless

treasures give visitors a glimpse

into China's rich history, culture,

philosophy, and customs.

Unfortunately, visitors can not

admire all of the nearly 700,000

artifacts that the Taipei National

Palace Museum currently possesses

if they only visit the museum once.

Due to the excessive amount, the

artifacts exhibited at the museum

are rotated once every three

months. I did not have the chance

to view the museum's two most

prized items, the Jadeite Cabbage

- a piece of jadeite intricately

carved into the shape of a Chinese

cabbage, and the Meat-shaped Stone

- a piece of jasper that resembles a

hunk of pork belly.


National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts

Leaving the Taipei National Palace Museum, I decided to add

other museums across Taiwan to my must-visit list. The Taipei

Fine Arts Museum is closed to the public until the summer of

2018, so I headed to Taichung to explore the National Museum

of Fine Arts. Considered one of the finest modern art museums

in Asia, the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts provides a

playful and interesting learning space for kids.

The main building breaks the traditional scheme of architecture by

using a transparent corridor that connects the museum and outdoor

nature scenes to create a spatial transition and communicate a mutual

awareness. Unlike the Taipei National Palace Museum, which houses

a permanent collection of artifacts, the National Museum of Fine

Arts features only one permanent exhibition on its third floor, which

consists of mostly Taiwanese artifacts from the 18 th century to the

present day.

The lower floors of the museum regularly hold exhibitions featuring

Western artworks, Chinese brush paintings, sculptures, and its own

collection of valuable pieces of art. The National Museum of Fine Arts

also provides a number of kids-friendly zones to encourage children

to explore art and visit the museum's Picture Book Area and Family

Room, both of which are often filled with children of all ages.

My favorite part of the museum is the green park that surrounds the

main entrance. The park contains 45 sculptures, and a stone tablet

forest with 50 calligraphic tablets engraved onto stone by renowned

Taiwanese scholars. The whole area measures 102,000 square meters

with vast grassy areas where visitors often like to sit to enjoy the gentle

breezes, and listen to the children laughing.

National Museum of

Natural Sciences

It comes as no surprise that

the National Museum of

Natural Science attracts three

million visitors each year

since it is one of the most

frequently visited museums

in Taiwan. With an area of 22

acres, the museum is a large

complex of six seperate venues,

which offer all from exhibitions to

learning facilities for adults and

children of all ages.

Located in Taichung, the National

Museum of Natural Science

covers a vast area of 89,000

square meters, including over 30

permanent exhibition areas where

diverse subjects are explored,

encouring visitors to have a

deeper understanding of nature

and science through interactive

exhibits, robotics, and cubism.

The National Museum of Natural

Sciences offers one of the most

lively and highly interactive

exhibits that I have ever been to. In

the Dinosaur Gallery, you will find

more than 50 different kinds of

fossils and replicas as well as four

life-size and life-like animatroic

dinosaurs. The Human Culture

Hall offers an insightful look into

the evolution of humans, birds,

and other animals.

At the museum is where I learned

about China's four greatest

inventions from paper making, to

gunpowder making, to printing,

and compass making, as well as

where I read ancient writings

on the turtle shell, studied a

sophisticated textile weaving

machine, explored the system of

acupuncture points on the body,

and other forms of traditional

medical knowledge which China

has been known for, as well as

admire over 100 different herbs

and discover the Chinese spiritual

life. Visitors can also learn about

the life of ancient Taiwanese

with their traditional cultivation

and fishing methods, explore the

museum's collection of precious

gems and minerals, and discover

a rainforest with over 800 species

of plants. Try to learn as much as

posible while you are here and you

will not regret it.

The National Museum of Natural

Science has one of the finest

state-of-the-art facilities around the

world, as can be seen in the design

of the exhibits, and clever use of

space, light and color to create an

aestheticly pleasing and highly

interactive space for its visitors.

The National Museum of Natural

Sciences plays the roll of not only

an important educational center

on a national scale, but also is

able to arouse both adults' and

children's interests in science.

The museum is also a fantastic

recreation venue perfect for both

locals and visitors alike.

Good morning

HANOI

Text and photos: Ngoc Tran

TRAVELLIVE

Rise early and take a walk around the Old Quarter to see how

Hanoians greet the morning!

Hanoians love to fill their stomachs with a good traditional breakfast. Choose from a

variety of delicious breakfast options from rice noodle filled soups, to different types of

vermicelli noodles, to sticky rice, to p©tä with bread as well as rib porridges and balut.

All you have to do is pick a street stall, sit down on the plastic stool on the sidewalk,

and enjoy your favorite breakfast.


food&beverage

You can find a number of popular food stalls on Hang Bong, Hang Gai, and Hang Dao where

their longstanding reputation attracts long queues of customers every morning.

Hanoi's staple dish is the famous 'phÎ' with options ranging from beef to chicken, to beef stew noodle

soups, all using a fragrant semi-clear broth made from pork or chicken bones and a number of spices. A

bowl of 'phÎ' never looks more tempting than with thin cuts of beef or chicken and green onions fresh and

aromatic in the morning air. Squeeze in a bit of lime juice, add chili sauce and garlic vinegar to your soup

to get the finest flavor and enjoy your 'phÎ' in all of its glory.

'B∏nh cuËn' or rolled-rice noodle is another favorite dish of Hanoians that takes some time to make, but it

is totally worth the wait when the lady steams the rice batter, rolls them into sheets with cooked seasoned

ground pork, adds dried onions, and brings it to your table. It's simple, but incredibly satisfying.

If you are too busy in the morning, try the cheap and delicious p©tä with breads, sticky rice with fried eggs,

mungbean sticky rice, or 'x´i khÛc' (stuffed sticky rice) for a quick breakfast on the go.

Hanoi in the morning is probably at its most mesmerizing with different smells of food inviting you to sit

down and order some of the most amazing breakfast dishes while the rest of the world still slowly wakes.

It's a rare glimpse of a calmer, simpler, more tranquil Hanoi.

Seaview 180 SV2 Snorkling Mask

For those who love to snorkel and enjoy the beauty of the

ocean, the Seaview 180 SV2 snorkling mask is a must-buy.

The full face snorkling mask sports a wide field of vision, an

action camera mount, and two separate breathing chambers to

reduce fogging and let you breathe easier.

The particularly large lens is designed to provide a 180-degree

view of the ocean, and the mask features a separate breathing

chamber with twice the ventilation of most other full-face

designed masks to maximize fresh air flow and reduce fogging.

A durable silicone insert forms a watertight seal around

your face, and if any water does slip past the defenses, it

automatically drains out via the one-way chin valve when you

lift the head out of the water. The Seaview 180 SV2 mask also

sports a removable mount for action cameras on the side to

help you take incredible underwater videos.

The snorkling mask is priced at around

2,000,000 VND.

Trakdot Luggage Tracker

To prevent your luggage from getting lost when you travel,

get a Trakdot Luggage Tracker to give you that much needed

peace of mind. The tracker is equipped with an internal GSM

chip to emit signals when your luggage is near you. When

your luggage is 9 meters away from you, Trakdot warns you

by sending a notification to your phone or tablet. Available on

iOS and Android.

The tracker can be purchased on Amazon at about

900,000 VND.

Bell Tent

Camping and Glamping (glamor camping) are the two hotest

travel trends where one experiences being close to nature

yet with added convenience and luxurious services. For

families to fully enjoy this experience, you will need a 5 m

wide Bell Tent that can cover an area of 25 m 2 .

Bell tents are usualy made of canvas or oxfort canvas with

UV resistance, water resistant and fire resistance. Unlike

normal tents, the bell tents feature a high roof (3 m) to

create a larger space inside the tent for a roomy feel. With

bell tents, users can decorate both the interior and exterior

of the tent to make a fun living space for the whole family.

The tent is priced at around 10,000,000 VND.

GENERAL NEWS

Cao Bang

The Advisory Council of the

Global Network of Geoparks of

the United Nations Educational,

Scientific and Cultural

Organization (UNESCO) has

recently recognized the Cao

Bang Geopark in Vietnam as

the World Natural Heritage or

Global Geopark. The Cao Bang

Global Geopark is a rare area

where the Earth's history of

500 million years can be traced

through fossils, sediments,

volcanic rocks, and minerals.

The limestone landscapes are

excellent evidences of the

evolution and change of the

Earth. This is Vietnam's second

global geopark with the first

being Dong Van Karst Plateau

(Ha Giang Province) which was

recognized by UNESCO in 2010.

BRG Danang Golf Resort

The BRG Danang Golf Resort

has opened a new stunning

course in classic sand dune style

designed by the world’s leading

golf course architects Nicklaus

Design. Perfectly harmonizing

with the existing Greg Norman's

18-hole course, the new

Nicklaus course promises to

bring a completely different golf

experience for golfers due to

the wooden bulkheads that line

many of the Tees, Fairways, and

Greens. This new feature is the

first ever in Asia, and will blend

with Danang's smooth white

sand beaches to offer players a

unique golf experience.

Air Seoul

South Korea's low cost carrier

Air Seoul is launching a new

route to Vietnam’s Danang

in May. The new route aims

to expand its services in the

Asia-Pacific region. Air Seoul

spokesman said the first flight

will be taking off on May 18,

using the A321 aircraft with 195

seats.

L'Espace

The French Ambassador to

Vietnam Bertrand Lortholary

and President of the Hanoi

University of Architecture Le

Quan have recently opened

a new branch of the French

Cultural Center L’Espace in

Ha Dong. The cooperation

between the French Cultural

Center in Vietnam and the

domestic university partner is

a powerful symbol for the 45th

anniversary of the establishment

of diplomatic relations between

Vietnam and France. The

L'Espace Ha Dong welcomed 80

students for its course and will

become a new French language

center at many universities and

educational facilities in Hanoi.

Huawei Nova 3e

The Huawei Consumer Business

Group has introduced the new

Huawei Nova 3e in Vietnam.

With the Nova catering

especially to trendy young

consumers, the Huawei Nova 3e

features an elegant design along

with powerful performance and

outstanding value.This stylish

mid-range smartphone comes

in two color choices: Klein Blue

and Midnight Black. The Huawie

Nove 3e runs Android 8.0,

features a display 2.0 with 19:9

aspect ratio with Notch Design,

and is equipped with 16MP front

camera and 16MP + 2MP dual

camera setup with integrated

natural beauty algorithm for vivid

and true to details shots. The

Huawei Nova 3e supports 9V/2A

high voltage fast charging, which

reduces charging time by 30%,

coupled with a 15-layer security

net protection system. The

device also features 4GB RAM

and 64GB internal memory,

allowing users to play games,

listen to music, and watch videos

without worrying about memory

or storage limitations.

Suzuki GSX-R150

The GSX-150R is a small sport

bike model that is easy to drive

and is equipped with a powerful

engine, modern features, and

has an acceptable price. Among

bikes in the same range, the

GSX-R150 is ideal for young

motorcycle beginners with

less experience in the game.

The GSX-R150 features a high

aerodynamic design with a headturning

back lamp. The rider’s

forward position is just right

to create a sporty feel, but also

pleasant enough to drive on the

streets. A major hightlight of the

GSX-R150 Special Edition is its

unique sporty paint scheme.

Available for sale at Suzuki

dealers at a suggested retail

price of 76,900,000 VND

including VAT. For more details,

contact hotline 1900 6950.

Crescent Mall

The recent Travel Fair at

the Crescent Mall offered

unique and exciting shopping

experiences for travelers. At

the fair, visitors were able to

purchase numerous travel items

for their upcoming trips, and

immerse in a shopping paradise

that sold items from prestigious

brands such as Samsonite, Travel

Zone, and Coleman. In addition,

visitors also had access to a

number of tours, airfare, and

luxurious hotel rooms for an

affordable price.

Bamboo Airways

The Bamboo Airways’ brand

identity recognizes the stylized

bamboo as their main theme,

incorporating a logo depicting

the tail of the aircraft and using

blue as the color of the sea and

the sky. This brand identity is

designed by leading Japanese

brand design company LIFT

Strategic Design, who designed

a number of well-known airlines

around the world such as China

Airlines, Philippines Airlines, and

Oasis Hong Kong Airlines. The

airline is set to begin operations

later this year with 10 aircrafts

on lease before receiving 24 of

their own A321 NEO aircrafts

in 2021.

Alba Wellness Resort

The Alba Wellness Resort which was

launched in mid-April, is the first resort

in Hue featuring an outstanding multifunctional

facility. The 5-star resort offers

guests the chance to learn more about the

local culture, retreat, relax among nature,

and rejuvenate the body by taking part in

holistic Onsen bath rituals, meditation,

yoga, and spa therapy. Surrounded by lush

forests, natural hot springs and bamboolined

paths, the Alba Wellness Resort

features 56 hotel rooms and bungalows

in two separate areas: Alba Inn and Alba

Village. With an area covering 1.7 hectare,

guests staying at the Alba Wellness can

visit the resort's organic farm to learn

about organic agriculture and taste freshly

picked fruits at the farm. For more

information, visit: www.albawellness.com.

to produce the most accurate and honest results.

Firstly held in 1778, the Genzano Infiorata Flower

Festival and the celebration of the Eucharist have

become the most famous religious, historical,

and folklore-based event in Italy. People from

everywhere flock to the Via Belardi Road that

leads to the Church of Santa Maria della Cima

to admire amazing flower beds designed as

art works. On the last day of the festival, local

students are allowed to run over the flower beds

to clear them as a ritual to end the festival.
