Hoi-An2Once a bustling trading port, the town of Hoi An in central Vietnam inspires artists and writers with its beauty.

In Hoi An, Ancient, winding roads call for hesitant steps. This is a place to wander and to backtrack, to go slowly. I advance, turn and come back to where I started my path a series of triangles. Each street corner and wall is wrapped in damp moss; each roof sprouts weeds that catch my eye. Straight lines and tight angles are rare in Hoi An, a town in central Vietnam that flourished as a trading port from the 17th to 19th century. All of the old houses are of different heights, their verandas offering places to rest. Low and tall roofs from different triangles against the sky, and beams of sunlight fall upon patches of moss on the ground.

Up front

It is hBinh phongard to imagine a traditional Vietnamese house without an entrance screen. The screen id found somewhere in the courtyard or within the house itself, standing behind the main entrance. These old screens reveal a great deal about Vietnam’s history and culture.

In 1687, Lord Nguyen Phuoc Thai moved the capital of South Viet Nam from Kim Long Village to Phu Xuan (now Hue City). They to this decision were the existence of a mountain. Lord Nguyen Phuoc Hoai believed that Mac Son Mountain had been created by nature to protect the capital to a new kingdom, which he was destined to rule. His conviction was so strong that he did not hesitate to build an entire city. The mountain was then renamed Ngu Binh (Royal Screen) and became a symbol of Hue.

Hue city amosak of color and history

Phap LamA friend of time, after visiting Hue, commented that: the mossy citadels, the palaces and temples with are covered in timeless dust, and deserted by the many years of war. The quiet mausoleums that hide themselves under an old pine tree… all these things inspire and capsulated the ancient and majestic feature of a memorable old capital. But one thing that brightens Hue is “Phap Lam” (Painted enamel bronze object). I have been astonished by the opinion of a French scholar regarding “Phap Lam”.

Yes! “Phap lam” has enhanced the splendid appearance of Hue palace and its sanctuaries and shrines by the tones of color.

What a trip!

Love marketIn northern Vietnam the loop from Hanoi through Sapa to above Ha Giang and back is regarded as one of the most challenging and spectacular motorbike rides in the region. Hanoi – based artist and writer Bradford Edwards made the grueling trip to attend the annual “Love market” in Khau Vai near the Chinese border.

The most practical way to get around in Vietnam’s highlands is by Minsk, the 125cc Russian motorcycle that has achieved cult status among a small group of adventurous Hanoi expats. While these bikes beak down regularly (what can you expect for $US300 second hand?) they can take heaps of punishment on the trail. The best way to begin a Minsk ride is to bypass the boring and congested routes out of Hanoi and transport your bike on the night-train to Lao Cai.

Great escape

The Six Senses HideawayA secluded resort in central Vietnam offers fantastic scenery, total privacy, and every luxury.

Imagine talking a plane to Nha Trang in Central Vietnam, a drive along winding roads, and a gleaming boat through clear waters under the cloak of night. Getting to Ninh Van Bay requires all three, and your journey has only begun.

The Six Senses Hideaway, Ninh Van Bay, is located deep in the cervices of a Vietnamese peninsula. Accessible only by water, your journey to the resort, albeit long, is an incredible prelude to the rest of your stay, from the beach; you’re next to a version of nature that includes all your five – star amenities. Your villa is your castle and your gracious host. Everything here is eco-friendly, from the recycled ironwood flooring to the stone footpaths, mosquito nets, and cotton day beds. Few things are left to chance here. As much as 90% of what goes on, you, the guest, will never see. In addition to providing tiny amenities such as sewing kits and toothbrushes, everything from bath salts to notepads and insect – repelling incense are laid out for your convenience. If the sound of the sea isn’t sleep, there is a pillow menu coupled with an evening turndown service that lowers the mosquito net over your bed.
