WHY I GO TREKKING ?

Some of my friends ask me why I am always on the road; from mountain to forest, I am travelling somewhere all year round. All I can tell them is that I fell in love with travelling in my youth. I roamed border areas on stormy nights, visited local markets and made a bunch of new buddies along every trip. But the thrilling and unforgettable experiences of conquering the trekking trail inside Pu Mat National Park (Con Cuong, Nghe An) remains my most favourite journeys.

No one going to to Pu Mat National Park can miss the chance to traverse this beautiful and challenging mountain pass inside this hundred-year-old forest. The route found a long way to the peak like a strip of silk flying in the wind.

I kick off my trekking journey at the gorgeous Khe Kem Waterfall situated right at the foot of the mountain. This is a perfect spot to truly immerse your soul in the bubbling sound of water under the sparkling sunshine.

 

Pressing forward, I eagerly climbed up the mountain and was totally absorbed by the magnificence of nature. The trekking trail was adorned with gigantic green trees and colorful flowers, leaving a stunning vista of the whole forest on one side. On another side are steeped and smooth cliffs.

This gorgeous landscape used to be where numerous generations of Thai ethnic minorities had lived. They have, however, moved to the residence areas outside the mountain and earned a livelihood by planting and establishing community-based tourism.

Every journey leaves unforgettable images, stories and moments behind. But it is not long before the engine revs and the road calls again to create new adventures

VIETNAM IS CRAZY ABOUT COFFEE

“Vietnam is crazy about coffee.” – That is what my friend told me when he first visited Vietnam on June 2019. Walking down any street in Vietnam, you will see people sipping coffee on the sidewalk or in a cafe shop.

Vietnam is Crazy about coffee

After years, the Vietnamese people are after something more than just caffeine fix, so they have created different flavourful variations of coffee. For instance, “cà phê trứng” or egg coffee, a Hanoi speciality, has been all the rage in the past few years. “Cà phê trứng” has a creamy soft, meringue-like egg white foam perched on dense coffee, which makes for its unique flavour and smell. This signature beverage was among the food and drinks items being served to 3,500 local and international journalists covering the second Trump – Kim summit in February this year. In Nghe An, “cà phê bọt” or foamed coffee is widely loved by both the young and old people thanks to its perfectly- whipped soft foam on top of the coffee The locals usually spend the weekends coming to Vinh Market and treat themselves to a cup of flavourful foamed coffee.

In the past, the French introduced coffee to Vietnam, mainly as a way to support their own colonial expat populations. As Vietnam became influenced by other economic forces, coffee started to make its way into the cities. Nowadays, coffee culture is an indispensable part of the Vietnamese lives.

A trip to the peaceful Vinh city will be widely different than modern Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. Vinh lends its rustic charm to a slow and tranquil living lifestyle. Vinh Guru has shortlisted some of the most memorable experiences in Vinh:

Search for the best Phở

Not only can you find a hot flavourful bowl of Pho on every road in Vinh but you can also discover how our local Pho recipes differ from that of other regions. Its taste might be a little more salty compared to that in Hanoi since people in the North Central region tend to use more salt and cook the broth for longer time.

Trace history in the Provincial Xo Viet – Nghe Tinh Museum

We would recommend you to spend a few hours at the museum to discover the old history of the city. The museum traces several graphic photographs and military equipment – including a collection of helicopters, tanks and fighter jets.

Hire a motorbike with a professional Vietnamese driver to wander around the city.

You will see a striking difference in the traffic flow between Vinh and other big cities in Vietnam. It is way less crowded, congested and polluted as Vinh is not a densely populated city.

Visit the local market

If you look for local flavor? This is the place to go! There is a a huge market providing fresh items like fruits, vegetables, flowers, herbs etc. But there is also a big covered part where you can find houseware, clothes, electronics etc. Go and bargain here for your best deal and for nice pictures. And don’t forget to visit Bot Coffee, the secret of Vinh City.
