Vietnam's Best Beaches

by Ollie Barstow on 23 February 2012, 16:02PM Vietnam's Best Beaches For a long time Vietnam’s fabulous beaches were something of a hidden secret, a knowing wink between those fortunate enough to have discovered something akin to its more famous south-east Asian counterpart Thailand, albeit without the reputation, the crowds and the vigorous tourist development.However, with great quality comes eventual notoriety and the secret is out about Vietnam, its splendid weather, the lively atmosphere and incredible value now establishing it as an imperative stop on any south-east Asia jaunt.Nonetheless, while those who visit Thailand tend to flock to destinations that have earned a place in infamy – Phuket, Koh Samui, Bangkok… -, Vietnam’s most revered venues have not quite made the public conscience, ensuring crowds are less concentrated.I...

Spotting the Train Spotters on the Southern Spirit

Spotting the Train Spotters on the Southern Spirit

Otherwise known as trainspotters, trainiacs, anoraks even, gunzels, I soon learn have a knack of popping up in the oddest places as we travel the Australian countryside.
