30 Pictures That Will Make You Want to Visit Vietnam

Vietnam was the first country I visited after officially becoming location-independent, and for that reason alone it will always hold a special significance to me. In this way, my trip to Vietnam was also one of the last I took purely as a traveler, and not as a “travel blogger,” “travel writer” or “travel photographer.” Looking back through my photos and reading back through the writing I did at the time, I find work that is both embarrassing and refreshing in how unfocused it is.

I’m going to spare you the writing portion of that – there’s a reason I’ve made it private, never again to be read by human eyes – but I think you’ll enjoy exploring the pictures I took while I was in Vietnam. I also have a feeling they’re going to make you want to take your own trip there, whether you follow the path I took (by bus, up the coast from Saigon to Hanoi in about three weeks) or plot a course unique to you.

LOVE these Robert. When are you heading back to Asia?

Not soon enough! It’s funny because my first three trips this year were all in Asia, and now I literally don’t know when I’ll be back :-

Phenomenal photos as always Robert, I’ll be heading to Vietnam in the next couple of months!

After seeing those pictures, I would like to return there for these kind moments. I missed somethings like these there. Thank you for sharing

Well, I am sure you saw other moments. 😉 It would be exciting to see what you saw.
