I have just returned from my Vietnam vacation. It was my first time there, so I would say my trip was an overview to gather intel on what you can incorporate into your own trip. I looked for experiences around the interests of history, architecture, relaxation, ecotourism and adventure.

Are you thinking about to travel to Abu Dhabi? On my most recent trip to Abu Dhabi, I was staying for a few weeks and didn’t need a car full time. I decided to do like so many people do – tourists and residents alike – and use cabs as my major form of transportation (when I wasn’t car-sharing with friends).

Many people travel to Abu Dhabi for short and long term stays for leisure, business or for medical treatments in their world-renowned hospitals. Often car rental is not necessary or wanted, and cabs are commonly used for visiting attractions or for a night out. Cab fare is extremely reasonable, so it is a great alternative to navigating the busy roads on your own and paying for parking.

Hanoi Travel for Good: The Story of a Restaurant With a Heart – Part 1

On a recent Hanoi travel for good trip, I spent 4 days exploring this bustling (some would say chaotic) city.  Not only was I seeking culturally immersive experiences, I was looking for ways to give back to the locale. And, frankly (did I mention Hanoi is, um, busy?), I wanted a navigator in the maze of ancient streets and alleyways and through the ever-beeping rush of motorbikes.

One way I did this was in hiring local guides. The guides I work with are community members and have expertise in whatever I want to explore. In Hanoi, my interests were food, the colonial period, changes from the communist era to today, and shopping.

I have just returned from my G Adventures Vietnam travel as an #AmbassadorofChange2017 where I was sent “on assignment” to Vietnam on one of the most eye-opening and life-changing trips. Although I have many great partners with whom I had worked for Vietnam trips for my clients, this was my first time there. So I was expecting a deeply cultural exploration from the journey, especially since this was a National Geographic trip, and boy, did I ever experience that!
