Outdoors in Vietnam

In Da Lat I went for a short yet demanding hike. On my way through the rainforest I met a local that I didn’t want to befriend:

(however, I was more than happy to join some human locals at their bonfire when I was exploring off the trail)

Few days later I ended up in Nha Trang where I got a chance to snorkel for the first time in my life. The coral reef was mind-blowing. Oh, and there were also some amazing temples.

Good morning, Cao Dai

Few days ago I landed in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to start my journey through SE Asia. Here’s the first highlight: the main Cao Dai temple, which I visited yesterday for the midday mass.

The ceremony was incredibly enchanting, with chorus accompanied by traditional music, countless scents burning and minimalism typical for Muslim prayers mixed with richness of colors resembling Hindu temples.

BTW on my way back I visited the Vietkong tunnels in Cu Chi. It was OK, but I’m not that interested in combat techniques and tactics.
