Homestay in Ba Dinh Hanoi with TravelMob.com
I stayed 3 nights in Hanoi, 1 night in Hoan Kiem (the Old Quarter) and 2 nights in Ba Dinh or also known as the “French Quarter”.  This is the eastern side of Hanoi, the other direction of the western side of Hoan Kiem, the old quarter.
For my experience in Ba Dinh, it is more urban and it is more Vietnamese. Hoan Kiem is more for tourist while Ba Dinh is more for the locals.

Homestay in Hoan Kiem with TravelMob.com
We recently travelled to Hanoi and Halong Bay on our own. It was our first trip to Vietnam and we intended to go budget. We heard quite a number of negative remarks on traveling in Vietnam and most of them are untrue. Maybe they were talking about Saigon (Ho Chin Minh) but Hanoi is one of our best trips ever.
For the first night in Hanoi, I chose to stay in Hoan Kiem or the Old Quarter with TravelMob.com. At first, we planned to head straight …

Homestay in Hanoi with TravelMob.com
A few weeks ago, we visited Hanoi and Halong Bay for the first time. Like many first timers, I’m having trouble choosing the right accommodation for my trip to Vietnam. I’ve stayed in boutique hotels, luxury hotels, resorts and even camps before but never really stayed in a homestay for an entire vacation before.

Search where you intend to stay and when you plan to stay and hit “search”.
So how did I get to know travelmob.com? A few weeks ago, I listened to an interview of travelmob …

D’ Hotel Preview Melaka
In one of my sponsored media trips to Thailand, I met this young freelance Chinese writer and photographer. After the trip, we kept in touch and he told me that he was going to open some guest house, bed and breakfast style rooms in Melaka. In fact, he invited most of the media friends we met during our trip to its opening. I couldn’t make it as I was busy but some of them went and gave rave reviews. The place is called Sayang Sayang Melaka. After …
