Hanoi vs Ho Chi Minh City - where's best for what ?

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

The only reason I go to Bui Vien is for the Indian restaurant. It is a complete and utter shit hole otherwise with frequent fights, scams, rip-offs, ugly slappers and way to many back-packers and English teachers.

Baba's kitchen indeed. Pretty good (and I grew up with a lot of Indians and went to an Indian school).

So Hanno is a german hotelier / photographer who grew up with indians in kenya whilst also living in Cambodia 20 years whilst somehow also living in south africa.

Hanoi is the ticket.
Lots to see and eat, the Temple of Literature, cheap beer on the street, Hoan Kiem Lake. And they love Uncle Ho. Great value for your money.

Possible he grew up in Kenya and South Africa and then moved to Cambodia? Like many of us.

I grew up in Denmark and Sweden and now I here.

Yeah well, unlike you, I have actually lived/live an interesting life. Oh, and nowhere have I claimed to have lived in Cambodia for 20 years though I have also lived in China, UAE, and Europe.
