TravelPod Member ReviewsTu Quy Dong Hoi
At $15 a room with free wifi, computers and tea and coffee plus the lovely, very friendly and helpful couple that run it, this is a great guesthouse. It location is perfect, everything is within walking distance, and it's situated down a narrow alley buzzing with stalls and Vietnamese women cooking on the street! I love it! I have not give it 5 stars as our room is a little noisy as its above reception but not really much to complain about!

... thing on the menu - sweet potatoes with garlic. I thought is sounded kinda odd but tasty, so was pretty gutted when a plate of greasy french fries was put in front of me. Something had clearly gotten lost in translation. I started eating meat again that night. We took a local bus to Phong Nha village the following day. Staring out the steamy windows of the creaky old bus at solitary farmers in the damp green paddy fields, grazing water buffalo and the ...
... left standing and hasn't been restored yet was riddled with bullet holes. It was nice to see the contrast between what has and what hasn't been restored yet. After walking around for a while I'd got really sweaty, so I had a drink in the Queen Mum's Pavillion, with a fan on full blast at my face. That was lovely. I walked around for another hour or so after that, then headed off to the Royal Antiquities Museum, as it was included in the price of the ticket. There wasn't ...
... to hit their sticks against the ground in the grasses near the hammock, which was a little disconcerting. This incident earned me the name Snake Bait for the rest of the trek. (It didn't come back for me.) A few days later, I also put my foot into my hiking boot when there was a toad inside, so I didn't have great luck with the Vietnamese wildlife overall. All of my photos are on my camera instead of my phone, so you'll just have to wait for ...
