Given that it’s located just 15 minutes out of the heart of the city, these hot springs can be pretty crowded during peak hours in the morning.

‘’Hell on Earth’’ was how Con Doa Prison was described during its heyday – and that alone tells you all about the dire conditions and brutal torture liberally dished out by its guards and security staff.

Vietnamese is perfect for those who love a strong, dark-roasted flavor. One cup of coffee can be equal to about three cups elsewhere, so drinkers beware! The Robusta bean is the main coffee bean of Vietnam, and its caffeine content is even deadly to bugs, making it an excellent defense from insect attacks. While coffee was first brought to Vietnam by a French Catholic priest in 1857, it wasn’t until the 1900s that the Robusta bean began to grow and flourish in Vietnam’s highlands. Eventually, over decades, coffee plantations would pop up in the Dak Lak province. When the Doi Moi economic trade ..read more
