Direct air route HCM City Zurich

Edelweiss, Switzerland’s leading leisure airline, announced it will open a direct air route between HCM City and Zurich this November, serving two flights per week as part of the carrier’s plan to expand its flight network in Asia.

Direct air route HCM City Zurich: Edelweiss, Switzerland’s leading leisure airline, announced it will open a direct air route between HCM City and Zurich this November. Serving two flights per week as part of the carrier’s plan to expand its flight network in Asia. This is the first direct air route between Vietnam and Switzerland, aiming to reduce travel times, stimulate tourism demands, and trade between the two countries.  

Some travel agents are preparing to launch online ticketing services to help passengers to purchase tickets easily. Edelweiss CEO, Bernd Bauer, said that Vietnam has become popular among Swiss people thanks to the attractive destinations on offer.

The airline expects to serve 10,500 passengers traveling from Switzerland to HCM City each year, earning a revenue of US$32 million per year. The new air route helps to bring tourists from Switzerland and Europe closer to Vietnam and provides a wide range of options for connecting flights from Zurich to other famous tourist attractions through the Swiss airline.

At present, Edelweiss is working with major travel operators in Vietnam to design tour packages for the new route between Vietnam and Switzerland. The predicted passenger growth for the route suggests an increase of about 10% per year over the next 3-4 years. According to the General Statistics Office, in the first five months of the year, more than 16,500 Swiss passengers arrived in Vietnam, up 4.2% against the same period last year. As a wealthy country, Switzerland’s tourists tend to spend more when holidaying abroad than visitors from other nations.

Quan Ba – Ha Giang province

Quản Bạ is a rural district of Ha Giang province in the Northeast region of Vietnam

Quan Ba, a scenic district in northern Ha Giang province is a gateway to the Dong Van Karst Plateau Geopark. High rocks, small, deep valleys, winding roads, and unique local culture make Quan Ba a tourist attraction. Located between 1,000 and 1,600 meters above sea level, Quan Ba district comprises a township and 12 communes inhabited by 16 ethnic groups, 60% of them Mong, 14% Dao, and 11% Tay. Quan Ba is the only place in Vietnam that is home to the Pu Y ethnic group of 880 people.

The Tay live in stilt houses with palm thatch. The Dao build their mud house and grow wet rice at the foot of the mountains. The Mong live in the high mountains and mainly cultivate maize. The local traditional crafts are weaving, carpentry, and pottery. The Tay, Mong, and Dao in Quan Ba embrace a rich treasury of folk cultures with numerous legends, fairy tales, poems, and folk tunes.

Quan Ba is full of exceptional sites such as the Dong Van Heaven Gate, the Can Ty walls, Kho My Tung Vai cave, and Thach Son Than mountain. On the Dong Van karst plateau are two limestone peaks that evoke the shape of two female breasts that are associated with a Mong legend about a fairy named Hoa Dao (peach blossom) who fell in love with a Mong man. They got married and had a little boy.

Furious, the Jade Emperor forced Hoa Dao to return to heaven. Upon leaving the earth, she left her breasts to feed her baby. Later, her two breasts turned into two mountains that the locals dubbed “Fairy Mountain”. Nguyen Tuan Khoa, a photographer from Hanoi said “Tourists, passing through Quan Ba, stop to contemplate the beautiful landscapes and these two breast-like mountains. I have been here several times and each time I have been strongly impressed.”

In Quan Ba, tourists can explore ethnic villages and hamlets like Hop Tien village’s brocade weaving craft, or the Tày Cultural Village in Tam Son township. They can also listen to Then singing and Tinh zither music and attend the rite of passage to adulthood of the Dao, hear the prayers for a good harvest of the Nung and Tay, join the Gau Tao feast of the Mong, and observe the worship of the forest genie by the Pu Y.

The Quan Ba, Quyet Tien, Tung Vai, and Trang Kim markets sell local products and specialties. It would be a shame to stay in the area without sampling ethnic culinary specialties like corn alcohol, smoked pork, farm pork, cornflour, and black-legged chicken. Quan Ba has landscapes of striking beauty and meeting its ethnic minorities is an unforgettable experience.

Hoi An City of lanterns

Hoi An - City of Lanterns. Laterns festival

HOI AN CITY OF LANTERNS. Hoi An is a city in Viet Nam about 30km to the south of Danang. The Old Town of Hoi An is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was a typical trading port in Southeast Asia from the 15th to the 19th century. Indeed, thanks to its favorable location, Chinese and Japanese settlement, Hoi An became a busy trading port. Moreover, the handicraft villages such as lanterns, carpentry, pottery, vegetables… also created the busy trading port of Hoi An.

In particular, Hoi An is considered as the cradle of pure Vietnamese lanterns. Anyone who has ever been to Hoi An cannot forget its nostalgic beauty. Walking through the old quarter, you will immerse yourself in typical buildings of the Old Town of Hoi An of the 18th and 19th centuries with wooden houses, mossy walls and street vendors. Throughout the streets, you can see beautiful lanterns in different shapes in every restaurant, shops, hotels… Definitely, Hoi An cannot be completely beautiful without lanterns. The harmony of lanterns’ colors, the authenticity and the tranquility of the city make us fall in love with Hoi An.

Furthermore, contemplating lanterns in Hoi An is really interesting. Indeed, at every moment, they all have their own beauty. We can see all delicacy, creativity and talent of artisans by looking at these lanterns in the morning with all their details. When night comes, lanterns are bright and full of magic colors. It is lanterns that bring to Hoi An the poetic nocturnal beauty.

Actually, lanterns appeared in the late 16th century when the first Chinese came to settle. They hung the lamp to deal with the feeling of nostalgia. According to the local population, the craftsman Huynh Van Ba was the first one who studied, created and integrated the cultural characteristics of Vietnam into traditional lanterns. The process of making a lantern is a meticulous work that requires many skills of artisans. The main materials used are bamboo and silk which are familiar images in Vietnamese people’s life.

At first, the upper class in society was the only one who could have big lanterns decorated with Chinese characters or paintings hanging at home. Gradually, lanterns became popular for the middle class in the form of home decor by retaining its beauty, luxury and inherent charm.

Nowadays, lanterns come in various shapes, sizes as well as methods of construction. They can be spherical lanterns, pumpkin-shaped lanterns or rotating lanterns. Each shape and color of the lantern has a different meaning. For example, the rounds symbolize harmony and balance. This is a typical shape of lantern in Hoi An. According to folklore, a lantern hanging in the house is the symbol bringing more warmth, peace and luck to the home. If you have the chance to visit Viet Nam, you should not miss Hoi An and the contemplation of lanterns. Source: vietnamtourism.com

Hai Tac Pirates Archipelago

In December 2017, the Kiên Giang People’s Committee recognised the archipelago as a local tourism site.

Tien Hai is the only island commune in Ha Tien District, the southern province of Kien Giang. The commune also has another name: Hai Tac (Pirates) Archipelago. It boasts 16 islands and the total area of 283ha. In the past few years, the island commune has developed community tourism models, making contributions to socio-economic development for Ha Tien District. In December 2017, the Kien Giang People’s Committee recognized the archipelago as a local tourism site.   

Tourists coming to Ha Tien District are always curious about the Hai Tac archipelago, a famed place in the southwest sea of the country. According to local historic documents from the 17th century, Mạc Thiên Tích, a leader of the region, many times ordered his troops to fight against local pirates, who lived in the area. The archipelago name Hai Tac originated from that time.

Besides its mysterious name, Tien Hai island commune has great potential for developing tourism thanks to its primitive landscapes, fresh and cool atmosphere. In order to utilize the tourism potential, in 2014 the local authorities implemented a community tourism project for the period 2014-2020. The commune consists of 16 large and small islands, locating 20km from Ha Tien Town and 40km from Phu Quoc Island.

The commune hosts 500 families with 2,000 people, who live mainly in Hon Tre Lon, Hon Giang, Hon Duoc and Hon Ụ. The biggest among the islands is Hon Tre Lon (also known as Hon Đoc), which is an administration and socio-economic center for the Tien Hai island commune. All people and agencies in the commune are informed about the project and encouraged to join involuntarily.

Hon Tre Village was chosen as a trial model with 17 families, who meet the requirements, to join the community tourism project. Eleven households among them offer food and accommodation services, four households have acted as guides to take visitors to islands and fishing, and two households keep sea fish for visitors to understand raising local fish. Two companies have been specialized in transporting tourists to and from the mainland.  Over the last three years, the project has brought along active results.

The number of guests coming every year has significantly increased and is now up to 70,000 tourists per year. A visitor from Rach Gia City northern province of Kien Giang said she spent two vacations in the area. What I like most when stay at the home of locals in Tien Hai is that I can live near them, see their routines and imagine as if I were a local, she said. However, the area is still lack of freshwater and electricity. By 2020, the national electricity system will reach the islands and tourism service will be better. “Its name “Hai Tac” (Pirates) is scary but actually the islands are beautiful in peace and many romantic beaches with white sand and blue water run long,” Phượng said.

Hai Viet, an old resident on Hon Tre Vinh Island recalled his grandfather’s story on the pirates. “There was once a pirate group named Canh Buom Den (Black Sail) on this island,” he said, “They mostly robbed trading ships passing Ha Tien – Rach Gia Bay. “On the pirates’ ship hung a mop, meaning sweeping off all ships passing by. “The gang controlled a big sea area of the Gulf of Thailand. Up to now, there are still rumors of treasure hidden by the pirates somewhere on this archipelago,” he said. Many locals still believe there is treasure hidden on Hon Doc and scattering around the archipelago.

The only ancient mark on the island is a pagoda named Son Hoa Tu. It is said that once there was ahead of a pirate gang named Nguyễn Thanh Vân. Rumors say he was strong, was a brilliant swimmer and could dive as well as an otter, rebellious but at the same time, had a kind heart. Once his gang traveled to Thailand, he fell in love with a beautiful woman and took her to Vietnam. Since then, he quit the pirate life. They had a daughter called Nguyễn Thị Gái, who was then respected by locals as she built the only pagoda on the islands. The Son Hoa Tu Pagoda remains up to now as an evidence of rumors on local pirates, a special attraction for tourists to the pristine islands. — VNS”

HCMC coffe culture

The first thing a stranger needs to learn in Ho Chi Minh City is how to cross the road. It’s a daunting challenge that requires a fine balance of nonchalance and acute awareness, of deliberate forward motion and hesitancy. Facing down a phalanx of buzzing mopeds with riders expressionless behind helmets and masks is dizzying. It takes a while to discover that it’s a dance of giving and take; that the moped riders will flow around you; that, in the end, the last thing to do is stop. Maybe that’s the essence of Ho Chi Minh City itself.   

It’s a metropolis where it feels as though the future has burst its banks. Skyscrapers rise out of the ground, obliterating neighborhoods where family life once played out at street level. And yet, at the foot of one of these glass-and-steel monoliths sits an old lady, skin like fragile rice paper, serving steaming pho (noodle soup) from an old cart, as if nothing at all has changed.

The best way to enjoy this peculiar balancing act is to sit on the balcony of one of the innumerable coffee houses scattered throughout the city. This way you will be out of the fray but able to look down on the street hustle below. You will also be drinking the beverage that must be at least partly responsible for the kinetic energy that has transformed this city into one of the most sophisticated commercial hubs of south-east Asia in just 20 years.

On the terrace of L’Usine, a French-inspired café overlooking the opera house, I ordered the classic Vietnamese coffee known as ca phe sua da – literally “coffee, milk, ice”. It comprises strong coffee, dripped from a small metal filter into a cup containing a quarter as much sweetened condensed milk, then stirred and poured over ice in a glass.

At first, I couldn’t bear its cloying sweetness, but three days in I’d grown addicted to the sweet buzz that follows a refreshing coolness on the tongue. It suits the humidity of the place in a way that an ordinary latte wouldn’t. Coffee was introduced to Vietnam by the French in the late 19th century but the country quickly became a strong exporter, as vast swathes of the highlands were given over to this important new cash crop. And now the Vietnamese have taken coffee to new levels of almost gastronomical – even medicinal – heights.

At Trung Nguyen Coffee – the Vietnamese equivalent of Starbucks, with a chain of cafés across the city – the coffee menu stretched to five pages. The vibe was studiously chic, with low-slung sofas and Seventies retro branding in orange and brown. Fellow patrons were largely beatnik-inspired youths and businessmen.

Coffee is taken seriously here, with beans from Italy, Japan, Turkey, and Ethiopia, but it was the varieties of Vietnamese coffee that deserved more exploration. They came with different bean combinations and recipes, and lofty names such as “Success”, “Creation”, “Discover” and “Thought”. I went for the “Passiona”, which was exclusively promoted for women with the promise that to drink this nectar would be to maintain perfect skin and a life of “passion and success”.

I drank it a lot, not necessarily because of its promises but because it was delicious. A kind of coffee smoothie, it was developed over the course of nine years and included a concoction of collagen, vitamin PP (to combat skin dryness) and rare oriental herbs. It was probably a calorie overload but became for me a daily ritual while I contemplated the city’s exquisitely balanced fusion of old and new.

At Mr Huynh’s street restaurant with no name, eating his signature beef pho under neon lights, I realised that no matter how many skyscrapers rise and how many mopeds speed towards the future, Vietnam’s past lives on in its food – in the steaming pho on street corners, in the markets with fish thrashing about in gleaming steel bowls, in the mounds of rice of a dozen varieties and the heaps of freshly harvested herbs. As Mr Huynh explained, few Vietnamese people own refrigerators because they buy everything fresh from the market.

Whether rich or poor, they prefer to eat on the street on tiny stools, and every restaurant uses family recipes passed down through generations. So it is that the hunky-dory youths with mobile phones pinned to their ears park their mopeds on the pavement, pull up a stool and eat the same food as their great-great-grandmothers did, long before the Vietnam War interrupted the gathering of rice in the paddies of the Mekong.

I bought my last cup of ca phe sua da from a street vendor outside the War Remnants Museum and drank it in the shadow of an old American tank with Lou, a young Vietnamese woman who still struggled with the war. Her name, Lou, had been given to her by a much-loved aunt who was separated from her family as a girl and ended up being taken care of by a French army deserter hiding from US troops in the mountains.

She went with him to France and it took her 30 years to find her way back to her family; to achieve that, she had to leave her beloved dog behind. The visit to the museum brought up sore memories for Lou, who’d had to change her foreign-sounding name in school to protect her from hatred as she might have been thought of as mixed-race.

“Everyone here has a story,” she told me. “Everyone lost someone, and many had to live with the shame of fighting on the wrong side. We fought and killed one another. No one talks about the war any more, as if it is over, but it isn’t really. It lives on in the silence.”

So in the cacophony that is street life in Ho Chi Minh City, each person carries the past as a secret wound, offering it quietly at his or her ancestral altars but forgetting it during the daily rush and the forgiving clatter of commerce. Vietnam has been invaded by the Chinese, the Japanese, the French and, finally, the Americans. That last legacy fills the rooms of the museum, where a visit concludes with eloquent photographs and testimony from the many, many people bearing the scars and disfigurements of chemical warfare.

Lou didn’t talk about it. Neither did I. We both sipped through our straws, drawing on the sweetness of our ca phe sua da as if it might dilute the bitterness of memory and loss.”

World longest cable car

Phu Quoc to have world's longest cable car

The world longest cable car will be in Phu Quoc. A sea cable car route connecting An Thoi town and Hon Thom Island, the largest of the An Thoi island cluster to the south of Phu Quoc Island off the coast of the Mekong Delta’s Kien Giang province, will open on February 14, just before Tet. Invested by the Sun Group, its nearly 8-km length makes it the longest cable car in the world. Its 70 cars can carry 30 passengers each on a three-rope cable car technology known as 3S gondola, which is the safest and most modern in the world.

The trip provides a 360-degree of the islands and the sea. The cable car is the first and most important installation of the Sun World Hon Thom Nature Park in the southern reaches of Phu Quoc Island, another project from the Sun Group and that features a water park and entertainment park.

The cable car and the Sun World Hon Thom Nature Park will officially open to tourists on February 14, two days before Tet. Tickets for adults and children over 1.3 meters tall are VND500,000 ($22), while children from 1 meter to 1.3 meters tall pay VND350,000 ($15) and children under 1 meter travel for free. To mark the opening, a “buy 1 ticket get 1 free” offer is available to the first 500 visitors each day from February 18 to 22. A lucky draw will also be held, with smartphones, luggage and cable and food vouchers up for grabs.

The Sun Group has built many large real estate and tourism projects in Vietnam, including the world’s longest continuous mono-cable detachable gondola at Sun World Ba Na Hills in the central city of Danang, the world’s former longest 3S gondola at Mt. Fansipan in northern Lao Cai province, and the world’s tallest ropeway tower and largest ropeway cabin, the Ha Long Queen Cable Car, in Ha Long city. Situated in the Gulf of Thailand on the Vietnam-Cambodia-Thailand marine economic corridor, Phu Quoc is the country’s largest island and boasts a range of beautiful beaches.

Phu Quoc National Park, meanwhile, is home to hundreds of plant species, dozens of which are listed in the Vietnamese and world red books of endangered species. The park is part of the Kien Giang biosphere reserve, which was recognized as a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2006. Phu Quoc Island welcomed nearly 362,000 international visitors last year, up 72 per cent against 2016, and targets at least half a million this year.” Source: vneconomictimes.com

Sapa roof of Vietnam

Sapa roof of Vietnam: Just another reason to visit the roof of Vietnam, Sapa. Sapa in Vietnam’s northern province of Lao Cai has become more touristy in recent years, so it is important for those who love the pristine beauty of the town to find a place where they can breath in the fresh air, dive into the green jungle, gaze over the vast paddy fields and experience the ethnic culture.

Aware of that demand, National Geographic has the answer: Topas Ecolodge in Ban Lech Village. Naming the lodge on its new list of Unique Lodges of the World, the U.S.-based publisher suggests to its readers to “wake in the morning to the mist rising with the sun and spend your days exploring the surrounding forests and ethnic villages, and you’ll start to feel the pull of the hill tribes’ centuries-old lifestyle, native to these mountains and virtually untouched by the modern world.” This is because “the stilted common buildings at the heart of the lodge were sourced from a nearby community of ethnic Tay people; and private guest bungalows swirl along the ridgeline, ensuring a spectacular view no matter which one you check in to.”

Opened in 2005 on a mountaintop far from the emerging tourist hub of Sapa Town, Topas Ecolodge offers its guests a rare experience of culture, as there are five different native tribes in the region with distinctive languages and lifestyles. Surrounded by mountains and green rice paddies, the hilltop resort is the first in Vietnam and the 5th in Asia to make the National Geographic list. Last year, it was also ranked first by the site on the list of “21 places to stay if you care about the planet.” All of its 33 white bungalows overlook a spectacular landscape view of terraced rice fields and magnificent mountains, including the rooftop of Southeast Asia, Mount Fansipan. Other lodges in Asia that made the list are Sukau Rainforest Lodge in Malaysia, Three Camel Lodge in Mongolia, Twinkle Valley in China, and Zhiwa Ling Hotel in Bhutan.” Source: e.vnexpress.net
