This Is The Gear That Took Me To Southeast Asia

What clothes, gadgets, and backpack does a photographer and writer for an adventure travel site rely on when he’s going to Asia and travelling light? This is my pared down adventure-storytelling kit, and how it performed.


I Lost All This Stuff In Vietnam: An Ode To Backups

Last month while riding a $450 motorcycle through Vietnam, I lost my backpack. It contained my camera, computer, and two hard drives containing seven months of RAW photos and videos. This is what I learned from the ordeal.


Video: The Stunning Wonder And Beauty Of Vietnam

Vietnam is one of my favourite places in the world, because the country is just beautiful, the food is absolutely fantastic and the people are so kind. I’m also completely biased, because that’s where my family is from. But still! Watch this video that tours the wonders of Vietnam and try and say you don’t want to go. It’s impossible.


Riding Motorcycles And Ostriches In Vietnam's Mountains

Want to see the mountains, forests and farms of the “real” Vietnam? Get away from the tourist hoards, get on a motorcycle and go. I just did that, and even got to ride an ostrich. Here’s how you can too.


Inside The World's Third Largest Cave

The world’s third largest cave has “rooms” that stand 100m high and span 180m across. It’s so spectacular that it’s playing home to several upcoming blockbusters, including this summer’s Pan, and others the force compels us not to disclose. We hiked through the Vietnamese jungle to explore it.


I'm Riding A $450 Motorcycle Across Vietnam

Buying a $US450 motorcycle to ride across a communist country devastated by war with your own sounds like a great idea, right? I thought so. Here’s how you can do it too.


Check Out The Staggering Size And Beauty Of The World's Largest Cave

Wow. Ryan Deboodt took a drone inside Hang Son Doong in Vietnam, also known as the world’s largest cave, and captured stunning footage that shows off a world that looks like no other. You get a sense of the size of the place — the biggest chamber is 5km long, 200m high and 150m wide — and you feel its beauty.


Vietnam Looks Like A Beautiful Country To Get Lost In

Vietnam is where my family is from, and I only just visited the country for the first time a few weeks ago. The food is delicious, the people were kind and it seems like a wonderful place to get lost in and explore and get lost again. Georgy Tarasov and his brother spent 45 days in Vietnam and did just that.


Trying To Cross The Street In Vietnam Is Just Crazy

If you don’t walk with confidence, you’ll never cross the street. One bit of hesitation and you’re going to cause a massive scooter crash. You have to treat your body like a car. Or at least a moped. Or at least a helmet. If you don’t hit them, they won’t hit you. Or something like that.


This Dog Poop Is Actually A Secret Rescue Beacon

Weird historical artifact of the day: This is not a dog excrement, it’s a T-1151 Dog Doo Transmitter from the collection of the National Museum of the US Air Force. It looks gross, but it was incredibly useful during the Vietnam War.
