Famous fashion designer Le Thanh Hoa brings high design to high seas in April, with the firstever floating show in Halong Bay onboard Paradise Elegance cruise. The unprecedented launch of Le Thanh Hoa's prefall collection "The Oriental Sun" takes place during sundown on the sundeck of Paradise Elegance 2, one of two 200-ton steel vessels launched by Paradise Vietnam last year. This is the first fashion cruise has ever been held in the water of uNESCO World's Heritage Site Halong Bay. Since winning the prestigious Aquafina Pure Fashion design competition in 2009, Hoa has established himself one of the premier designers in Vietnam. His dresses have been worn by contestants in the Miss World, Miss Earth and Miss Universe pageants as well as by supermodel Leomie Anderson, who arrived at last year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai in one of his numbers. "I am really thrilled with the show aboard Paradise Elegance. This is going to be my once in a lifetime memory for launching my collection in the midst of the uNESCO World's Heritage Site.", said Le Thanh Hoa, fashion designer. "The Oriental Sun" is inspired by symbols of the sun and the most elegant Vietnamese women's attire of the French colonial era, and Paradise Elegance is the perfect match for my upcoming looks. I am preparing the best for this collaboration." The show will entail 30 to 45 looks presented by 15 famous Vietnamese models. It is expected to last about 45 minutes and be followed by live music. The Paradise Elegance, which measure 61 meters long and 13 meters wide and offer 31 spacious cabins, are one of the largest ever deployed in Halong Bay for overnight cruising. "Sure, size matters, but so does style and substance," asked Nguyen Cao Son, Paradise Vietnam's Chief Operating Officer. "Paradise Elegance has those qualities as well, which is what makes a partnership with Mr. Hoa such a perfect fit." "It's going to be an evening to remember," said Cao Son. "There's no doubt about it." To learn more about its cruise division including the April 20 fashion cruise, go to

The Spy When Mata Hari arrived in Paris, she was penniless. However, within months she was the most celebrated woman in the city. But as paranoia consumed a country at war, Mata Hari's lifestyle brought her under suspicion. In 1917, she was arrested in her hotel room on the Champs Elyseä and accused of espionage. Told from the perspectives of Mata Hari and her attorney, The Spy by Paulo Coelho tells the unforgettable story of a woman who dared to break the conventions of her time, and paid the ultimate price. Book sold at the Tiki bookstore. Price: VND53,000

Group Exhibition "Alluvium"


March 26 - 27



y Village is a delicate merge of tradition and innovation, where poetic beauty of Northern Vietnam's village life is presented under new circus approach. Farming, building, and playing traditional games, the lifestyle of Northern villagers is recreated using ancestral bamboo props, breath-taking acrobatics, and rhythmic dance, juggling, and distinct folk music played from more than 20 musical instruments. This show is great for a date as a later dinner after is in easy walking distance, or for a family event, so long as the children are not too young. Expect to be seated for well over an hour and for audience member to not appreciate a crying child. Ticket price: 630,000 - 2,000,000 (hanoi oPera house *1 Trang Tien, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi)

The exhibition features works by 11 Vietnam-based artists, and is divided into two sets. The first are those that look out into the wilderness, exploring elements that can be regarded as spiritual or alchemical, that go beyond the everyday sense "normal". Others have more of a human presence dealing with the many events that unfold between people. When these two worlds are brought together, an often overlooked impication of acontinuity between them arises- a suggestion of one whole "nature" that encompasses all things, human or otherwise, causes and effects alike.

Pacific Rim Uprising 10 years after the Battle of the Breach, Jake Pentecost, the son of the deceased former leader, Stacker Pentecost, made a promise to his father to join the Jaeger, a team of massive mechanized warriors and stand against the Kaiju, massive monsters plaguing the world. The global fight between the monsters who plan to destroy the world and giant man-made robots created to defeat these monsters promises to be a tough and dramatic battle since the monsters have now evolved tremendously since the previous film in terms of their physical and mental strength. The movie promises to satisfy every man's inner child. If anything like the first installment, expect ridiculous action and massive fight sequences that have more finesse than most recent Michael Bay movies, and probably more plot than the Transformer series, low bar that it is. It might not impress a lady on a first date, but it'll sure be a lot of pure action fun. Soon showing in CGV cinemas nationwide.



The show depicts the charming beauty and cultural richness of Vietnamese life in the countryside versus the country's racing urbanization. The show is a unique mix of bamboo cirque, acrobatic acts, contemporary dance, and theatrical visual art, all of which are used to create vivid stories and color palettes that are often found both in the city and village's life. The mesmerizing music is played live, and uses more than 17 musical folk and modern instruments. Ticket price: 630,000 - 1,470,000 (saigon oPera house *7 Cong Truong Lam Son, District 1, HCMC *Hotline: 0124 518 1188)

Green living space has gradually become the most popular type of home for city residents. Celadon City is the perfect choice for those who are looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city to find a home with natural setting that provides tranquility, yet is close enough to the city center for essential convenience and comfort. Fast development rates are turning big cities into unfeeling blocks of concrete. It has become an inescapable habit for city residents to get out of their boxy apartments in the morning, follow long streams of people heading toward luxury office buildings. At night, they then lie in their bed, and dream about waking up to a green vast open space and beautifully fresh air. Celadon City, a project with a mission to recreate and develop a modern urban area in harmony with nature, stands out with a harmoniously designed 16-hectare green landscape. Most areas in Celadon City are used for parks, lakes, and utilities, so residents can always enjoy themselves from entertainment complexes to relaxation centers in a space intergrated with natural setting at every corner. The walkways, which are covered under the shade of large trees, are located close to the lakes, and connect one complex to another from the sports complex considered largest in Vietnam, to cuisine - cafeteria area, to shopping malls as well as the cinema, creating a truly harmonious and luxurious living space in Saigon. Celadon City is opening the last block of the Emerald Apartment for sale with many attractive offers. The Emerald Precinct has all the golden points of a luxury living from welldesigned landscape, to extremely modern utilities, to beautiful interior. Apart from superior design, all units in Celadon City feature a balcony for its residents to enjoy the most natural living space filled with wind and sunshine, and a beautiful view of the surrounding landscape.

WHAT ARE BRANDED RESIDENCES? Still a foreign concept in Vietnam, Branded Residences have rapidly evolved in North America since the early 1980s, and are currently developing rapidly in Dubai, the dream city of the super-rich. Branded Residences is an architectural complex which includes a residential area located adjacent to a luxury hotel or serviced apartment with all the services and facilities managed by well-known hotel operators according to strict five star standards. In terms of architecture and design, these properties must adhere strictly to architectural rules from its own management brand, as well as according to agreed terms. This is the reason why large Branded Residences in the world feature unique designs with a luxurious touch in every details. Among hotels, resorts, and luxury villas, Branded Residences properties earn the most prestigious locations around the world, for example, the Armani Residences on Sunny Isles Beach in Miami, USA, the Bulgari Hotel & Residences in Knightsbridge in London, UK, and the Yoo Nordelta in central Buenos Aires, Argentina.

he high demand for these properties is based on the idea that wealthy property buyers want to not only gain ownership of a property, but also enjoy the benefits from the services it provides as well as from its potential profit. They want to, at the same time, experience a luxurious lifestyle managed by reputable and prestigious brands. It is understandable that customers often have to pay 29 per cent more for a hotel branded residence. Today, over 50 prestigious brands around the world have adopted this model, including Starwood, Fairmont, Aman, Hyatt Regency, W Hotels, Shangri-La, and Banyan Tree, as well as many luxury fashion brands such as Bulgari, Versace, Moschino, and Armani. Each has their own individual style, but the level of luxury standards is well-maintained.

EASTERN EUROPE, AN OLD WORLD CHARM Text: Hoang Le Giang, Bao Khuyen - Photos: Hoang Le Giang

My Eastern Europe trip was decided on the spur of the moment and without any planning. It was awesome to freely wander the streets, and enjoy the morning coffee and afternoon wine whenever I felt like it. What an amazing way to begin my 2018.



Eastern Europe has a charm that is utterly enticing to travelers like me. Geographically speaking, it is, in fact, Central Europe, but because it is located on the east side of the former Berlin Wall, it is has been since considered Eastern Europe. The countries in this region are slower in development than in the western part of the wall, presumably preserving their old world charm and a sense of tranquility. During the trip, I was lucky to catch a glimpse of the undeniable history, charm, and romance of Eastern Europe, from the fields that stretch far to the horizon, to picturesque corners, to beautiful cobblestone streets as well as ancient churchs and calm rivers. This land has a charm that is utterly enticing to travelers like me, those who love to wander about, take in the natural beauty of life, and dream about farflung corners of the Earth. The Eastern Europe trip fulfills a lifelong dream that I had and only knew about through old lyrics, pictures and films.

A pICTURESQUE VILLAGE FROM "THE LORD OF THE RINGS" I headed to a small village in southern Czech Republic, the Moravia region. Before my eyes, a breathtaking scenery unfolded which included the vast green hills and beautiful blue sky. Even if you open your eyes wide, the fields seem to stretch to infinity, all the way to the horizon. Some small houses and a herd of deer occasionally appeared and wandered into the picture. The scenery was so serene that it captured my soul. I was truly in awe of the open space of these fields. Only the winds could disturb this tranquility of nature. Moravia looks like it had come straight from a scene in the Lord of the Rings. The area is also known as Little Tuscany due to its Tuscan-like fields. I missed the most beautiful season here which was the ripe rice season, but I was happy nevertheless.





I love Eastern Europe for its picturesque sceneries, and old charm of the past that cannot be found anywhere else.

The sight of a chapel standing out in the middle of a vast field gave me a sense of peace that I had not known before. The chapel is the place that the locals go for prayer since most Eastern Europeans are Christian. As we approached the village, the vast rice fields were no longer in sight. They were replaced by tall chestnut trees and huge oak trees, or sometimes dwarfed Jerusalem thorn trees braving the strong winds. Villagers often burn oak for warmth during the cold winter. Situated on the hills are small villages, which can be easily recognized by the bell tower of a church or layers of smoke billowing out from their kitchen roofs. The villages are a great stop for travelers like us. A new friend whom I met at the village was kind enough to take us to see the old train. We waited at the station for the old train to arrive and took amazing photos of it. The train arrived and left so quickly before we knew it, bringing immediate movements and quickly returning its tranquility. Unplanned trips always turn out to be the most amazing and unforgettable. I was lucky to hear the church bells ring beautifully in the early morning, and see black smoke coming out from the kitchen roofs below. What a great way to start a new day. I was completely detached from the noisy and bustling world that I lived in. Instead I was worry-free about my future plans. I felt present right in the middle of the peaceful village, and here is where I will keep all of my beautiful memories. The sound of the church bell's ring signaled time for prayer, and the beginning of a new day, bringing me peace and warming my soul.

THE BRIDGE BETwEEN THE pAST AND THE pRESENT Eastern Europe presented to me two contrasting colors. One a peaceful and relaxing palette, and another that is ancient, and poetic. During this trip, I visited three big countries of Eastern Europe, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. The trip lasted almost half a month and I could not wish for more. I was free to let my soul roam around in remote villages and let myself become immersed in the history and romance of the cities. If you've been following me on my trips to the Himalayas and the Arctic, you will be surprised at why I chose such a peaceful trip this time! It is in fact, an important part of my life. I love Eastern Europe for its picturesque sceneries, and old charm of the past that cannot be found anywhere else. I visited Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic, the capital of Moravia. Since it is a big city, the amount of buildings and skyliners is substantial. But the most interesting thing about it is that it is detached from the old neighborhood, an area strongly preserved in terms of its architecture, color, and ancient features. From the route leading to the St. Matthias Church in Budapest (Hungary) to the wall in Bratislava (Slovakia), from Brno streets to alleys in Prague (Czech Republic), from the mellow Danube river crossing through the city of Budapest to the solid bridge over it. Every places that I visited in Eastern Europe kept me from ever wanting to leave. I was able to live a life of someone who had crossed to the other side of life. Every places that I went was so picturesque, and possess so much mystery of its past. I did not plan a single place, attraction or landmark to visit. I simply wandered around the old towns, enjoyed coffee, listening to music, and watching passersby. I sometimes simply stared at a lamp post, or a wall, or an old alley, feeling totally absent-minded. To me, that is what connects the past with the present.

VISA 単 Entry fees in some European countries are relatively inexpensive, and sometimes all you need is the Schegen Single entry visa which can get you into Greece, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Slovenia. To enter Croatia or Romania, you will either need a multiple entry visa, or enter these countries and fly back to Vietnam from there (you are not allowed to re-enter Schengen). For the Baltic countries such as Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, due to the recent economic growth, the visa fee is no longer as cheap as before, but it is still cheaper than the Netherlands, Italy, and Austria, and especially northern Europe. TRAVeL COSTS The cost for an Eastern Europe trip is quite reasonable. 単 Beverage: a fresh glass of beer costs 60,000VND, sometimes cheaper than bottled water. Tap water is safe to drink. 単 Food: a buffet meal costs from 200,000 - 400,000VND. Restaurant prices are equivalent to restaurant prices in Saigon and Hanoi. 単 Accommodation: An Airbnb property costs between 20 - 40 euros per night per room. A 4-star hotel room in Brno, Czech Republic, costs 75 euros per night for a 50m2 room with kitchen included. TRAVELLIVE

rior to arriving in Antwerp (Antwerpen in Dutch and Anvers in French), I had learned that the city got its unique name from a legend about a giant called Druon Antigoon. The giant exacted a toll from passing boatmen on the Scheldt river. Those who refused to pay had their hand cut off and thrown into the river by Druon Antigoon. The story of Druon Antigoon's monstrous deeds reached Silvius Brabo, a young Roman soldier. Silvius went on to defeat Antigoon, chop off the giant's own hand and toss it into the river to avenge his victims. Hence the name Antwerp, which means "throw the hand" in Dutch and Old English. At the city's Grote Market, you will find a statue of a young Silvius Brabo mid-throw, disposing of the hand of the evil Druon Antigoon. Antwerp was the last destination on my Amsterdam-BrusselsBruges-Ghent-Antwerp European tour in late 2017. Some might think I spent rather "too much time" in such a little known city of Belgium instead of visiting the popular Bruges - referred to as "The Venice of the North". My two-day stay in Antwerp did not do it justice, and I regreted not staying longer. If you are planning to explore this city, the second largest in Belgium in 2018, do not miss the following 10 things to do in Antwerp.

The station was voted as the world's most beautiful train station by Mashable Magazine in 2014. From here my trip to explore Antwerp began!

"Grote Markt" is a common name for big town squares in the cities of Belgium including Antwerp, and at the center of this one stands the statue of Silvius disposing the hand of the giant Antigoon. Behind the statue is the Antwerp City Hall built in the 16th century, and to the side of the hall are the typical gildenhuis townhouses of the Netherlands and Belgium.

The Gildenhuis are buildings overlooking the Grote Markt which were once used as headquarters and meeting places for the old trade guilds. Today however, they are used as the city's tourism offices and as small museums.

ADMIRE ANTWERP FROM ABOVE From the Grote Markt, a few steps away is the Cathedral of Our Lady. The cathedral was built in the 16th century with a 123m tall bell tower which is considered the tallest church bell tower in the Low Countries (including the Netherlands and Belgium). With such an impressise height, the bell tower took 169 years to complete. Looking out upon the city from the top of the tower, Antwerp and its orange roofs look like miniature toy models. ¸ Handschoenmarkt 13

WANDER IN THE SECRET ALLEY OF VLAEYKENSGANG The Vlaeykensgang alley dates back to the late 16th century, and connects Hoogstraat, and Oude Koornmarkt with one another. I decided to get there early in the morning when the city was still asleep. It took me a while to find this picturesque passage, but it was worth it.

Peter Paul Rubens was a famous 16th and 17th century Baroque painter from the Netherlands, and was a fan of Rafael's, the Italian painter.

On the Scheldt riverbank is the Steen Castle (Het Steen in Dutch). This is the oldest building in Antwerp, built back in the 11th century. Perhaps you are wondering why I spent only 30 minutes at Het Steen. Here stands the oldest sand clock in the world with the sand flowing for exactly 30 minutes each turn! At the entrance to Het Steen is a bas-relief of Semini, the Scandinavian God of youth and fertility. It is said that the women of the town all appealed to Semini when they desired children, thus inhabitants of Antwerp previously referred to themselves as "children of Semini". ¸ Steenplein 1

DISCOVER THE HISTORy OF THE PLANTIN-MORETuS MuSEuM The Plantin-Moretus Museum is located in the former residence and printing establishment of the 16th century French printer Christophe Plantin. He arrived in Antwerp in 1550, and in 1555, established the Officina Plantiniana printing house, the first book-printing and publishing house in the world. In 1876, Erward Moretus, a descendant of the Moretus, sold the entire house and printing company to the city of Antwerp, provided that it was turned into a museum to preserve his family's legacy. Since 2005, and to this day, the Plantin-Moretus Museum is the first museum in the world to be recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. ¸ Vrijdagmarkt 22

ENJOY MICHELIN-STARRED FRENCH FRIES Although named "french fries" in American English, Belgium is actually the home of the fried-potato dish that has become popular all over the world. French fries in Belgium are a cheap and popular street snacks. At 6 Euros, you can enjoy a huge portion of french fries with all kinds of self-served delicious sauces. What should be the reason to spend nearly 13 Euros for a serving of the french fries at the Frites Atelier Amsterdam, you might ask? Let me reveal to you that the owner of this french fries restaurant is Sergio Herman, a three Michelin-starred chef who had worked for over 20 years at a high-end restaurant in Zeeland, Netherlands. After years of cooking, Sergio decided to leave his kitchen to sell french fries. So, here I was in Antwerp having the opportunity to enjoy the most delicious fried potato in the world: French fries served with Flanders-style beef and mayonnaise. ¸ Korte Gasthuisstraat 32



TRy ANTWERP STyLE WAFFLES AND APPELBEIGNETS Belgium is famous for its waffle cakes, whipped cream cakes, and fruit with chocolate sauce. However, different regions of Belgium have their own unique version of waffles. My personal favorite was the Antwerp style waffles, which I ate at Däsirä de Lille, a small cafä and cake shop dating to 1903. I went to the shop twice in the afternoon, and it was crowded everytime I went. When you are in a strange city, and you visit a shop where you find yourself the only foreigner, you know you gotta come back a few more times! Antwerp style waffles are light and soft, and not as doughy and "heavy" as the Brussels style waffles. The waffle that I had was served with whipped cream, a vanilla ice cream scoop and drizzles of chocolate on top. The taste was exquisitely sweet and tantalizing. ¸ Schrijnwerkersstraat 16

Besides chocolate, Belgian biscuits are also beyond delicious. Biscuits here are usually shaped like a hand (handje) with a layer of thinly grated almonds on top. Some adorn a fake diamond ring on the hand to tell the story of the giant Druon Antigoon and the city's history in diamond making. At the end of my trip, my suitcase was filled with fragant vanilla and almond handjes bought from Philip's Biscuit, a charming shop found on Korte Gasthuisstraat. During the cold winter days, to sit with my partner by the fireplace and enjoy the handje with a hot tea is the best feeling in the world. ¸ Günther Wattä: Steenhowversvest 30 - Philip's Biscuit: Korte Gasthuisstraat 39.

GeT THeRe ñ From Brussels, you can take the train to Antwerp as the most convenient way to travel which takes about 45 minutes. Train ticket can be bought at the Gare du Midi (Gare Zuid) Station in Brussels. LANGuAGe ñ Antwerp is the second largest city in Belgium with a population of about half a million. The city is located in the Flanders region, so Dutch is their the primary language. However, local people speak English very well. SIGHTSeeING ñ Admission to the Rubensshuis Museum is 8 euros. If you present your train ticket to Antwerp within the day, the ticket costs only 6 Euros. ñ Admission for the Plantin-Moretus Museum is 8 euros. ñ From the Antwerp Central Station, you can take the metro to Meir Station to visit Rubensshuis, then walk to other attraction spots in the city. NOTe ñ If you are traveling in a group, keep quiet when you are in Vlaeykensgang since the alley is very small and has loud echo. ñ A serving at the Frites Atalier Amsterdam is quite generous, and can substitue dinner.

Vis it At 6 am on a beautiful summer day, I pushed the door open with excitement, tiptoeing my way out. The dawn was breaking, and the early morning mist lingered. The streets of Almafi were still empty, and very different from their usual buzzing scene.

Stretching over 25km and nestled in the Gulf of Salerno in the south of Naples, the coastline of Amalfi runs from Positano through the villages of Praiano, Amalfi, and Ravello to Vietri sul Mare. The Amalfi Coast was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, and is one of the most popular summer holiday destinations in Italy.

THE FIRST TIME I VISITED THE AMALFI COAST Having visited Amalfi years ago, the memory is still as fresh in my mind as if it was yesterday. I remember how I quickly fell in love with beautiful little villages on the mountainside, romantic sloping walkways, brilliantly colorful pottery shops, lush gardens in exquisite villas, and gorgeous flowers-filled balconies overlooking the azure Mediterranean Sea. The Amalfi Coast has everything that you could possibly want: from romantic beaches, to beautiful landscapes, to luxury resorts surrounding the area. For people who are keen on hiking, the Path of the Gods (Sentiero degli Dei) is a must-see, and I knew I would be back here to take a walk on this incredibly breathtaking trail. The Path of the Gods is a trekking trail spanning over 8km, beginning at Bomerano, Agerola and ending at Nocelle, the upper part of Positano - one of the most charming villages in the Amalfi Coast. The Path of the Gods is named after a mythological legend about the gods who come down to the sea to meet the sirens who enticed Ulysses with their singing. The path is a spectacular winding route with cliffs on one side, and the striking blue sea on the other. Almost any point along the path offers a tremendous view of Capri, the Li Galli Islands, a part of Sorrento Peninsula, and part of the Gulf of Salerno.

The Amalfi Coast has everything that you could possibly want from romantic beaches, to beautiful landscapes, to luxury resorts surrounding the area. TRAVELLIVE

The sun started to shine, and dew covered the whole mountainside. The deep blue Mediterranean sea and the striking coastline appeared before our eyes under the glistening sun. MEMORIES REVISITED After unsuccessful attempts to revisit the Amalfi Coast over the years, I was finally able to bring my family with me, but unfortunately we went during the peak of the hottest season of the year. Summer in Italy can be scorching hot and unbearable on the busy buses that connect the villages of Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and Agerola. We spent two days struggling under the crazy heat before deciding to go on a hike on the Path of the Gods, located on the southern slope of Mount Peruso. We headed out particularly early in the morning to avoid the the worst of the glaring sun. We arrived in Piazza Paolo Capasso of Bomerano, a small trail that lead us to the starting point of the Path of the Gods at an altitude of 650m. The sun was still low, and the early mist lingered above the surface of the sea, creating a thin layer of white clouds. From up there, we could see the small boats anchored together in a narrow space. Little stone houses could be seen from afar, hidden behind the pine trees and the ripening grapevines. At one point, I found myself walking right through the cold mist. The air warmed up as the sun rose, causing the mist to gradually lift and disappear. The sun started to shine, and dew covered the whole mountainside. The deep blue Mediterranean sea and the striking coastline appeared before our eyes under the glistening sun. The section from Agerola to Nocelle was a gentle slope, and we found it easy to walk down. There were high cliffs on one side, and the other was a vast space. Dozens of small yachts, looking like grains of rice floating in the water far bellow us, began to sail offshore pointed towards a horizon that was difficult to find. After about four hours of hiking, taking pictures, and sightseeing, we could see the white houses of Positano from afar. We reached Nocelle, a small village located on the upper part of Positano and, with that, our trail ended. From Nocelle, we continued down another 3km to catch an hourly bus to the harbor where we could get on a boat to get back to Amalfi. We realized that we still had a bit of time left before noon, so we wandered around town to enjoy the tiny streets and white walls which were typical of this coastal region. Positano is known as one of the most beautiful villages in the Amalfi Coast. The houses are layered like a staircase on a mountain, allowing every house to catch the cool sea breeze, and every balcony overlook the clear blue water and had ample warm sunshine. Anyone who has been to Amalfi once will always come back a second time!

TIMe TO TRAVeL ñ Amalfi is one of the most popular destinations in Italy and Europe. Prices in the summer are often sky-high, and the streets are crowded. It is best to visit the coastal town during the low season from October to May. GeT AROuND By public transportation ñ The nearest international airport is in Naples. Take a bus or taxi from the airport to Naples Central Station. Take a train from the Naples Central Station to either Salerno or Sorrento, the two big cities of the Amalfi Coast. Train ticket costs around 5-7 Euros, and can be purchased at the station. The train runs every hour. ñ From the Naples Central Station to the village of Amalfi (located in the center of the Amalfi Coast) or to the village of Agerola (the beginning of the Path of the Gods) take a SITA bus which will cost you about 5-7 Euros. This bus route is much less crowded than coastal bus routes, and you will find comfortable seats on it. ñ You can travel between villages of the Amalfi Coast by the SITA bus. Tickets are sold at the tobacco shops near the bus stops. You can check the bus schedule on this website: www. Bui HuyEn CHi A Hanoian girl, inherited from her family a passion for travel and photography. At the moment, Chi is living and working in southern France, where she continues to make trips around the world to explore all the continents. Chi set up a travel blog http://cherrytree. fr/ in 2017 to share her most memorable travel experiences and amazing photos.

ñ Several boats operate daily between Positano, Amalfi, Sorrento, and Capri. This is an interesting way to enjoy the scenery along the coast. Boat tickets are available for purchase at the port or can be booked via www.positano. com/en/ferry-schedule ñ Pros: No need to find parking. Bus stations are often located in the city center, making it convenient for tourists to visit the villages at a relatively low cost.

ñ Cons: During peak season, SITA buses are crowded and all the seats are full. You need to arrive early to queue up. The route around the area is short but winding, and often takes a lot of time. Standing in the bus may be uncomfortable. It gets quite hot on the bus during summer days since few buses have air conditioners, and you are not allowed to open the bus windows. There are not many buses (operating every 1 or 2 hours depending on different bus routes). ñ Hotels at the Amalfi Coast can be quite expensive compared to other places in Italy. It is difficult to find cheap accommodations near the bus stations during peak season. Tips ñ The train from Naples to Sorrento can also take you to Pompei and Herculanum. If you want to visit Naples and those 2 destinations, you can purchase a Campania Arte card (a 3 day or 7 day pass are both available). The 3-day ticket costs euro 21 with free or discounted admission to many Campania attractions and free travel on metro and buses within Naples and on several train lines, including the Naples - Herculanum - Pompei - Sorrento. This card can be purchased at Naples Airport and at some other locations (check www. for more details). By your own car - Pros: The coastal route along the Amalfi Coast is considered one of the most beautiful coastal routes in Italy with winding slopes that offer excellent views of the Mediterranean Sea. Self-driving allows you more freedom when traveling, and a lot more accommodation options. - Cons: The roads are often narrow with lots of winding sections and traffic jams. Locals often travel at high speed although the speed limit is only 30 km/h. It is difficult to find parking in the center of Sorrento and around the surrounding villages of Positano, Praiano, Amalfi, and Ravello.

WHAT TO DO IN THe AMALFI COAST ñ Wander in the most beautiful villages of Italy: Positano, Praiano, Amalfi, and Ravello. Positano and Amalfi might look similar to the 5 villages in Cinque Terre, North Italy, but they have their own charm and offer you many interesting places to explore. ñ Take a stroll on the small streets and visit many Italian icecream shops, beautiful pottery shops, and colorful souvenirs shops on the sides of the streets. ñ Watch sunset in one of the world's most beautiful locations (Sorrento, Positano). ñ Take a train from Positano to Amalfi and view the amazing coastline. ñ Go on trekking trails (Sentiero degli Dei, La Baia di Ieranto). More information on the trekking trails can be found at http://www.positano. com/en/e/footpaths-on-the-amalficoast-trekking ñ Take a walk in the lush gardens of ancient villas in Ravello (Villa Cimbrone, Villa Rufolo) ñ Enjoy the afternoon view of the Mediterranean Sea from the balcony of Italian restaurants and cafäs. ñ Go on diving boat trips, or visit Capri Island, Ischia Island, and the islands of Li Galli. ñ Go kayaking along the coast, and find yourself a secluded beach to enjoy. ñ Visit the citrus gardens of Sorrento. Limoncello (lemon liqueur) is a specialty of the Campania region.

Along with Shifen, the old village of Jiufen is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Taipei, Taiwan. It takes almost an hour to get to Jiufen from the city center, but the village is always filled with people. What makes this village so enticing to visitors, you might ask?


It was raining when I left the Zhongxiao Fuxing Subway Station to catch the bus to Jiufen. I tried anxiously to find the correct bus number, but soon realized my worry was unnecessary as a long line of people was already queueing up for bus route 1062. The line was surprisingly orderly as people patiently waited for the bus to arrive. If you do not travel with a card, simply deposit NT$80 for a one way fare. I decided to sit at the back of the line to enjoy the steamy dumplings I bought before getting on the bus, were I watched the rain pour against the glass window. The bus finally departed, and quickly took to the highway. Soon, the city was no longer in sight, and lush mountains appeared before me. The bus traveled for an hour on winding roads, and before we knew it, we had arrived in Jiufen. Most of the people, including me, got off at this stop.


CHARMING LITTLE ALLEYWAYS aipei is often known for its rainy weather, and Jiufen, being some 80km from the city and situated among the mountains, has an even higher amount of rainfall. It felt a little colder because of the rain, but it was only drizzling. I put on my hat, and put the umbrella away in my backpack, then headed to Jiufen, a must-see destination for visitors in Taiwan.

The small cobblestone trail on the mountainside led us to the entrance of the old village where shops on the two sides were decorated in beautiful colors. We were told that the village is often packed with visitors, especially on the weekends, but it was more crowded than what I had expected at 11am on a rainy Tuesday morning with a flock of visitors already wandering about. No wonder the bus runs in full service every 15 minutes from 6am to 7pm. You can imagine the number of visitors who come daily to this charming little village.

Jiufen Village is located among special terrain with cobblestone alleyways that slide along the mountainside overlooking the sea. On both sides of the road, close to one another, are hundreds of food, specialty, souvenir, and handicraft shops. The incredible number of shops entice customers to visit, regardless of the crowds. The colorful shops displayed all kinds of interesting items, enough to make you want to look at every little thing.

door. The rain finally ceased to fall, leaving the air nice and cool. The smell of the fragrant tea and the sight of the misty dew suddenly reminded me so much of Dalat. The sun shone briefly for a moment before disappearing completelty into the gray clouds. I sat there and savored that special moment. Streams of people quickly filled the cobblestone streets, but somehow, to my surprise, the old village still maintained a certain sense of serenity about it.


first followed the main road, but somehow I got lost, and wandered into the alleys. The place was so beautiful at every angle, and you could easily snap a picture with a breathtaking background. Do not hurry when you are here. Take a stroll, drink some tea while looking out to the sea, or visit a food stall to enjoy some steamy mantou. Or you could stop at a side porch to enjoy the delicious Taiwanese milk

tea, or buy the tiny lanterns with meaningful wishes written on them as souvenirs. The old houses had such a special charm. I took out my camera, and let myself get carried away in the picturesque alleyways. When I started feeling a little tired, I stopped at a small tea shop on the side of the road, and ordered some Oolong tea to enjoy with the pineapple cake I bought from next

Towards the late afternoon is when you can spot the red lanterns lighting up on the streets. That is also when Jiufen showcases its true beauty. Hundreds of lanterns can be seen lighting up the whole mountainside from afar. No wonder visitors to Jiufen often arrive in the village later in the day to watch this truly spectacular night scene. MAGICAL SETTING FOR PERIOD MOVIES With its breezy weather, convenient location with charming old houses in Chinese and Japanese architectural styles, and its all around romantic and tranquil setting, Jiufen is truly

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION + Get there: Jiufen and Shifen villages are two popular tourist destinations in Taipei. Tourists often visit both villages in one day. There are three ways for you to get to Jiufen from the city center. - Take the subway to Taipei main station, and transfer at Ruifeng Station (1 hour ride), then go to opposite bus station to catch bus route 827/856/788/1062 to Jiufen. - Take the subway to Taipei main station, transfer to the MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing, exit gate number 1, and take bus route 1062 to Jiufen. To return to Taipei, you can also take this route. Bus fare is NT$80 (about VND60,000) per trip. Journey time is 1 hour. - Share a taxi for groups of 3 at NT$200/person, which will take you straight to Jiufen. Journey time is 20 minutes. + Sightseeing

an enticing place to visit. The history of the village is an interesting story that dates back to the first years of the Qing Dynasty, when the isolated village housed nine families. Since trading was difficult at the time, the village would always request "nine portions" everytime shipments arrived from town. Hence the name Kau-hun meaning "nine portions" in Hokkien, which would later become the name of the village. The Japanese were the first to discover gold in Jiufen, and because of this important discovery, a large number of Japanese traveled there to live and work. The village later became inďŹ&#x201A;uenced by both Chinese and Japanese architectural style. Another reason that attracts so many visitors to this beautiful village is its inspiration behind famous movies. Jiufen was mostly forgotten for many years until it became a popular filming location for a number of high-profile films. With the success of Hou Hsiao-Hsien's "A City of Sadness", which won the Golden Lion award at the 1989 Venice Film Festival, and Studio Ghilbi's critically acclaimed anime "Spirited Away", Jiufen revived and started to attract thousands of visitors a day. For Ghilbi fans, this is a much-loved and must-visit destination. At the village, you will likely find many Japanese tourists as well as Ghibli characters sold as your favorite souvenirs from stuffed animals to key chains. The A Mei Tea House Tea House which appeared in the animated film is a popular spot to visit. I got on almost the last bus at the end of the day to return to Taipei City with regret for not staying the night. It would have been such an amazing experience to sleep in one of the old cozy houses in Jiufen, and watch the sunrise at the beach in the morning. My spending a little over half a day in Jiufen did not feel enough for me to explore the whole place.

Jiufen wakes up at 7am and the shops open from 10am to 8pm. To fully explore the village, you should spend at least 3 hours there. Interesting activities include visiting the ancient houses, enjoying tea, watching the sea or exploring charming alleys. If you have time, also visit Shifen, another equally popular old village, famous for its sky lanterns. Or you could visit the Houtong Cat Village, which is home to hundreds of cats, is a must-see for cat lovers. + Cuisine Enjoy authentic Taiwanese delicacies from dumplings, to fresh noodles, to beef noodles to premium Oolong tea in a teahouse that overlooks the beautiful beach. + Souvenirs There are many souvenirs include pineapple cakes, tea, tiny lanterns with good luck wishes or cute No-Face characters; Totoro with its super cute belly, and many other characters that appeared in the popular anime "Spirited Away". + Note The weather in Jiufen is often rainy and colder than most places, so bring an umbrella, wear warm clothing or bring a jacket which can withstand light rain.

Jiufen gave me such an unique sense of peace. The village's tranquil scenery is an unforgettable experience for visitors to Jiufen. I bought a few small lanterns, and some other cute items as souvenirs. I will return to this charming village and stay over night next time. As I sat on the bus with the rain drizzling, the red lanterns gradually faded and went out of my sight until they were just tiny dots before disappearing altogether after a turn. TRAVELLIVE

ETHI PIA A Belgian photogragher took a long and emotion-filled trip to Ethiopia. "Ethiopia is truly a wonderful country to explore and leave with the most unforgettable experiences." The story and photos from the trip belong exclusively to Travellive. Text and photos: Pascal Mannaerts

Above photos: Hamer women arrive at the weekly market in Tumi market

Ethiopia is truly a world apart, a country I had read about in my teenage years and that had been on my bucket list for a very long time. I will always remember the night we landed in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. It was like a dream come true.

smiles, and a joy for life that I have not seen anywhere else.

All that I had imagined for years about this enchanting land was coming to life, right from when we took our first steps in the capital.

We were first headed to the South of Ethiopia, to the Omo Valley, to meet the Hamers, Mursi, Karo, Surma and Bodi tribes.

Majestic and overwhelming, Ethiopia is Africa in all its magic and wonder. An outstanding country with tribal areas in the South, that seem to have remain unchanged since the dawn of humanity. The North of the country offers monolithic churches that defy understanding of contruction, obelisks and castles from the past, and authentic religious processions. Ethiopia is a country filled with buzzing markets, wonderful sounds, friendly

Mursi people live in a remote area of Ethiopia. They live in perfect harmony with the environment. They form a homogeneous group, governed by ancient beliefs and rituals. They have little interaction, peaceful or otherwise, with the other peoples of the region and fight fiercely with spears and assault rifles against cattle rustling and kidnapping of women perpetrated by other peoples in their territories.

They quarrel regularly with Hamers. The Mursi attach great importance to the intra-tribal harmony. They gather in remote villages on the marshy banks of the Omo River, where the presence of the tsetse fly is less. Their huts are thatched and small.

tHE nortH CHristian arEa Visiting the north of the country, we found ouselves lost in the medieval world and stonecarved churches of Lalibela, where a fuzzy line was drawn between the past and the present by Christian ceremonies that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. Lalibela is a place full of grace, with a timeless energy floating in the air. Pilgrims flocking to the town across the country often are dressed entirely in white, creating a truly spectacular scene and adding to the town's enchanting beauty. We stayed a few days in Lalibela to visit different churches and explore the amazing nature that surrounded the city. We met a lot of people in town, who were very friendly and welcoming toward us. There are some places on Earth that you will tend to leave with regret for leaving that one will never forget. Lalibela is one of those places. St. George Church in Lalibela. Lalibela is a monastic city located 2630 meters above sea level on the southwest flank of the mountains of the former province of Lasta, in the present Amhara region in Ethiopia. The holy city of Orthodox Christians in Ethiopia, it is famous for its eleven monolithic medieval cave churches carved into the rock. The most famous is Bete Giyorgis (St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church), eight centuries old.

GeTTING THeRe ñ There are several airlines providing flights to Ethiopia. Turkish airlines, Ethiopian airlines are some of the best options to fly to the capital Addis Ababa, from almost all parts of the world. You will probably need to transit in Istanbul (Turkey) or Cairo (Egypt). MOVING AROuND IN THe COuNTRY ñ Book a tour by jeep with driver, with a local agency based in Addis Ababa, to explore the South of the country. The South of Ethiopia is the real adventure, so you can't do it on your own as the public transport are rare and limited. ñ Organize your trip in the South of the country



according to the weekly markets day in the villages if Dimeka, Key Afar, Jinka and Turmi. It is a perfect way to meet the tribes in their daily life. ñ For the North of the country, transport and accommodation are much easier and can be organized by independently. There are also different domestic flights available with Ethiopian airlines, to travel from a place to another in the North of Ethiopia. ñ Harar is easily reachable by place or bus from Addis Ababa. A lot of accommodations are available there. eTHIOPIAN FOOD ñ Don't forget to try the "injera", is a sourdough-

risen flatbread with a unique, slightly spongy texture. It is the national dish in Ethiopia. ñ Ethiopia is also very famous for its delicious coffee and beers. Coffee production in Ethiopia is a longstanding tradition which dates back to dozens of centuries. IN THe CAPITAL ADDIS ABABA ñ Attend a jazz concert in one of the numerous jazz cafäs to find in the capital Addis Ababa ñ Chill out and go for shopping in the Mercato, a sprawling market in Addis Ababa. It is considered to be Africa's largest market. A visit to the market is a fascinating experience.

Harar unEsCo World HEritagE City There is a spiritual dimension in every relationship

At the very end of our 5 weeks trip, we drove to the legendary city of Harar. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2006, Harar is a city of its own, where time seems to have left the area forever hundreds of years ago. Located at an altitude of about 1,885 meters and 525 kilometers east of the capital Addis Ababa, Harar is the commercial center of the Harari region and has about 150,000 inhabitants. With 102 sanctuaries and nearly 100 mosques, some dating back to the 10th century, Harar is considered the fourth most sacred city of Islam. Over the centuries, the influences of African and Islamic traditions have made this city unique in the world, with its unique character and architecture. There are more than 362 narrow streets at the heart of town, which covers a single square kilometre. The old quarter also houses some 82 mosques, making Harar the city with the highest concentration of mosques in the world.

PasCal MannaErts BelgiaN photographer "I am a Belgian photographer and travelled through the country by jeep, with a friend and a driver, for 5 weeks. I have travelled around the whole world but I can say that this experience in Ethiopia remains for me an experience of a lifetime. It was truly unforgettable! For more of my work, have a look at my website"

With its particular character and architecture, animated markets, crumbling walls and charming people, a visit to Harar is a step back in time. The houses in the old area of Harar are the most spectacular aspect of the city's cultural heritage. The traditional houses always feature a courtyard and exquisitely designed interiors. The majority of these traditional houses have been preserved. Ethiopia is truly a visit-worthy and wonderful country to explore and leave with the most unforgettable of experiences! TRAVELLIVE

From a young age I had always wanted to set foot on farflung corners of the Earth. Chile's Atacama Desert is a place that I happened to discover by chance, and I was in awe of its surreal landscape. I could not wait to get on a plane and explore this astonishing land of sand and rock.

As soon as we landed, I was overwhelmed with the hot and dry temperature of Atacama. It was difficult to breathe under such arid conditions. Atacama has not seen any significant rainfall for over 400 years. OVeRwHeLMING MARS-LIKe deSeRT Having never been to any desert before this trip, I was overwhelmed with the hot and dry temperature of Atacama from the moment I stepped off the plane. It was difficult to breathe under such arid conditions, especially for someone coming from the tropics. I began to get a quick glimpse of what it is like to live in an extreme and barren place like Atacama. I was definitely not used to traveling to places with such harsh conditions, and at the same time, found a new respect for people who can adapt and live in those environments. Located in northern Chile, Atacama is the driest desert in the world, and is considered the Mars on Earth. The low annual precipitation combined with high air pressure from the mountain range at the altitude of over 3,200m above sea level make the sky in the area extremely clear, and Atacama an ideal spot for some

of the world's best telescopes. I was told that this is the world's most beautiful place for astronomical observatory. One of the highlights during my trip was to catch sight of a guy cycling under the scorching sun and heat of Atacama, where no significant rainfall had been seen for over 400 years from 1570 to 1971. It took him tremendous strength to push the bike up the steep while I was sitting comfortably in a car. I quickly took my camera out to snap a picture of the guy in his glory. Later, I saw a father taking his child on a bike ride around town with bright smiles on their faces. The brightest I have ever seen in my life. Before traveling to Atacama, I went to find inspiration from the book "Nµo, m◊nh cÔng Æπp xe Æ’n Paris" (Come on, let's cycle to Paris) by Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan. The story is an incredible journey of Ngan and her amazing courage to overcome a great deal of challenges to eventually make it to Paris.



THe INCRedIBLe LANdSCAPe Of ATACAMA Despite the desolate, arid wilderness, the Atacama desert is one of the most astonishing places on Earth. We spent three full days of our South American trip in Atacama to admire its vast, rocky, white salt pan and volcanotopped horizons. My trip was made even more memorable by the company of new friends. We wandered the town together and experienced so many wonderful things. The pictures we took will always tell of our beautiful time at Atacama. We stayed at a cozy homestay hidden away in a small alley with a pretty coffee shop nearby. I passed by the coffee shop everyday looking at its empty but light-filled garden thinking that I would love to enjoy a cup of coffee and read a book there. However, the crazy hot sun and dry winds did not permit us. We mostly stayed indoors to avoid the high temperatures. I later regretted not visiting the pretty coffee place! Besides the jagged, rust-colored ravines, and white salt pans, Atacama has many traditional villages close to one another. The houses have walls made of earth, grass roofs and blue wooden windows, creating a truly magical Atacama. Along the streets, at every corner of the town, were many restaurants that serve local delicacies. Because of its remote location, the prices for food and beverages are quite high. An average meal including drinks costs from USD10 to USD15. You can find a number of shops and markets in town that sell a wide range of local produce. First impressions are always the most memorable. When we got in the taxi that took us around town, my eyes were wide open as I tried to take in the incredible beauty of Atacama. From the reddish earth houses, to the tiny flower fields, to the windy desert, it was a truly spectacular scene. By the time we arrived in town I had built up so much excitement that I could not wait to run outside to take everything in.

The houses have walls made of earth, grass roofs and blue wooden windows, creating a truly magical Atacama.

I recommend all travelers to Atacama to capture at least one picture of themselves against the breathtaking landscape even if you had never taken a selfie. Atacama is one of those rare places with amazing beauty that you will likely not find anywhere else on Earth. Chile was recently ranked ďŹ rst among top countries to visit in 2018 by the Lonely Planet.



VISA ñ Vietnamese tourists are now granted a visa exemption into Chile. GeT THeRe ñ From Ho Chi Minh City, you will transit in Korea and Canada. The flight costs over USD1,600 and takes over 40 hours to get to Santiago de Chile, the capital of Chile. A short domestic flight (about 1 hour and costing USD50) will take you to Atacama. FOOD ñ Cuisine in Atacama in particular, and Chile in general, is influenced by Spanish cuisine with a European taste. Enjoy the BBQ with wine when you are in Atacama. + STAY ñ Atacama offers different choices of hostels and hotels. As long as your luggage is not too heavy, you can wander around before finding yourself a pleasant and affordable place to stay. I stayed at the Hostal El Anexo, a 5 minute walk to town for USD12 per night. COST ñ If departing from Ho Chi Minh City, the trip to Atacama costs around USD2,200. Since Atacama is at a remote location, try to combine the region's neighboring countries such as Bolivia and Peru in your journey.

HANOIAN STYLE TRADITIONAL FAMILY MEAL Text and photos: Ngoc Tran - Food stylist: Nu Hau Tuoc





traditional Vietnamese family meal consists of a soup, a few main dishes, and pickled firecracker eggplants or pickled vegetables. The balance between saltiness, sourness, and freshness is important. The men in the family often enjoy traditional rice wine before the meal. A home-cooked meal in the Hanoian style is rather simple, but still meets all the basic requirements. A typical dish on the homecooked menu is boiled pork cut into thin strips with both the skin and fat layers intact, which is then to be dipped into fermented shrimp sauce and eaten with pickled firecracker eggplants. Adding some slices of sour starfruit would make the dish perfect. Another typical

Hanoian dish is fresh tofu bought from Mo Village, which is then deep-fried until golden-brown, and then soaked in fish sauce with spring onions - a popular childhood dish that any Hanoian would remember. However, the most sophisticated dish is cua dong soup (a type of fresh water crabs found mostly in Vietnam). Although it is a simple dish to make, the difficult part is to get the crab innards to create a layer on the surface of the soup. The dish is considered delicious when you can smell its beautiful fragrance from afar. A family meal is usually cooked by the women in the family, who often tackle the task with their heart and soul. Any Vietnamese who live far from home always miss having traditional family meals cooked by their beloved mothers and grandmothers.

The kite festival began thanks to the presence of March's strong winds in Thailand, and has been celebrated annually ever since. The festival, which was initially held simply to preserve Thai culture and traditions, has expanded into a spectacular festival that promotes Thailand's tourism and provides a perfect haven for kite lovers to gather and meet each other.



Bisket Jatra is an annual event celebrated for nine days in Bhaktapur, Nepal with rituals and activities to mark a New Nepali Year. The festival begins with the carrying of the statues of the two gods, the male Bhairava and the female version Bhadrakali, in two huge chariots to a large square for people to pray for good luck in the new year.

Across many parts of the world, St. Patrick's Day is a global celebration of Irish culture to remember St. Patrick, Ireland's patron saint. People celebrate by going to churches, dressing in green, and wearing three-leaf clover accessories to wish for good luck. Legend has it that St. Patrick used the three-leaf clovers to explain the Christian Holy Trinity with each leaf representing the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
