This gold dot silk frilly wrap dress was one of the first pieces we ever stocked. We still do and it is still a firm favourite.


I myself live in mine all summer long, including all the vacays throughout the year. It's become kind of my statement dress, just like my transparent sandals I've been wearing for the last 10 years. I have to get a couple of pair every year because I wear them so much, and I'll let you know... they are not easy to come about.

NATURE NATURE NATURE. You city people know what I am talking about when I say I say I crave myself some green and lush nature and clean air. Absolutely marvelous.

You see how my breakfast plate will steadily grow as the holiday progresses. Too much yumminess to resist. YUM!

We cicled to An Bang beach, which was a bit further down from Cua Dai. It was hot and sweaty, but great after the massive breakfast and totally worth it.


How AMAZING is this beach? Finally, paradise. An Bang is my kind of beach. Hot water, boiling weather, not crowded at all and cool little beach bars. Perfect.

After a quick bath we went for a stroll down the Old Town, again, and we had dinner at our now favourite Italian, Good Morning Vietnam, again. Just as good as the first time.

Back at An Bang, we are creatures of habit. Why change what we love. Had another great day at the beach. I would suggest to those of you going, to head a bit further down the beach where it is a little less crowded and the restaurants are way better.


We had lunch and a few beers in a little hut. I went for the seafood noodles. Yes, they were instant noodles, which I haven't had in years but love, so it was a bit of a treat. T went for the seafood rice, because he is addicted to fried rice.

After the last spot of sun at the beach, as much as our now very dark skin could tolerate, we went for a stroll around town. It is even more beautiful than at night.

We hit the street food stalls and let me tell ya, it was a million times better than the fancy Pho we had a couple of days before.

We had to be shown how to eat it. You get a paper wrap, get the meat in there, some veg and hot sauce and your set to go. Delicious. YES.

Nice and sunny!


It's day two and we started off with a really self-imposed-controled breakfast. I literally go crazy at breakfast, there is just something about a hotel breakfast buffet. But I was good.


We walked around the hotel and the beach, fell asleep on the beach, and woke up feeling rather toasted and looking a few shades darker. Remember kids, sunscreen. We were bad, and didn't.

The man, looking positively darker.

Our hotel beach wasn't the best, so we cicled to a beach a few kilometres down to meet our friends from Portugal, who were traveling through Vietnam.
