"Hello... paper lantern?" If you take a walk around Hoi An at night, you would surely get to meet these lovely old ladies selling paper lanterns, and inviting guests to join their small boats floating around the sparkling old town to release those lanterns. Would you give it a try?

Saigon is such a paradise for street photographers. 
Since supermarkets are too mainstream now, have you ever seen this mini-market? And how many types of product can you spot? 
Please leave a comment. 🍶🍗🍎

Mr Đường, 88 years old now, has spent 63 years of his life carrying water from Ba Le Well - a very famous well in Hoi An. He sets the record for "The oldest water carrier in Vietnam".
"Until now, I can't even know how many buckets and carrying poles that I have used. I'd only replace when one of them is totally broken. If you calculate the distance that I have traveled, I must have gone around the world already", he said with a proud smile.

Saigon Holy Tower of Caodaism

Caodaism is a monotheistic religion officially established in the city of Tây Ninh in Southern Vietnam in 1926. Cao Dai, literally means the "Highest Lord", is the supreme deity that created the universe. The symbol of the faith is the Left Eye of God (The Divine Eye). The father of the universe, Cao Đài, is believed to have talked with men since the beginning of times, revealing his will. 
So history is divided into three times of revelation. In the first two periods, there were teachings of Buddha and Jesus, and founded their respective religions to serve and educate humanity. Caodaists also believe that former revelations were culture-bound, being applicable only for certain ethnicities and ages. The third and final form of revelation is disclosed through the teachings of the Cao Đài faith. 
Unknown to most outsiders, Joan of Arc is worshipped in the Caodaism. She guided the Faith at its inception and promoted full equality for women. They also have many other well-known figures, including Muhammad, Moses, Louis Pasteur, Shakespeare, and Lenin. Victor Hugo is probably the most important European figure to play a role in Caodaism, since he gave many teachings and prayers.

If you're looking for a new religious aspect of Saigon to explore, definitely do pay this one a visit, at: No. 891 Tran Hung Dao Street, District 5.

Saigon has a huge diversity of shellfish, which is called "Oc" in Vietnamese, and District 4 is very well-known for the best Oc in town. Here, how about some boiled snails, stuffed with pork and mushrooms, dipped in a mouthwatering sweet fish sauce with lemongrass... Is that tempting enough to wake your inner omnomnomnivore up? :) #xotours #vietnam #xotoursvietnam #foodie #seafood #shellfish #saigon #seafoodinsaigon #saigondistrict4 #snails #bestseafoodintown
Phat Diem Stone Cathedral, from Ninh Binh, Vietnam. 
While planning your trip to Ninh Binh, you must have found thousands of photos of Trang An with the Kong Skull Island filming location, Tam Coc with beautiful rice terraces and ancient caves, or Bai Dinh Pagoda with a 36-ton bronze bell on its Bell Tower... but have you ever heard of this old architectural masterpiece? 
Phat Diem Stone Cathedral, one of the most beautiful churches in Vietnam, was built in 1875, located about 30 km away from Ninh Binh city center. This is also known as the Capital of Vietnamese Catholicism, and still pending for its World Cultural Heritage Certification from UNESCO. What makes it unique is that even though it's a Catholic church, its whole architecture is inspired by Vietnamese traditional temple and pagoda architecture! 
So, if you are looking for an off-the-beaten-path destination for the next trip to Ninh Binh, this is the perfect choice for you.

A corner in our beautiful Hoi An at dusk. 
Hoi An attracts millions of visitors every year but few get an opportunity to see the real Hoi An, outside of the touristy Ancient Town. Our Hoi An Tours offer one-of-a-kind itineraries that focus on the local people, how they go about their daily lives, and the dishes that they eat every day.

Craving for some real local street food yet, my friend? Check out our Walking Food Tours in Hoi An here: www.xotours.vn/hoi-an/

Only 3 days left to the Mid Autumn Festival here! 
It's called "Trung Thu" in Vietnamese, or also traditionally known as Moongazing Festival, a happy occasion especially for children. To us, Trung Thu is all about family reunion, tasty moon cakes, colorful lanterns, and exciting lion/ unicorn dance. Yes, that's what a unicorn looks like in Asia. 
How about you, my dear fellow Moongazers around the world? What are your best memories of Trung Thu?
