I adore Vietnam. In 2011, I finished up the exhausting but exhilarating Ultimate Train Challenge in Saigon after spending a day in Hanoi and taking the train down the length of the country. I spent a few weeks relaxing in Saigon, vowing to return for more coffee and street food.
The day to return came in 2018, when I decided to rent a place in Hoi An. Although I had planned to stay for two+ months, I ended up leaving after six weeks for reasons more personal than geographical.
For me, Vietnam remains home of the best coffee and street food in the world.
