  4. I went to Vung Tau beach with my best friend for a long weekend. I opted for Vung Tau beach because It's considered a worth-living coastal city. We did some picturesque sightseeing there and took a photo together in order to keep the memorable moments on our trip. You know, the landscape here extremely stunning and dramatic. Then we hit the beaches and swimming. we additionally went to the restaurants, cafes and sampled as much of the local cuisine as especially seafood like lobster, oyster, clam, basket-clam, and so on. it's a fascinating place but the weather here quite hot in the daytime, it's a little bit for me so as to skincare and take part in a few games. However, I hope that one day I can come back here to be immersed in a super coastal city.

  5. Thanks a lot for your video. I think it is so useful for everyone to learn English. Now i want to practice your lesson. Hi Gina and Jack. I had a journey to go to Japan for a couple of weeks.

    during last vacation i go to province because visiting me at grandma and mom with me,it took us two weeks

  7. Last summer I went to Cat Ba Island with my family for 3 days. Mostly, we hung out along the beaches and the streets nearby. We also rode bicycle, went to restaur!ants and cafes and sampled as much of the local cuisine as we could fit in our stomach! It's summer so the atmosphere is quite hot and crowded which made me feel a little overwhelming. But the best thing was the food such as: Banh da cua, banh xeo, kem dua …. which was out of this world. I loved Cat Ba, because of its hospitality and unique scenery. I wasn't so keen on Hai Phong which is a cool place but it's a bit suffocated and touristy for my tastes. Although if i have a chance, i will go back there because there are some activities i haven't tried before.

  8. I went to Thailand with my family for ten days. We did some sightseeing. Mostly we hit the beaches, enjoying the sunlight, and sampled lots of local food in Pattaya. Pattaya is a dramatic place, but a little bit of overwhelming because there was so much going on.

  9. My last vacation I went to Quang Nam province with my group of friends in my 18's birthday. I feel very interesting because that trip was the first trip we enjoy together. In addition to, Quang Nam is a great destination because it's very sleepy, fascinating and unique. Futhermore, the foods are so nice such as Cao Lau. Mi Quang,….I regret having only 2 days in there, I wish we had more time to explore that beautiful province. Anyway, we had memorable moments together in there. If we have a chance, we will visit Quang Nam again.

  10. I've been to Da Nang province in a couple of years ago, may be i was at grade 9th with my immediate family. We went sightseeing in there such as Ba Na Hills, Hoi An Ancient Town and so on. Apart from that, there were as much food as be suitable our tastes, for example :' Bun cha Hoi An; Quang nuddle; Banh Xeo Hoi An and many things. During the daytime, you know, the weather was quite warm and cozy and having slightly bright sunlight. It made me energetic, comfortable. We went on cycling tour with a guide around the city and went up to the top of stunning mountains, so that we could see all the city in here.Wow! what a fascinating scenery! The atmosphere of Da Nang was relaxing! But in the night was so different that i was overwhelming. We hit the cub and we've had fun, but I think it was quite cosmopolitan. The thing that I dislike was that the temperature is low at night.

  11. My last vacation I went to Algarve with my wife, for 5 days.
    On other vacations I went to Venezuela for 1 month, I went to several beaches with my family.
    I always adore going to the beach, it is one of my favorite places.

  12. My girlfriend and I went to DANANG for a long weekend. We did some sightseeing in DaNang: HOI AN, Chua Linh Ung, BA NA hill …. DANANG has four bridges and it is very beautiful and romantic at night so we often walk around it. I really like Hoi An, it is picturesque, sleepy village on the bank of Thu Bon river . Hoi An is considered as a living museum of architecture and urban lifestyle. Most tradition houses here are the combination of different architectures from different cultures such as Chinese, Janpanese, French, and of course Vietnamese style . I liked the people I meet – everyone was so open and welcoming. It's a cool place and i hope to be able to go there again.

  13. I traveled to Vung Tau city with my boyfriend for a couple of days. We went swimming on picturesque beach, enjoyed fresh atmosphere and sampled lots of local foods. Especially, we also visited some great places such as Nuoc Ngot mountain pass, Christ the King, Lighthouse,… where to see Vung Tau generally from the high level and waited the sun went down gradually in a dramatic afternoon.
    Vung Tau is the best city of Vietnam you should visit but it was crowded at famous areas, traffic jam made me annoy. So, I wish I’d explored more peaceful scenery here.

  17. I went to Zagreb with my roomate during the last vocation, which lasts only 2 days to have a break. Altough then we still having fun there. We live in a 3 storey terraced hause, its cosy and comfortable, but its quite drafty in the night. We are arriving at 14:00 in the afternoon and after we put our package in the room, we are going to do a sightseeing in the city. We travel by ourselves instead of go on a tour with guide, so that we can take our steps slowing down and immerse the peaceful feeling. The transpotation is not bad. We enjoy our short break in Zagreb, especially i was so keen on the food, which is cheap and delicious. So we sample the diffrent varies of food. no disappoiting. I also like the market and the old Architectural style that i felt like being an old film. If i have time ,i will travel again.

  18. Hi Jack and Gina, thank you so much you helped me a lot, lots of health and happiness for you guys, keep it up!

  19. I and my boyfriend went to Nam Du island for long weekend 3 years ago. It's the picturesque island in the South of Vietnam. We was surprised by the general atmosphere and the beaches. We didn't book a tour guide because we wanted to explore this place by ourselves. Therefore, we rent a motorbike and did sightseeing around the island. Seeing the sunset in the mountain was the best which was like nowhere I'd ever been before. Wild wind with purple sky and stunning beaches behind, we felt like being in a dream. Moreover, people in here are very simple and welcoming, if you want to buy something, you don't need to bargain like others. My boyfriend and me sampled as much of local seafood as we could fit our stomach. It was unbelievable because it was so cheap. I loved Nam Du and I will comeback another day. I wish it could be still sleepy and peaceful.
