Weekly Travel Photo

I post a weekly photo every friday of where I've been. It's in chronological order though it maybe behind a few months, depending on my travels.

Ben Thanh Market, Ho Chi Minh City – Vietnam

Ben Thanh Market

Saigon is collecting a fair selection of rooftop bars, and one of the best views of the city can be found at OMG, next to the Ben Thanh Market. Get here around 5pm for happy hour and you can watch the skyline light up as the evening approaches. It’s also a good spot to do […]

Hoai River, Hoi An – Vietnam

Hoai River, Hoi An – Vietnam

Tourist boats along the waterfront of the old quarter in Hoi An, Vietnam. This was my third visit to Hoi An and it still manages to charm. Since I was last here the city has introduced a town tax, so when you walk into the old town you pass a booth and must pay 120,000 […]

My Khe Beach, Da Dang – Vietnam

My Khe Beach, Da Dang - Vietnam

I visited Da Nang for a weekend break from Saigon via a cheap flight from VietJet Air. Living in the tropical south I forget that in central and northern Vietnam they have seasons where it gets cold. I arrived in Da Nang on a cold (by my reckoning) and drizzly day. Despite that I still […]

Dragon Bridge, Da Nang – Vietnam

Dragon Bridge

The Dragon Bridge crosses the Han River in Da Nang, Vietnam. Apparently the bridge breathes fires every night at 9pm, but I didn’t get to see it. Travel Photos: Da Nang photo gallery

Vietnam Railways Building, Ho Chi Minh City – Vietnam

Vietnam Railways Building

I’ve been wandering around Saigon taking photos of old buildings that are fast disappearing. The latest building that is marked for demolition is the Vietnam Railways Building at the Ben Thanh roundabout. My previous featured photo in Saigon was of the Tax Trade Centre which is also due to be demolished. Travel Photos: Ho Chi […]

Telephone box and Battersea Power Station, London – England

Phone Box - London

One of my favourite buildings in London is the Battersea Power Station. After years of dereliction the power station will soon become apartments. Almost as redundant as a coal-burning power station are the iconic red telephone boxes of the UK. With most people now owning a mobile phone they are no longer serving their purpose. […]

Terminal 2 CDG, Paris – France

Terminal 2 CDG, Paris – France

The stunning Terminal 2 at Paris CDG Airport. This is home base for Air France who I flew with a guest from South America, connecting to London. Travel Photos: Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport photo gallery

Eiffel Tower sunset, Paris – France

Eiffel Tower Sunset

Watching the sunset behind the Eiffel Tower from the Pont Alexandre III. Travel Photos: Paris photo gallery. I was a guest of Air France who I flew with from South America, connecting to London.

Palacio Salvo, Montevideo – Uruguay

Palacio Salvo

Montevideo is filled with architectural gems from the early 20th century, with my favourite being the Palacio Salvo. This building was finished in 1928 and was for a time the tallest building in South America. Travel Photos: Montevideo photo gallery

Hand of Punta del Este, Uruguay

Hand of Punta del Este, Uruguay

The Hand of Punta del Este (Mano de Punta del Este) is a sculpture at Brava Beach in Punta del Este, Uruguay. The hand (by Chilean artist Mario Irarrázabal) has become the landmark image of Punta del Este, and I’ve even seen it as the representative icon of Uruguay in some tourist brochures. Punta del […]
