JC – Vietnam Pt 19 – Hanoi Cost of Living & Final Thoughts
What are the costs of living in Hanoi? Is Vietnam a good or bad place to live? Hopefully we answered these questions and more. Our RetireCheap.Asia membership site - REAL life details you need to live in SE Asia / Thailand plus connect with other like-minded people at: http://goo.gl/M0nMT5 Turns out a RIPper (Retiree in Paradise) living in Hanoi can get by on a Cat 1 budget with a decent lifestyle! We had a great time in Vietnam and we are wrapping up our trip in this episode. We really enjoyed experiencing Vietnam and getting to know its people. I feel we really got the sense of what it is like to live in Vietnam during our journey around the country. I know can finally answer the question, “what would life be like living in Vietnam as a retiree?” And the answer is “awesome”! And we never really felt like we were visiting a Communist while in Vietnam. So thank you for coming along with us on our journey and if you get the chance I suggest you check out Vietnam as a retirement destination. Just don’t drive while there! Hanoi (Vietnamese: Hà Nội), the capital of Vietnam, and also its second largest city, is a fascinating blend of East and West, combining traditional Sino-Vietnamese motifs with French flair. It is largely unscathed from the decades of war, and is now going through a building boom, making it a rapidly developing city in Southeast Asia. Hanoi has held the title of Vietnam's capital for more than a thousand years, through several invasions, occupations, restorations, and name changes. The Nguyen Dynasty gave the city its modern name of Ha Noi in 1831, but they had transferred power to Hue by then; it remained there until 1887, when the French made Saigon and then Hanoi the capital of all French Indochina. It changed hands again in 1954, when it was ceded to Ho Chi Minh and the Viet Minh after almost a decade of fighting, and it became the capital of North Vietnam; Saigon was the rival in South Vietnam. Upon reunification in 1976, it assumed that title for the entire country. The climate is tropical, with wet and hot weather much of the year. But due to the city's latitude, temperatures drop drastically in the wintertime and the wind chill and dampness means winter weather can feel cold. If possible, avoid the summer months of mid May to mid September, as the city turns into a sweltering sauna with little to no wind.

Marble Mountains or the "five elements mountains" are a cluster of five marble and limestone hills located in Ngũ Hành Sơn District, south of Da Nang city in Vietnam. The five mountains are named after the five elements: Kim (metal), Thuy (water), Moc (wood), Hoa (fire) and Tho (earth). All of the mountains have cave entrances and numerous tunnels, and it is possible to climb to the summit of Mt. Thuy. Several Buddhist sanctuaries can also be found within the mountains, making this a famous tourist destination. The area is famous for stone sculpture making and stone-cutting crafts. Direct rock extraction from the mountains was banned recently. Materials are now being transported from quarries in Quảng Nam Province.

JC's Conversation with Teens in Hue Vietnam
We spent a few days in Hue, Vietnam and in this episode of our Vietnam adventure I want to show you just how friendly the younger generation is and how well the younger generation speak English. Quite a contrast from the older communist era grouchy generation. I think it is evident of what Vietnam’s future will be. This conversation was done on our last day in the once capital of Vietnam, Hue home of the old Imperial City and Citadel. As always we continue to contemplate the question, “what would life be like living in Vietnam as a retiree?” We will look to see what the upsides and downsides are to living in a Communist country like Vietnam.

JC’s Road Trip – Vietnam Pt 14 – Hue #2
We are spending a few days in Hue, Vietnam and in this installment of our Vietnam adventure we will continue to see what Hue has to offer a RIPper. We are having a great time in a different SE Asian country than Thailand and we are really starting to appreciate Vietnam and its people more and more. In this episode we look at some of the necessities a Ripper needs and also costs of things in Hue. We will continue to cover what it is like to live in Vietnam and in this episode we will even check out the once capital of Vietnam, Hue and the old Imperial City and Citadel. As always we continue to contemplate the question, “what would life be like living in Vietnam as a retiree?” We will look to see what the upsides and downsides are to living in a Communist country like Vietnam. Here is a little background info about Hue. Huế is a city in central Vietnam that was the seat of Nguyen Dynasty emperors and the national capital from 1802-1945. A major attraction is its vast, 19th-century Citadel, surrounded by a moat and thick stone walls. It encompasses the Imperial City, with palaces and shrines; the Forbidden Purple City, once the emperor’s home; and a replica of the Royal Theater. Huế originally rose to prominence as the capital of the Nguyễn lords, a feudal dynasty that dominated much of southern Vietnam from the 17th to the 19th century. In 1802, Nguyễn Phúc Ánh (later Emperor Gia Long) succeeded in establishing his control over the whole of Vietnam, thereby making Huế the national capital. Huế was the national capital until 1945, when Emperor Bảo Đại abdicated and a communist DRV government was established with its capital at Hanoi, in the north. Imperial City, Huế In June 1802 Nguyễn Ánh took control of Vietnam and proclaimed himself Emperor Gia Long. His rule was recognized by China in 1804. Gia Long consulted with geomancers to decide which was the best place for a new palace and citadel to be built. After the geomancers had decided on a suitable site in Huế, building began in 1804. Thousands of workers were ordered to produce a wall and moat, 10 kilometers long. Initially the walls were earthen, but later these earthen walls were replaced by stone walls, 2 meters thick. The citadel was oriented to face the Huong (perfume) River to the east. This was different from the Forbidden City in Beijing, which faces south. The Emperor's palace is on the east side of the citadel, nearest the river. A second set of walls and a second moat was constructed around the Emperor's palace. Many more palaces and gates and courtyards and gardens were subsequently added. The reigns of the last Vietnamese Emperors lasted until the mid-1900s. At the time, the Purple Forbidden City had many buildings and hundreds of rooms. It suffered from termite and cyclone damage, but was still very impressive. Many bullet holes left over from the Vietnam War can be observed on the stone walls. In the early morning hours of January 31, 1968, as part of the Tet Offensive a Division-sized force of North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong soldiers launched a coordinated attack on Huế seizing most of the city. During the initial phases of the Battle of Hue, due to Huế's religious and cultural status, US troops were ordered not to bomb or shell the city, for fear of destroying the historic structures; but as casualties mounted in house-to-house fighting these restrictions were progressively lifted and the fighting caused substantial damage to the Imperial City. Out of 160 buildings only 10 major sites remain because of the battle, such as the Thái Hòa and Cần Thanh temples, Thế Miếu, and Hiển Lâm Các. The city was made a UNESCO site in 1993. The buildings that still remain are being restored and preserved. The latest and so far the largest restoration project is planned to conclude in 2015.

New Added Danger to Thailand’s Highways
It isn’t a secret that Thailand’s roads are dangerous to drive on. I want to help my viewers to avoid becoming a traffic statistic in Thailand by informing you of the latest danger facing foreigners not only driving but walking the streets as well. Thailand's regulators are even considering measures to cope with possible incidents stemming from Pokémon Go. Players of the game interact with others in every locale, including offices, parks, banks, religious buildings or even taxis trying to capture the digital monsters on their devices. One issue is that this augmented-reality game is taking people to places they would normally avoid, putting their safety at risk because of going alone on their hunt for monsters in unfamiliar places at odd hours. Thailand had as many as 40 million people connecting to the internet on their smartphones in 2015 and they spent almost six hours a day on their phones, so the mobile game has a lot of people staring at their phones and not always paying attention to their surroundings. This makes for a serious danger when it comes to the already unsafe driving conditions in Thailand who has one of the highest traffic fatalities in the world already. The game has traffic violations spiking in Taiwan and is keeping Japanese traffic cops really busy. Drivers now will be looking at their phones more and paying attention to other vehicles and pedestrians less. This is a VERY dangerous situation for foreigners who were already having challenges adapting to Thailand's version of the "Rules of the Road". So please if you are planning to drive a vehicle when in Thailand focus 100% on what is going on around you and anticipate the worst case scenario and be prepared to react. This also goes for pedestrians. Make sure to stay on what little pedestrian walkways exist and avoid walking in the streets as much as possible. When crossing a road move slow and deliberate and see if you can make eye contact with oncoming drivers of vehicles confirming that they see you. If you choose to play the game, play responsibly and know other people’s lives are in your hands and a fun trip could turn ugly quickly. So take care and be safe.

Check out our exclusive RetireCheap.Asia membership site - all the REAL life details you need to live in Thailand plus connect with other like-minded people at: http://goo.gl/M0nMT5 In this episode we have another installment of our Vietnam adventure. We will be spending a few days in Hue, Vietnam. We are having a great time in a different SE Asian country than Thailand and we are really starting to appreciate Vietnam and its people. In this episode we take a train from Da Nang to Hue to see if it is viable for life as a RIPper there.

In 1802, Nguyễn Phúc Ánh (later Emperor Gia Long) succeeded in establishing his control over the whole of Vietnam, thereby making Huế the national capital. Huế was the national capital until 1945, when Emperor Bảo Đại abdicated and a communist DRV government was established with its capital at Hanoi, in the north. While Bảo Đại was briefly proclaimed "Head of State" with the help of the returning French colonialists in 1949 (although not with recognition from the communists or the full acceptance of the Vietnamese people), his new capital was Saigon, in the south. During the Republic of Vietnam, Huế's central location very near the border between the North and South put it in a vulnerable position in the Vietnam War. In the Tết Offensive of 1968, during the Battle of Huế, the city suffered considerable damage not only to its physical features, but its reputation as well, due to a combination of the American military bombing of historic buildings held by the North Vietnamese, and the massacre at Huế committed by the communist forces. After the war's conclusion, many of the historic features of Huế were neglected because they were seen by the victorious communist regime and some other Vietnamese as "relics from the feudal regime"; the Vietnamese Communist Party doctrine officially described the Nguyễn Dynasty as "feudal" and "reactionary." There has since been a change of policy, however, and many historical areas of the city are currently being restored.

We are having a great time in a different SE Asian country than Thailand and we are really starting to appreciate Vietnam and its people. In this episode I hang with a local and try to have a conversation. I am more and more starting to feel Vietnam has a lot to offer RIPpers. In part 11 we will continue to cover what it is like to live in Vietnam and in this episode we have some info and sights and sounds again from Da Nang. We will continue to contemplate the question, “what would life be like living in Vietnam as a retiree?” We will continue to see what the upsides and downsides are to living in a Communist country like Vietnam. In case you missed it here is a little info about Da Nang Da Nang is the fifth most populated city in Vietnam and is the fifth largest city in Vietnam and one of the major port cities. With an area of 1,255.53 km² and a population of 951,700 as of 2011. Women make up 50.7% of Da Nang's population. Situated on the coast of the Eastern Sea, it is the biggest city in Central Vietnam. Da Nang is the commercial and educational center of Central Vietnam, with a well-sheltered, easily accessible port; its location on the path of National Route 1A and the North–South Railway makes it a hub for transportation. The city was previously known as Tourane (or Turon) during French colonial rule. The city's origins date back to the ancient kingdom of Champa, established in 192 AD. One of the first Europeans to visit Da Nang was Portuguese explorer António de Faria, who anchored in Đà Nẵng in 1535. Faria was one of the first Westerners to write about the area. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, French and Spanish traders and missionaries regularly made landfall at Hoi An, just south of Da Nang. During the Republic of Vietnam, the city was home to a major air base that was used by both the South Vietnamese and United States air forces in the War in Vietnam. The base was considered one of the world's busiest airports during the war reaching an average of 2,595 air traffic operations daily, more than any other airport in the world at that time. The final U.S. ground combat operations in Vietnam ceased on 13 August 1972. After the US-withdrawal from the conflict, in the final stage of the conquering of South Vietnam by North Vietnam, Da Nang fell to the communist forces March 29/30, 1975. Da Nang has a tropical monsoon climate with two seasons: a typhoon & wet season lasting from September through March and a dry season lasting from April through August. Temperatures are typically high, with an annual average of 25.9 °C (78.6 °F). Temperatures are highest between June and August (with daily highs averaging 33 to 34 °C (91 to 93 °F)), and lowest between December and February (highs averaging 24 to 25 °C (75 to 77 °F)). The annual average for humidity is 81%, with highs between October and December (reaching 84%) and lows between June and July (reaching 76–77%).

The city was previously known as Tourane (or Turon) during French colonial rule. The city's origins date back to the ancient kingdom of Champa, established in 192 AD. One of the first Europeans to visit Da Nang was Portuguese explorer António de Faria, who anchored in Đà Nẵng in 1535. Faria was one of the first Westerners to write about the area. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, French and Spanish traders and missionaries regularly made landfall at Hoi An, just south of Da Nang. During the Republic of Vietnam, the city was home to a major air base that was used by both the South Vietnamese and United States air forces in the War in Vietnam. The base was considered one of the world's busiest airports during the war reaching an average of 2,595 air traffic operations daily, more than any other airport in the world at that time. The final U.S. ground combat operations in Vietnam ceased on 13 August 1972. After the US-withdrawal from the conflict, in the final stage of the conquering of South Vietnam by North Vietnam, Da Nang fell to the communist forces March 29/30, 1975. Da Nang has a tropical monsoon climate with two seasons: a typhoon & wet season lasting from September through March and a dry season lasting from April through August. Temperatures are typically high, with an annual average of 25.9 °C (78.6 °F). Temperatures are highest between June and August (with daily highs averaging 33 to 34 °C (91 to 93 °F)), and lowest between December and February (highs averaging 24 to 25 °C (75 to 77 °F)). The annual average for humidity is 81%, with highs between October and December (reaching 84%) and lows between June and July (reaching 76–77%).

JC’s Road Trip – Vietnam Pt 9 – Nha Trang #3
Check out our exclusive RetireCheap.Asia membership site - all the REAL life details you need to live in Thailand plus connect with other like-minded people at: http://goo.gl/M0nMT5 For my loyal viewers this video will explain a lot. I was very harsh on the Vietnamese in my previous episodes. My interactions had been quite disappointing. As you all commented I said to hang in there. Well now you will start to see why I said that. The events in this video were a major turning point in my considering Vietnam and a RIPper (Retiree In Paradise) destination. It might be a bit slower than some of my videos and less informative but none the less this was a major change for me. Watch and you will see why! In this episode we have another installment from Vietnam. We are having a great time in a different SE Asian country than Thailand and are really starting to appreciate what Vietnam has to offer RIPpers. In part 9 we will continue to cover what it is like to live in Vietnam and in this episode we have more info and sights and sounds from Nha Trang. We will continue to try to answer the question, “what would life be like living in Vietnam?” We will continue to see what the upsides and downsides are to living in a Communist country like Vietnam. Here again is a little info about Nha Trang in case you missed it. Nha Trang is a coastal city and capital of Khánh Hòa Province, on the South Central Coast of Vietnam. The city has about 392,000 inhabitants, a number that is projected to increase to 560,000 by 2015 and 630,000 inhabitants by 2025. An area of 12.87 square kilometers (4.97 sq mi) of the western communes of Diên An and Diên Toàn is planned to be merged into Nha Trang which will make its new area 265.47 square kilometers (102.50 sq mi) based on the approval of the Prime Minister of Vietnam in September 2012. Nha Trang is well known for its beaches and scuba diving and has developed into a popular destination for international tourists, attracting large numbers of backpackers, as well as more affluent travelers on the south-east Asia circuit; it is already very popular with Vietnamese tourists, with Nha Trang Bay widely considered as among the world's most beautiful bays. Nha Trang Bay, which was chosen by Travel + Leisure in two succeeding years as one of 29 most beautiful bays in the world, is surrounded on all three sides by mountains and a large island and four smaller ones on the fourth side (in the ocean directly in front of the city's main area), blocking major storms from potentially damaging the city. Nha Trang has a tropical savanna climate with a lengthy dry season from January to August and a shorter wet season from September to December, when 1,029 millimeters (41 in) of the city's total annual rainfall of 1,361 millimeters (54 in) is received from the north-east monsoon. During the wet season extremely heavy rainfall from typhoons is not uncommon, though the city is shielded from the worst winds.
