Vacation in Vietnam

Hello from Japan, everyone!

We’ve just moved to Tokyo, and we’re in the process of setting everything up here, but while we’re at it we wanted to share some footage from our Vacation in Vietnam. It’s been a really crazy month, as we’ve been preparing a lot for the start of our new lives. We had planned, however, this small trip before our flight out to Tokyo. I’m sure some people might think it’s crazy of us to go on vacation right before such a big move, but we thought it would be a good way to calm ourselves down. If we got everything done beforehand, we could use a few days to relax by the beach with a drink or two and a good novel to read. And so we did, and Vietnam was a perfect place for it!

We stayed at the Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort. It was unlike anything we’ve ever done before. As you might have seen from our 2015 Rewind Video, we travel a lot. Whenever we travel, though, it’s usually for work. We rarely ever travel somewhere and just chill. And we’re very active travellers as well. We try to experience as much of a city as possible. We eat as much local food as we can find. We go to supermarkets and try to cook with local ingredients. We hunt and seek out as much of the city as we can in the time that we’re there. So for us to go to Vietnam for the first time in our lives and not do the same was very bizarre for us. But we resisted. We played on the beach, swam in the pool, read books, and napped. It felt weird not to go out, but, I gotta say, it was so refreshing. Really refreshing. Just sitting on our balcony and listening to the ocean, without running around, just sitting somewhere for more than 20 minutes was really something special.

And the resort was perfect for it. This resort was probably the most beautiful place we’ve ever been. And no, we’re not paid to say that. This isn’t an advertisement. We didn’t go for work. We really just went to relax, and we couldn’t have picked a better place. We ate well, rested well, and got some Vitamin D from sitting in the sun. It was great! We didn’t film that much, because we tried not to, but at the same time we couldn’t really resist. So we shot a short vlog here of us playing around, but we also shot some videos for something new we want to start. It’s not something big, and I’m not even sure if anyone will be interested, but we wanted to give it a shot. Basically, we just want to shoot some longer videos of pretty scenery. We sometimes watch videos of waterfalls or beaches on YouTube. Just keep them on loop for hours, play them in the background, and listen to the sounds. Kind of like a screensaver, you can say. We figured, hey, if we’re in some nice locations, why not try to film some of those videos ourselves. We don’t know the best way to do it yet, but we’ll keep on trying. I’m sure we’ll find some really pretty places to film around Japan, and we’ll share those videos as well.

The channel is called Scenescapes. We posted two videos of the beach on that channel. Each video is 20 minutes long or so. Check them out if you want to see what we were staring at for most of our vacation in Vietnam. Here’s one and here’s another!

We also took a lot of pictures. I realize now that we didn’t relax as much on vacation as we should have. Ha! We’re just really easily inspired! So here are some pictures we took as well:

Lastly, we also have some extra scenes. HA! They’re below. OH! And we also posted a video from our move to Japan, so you might want to check that out as well if you want to see how it all went down!

  1. So nice to watch your videos again! I missed you guise! (I’ve been w/o internet for months…T.T) I haven’t checked out your scenescapes yet, but I like the idea. It would be nice to see some of the beautiful places in the world that I probably won’t ever go to. Personally, I think it would be cool to set up a camera on a really busy street and just let it run for hours. I like to watch people in foreign countries just going about their business. Its like being able to people watch even if you can’t go there in person.

  2. Question:

    I’m thinking of starting to save up to go on a vacation like this. This was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! *-*
    How did you guys go about it? Did you purchase a vacation package? Or did you reserve the resort separately alongside flight tickets?

    Does the resort include breakfasts or meals, or is all that to be paid separately?

    This was such a beautiful video, thank you guys for showing us the world!! :D

  3. I had to laugh at the part where you were in the pool. I had this girlfriend I would carry around in my arms in swimming pools. We were annoyingly lovie-dovie.

  4. Damn that resort looks amazing! Watching your videos always ignites my desire for travel. I hope your adventures in Japan are going well and that you are able to find a great apartment soon :D

    P.S Paddle boarding is a lot easier in a lake because of minimal waves – if you ever get a chance to try if you’re back in Canada during the summer and can go up to a cottage I think you guys would be able to get up and stay up.

  5. It’s nice to have a good vacation and give your body and mind a rest. Looks like you both needed it, esp with the move to Japan. The shorts incident is hilarious! Haha! The ocean and the scenery are stunning. Kudos on the videos! :)

  7. This resort looks amazing and \I’m glad there’s been a chance to relax but the best part of everything for me was when my wifi kicked out during the bloopers about 1 second into Simon’s giant fart/ pool bubbler machine and I laughed silly then fixed the wifi.

  8. Those pictures are beautiful. Is that a picture of a lychee in its rind up there? I love lychees but I’ve only ever had them from a can or as gummy candy.

    • I’m fairly certain that’s a rambutan, very similar in taste to a lychee (in my opinion) but the skin is much easier to get off!

  9. I’m glad you guys had a good time! I hope you’ll return to Vietnam and go on adventures someday. I’m planning to come back to Vietnam myself, but my family lives in Saigon, so I’ve actually never been to Da Nang. Lol
