When I was in Saigon back in 1993, I dined at the incredible Tri Ky Restaurant.Cobra’s meat, Armadillo, Deer cervicals ( ?) and – BAT were on the menu. You won’t find this restaurant today because it has been replaced by a high rise, however ,there are sure to be replacements. Ask your hotel concierge in Saigon and they will be sure to help you.

In 1993 I filmed this Saigon storefront offering many rare and newly discovered species – stuffed and preserved – for sale. One can only hope the Vietnamese government has cracked down on such operations – there is far more money to be made in ecotourism than selling this contraband that would be confiscated at most customs checkpoints in the world. ArcticTropic has several exotic flora and fauna adventures in the jungles and mountains of Northern Vietnam.
Rush hour on a cold winter’s day in Hanoi. Bicycles,cyclos and motorbikes rushing in every direction. Right now ArcticTropic has three listings for Vietnam – with many more to come.
Back around 1993, I was doing a shoot in Vietnam. I shot this while riding a bike down a sandy back alley in the coastal city of Nha Trang.
