-----( $20 USD = 138 RMB )-----

We met at Zhongshan Wharf (中山码头) and took the ferry to Pukou District(the oldest district in Nanjing). After enjoying some outdoor shenanigans, we had breakfast at the legendary Daxi Wonton (大喜馄饨摊).

Later, we enjoyed a feast at Nanjing Dapaidang (南京大排档) on Hunan Road. In the afternoon, we walked around Xuanwu Lake (玄武湖) and caught a glimpse of the Ming Great Wall(明城墙).

Next, we ventured over to Yihe Road(颐和路), then visited Librairie Avant-Garde(先锋书店五台山店), one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world.

In the evening, we had an ocean-sized bowl of pig skin noodles at a family noodle shop, then headed over to Laoyang Cigarette Booth(老杨烟摊) for some fun times. We sipped beers, laughed lots, and lived like young rebels without a cause.

Finally, we made our way to the hostel, where we had a bunk bed waiting for us.

What an amazing day it was, and we did it all for less than $20USD!

About Me:

My name is Kevin Cook. I'm originally from Dallas, TX, but I've been living and traveling in Asia since 2013.

After graduating from university in 2011 and working a few unfulfilling jobs, I saved enough money to move to Asia and work as a teacher for a few years. That opportunity allowed me to travel around and experience new foods and cultures, and ignited a passion for blogging and making videos.

Now I travel full-time and make videos with the goal that I can encourage YOU to pursue your own dream of overseas traveling and living.

REAL OR FAKE? Insane Bangkok Shopping Malls | MBK & Siam Paragon | Thailand Travel Vlog

In Bangkok MBK Center was the best fake shopping mall you could find... but not anymore! We also vlog Siam Paragon, the class of.. ⬇ More Below ✈ Our 220 page guide on how to travel for a living —

Bangkok shopping malls are on a whole different level - the shopping centers they have seem to be on every other corner and every single BTS station. Our last Bangkok vlog around shopping was in 2017 and we got lots of hate, kind of understandably because we were new to the old travel vlog and YouTube we misslabeled it.

Today we revisit MBK Center to get a feel for how much things in Thailand have cracked down on the shopping mall fake scene. Turns out things are a lot more strict than they used to be!

Compare MBK Mall to Siam Center shops and you've got a whole different scene. Siam Paragon is stunning, classy and elegant - not our scene at all haha.

Hanoi, Vietnam: Traveling for $20 A Day - Ep 13

In Hanoi, Vietnam, I got a buffet breakfast, beef pho, bun cha, ice cream, Vietnemese egg coffee, sugarcane juice, four Hanoi beers, a room in a hostel, and explored the entire Old Quarter and western side of the city, all in one day - all for LESS THAN 15 DOLLARS. Seriously, this is the cheapest city I've ever visited.

($20 USD = 445,000 Vietnamese dong)

Here's how I spent my money in one full day in Hanoi:

Hostel bed - 112,000 dong
Breakfast buffet - FREE (included with hostel)
Ice cream - 8,000
Egg coffee - 17,000
Beef pho - 30,000
Fried dough snack - 7,000
Temple of Literature - 30,000
Sugarcane juice - 10,000
Ho Chi Minh Complex - 40,000
Bun Cha - 35,000
Four beers @7k/beer - 28,000

TOTAL COST = 319,000 dong ($14.26 USD)

Oh, and one more thing: the egg coffee I drank in this video is seriously the best coffee I've ever had in my entire life. If you visit Hanoi, you MUST TRY egg coffee.

Where I stayed: Chien Hostel

This hostel had the friendliest staff I've ever encountered. They were so happy to help me make this video and show me around Hanoi. I couldn't have had such an amazing yet frugal day without the help of the Chien Hostel staff. Shout out to Chun and Tuan!

5 Bangkok Travel Tips You Should Know (How to Get Out of Airport, Where to Exchange Money, Etc)

How to VAT Refund in Bangkok:


My stay here is in Citadines Sukhumvit Soi 16. This is a company paid stay so this was their choice. There are so much more great hotels in Bangkok and the prices are relatively cheap! I suggest you stay near a BTS station. If you are after city center, stay in Siam area. But if you are in a romantic getaway, find a hotel near Chao Phraya river, and have a river cruise! Enjoy the amazing Thai food: Pad Thai, Masaman curry, Satay, Papaya salad, Thai milk tea,, yummmm! Have a great time at the temples but stay hydrated and wear comfortable shoes! Bangkok is a shoppers paradise too!
