Travel & Living in Hanoi, Vietnam. Sometimes not.
Not long back from Ninh Binh, south of Hà Nội. Check out the latest vids from this trip over on the Hà Nội Scribbles YouTube channel.
Ninh Binh, specifically Trang An, was the location for much of the filming of King Kong – Skull Island starring Hollywood superstar, Samuel L Jackson. Discovered while there that we were staying in the same hotel as the film crew had for two months during filming. The cast stayed somewhere posher apparently.
The hotel were quick to trumpet their Hollywood connection with a giant King Kong head on a billboard curiously located at the rear of the hotel. Part of the set at Trang An has been preserved for visitors.
