It was the perfect spot to set up an undisturbed industrial town in the middle of nowhere.  By 1898, it was mostly railway […]

Abandoned Franciscan Mission Ruins, Dalat, Vietnam

The stunning Franciscaines Misionnaires de Marie ruins caught my eye when I was driving around Dalat on the back of a motorbike. An urban explorer always spots an abandoned building from far away! As I wasn’t sure about the safety of heading into abandoned buildings in Vietnam alone, I hired a bike and an English […]
