Secluded from the hustle of Hanoi but still within the city’s reach is the Temple of Literature dedicated to Confucius – learn the Golden Rule and make an offering to him. With the philosopher’s teachings spanning until 479 BC still relevant today, this is one temple to take advice from.

The Confucius confab ends on a high with the crew going to dinner at Koto – an acronym for ‘Know One Teach One’, a restaurant providing training and life skills to street children so they are ready to work in 5 star hotels throughout Vietnam.

Get swept up in the incense of confucius and his peace offerings in the second episode of the web series featuring travel blogger Laura McWhinnie and spin master Rachel Phillips (DJ Minx). Watch the girls take on South East Asia and Indochina with as many insects, Indiana Jones references and bikinis as they can handle.

This is Topdeck’s first ever travelling web series, plonking you in the middle of coastal Thai resorts to bustling Hanoi sidewalks to peaceful Cambodian mega temples in our brand spanking new Asia product.
