The Hanoi Zine Library is a free arts library project that was created to give people in Vietnam access to the types of cool international arts-and-culture materials that are often only locally available on the internet. These small, creator-made books about niche interests have been donated overseas and carried over in people’s spare luggage allowance. This is the only dedicated space for the medium in Vietnam.
In January, Jetstar announced direct services connecting Ho Chi Minh City with Australia’s two largest cities — Sydney and Melbourne. The new service aims to continue the large growth in two-way travel between Vietnam and Australia.
