Teddy bear takes the trip of a lifetime

Avid traveler Le Trong Binh, a 30-year-old from Hanoi, brought a furry friend with him on a recent north-south trip of Vietnam.

He came up with the idea of travelling with this special friend after receiving a teddy bear from a cousin who thought he should have someone or… something to accompany him on his solo adventures.

On his latest trip across the country, Binh pictured the stuffed animal enjoying several famous monuments and landscapes. He posted the pictures of the bear, sometimes by himself, on Facebook account to keep his friends and family posted on Binh and his furry friend's whereabouts.

From Vietnam’s northernmost province of Ha Giang to the southern commercial hub of Saigon, this is one well-travelled bear.

Check out Binh and his furry friend’s adventures below.

Apparently, it’s not common to come by adults in Vietnam who travel with stuffed animals. It might be odd to some people but no one can deny this is absolutely endearing. Binh and his friend, hand in hand, strolling along the beach in Khanh Hoa Province.
