Yesterday we published our first social media highlights summary with the best recent tweets from Singapore.

Today we look at some eye catching tweets from the beautiful Vietnam including some incredible rescue and conservation work with Bears.

Solar Power

Some may find this hard to believe but as i sit here in the UK the sun is beating down and the solar panels on my house are powering pretty much everything I do throughout the day.

The take up of solar power has been less rapid in many countries, where it could bring the greatest benefits. That is changing rapidly in Vietnam however.

Thuy Tien Lake Waterpark

Located near Hue is this incredible waterpark that has now been abandoned and left to nature.

Only a few intrepid travellers now make their way to the waterpark to explore the ruins.

Upcycling

Plastic has become one of the largest sources of pollution on the planet. Plastic is damaging to wildlife and the environment and finding ways to reduce use or recycle are incredibly important.

A third way to deal with waste is upcycling, where unwanted items are transformed into new products, materials or reused in ways not previously imagined.

Monsoon

When it rains during the monsoon it RAINS.

Golden Bridge, Da Nang.

Linking the cable car station with parts of the Ba Na Hills Resort near Da Nang the Golden Bridge became an instant Instagram hit and was recently included in a UK Daily Mail list of the new “Wonders of the World”

Bear Rescue

Animals Asia works to end the bear bile trade, which sees over 10,000 bears – mainly moon bears but also sun bears and brown bears – kept on bile farms across Asia. It has rescued more than 600 bears from the industry since it was established.

After years of cooperation, Animals Asia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Vietnam Government to completely End Bear Bile Farming in Vietnam by 2022. This includes rescuing and rehoming approximately 600 bears that remain on farms in Vietnam, where bear bile farming is illegal.

Earlier this week a new bear was rescued by the team.
