Vietnam Airlines, low-cost carrier VietJet and recently established Bamboo Airways are preparing to operate non-stop flights, reducing travel time by almost eight hours.

Illustration by Trịnh Lập By An Phương “Not everyone is an artist, but everyone is a critic.” I reblog this quote or ones with a similar meaning to my personal Tumblr account every time I feel attacked by a random Internet fellow.
