Phuket + Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

Phuket finally was what I expected the whole of thailand to be, tacky tourist central! Bangalar Road in Patong is just like any strip in Ayia Napa or the likes and I was not impressed! Thankfully for my final nights in Thailand I had upgraded to a hotel so I could get away from the…

Koh Phagnan, Thailand

How 2 days turned into a 9 day island adventure and took all my money. Koh phagnan home of the infamous Full Moon Party was somewhere I was expecting to hate, but boy was I wrong. I refused to leave and missed two extra stops just to stay here longer, and if I didn’t have…

Koh Tao, Thailand

From busy cities to beautiful beaches I began the trek south to Koh Tao. After 4 months of hostels I treated myself to a hotel and it was luxury! The 1 star hotel was divine! The island itself is so beautiful and so we rented a motorbike and spent a few days exploring the island…

Bangkok, Thailand

Fed up of long overnight bus journeys we treated ourselves to a flight from Chiang Mai to Bangkok! Staying just off the infamous Khao San Road I had high expectations of the crazy city, but actually was disappointed. The parties were fun but everything shuts at 12 which seemed rather odd in comparison to the…

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai was somewhere I was so excited to visit because of the elephants! The city itself is quite nice but quiet in the day times, but at night the streets come alive with miles and miles of markets…I also saw my first ladyboy cabaret show which was a very fun experience to say the…

Chiang Rai, Thailand

A nice stop over to break up the distance between laos and Chiang Mai but I’m not sure I’d return. Chiang Rai as a city has nothing…and it was dead…there was no one in the whole city it was so bizzar! At night a few people came out of the word work for the night…

The Gibbon Experience, Laos

A year ago I saw The Gibbon Experience on instagram and knew I HAD to go so I based my whole trip to Laos around it! Starting at 8am in Huayxay which is on the border of Thailand we were given the safety demonstrations and then we set off. Bouncing around in the back of…

Luang Prabang, Laos

A small French colonial town in the middle of backwards Laos is Luang Prabang. The town is beautiful and the night market is extremely famous. In the centre of the town is a mountain which supposedly was moved from Sri Lanka by a monkey king. On this mountain is Buddhas foot, although I couldn’t make…

Vang Vieng, Laos

Flying into laos was easily one of the prettiest plane descents I’ve ever done. Humongous mountains and sprawling landscape littered with a few tiny villages. As Laos is rather difficult to get to it is missed off my many travellers which makes being here more special. Vang Vieng was truly beautiful! The city is no…

Siem Reap, Cambodia

My last stop on my tour of Cambodia was Siem Reap, most famously known for Angkor Wat. The city itself is very bizzar. By day there is nothing to do, besides Angkor Wat, but at night the city comes alive. It has the most humongous night market and pub street and is really fun in…

Battambang, Cambodia

A journey that was supposed to take just over 12 hours ended up taking just under 24! It was a very eventful journey from Koh Rong Sanloem to Battambang and one that I don’t wish to repeat. Gone are the luxury recliner buses of Vietnam, instead we got given this… Arriving into Battambang at 3am,…

Koh Rong + Koh Rong Sanloem, Cambodia

A million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the capital, Phnom Penh, lies Koh Rong and Koh Rong Sanloem. The islands are an hour boat ride from Sihanoukville and are unbelievable. I first stayed on Koh Rong which is the party island. I didn’t partake in much partying as it’s soooo expensive in…
