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…

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

It was a very sad goodbye to Vietnam but thankfully the border crossing to cambodia was smooth. My passport is beginning to look very impressive! Phnom Penh is the capital but very different from all other capitals in Asia that I’ve been to so far. There is a noticeable culture shock when you first arrive…

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

My final stop in my month and a half tour of Vietnam was Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon. The city itself is much like any other however, the impact of the Vietnam war is clearly shown here. Since I studied the Vietnam War for my GCSEs I always told myself that I would come…

Dalat, Vietnam

I have been told my many travellers that Dalat is one of their favourite places that they’ve visited and now I know why. Set back into the countryside is the city of Dalat, surrounded by mountains and forests it feels like you’re in Tuscany rather than Vietnam. Our hostel is one of the most famous…

Nha Trang, Vietnam

It’s almost been 3 months since I left home and the hectic lifestyle I’ve been living has started to catch up on me. My stay in Nha Trang wasn’t the relaxation I had hoped for however, it was the most luxurious hostel I’ve ever stayed in and the constant sun and heat was divine! I’m…

Hoi An, Vietnam

The city of lanterns has been a highlight of Vietnam. Besides the lanterns, Hoi An is known for its incredible cloth market and tailors. When clothes are involved I can never say no! As I visited Hoi An twice it meant that I had to get two outfits made! They only took 5 hours to…
