Success!  I managed to get the smallest grin out of a royal guard when I took a selfie with him!

THAILAND | Friday, 3 Oct 2014 | Views [153]

Visiting the Grand Palace today and the surrounding temples. The size of the temples as well as the sheer volume is a bit overwhelming.

Thailand - Day 2

THAILAND | Thursday, 2 Oct 2014 | Views [118]

Not much going on today, took the train to the MBK centre, which is a 7 story mall filled with every type of vendor possible. Here you can find genuine high-end fashion and electronics right next to fake knock-offs.

Cambodia - Day 3-4

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 30 Sep 2014 | Views [252]

Cambodian BBQ.  Similar to Korean, but the grill is surrounded with vegetables and water that becomes a delicious soup with all the meat being grilled. We've got 7 kinds of meat here, chicken, pork, beef, kangaroo, squid, crocodile and fish. ... Read more >

Cambodia - Day 3-3

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 30 Sep 2014 | Views [288]

Pub street in Siem Reap. Literally every place is a bar, restaurant, massage parlour, or some combination of all three. Don't assume that pub street during the day is the same at night. Once the sun goes down the street transforms into a plethora ... Read more >

Cambodia - Day 3-2

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 30 Sep 2014 | Views [211]

If you get to chance to try Khmer food, I highly recommend it. Must cheaper than western food, and much more filling. This is Amok, a curry dish with meat and vegetables served in a coconut along with rice.

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 30 Sep 2014 | Views [235]

Ankor Thom area, another temple site. Don't underestimate how large these temples are. Bring lots of water, sunscreen and food. Otherwise be prepared to have to bargain hard with the vendors to get a half decent price.

Cambodia - Day 3

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 30 Sep 2014 | Views [256]

Ankor Wat. Pictures and words do not fully explain how big these temples truly are. If you come to Asia, do not miss this experience. Also, if one vendor offers you 10 postcards for $1, and another offers you 1 postcard for $1 and you get 9 ... Read more >

Cambodia - Day 2-1

CAMBODIA | Monday, 29 Sep 2014 | Views [229]

Ok...Ha may have been onto something. After a shower, a massage and a bed, we're starting to feel like human beings again. Cambodia, you may be starting to redeem yourself.

Cambodia - Day 1-2

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 28 Sep 2014 | Views [155]

So after a ridiculous 6 hour traffic jam, we missed our bus to Siem Reap, and had to catch the 11pm bus in Phnom Penh. Now I know what it felt like to sleep in the bottom deck of the Titanic. We've now been travelling for 17 hours, and we're about ... Read more >

Couldn't resist... First McDonalds we've seen in Vietnam. Interestingly, a Big Mac meal is about $3 cheaper than in Canada.

Vietnam - Day 5-1

VIETNAM | Saturday, 27 Sep 2014 | Views [216]

We've got to catch the bus at 6am tomorrow, so tonight it's hostel time. There's actually a guy sleeping in here, but he said exactly 0 words when he woke up around 4pm, and didn't actually return before we left the next day. Incidently, the two ... Read more >

Vietnam - Day 5

VIETNAM | Saturday, 27 Sep 2014 | Views [178]

Market in Ho Chi Minh. Here you can find delicious food cooked fresh in front of you, in addition to fruit, meats, seafood, and pretty much anything else you could need. Just beware of pickpockets, as it's very crowded and people regularly bump ... Read more >

Taking the ferry to Cat Ba island. This provides an even better view of Ha Long bay, as the ferry goes right through the heart of the islands, providing a stunning view of the monolithic cliffs surrounding you.

Vietnam - Day 4-4

VIETNAM | Friday, 26 Sep 2014 | Views [165]

So according to certain readers, I've been a bit negligent in updating my posts. To them I say "look at Captain Travis". Also, it's off to Hai Phong today.
