MALAYSIA | Thursday, 26 Dec 2013 | Views [2093]

The boat trip from Koh Phi Phi to Phuket took an hour and a half. Phuket is a huge island – to the point that it almost feels like a city. The main beaches are Patong, Kata & Karon. We decided to stay at Karon as it is the quietest of the 3.... Read more >

Siem Reap, Cambodia & Bangkok, Thailand

CAMBODIA | Monday, 25 Nov 2013 | Views [1371]

We got the bus from Phnom Pehn to Siem Reap. A distance that back home would only take 3-4 hours, took  9. The traffic was horrendous and we stopped constantly to pick people up. The bus was so full that people sat on little plastic stools in the ... Read more >

Sihanoukville, Koh Rong Island & Phnom Pehn, Cambodia

Phu Quoc, Vietnam / Kep & Kampot, Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 3 Nov 2013 | Views [3377]

In Ho Chi Minh we squeezed our bags onto a local bus to get out to the airport. Our flight on a tiny little plane with a propeller took an hour to the island of Phu Quoc. We arrived at a bare and empty, brand new airport. We hadn't pre-booked accommodation ... Read more >

The Misadventure to Nha Trang / & Saigon City

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 29 Oct 2013 | Views [3562] | Comments [2]

Our 13 hour overnight bus journey turned into a 24 hour nightmare! We departed from Hoi An around 5pm. Our "sleeping" bus was very unusual. It had bunk bed style seats with two levels, where your legs are stretched out into a cubby hole under the ... Read more >

Hue & Hoi An, Vietnam

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 22 Oct 2013 | Views [1750]

Our overnight train from Hanoi to Hue (pronounced Hway) ended up taking 13 hours. We had booked a hard sleeper (6 beds in a cabin) instead of a soft sleeper (4 beds) to keep costs down. (The bus would've been cheaper but reviews were not in its favour ... Read more >

Vang Vieng & Vientiane, Laos

LAOS | Thursday, 3 Oct 2013 | Views [3534]

The drive to Vang Vieng from Luang Prabang took 5 and a half hours but it seemed much longer. The roads were bumpy with constant sharp corners and we were stuck on the back seats. It could’ve been incredibly horrific but I managed to tune out for ... Read more >
