Saigon 2 - The End

VIETNAM | Sunday, 24 Dec 2006 | Views [1879] | Comments [1]

So it was our last day in Vietnam, in South East Asia. We had some money left and went shopping to spend every last bit (it would go a lot further in Vietnam than in England), had a HUMONGOUS meal and got everything ready for the trip to the airport.... Read more >

Saigon 1

VIETNAM | Sunday, 24 Dec 2006 | Views [1458]

Another early arrival. This time we thought we'd take our time about finding a hotel. Now loaded down with luggage (presents, suits and more!) we wandered around the backpacker area of Saigon for ages, with the idea of finding somewhere nice for our ... Read more >

Nha Trang

VIETNAM | Sunday, 24 Dec 2006 | Views [1293]

We arrived in Nha Trang at 6 in the morning. Gary had been on the sleeping pills so wasn't as groggy as usual, although got a bit tetchy when the tour operator got a bit too close! He greeted us with 'Good morning!' and 'Congratulations! The Typhoon ... Read more >

Hoi An

VIETNAM | Saturday, 9 Dec 2006 | Views [1214] | Comments [2]

Well Hoi An definitely proved to be a recovery spot for us and we stayed for 8 days in the end, we did a lot of sleeping, a lot of shopping and made some important decisions. We arrived at around 7pm and as we got off the bus we were instantly sorrounded ... Read more >

Halong Bay

VIETNAM | Friday, 1 Dec 2006 | Views [1179] | Comments [1]

After our night on the town in 'New Century Club' it's not surprising that we woke up late for our trip to Halong Bay - Very late! In fact our wonderful tour agent, Tom, was banging on the door, 'Wake up! Wake up! Halong Bay! Halong Bay!' we had twenty ... Read more >

I know we've complained about bus journeys before but this one took the biscuit!  Admittedly it was famous for being a horrific, 24 hour slog but it was definitely worse for us as you'll discover!... We got dropped off at the bus station ... Read more >

Mong Ngoi

LAOS | Thursday, 16 Nov 2006 | Views [1555]

They say flattery will get you everywhere. We think that in this case it's true. We arrived in Luang Prubang with the intention to settle down for a week and enjoy the UNESCO world heritage city. On first arrival it seemed very beautiful with temples ... Read more >

Vang Vieng

LAOS | Wednesday, 8 Nov 2006 | Views [2772] | Comments [3]

Whenever we spoke to other travellers about Vang Vieng, we always got the same reply, ‘Oh, everyone goes there… it’s so touristy… there’s more falang (foreigners) there than locals’ (sounds like Dubai!). In the guide book it was a similar opinion. We ... Read more >

Overnight Train - Vientiane

LAOS | Thursday, 2 Nov 2006 | Views [1147] | Comments [2]

I don't think either of us were looking forward to the long journey planned for the 30th of October. It would take us first from Kanchunaburi to Bangkok then north through Thailand by train to arrive the next morning at the border town of Nong Khai, ... Read more >

Kanchanburi Part 2

THAILAND | Sunday, 29 Oct 2006 | Views [740] | Comments [2]

We're still alive and kicking (each other! Hahaha) For all it's faults (a bit overly touristy, possible sewage contamination in the water, mangey dogs and the fact our room hasn't been cleaned) Kanchanaburi really is a charming and beautiful place. We've ... Read more >
