Singapore and Journey End

SINGAPORE | Thursday, 1 May 2014 | Views [237]

We very nearly didn't make it to Singapore. We had been 'reliably' informed it was ok to leave Vietnam 48 hours after the expiry of our visas by various travel forums and travelers, however we found this wasn't entirely true. Upon checking into our flight ... Read more >

Hanoi

VIETNAM | Sunday, 27 Apr 2014 | Views [235]

Hanoi is much like Ho Chi Minh City, busy, loud and manic which was a bit of an assult on our senses after the serenity (well mostly) of Cat Ba. We treated ourselves to a nice hotel and have taken full advantage of room service and our mini bar. It has ... Read more >

Cat Ba Island & Halong Bay

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 22 Apr 2014 | Views [261]

We were happy to leave Hue despite facing a mammoth 16hour overnight train journey, thankfully booking the best class; soft sleepers. We were lucky to have the bottom beds of a four bed berth and both managed 7-8 hours of sleep - so much better than ... Read more >

Hue

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 16 Apr 2014 | Views [206]

We arrived into Hue with high expectations especially since Hoi An was so stunning. Hue has been a bit average, not particularly bad but not amazing either. The highlight of the city is definately the Citadel, the ancient city where a dynasty of Emperors ... Read more >

Hoi An

VIETNAM | Saturday, 12 Apr 2014 | Views [215]

Hoi An is easily one of the most photogenic towns we have stayed in with old style Chinese / Japanese / Vietnamese buildings, a river running through and lots of cafes, bars, resturants and craft shops. Being so photogenic resulted in Tash snapping away ... Read more >

Nha Trang (& Dalat)

VIETNAM | Thursday, 10 Apr 2014 | Views [221]

We had a few unproductive days in Dalat before heading to Nha Trang, mainly drinking amazing Vietnamese coffees at 'Chocolate Cafe' and people watching. We heard there were lots of nice things to see and do but we happily did nothing. Our first day in ... Read more >

Cat Tien National Park

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 2 Apr 2014 | Views [275]

We left Ho Chi Minh and headed a few hours north west to Cat Tien National Park. It would come as no suprise to any who have visited Vietnam that we were overcharged for our bus journey, followed by being stung significantly by the moto taxi riders for ... Read more >

Ho Chi Minh City

VIETNAM | Sunday, 30 Mar 2014 | Views [276] | Comments [1]

Arriving in Ho Chi Minh City was both an assult on the senses and a relief to find friendly, welcoming locals. We spent our first two days exploring some of the major landmarks in the city (old post office, Notre Dame Cathedral, War Mueseum, Bitex Co ... Read more >

Kuala Lumpur

MALAYSIA | Tuesday, 25 Mar 2014 | Views [271]

Our flight from Sandakan was one approached with a healthy dose of trepidation and fear; given that MH370 was recently lost and we had booked with Malaysian Airlines. On top of this there was nowhere in the airport to buy some stiff drinks and the plane ... Read more >

Semporna Archipelago

MALAYSIA | Monday, 24 Mar 2014 | Views [309]

Unfortunately our time in Semporna did not live up to our rather high expectations. We had been told there was little to do in the town (although the islands are a diving and snorkeling mecca) but could not have imagined how dirty, stinky, unwelcoming ... Read more >
