There are hundreds of temples in Thailand’s bustling capital, but with so much choice how do you decide which ones to visit? Here I bring you a rundown of the top 4 must-sees whilst in Bangkok, so you can plan your day of sightseeing. Advertisements
After a week of shivering up in north Vietnam, it was so nice to get back to the heat in Ho Chi Minh. I’m not sure if it was partly that and partly being back in a (fairly) civilised city after rural mountain life, but I really liked Ho Chi Minh.
Just a few hours drive east of Hanoi is the beautiful Ha Long Bay, one of the seven wonders of the world. It is amazing to get out of the city for a while and breathe the fresh sea air.
After some time on mainland Bali, our next stop was the beautiful Gili islands!
From Siem Reap, we took a short flight north to Hanoi. The first dramatic change of weather we had experienced – from the 30 degree heat to the cold!
When planning a multi-stop trip – whether it’s one country or one continent – can be daunting, with many places to see. Do you stay on the well travelled route – or do you want to go off the beaten track? Are you travelling on a shoestring or do you want to treat yourself? Are you going to plan it all before you go or give yourself some flexibility and leave it open? Are you going to fit it all in to a few weeks or stretch it out over a few months?
The Gilis, a group of 3 small islands just off Bali, are a tiny piece of paradise. Whether you’re heading there for a few days relaxation after partying in Kuta or Seminyak on mainland Bali, or just after a peaceful getaway, you are guaranteed to forget about whatever it is you came to forget, as the hustle and bustle of real life escapes you.
