I absolutely love Hong Kong! It was a few years ago now that I visited – as a stopover on the way to Malaysia – and was immediately captured by its beauty, unique culture, cleanliness and efficiency whilst also being a bustling major city of the world. Advertisements
Uluwatu The main places to stay in Bali are Kuta or Seminyak – before I went, everyone would ask me if I was staying in Kuta or Seminyak…but I actually didn’t stay in either of those! As I’d heard that they are fast becoming more and more touristy and full of drunk rowdy foreigners (mainly Australians!!), we decided to stay a bit further out in Uluwatu in the south of the island.
Siem Reap In comparison to Thailand and Vietnam and a few other countries in Southeast Asia, Cambodia is tiny! A visit to Cambodia is not complete without seeing the jewel of its kingdom, Angkor Wat.
Bangkok It is one of the most interesting cities I’ve ever visited, but it is also smelly, dirty, loud and hectic, and you’ll probably have had enough of it after a few days of being hounded by street merchants and fighting your way through the crowds on Khao San Road. But Bangkok is definitely a great way to start a trip in Southeast Asia!
Whatever anyone tells you before you go, there are just some things you will only ever learn (and might not want to experience again!) from travelling around Asia yourself…
