Mui Ne (Vietnam)

At a 4 hour bus ride North of Ho Chi Minh you have the Vietnamese surfers’ paradise Mui Ne. There are several buses per day, most of which are ‘sleeper’ buses with super comfy seats! Mui Ne is a little town nestled along a sandy beach on the South China Sea. The beach is more beautiful on the Southern part, where there is more sand and less hotels. However we wouldn’t recommend coming to this place just for the beachRead more

Hanoi (Vietnam)

Hanoi is a bit like Ho Chi Minh but in a cuter version. We absolutely LOVED this city, probably even more than Ho Chi Minh, even though we had to put up with the colder temperatures of the North of the country. Hanoi has a particular cool and hip vibe, where you feel that everyone is doing their own thing. The streets are full of art shops, trendy fashion boutiques, cool bars and restaurants, reminding us a bit of SohoRead more

Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam)

From sandy Phu Quoc we flew back to Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon in Vietnamese. Saigon was actually renamed to Ho Chi Minh City after the war, after the former president. We were dazzled by this beautiful city with on the one hand its modern skyscrapers with spectacular rooftop bars and on the other hand the little street markets and chaotic every day life of the locals. We loved this place so much that we actually contemplatedRead more

Phu Quoc (Vietnam)

From the paradise islands of Koh Rong in Cambodia we flew to its Vietnamese counterpart Phu Quoc. We were planning to cross the border overland and then take a boat to Phu Quoc (as Koh Rong and Phu Quoc are only a few miles from each other). But it turned out our Vietnam Visa was only valid in international airports so we were refused at the border and had to fly all around through Phnom Penh, then on to HoRead more

Koh Rong (Cambodia)

From Phnom Penh we hopped on a bus direction Kampot, from where we continued to Sihanoukville, where we boarded a boat which took us to some of the most beautiful paradise-esque islands we have ever seen: Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem which is home to one of our favourite beaches on the entire planet, Sok San beach (and trust us, we have seen MANY beaches ) 🙂 What did we visit? Motorcycling in Kampot & Kep Kampot (where theRead more

Phnom Penh (Cambodia)

From the little peaceful town of Siem Reap we hopped on one of the many daily flights to the capital of the country – and what a change of scenery this was! As soon as we left the airport we found ourselves on over-congested roads and sidewalks, and faced an invasion of all of our senses: constant honking of cars and motorbikes, the loud noise of trucks and buses cruising the city, the smell of open air food markets, andRead more

Angkor Wat (Cambodia)

Our first encounter with Cambodia was the little town of Siem Reap in the North of the country, home to the mother of all temples, the mighty Angkor Wat. Even before visiting the temples, we fell in love with the atmosphere of this place. Siem Reap is the hip, young and cool place to be in Cambodia, full of cool bars and restaurants with an amazing vibe… You will love it! What did we visit? Temples of Angkor Eager toRead more

Inle Lake (Myanmar)

Everyone who visits Myanmar, makes a stop at this massive lake at some point during their trip, and for a reason. The magnificent lake stretches over 22 km long and 10km wide and is surrounded by numerous floating little villages, home to over 70,000 local tribe people who literally live on the lake. We were coming from a 2 day hike with a night slept on the floor so we decided to treat ourselves to a beautiful hotel on theRead more

Hike Kalaw – Inle (Myanmar)

From mesmerizing Bagan we flew to Heho which is the closest airport to the largest lake of Myanmar, Inle Lake. It was literally so refreshing to arrive here! The scorching heat of the plains of Bagan was replaced by a pleasant and bearable 25° C, with plenty of freshness offered by the abundant nature. We drove to Kalaw which is a little town in the hills not far from Inle Lake, where we spent the night in an ancient colonialRead more

Bagan (Myanmar)

Bagan, the treasure of Myanmar, or perhaps even of the entire Asian continent is an ancient city in the middle of the country. It is home to the largest and most beautiful concentration of pagodas, temples and stupas dispersed over green and yellow plains we have ever seen. What to do? Climb on a pagoda to watch sunset We flew to Bagan from Mandalay in the dark of the night, leaving one of the most amazing spectacles unfolded before ourRead more
