What do you think about cruising? If you think it’s just for rich, old people who enjoy dinner dances, you’d be wrong, these days there is a ship for everyone. In January this year we enjoyed our first ever cruise, in April we took our second.We wouldn’t take two if we hadn’t loved it. We […]

Bad Internet. Kampot Cambodia.

Kampot Cambodia

I’ve never experienced internet as bad and as unpredictable as here in Kampot Cambodia, anywhere. OK, it was really bad in our guest house in Phnom Penh, but we left after 1 night so it didn’t really have time to get to me, but Kampot, on the river, is a nice place, we wanted to […]

Hotel in Battambang Cambodia

Family room hotel Battambang Cambodia

  We loved Battambang, this is the sort of town that’s great to just hang out for a few days, or weeks. It has a good vibe, quieter streets and a lovely riverside walk with a playground for the kids ( and grown ups!). The area around Battambang is also wonderful to explore, you’ll find […]

Where to Stay in Bangkok: Silom

Silom Bangkok. Eating bugs.

We keep coming back to Bangkok because we love it. Also because Bangkok is a transport hub of this part of the world. That title has shifted towards Kuala Lumpur recently with the rise of Air Asia, but Bangkok is still where you need to be for overland connections. It’s also cheaper than Kuala Lumpur, […]

Getting to Siem Reap from Bangkok

Getting to Cambodia 013 (550x448)

It’s a lot easier to get to Siem Reap from Bangkok than it was in 2000. The last time we travelled overland in South East Asia we had to cross the border on the back of a pick-up truck. These days you can do it in relative comfort. Good buses take you right the way […]
