Sleepy Sapa in the extreme North is a major port of call on the Vietnam tourist trail, even though it’s quite remote, stuck up next to the border with China. You go there to experience the ethnic communities and their daily village life and to trek around the jaw-dropping rice terraces that are cut into the mountainside. Read More »

From Pakse we headed south to the up-and-coming travellers mecca of the 4,000 Islands, situated in the Mekhong River at least 500km from the sea, within the heart of Indochina.

We were slightly worried that Vang Vieng would be nothing more than a party town with 18 year old gap-yearers throwing up in the street. After all, it’s infamous for tubing but we were pleasantly surprised. Read More »

After a two day boat journey down the Mekhong River from Huay Xai, in freezing temperatures and driving rain, with Carly being sick over-board, an encounter with a strange Russian, and Ben reduced to drinking neat Sangsom (Thai rum), we made it to Luang Prabang, Laos. Read More »

We waited for the public bus to Pai, due to leave Sappong at 12.30pm. It never arrived and so we waited in the blistering heat, nibbling on a sweet jam-topped "pizza" and being harassed by the village-drunk. Read More »

We instantly fell in love with Cave Lodge as soon as we arrived. We were greeted with an open-plan wooden communal space, decorated with a hammock, cushions galore, a two-person day bed made from rubber tires(!), a table-tennis table, a swing and large fireplace in the centre. Read More »

We visited Khao Lak, a beach-resort town 70k north of Phuket on the Andaman coast. Unfortunately, the town and the surrounding area was devastated by the 2004 tsunami and has been re-built in a very Western way, lacking Thai character. Read More »
