South East Asia By Bus


Ao Nang Beach – Krabi Thailand – From Siem Reap we hoped a very quick flight to Bangkok where we spent 5 lovely days at the Navalai, eating in our favourite restaurant Hemlock and generally enjoying the city. From BKK we flew down to Krabi and then onto Ao Nang […]

Cambodia
Siem Reap & Angkor Wat  We spent two nights in Kampong Chang at a reasonable hotel close to the Mekong river – there is no real reason to stay in Kampong Champ. It is just a big, noisy, dirty Cambodian town but neither of us were very keen to get […]

Champasak Laos Sometimes when travelling you come across a town or village that is just ‘right’, for us Champasak is one of those places. It is just a sleepy little village on the banks on the Mekong about 30 kms south of Paske and 10 kms from the Khmer temple ruins […]

Luang Prabang
Luang Prabang Laos Luang Prabang would have to be one of my favourite places in the world. An old French colonial town LPB has retained its old French colonial charm with a bit of Laos added in…the reason it has remained so authentic is due to its remote location and […]

Chiang Rai Thailand – We have been to Chiang Rai so many times that now arriving there is a little like coming home. One of the things I most most looking forward to was dinner and a few drinks at Rosie’s bar (its really called Rico’s bar but we named […]
