Ao Nang Beach – Krabi Thailand

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 beach. It is a beautiful part of the world although very touristy, lucky for us due to the season there weren't too many people about. W...

BUT the trip from Champasak was one challenging trip... We booke...

While in the season it is quite a busy place with travellers heading to the Wat when we were there we were the on...

Vientiane to Champasak Laos

Vientiane to Champasak Laos Our journey from the Laos capital of Vientiane to Champasak to the far southern part of the country was one of slow, hot local buses and a few towns with not much in them. Our route pretty much followed the Mekong and the landscape was pretty flat and not terribly interesting. The main north / south road is like slow going with cows, chickens, goats and the odd child al...
