    Many months ago, for reasons that now elude us, we planned one night in Hue. Its on the mid-Vietnam coastal tourist trail so that was probably a factor. But we in no way considered anything to do with timing...

    No one in Vietnam calls it Ho Chi Minh. All the written signs still say Saigon. Saigon is a much nicer name anyway. Saigon can best be summed up by Dans thoughts at the end of our first day: How do you cross the fucking road? There are no apparent road rules...

    There isnt a whole lot to see in Kampot itself, but its a good place to rent a moped and roam around on your own. Unlike the cities in Cambodia, the traffic isnt like a relentless herd of stampeding buffalo scooters....

    If my last post seemed a bit of a downer, we spent our only day in Phnom Penh going to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (commonly known as S21 Security Prison 21) and the Killing Fields....

    I had no idea what to expect of Cambodia. A well-travelled friend of mine once told me it was her favourite place in Asia, but people have all sorts of crazy opinions. Im sure Bangkok is someones favourite place in Asia. I sort of ...

    My first impression of Bangkok was quite good because there was only one taxi rank at the airport. Upon landing in Phuket we were greeted with approximately ten different taxi stands, all with people shouting fare offers. What are ...
