Romance and Old Charm in Hoi An

We are now in our 6th week of our great SE Asia adventure, and whilst we are missing home a little I have found that nowhere has felt more like home to us than Hoi An. This statement may seem a little strange without context so let me explain. This city and its old quarter... Continue Reading →

Adventures in Halong Bay

Arriving in Cat Ba was a breath of fresh air to us. Having already spent some time in Hanoi and Sapa, we were ready for some time spent by the sea and we weren’t disappointed. Before I talk about this however, I’ll just touch on why I didn’t write about Sa Pa. Whilst the scenery... Continue Reading →

WELCOME TO HANOI – BEEP BEEEEP!

Exchange rate: 1 GBP = 30,523.50 VND We arrived in Hanoi on the 1st October and were immediately stunned by the volume of moped traffic in the city. Not only that, but the seemingly non-existent road laws here, and the incessant beeping (something I’ve already developed a real annoyance for)........ When we arrived, just crossing...

From Pai, to Chiang Rai

Our next stop in our trip to the north of Thailand was the temple-famous town of Chiang Rai. Known for its artistically decorated temples and various museums, this was a place often described as a smaller version of Chiang Mai. After our relaxed visit to Pai, the last thing we wanted was to return to... Continue Reading →

We arrived in Pai at around 13:30 after a rather rough bus journey from Chiang Mai. As mentioned previously, the route consisted of 762... Continue Reading →

Chiang Mai

Having arrived early on Sunday morning, it didn’t take us long to realise that Chiang Mai was a completely different city to Bangkok. This was a great source of relief having booked ourselves in for a week here. It is far less hectic (apart from the ring road around the old city), with less of... Continue Reading →

Getting to Chiang Mai

Mia and I decided to take a VIP night bus from Mo Chit (AKA Chatuchak bus terminal) having heard very mixed reviews for the train. We had been told that the main company that operated the route (the Transport Co. Ltd) had buses that left the station at 19:00 and 21:00 so we arrived at... Continue Reading →

15 Hours to Bangkok

Exchange rate at the time of writing: £1 = 42.71 Baht We started our exciting journey to Bangkok on the 12/09/18 from the sprawling Dublin airport. Checking in our huge backpacks, the long queues through security and the slow boarding process all seemed to fly by as our anticipation and nerves seemed to build. The... Continue Reading →
