Vang Vieng, to Love or to Hate?

I have to admit that after visiting Thailand, we had grown accustomed to the friendliness of the locals. On the other hand, in Laos, it was a totally different story. Smiling locals were actually hard to find. It’s not that they were deliberately rude, they just weren’t particularly friendly like the Thais. But this really […]

Is Luang Prabang Still Worth a Visit?

The small town of Luang Prabang is located in northern Laos and has one of the most beautiful settings in south-east Asia. Sandwiched between the Mekong and the Nam Khan River, Luang Prabang is oh so pretty and ever so romantic! This old French colonial town became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 and […]

Checking in: Our review of Sara Resort, Koh Rong Sanloem

I’m not going to lie, we love tropical islands. The clear blue sea, white sand, palm trees, what’s not to love? During our trip to Cambodia, we made sure we visited Koh Rong Sanloem, an island just off the coast of Sihanoukville. We stayed four nights on this paradise island and quite frankly we wish […]

Taking the Slow Boat in Laos to Luang Prabang

A slow boat cruise down the mighty Mekong river was high on our list of things to do in Laos. In fact it was one of the most exciting experiences we had planned for the Southeast Asia leg of our trip. As we cruised slowly down the Mekong over two days before reaching Luang Prabang, […]

10 Things to Do in Chiang Rai, Thailand

Chiang Rai has the reputation for being rather boring and because of that many visitors to Northern Thailand give it a miss.

Finding Peace and Paradise on Koh Lanta, Thailand

After three days on beautiful but super busy Railay Beach, we caught a ferry to Koh Lanta, another amazing Thailand beach destination. Koh Lanta was the perfect Thailand island for us. It’s not overcrowded, it’s laid-back and it’s ever so quiet. If you’re looking to escape the crowds and the party scene, Koh Lanta is […]

Everything you Need to Know About Railay Beach

When we decided to travel around Thailand earlier this year, choosing a beach destination was a struggle. There’s so many to choose from! Well, I guess that’s a good problem to have. We narrowed our options down to three places, Railay Beach, Koh Lanta and Koh Lipe. In the end, because of their close proximity […]
