Practical information and one day trips: Hoi An, Vietnam

I already wrote about how much I love Hoi an here, however, I thought it’s worth to write also a practical guide from this town. I won’t write about the history, because I’m not an expert, but I think it’s good to read about it at least a bit in a guide or in the internet to understand its importance ...

Gorgeous Hoi An, Vietnam

It was love at first sight. The shabby blue and yellow walls, old wooden houses of Chinese merchants, colorful lanterns, small shops, proximity to a beautiful beach and a quiet countryside. I knew it would be pretty, as everybody praise this town. But still, I didn’t know it will be that gorgeous. We had crossed already half of Vietnam. Until ...

Great last week in the south: Kampot and Kep, Cambodia

Kampot wasn’t in our original plans. But I made a mistake. A big planning mistake that had little or no influence on our goal. We were in Phnom Penh ready to buy tickets for a bus to Vietnam when I realized that we couldn’t get our visas on the border and that we needed to go to an embassy to ...

Noisy, dusty and crowded: Phnom Penh, Cambodia

I have to admit that the Cambodian capital disappointed me. And tired me out. Phnom Penh is a huge, loud, polluted, dusty, jammed and averagely interesting city. We got to Phnom Penh late in the afternoon. The bus stopped somewhere next to one of the main streets. As usual, we didn’t have any hotel reservation, so quickly we became an ...
