Uninteresting yet charming: Battambang, Cambodia

There are places that are not interesting, but still you want to be there. Places where you don’t have the feeling of wasting time despite not doing anything. When you travel it’s easy to fall into a trap of constant search for attractions, traveling only to “score” another temple, museum or monument. Battambang is a perfect escape, as there isn’t ...

Fortified city of Alba Iulia, Romania

Angkor temples, Siem Reap, Cambodia

A lot has been written about the temples of Angkor. No wonder, it is probably the most famous place in South-east Asia.

Bamboo train ride: Battambang, Cambodia

It was a unique experience. When we got there, the only thing I could think of was: Oh gosh, we are such a tourists! A village in the middle of nothing, a couple of wooden sheds on piles, made of anything that the local people had at hand and a few kilometers of rail tracks used to transport… tourists mainly. ...

Angkor’s gateway: Siem Reap, Cambodia

We got to Siem Reap by night time, tired, after a long 28 hour trip between boats, buses, trains, tuk-tuks and taxis. It was already dark, but after finding a place to stay, we went out to visit a nearby night market on the opposite side of the river, a place with lots of movement that sells a bit of ...

Last but best surprise: Koh Tao, Thailand

After seeing Railay, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, another beach destination couldn’t impress us that much. WRONG! Koh Tao was by far our favourite island in the gulf of Thailand. Koh Tao is a small island, with just 21 sq. km and a population of 1400. It is one of the world’s most popular destinations for scuba ...

What if there was no Full Moon Party? Koh Phangan, Thailand

If it wasn’t for Full Moon Party’s odd fame, Koh Phangan would be a quiet, averagely interesting island with few beautiful beaches and almost any attractions. The popularity of the beach craziness organized every month transformed the island into a party mecca, with thousands of people coming here to sunbathe and celebrate with alcohol. I wonder if the people living ...

Full Moon Party: Koh Phangan, Thailand

We are entering the island, going on the pick-up to our hotel on the main road going through the south coast of Koh Phangan. On the right we can see dozens of shops with fluorescent T-shirts, on the left posters with party locations, in front signs leading to thousands of rooms and houses for rent and next to us a ...
