Set around the most beautiful countryside I have seen in South East Asia.

This town has fast become something of a tourist trap. I believe a few years ago this was a brilliant place to visit and use as a starting point to explore the surrounding landscape.

Now it has become more of a construction site with vast hotels springing up across the town.

I think in a few years life will change too much and it will be a booming tourist spot but will it still be attractive?

However the good news is apart from maybe one night when you arrive, the town doesn’t need to be your base for the duration of your time.

So use the time wisely, go trekking, visit a homestay and live in a real tribal village or climb a mountain!



October 2019

New month new Country!

Yes, that’s right I am now in Vietnam ( 9 months later than planned😂) but as British Rail used to say better late than never.

Okay, I am only staying for a few weeks but this is a reconnaissance mission for next year when I will travel for 3 months from south to north.

So a few days in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi. Go to Sapa and to climb a mountain called Fansipan the highest point in Indochina which at 3.143m is called “the Roof of Indochina”

Also, I paid my first visit to Myanmar and visited a beautiful city called Yangon. Which has some of the nicest people I have met and the best food in terms of taste in South East Asia so far.
