    Cambodia & Vietnam

    Bangkok, Thailand

    You either love or hate Bangkok. This city has so much to offer in terms of culture, restaurants, amusement and business but it contains also some of the sneakiest Thais there are. It can easily happen to you that you ask someone for direction to a temple and he will tell you that its closed but that he can bring you to a much nicer place instead. Also taxi drivers will often tell you that their meter is broken in order to negotiate a fix price which is way too high. You can be angry about that behavior or take it easy as they just try to make a living and with a minimum of preparation you will do well in this fascinating city.

    There are countless shopping possibilities like MBK or Siam shopping center, there is Kao San road where all the backpackers start their evening and where you can go shopping or dinking or get that long awaited PhD you always wanted. At Kao San you can also easily make friends and continue with them to some sport events like a Thai box night or a ping pong show.

    And there is the Kings palace with its beautiful golden temples, and Wat Pho with its enormous lying Buddha and don’t forget to visit the golden mount even though it can be quite intense to climb it in Bangkok’s afternoon heat.

    Cambodia & Vietnam

    Angkor Wat, Siem Reap

    From Bangkok you can easily make your way to Siem Reap by Minivan. It’s a cheap and rather convenient option. If you don’t want to wait at the Cambodian border until the big bus is filled up you can also team up with some fellow travelers and share a cab.

    Once you made it there it is pretty easy to move around. Siem Reap is rather small and therefore you can walk everywhere in the evening. You can’t miss Pub street where you can eat and drink a whole evening and when the bill arrives complain that the waiter only charged you for the last round. There was also a nice night market nearby but it burned down meanwhile.

    But the real reason why people go to Siem Reap is Angkor Wat. This ancient and rediscovered temple city. The area it covers is huge and therefore it is recommended that you invest two to three days to discover it. It is also recommended that you hire a TucTuc driver to drive and show you around but in case you are super heat resistant you can also try to do it by bike.

    Most of the temples were covered with soil and plants when they were rediscovered but with the help of many foreign countries, including Switzerland, most of them have been restored. With those massive tree roots on their walls some of the temples look like they had been copied from the “Jungle book” but actually it was the other way around.
    Not all the temples are at the same place but there is one that is definitely worth driving to – Bantey Srei. It is definitely not the biggest of those temples but probably the most beautiful one. Its reliefs and statues are simply astonishing.

    Cambodia & Vietnam

    Ho-Chi-Minh-City, Vietnam

    Ho-Chi-Minh-City or Saigon as it used to be called is a modern and energetic city with skyscrapers that contain helicopter landing zones. But it is also an Asian city and crossing a road in that city is a story of its own. There are so many scooters in this country that they can’t stop the whole traffic for every pedestrian who wants to cross the road. Therefore, you just walk and they make their way around you.

    The Cu Chi tunnels are also definitely worth visiting. You learn a lot about the Vietnam war and see some reconstructed tunnels and traps. But as it is still a socialist country you shouldn’t expect to receive too accurate information. At least the “documentary” movie you get to watch was definitely produced by the propaganda office.

    Cambodia & Vietnam

    Mekong Delta, Vietnam

    As only a bit pricier tours can be booked online it is strongly recommended to book your tours in person when you are in Vietnam. This can be done quite short term. Therefore, arriving in Ho-Chi-Minh-City in the evening and leaving for a two-day tour through the Mekong delta the next morning is easily possible.

    On this tour you learn and see a lot about how people live on this river delta. You get to explore the tiniest channels, go to a local market and visit a rice noodle factory. As interesting as this all is, the real highlight is the floating market of Cai Be you visit really early the next morning. Other than the one in Bangkok which is only set up for the tourists this one is real and there is a lot of trade happening. The salesman put their merchandise on a stick and the customers drive to them to buy their goods. Its mostly fruits and vegetables and you get the best pineapple there you have ever tasted.

    Cambodia & Vietnam

    Nah Trang, Vietnam

    The beach of Nah Trang is a good example why a lot of the tourist facilities are owned and operated by westerners. Because if you decide to spend some time at the beach you have basically two options. You can get everything you need from the locals or go to the sailing club which is owned by a guy from Australia. If you go with the local option you need to pay one guy to get a chair, another guy for the umbrella, a third guy for the toilet and a fourth guy for the shower which is actually a water hose. And now you are still missing a drink. If you go for the second option you have all this at one place and don’t even pay for it as long as you consume there. You can also book dive trips there but just make sure you don’t empty too many chars the night before.

    The diving in Nah Trang is actually quite decent but it could be way better if the fishermen wouldn’t set up their nets right next to the reefs. Unfortunately, the government hasn’t either realized that the country could make more money from diving tourism than from fishing or it didn’t yet find a way to let the fishermen participate in that additional wealth.

    Cambodia & Vietnam

    Hoi An, Vietnam

    Hoi An is not only a village full of art but also a piece of art itself. It is full with tailors, shoe makers and local artists and you can basically get every piece of cloth or accessory you can imagine tailored.

    Besides getting tailored shoes and cloths you also have some nice dining places, a decent beach, rice fields and trucks with megaphones spreading their political propaganda. You also find a bunch of backpacker bars where you can party like there is no tomorrow.

    Cambodia & Vietnam

    Hanoi & Halong Bay, Vietnam

    Compared to Ho-Chi-Min-City Hanoi seems to be decades back in time. There is no visible big business district and traffic feels even more chaotic. Business is organized by streets where one street offers for example scooter supplies, the other street offers kitchen supplies. Another remarkable thing in this dazzling city are those little street-food restaurants with the tiny plastic chairs and of corse the grilled frog legs you find at many corners. This seems to be one of the heritages from the French colonial time. Talking about street-food, there is one restaurant that has the unique concept of bringing the best street-food in town together in one place. It is arranged like a German beer garden with wooden tables and benches in the center surrounded by all those little stands from where you can arrange your dinner.

    Halong Bay is a complete different story. A three-hour bumpy drive away from Hanoi you board your boat and enter the mystical bay of Halong. Looking at these massive rocks erecting from the water and surrounded by this mystical fog you do not wonder why it is listed as a UNESCO world heritage and why it was chosen as the headquarter of one of James Bond’s antagonists.

    Cambodia & Vietnam


    Hongkong island is probably one of the most compact places to live. As there is not much space on this highly demanded place to live and work everything reaches to the sky. Even the trams have more than one story. If you want to observe all this from above “The peak” is a great option. A cable car brings you to the top of Victoria peak from where you can enjoy a fantastic view over the entire island and a part of the mainland.

    Talking about the mainland, from there every evening you can enjoy an outstanding lightshow including most of the buildings belonging to Hongkong’s skyline. The only downside of it is, that the majority of Hongkong’s electricity and therefore also the electricity used for the light show is produced by burning fossils. If you want to escape a bit the big city life, the Ocean park is a great option. This amusement park feels a bit like a mix of sealife, six-flags magic mountain and a zoo. It has rollercoasters and dolphin shows, aquariums and dance shows and is just a great place to spend a relaxed day.
