Boating Across the Tonle Sap

November 15, 2009

From Battambang we took a 5-6 hour boat ride to Siem Reap via the Tonle Sap, which in Khmer means roughly “Great Lake.” The boat was small, with about eight rows of wooden benches under an aluminum roof. It rained in the morning, which was actually nice because it kept the air cool for a […]

Hello Cambodia

November 9, 2009

We’re in Cambodia now. We crossed the border at Ha Tien, a newly opened crossing basically on the coast where Cambodia and Vietnam meet. We took a mini bus with a few other folks to Kampot, a small town near the Gulf of Thailand with vivid architectural reminders of French occupation (and progress). My favorite […]

Phu Quoc is a beautiful Vietnamese island at the very southern point. A gem in the midst of a huge transition. The dusty roads and rural villages are quickly changing as all roads are under major construction, with their little airport becoming an international hub in 2012. This will become a popular European holiday destination, […]

Saigon

November 3, 2009

We came to Saigon having heard many warnings that this bustling city would be overwhelming, with 6 million motorbikes zooming around the streets, and a pulse that far out-paces the rest of Vietnam.

North of Nha Trang

November 2, 2009

Here are a few photos that I’m little late posting. Decent internet has been hard to come by as we travel through the Mekong Delta. Anyway, these photos are from a day trip to Doc Let Beach, up the coast north of Nha Trang. Our friends John and Phuong, pictured, led the way. Share

Nha Trang – I love this place

October 17, 2009

We’re currently in Nha Trang, and man, do I love this place. The first photo in the slideshow is the view from our hotel room, which is costing us a steep $8/night. We spent the first day on the beach, relaxing in beach chairs under a big bamboo umbrella. Tough life, but someone’s got to […]

Tombs and Pagodas galore

October 9, 2009

Hue is a great city for visiting tombs and pagodas until you can’t take seeing old stuff any more. Everything is really spread out, so one day we walked around on our own to see what we could see. The next day we hired guides/drivers. For $10 each we got taken to the highlighted sights […]
