Laos

Laos   Next on our list was little landlocked Laos. We had travelled overnight again on a coach from Siem Reap in Cambodia and arrived in Vientiane. Before arriving in Laos, admittedly none of us had done much research on the country and had just presumed that Vientiane, the capital city of Laos would have…

Siem Reap & Angkor

Siem Reap and Angkor   The big one! Let’s be honest if you’re planning on going to Cambodia then your biggest plan is to go to Angkor and see the famous Angkor Wat temple. For me it was a little bit different, although Angkor Wat was super high on my list of things to do…

Sihanoukville

Sihanoukville Not the most popular place in SE Asia for backpackers, but after a heavy 6 weeks on the bikes in Vietnam and a busy couple of days in Phnom Penh we decided to head south towards the chilled out city of Sihanoukville. I don’t really have much to say about it here as we…

Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh Phnom Penh was our first stop off in Cambodia, we only had a couple of days here as we were on a tight schedule so that I could meet up with Charlie later on in Siem Reap. Our first day wasn’t all too exciting, we found a hostel, dumped our bags and went…

Intro to Cambodia

  Cambodia – Although having a population of just 15 million, being a large country Cambodia has a lot to offer. From ancient wonders such as Angkor Wat to The Killing Fields and genocide museum, if you’re just feeling like relaxing has some amazing beaches around Sihanoukville where you can just kick back and relax….

Ho Chi Minh

Ho Chi Minh – The capital of Vietnam was our last city before we left for Cambodia. From Nha Trang we did two 4 or 5 hour trips with a stop off in Phan Thiet as we were in no rush to leave and wanted to make the most out of having our bikes one…

Nha Trang

Nha Trang   From Hoi An to Nha Trang took us 2 days and roughly two 6 hour rides with an overnight stay in Quy Nhon. We had one main goal whilst we were in Nha Tang and that was to get our Open Water Diving qualification. We set ourselves up in a hostel on…

Hoi An

  Now we were back on the mainland, one long road allll the way down to Hoi An. Or at least we first thought until we discovered Phong Nha-Ke National park was half way down. Was a drive straight from Haiphong to Hoi An would have taken us about 18 hours we decided to break…

Hanoi & Ha Long Bay

Hanoi & Ha long Bay   After spending 4 weeks in China and Hong Kong, Hanoi was a huuuge difference for us! We had gone from not seeing any tourists, nobody being able to speak English and no party scene to the complete opposite!! The moment we arrived at Hanoi Backpackers I knew this was…

Biking through Vietnam

I imagine if you are reading this and thinking of riding a motorbike through Vietnam that you were probably inspired through the ‘Top Gear: Vietnam special’ as I was! Although the three of them ran into a few hiccups along the way, in my opinion those guys made it look easy!! My experience of biking…

Vietnam

Vietnam – A country with amazing history of its controversial war, stunning natural beauty and full of backpackers I couldn’t wait to travel here. I had heard so many people say it was their favourite country in SE Asia and the thought of being free to travel wherever we wanted was exciting but daunting at the same…
