Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng – Highway to Hell?

Once you google “Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng” you’ll find tons of articles on how bad the trip is, that even people who are normally not prone to motion sickness get motion sick, that the road is in a bad condition and that this 7 hour ride will be the worst ride of your entire life… Continue reading “Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng – Highway to Hell?”

How to get to Ta Cu Mountain, Vietnam

Once you’re in Mui Ne, about 6 hours north of Saigon, you’ll probably end up doing nothing and enjoying the beaches. At least, that’s what we heard about the little village of Mui Ne. Curiously, we didn’t find the oh-so-beautiful beaches. Instead, we did a pretty crazy tour to Ta Cu Mountain with our own scooter.  Continue reading “How to get to Ta Cu Mountain, Vietnam”

The title says it all: when we decided to visit Ream Nationalpark outside Sihanoukville, we didn’t know that we signed up for one of the most strenuous hikes, clothes soaked in sweat, beautiful nature and being some centimetres away from a Tarantula with her babies… Continue reading “Sweat, Nature and Tarantulas – Ream Nationalpark, Cambodia”

Kampot has to offer Continue reading “Lovely Kampot and Bokor Hill Station”

How to see Luang Prabang from across the Mekong

If you want to get away from beautiful but touristy Luang Prabang, get on a ferry and cross the Mekong to visit Chompet district. It won’t be as spectacular as Luang Prabang, but you will experience rustic Lao life, some Wats, a cave and a beautiful view of Luang Prabang. Of the WHOLE Luang Prabang, not only part of it because you are standing right in the middle on Mount Phousi) Continue reading “How to see Luang Prabang from across the Mekong”

Cooking Class in Ubud

Ubud is famous for its’ great variety of good and healthy food. No wonder, cooking classes are spread over the village in the heart of Bali. With such a great choice, it can be difficult to choose a cooking class. We chose Pulu Cooking Class as we read not many (at that time 4 reviews) but only excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. And we wouldn’t have been disappointed.  Continue reading “Cooking Class in Ubud”
