  • Spoil yourself on Sukhumvit

    Jackie Beaty

    For any woman like me who enjoys a bit of shopping; Bangkok is guaranteed to not only satisfy every desire but break your wallet but your feet, shoulders and back in the process.

    The danger and the lure is of course that as the shops are open from 10am till 10pm everyday, it’s impossible not to keep going on adrenalin and sheer greed.

  • Misty Milieu

    Nguy Ha

    When the train started to rattle and shake as it began to ease out of the station, I knew we were about to escape the bustling city. I was longing to experience the pristine landscapes and fresh air of the far north.

    It was my fourth trip to Y Ty, but it seems a place that I always anticipate my return to. Despite visiting countries throughout Asia and Europe I still get that tingle of anticipation as I board the night train to Lao Cai, take the winding roads to Y Ty and think of the old house of Mrs. Si and the traditional herbal bath in a wooden barrel.

  • Getting around corruption anyway I can

    Eric Gonzalez

    I was the Director of an Anti-Poverty program and all of my staff were convinced I needed to pay a bribe. They all gave me my opinions on how much I needed to pay. 30% of the overall value and a bottle of Jack Daniels was the consensus. I ignored their advice and when the goods arrived I headed down to the seaport city of Sihanoukville and started on my task of getting my goods through without paying a bribe. I had the paperwork that said I didn’t have to pay, I was well dressed, I was sure of myself, and I had no clue what I was doing.

  • Touring the White Building

    Sophie Mensdorff

    Almost every Phnom Penh expat knows the White Building, the sub-standard apartment building (some call it a slum) on Sothearos Boulevard, opposite Meta House. Most people have walked past; some might even have taken pictures of the building, built by Cambodia’s famous architect Vann Molyvann. However, very few actually go inside. The reasons are obvious: it is run down and doesn’t look safe. The building is said to house prostitution and drugs, and at night it’s a meeting place for gangs.
