What to do when you are hyped for a travel? Visit Philippines!

If you are looking for a place where nature is abundant, Philippines is one of the travel destinations you should not miss to visit. Just imagine a country that consists of 7, 107 islands for you to discover. It is going to be an overwhelming experience, isn’t it?

Over the years, Philippines have maintained its natural beauty, which gives the tourists the reason to visit the country over and over again. Well, that is the perks you will get when Philippines is in your top travel destination.

Most Tourists and even expats that I know head for Sihanoukville (Kampong Som) when they want to get away to the beach for the weekend. However, I find it too crowded, too noisy, and too full of obnoxious tourists

Stepping through the enormous wooden gates into Knai Bang Chatt resort, visitors are instantly transported to an altogether different world. A winding stone pathway will guide you to the reception area, where upon your arrival you will be greeted by smiling, fully English-speaking staff, and presented with a cool washcloth and fresh

If you want temples, Bangkok’s got ‘em – from famous landmarks such as the spectacular Wat Phrakeo & Wat Arun, to lesser known but equally beautiful temples like Wat Samphanthawongsaram Worawiharn & the Erewan Shrine, there are noteworthy temples tucked away in virtually every corner of the city.

As it had been a while since my last trip to Cambodia, and visiting that country is always an absolute pleasure, I decided to hop over & join him.

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.

When I first started out on my trip to Cambodia, I had planned to see Angkor Wat and then head back to my home in Bangkok. Instead, I ended up falling completely and hopelessly in love with Cambodia! My planned couple of days turned into weeks, which then turned into a whole month, and I was still sad to go.

...So I pull the pin on my family friendly accommodation in Kampot and escape to the hills near Kep. I end up at the Vines retreat which came recommended by another hotel guest in Phnom Penh.
