Our Top-5 Favorite Spots in Southeast Asia premium
Oh boy, this is gonna be a hard choice! Traveling around Southeast Asia has been an incredible adventure for us.

Yangon: exploring Myanmar’s biggest city premium
Our final stop on our trip to Myanmar was Yangon, the biggest and former capital city. Yangon is a fascinating city. On one side of the road you have old, crumbling colonial English buildings, and on the other side there would be a stinking market full of fresh fish, meat, vegetables – you name it, […]

Inle Lake, Myanmar: touring the lake on a longboat premium
Inle Lake was one of our favourite places in Myanmar. The main town, Nyaungshwe, had lots of things catering to travellers like massages (which were amazing following our trek!) and pancake restaurants. We enjoyed wandering around the town, observing the boats zooming up and down the canals, spending time in the markets, and chatting to […]

Trekking from Kalaw to Inle Lake, Myanmar: the best thing we have ever done premium

Zooming around temples in Bagan, Myanmar premium
Bagan was a nice contrast to the madness of Mandalay – much less traffic and far easier to find places to eat. The main attraction in Bagan is the multitude of temples, of which thousands are dotted across the plains around Nyaung U (the main town, where we stayed), Old Bagan, and New Bagan. The […]

Getting lost in Mandalay’s back streets premium
Mandalay has grown on us. We have found charming scenes in what started off as a dirty, noisy, unfamiliar city. Kids waving and shouting mingalaba (hello) as they tear past on motorbikes, the women giving you a shy smile when you smile at them, and locals going about their daily business – purchasing rice or […]

Braving the dust and noise in Mandalay premium
Whew! As a first foray into Myanmar, Mandalay is surely plunging into the deep end (although I’m not sure that there is a shallow end in this country!). We arrived via Air Asia – being the only plane at an international airport was a bit strange! Luckily Air Asia provides a free bus for its […]
