Five. Five dollar. five dollar tour. I explored Hpa-an in Myanmar on a budget.

I usually motorbike when traveling and see all the sights on a DIY tour. This is mostly because I like the freedom of riding around and doing exploring on the cheap. At the Soe Brothers Guesthouse in Hpa-An, Myanmar, I bucked the trend and joined a tour.…

Visit Kanchanaburi, Thailand to see what life was like on the Death Railway

The sleepy Kanchanaburi province, just a couple hours west of Bangkok, is a popular getaway thanks to its mountains, waterfalls and a pleasant provincial capital. Dotted throughout the province, however, are signs of one of the many atrocities committed…

[new blog post] The Khmer ruins in the middle of Thailand show just how powerful Cambodia once was

Approaching the Muang Sing Historical Park outside Kanchanaburi was a little surreal to me. I had been living in Cambodia for two years, and the differences between that country and Thailand are striking as soon as you cross the border. So to see a rather…

The World Cup game was madness. Here's my write-up about it. Go Cambodia!

Cambodia’s failed effort to beat Singapore on June 12 in its bid for the 2018 World Cup was like something out of a scene in Lord of the Rings. Not what was happening on the field, though. The madness was at the ticket gates just outside the Olympic…

Going wild at the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center [new blog post]

If there’s anything I’ve learned about Southeast Asian zoos, it’s that you can get ridiculously close to the animals compared to anywhere else in the world with all those pesky “rules” and “precautions.”. That’s never been more true than at the Phnom…

Even when trying to avoid riding elephants, things are not so cut and dry. More and more people are wizening up to the fact that riding elephants is not a good thing, so tour companies are offering trips that involve feeding, cleaning and watching…

[New blog post ] Getting from Bagan to Mrauk U by bus

Mrauk U in eastern Myanmar is a fascinating place to visit due to its remoteness and 15-th century ruins. It is, however, a pain in the ass to get to from most places in the country. There is, however, a reliable overland route to get from Bagan to Mrauk…

Coming into Myanmar, I was expecting to pay handsomely for the experience. Fortunately, a three-week trip all over the country only cost me $855 (including the flight from Thailand). Myanmar, or Burma, if you'd prefer, opened up to tourists just a few…

[New blog post] A couple months ago I found out that Songkran in Thailand is a wild as its reputation.

During Sonkran, nobody is safe. The Thai New Year festivities involve dousing anyone and everyone with water as a way to beat the heat and ring in the coming year. The three-day holidays is celebrated everywhere in the country with water guns, buckets and…

[New blog post] A 5-day motorbike ride through northern Thailand's Mae Hong Son Loop

The Mae Hong Son loop was top of my list of things I wanted to do in Southeast Asia. I heard a lots about this 700 kilometer (435 mile) journey from Chiang Mai, with most of the praise being heaped on the gorgeous scenery, the tricky roads and the…

The Last of Southeast Asia's Irrawaddy Dolphins

The rare Irrawaddy dolphin's numbers are dwindling to critical levels in the Mekong River. You can still see them up close in Kratie, Cambodia by boat.

I had a  damn fine cup of coffee in northern Cambodia. 
When it comes to coffee, Cambodia will never be able to compete with the scale of neighboring Vietnam’s vast operations. While Vietnam is the second largest producer of coffee in the world, Cambodia has been carving out its own niche with some [...]
