[New blog post] See Disney's Frozen in Real Life at the Harbin Ice Festival

Ever since I saw the BBC excellent Wild China documentary, I knew I had to go to see the Harbin Ice Festival for myself.  The world’s largest ice festival is known throughout China and brings in enormous crowds to see its bright lights and towering ice…

[New blog post] So I Caught Dengue Fever in Cambodia

Some 40,000 people suffer from dengue fever annually in Cambodia, and now I'm one of them. Top-notch treatment is available at the new Royal Phnom Penh Hospital, but you're going to need to pay top dollar for this level of care.

Good, bad and ugly at OneFC's debut in Cambodia

OneFC made its much-hyped debut in Phnom Penh with its Sept. 12 “Rise of the Kingdom” event. The Singapore-based MMA promotion is the largest in Asia and its arrival to Phnom Penh was meant to symbolize that Cambodia’s arrival on the international martial…

The sad state of the troubled zoo in Kampot

About ten kilomers up the western bank of the Kampot river from the town is a shabby zoo that looks like it's fallen on hard times once again. Despite being featuring a variety of A-list animals (lions, tigers, bears, elephants and much more) and a…

Monkeys, climbing and more. 5 things to do in Kampong Cham.

Kampong Cham is typically a short stopover for people coming or going to Ratanakiri, Mondulkiri or Laos. There’s isn’t a whole lot to do in this provincial capital about 3 hours from Phnom Penh, but’s it’s a pleasant stay with a massive riverfront area,…

Country Roads: Phnom Penh to Kampong Cham by Bicycle

The 140 kilometer stretch of National Highway 7 between Phnom Penh and Kampong Cham is in dire shape regardless of what vehicle you're on. Going by bicycle is especially tough, with unpaved roads, unmarked lanes and an endless cloud of red dust.…

[New blog post] 5 Reasons to Bicycle in Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh’s streets are clogged and chaotic. If it isn’t traffic that’s blocking the way, it’s an impromptu flood during the rainy season. The roads can be dangerous, with everyone on a motorbike or driving an SUV seemingly on their phones and oblivious…

Review: Diving in Cambodia with Scuba Nation

Dive shops are a dime a dozen these days in coastal Sihanoukville, Cambodia (of course, the actual price is a lot more than that). The quality – and prices – seems to vary greatly depending on whom you go with, and a number of these companies specialize…

Height of stupidity: Phnom Penh's 'illegal' hotel opens soon

Work is almost finished on a four-star hotel near the Royal Palace deemed so offensive – and so illegal – that Phnom Penh authorities demanded it be torn down. The order, given almost a year ago in October 2013, has unsurprisingly gone ignored. Now, the…

Seeing Koh Kong's mangrove forests and waterfall by bicycle

Koh Kong, just ten kilometers from the Thai-Cambodia border, is something of a pitstop to travelers heading east to Sihanoukville or west to the Thai island of Koh Kong. It's less known as an actual tourist destination, but it's a nice waterfront town…

Frugal five-day itinerary in Seoul, South Korea.

South Korea is off the typical backpacker trail for one big reason: it's too expensive compared to all the other countries in the region (barring Japan). According to governments statistics, only 12 percent of tourists hail from the Americas or Europe,…
