Angkor Temples

The main reason I wanted to go to Siem Reap and Cambodia was to see Angkor Wat. Or so I thought. It actually turned out I thought Angkor Wat was a combination of two temples, Angkor Wat and Ta Prohm. On Thursday I had a 4.10 am wake up call and was picked up by…

Phare the Cambodian Circus 

I’m now in Siem Reap, Cambodia and my good friend Annika told me: Don’t miss Phare the Cambodian Circus when there. Well, I did as told and yesterday I visited the circus and it is sure worth visiting. If you are ever in Siem Reap I highly recommend you to visit it. Phare the Cambodian…

Siem Reap 

Now in Siem Reap, Cambodia for three days. As it turned out too short stop. Three to four days in Siem Reap is probably enough but I get the feeling I would just love travelling around Cambodia. Mainly for one reason and that’s the people. Everyone I’ve met and talked to are so friendly. I…

Ha Long Bay

Ha Long Bay is listed on the Unesco World Heritage list and if in Vietnam it is worth a visit. However, as in my previous post you might want to lower your expectations on the tour or see to it that you arrange something different. It is possible to see Ha Long Bay from the…

Ha Long Bay Tour Arrangements

I was recommended to visit Ha Long Bay while in the northern parts of Vietnam so I booked a three days – two nights tour through the hotel. In this piece I’ll just write about the tour itself and I’ll write another piece with pictures about what I saw. Also, will not have the energy…

Hanoi on foot

Walking around in Hanoi. Below some pictures. En promenad runt i Hanoi. Nedan några bilder. Quan Thanh Temple  Tran Quoc Pagoda  Street Life Great way to cut costs. No costs for the saloon, waiting room already furnished and a natural breeze instead of a hair dryer. I will suggest this to my hair dresser and hope…

First night in Hanoi

As I didn’t have that much cash, I had to watch my spendings so for first meal out in Hanoi I went to a local “restaurant”. Not sure you can actually call it a restaurant but it was a hole in the wall with some tables and chairs and only locals. No one spoke English…

Okonomiyaki 

When I was in Osaka I tried a local speciality, Okonomiyaki at Mizuno. Very popular place judging by the line outside.  När jag var i Osaka så testade jag en lokal specialitet, Okonomiyaki på Mizuno. Väldigt populärt ställe av kön att döma. Positive thing by travelling alone is that it’s always easier to get a…

One day in Taipei 

I had one day and two nights in a rainy Taipei. The first night I spent on the phone with the banks and credit card companies. On Monday however I went out in a rainy Taipei and since I’d forgotten my Wellington Boots, my flip flops had to do. Below a few pictures from Taipei….

Challanges

I suppose it would be too good to be true to not encounter any challenges on this journey. On Monday when I was at Osaka airport waiting for the flight to Taipei I thought I’d use the time to book another flight. As a security precaution my bank always sends me a code via text…
