Singapore is expensive, really expensive. If you can only afford to visit one attraction, choose Gardens by the Bay. This futuristic garden is like a portal to another world.
Eating. It's the only essential tourist activity in Singapore. With so much to choose from, how do you decide what to eat? Here are 12 suggestions.
Singapore. A big and expensive city, or is there more than meets the eye? From curry to snakes to military parades, my time was anything but boring.
Hue, Vietnam. My visit was too short, action-packed: a train through high mountains, harassed by prostitutes at night, and a reminder of war's brutality.
Hoi An, a small fishing village in Central Vietnam. Is there any town in Asia as pretty as this one?
Saigon, or Ho Chi Minh City. It's a fantastic place, filled with amazing food, fascinating culture, and haunting history. There's really no place like it.
Cambodia's Killing Fields need no introduction. The horror has been captured in multiple books and films, but nothing compares to experiencing it with your own eyes.
Meditation with a Buddhist monk? It doesn't happen everyday. I was lucky enough to do it in Cambodia. But it didn't go all to plan.
Angkor Wat. It's a place of magic and wonder. I went with high hopes, but I was unprepared for what I'd actually find.
As a history lover, the Siem Reap War Museum was always going to interest me. What I did not anticipate was the heartbreaking story I would hear from one of the museum guides. I left shaken, but with a greater understanding of Cambodia's people.
