Chiang Mai Travel Tips

Travel

If you’re headed to North Thailand you probably have three destinations in mind: Chiang Mai, Pai and Chiang Rai. Unfortunately a tight schedule meant I could only visit Chiang Mai, but I can’t imagine the other two being greatly different to be honest.

Hanoi Travel Tips

Travel

Vietnam was pretty much exactly like Top Gear made it out to be. Before visiting, many people told me Hanoi was a quiet city and Saigon was chaos. People said Vietnam becomes calmer and friendlier the further north you go.

Da Nang, Hội An & Huế Travel Tips

Travel

This leg of the Vietnam trip was meant to start in Hoi An, but unfortunate timing in a lot of places meant a brief stay in Da Nang was the only affordable option before heading down to Hoi An… then back up through Da Nang to Hue.

Ho Chi Minh City Travel Tips

Travel

Saigon is a city with more to offer than bars and restaurants like most cities, which makes it a great stop to begin or end your Vietnam journey with. The city has recovered well since the war, but still offers plenty to see if you’re there to learn more or experience some history of the country’s struggles during that time.

Uluwatu Travel Tips

Travel

For some reason Uluwatu felt like a little bit more effort and a greater commitment than visiting anywhere else in Bali, possibly because it’s down south in the Bukit, which means there’s less to continue onto afterwards. If your plan is to find some excellent surf spots and Bali’s best beaches, it’s totally worth the trip.

Ubud Travel Tips

Travel

Beyond the “Eat, Pray, Love” experiences being sold by every travel agent in Bali, Ubud has a lot to see and do to make you feel like you’re back on track exploring after you probably spent longer-than-needed in Kuta. There are still some attractions worth skipping, but most experiences in Ubud are rather unique and enjoyable.

Kuta, Seminyak & Canggu Travel Tips

Travel

I’m lumping Seminyak and Canggu in with Kuta because despite their differences, they’re relatively small and very close to Kuta. Chances are, Kuta is the first place you’ll head once landing in Bali so I suggest making your way north through all three before continuing on to Ubud. I see these three as the same place due to their location, but they’re very different (well Canggu is at least).

Essaouira Travel Tips

Travel

Essaouira has grown on me. My first visit was one of confusion and my lack of preparation left me wondering why I was there. It felt like a small, windy and boring Marrakech, but it’s actually so much more.

Marrakech Travel Tips

Travel

A city that can exhaust, frustrate and disgust you, but leave you wanting more – Marrakech was my first venture outside of Europe and I had a whale of a time with no real plan or idea what on earth I was doing. I have visited since and must say this city changes INCREDIBLY quickly, so take my pointers as advice rather than fact and explore for yourself!

Köln Travel Tips

Travel

When Megabus started offering £20 trips to Europe I hopped aboard an overnight shuttle to Cologne to explore what was billed as a beautiful student city. Unfortunately I went during a week of torrential downpour and had a bit of a naff time, but I’ll try again one day as there were some incredible sights in this old-styled city.

Amsterdam Travel Tips

Travel

One of my favourite cities in the world, my first non-holiday travel and one I will keep repeating for the rest of my life. A city with endless beauty to marvel at and action at every corner, yet the most relaxing and homely city I’ve ever visited. Every building is a work of art, every street welcomes you with open arms and there’s never a sense of boredom when mindlessly strolling through the canal-constricted cobbled streets of Amsterdam.
