One night left in Bangkok and I pick a hotel that might as well be its own city. If you are looking for some luxury or simply don’t want to have to leave your hotel, Asia hotel is the one for you.
Hiking is not my strong point. As of late with my myriad of physical issues it can prove to be quite difficult. However I always want to do it. Even if it is not in my best interest. I have wised up. Starting bringing better sneakers ( sorry converse) and pacing myself.
My introduction to Cambodia was passing through a dusty border patrol. With my bag on my back and the sun beating down I walked into the very small old office to get my passport stamped. With barely a look they stamped me and I headed back out into the humidity to find my bus.
Hanoi is hectic. It is loud and congested. Through out the day traffic is crazy, everyone is out on the streets selling, buying or hustling and you can here the buzz from the phone wires about your head all day long. Why is this a reason to love Hanoi? The city just seems so alive….
On my second day in Hanoi I had signed up for a street food tour with the appropriately named Hanoi Street Food Tours.It turned out to be the best thing I did in Hanoi.
Sadly my venture into Vietnam was merely an exit for my trip to Cambodia. I spent just a few days crossing into the country and heading into Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).
As an American it is hard to imagine that there are people who live without things like the internet, cable or electricity. However all over the world there are people who have none of these things.
