Ruby Edwards' trip around Asia!

Friday 26 May 2017 15:31

Inadvertently, Gili Air is my final stop. The trip has been amazing and ending it in paradise is perfect. Now I just can't wait to get home!

Gili Trawangan (1st of 3 islands) is so beautiful! It has gorgeous beaches, a turtle sanctuary, lots of bars, restaurants and nice hostels. We have met up with Kea, Freya, Jika and Tish and Nordie Ollie and Tom will be here tomorrow! So pals all round.

Ubud - we went to a monkey sanctuary and for a swim in a waterfall today, and have done lots of shopping and eating yummy food.

First stop in Bali - Canggu! Seems really cool and backpacker-y, lots of little shops and cafes and of course beaches! I am so excited to be by the sea again and to RELAX

Slightly belated, but here I am in Hanoi! The capital is just like its southern counterpart (Ho Chi Minh) in terms of general feel, but we have had a lovely first couple of days including visiting Ha Long Bay. Our last stop in mainland south-east Asia

Hoi An! Of course our first stop was to a famous tailors to get measured, pick fabrics and get clothes made! I got a leather bag, a skirt, a playsuit and some culottes!

STOPOVER - only time for a quick dinner and wander in Nha Trang (lovely beach from which you can see mountainous islands on the horizon) and then we hop on an overnight bus to Hoi An. Nha Trang is FULL of Russians, and all the signs / menus are in Russian too. Strange.

Da Lat is SO NICE because it is a cool 20 ish degrees which feels heavenly!!! It looks like an Alpine town but still feels very Vietnamese.

Mui Ne ! A nice beach town - in a lovely backpackers hostel with a nice pool and lots of friendly people. Here we will swim in the sea, see giant sand dunes at sunrise and go to a 'fairy waterfall'. Yay!

First stop in Vietnam! Everything here is bustling and beautiful, the food is delicious and the people are friendly. Ho Chi Minh is a very cool place.

Phnom Penh! We got to the capital of Cambodia on a tiny cramped minibus ($5 so dunno what we were expecting) and as soon as we arrived the heavens really opened - we're nearing the start of the rainy season - and thankfully our hostel is clean and cool and the dorm is lovely. The city isn't the nicest so we're going to do the basic touristy bits but also chill by the pool at the hostel if the weather improves, and possibly go and see a movie for only $3.50, and basically just chill. Next stop Vietnam!!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

From Sihanoukville to Kampot! Have coincidentally met up with some people from Brighton and had a lovely first evening with them - tomorrow we go on a countryside day trip to Kep, a cave temple, a pepper farm (Kampot pepper is famous!) and a sunset river cruise in the evening.

From Siem Reap I am now in Otres village, Sihanoukville - sleepy, beachy, restful and friendly! A lovely antidote to the busy cities I've experienced over the past few days.

Tuesday 18 Apr 2017 20:36

After a brief stop in Bangkok (which i forgot to post!) after Koh Phangan, I have arrived in Cambodia, country #3 of my travels! Here in Siem Reap I will see Angkor Wat, one of the eight wonders of the world!

Friday 14 Apr 2017 18:12

Down from Bangkok to Khao Sok National Park (but no electricity there so couldn't mark waypoint!) and then from there to here - Koh Phangan. A beautiful island, currently sitting on a secluded beach as the sun sets. Incredible.

Tuesday 11 Apr 2017 22:26

back down to bangkok ๐Ÿ™„ one night here and then down south to khao sok national park where there will be no wifi ! so next waypoint will be Koh Phangan ๐ŸŒž

hello Pai! Definitely the coolest place we've visited so far, full of cute stalls, restaurants, bars, other backpackers, and our hostel is really lovely. My friends and I have lucked out and have two adjoining rooms so the four of us are all together!

First day in Chiang Mai!

Wednesday 29 Mar 2017 16:34

next stop is Kanchanaburi. We got here by private minibus after stopping at a floating market where they take you round on these narrow boats and pull up next to stalls. I had a DELICIOUS first thai meal - chicken rice stir fry but it was AMAZING. We also went to the river kwai (and the bridge!) on a motored long tail boat. It's all beautiful and magical and I'm so happy!

Tuesday 28 Mar 2017 13:23

First day in Bangkok ! After no sleep for 36 hours i'm pretty shattered and it has been a pretty teary start. Bangkok is full of shouts and smells of food and cars and scooters and is SO humid. It's overcast today so doesn't feel that hot but I was so sweaty walking literally around the corner. Now i've had a good cry (and once i've had a sleep!) I'll be ready for what lies ahead.
