The Travel Diaries: Siem Reap, Cambodia

Another new country!! I was in two minds about what to expect of Cambodia. On one hand, I had friends telling me how much they’d loved it when they’d been and that it had been their favourite, with some extending their stay. On the other hand, I’d seen programmes not showing it in its bestContinue Reading “The Travel Diaries: Siem Reap, Cambodia”

The Travel Diaries: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur! I was so excited to be in a big city again. It had already gone dark by the time we arrived, and I felt like a kid at Christmas staring out the window at all the big city lights.

The Travel Diaries: Koh Phangan, Thailand

As part of our island hopping off the east coast, we next travelled to Koh Phangan. Koh Phangan is close to Koh Samui, and we were lucky to get the 1.30pm express boat and arrive by 2pm! We were staying at a place called The Friendly Resort & Spa which cost us £24 for twoContinue Reading “The Travel Diaries: Koh Phangan, Thailand”
