Relief from the Heat in Cameron Highlands

Penang was hot and humid. As I was sitting in the van on my way south to the Cameron Highlands I was looking forward to the much cooler temperatures I anticipated at 5000 ft in elevation. At the same time I was reflecting on how different the country of Malaysia is from the other countries […]

Tonsai: Hidden Gem of Krabi Peninsula

The Krabi Peninsula is no secret. It is another picturesque location on Thailands Andaman Coast. It is also quick and easy to get to from Phuket which is where many package tourists fly into and spend much of their time.

Koh Ta Kiev, Cambodia: Beach Camping at its Finest

Despite the challenges of getting there all of the Cambodian islands are well worth a visit. This is not Thailand so transportation can be a little unreliable to put it politely, but that is part of the charm of an island like Koh Ta Kiev. Unlike many of Thailands’ popular, over touristed islands, you can’t […]
