|Travels in the East|
by Ben (30 locations)
Brighton - Burlesque circus freak show
The bearded ladies and can-can girls of Brighton joined together to wish bon voyage to myself and Wendy.
Hong Kong 1 - Em guy si
We arrive, brains numbed and body disorientated, in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong 2 - Fortune's told
I should keep my mouth shut, apparently.
It's a bit like Hong Kong but more Portugeezer.
Bangkok 1 - Where are all the ladyboys?
All those things you heard about sex tourism are true
Kanchanaburi and Bangkok 2
The King and I
Happy New Year
10 minutes in Burma
High in the moutains
The Mekong River
Bye bye Thailand. Bonjour Laos.
Black coffee, no streetlights and one very randy Lao man.
A place to watch Friends, be happy and tube down a river.
Probably the quietest capital city in the world
The Paris of the Extreme Orient.
Craggy rocks, junk boats and rude stalagtites.
Hue and the Demilitarized Zone
Ancient royal palace destroyed by the Americans and lots of American tanks destroyed by the Commies.
4 ties, 2 shirts, 2 pairs of shoes, 1 suit, 1 jacket and a hat.
Booze, boats and brits. The Vietnamese Ibiza
The Paris of the East, they say. We beg to differ.
Dalat to Saigon
200 miles, 2 days, one bike.
Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon
A city so nice they named it twice
Latte on the promenade and genocide
As close as Cambodia gets to having a Costa
Where we became English teachers
Bokor Hill Station
Welcome to the only hotel and casino complex with minus five stars.
Siem Reap and the Temples of Angkor
World class temples and beggars galore.
The road to the border
Not as smooth as silk
Back to Bangkok
Our third visit so far to a city of humidity, neon lights, traffic congestion and potential coups.
Dive mecca and island paradise. Even with the requisite branch of 7-11.
Amusing Thai signs
Before we leave Thailand a small collection of signs somewhat lost in translation.
