Ba Na hills was founded in 1919 by French Colonists as a station and attraction for French Visitors in Vietnam, with the cable car reaching to the top holding multiple Guinness World Records, one of which being that it is the longest non-stop single cable car in the world. It’s effectively a weird theme park on a hill, which you could view as either as an amazing feat of human construction or just utterly ridiculous…

Recently I’ve seen a lot of negativity from both bloggers and Instagrammers about the quirky destinat...

Whilst travelling through Cambodia, it’s quite necessary to acknowledge and try to educate ones self on the horrors that occurred here less than half a century ago under the rule of the Khmer Rouge, primarily from 1974-1979. Like all mass destructions of life, it is almost impossible to find the right words to describe how violent, bloody and painful this period of time was for the nation.

It is estimated that during this time, up to 10 million landmines were planted across Cambodia (although there is no way of knowi...

This is a weird personal one. 2019 will have been my first Christmas and New Year’s Eve away from home and it’s probably been the least sad experience ever. I always thought I’d be missing home or I’d miss my friends (I always do, that doesn’t change just for Christmas) or I’d miss the traditional festivities. In reality, I saved money, I didn't find myself focusing on people pleasing or having to act happy and the 'hype' was subdued and calm.

Christmas can be a really sad time of year for those experiencing dif...

As I try and draw conclusions from our first Thailand adventure, I wondered how helpful I could be in advice for a potential short-term trip; picking the best and worst and helping you make decisions on where to visit. Inspired by a conversation I had with two of my best girls back home regarding how high an IMDb (Internet Movie Database) rating has to be to even consider watching a film, I’d like to give Thailand’s West Coast my own personal ratings.

Just for reference, the girls and I would only watch a 7.2 or abov...

Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia; it’s home to many of Asias banking hubs and is an amalgamation of different cultures thanks to it’s geographical location. The beautiful skylines and food cannot be missed. Thankfully, a visit to Kuala Lumpur will not put a plaster on your damaged bank balance unlike its neighbour, Singapore and can even be explored on a smaller ‘backpacker budget.’ This post will hopefully give you some tips and tricks on how to keep in budget in one of the most expensive areas in Malay...

After 6 weeks of all consuming continuous island hopping through Indonesia, seeing amazing things such as The Nusa Islands and Komodo National Park, Java became a haven in which to take a step back from intense travelling and take some time to relax and enjoy surroundings without time restraints. Starting in Malang, we continued onto Yogyakarta, a bustling capital city within Java’s Special Region of Yogyakarta. Known for cultural heritage and the only royal city in Indonesia still ruled by a monarchy, Yogyakarta is...

Belonging to the Nusa trio, Nusa Penida is the largest, and most commonly visited of the three islands, southeast of Bali. It is home to the famous ‘T-Rex Head’ and is a popular destination for Instagram lovers, thanks to its beautiful cliff edges and beaches (which I have to admit, are pretty great).

When arriving from Bali, be aware of overpriced boats and do your research beforehand. You shouldn’t be paying any more than 150,000IDR (£8/9) from Sanur as the journey will only take half an hour or so. If arriving fro...

The Nusa Islands, consisting of Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan and most famously, Nusa Penida, have been a progressing tourist spot over the past few years for those visiting Bali. They are home to crystal clear waters, polished viewpoints and activities so dangerous, you might need to double check your insurance documents….

My time on the Nusa Islands latest five days, which was enough time to get all the hot spots done but equally for those desiring a more relaxing and casual trip, a longer stay would also fit. Thre...

Malang in East Java is known for being a layover between volcano hikes and further journeys into Central Java. Unfortunately, the multitude of writing I read before visiting Malang had an array of attractions that weren’t within distance of most of the accommodations and required hiring a driver for a day. After doing our own exploring, I’ve put together a list of a few local spots that are within walking distance (or a short moped ride) and easy on the wallet to help you enjoy Malang to its fullest :)

Take yourself away from Bali and head East to find an entirely new adventure filled with unworldly experiences; an adventure you could only dream of.

Situated between West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara, Komodo National Park is made up of three main islands – Komodo Island, Rinca and Padar, plus twenty-six smaller islands.  It is home to the only natural habitat of the Komodo Dragon and it holds (alongside Indonesia) thirty percent of the planets thriving coral reefs.

Komodo National Park is home to beautiful hi...
