Long Beach, Phu Quoc – Vietnam

Long Beach, Phu Quoc - Vietnam

Long Beach is the most popular beach on the island of Phu Quoc. There are technically better beaches on the island with softer sand and clearer water, this beach ticks the boxes for a tropical beach holiday. Travel Photos: Phu Quoc photo gallery

My Khe Beach, Da Dang – Vietnam

My Khe Beach, Da Dang - Vietnam

I visited Da Nang for a weekend break from Saigon via a cheap flight from VietJet Air. Living in the tropical south I forget that in central and northern Vietnam they have seasons where it gets cold. I arrived in Da Nang on a cold (by my reckoning) and drizzly day. Despite that I still […]

Hand of Punta del Este, Uruguay

Hand of Punta del Este, Uruguay

The Hand of Punta del Este (Mano de Punta del Este) is a sculpture at Brava Beach in Punta del Este, Uruguay. The hand (by Chilean artist Mario Irarrázabal) has become the landmark image of Punta del Este, and I’ve even seen it as the representative icon of Uruguay in some tourist brochures. Punta del […]

Fishing boats, Ham Tien Beach [Mui Ne] – Vietnam

Fishing Boats - Mui Ne

Mui Ne is a beach resort town in Southern Vietnam. When people refer to Mui Ne they usually mean the long stretch of beach that runs between Mui Ne and Phan Thiet; the town itself is a fishing port with only a few places to stay. I stayed on the beach at Ham Tien, which […]

Hon Ba Island, Vung Tau – Vietnam

Iboih Beach, Pulau Weh – Indonesia

Pulau Weh (Weh Island) is off the northern tip of Sumatra and is the most northerly point in Indonesia (kilometre zero is marked here).

Mamallapuram - India

[Shore Temple, Mamallapuram – India] The Shore Temple is – as the name would suggest – a temple on the shore of the Bay of Bengal in Mamallapuram (or Mahabalipuram). The temple is one of a number of UNESCO World Heritage Site in the city which can visited on the one ticket. While it’s worth […]

Panwa Beach, Phuket – Thailand

Panwa Beach

When people say they don’t like Phuket they usually mean they don’t like Patong Beach and all the night clubs and girlie bars that goes with it. Well I presume they mean Patong as that is just one rawdy beach town on an island that is 48 km long (and the largest in Thailand). I […]
