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

Vung Tau - Vietnam

Vung Tau is a beach city about 1.45 hours drive from Ho Chi Minh City (depending on how crazy your driver is). I was warned in advance to not expect much of the beach, so my expectations were suitably met. The city itself is much nicer than I thought it would be and it’s a […]

Iboih Beach, Pulau Weh – Indonesia

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). I found some basic beach bungalows here that rent for around $10 a night. Most people come here for the diving, but also suitable for going off the grid. Travel Photos: […]

Shore Temple, Mamallapuram – India

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 […]

Notes on Pangandaran, Indonesia – An alternative beach destination to Bali

Pangandaran, Indonesia

[Pangandaran Beach, Java - Indonesia] Up until a few days before I arrived I had never heard of Pangandaran. This fishing village on the south coast of West Java is a popular beach resort (if you can describe it as that) for domestic visitors, but like much of Indonesia beyond Bali, it is not on […]

[Travel Photo] Nha Trang – Vietnam

Nha Trang Beach

After a month of living in Ho Chi Minh City I decided to get out of town for the new years. Nha Trang is about eight hours away by train and ten hours by bus. While it isn’t the greatest beach in SE Asia I like that it’s a city with a beach attached. Travel […]

Otres Beach Sunset #nofilter, Sihanoukville – Cambodia

Otres Beach Sunset

Sihanoukville is a popular backpacker beach town in Cambodia. Just south of the busy main beaches there is a small headland that cuts the beach off, and behind that is Otres Beach. There is not much going here, which was just what I was looking for in a beach break. On my last night there […]
