A Sunday Afternoon Stroll Through Hell

When your Thai landlord offers to take you to lunch on a Sunday afternoon, you don’t expect to end up in Hell. I had envisioned a casual afternoon of eating spicy papaya salad and having comical conversations through broken English and basic Thai with Khunjai. She is an older, rotund […]

And You Thought Myanmar Couldn’t Get Much Better Looking [Video]

This stunner featuring Myanmar (Burma) comes to us from Singaporean student Kevin Ng Jia Quan, who trekked to the Southeast Asian country with his Canon 5D Mark III (and 24-105mm lens) in tow, along with his Glidecam HD2000 for all those pretty Steadicam-like shots.

The Spice Of Balinese Life: Notes From A Cooking Class In Ubud, Bali

I am seated upon a bamboo mat on the ground, notebook in hand and appetite in tow. We have just returned to our lovely host home after an early-morning market excursion to purchase the necessities for our cooking lesson.

Is It Possible To Actually Enjoy Bali? (Here’s How)

Full disclosure: I’ve never been to Bali. It’s not that I haven’t been in the general vicinity, or have had the chance to go there over other destinations that are roughly the same distance from New York, but I’ve got to admit, it’s quickly become one of the few places […]

A Lesson In Laid-Back Travel On Cambodia’s Mekong Discovery Trail

I’m a great planner — an aspect of my personality so ingrained that it rarely faded during 10 months on the road. Even removed as I was from the rigours of Western life, away from the myriad rules and regulations that simply don’t apply in other parts of the world, […]

Bali: The Island You Thought You Knew [Travel Video]

Forget the yoga retreats, luxury spas, poolside Jamu massages, and the recently-divorced-women-of-a-certain-age that have all unfortunately come to symbolize the Bali of today.
