Another Phuket? This One In The Philippines

Is it me or does it seem like every time a new tiki bar or hotel opens up on a Southeast Asian island, the inevitable, “The next Phuket” tag seems to creep in? Which begs the question: how many Phukets can there be, and do we really need or want […]

Exploring Cambodia And Vietnam Through The Eyes Of “La Marguerite”

Most cruise lines seek to provide its customers with what I call the “Best Of” trip (e.g., “See the Best of the Mediterranean: From Scenic Livorno to the Seascapes of San Tropez”). While this is probably a very lovely way to sail and explore, I often want to experience all […]

It’s lunchtime, it’s Friday, and I know what you’re craving to eat: fish balls.

Where To Avoid The Tourists In Vietnam

This week the NYT headed off-the-beaten-path in Vietnam in search of a little respite from the hustle and bustle that is the rest of the country, and where they found it may be a little surprising: Con Dao — the infamous island chain known more for their prisons than for […]

Taming The Brutal Kimodo Dragon . . . Sort Of

Real adventures, I mean the utterly real, still exist. You may have to look quite hard for them, but they’re still out there. The Telegraph recently recounted a trip into the lair of the fire-breathing, man-eating lizard, the Kimodo Dragon. At first glance, I thought this was one of those real kind of adventures. […]

Borneo: See Unforgettable Wildlife, Almost Get Bitten By A Deadly Snake, All In One Day

It’s probably fair to say that Bako National Park, in Borneo, is the only national park in the world where you are likely to run into hairy-nosed otters, flying lemurs, silver-leaf monkeys, honey bears, and green pit vipers (whose poisonous bite will kill you within a matter of hours), all […]

Bangkok Tips For The First-Timer

Oh, Bangkok. What will we ever do with you? Some love it, some hate it, some have both feelings towards it — often at the same time.
