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

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

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. Instead, think (and watch) lush jungles, religious ceremonies and majestic vistas that make this island truly The Island of the Gods. [The Island of the Gods (Bali)/Vimeo]

Attempting To Understand What It Meant [Travel Video]

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

Last November we posted a great video of Ha Long Bay made by a member of our Vimeo travel video group named simply “Asintrip TV.” The makers of the video followed up with me last week to let me know they wrapped up their trip from Southeast Asia and made a “best-of” video attempting to encapsulate […]

How To Cross The Street In Vietnam

Friday, September 28, 2012

It sounds like the beginning of a joke: How do you cross the street in Vietnam? (Possible punchlines: “You don’t,” “You start by taking out a life insurance policy,” or “You buy a motorbike.”) As any visitor who has been to Vietnam knows, the quickest way to spot the newbie traveler in town is to […]

The Easiest Way To Get A Myanmar Visa

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

With considerable political reforms occurring over the last year, Myanmar (Burma), once a pariah state in the world of travel, has become this year’s hottest backpacker destination. Although some significant human rights issues remain, travelers are keen to experience the legendary, relatively “untouched” culture of this unique Southeast Asian country, hot on the heels of several Western […]

Bad News Sweden: Phuket Is Full

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Bad news Sweden: Phuket is full. Well, not full exactly, but the Thai island (and its smaller nearby cousins, known for their white sand beaches and DEET-laced alcoholic cocktails) is on path for another record-setting year, with an estimated 4.7 million visitors expected to visit the island in 2012, up from 4.2 million in 2011. Quite […]

Some Ideas After You’re Done With Halong Bay

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Chances are your visit to Halong bay will likely involve an armada of small boats jammed with backpackers and local tourists navigating the waterways between the limestone outcrops that make up Vietnam’s most recognizable landmark. But if you’re interested in seeing some other just as interesting but less crowded sites, Lonely Planet has a few […]

Get To Burma By 2013 Or Don’t Bother Going At All?

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

There is a predictable pattern for the emergence of new travel hot spots around the world. First, that country must be mired in civil war or be under the thumb of an oppressive dictatorship that frowns upon outsiders entering their country (which has the perverse effect of staving off over-development and preserving culture at the […]

Koh Rong: Get There Quick Before . . .

Friday, May 11, 2012

Unspoiled, turquoise-green, powder-white beaches, inexpensive . . . You’ve heard these adjectives before when describing beaches in Southeast Asia, right? However, they’re usually followed up with such words as: full-moon party, MDMA, overcrowded, touristy. Thus is the result of decades-worth of word-of-mouth recommendations for islands such as Koh Phangan, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Samui, and […]

Don’t Let Anyone Tell You Otherwise: The Lunch Lady Of Saigon Serves Meals To Die For

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

It’s rare that I will dig into a bowl of watery, bland soup here in the U.S. and I don’t harken back to happier times. Specifically, a certain afternoon in the bowels of Saigon sitting on a small, plastic chair chowing down on a freshly poured bowl of soup full of thick slices of meat, […]
