South-East Asia trip: Overview

On our trip to South-East Asia in autumn 2017 my husband and I visited three countries – Singapore, Cambodia and Thailand. We slept in five different beds, took seven flights, and walked uncountable distances while exploring numerous cities and temples. It was another great trip, full of amazing unforgettable memories.

  • I’ve visited 4 new countries: Cambodia, Serbia, Singapore & Thailand, stepping into 2018 with the total count of 30 visited countries
  • I swam in the Andaman sea for the first time

WHY SOUTH-EAST ASIA?

South-East Asia was on our radar for a while, but somehow it was never the right moment to travel there… Not until this year, when I found really good deal for the direct flights to Singapore. After a quick research on Singapore, we didn’t hesitate much before we’ve booked our flights there. Reasons?

  • Interesting architecture
  • Melting pot of cultures
  • Colonial history
  • Cleanliness

After our research, we knew two weeks in Singapore would be too much for our travel style, so we’ve started looking into other places in South-East Asia which we could also visit. Singapore is a travel hub with affordable connections to numerous destinations. It was hard decision, but after taking into consideration different factors, (like  weather conditions, transport connections, things to see, etc.), we’ve decided to travel to Siem Reap in Cambodia and Chiang Mai and Krabi in Thailand. Why?

Siem Reap, Cambodia:

  • Siem Reap temples
  • Cambodian history & culture
  • Affordability

Chiang Mai & Krabi, Thailand:

  • Elephants
  • Stunning beaches
  • Thai food
  • Temples
  • Thai history and culture
  • Limestone rocks formations
  • Adventurous activities
  • Affordability

As usual before departing to my trip, I would like to ask you my dear readers for some assistance. What are your favourite places in Singapore, Siem Reap, Chiang Mai and Krabi? What attractions are must see? Which market must we visit? Where do they serve the best food? What local delicacy we must try? Any suggestion would be highly appreciated!
