As soon as we bought the airline ticket, our journey through Southeast Asia began.
Maps, references, tips, concerns and a lot of excitement! Because we know it’s a huge trip that awaits us.
We had two options for traveling to Southeast Asia:
The best thing is that whether you’re organizing your trip on the fly, or as you go, you will enjoy the benefits of being part of Hello Territory and can always count on the best prices.
WOW! It’s amazing how many tuk-tuks there are and how they drive! It’s part of Thailand’s charm. You might spend most of your time in this destination and you don’t have to worry because it’s a cheap and safe place. From the modernism of its capital, Bangkok, where you can visit the Royal Palace, Wat Pho Temple and Wat Arun Temple, to the well-known Khao San Road where you can try fried insects. Then take the train to the amazing and culturally significant city of Chiang Mai, “The Rose of the North”. Here, in the middle of nature, you will be able to bathe and feed elephants, see tigers, visit temples and meet giraffe women. You really must visit the Island of Phuket and Phang-Nga Bay, and above all, take a trip in a “longtail” boat.
The kingdom of the gods in Angkor Wat, in the city of Siem Reap, is Cambodia’s main attraction. You are sure to be amazed by the landscape of its rice fields. Year after year, the charm of its beaches, the authenticity of the city of “Phnom Penh” and its people attract travelers looking for incredible experiences.
When we hear people talk about Vietnam, the first thing we think of are the people wearing the “non la” (Vietnamese hat), but Vietnam is a thousand times more than that. After visiting the colorful city of Hoi An and trying a delicious and authentic Vietnamese dish, the first stop is the impressive Halong Bay, “where the dragon descends into the sea,” and taking a trip in a traditional Vietnamese boat made of reeds. Spending time in the cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh is sure to be a unique experience.
While it is not mentioned as often as the rest, it is just as spectacular. Laos dazzles with natural charm and its many monasteries in Vientiane. The Mekong River, which it shares with Thailand, is lined with picturesque villages. Here you must visit the Pha That Luang, Wat Pha Kaew and Phra Keo Temples.
And finally there is Myanmar, formerly Burma. That image some of us have on our computer desktop of pagodas and hot-air balloons is the beautiful Bagán, the city of a thousand pagodas. You’ll want to sit for a while and take in this real-life landscape. The reclining Buddha in the Chaukhtatgyi Pagoda will also astound you. Last but not least, visits to the floating market, the city of Mandalay and the idyllic Inle Lake will make your jaw drop.
We’re sure that looking at these incredible photos will make you want to take some of your own, discover this incredible world and write your own story.
Traveling makes you feel alive and gives you that feeling of butterflies in your stomach.
When traveling, we experience new things, we marvel at new places and we learn about new
