Can’t lie – we were a little disappointed by Bangkok. But the city redeemed itself in the one way that mattered to us: It’s art scene. Here are our two favourite spots in Bangkok that you absolutely can’t miss:

A Day Of Doing Nothing | Bangkok | SE Asia #020

We’ve been traveling for nearly four weeks now and we still have just under three weeks until it’s all over. We’ve realized that sometimes you have to do nothing.

We Have A Phobia Of Missing Cambodia | SE Asia #018

It was a short six days but a memorable six days. We regret not doing more research beforehand about what a great country Cambodia is.

The Arduous Journey From Vietnam to Cambodia | In Transit | SE Asia #014

We are what we refer to as ‘bouj-et’ travellers, where budget meets boujee. There are things we like to splurge on (like speakeasies or theatre tickets), but in order to do that, we have to save in other areas. And that is why we ended up spending fourteen hours trying to cross the Vietnam-Cambodia border.

Goodnight, Vietnam | SE Asia #013

We travelled from Hanoi to Ha Long Bay to Hoi An, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City, and Can Tho and now the time has come to say goodbye to Vietnam (for now.) But to remember our time here, we’ve reflected on the ups and downs of the last 15 days.
