From the moment I first set foot on the amazing Khmer’s land, I had a strong feeling of warmth and the people welcomed me with friendliness and genuine smiles. I landed in Siem Reap International Airport after a short 1 hour flight from Bangkok.
The street food is everyday life for both Vietnamese and visitors alike. People eat anywhere at anytime! It’s like a veritable gastronomic carnival.
The core of the nightlife scene is the area covering the the streets of Pham Ngu Lao, De Tham and Bui Vien – the tourist quarter in Saigon. In this area, you can find dozens of small and big bars and pubs, plenty of street food and many “other things”, all at relatively cheap prices.
I started with my very first visit to Asia in one of the craziest cities in the world, Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon), Vietnam, on January 1st after spending the New Year’s Eve in Doha Airport. It was early afternoon when I landed, but on my Eastern European time it could still say “Good Morning”.
During my time in Romania, I learned more about the country that I had expected. It was the first time where I learned in person, talking to people and seeing the sights without consulting any books which I think is quite a special way to discover new things.
