Laos is a unique country, which has been quietly welcoming tourists for decades now. Luang Prabang was my first stop in the laid-back country of Laos, as arrived after my almost a month-long trip in Vietnam. I arrived from Hanoi to Luang Prabang by flight, and although the journey was just over an hour, the flight price was very expensive compared to flying in other parts of SE Asia. Here is the list of things…

Thimphu was the most surprising city in my entire trip to Bhutan. Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan is unlike the other capitals of the world, at least the ones that I have visited so far.

Bumthang, located in the eastern regions of Bhutan felt like a world away when I first arrived there on an evening, passing through many secluded villages, green fields, enchanting valleys and smiling people. If you feel that Bhutan is quiet and feels like you have traveled back in time, wait until you visit Bumthang. Blessed with nature’s abundance, Bumthang Valley allures its visitors with its enigma, shy and warm people. At least it did to…

I had been to Pattaya during my trip to Thailand before and had checked off the things to do in Pattaya, but this time, it was a different experience with TAT Mumbai. I was surprised to find out so many places to visit in Pattaya that make it a perfect holiday getaway for families. I discovered the things to do in Pattaya with family, especially with kids in the age group of 5 to 14.…

Vietnam is one of the most popular countries in SE Asia visited by the backpackers across the world, but it still isn’t the country that people go visiting back like its neighbor Thailand, which converts many of its visitors to permanent fans that end up going there back and forth. While Vietnam clicks with most people, it’s a shame that still many aren’t aware how gorgeous this country is! Maybe they didn’t know a few things…

What to do in Ho Chi Minh? Or Saigon, as the place is popularly known?

During my Vietnam trip, there were storms one after the other, with floods hitting north-central regions of Vietnam. I was in the south, luckily having started my trip in Ho Chi Minh. I waited with prayers for the weather to clear. Because Hoi An was the town that I didn’t want to miss traveling at all. I got lucky and I did travel to Hoi An, and ended up staying for more than a week! So…

I was lucky on my trip to Vietnam, for I had escaped heavy storms, rain and floods on my journey from the south to North Vietnam. After spending a week in Hoi An, I headed to Phong Nha (Son Trach), the town in north-central Vietnam known for the Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park, home to the best caves of Vietnam. My luck streak ended here, as I could do nothing because the heavy downpour that continued…

I started my journey in Vietnam from the south, and my plan was to follow a trail that I had let out all the way to the capital Hanoi. Saigon was my first stop. I got Vietanamised after spending a week in the city, where I got a peek at what the country was. It was time to move on, and I chose Mui Ne, which wasn’t something that I had thought of exploring, as…

I smiled listening to her exasperated rant about the drive, as our laggard driver rode the bus on a road that was similar to her mood. Even a seasoned traveler can be put off…
