Chungking Mansions Entrance

Hostel Review: Toms Guesthouse Chungking Mansions Hong Kong

Ta-da: the Chungking Mansions, Kowloon, Hong Kong. As far as I know, I haven’t stayed in any other place that is the subject of an Economist article, a wikipedia page, and a book. We stayed at the Chungking Mansions because we were trying to stick to budget ($150 per day: accommodation + food + entertainment Read the Rest…

Hong Kong with Kids in Kowloon

Hong Kong Markets

This is a map of the Hong Kong markets we visited on a Sunday wander. We hadn’t come to Hong Kong to shop but since a number of Hong Kong’s famous street markets were right on our doorstep in Kowloon – and because that kind of meandering day is our favorite way to explore a Read the Rest…

Saigon Vietnam Chu Chi Tunnels Vietnam With Kids

Chu Chi Tunnels Saigon Vietnam

BigB climbing into the Chu Chi Tunnels outside Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. These tunnels were a vital part of the Viet Cong’s strategy during the Vietnam War. And just about disappearing into the tunnel. Inside the tunnels showing how small these spaces are – even for a 10-year-old boy who stands at about Read the Rest…

Thailand-with-kids-bus-to-surat-thani

Gentleman Kid

This is what a crowded backpacker bus in Thailand looks like. Every seat filled with people standing and sitting all down the aisle. If you think that’s not safe, consider also that the backpacks belonging to the extra passengers were piled up behind the driver, blocking the entrance and there was no air-conditioning. Altogether not Read the Rest…

Goofing in Hanoi

The Hoan Kiem Lake is a peaceful spot in central Hanoi – a little less peaceful the day we visited. Kids.

Young Monks in Luang Prabang Laos

We walked along the river in peaceful Luang Prabang, the old capital of Laos. It was a peaceful amble, not even a stroll. There was a cool breeze coming off the river and the punters at the riverside cafes were quietly sipping their tea or afternoon cocktails. We turned a corner and above our heads, Read the Rest…

Crossing The Mekong From Thailand To Laos

In Chiang Khong, Thailand, open boats ply the broad, muddy, mighty Mekong all day ferrying people from Thailand to Laos and back again. When we arrived we were winging it with respect to knowing anything about the border crossing, passport control and even how much the boat across would cost. BigB got a little frustrated Read the Rest…

We miss you Bangkok

We’ve been snowbound in Seattle this week. There’s been snow, sleet, rain, a very unusual ice-storm and general weather mayhem. All of which led me to think about where we were a year ago: in a warmer, gentler Bangkok. Here’s BigB and I taking a moment out of a busy day sightseeing exploring the many Read the Rest…

Irkeshtam-Pass-China

Crossing Irkeshtam Pass from China to Kyrgyzstan

As we left Kashgar for Osh in Kyrgyzstan I expected a long but fairly uneventful travel day. The reality didn’t deviate too much from my expectations but even with that the experience couldn’t have been further from mundane. It started when the Chinese taxi driver dropped us at the China-side border post. The broad two-story Read the Rest…
