Thailand is a vast and beautiful country with the North and South being home to completely different experiences. In the north you can find quaint (yet popular) towns among the jungled hills whereas down south you'll find yourself partying non-stop on the many infamous Thai Islands, where Full Moon Party's are plentiful and insane.
-Home to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Pai, Krabi, Phuket, etc.
-Home to the worlds largest gold Buddha.
-Tiger Woods is part Thai...sort of cool, right?
- Laos has been dubbed the "Most Bombed Country" in the world - a title we hope they overcome for a new one.
- The people of Laos are known around the world for being so honest and living such a minimalistic lifestyle - our kind of people.
- It only just became free of French rule in 1949, which is why French Colonial architecture is so prevalent here!
Be sure and pronounce this correctly (the "s" is silent guys). The people in Laos are nothing but friendly, welcoming and kind - living such a peaceful and simple lifestyle with no obvious need for abundance. Something that should be discussed far more around the world, is the incredible jungles, forests, rivers and natural beauty found here. It truly is something to marvel at.
- There are an estimated 4 million land mines still waiting to be cleared - tread carefully!
- Cambodia is home to the famously beautiful Angkor Wat.
- Around 2 million people were killed during the Khmer Rouge's rule. That was about 1/5 of the population...
Ever wanted to feel like a character from Tomb Raider or Indiana Jones? Cambodia, originally known as Khmer, is the place for you. Here there is no shortage of old-world villages to visit along the Mekong or temples to watch the sun rise and fall. From the famous Angkor Wat to the lesser-known beaches in the south, we’re counting down the days till our exploration of this country on the rise.
From Ha Long Bay & Sapa in the north, to Ho Chi Minh City & Da Lat in the south, we could easily spend our entire trip here and still not feel like we've seen it all. Located on the South China Sea, Vietnam is well known for it's many rivers, beaches, Buddhist shrines, and a very different weather forecast from the rest of Southeast Asia. The range of things to do here are as vast as Thailand, yet somehow more uniquely satisfying.
-The currency in Vietnam is called the Dong...
-92 million people call Vietnam home. We plan to befriend a good majority
-America and Vietnam haven't always been on the best of terms...but they introduced us to Pho and we are forever grateful.
