Top Places To Visit 150 Spots
One cannot but picture Vietnam without the conical hat wearing farmers. You will see candy making, coconut coir art, coconut sweets being dished out at Mekong islands. We were taken to a restaurant that served a plethora of Vietnamese cuisine and meat. Actually live animals like crocodiles, turtles, snakes and of course the less exotic ones like crabs, fish etc. were among the picks. Being vegetarians, and having experienced the tough time we had in Maya Bay, Phuket, we were better prepared, this time. The cold Biryani that was cooked at the hotel seemed like heaven to us J.Locals use narrow boats to hop islands and the skilled boatwomen row you through packed traffic effortlessly!After some hammock perching and cycling, it was time to board the big boat back for the 2 hour ride back to HCMC.
Ko Phi Phi Leh Ao Nang Krabi Thailand
On my first day in Thailand, I decided to visit the Chatuchak Weekend Market. I did a little shopping at the market and finally bought a few gifts. After spending sometime in Krabi, I headed to the Phi Phi Islands. We headed out for the hour-long ride to the Phi Phi Islands and it was a stunningly beautiful ride. Small islands of limestone cliffs dot the Andaman Sea everywhere you look. Ko Phi Phi is made up of two islands, Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. Entering the Maya Bay on Phi Phi Leh was like entering another world. The soaring limestone cliffs, turquoise waters and stunning little coves of sandy beach are enough to make you think you’ve died and gone to heaven. It is quite possibly the most beautiful place I have EVER seen. I spent about an hour and a half snorkeling and marveling at the views before heading back to Phi Phi Don for lunch and an afternoon of enjoying the beaches there.
About Ao Nang
The drive towards the coast is characterized by limestone karsts appearing one after another on the horizon, each larger and more awe-inspiring than the previous. The main beach here -- Ao Nang -- rolls into view as if from a glossy magazine centerspread: endless stretches of emerald blue water turning into froth at the touch of the white sand, with longtail boats gently rocking to the rhythm, sticking their elegant necks out in perfect symmetry. As you go through your days here, though, you realise nearly everything is a picture postcard. Not just the many ridiculously perfect-looking beaches, but also the pristine coast-hugging roads, the quirky roadside shacks, heck -- even the shop-lined streets.
