Myanmar Travel Destinations

Myanmar Travel Blog & Guide In this Myanmar travel blog post (or guide!), you’ll find information about the various Myanmar attractions and tourist destinations. Let me first give you a brief background about tourism in Myanmar. The Myanmar travel and tourism industry has been in a standstill until recently. Previously, Myanmar was under military rule since 1988. Slave labour was used to build tourist facilities and it was difficult for local people to talk to tourists. As a tourist, you could get Burmese locals in trouble for speaking to you. Myanmar travel guides were also withdrawn from publication. Up until 2011, Aung San […]

Hoi An: Vietnamese Food

Hoi An is situated on the central coast of Vietnam. It’s a romantic little town lined with wooden Chinese-style shophouses and canals. Visit Hoi An during the full moon lantern festival on the 14th day of the lunar month to be treated to a spectacular display. During this time, the ancient town of Hoi An switches off electric lights and light up lanterns instead. It’s so magical strolling down streets lit with traditional lanterns, as it would’ve been centuries ago. You can also partake by sending paper lanterns with a candle down the river. But an especially important reason to visit Hoi […]

Shipsomnia Cruise Party 2016 – Phuket, Langkawi

I started 2016 by going on a party cruise with Shipsomnia. There’s a misconception that cruises are cheesy or for old people and families. That’s true to an extent, but the cruise I went on with Shipsomnia was definitely not cheesy nor filled with families or old people (not that I have anything against them). It was a total party cruise!   Music & Party Cruise Shipsomnia is a music festival on a cruise party ship and it’s filled with good looking people. There was definitely more men than women on this cruise party so that was great for Maggie (my cruise […]
