“Having a good time in Myanmar, ground transport is slow and packed but fun. At the moment I’m in Bagan, fascinating place – thousands of temples and ruins, next to Inle Lake and then Yangon.”

(From Thailand) “Weather very hot. Sun factor 20 everyday. Hired out car again and visited many islands by boat. Went snorkelling at Hong Island and took a speedboat to other islands. Great night markets and good food and cocktails. Plenty of sunbathing on Poda, Chichien Island and Phi Phi.”
