My first encounter with Asia began with a three month trip exploring the islands and beaches of Thailand. This sparked my fascination with the beauty of Asia and a curiosity about its wonderful cultures. I’ve since spent time exploring the islands of Indonesia, visiting the ancient temples of Cambodia, and venturing from the south to the north of Vietnam on a motorbike.
Asia is full of inspiration and wonder, and is packed with eye-opening adventures, intriguing cultures and delectable food. I just adore it.
Favourite places I've been
- Travel with a shawl. It packs light and can be used for conservative experiences such as visiting temples in Asia.
- Take photos of your favorite designer clothing, in Vietnam and Thailand they'll tailor an outift just for you in the finest silks.
- Go easy on the spice if you’re asked your heat preference. Food in Asia can be a lot hotter than you may be used to!
- Wake up early to see the spectacular sunrise in Siem Reap when visiting Angkor Wat. It's much more peaceful at that time of day and you'll avoid being shoulder to shoulder with other visitors.
My hot picks
Float along the Mekong River from Vietnam to Cambodia on a 5 star boutique hotel with a Michelin-starred chef on board.
