8 of the Best Cafes in Hanoi

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

The big cities in Vietnam have a cafe culture that is virtually unknown to the rest of the world. Don’t expect a Chemex of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe with hints of blueberry and strawberry or an Aeropressed Kenyan. You might be able to locate one eventually, but not before tripping over scores of cafes serving up tumblers of coffee so dark it looks like used motor oil and smells like the most intense mocha you’ve ever had. It’s no secret that we love Vietnamese coffee and as a follow up to our very popular Saigon cafes list, we offer a list of some of our favorites in the northern capital city. Also be sure to check out our handy guide to ordering coffee in Vietnam.

How to Book the Cheapest Hotels in 2018 (Which Match Your Travel Style Perfectly)

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

One of my biggest pieces of advice for booking a hotel has always been to ask yourself why. And the answer should be beyond the obvious “I need a place to stay for the night”.

Because millions of people are booking into hotels every night. But how many of them are actually getting their choice right?

The solution? Nustay; a new hotel search engine which has 1.2 million hotels at rates cheaper than any other online booking site (seriously). And, by crunching data about your interests, it matches you with hotels which reflect your travel style.

U.S. trade body backs Canada's Bombardier over Boeing in tariff spat

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

U.S. trade body backs Canada's Bombardier over Boeing in tariff spat By David Shepardson and Allison Lampert FILE PHOTO: Bombardier's CS300 Aircraft, showing its Pratt & Whitney engine in the foreground, sits in the hangar prior to its test flight in Mirabel, Qubec, Canada February 27, 2015. REUTERS/Christinne Muschi/File Photo WASHINGTON/MONTREAL (Reuters) - Bombardier Inc shares jumped 15 percent on Friday after the Canadian plane maker won an unexpected trade victory against Boeing Co which means it can sell its newest jets to U.S. customers without heavy tariffs. The decision by the U.S. International Trade Commission is the latest twist in U.S.-Canadian trade relations that have been complicated by disputes over tariffs on Canadian lumber and U.S. milk and U.S. President Donald Trump's desire to renegotiate or even abandon NAFTA. Trump has not weighed in on the dispute personally, but he has often railed against what he sees as unfair international trade practices such as state subsidies hurting U.S. businesses. The commission voted 4-0 on Friday that Bombardier's prices did not harm Boeing and discarded a U.S. Commerce Department recommendation to slap a near 300-percent duty on sales of Bombardier's 110-to-130-seat CSeries jets for five years. Boeing's shares fell slightly. "It's reassuring to see that facts and evidence matter," said Chad Bown, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington. "This part of the trade policy process works unimpeded despite President Trump's protectionist rhetoric." In a statement, Bombardier called the decision a "victory for innovation, competition, and the rule of law," and a win for U.S. airlines and the traveling public. Boeing said it was disappointed that the commission did not recognize "the harm that Boeing has suffered from the billions of dollars in illegal government subsidies that the Department of Commerce found Bombardier received and used to dump aircraft in the U.S. small single-aisle airplane market." Delta said it was pleased with the decision and looked forward to introducing Bombardier's CS100 to its fleet. Former ITC chairman Dan Pearson praised the decision. "Not a single commissioner was willing to buy Boeing's arguments," he said. "I think 'America First' is a policy of the White House and the Commerce Department. But it's not the policy of an independent agency (like the ITC)." The decision may end up helping Trump's plan to boost U.S. jobs as the CSeries jets for U.S. airlines will be built in Alabama rather than Canada. BOEING WIN EXPECTED The ITC had widely been expected to side with Chicago-based Boeing, which alleged it was forced to discount its 737 narrowbodies to compete with Bombardier, which it said used government subsidies to dump the CSeries in the United States during the 2016 sale of 75 jets at "absurdly low" prices to Delta Air Lines. The ITC, which currently has four commissioners, did not give an explanation on Friday for its decision. Through a venture with European planemaker Airbus SE, which has agreed to take a majority stake in the CSeries this year, Bombardier plans to assemble CSeries jets in Alabama to be sold to U.S. carriers starting in 2019. The case has sparked trade tensions between the United States and its allies Canada and the UK. Ottawa last year scrapped plans to buy 18 Super Hornet fighter jets from Boeing. The British Prime Minister's office said it welcomed the decision "which is good news" for the British industry, while Canada's Innovation Minister said the IRC came to the "right decision" on Bombardier. The fate of the CSeries and the well-paid jobs associated with the plane are important both to Ottawa and the British government. Bombardier employs about 4,000 workers in Northern Ireland, whose Northern Irish political party is helping keep Prime Minister Theresa May in power. -- © Copyright Reuters 2018-01-27

There’s no escaping the passion for sport in Melbourne

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The level of passion the locals have for sport in Melbourne is insane. Read the two major newspapers, listen to any talk back radio, or turn on the TV at pretty much any stage across the weekend, and chances are sport will be front and centre. I love my sport, I worked in professional sport in Melbourne for nine years, and even I get sick of the coverage. If there’s such as a thing as sports poisoning, then almost every Melbournian has a severe dose 12 months a year! If you’re a visitor to Melbourne with an interest in sport, you’ve come to the right place. At any time of the year you can check out some sporting event featuring the world’s best going at it. The number of world-class athletes who call Melbourne home and ply their trade here, plus the world-class athletes who visit with their clubs or for major sporting events is mind-boggling.

SKE enters renewable sector with investment in CBG production

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

SKE enters renewable sector with investment in CBG production By THE NATION Chutchai Sumethchotimetha, chief executive officer of Sakol Energy Plc. SAKOL ENERGY Public Company Limited (SKE), a provider of automotive gas services, is investing in the renewable energy business by entering into the CBG business, paving the way for the company to the lucrative market of large and medium-size plants with wastewater from production process to be used to produce biogas. SKE will add value by converting this biogas into CBG, therefore, enhancing sustainable growth. Chutchai Sumethchotimetha, chief executive officer said: “In 2018, the company expects its core business to grow from the increases in NGV volumes for the first time in several years. The main factors are the continuous logistics expansion and the increasing volume of transport, resulting from the increase in investments in the industrial sector and the government’s policy such as the establishment of Special Economic Zone in five provinces and six areas in support of EEC. The investment in the EEC project helped increase imports and exports. As a result, the demand for NGV gas have risen sustainably. In addition, the company also benefits directly from the temporary shutdown of PTT’s gas compression station for one year. Therefore, the NGV compression volume at the company’s nearby station have increased since the fourth quarter of 2017. The company has invested in CBG Gas Production and Distribution. The company will hold 75 per cent shares in RE Biofuels Co Ltd (REB), which is the CBG Gas producer and distributor with a capacity of 3,000,000 kilograms per year. REB uses biogas from waste water from tapioca factories as a raw material for CBG production. The whole process from tapioca starch factory, Biogas wells and CBG production and distribution are located in the same area for highest efficiency. REB will distribute CBG gas to NGV trucks and has signed sales agreement of 7,000 kilograms per day with Fah Sang Wood Chips Co Ltd, representing more than 2.5 million kilograms per year. SKE is confident that the CBG business will deliver a continuous and stable income for SKE. The company will invest approximately Bt86 million in this project with an expected payback period of about five years. In addition, the project also receives a Bt12 million from the Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency, Ministry of Energy for the bio-methane gas station (CBG) as well as tax benefits from The Board of Investment of Thailand (BOI). It is expected that SKE will start recognising CBG revenues as early as the third quarter this year. The company expects the CBG gas business to have strong opportunities as there are more than 1,000 sugar factories and many large factories like fapioca factories with a lot of waste water from the production process. That is the main raw material for the production of biogas. The biogas can be utilised in a variety of formats such as fuel for electricity generation, used to replace other more expensive fuels such as fuel oil, LPG to produce CBG as a replacement for NGV. SKE aims to invest in at least five biogas projects by 2020. At the end of 2017, the company decided to invest in an NGV conventional station of ex-pipeline with investment of about Bt500 million. It will be opened in Nakhon Sawan province within the first quarter of 2019. The conventional station of Ex-Pipe Line will generate higher returns than traditional retail NVG station. Both projects, CBG station and conventional ex-pipeline NGV station are two new businesses and two additional sources of income for SKE to support the steady income of SKE's core businesses, which provide gas compressed services to PTT Group under long-term contracts of more than 20 years. In addition, the company is looking for opportunities to invest in renewable energy to generate earnings and profit growth for the shareholders. SKE provides compressing gas for distribution by trucks provided by PTT Group. Currently, the company has two private mother stations: Pathum Thani Private Mother Station and Saraburi Private Mother Station. The company has a combined capacity of 750 tonnes per day. The company enjoys solid and growing financial performance. For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2017, it’s revenue was Bt247 million. Net profit was Bt56 million, lower than the previous year. Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/Corporate/30337252 -- © Copyright The Nation 2018-01-27

Experiencing a Whale Watching Tour in Sydney

by Sarah Appleford @ Travelling Apples

One of my most memorable experiences during our travels has been whale watching.  To see these enormous creatures launch majestically into the water is incredible.  So when I was up to Sydney for work, I couldn’t wait to catch the last of the humpback whale season with Oz Whale Watching tours. Gathered at King St Wharf 9 at 8am, we were a group of about 20 people with cameras eager to catch a glimpse of a whale or two.  Once on board we headed out through the Harbour guided by our host Biggles.  Sydney of course put on perfect weather for our outing which enabled us to soak up many of her sights including Luna Park, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Luna Park on the harbour’s edge The impressive Sydney Opera house best seen from the water Biggles’ voice could be heard in the background as we cruised towards the heads, sharing a bit of history of Sydney and about the whales themselves. During this time of year the humpback whales are making their way south, and sightings of mothers with their newborn calves can be had. This leg of their journey is a little slower than usual so [...]

Woman Answers Man’s Marriage Advert on Facebook as a Joke, Marries Him a Week Later

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

When Sophy Ijeoma, a makeup artist from Nigeria, decided to comment on an acquaintance’s Facebook marriage advert as a joke, she never imagined she would marry the man just seven days later, but I guess she underestimated the power of social media. The day before New Year’s Eve, Nigerian furniture maker Chidimma Amedu decided it was to find a wife. Instead of probing his friends or going on a dating site, he just posted an advert on Facebook, asking all women interested in becoming his wife to reply to his post. It read “Am of age to and I am ready to say I do and I am wasting no time. Send in your applications. The most qualified will be married on January 6, 2018. Application closes 12 midnight, December 31, 2017. I am serious about this… and don’t say you did not see it on time. Goodluck.” Amedu received a few responses from interested parties, but the one that caught his attention came from Sophy Ijeoma, an acquaintance he barely knew. She was maid of honor at a friend’s when she saw the funny post, and it piqued her interest. She had been Facebook friends with Amedu for about a year but had previously had little interaction beyond occasional likes and comments. Initially, she thought the post was a joke and replied saying: “Am interested, just DM me…lols.” “I never knew he was serious about the post,” Ijeoma told the BBC. Amedu, however, was completely serious. He sent her a private message, and they began chatting via Facebook messenger. Two days later the couple had their first date at a mall in Ijeoma’s hometown of Enugu, in southeastern Nigeria. Amedu traveled over 500 km (300 miles) from his home in the northern city of Abuja to meet her there. “It was love at first sight,” Ijeoma told reporters. “He is the most handsome man I’ve ever met, and I liked him instantly.” Amedu felt the same, and after taking one look at her said, “You’re beautiful”. After two hours of conversation, Amedu asked Ijeoma to meet his uncle who also happened to live in Enugu. Family support behind one’s choice of spouse is an essential part of Igbo culture. “We got to the uncle’s house, and he said: ‘Uncle, meet the woman I want to marry,'” Ijeoma recalled. “When I saw him for the first time, I definitely found him attractive, but what I didn’t know how serious he was about marrying me. It was after we met the uncle and his wife, that I realized that this could actually happen and I wanted it.” The couple decided to keep their momentum and seek the approval of Ijeoma’s family on the same day. Her father had passed away, so it was up to her elder brother to give his blessing, which, somewhat surprisingly, he did. It was official – Amedu and Ijeoma were engaged to be married all within hours of meeting. Full article

6 Reasons You Should Go On a Canal Barge Cruise

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Cruising has become one of the biggest trends in travel recently, though have you ever considered going on a canal barge cruise?

Canal barging is a unique form of slow travel popular throughout Europe, especially in France, Italy, Scotland and Ireland. The size of the canal dictates the size of the barge, but the maximum number of guests on board usually ranges from 4-12 passengers.

On board the barge are a handful of crew members who will help make your journey an effortless one, and while the options for barge cruises are vast, a luxury, all-inclusive barge cruise is definitely way to go.

While there are many reasons to take a canal barge cruise, here are the 6 most compelling.

SURVIVING BORACAY ALONE

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

In March of 2012, I was nearly finished with a 3-week journey moving west through the Visayas region of The Philippines. Visayas is famous for beach and diving destinations. I have never been very interested in beaches, so I was focused on the cities of Cebu, Dumaguete, Bacolod, Iloilo and Kalibo. I did, however, have a beach destination as my final stop before flying out of the country. That beach was the most famous beach in all of The Philippines- Boracay. I was all by my sad self during these weeks in the Philippines. I’d met people here and there along the way, but I didn’t join a backpacker caravan or fall in love. So, how is it traveling to Boracay alone, anyway?

The east coast of Tasmania is all about the beaches

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The east coast of Tasmania is all about the beaches. The sand is a brilliant white and the water a magnificent crystal-clear blue that you usually see on travel brochures and postcards. The big grey rocks with splashes of bright orange act as the beach’s bookends, while the native bushland that often lines the beach’s edge remains virtually untouched. The beaches are not tropical. Instead they are rugged, wild and sometimes isolated. And despite the Great Eastern Drive from Orford in the south to St Helens in the north being famous the world over for its spectacular coastal views, you’ll often have the beach to yourself if you choose to stop for a swim or a walk. Anywhere else on Earth, and a coastline like this would be a magnet for hotel chains, global tourist operators and real estate developers. But for some reason Tasmania’s east coast remains a quiet, charming and relatively undiscovered corner of the world lined with quaint little towns and spectacular national parks. We spent five days exploring the east coast from our rental home in Four Mile Creek, a town consistently of exactly four streets, a children’s playground and a cricket ground. Our balcony overlooked [...]

NLA allows delayed enforcement of MPs election bill

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

NLA allows delayed enforcement of MPs election bill By KAS CHANWANPEN THE NATION THE NATIONAL Legislative Assembly (NLA) late on Thursday night passed the MPs election bill with a clause that delays it coming into effect for 90 days after its promulgation. The members voted 213 to zero with four abstentions. The bill was passed after almost 14 hours of deliberations on Thursday. In the second reading of the bill, the stipulation deferring its enforcement by three months after the law is published in the Royal Gazette was passed with 196 votes for, 12 against, and 14 abstentions. As a result of the new law, the next election, tentatively scheduled for November this year, could now be delayed until February next year. The majority of the law vetting committee members reasoned that political parties needed the additional time to make changes in accordance with the new regulations. For instance, they would need to hold primary elections. Also, new members would not be eligible to contest in the election unless their membership was at least 90 days old, the legislators argued. Some NLA members proposed an even longer postponement – by 150 to 180 days. The lawmakers also spent considerable time debating punishment for those failing to exercise their voting rights, as well as the appropriateness of using entertainment in election campaigns. The law vetting committee had proposed that voters who did not exercise their franchise should be disqualified from serving in some areas of the government sector such as in Parliament. The legislators, however, disagreed, saying the punishment was disproportionate and deprived people of their rights. Not voting was not necessarily a lack of interest in politics but could be a way of expressing discontent, they argued. The NLA eventually voted to only take away their right to appoint political officials and heads of local administration offices. The NLA also voted to allow entertainment or recreational activities during election campaigns, but capped the spending on such activities at 20 per cent of the total campaign budget. The charter drafters had sought a ban on entertainment activities in election campaigns, arguing it could be used for vote-buying and corruption. Other legislators viewed it as an attraction to draw people to take part in political activities. Following the passage of the bill, it would now be sent to the Election Commission and the Constitution Drafting Commission for review. After getting their nod, it would be sent to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to seek royal endorsement. If the two commissions disagreed, a joint committee would be set up to revise the law. The NLA continued deliberating on the organic bill on the composition of the Senate yesterday. It was the last one of the 10 organic laws. The Democratic Restoration Group, meanwhile, announced a symbolic gathering today against the National Council for Peace and Order to protest against the likely postponement of the election following the passage of the MPs election bill.

Vietnam by bus – the cheapest and easiest way to travel | Overland Way

Vietnam by bus – the cheapest and easiest way to travel | Overland Way


Overland Way

When we think of Asia we think of chaotic traffic and almost non-existent road rules. So what do you do if you want to travel through a country where flights and rail travel are relatively expensive? This is our story of travelling by bus through Vietnam and how we found it to be the cheapest, most comfortable, flexible and efficient way to travel the country. When we got to Vietnam our plan was to travel from Ho Chi Minh in the south to Hanoi in the north and to see as much of the country as we could in between. However, we arrived in the bustling southern capital without any idea of how we would accomplish this! We really wanted to buy or hire a motorbike and have the freedom to drive ourselves around Vietnam, but our large amount of luggage (meaning we'd need to take 2 bikes), my lack of motorcycle driving experience and the overwhelming traffic conditions made us doubt the safety and flexibility of this option. Our bus from Hue to Hanoi So buying a bus ticket was our remaining

France urges more EU sanctions on Venezuela over 'shift to authoritarianism'

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

France urges more EU sanctions on Venezuela over 'shift to authoritarianism' French President Emmanuel Macron reacts with Argentina's President Mauricio Macri (not pictured) during a meeting at the Elysee Palace in Paris, France, January 26, 2018. REUTERS/Ludovic Marin/Pool PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron called on Friday for further European Union sanctions on Venezuela, days after the 28-nation bloc agreed a travel ban and asset freezes on seven senior Venezuelan officials. The West accuses President Nicholas Maduro's government of violating democracy and human rights in the oil-producing nation, which is in the grip of a major economic and social crisis with millions suffering food and medicine shortages. Venezuela's pro-government Supreme Court late on Thursday excluded the opposition coalition from registering for this year's presidential election, possibly splintering Maduro's foes by pushing political parties to put forward competing candidates. "Sadly things are going in the wrong direction," Macron told a joint news conference with the visiting president of Argentina, Mauricio Macri. "We'll have to see at the European level whether we want new sanctions. I am in favour of having them... I want us to go further given the recent decisions and the shift to authoritarianism." On Monday the EU announced measures targeting people in charge of security forces accused of widespread abuses, particularly during the 2017 anti-government protests. Earlier on Friday Spain, a prominent supporter of the new EU sanctions, declared Venezuela's ambassador to Madrid 'persona non grata' following an equivalent move by the Caracas government on Thursday. Critics of the 55-year-old Maduro, who succeeded Hugo Chavez in 2013, say he has ruined a once prosperous oil economy, turned Venezuela into a dictatorship and skewed the election system to perpetuate power for his Socialist Party. Maduro's government says it is fighting a U.S.-led right-wing conspiracy determined to end socialism in Latin America, hobble Venezuela's economy, and steal its oil wealth. Macron urged other countries that have wider economic ties with Venezuela to also impose "efficient sanctions." Argentina's Macri said Maduro continued to "violate the system" despite diplomatic pressure and he called for free and transparent elections. "It's not been a democracy for a long time," said Macri. -- © Copyright Reuters 2018-01-27

15 freelancer jobs to make money on the road

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

Being a freelancer is a recent phenomenon from a mass scale point of view. Once upon a time work and travel were mutually exclusive pastimes for almost everyone. You either worked or you travelled, but 99% of us really couldn’t do both. Of course back when I first travelled overseas I worked as a primary school teacher in London for two years, but that was different. I couldn’t just get up and live somewhere else one day just because I felt like it. I was living in London, in a bricks and mortar building I had to go to Monday to Friday, earning money by teaching little English kids how to read and write. Today things are much, much different. The freelancer community is exploding and the amount of people either leaving their jobs to freelance online, or negotiating with their employer to work from home or on their travels, is in the tens of millions worldwide. For many it doesn’t matter whether you’re in your home office or on a beach in the Bahamas, as long as you have a laptop and an internet connection you can do the exact same job to the exact same standards.

Greenpeace slams officials for failure to warn public about air pollution

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Greenpeace slams officials for failure to warn public about air pollution By PRATCH RUJIVANAROM THE NATION THE AUTHORITIES have come under criticism for downplaying the real threat posed by the recent air pollution in Bangkok, and urged the installation of a timely and accurate air pollution warning system to protect the people’s health. Thailand country director for Greenpeace Southeast Asia, Tara Buakamsri, on Thursday said the Pollution Control Department (PCD) had failed to warn the public about the threat to their health from air pollution despite having real-time data on the pollution in Bangkok and other major cities – especially particulate matter with diameter of 2.5 microns or smaller (PM2.5). “We need a proper air-quality warning system in order to protect the peoples’ well being and give them a chance to protect themselves from harmful air pollution. The recent PM2.5 surge in Bangkok shows the authorities had failed to warn and protect the people’s health,” Tara said. He said Greenpeace had been campaigning to raise awareness of air pollution and PM2.5 for more than seven years, but Thai authorities had still not included PM2.5 in the national Air Quality Index (AQI) calculation as the nationwide installation of PM2.5 monitoring devices was not yet complete. He said that Thai AQI does not represent the real air quality and it deprives people the chance to get ready and prepare for poor air quality, which could cause many illnesses such as respiratory diseases and heart disease. “One of the few good things that we saw from the recent surge in Bangkok is that more people have realised the danger of PM2.5. They have more awareness about air pollution. Previously, the public and also the authorities did not have proper awareness on the threat of air pollution and PM2.5,” Tara said. However, he stated that the authorities had failed to appropriately react to the growing concern about the poor air quality in Bangkok. Instead of issuing a warning about the dangerously high PM2.5 level, and urging people to protect themselves from air pollution, they played down the severity of the issue. “It was disappointing that even though the PCD had real-time pollution information in its hands and the threat to people’s health was imminent, it chose to inform the public that the air quality level was just orange and not red – the highest air quality warning level,” he said. He also suggested that the authorities come out with a policy to promote the use of public transport and encourage people to use their private cars less, because traffic was a major source of air pollution in Bangkok and other big cities. Meanwhile, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) Deputy Governor Suwanna Jungrungruang revealed that the BMA had initiated clean air zones with a pilot project in Pathumwan district to deter the air pollution problem, by growing more trees to purify the air and regularly cleaning the streets to reduce dust. “We acknowledge that the traffic is the main source of air pollution, but the BMA is not directly responsible for regulating traffic. So, what we can do is encourage commuters to use more public transport and regularly check their car engine to reduce emission of pollutants,” Suwanna said. “We are now undergoing major public transport system development in Bangkok. We assure that by 2029, Bangkok’s public transport system will be completed and interconnected, which can greatly reduce traffic in the streets and air pollution.” Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/national/30337266 -- © Copyright The Nation 2018-01-27

Why Thailand if Malaysia is so much easier and nicer

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Please can someone explain to me why anyone would chose to live or spend their holiday in Thailand compared to Malaysia? I am currently traveling through SE Asia and spent enough time in both countries to be able to compare the pros and cons of living and holidaying in both of them. Malaysia .) 90 days visa free stay. Visa run to neighbouring countries possible with another 90 days extension thereafter .) No ATM fees .) EVERYONE speaks English (for me personally the greatest of all benefits) .) Food, beverages, literally everything has English description .) Same prices for locals and foreigners, no "farang prices" .) Same food portions for locals and foreigners, no "farang portions" .) Food in general is DELICIOUS and comes in all variations (Malaysian, Indian, Chinese, Indonesian). Admittedly the only meal I do miss here is Mango sticky rice .) People seem more genuine, friendly and willing to help foreigners, answer questions. Willing to interact with foreigners (I guess due to being able to communicate in English) .) Sandy beaches are less frequent than in Thailand but still easy to reach, see Langkawi or other islands .) Shopping malls, cinemas, supermarkets etc are as shiny and humongous as in Thailand .) Price level comparable to Thailand or cheaper. Although Malaysia's GDP per capita stands at 9,502 USD, compared to Thailand's 5,907 USD - this source here says Bangkok is overall 21% more expensive than Kuala Lumpur https://www.expatistan.com/cost-of-living/comparison/kuala-lumpur/bangkok I am not going to list the benefits of Thailand as I can't think of any right now except the promiscuity of Thai ladies and perhaps being able to drink alcohol in public places. Also I'd like the Thaivisa community to give some input which country in their opinion wins the race and why. If anyone is wondering why I started this topic: pure curiosity!

My 13 favourite travel movies of all time

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

As someone who loves to travel, there’s something extra special about watching travel movies. I’m an enormous movie buff. I’ll watch almost any kind of movie, and even if it’s rubbish, find something to enjoy about it. As soon as I watch a really good travel movie, I want to head into my bedroom, get my backpack out, fill it up with clothes and head to the airport. Being inspired to travel by watching amazing travel movies is one of life’s great pleasures. Here is a list of my 13 favourite travel movies of all time. Apart from the common travel theme running through them all, they all have other concepts and ideas that conjures up an incredible sense of wanderlust whenever I watch them. The idea that it’s never too late to travel, it will change your life immeasurably, you’ll meet amazing people along the way, and that we should use every day we have to live life to the fullest, are so powerful they inspired me to sell everything I owned and set off on a nomadic adventure with my wife and son. So if you’re at home looking for travel inspiration, on the road with time to [...]

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN THAILAND

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand, with over 26 million foreign entries in 2016, can be a very touristic place to visit. By some accounts, 20% of the Thai GDP is based on tourism (worldwide nations average about 10%). Thailand is often an entry point for all of Asia, a constant revolving door of tourists on short or extended trips. We’re writing this article to help you avoid getting your hand caught in that often dangerous door.

Thailand is a country that can live up to its high expectations and reputation. It really can be paradise. On the other hand, it can be a disappointing place filled with drunken pub crawlers, tourist scams, empty promises and subpar made-for-tourists versions of local dishes. Pad thai made with instant noodles? You’ll find it all over Phuket and Koh Samui. If you venture past the tourists districts, the food ... Read More »

Phuket immigration says do your tm30 everytime u leave an go back

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

;-( The confirmation follows complaints from long-term expats that they were fined B2,000 for not re-registering their home addresses after travelling within the country. “By law, it is a requirement to register your address within 24 hours after being registered elsewhere, such as at a hotel or a guesthouse,” Col Kathathorn told The Phuket News this week. “It must be done because it’s the law. It’s the law in many countries,” Col Kathathorn said. Col Kathathorn explained that in order to re-report an address, the foreigner must come to Phuket immigration offices, in Phuket Town or in Patong, in person and provide their passport, a filled-in TM30 form and a letter of authorisation – or literally a power of attorney empowering the foreigner to register details on the landlord’s behalf – if the landlord is not present. “If it’s the same address as they were previously staying, the foreigner does not need to bring the rental contract proving their rental of the residence. We will have that information in the system,” Col Kathathorn noted. “If you have this letter (of authorisation from the landlord), the landlord does not need to come to immigration,” he added. https://www.thephuketnews.com/better-if-you-do-phuket-immigration-chief-urges-foreigners-to-re-register-addresses-even-if-staying-off-island-just-one-night-65744.php#2H6jsYcGQ333GyrU.97

Dear Female Travelers: Reasons Knixwear Is the Greatest Travel Underwear You’ll Ever Own!

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Forget your passport, when it comes to travel, appropriate underwear is one of the most essential things. (Don’t actually forget your passport, but I’m sure you get what I meant!)

But traditional cotton underwear isn’t always the best option for travel – they’re slow drying and they absorb moisture meaning cotton isn’t the most comfortable or hygienic thing to wear for extended periods of time.

Underwear might be one of those things you don’t think twice about, but purchasing a pair for the practicalities of travel can make or break a trip. There are plenty of options out there for travel-specific underwear, but when it comes to being specifically designed for women, Knixwear is a Canadian based brand you should know.

The following are seven reasons why Knixwear is the greatest travel underwear you’ll own. But the biggest reason? The amount of confidence you gain from wearing them, for all the reasons below.

Why Sri Lanka Inspires for a Second Trip

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Since I started travelling four years ago, I have been lucky enough to experience truly varied cultures and places, many of which I hold dear. Sri Lanka, however, has always had a special place in my heart and I’ve made it my mission to convince everyone else of its merits.

Despite a troubled past, Sri Lanka and its people are well on their way to a full recovery. More than that, they are very welcoming to people who wish to experience the beauty of their country and perhaps contribute a bit to stimulating the local economy.

I had such a great experience in Sri Lanka that I even decided to start my own blog about the country and inspire as many people as possible to visit! You can find the blog at takemetosrilanka.com.

With friendly people, incredible food, and stunning locations throughout the country, there are plenty of reasons to choose Sri Lanka as your holiday destination. You’ll love Sri Lanka for the following reasons, and it’s for these reasons that the country will inspire a second trip!

LIVE LIKE A LOCAL: RENT A SHORT-TERM APARTMENT WHILE TRAVELING

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

If you want to experience the true life of a place, experience it like a local: get an apartment in a true neighborhood. Wake up to the sounds of street vendors and garbage trucks. Be recognized with a smile by your local noodle-slinger.

If a city strikes your fancy, rent an apartment for a month and stick around for awhile.

Another advantage of worldwide Internet networking is that it allows us to exchange short-term apartments without going through an agent or company. Check the New York City craigslist sublet page and you’ll find plenty of Parisians happy to exchange their Left Bank apartment for a little temporary stepping stone on the Upper West Side. Though apartment exchanges are rare in Asia, there are plenty of expats and locals alike who will be vacating their adobe and happy to have someone trustworthy in ... Read More »

‘A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY’: THE TWILIGHT ZONE EPISODE THAT EXPLORES OUR NEED TO TRAVEL

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

“a place around the bend where he could jump off”

Created during a time (1959-1964) when American television seemed eerily clean and domestic, The Twilight Zone challenged viewers to examine a possibility of uncertainty beyond the comforts and assumptions of contemporary life. It was my favorite thing on TV. One episode in particular always stuck with me- A Stop at Willoughby. It brings up questions. How could such a ‘successful’ man working in a New York tower and living in an upscale suburb be so miserable? Why would he dream of escaping to a sleepy village where the streets have no name and the children wear overalls and go fishing?

A STOP AT WILLOUGHBY is the story of an advertising executive named Gart. Gart feels endless pressure from his pugnacious boss and his minion-like coworkers at his New York City office during ... Read More »

How to Order Coffee in Vietnam Like a Local

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Vietnam is a country that runs on coffee. There is a cafe on just about every block in Saigon and Hanoi and they’re packed most of the day with a mix of locals leisurely sipping away enjoying the day and others grabbing a quick fix on their way to wherever they’re headed. The cafe culture in Saigon is why it’s one of our favorite cities in the world. To see the list of our favorite Saigon cafes, check out our post on it.

Coffee is brewed differently in Vietnam. It’s sort of a mix between the French press and pourover methods and despite producing great coffee, it’s surprisingly “low tech”. You won’t see any chem-lab looking siphons or giant blown-glass drip towers. Coffee is brewed in a little metal filter called a “phin”. Grounds go in, water goes in, and coffee ... Read More »

An Overview of Different Travel Bags: Why it’s so Important to Choose the Right Bag for Your Trip

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

I’m sure every traveler at some stage has found themselves in the situation where they’re stuck traveling with the wrong kind of bag.

Whether it’s trying to lug a suitcase through the jungle and beating the crap out of your wheels (been there), or throwing everything into a hiking pack for a stay at a luxury hotel, a travel experience is often about choosing the right kind of bag.

And there are many different types of bags, which will be suitable for different types of trips. So don’t fall into the trap of thinking any bag will do, because you just need something which will transport your things.

Bags are not sacks. They are not meant to be used as sacks. Bags are painstakingly blueprinted to strike a perfect balance between design and utility, for specific types of trips.

So to avoid committing ‘bags faux pas’, consider the following types of bags, and which will be most suitable for your upcoming trip.

10 THINGS I CAN’T TRAVEL WITHOUT

Taking a Cruise: 6 Myths on Travel & Access

by wheelchairtraveling.com @ wheelchairtraveling.com

For some people, a cruise is the trip of lifetime, a celebration, a repeat occurrence, or perhaps the best and only way to travel, but not a utopia of wheelchair accessible travel. Cruise travel representatives will always say that cruising is wheelchair accessible, and to some degree they are right, but not entirely. Everything is not […]

Photo: Shela Riva PHUKET: The Chief of the Phuket Immigration Office, Col Kathathorn Kumthieng, has confirmed that all foreigners registered as living in Phuket must re-report their address to immigration after being registered as staying in a hotel within Thailand, even for just one night. The confirmation follows complaints from long-term expats that they were fined B2,000 for not re-registering their home addresses after travelling within the country. “By law, it is a requirement to register your address within 24 hours after being registered elsewhere, such as at a hotel or a guesthouse,” Col Kathathorn told The Phuket News this week.

Things You Should Consider as a Responsible Traveler / EcoTourist in 2018

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

We’ve all seen the obnoxious tourists waddling out of Subway in some beautiful, ancestral city. Chances are, if you catch us on the right day, we’ve all been that tourist.

There is, however, a revolution in tourism that is really starting to take off. A whole new way of thinking which prioritizes responsible travel, and considers the impact we have on the communities and environments we visit abroad.

The negative impacts of tourism are usually pretty clear to the traveler feeling particularly perceptive. But ecotourism is the belief that travel should be ultimately beneficial to both the tourist and the host country.

There is a balance we should all try to find while traveling: remain safe but also truly experience the local scene. Make ripples, but not a splash. Take only memories, leave only footprints. The following are four key things to consider for those looking to travel responsibly in 2018.

Philippines prepares for three-month-long volcano emergency

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Philippines prepares for three-month-long volcano emergency By Ronn Bautista and Roli Ng Lava flows from the crater of Mount Mayon volcano during a new eruption in Legazpi city, Albay province, Philippines January 25, 2018. REUTERS/Romeo Ranoco LEGAZPI CITY, Philippines (Reuters) - The Philippines is bracing for a possible three-month-long emergency in areas around an erupting volcano, which has already displaced more than 81,000 and led to overcrowded temporary shelters, the disaster agency said on Friday. Mount Mayon in central Albay province remained at alert level 4, a notch below the highest level, as it continued to spew lava, ash and other superheated material, volcanologists said. "We're gearing up for three months" of emergency, said Romina Marasigan, spokeswoman of the country's disaster agency, citing similar situations during previous eruptions of the 2,462-metre (8,077-foot) volcano. (Graphic: Mayon volcano's 9-km radius danger zone - http://tmsnrt.rs/2E1X3bI) Displaced families may need to stay in evacuation centres for that long, she said. Food and other supplies remain adequate but concerns are growing over health and hygiene conditions at all the 69 temporary shelters away from the danger zone. Respiratory illnesses are possible because of the series of ash falls, she said. "We remain on red alert," Marasigan told a media briefing, adding that 69,672 evacuees were housed in schools while nearly 12,000 took shelter in tents or went to relatives in more secure locations. Health workers are giving free check-ups and medicine to elderly women and children in evacuation centres grappling with a sanitation shortage. "The province is doing everything to close the gaps for these toilet facilities," said Nestor Santiago, assistant secretary at the health ministry. The number of cancelled flights has risen to 97, the disaster agency said. Volcanologists said there were seven more episodes of intense but sporadic lava fountaining at the crater lasting several minutes during a 21-hour period from Thursday morning. The lava fountains, shooting up between 150 m. (492 ft) and 500 m. (1,640 ft), generated ash plumes that spurted as high as 3 km (1.8 miles) above the crater, they said. Despite the warnings, some residents have refused to abandon the danger zone, with farmers worrying about leaving crops and cattle unattended, while others split their time between homes and evacuation centres they say are crowded and uncomfortable. Mayla Miraflor has a vehicle loaded and ready to flee if Mayon rages unchecked. "We have this jeep when we need to run," said Miraflor, who has eight children. "This is what we'll use when the time comes. We will leave as soon as possible." -- © Copyright Reuters 2018-01-27

Shopping in Melbourne, where to get your fashion fix

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

Melbourne is defined by its suburbs, and almost every suburb has it’s own shopping precinct. Shopping in Melbourne is like a sport all of its own, to go with the myriad sporting options every visitor to Melbourne should check out. Melburnians are no shrinking violets when it comes to fashion, with many of the country’s trends starting right here in Australia’s fashion capital. However, with so many options, from the biggest chain retailers to the smallest chic boutiques, from enormous shopping malls to suburban shopping strips, it can be overwhelming to know where to go to get what your looking for. To make your shopping experience a little less intimidating, here is a selection of the biggest, best and most popular Melbourne shopping precincts for you to check out during your visit. Bourke Street Mall, CBD Shopping in Melbourne, Bourke Street Mall (Source: Flickr/avlxyz) If you’re visiting Melbourne you’ll probably spend some time in the city centre, so why not start your shopping in the Bourke Street Mall.

What to Pack if You’re Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro (Packing List)

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

In October 2010 I traveled to Tanzania with the goal of conquering a mountain. And at 5,895 metres (19,341 ft), it was really, really tall. The highest mountain in Tanzania, the highest mountain in Africa, and the highest free-standing mountain in the world, if we’re keeping score.

I trekked through some truly incredible landscapes, transformed as a person along the way, and battled through one of the world’s most challenging journeys over 7 days.

Kilimanjaro is powerful, awe-inspiring, and an experience which inspires transformation. But if you don’t know what to pack it’s going to make your life a hell of a lot harder than it has to be.

Work and travel? 10 pros and cons of freelancing on the road

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

While Sarah and I managed to accumulate a small pile of cash from selling everything we owned before leaving on our nomadic adventure, we knew we were going to have to work and travel if we wanted to do this for the long haul. Not only did we need to cover our travel expenses, but we also had two mortgages to service, and the rental income didn’t cover the repayments. When we got to Thailand, about five weeks into our trip, I managed to get a job teaching English in Chiang Mai. It was only 16 hours a week which gave me plenty of time to explore the area, but the pay was ordinary by Australian standards at $US9 per hour. That meant while I made enough to enjoy living in northern Thailand, it didn’t even come close to covering the mortgage repayments back home. It was during our two month stay in Chiang Mai that Sarah started working online as a freelance writer. She signed up to a couple of freelancing websites and began applying for writing jobs. Despite having no experience as a writer, in no time at all she managed to acquire several clients via Upwork. Initially [...]

As many a traveler will tell you, taking an overnight train in Asia is quite an adventure, one that I have always found to be enjoyable and something to look forward to.Overnight trains are my favorite means of covering long distances because they're usually friendlier to my budget and more comfortable than taking long road trips being cramped in a small car or bus.The other advantage is that you get to stretch your legs out and get a good night’s sleep in exchange for just a little bit more than you would pay for a hostel or budget hotel.

10 awesome things to do in Melbourne

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

There are so many things to do in Melbourne it would literally take days to write a single article. So instead I’m going to choose 10 of the best that I believe you should do if you ever visit my home town. Melbourne has now won ‘The World’s Most Liveable City’ award, presented annually by The Economist, five years in a row. That’s an incredible achievement by anyone’s standards, but it’s easy to see why. No matter what you’re into there’s something for you to do, like dining in first-class restaurants, attending a wide range of sporting events in world-class stadiums, taking in a play or musical in gorgeous theatres, or experiencing masterpieces in our amazing arts precinct. There is of course just one problem with Melbourne, it’s expensive. There’s no escaping it, you’ll need a little money in your pocket to fully appreciate this city. But by using services like Couchsurfing, the free inner city trams, and free events that can be found at That’s Melbourne, you can definitely have a great time without breaking the bank. You could also do a free walking tour when you first arrive so you can work out where everything is and get [...]

34 bite sized travel tips to make life easier

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

When you travel nomad-style, slowly moving from place to place, you very quickly learn plenty of travel tips to make your life just that little bit easier. Stopping and soaking up the culture of a place, rather than ticking tourist attractions off a bucket list, is very different to using your 3-4 weeks off work every year to lie on a beach at a resort. Whether you’re travelling alone, with someone else, or as a family like we do, you’ll very quickly learn what works and what doesn’t for you and your particular needs and circumstances. Our first destination when we left Australia was Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, and before we’d left our first hotel we’d made changes to the way we travelled. Your travel learning curve really is that quick! So, to give you a head start on things to think about for when you start travelling, or even if you’re already on your way, here are 34 bite sized travel tips to make you’re travel life a bit easier. Learn to be patient I must admit I get frustrated easily, and when travelling like we do, frustrating situations arise every day. From not understanding the language, [...]

Move Over Las Vegas; Here are 3 Reasons Why Tourists Prefer Macau

by Meg Jerrard @ Mapping Megan

Thanks to appearances in countless Hollywood movies, Las Vegas has been widely regarded as the gambling capital of the world, with the bright lights of Sin City drawing visitors from around the globe for many decades.

However, the famous Nevada city can no longer claim to be the king of casino culture, and, in truth, hasn’t been for just over a decade now.

Rising to park itself firmly on that particular throne is Macau, which has transformed itself remarkably from what was once a sleepy fishing port to a booming Asian tourist destination at the top of many ‘must visit’ lists. Move over Las Vegas, because Macau is where the action is!

Vietnam Visa On Arrival – everything you need to know

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The whole idea of a Vietnam Visa On Arrival approval letter seems a little strange to me. Having to apply and send money to a website you don’t know is legit, to get emailed an approval letter that must be presented at your arrival airports Visa On Arrival office (with more money) before you get your visa is a real leap of faith, especially for the inexperienced traveller. Given Vietnam was the first country we went to when we left Australia, we were about as inexperienced as you can get. But this is the process we went through and it worked out perfectly. What is a Vietnam Visa On Arrival As the name suggests, a Vietnam Visa On Arrival is simply when you’re issued with your visa when you arrive by plane, as opposed to organising it before you leave your country. You can go through your local Vietnamese embassy to ensure you have a visa before you leave your country if you prefer, but it’s more expensive, you’ll need to send your passport away and it takes more time. The bonus is you can just walk through customs on arrival without having to head to the Visa On Arrival office, [...]

Koh Samed - Avoid

by @ Thai Visa Daily Digest

Just returned to Phuket from the "National Park". Avoid the island at all costs. The midnight curfew is still in effect. All major bars are closed on Silver Sand Beach and where replaced by new, overpriced beach restaurants (98% Chines customers!) The small Disco at the beach is closed. All bars at Vongduern beach are closed as well, only overpriced beach restaurants there (closing time 11.00 pm or earlier). No fun, no party at all. 98% Chinese customers everywhere. Entering the "National Park" costs you 200 BHT per person and I can assure you the "cashiers" in army dresses are informed of new arriving guests either by the boat captains or the Songthaew drivers. They stop every "taxi" and force you to pay 200 BHT entrance fee. On the beaches they follow you until you pay the "entrance fee". Really annoying. I went there for having fun and booked a couple of days at good beachfront hotels at Silversand Beach and Vongduern Beach and now I can't wait flying back home to Patong Beach. Absolutely boring Island and a tourist trap for Chinese travelers. (e.g. 500 BHT for a mini pizza). Welcome to crook island. Don't go there.

A Little Story… How One Maasai Tribe Is Changing the Face of Responsible Tourism

The sharp guffaw of a wild baboon startled me from sleep. Close as a whisper, the eerie sound ricocheted through my dreams. I awoke in full fight or flight response mode. My eyes whipped open, careening around the space; they slowly adjusted to the soft ochre light emanating from the banked campfire. From somewhere outside the dim […]
