Thailand Top Places To Visit & Travel Tips | Indie Traveller Get the new Thailand Lonely Planet guide here (Paperback or individual PDF chapters) Thailand isn’t easily summarized. After several trips, I’ve realized that you can have such wildly different experiences there. Thailand rose to fame as a backpacker destination, but today it’s mainly about mass tourism. A veteran traveller might wince at the tourist crowds, but Thailand can still be magical—if you go to the right places. Thailand’s popularity does mean that travelling there is super easy, even if you have little travel experience. Railay Beach, Krabi Truly, if you want to go to a country where you have little to worry about, Thailand is a great option. Thailand is also perfect for solo travel. Crowds are a problem sometimes, in part due to the new influx of Chinese tour groups, which you’ll find particularly at the major tourist sites. Don’t miss the great street food in Thailand… Why you should visit Thailand Thai culture and street life. Downtown Chiang Mai Orientation Northern Thailand

Vietnam Backpacking Guide - Highlights, Maps, Places To Go | Indie Traveller Get the new Vietnam Lonely Planet guide here (PDF or paperback) When people ask me what I think of Vietnam, I always have to tell them I’m of two minds about travelling there. On the one hand, it is one of the most incredible countries I have visited; the vibrant chaos of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City blew me away, Halong Bay with its karst limestone islands is easily one of the most impressive sights in the region, and exploring a Vietnamese food market is arguably the ultimate Southeast Asia cultural experience. On the other hand, I should admit that backpacking Vietnam left a slightly bitter taste. Fortunately, the many positives of the country do outweigh the few negatives… Places to visit in Vietnam Here are just some of the best places to visit and top things to do in Vietnam: Enjoy the hustle and bustle of the big cities No other place in South-East Asia gave me more of a sense of wonder than Hanoi.

Inside New York’s Most Beautiful Subway Station, Abandoned Since 1945 Old City Hall Station (all photos by the author for Hyperallergic) Postcard of the “underground loop at City Hall, New York” (early 1900s) (via Wikimedia) (click to enlarge) I recently had the opportunity to join one of these tours, led by historian John Simko, who first showed us the site of what is technically the city’s first subway (Alfred Ely Beach’s 1869 one-stop pneumatic tunnel), as well as the remains of the station above ground, including some glass panels in City Hall Park that illuminate the skylights. A view down the platform today The station is remarkably intact, its ornate glass oculus still shining on the mezzanine where the ticket booth once stood, and the herringbone terra-cotta tile work in green and white brightly accenting the arches designed by Rafael Guastavino.

Cambodia Backpacking Guide - Highlights, Maps, Must-See Places | Indie Traveller Get the latest Cambodia Lonely Planet guide here (PDF or paperback) Cambodia is an unusual destination in Southeast Asia in that some travellers go here just to see one attraction, namely Angkor Wat, a vast and ancient temple complex that is officially the world’s largest religious monument. While it is without doubt a must-see, it would be a mistake not to also get to know the rest of the country—as Cambodia has quite a bit more to offer and there are many other things to do in Cambodia. Why you should go to Cambodia It’s a little adventurous. Tips for visiting Angkor Wat Let’s face it, Angkor Wat is what people primarily associate with Cambodia, so let’s just start here. Many backpackers go to see the sun rise over the main temple of Ankhor. One of the advantages of going in the early morning is that you can subsequently explore the other nearby temples before the hordes of package tourists arrive. Ask to be taken to the ‘Tomb Raider’ temple. So is Angkor Wat that amazing? Budgeting

World Map Cambodia flights Phnom Penh International Airport is the gateway to the Cambodian capital, while Siem Reap International Airport serves visitors to the temples of Angkor. Both airports have a good range of services, including restaurants, bars, shops and ATMs. Sihanoukville International Airport currently only offers domestic links with Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Flights to Cambodia are expanding, but most connect only as far as regional capitals. However, budget airlines have taken off in recent years and are steadily driving down prices. If you are heading to Cambodia for a short holiday and want a minimum of fuss, Thai Airways offers the easiest connections from major cities in Europe, the USA and Australia. Domestic airlines in Cambodia tend to open up and close down regularly. Some airlines offer open-jaw tickets into Phnom Penh and out of Siem Reap, which can save some time and money.

Visas and customs in Cambodia Cambodia has two international gateways for arrival by air – Phnom Penh and Siem Reap – and a healthy selection of land borders with neighbouring Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. Formalities at Cambodia’s international airports are traditionally smoother than at land borders, as the volume of traffic is greater. Crossing at land borders is relatively easy, but immigration officers may try to wangle some extra cash, either for the visa or via some other scam. Anyone without a photo for their visa form will be charged about US$2 at the airport, and around 100B at land borders with Thailand. Arrival by air is popular for those on a short holiday, as travelling overland to or from Cambodia puts a dent in the time in-country. Customs Regulations If Cambodia has customs allowances, it is tight-lipped about them. It is also illegal to take ancient stone sculptures from the Angkor period out of the country. Visas Most visitors to Cambodia require a one-month tourist visa (US$30). Visa Extensions
