Singapore may not be known for its great coffee, however many boutique coffee bars and cafes have recently sprung up around the city. This post will cover my favourite places for GREAT coffee in Singapore to kick-start your day.
Siem Reap: more than just temples
Siem Reap is a great base for exploring the temples of Angkor Wat. Expect cute cafes, tasty food options, cheap beers and massages.
Exploring Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat is a truly impressive sight. Constructed in early 12th Century, it is the largest religious monument in the world. This was one of the most memorable travel experiences I have ever had!
Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Much more than a brief stop on the way to visiting the temples of Angkor Wat; Phnom Penh provides an excellent introduction to Cambodia. Providing insight into the devastating history but also showcasing the beauty and resilience of its people, it's well worth adding the capital to your itinerary.
Grey in Huế
Hue, pronounced ''H-way'', seems to have a micro climate of its own.

Beautiful Hoi An, Vietnam
Hoi An is a town like no other. With beautiful colonial buildings and streets lit by colourful lanterns, it could not be more picturesque. Top it off with some of the most delicious Vietnamese food, and you'll leave wondering when you can comeback next.

Exploring Ubud, Bali
Ubud had been high on my travel list for some time - drawn in by the bright green rice terraces and the promise of zen.
4 nights in Canggu, Bali
Relaxing beach vibe; laid-back cafe culture; chilled beach bars; delicious food options. Canggu ticks all the right boxes.
Kyoto: temples, history & food
We only had a mere two days, three nights, to see this historically beautiful and interesting city. In hindsight this was not enough as there is so much to do and see - our days were jam-packed with temple-hopping, geisha-hunting, katsu-eating, and tasting the obligatory sake; which left us exhausted but wanting more.
