Mount Kinabalu – the highest mountain in Borneo. She’s a beauty and a tough climb. I successfully made it all 4095.2 metres to the top and somehow survived the 8.7km walk back to the bottom, although my knees won’t agree with the usage of the word ‘successfully’. Here’s a photo blog of my hike.
The Shan Province of Myanmar is so incredibly beautiful. So beautiful that I have to think of other adjectives that don’t include the usage of the F word. I trekked from Kalaw to Inle Lake – a very scenic route through the countryside. This experience has solidified my belief that some of the nicest people in the world live in Myanmar – what a fantastic country!
After leaving Yangon, I first ventured south to a small town called Mawlamyine. After spending a few days there, I began the great trek north, through Kyaikto and Bago, eventually getting to Bagan. Here are some photos from the past week north bound.
If you come to Vietnam, seeing the Mekong Delta is just as vital an attraction as seeing the Eiffel Tower in Paris. I really wanted to see the floating markets in Cai Rang – where buyers and sellers meet on their boats and exchange money for a massive variety of fruit and vegetables. Here is a photo journal of my time there.
I could wax lyrical about this place until the cows come home, but what they say about a picture speaking a thousand words is so true when it comes to Tibet. Here are some photos from the 6 days I spent there. If you’re moderately interested in visiting this jewel of a place, now is the time – the Chinese are constructing up a storm there and I fear it won’t be the same for much longer.
I’ve been slowly proceeding into Southern China over the last month. I spent some time in the Yunnan Province, the capital of which is Kunming. China is definitely starting to get more cultural here, and nature is starting to become a bigger attraction than skyscrapers. That being said, where the Chinese can build a cable car, they will!
