    TASMANIA 2-WEEK ITINERARY GUIDE

    Tasmania, nicknamed Tassie, is an island south of Australia, separated from the mainland by the 240 km of the Bass strait. Despite being the 26th biggest island in the world, Tasmania is Australia’s smallest state (since the ACT is technically a territory), counting a little over 500,000 inhabitants. It takes roughly 3 hours to drive coast to coast, both in a north to south or west to east direction. The capital Hobart is well connected to mainland Australia with daily flights to and from the biggest cities. Although the most adventurous way to reach Tassie is definitely by ship. We couldn’t miss the sailing aboard the Spirit of Tasmania ferry,…

    EXPLORING CORON, A PARADISE IN THE PHILIPPINES

    Coron, municipality on Busuanga Island north to Palawan, is the last natural beauty we’ll be able to appreciate here in the Philippines. First of all, a due clarification about the names here: Coron is both a municipality on the southeastern side of Busuanga Island, a town (officially Coron Town Proper), and also the name of the wonderful island offering the most famous natural attractions in the area. EL NIDO-CORON FERRY Our fast ferry from El Nido to Coron was rather well comfy, although chilly air conditioning is often an issue on these boats, you better bring a hoodie with you. Also the sea was a bit rough, having our seats…

    ISLAND HOPPING IN EL NIDO, NORTH PALAWAN

    Here we go island hopping in El Nido, the northern most region on Palawan and probably the most known too. Hitting the town in the morning we immediately understand that tourism is becoming well established here, way more than previous places we’ve been to in the Philippines such as Cebu and Bohol. El Nido is a simple village with a road on the beach side leading to the port that has become home to plenty of businesses: restaurants, hotels&hostels, dive centres, scooter rentals and travel agencies. EL NIDO ISLAND HOPPING TOURS The drill is pretty simple here: head to any agency or hotel and book one of the 4 available…

    KOH SAMUI & KOH TAO, GULF OF THAILAND

    Our unforgettable week in these amazing Thai islands: here’s how to get there, how to move from island to island in the archipelago, what to do and where to stay. As usual, since we have been living in Vietnam for more than one year now, every 3 months we have to take a forced holiday, leave the country and come back in order to get a new Vietnamese visa. Not too bad! Truth is, we obviously love this, knowing that we have to plan a new trip every now and then keeps our minds and imagination always busy dreaming of new places to discover! This time we are not going…

    SPEEDBOAT ON LAKE TONLE SAP: AN UNFORGETTABLE CROSSING

    We are about to leave Siem Reap after spending four days there and having the chance to see the wonders of Angkor. We are now headed south to Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city, and we decided to reach it by boat across the huge Lake Tonle Sap. Tonle Sap is the biggest lake in south-east Asia, and here’s the remarkable experience we had crossing it.   LEAVING SIEM REAP Our journey from Siem Reap starts with a 10 km bus ride, which will be longer or shorter depending on where and how many stops have to be done to pick up people. In our case very long, with 24 people on…

    MEANS OF TRANSPORT

    A brief note on which means of transport we are going to use. Of course, we are flying from Italy all the way to Thailand but, after that, we won’t use any planes anymore, come on it would be too easy and no fun at all! So, apart from aircrafts, anything goes! By bus, train, taxi, tuk-tuk, scooter, walking, hitch-hiking, riding weird animals, by ferry, bike, or even swimming! As long as it works, we are ready to do it. You can’t say you have been to Bangkok if you haven’t hopped on a tuk-tuk (personal great experience!), so we will use them 100% to move around the chaotic city. We will then…
