Peaceful Phuket

A late night departure out of Dubai. It’s very rare for me to depart at 11pm which made a change but it was a short five hours and twenty minutes over to Phuket International Airport. Landing in the early morning, we made our way across to the hotel and I slept for a few hours…

Seoul Searching

An early morning departure from Dubai at 3:30am, and this time I was heading to Seoul in South Korea. A while since I last visited back in 2016, and I was excited to explore the city which I didn’t manage to do last time despite it being winter and VERY cold. We landed late afternoon…

Tea Tasting In Taiwan

Another early morning start out of Dubai at 4:50am and it was 7 hours and 10 minutes over to Taipei in Taiwan. Last time I was here it was over two and a half years ago, so I was excited to be heading back and exploring more of what Taiwan has to offer. Landing around…

Shimmering Shanghai

I’m always happy to see Shanghai on my roster and this was the early morning departure from Dubai at 3:15am which meant I would finally be able to see the Shanghai skyline lit up at night! A nice and easy 7 hours over to Dubai where the majority of passengers slept, we landed into Shanghai…

A Six Day Trip: Singapore and Melbourne

I managed to swap my Kuala Lumpur and London Heathrow flights for a six day trip to Singapore and Melbourne. I’d not visited either of these destinations since my first month of flying almost three years ago now, so I was happy to be going back there and getting three layovers rather than just two….

Koh Rong Island: Why Not To Visit

Our final stop of our vacation and we had decided to venture down to Koh Rong, an island off the south west coast of Cambodia. Known and loved for its beautifully pristine beaches and the ability to see glowing plankton on a night due to lack of light pollution on this remote island. Taking a…

Tonlé Sap: The Floating Village

I remember learning a case study on this when I was at school, and I would love to know if it’s the same place or not. One of the tourist “must do’s” when in Siem Reap, is to visit the floating village at lake Tonlé Sap. Tonlé Sap refers to a seasonally inundated freshwater lake, the…

Sensational Siem Reap

Onto our next part of the holiday we we’re visiting Siem Reap. A new country for both me and my sister and I couldn’t wait to finally explore Cambodia. We were staying for 3 nights and flew with Air Asia from Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok. A short one hour flight and soon we…

A Trip To Thailand

Time for me to head away on leave again with my sister and we were heading to Siem Reap in Cambodia. However, Emirates fly to the capital Phnom Penh in the south and with Siem Reap being in the north and wanting to show my sister another city, we had a 2 night stop over…

Back To Bangkok

I was actually rostered this flight to Thailand rather than pulled from standby, so that was a nice change! We departed Dubai at 3:40am and it was 6 hours 30 minutes over to Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok. Landing at 1:30pm, we made our way over to the hotel and I arranged to meet one…
