Mt Bromo


IMG_4701_2.jpg

The trip from Bali to Java brought me to the slopes of Mt. Bromo, an active volcano. Arriving as I did at 2 AM, it only made sense to set out immediately to witness sunrise at the top.

IMG_4894.jpg

My first 'real' stop in Java was the city of Yogyakarta, surrounded by ancient and massive temples, a traditional sultan's palace community, and all those things that make Asia Asia.

A zoo where you drive right through the enclosures, Jurassic Park-post-power-outage style. Keep the windows closed if a tiger comes near!

Singapore


IMG_5313.jpg

A stop in this city-state was a great chance to be among fellow travellers again, not to mention a very western-feeling eastern city.

Cameron Highlands


IMG_5679~0.jpg

The Cameron Highlands are the heart of the massive Malaysian tea industry. The hills are covered in undulating tea plantations and it was here that I tasted what is definitely the best tea I've ever had.

Taman Negara


IMG_5858.jpg

A journey to the dark beating heart of Malaysia, Taman Negara, one of the oldest rainforests in the world. We took a two day trek, slept in a cave, and tracked tigers. All in a day's work.

East Malaysia


IMG_6069~0.jpg

Starting in Kuantan and working my way north to the Thai border, with notable stops in Cherating, Pulau Kapas, and the Perhentian Islands, the East coast had so much to offer.

Thaislands


IMG_6413.jpg

Islands and beaches in southern Thailand were terrific in all terms; unfortunately I had to cut my time short so this only includes Ko Lipe, Ko Phi Phi, Hat Yai, and Ton Sai.

Bangkok


IMG_6756.jpg

Two days in Bangkok is not enough, especially when you're still recovering from Dengue Fever, but I think I made a valiant effort to get a taste for it.

Northern Thailand


IMG_6837.jpg

Around Chiang Mai and Pai, two great places to drop your backpack in northern Thailand. Cooking schools, treks with elephants, hill tribes, and exoticness.
