I want more. Much more. Money? No way! I want more time! More time to live – 106 healthy years. But I first and foremost want longer days – at least 36 hours, better yet 48.
I came to Kampot today.
Kampot is very, very nice, actually the nicest place in Cambodia so far. Apart from the deserted beach on Koh Rong, but you cannot compare a secluded beach to the capital of a province.
While Kampot is nice, the guest house I’m staying at is the coziest I’ve been to in Cambodia by now. The room is quite small, but it’s so pleasant and with all these pretty, pretty details. I’d like to spend time here. Quality time. Reading. Writing. Cherishing.
So here comes my guide to Siem Reap – beyond Angkor Wat. A place that at first made me feel bad. And ignorant.
Because contrary to expectations, Angkor did not blow me away.
This lack of enchantment makes me feel like such a jaded snob who thinks to have seen it all. However, I remember how the temple site in Sukhothai dazzled me. Was the spell broken? Will I no temple ever mesmerize me again?
My three-week visit to the Island of Sri Lanka was a mesmerizing experience. The historic remains, the preserved natural richness, the white beaches, and colorful traditional attires were pleasing to the eye and soothing to the soul.
Let this guide take you to some of the most amazing places this beautiful country has to offer.
Here comes my guide to Anuradhapura. Anu… what? Read my lips: Anuradhapura. It is one of Sri Lanka’s ancient capitals. A visit can easily be combined with a trip to Mihintale, a holy place of Sinhalese Buddhism.
Although it’s also famous for its ruins of an ancient Sri Lankan civilization, there are pleasingly few tourists around, but huge numbers of truly faithful.
Polonnaruwa was the second capital of Sri Lanka after the destruction of Anuradhapura in 993. First of all, I’d like to say that due to their length, these Sri Lankan names are very twitter-unfriendly.
Apart from the Brahmanic monuments built by the Cholas, Polonnaruwa consists of the monumental ruins of the garden-city created by Parakramabahu I in the 12th century.
It wasn’t even on purpose that I neatly divided my trip into three parts: culture tour during the first week, nature trip during the second, and now it’s the final countdown on the coast. Beach Hopping from Mirissa.
But first I spent two thoughtful and memorable days in Tangalle.
More than in any other Asian metropolis, tradition, and modernity in social graces, culture, and architecture are so balanced. A visit to Thailand’s vibrant capital is a must on every trip to Thailand.

Therefore it’s very convenient, that most individual travellers are landing in Bangkok, a city certainly worth a visito of more than just one night.
