    Just had 2 cracking weeks in Malaysia. Great food, cheap (though not outrageously), reasonably easy to get around, cleaner and less chaotic than some of its near neighbours. Pity about the heat and humidity, but not much you can do about that.

    Now got a couple of days in Singapore before continuing to Australia, then NZ. There anything in particular to do in that time? That doesn't cost a fortune, funds are getting stretched...

    Malta is great but wouldn't recommend it in August. The 32-35 heat is OK but the humidity has been obscene at times. Aborted one day out sightseeing as it was just too horrible. Will definitely come back at a different time of year when not as humid and see the rest of the sights.

    Valetta and Victoria are great days out.

    Back in Athens for a day. Walking about at night. Ended up walking past a mob throwing molotov cocktails at riot police. Pretty hairy. But I was told this was nothing out of the ordinary.

    I'm thinking about planning a trip for the family (wife and three little kids) to visit London next year. Part of it is that I need to plan a trip for the missus's 35th birthday, plus we'll get to see her aunt that just kicked cancer's ass, and I'd love to plan it around Pakistan playing a Test at Lords.

    So with that in mind, CW, any suggestions? I haven't been to London since '09 when I was single and happy enough to stay at a roach-infested hotel close to a tube station. Now I need to find a quality place to stay but not break the bank. Which areas should I keep in mind? Pakistan play at Lords end of July, what type of ticket pricing should I expect to watch 2 days? It's not a heavy rain season I don't think, right? I really think she'll like Scotland. Any beaches you'd recommend? I stayed with family in Glasgow last time but things are a bit... awkward with them right now. Any good places outside of the city to stay?

    Sorry if my questions are a jumbled mess, it's mostly me thinking out loud.

    Stay in Scotland and visit for a few days of the Test if you must.

    London is a bit of a hole. Parts of it are proper 3rd world and the food isn’t great either.

    I stayed in Ibis near Shep’s Bush and it was clean, budget friendly and next to the tube. Zone 1 and near all the usual touristy stuff.

    Get an Air BnB or serviced apartment mate. If you're looking for a place to stay fora family of five, hotel rooms will kill you in London in what passes for summer there. Plus they're incredibly cramped and poorly ventilated.

    I'm currently in Hanoi hanging out with a friend who has moved here for six months for work. I was actually here only 6 months ago so am working remotely rather than doing much touristy stuff, and just enjoying the good cheap food (and also being 6 hours behind NZ means no one really bothers me)

    Spent a week in Taipei last week which was cool, my first time there.

    Off to Kuala Lumpur for a couple of days shortly, and then to Singapore for a few days. Haven't been to KL before so plan on going to Batu caves and Petronas Towers. Last time I was in Singapore was like 15 years ago so will be cool to see what has changed.

    enjoy vietnam man, that place is cool

    i'm thinking either sicily, greece, turkey, armenia or america for my next crack. initially i wanted to see the new york natural history museum, grand canyon, yellowstone etc but i was thinking about syracuse the other day and how it's a history nerd paradise no one really thinks about.

    i also need to do some research into turkey to find out what remains there. anatolia and the near east is so fascinating with all the different cultures who have passed through there.

    cambodia was genuinely awesome even if you don't count the ***

    meals are cheap like 2-3 usd if you eat at food stalls and 5-6 is you eat at restaurants

    their currency is so undervalued that almost every transaction is done via usd

    rooms cost like 20$ each split between two people

    siem reap

    catching the sunrise at angkor watt was quite the experience

    got a ****** guide tho and paid him like 70 usd

    prick didn't say much about the significance history of the place and just took photos of us every two minutes and didn't send the pics until yesterday wac - only guy i was rude to in camodia

    food is cheap unless you eat near the touristy locations

    night markets are awesome

    there is place called pub street frequented by tourists and tuk tuk drivers are more like drug dealers than drivers

    had a coconut mango pudding at a stall and came back every night to have the same thing

    they shout at you like "tuk tuk, weed, cocaine, mushrooms!" if you are a tourist

    a bag of greens is 15$

    food is inexpensive and delicious- won't find a cheaper location for food in any of the other tourist attractions - just go to a food stall that looks busy with people and you'll be fine

    koh rong samleon

    one of the two big islands of koh rong

    this one is quiet and has lazy island music at nights with camp fires and locals doing fire tricks

    food is overpriced but sea food is really fresh and tasty - deep fried whole garlic king prawns were epic and definitely a highlight

    spent one day and one night in koh rong samleon

    koh rong main island

    the party island

    you have pizza joints, bars and restaurants

    a couple of bars sell happy cookies(mj edibles) and also weed at the counter

    i asked nicely and pretended that i had never smoked weed before and the cute chick behind the counter sold me a smaller bag to trial for like 5$

    the girl wanted to go scuba diving on day 2 but i don't know how to swim and i am terrified of the water so i kinda threw one of those tube thingies into the water near the dive boat and floated around for a bit in the water while high af

    something brushed against my leg underwater in the sea and i freaked out and tried getting to the boat thinking it was a shark but it was just plastic trash in the sea

    and then i got to the deck and intensely focused on a shadow below the boat thinking it was a shark but it turned out to be the boat's shadow plus my head that i thought was the fishy's fin

    we went to see the bio luminescent plankton at night but you had to know how to swim to see them properly by going underwater, otherwise you could only see like 10% from the boat - i saw 10%

    then we hired a scooter from a shop and drove around the island through makeshift roads made on steep hills

    i got the scooter stuck on sand and had to put in a **** load of effort in the 34 degree noon heat to get it out and was down for the count after that

    went for a dip in the beach every now and then while riding around at beautiful spots

    was really terrified about dropping the scooter in one of the hills but was strong/skilled enough to finish the trip without accidents

    felt nauseous but couldn't throw up all evening meh so i skipped dinner

    twice as expensive as siem reap on average but its kinda worth it

    phnom penh

    capital city

    **** hole

    bad overpriced food compared to the other places

    cheapest room with air con was found in a red light district

    didn't know it was a red light district until we got there and there were hoors all around the street

    got a foot massage with the girl that i was forced into

    won't lie it felt good

    every other customer had a girl do it but i of course got massaged by a guy

    ffs

    went to the killing fields

    incredible but sad place

    they give you an audio device to listen to while you walk around the spots

    the audio guide was really well done and easy to understand

    the khmer rouge were brutal and killed 1/4th of the country's population in similar killing fields all around the country and it happened in ****ing 1979 ****

    went there on the last day before leaving and it was the one place that the girl really wanted to see

    but she got depressed af and didn't want to **** that evening

    i mean how long is it appropriate to wait for *** after seeing a tower of skulls that have been collected from mass graves? idk. but i got hard at the baby burial site.

    jk but yeah that place was emotionally draining

    if i did it all over again, i'd just spend extra time at siem reap and at the islands and spend like a day max at the capital

    thinking about going to laos next year which is supposed to be twice as inexpensive
