I walked through the streets of Little India, continue to lights and a young woman smiling on Orchard Street. Tony Tan runs the food is an institution in Singapore, not in the usual sense Duck and Hippo Tour, but as “people who want to know who is actually running Singapore food do” trip.
Tony Tan is one of my friends. I’m walking around, eating just two bites of meat and vegetarian dishes such as Tony explains the importance of the housing program of the Government of Singapore. Store is a staple of touring Tony and Jenny have been made to group fruits rare outside of South Asia – mangosteen, apple water, fruit in the eyes of the dragon and more.
The tour paused outside a mosque in Joo Chiat Road. When we last hot curry, Tony sets the gold standard in Singapore on religious tolerance. Tony brings a group Guan How quickly as possible from the most famous Peranakan restaurants in Singapore. Dessert ends. Peranakan style pork fat black … curry beef stuffed cabbage … … Yellow noodles … pork sausage and rice …
Kim and Tony will open, displaying two large crab, swimming – or rather, drowned – in a light pink pepper sauce. There is more food on the table, yellow pepper sauce and bread. Tony tries to reason with myself.
Southeast Asia has long been a major stopping point for backpackers around the world. Exotic destinations, beautiful beaches and mountains, bustling cities, fantastic food, friendly people, a well trodden tourist trail, and super cheap prices all contribute to one of the top regions in the world for traveling.
From the smiling faces and pristine beaches in Thailand, to the incredible, fresh food in Vietnam, to one of the most impressive sites in the world in Cambodia, to the sleepy, still undiscovered lands of Laos, Southeast Asia is ripe for the picking if you love to travel.
Planning your trip to Southeast Asia
- Bus quality varies from country to country and even city to city.
Minibuses- While not the most comfortable transport in the world.
minibuses are in all Southeast Asian countries in some form or another (costing practically nothing),The unifying factor amongst bus transport is that it’s dirt cheap.
Train- Trains are available in all countries as well, with some really nice ones in Thailand, in particular.
Boat- One of the coolest modes of transport around Southeast Asia is by riverboat.
In order to travel on a super, super cheap budget (think under $20-25US/day), you’re going to have to rough it a bit in Southeast Asia. Thailand and Vietnam are a little more expensive than Laos and Cambodia, but if you plan on $35US/day for these four countries, you’ll be traveling well most of the time.
Travelers can get visas on arrival in Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. For example, if arriving in Thailand by land, it is standard to only receive a 15-day tourist visa, but if you arrive by air, you receive a 30-day visa. Laos and Cambodia both offer 30-day visas upon arrival.
