Graceful, historic Hoi An is Vietnam's most atmospheric and delightful town. Once a major port, it boasts the grand architecture and beguiling riverside setiing that befits its heritage. Mui Ne
Once upon a time, Mui Ne was an isolated stretch of sand, but it was too beautiful to be ignored and it's now a string of resorts. Mercifully , most of these are low-rise and set amid pretty gardens by the sea. The area is definitely moving upmarket, but there is still a surfer vibe Ho Chi Minh City
Ho chi Minh City is a metropolis on the move, and we are not just talking about the citys motorbikes.

Rooms - £11 This welcoming place on a quiet lane has excellent rooms; pay more for the luxury of a window. Showers are excellent Phnom Penh Sihanoukville Koh Kong Phnom Penh: The name can't help but conjure up and image of the exotic. This is the Asia that many dreamt of when first planning their adventures oversea. Phnom Penh is a cross-roads of Asia's past and present, a city of extremes of poverty and excess, of charm and of chaos, but one that never fails to captivate. Surrounded by white-sand beaches and relatively undeveloped tropical islands, Sihanoukville is Cambodia's premiere seaside resort. The city's lively bars and sands remain pretty laid back, offering bliss and relaxation by day, drinking and chilling by night. Once Cambodia's Wild West, its frontier economy dominated by prostitution and gambling, Krong Koh Kong is striving towards respectability as ecotourists scare the sleaze away Top Banana Guesthouse

Room £4 - £7 Nine neat, clean rooms with spiffy furnishings and hot water line along, narrow courtyard Chiang Mai is a cultural darling; it is a cool place to kick back and relax, the streets of the old city are filled with monks and motor-cycle driving housewives, bookshops, outnumber glitzy shopping centres and the region's Lanna heritage is worn with pride Chiang Mai Awanahouse
Room £4.60 - £17.50 What started out as a small guesthouse has grown into a multi-storey apartment-style building on a quiet soi. Awana is a bit institutional, but has large and bright rooms. The cheapest rooms have fans and shared bathrooms Smile House 1
Room £6.20 - £20.50 A little backpacker village flourishes around an old Thai house here. It's tucked away in a small nok of the old city. It's popular with backpackers for lounging around the pool cold drink in hand Daret's House
Room £3.30 A long-time backpackers fave with stacks of well-worn rooms, Daret's looks like many of Th Khao San's backpackers flop. But because this is Lanna-Land, amiable Khun Daret is often found in the cafe downstairs. You pay more for the luxary of hot water Ko Pha-Ngan
Swaying coconut trees, brooding mountains, ribbons of turquoise water: Ko Pha-Ngan has held fast to its title as favourite backpacker idyll. Despite some modernisation in ealy 2000s, it is still rustic and remote, and there are still some cheap beachfront bungalows intended for hammock-hanging and simple living. Ko Tao
Today, thousands of visitors come to worship the turquoise waters offshore, and then quite often stay. Many years have passed since the first backpacker came to the scrubby island and planted a flag in the name of self-respecting scuba-holics everywhere (hello pizza parlours and ladyboy shows) but fret not, there's still plenty of time to join the tribe Krabi/Railay
Krabi's fairytale limestone crags come to a dramatic climax at Railay, the ultimate jungle gym for rock-climbing fanatics. This quite slice of paradise fills in the sandy gaps between each craggy flourish, and although it's just around the bend from chaotic tourist hustle in Ao Nang, the atmosphere here is nothing short of laid-back, Rasta-Thai heaven. Ko Phi-Phi
Oh, how beauty can be a burden. Like Marilyn Monroe, Phi-Phi Don's stunning looks have become its own demise. Everyone wants a peice of her. A hedonistic paradise where tourists cavort in azure seas and snap pictures of long-tails puttering between craggy cliffs. Ko Lanta
Long and thin, and covered in bleach-blondtresses, Ko Lanta is Krabi's sexy beach babe. The largest of the 50-plus islands in the local archipelago, this relaxing paradise effortlessly caters to all budget types with its west-coast parade of peach sand Trang Islands
The mythical Trang Islands are the last iteration of the Andaman's iconic limestone peaks before they tumble into the sea like sleeping giants. Shrouded in mystery and steeped in local legend, these stunning island Edens are home to roving chow lair (sea gypsies) and technicolour reefs. Bangkok
Bored in Bangkok? You've got to be kidding. This high-energy city loves neon and noise, chaos and concrete, fashion and furniture. But look beyond the modern gadgets and you'll find and old-fashioned village napping in the shade of narrow soi (lane). I will be flying on March the 15th to Thailand! Either landing in Bangkok Or in Chiang Mai From Thailand I shall be heading to Laos! From Laos I shall be heading to Vietnam From Vietnam I shall head to Cambodia I may pop over to the Philippines but I'm undecided And from Cambodia my next destination is Thailand! And that is where my journey ends!
