We thought we’d give you a different view of our trip. We started this list a couple of months ago while on a night train between Hanoi and Hue, Vietnam. We finished it over a bottle of wine just a few of nights ago.
Hong Kong was our final destination, so Jeff and I decided that, even though we were practically out of funds, we were going to splurge and go out with a bang.
After a bone shattering speed boat ride, we arrived at the Island of Langkawi, just off the north-western coast of Malaysia. Popular for its duty free shopping, the modernity of the island was a bit overwhelming after laid back Thailand. Drinking stiff cocktails and listening to a cover band play reggae tunes, we brought in the new year dancing with the locals and tourist in the surf while bonfires raged on the beach.
