Sisavangvong Road, Luang Prabang, Laos
I wanted to get as far away from "civilization" as possible. I thought riding an elephant in the jungle of Laos might appease that sentiment. Our safety briefing: "You ride with her, jump on back, ride in river. Water is wet." Uh...OK. They...

Lao-Thai Road, Vientiane, Laos
Wandering the backstreets of a nice neighborhood, I stumbled on an impressive Burmese-style temple in Vientiane! Sadly there isn't much explanation as to its unusual presence here.

Traveling up and down the Central-Mid Levels Escalator is a quick, efficient way to get around while at the same time immersing yourself in the urban jungle of Hong Kong. Stretching for over 800m and rising about 135m, the world's longest outdoor...

Tai O, Hong Kong
If you have half a day and would like to experience a different side of the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, head out to Tai-O on Lantau Island. You can get there by cable car or by a somewhat vomit-inducing bus ride from Tung Chung. The sleepy but...
