The Best of: South East Asia

There’s a hell of a lot to see in South East Asia, and in my six weeks I certainly didn’t see all of it. But what I did see was mesmerising, memorable and often majestic beyond belief. Here are my awards for the moments and memories that made South East Asia such an interesting and unforgettable experience for me…

N.B. This was pre-Singapore, which was mind-blowing in its own, very different way.
