We often get asked what our favourites places have been and it’s difficult to look past Vietnam in many aspects as it’s the country we spent the most time in, explored the most thoroughly and therefore got to know the best. We spent some of our highest and lowest moments of the trip in Vietnam so it will always be a special place for us. We know we’re biased and not everyone will have the same experiences, but we’ve complied an award list detailing (from our personal experience) some of our favourite aspects of Southeast Asia.
