August in Review

We have had a busy month here at Flyingdog towers (well sat in my conservatory as I work from home).

Most popular blog posts included the Best Beaches in Thailand and Best Beaches in Vietnam, My Favoritite Things to Do in Bangkok, our updated statistics on COVID-19 in South East Asia and Don and Vik’s most excellent lockdown adventure.

There was also the true story of a European Roadtrip and a very popular recipe for Banh mi kep and we finished the month with a yummy recipe for Thai Cashew Chicken.

Here are the highlights from the month.

Angkor Wat

We were really excited to launch our new website section on the Angkor National Park.

We included features on Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Bayon, Ta Prohm, as well as a visitors guide. More content is planned soon.

Don and Vik’s Covid Adventure

We meet Don and Vik an Australian couple who decided to leave home and travel throughout South East Asia.

Then a pandemic hit and they suddenly found themselves in Malaysia during lockdown.

This is a fascinating and inspiring story.
