I spend a lot of time on this site talking about just how incredible South East Asia is.
This is my easily my favourite part of the world. Most of the time the scenery truly is stunning, the people really are friendly, the culture is utterly fascinating and the food … oh the food.
But, now and again, I find somewhere that I just can’t stand.
I don’t expect everywhere to appeal to me, and nor should it. What I’m looking for in a destination is almost certainly not the same thing as a family on a two week vacation or a bunch of guys on their gap year.
That said, after a year or so travelling in this region, I’ve been unlucky enough to spend time in a few places that for me have almost no redeeming features whatsoever.
These are those places.
