When I travel on my own, I prefer to stay at local B&Bs or smaller boutique hotels, rather than cookie-cutter commercial hotel chains. It’s one of the reasons I decided to sign up for GranTourismo’s Culinary Tour of Cambodia – because they promised accommodation at local-owned and operated boutique hotels like Templation, in Siem Reap.
Tucked around the corner from Chong Nonsi BTS in Bangkok’s bustling Silom district, sits chic Le Du Restaurant + Wine Bar, serving modern Thai cuisine. I was only visiting Bangkok for a couple of days, and Le Du was first on my list of places to eat at.
A handful of years ago, I spent a rainy 48 hours in picturesque Vienna, the City of Music. Famous for its Imperial palaces, museums, galleries, architecture and monuments; Vienna could be considered a museum in itself.
In March of this year, I was invited to spend some time at up in the North, at Corbett Riverside Resort. Nestled in the sub-Himalayan geographical belt, Corbett National Park has a wealth of flora and fauna that attract wildlife lovers from across the world.
