It is a busy town, full of life and interesting people and also well placed to visit the mountains on day trips. The view from the top is absolutely brilliant and you can even see some snow-covered peaks.

The weather was cold but not too bad and the food was lovely. We saw the northern lights and went to the blue lagoon which was amazing and hired a car driving to the amazing waterfalls, geysers and mountains.

Da Nang is a lovely place! Very buzzing in the evenings with lots of restaurants and bars dotted around. There is a beautiful beach nearby and lots of sights, including the marble mountains which are only a short ride away. Would highly recommend. 

Auckland, New Zealand.  Imagine a place that looks straight out of a fairytale!

We travelled to Colombo (very busy city), on to Kandy where we visited Sigiriya Rock and Dambulla Caves. Next we went to the stunning Ella mountains and climbed Little Adam’s Peak and walked across the Nine Arch Bridge. We then headed to the beautiful beach towns- Mirissa and Unawatuna. 

Da Nang, Vietnam.  Tired of regular mountains? How about marble peaks?

Beautiful city, did all of the sound of music sites. Weather was very varied - snow and torrential rain on the first day and freezing temperatures but then hot and sunny and needed sun cream on the last day! Be prepared for all! The view from the mountains is stunning. Food everywhere was delicious and all the people we met were very friendly and spoke excellent English !!
