Destination: Koh Samui, Thailand I'm going to get on a boat and go out into the sea and go snorkeling at the Ang Thong Marine national park! Then I'm going to lie on the beach, have a picnic lunch, and stare at the sky.
Floating markets, across Asia. From Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam you have easy access to a nearby spectacular market, where you can soak up the lively atmosphere and Vietnamese folk music whilst picking yourself up some fresh river produce and fish.
