Here are a few snaps, revolving around food, from our trip to Southeast Asia in 2008. We visited Bangkok, Krabi, Phuket (Thailand), Siam Reap, Sihanoukville, Phnom Penh (Cambodia), Hanoi and Halong Bay (Vietnam).
Wished we had taken more photos of the amazing food we tasted. One of the food highlights was meeting Phuket local Tam (who Craig met after joining in a friendly game of soccer) and being invited to his small restaurant on the private beach of the exclusive Chava Resort. Only problem was that only resort guests are able to access the beach that the restaurant is on, so Plan B was to spend the best part of an hour scrambling over rocks and cliffs along the coast. When we finally emerged from around the corner, Tam was very happy and surprised to see us and cooked us one of the best green chicken curries we’ve tasted.
Other food highlights were experiencing the lively markets in Hanoi (from live toads, to butchering meat on the dirty curb, to avoiding the countless scooters whizzing past, to the smells and colours of unknown fruits, spices and ‘ other things’ ).
