FAQs Answered By a Woman Traveler: Traveling Solo Around Southeast Asia

Hi everyone!

So, in case you didn’t know, I’m finally back to Vietnam after 3 years. It was the first country that I visited as a solo traveler.

And while this time I kinda get used to doing everything alone when I travel, I understand as someone who comes from Southeast Asia region, some people just ask you a lot of questions about your journey.

Some ask questions out of curiosity, some do it because they’re inspired to do it too, while the other one has a little concern about the idea of you traveling alone. And that’s totally fine with me. After all, not everyone has their privilege to experience solo traveling, I guess?

Now that I’m in Chau Doc, I’ve got some spare time to write as I’ll be on my way to Ha Tien tomorrow, and then continue my journey crossing the border to Cambodia the next day.

This time, I’ll share with you some questions frequently asked about traveling solo in Southeast Asia. The questions that I often get asked, especially as a woman traveling alone around the region.

Review and Hit-or-Miss: Herborist Olive Series

It’s been a while since the last time I posted something in the beauty section of this blog. Nothing personal, it’s just I’ve come to realize that I may come across “suck” as a beauty blogger, so it really discouraged me to write something related to beauty products. Ironically though, some of my beauty posts rank fairly high so I suppose it’s worth another try to write some more.

This time, I’ll talk about one of the well-known Indonesian beauty brands that you may find in some souvenir shops in Bali: Herborist.

Yep, if you got any chance to travel around Bali and stop by some souvenir shops there, you could easily find some beauty products from body lotion, bath salt and even body scrubs from various brands. Herborist is one of them.

Other than Herborist, you’d also find other brands like Bali Ratih, Bali Alus, and many other different brands that might attract your lust to pamper yourself.

Grand Kuta Hotel & Residence: Home Away From Home for Your Family Holiday in Bali

Hi everyone!

Tonight, I got pissed as Arsenal vs Chelsea game just finished, and the Gunners played so well only to get robbed in the end. I swear I could never forgive both Jorginho and Pawson for this game… Ever.

Anyway, even before the match started I was already prepared to write a review of the last accommodation where I was staying with my family in Bali. This post will also be the last post I have for my Bali series. I mean, I’m not planning to go back to Bali anytime soon, but who knows? Maybe I will post some more about it some time in the future. Never say never.

As I mentioned, in this post I’ll be sharing a review of the last place I stayed in Bali. It’s in Kuta area, and while Kuta might lose its popularity as it has become super touristy… The accommodation that I stayed in was actually the great one that I’d totally recommend for anyone traveling to Bali with their family.

It’s Grand Kuta Hotel & Residence, and here’s my review!

Some Must-Visit Places in Bali (or Are They, Really?)

I gotta admit, there were a lot of distractions even though I was planning to write this post yesterday. From the technical reason of my computer being shitty, to the fact that I got too lazy to edit the pics. But anyway, 2020 is around the corner and procrastination is something that I’m trying to avoid next year. Or so I said. 😛

So, after reviewing Penida LaCasa Cottage and sharing with you how much I had fun on Nusa Penida… I’m going to write about the must-visit places in Bali, according to a lot of travelers coming to the island.

As you probably know already, it was my first time in Bali so I tried to visit all the main tourist destinations most people would suggest to me when it comes to the island. I didn’t have time to visit all the places, but I managed to stop by some must-visit tourist destinations there so I figure that maybe I should leave my two cents here.

Are they really must-visit places in Bali? Let’s see!
