A trip to Phnom Penh makes one appreciate Bangkok

I wasn't all that impressed with Cambodia's capital

I'm sure that like Bangkok, once you get to know the city, it has its own draws and charm - and one certainly can't complain that it's expensive! But it's certainly no Bangkok.

Travels in two SE Asian countries

This column will mainly focus on Vietnam. Would I ever want to work in Vietnam? Absolutely not. There is no way whatsoever anyone could convince me to work in Vietnam. Although the country has a lot of beautiful sights, many interesting tourist destinations and is relatively cheap to live and travel in, not once did I feel the urge to inquire about job opportunities or settle down there.

Not originally intended as a LIBeL column. Too long, only 90% finished. Badly edited - still full of errors - when it appeared in the paper.
