Cambodia's Sihanoukville may top the backpackers' hitlist, but it's what lies offshore that's caught our eye. Song Saa Private Island hotel in the Koh Rong Islands is an eco-luxe escape spread over a pair of pristine isles, with thatch and stone villas dotted among the jungle canopy or lolling above the sea. Being green-minded has never been so glamorous.
Hue was once Vietnam’s capital and the seat of the Nguyen Dynasty from 1802 to 1945. Rich in history and monuments, the city itself is a work in progress with little choice of restaurants and hotels. While I didn’t fall in love with the city, I was impressed by the sights it had to offer. As the former home to the last emperor of Vietnam, there are plenty worth seeing.
