Why I Love 7-Eleven in Thailand

If you’ve lived in or traveled around Asia, chances are, you’ve completely fallen in love with the convenience stores, particularly 7-Eleven. Sure, we have these stores in the US, but they can’t compare with what you’ll find in Japan, Thailand, or elsewhere across Asia. Here, convenience stores are a major part of life, and the expat or traveler’s best friend. Don’t believe me? After living abroad as an expat for six years, here are the reasons that I think 7-Elevens in Thailand are amazing. Read on:

Exploring the Han River Front - Da Nang, Vietnam

Da Nang is a city of just over 1 million, which sits on the coast and is cut in half by the Han River. Many of the city’s most attractive spots (nicest hotels, most scenic restaurants) are located along the Han River Front area. The river is spanned by several modern and unique bridges, and is especially beautiful to visit at night, when the bridges are lit up in an impressive display of color.

Da Nang, Vietnam is home to some of Vietnam’s most interesting museums. I’ve chosen three of the best museums in the city.

Sleepless in Laos: The Luang Prabang Night Market

Being a night owl may not match with the lifestyle in Luang Prabang. The city wakes up early, and things tend to close down when the sky grows dark. While there is some night life in the more touristy bars and clubs, in general, Luang Prabang is a quiet and sleepy city, especially once the sun goes down. Luang Prabang is considered to be one of the most charming and peaceful cities in Southeast Asia.

Exploring Luang Prabang's Morning Market

The Luang Prabang Morning Market comes alive before the sun rises. After spending a cool, fresh morning experiencing a Lao alms-giving ceremony, head to the morning market to buy some of the freshest, healthiest, and most delicious produce in the city. You have to wake up early to experience the Morning Market, but it’s one of the coolest local experiences that you really shouldn’t miss when traveling to the city.

What to Eat and Drink in Macau

While Macau may be better known for its casinos than anything else, a visitor shouldn’t overlook the excellent cuisine that the city has to offer. Macanese cuisine is deeply steeped in the city’s history, and is influenced by both its traditional Chinese and colonial Portuguese past. Some of Macau’s best dishes can be found in its street food; some of the best food can sometimes be found in the most unassuming of local food stalls!
