5.) Hoi An, Vietnam
Hoi An was definitely our favourite stop in Vietnam, and deserves it's place as number 5 in our favourite places due to it's amazing, well-priced eateries, beautifully romantic river-side setting, complete with cute hanging lanterns, and it's excellent market. We also stayed at a fantastic homestay, which added to the excellent time we had here.

4.) Chiang Mai, Thailand
The incredible Elephant Nature Park, which was easily a highlight of our trip so far, definitely helped put Chiang Mai on the list. However the town itself is really lovely, and has so much culture and charm. The fantastic weekend walking street markets helped get it to 4th place too!

3.)Beijing (The Great Wall of China)
Beijing itself we found nothing to write home about but we couldn't compile this list and not include our visit to The Great Wall of China. It was simply amazing in every way; from the stunning views it afforded, to the shear experience of climbing it. My complete blog on The Great Wall:
2.) Ao Nang/Railay, Thailand
Without a doubt some of the most beautiful, breathtaking scenery we've ever seen was here. Crystal clear, warm water and amazingly soft sand is what has given Ao Nang and Railay peninsula the number two spot!

1.) Yangshuo, China
Yangshuo is simply amazing. From the scenery I cannot use words to describe, to the authentically-Chinese cobble-pathed town, to the gorgeous countryside, to the endless list of things to do... And the list could go on.
