THE HAWAII & ASIA SERIES PT9
BANGLADESH – DUBAI – BAHRAIN – QATAR – KUWAIT – ARMENIA – GEORGIA – KAZAKH – TAJIKI – KYRGYZ
After leaving Hawaii I went back to the Philippines, that place will draw me back again and again! But because I was always busy I forgot about my journal so the only think I have is photos, which might spark a few memories but never as much my journal would.
I WAS IMPRESSED WITH BANGLADESH
I decided to city hop a few of my next destinations, as I knew I would return to most so I just wanted to get a flavour.
WHERE IS BANGLADESH?
Bangladesh, The Persian Gulf, The Caucasus & The Stans
My first stop was Bangladesh where I explored the city of Dhaka and was pleasantly surprised. It was nowhere near as chaotic as I had expected after having explored the streets of India. As with the rest of this region, people were very friendly and I always felt safe aimlessly walking around, something I enjoy doing in Asia.
GEORGIA – ARMENIA
This brought about the biggest shock of this region. Armenia was just ok but a few years later I would learn than the beauty of Armenia is outside of Yerevan. Tbilisi however was a huge shock, one of the nicest old towns I have visited and certainly top 5 cheapest destinations so far. For such a small city there was still quite a lot to see and do, hike up to Narikala Fortress, check out the Cathedral, or explore the old town. Can’t wait to return again!
KAZAKH – TAJIKI – KYRGYZ
Although the Stans cover such a vast area, it remains one of the least visited regions in the world. I always wanted to do the Pamir Highway but it’s a 2 week journey and one I will have to do on my return.
Now I see why Botswana is considered the best place to do a safari – Read the reflection post here!
