Thanks RamG, I've since learnt from other market visits that it's rambutan and discovered it is very tasty!

Halong Bay and Chiang Mai
Hi Rae, thanks for comment! Halong Bay certainly is worth the trip and will blog about it shortly. I loved Chiang Mai, very laid back especially compared to here, have a great time there and go to Love at First Bite if you're a cake fan!

Halong Bay
Halong Bay is well worth the visit, especially if you get good weather - hope you enjoy it. We just left Vietnam and we're revelling in the horn free traffic of Chiang Mai! Happy travels, Rae

We enjoyed your blog! We are in Hoi An at the moment, travelling from Hanoi to Saigon, and recognised most of the things you described. The markets are great!. Ha Long Bay is magical. Enjoy the rest of your trip. Tim and paula

S-21 prison
Hi Ian, thanks for your comment and questions. I think the electric wire lashing was using live wires to give electric shocks to prisoners during interrogation. The regime was extremely brutal as that list of rules implies, particularly banning prisoners from crying out or waving to family etc. Many of the prisoners were there because they were suspected of plotting against Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. Often family members were tortured and killed as well because of association with a suspect. Very young children were killed because the Khmer Rouge feared they would want revenge in later life for their parents' deaths.

Rules for prisoners at Security Prison 21

Electric Wire?
What is this electric wire lashing? That sounds pretty brutal--and to prohibit prisoners from crying out in pain during electric lashes? That sounds pretty bad. What are the prisoners here for?

Had you seen my blog before going, you would have picked many more temple names/safe places to eat and 'to do' things... :) Cambodia is awesome and nostalgic. We spent so many hours sitting at-top the angkor 3rd floor and looking at the ruins.. cute pics ! byee

Chiang Mai great for kids
Hi Aries and Rinka, I think Chiang Mai would be great for kids, plenty of families staying at Imm Eco Hotel where we stayed, definitely laid back. Thanks for info on fruits, still trying to learn and taste all these new foods out here, but having great fun trying!

Very jealous (esp of cakes!)

Me and my wife have been to Bangkok twice, we wanted to go back to Thailand but this time with our 1 and 2 year olds. Your blog made me feel like Chiang Mai is a very laid back , relaxing and maybe good vacation spot for parents with kids, am I right? And Im sorry, but I think the red spiky fruit is not lychee, I think thats rambutan, we have that too in the Philippines. Yes, its better tasting and sweeter than lychees.

I hope before you leave Thailand you try the best dessert in the world...mangoes and sticky rice...kow neo and mamuang.

My favorite gorilla group
Hi, from Austria! Thanks for story and photos! Visited Hirwa Group in June 2009. I´m often thinking if they are doing well. Love those unbelieveable creatures so much and left a part of my heart in this place of the world. The name of the silverback is MUNINYA. Came back this year in June, but visited other groups (Susa and Nyakagezi in Mgahinga NP, Uganda). Was also great. If you want me to send some photos (made a lot) just tell me your mail. Kind regards, Helmut
