Best of South East Asia

And now it's the fun part, the awards ceremony! We made some predictions as we flew out of Ireland as to what places we thought we'd enjoy the most. And as we flew into Hong Kong, we decided what the winners actually were. So, here are the top three places in each category!

Best City

3rd: Battambang

2nd: Koh Tao

1st: Bagan

Best Country

3rd: Thailand

2nd: Cambodia

1st: Myanmar

Best Food & Drink

3rd: Bangkok

2nd: Bagan

1st: Koh Tao

 Best Accommodation

3rd: Golden Mango - Siem Reap

2nd: Rikitikitavi - Kampot

1st: Kumudara - Bagan

Best Cultural Experience

3rd: Singapore

2nd: Cambodia

1st: Myanmar

Best Temple

3rd: Phnom Banan - Battambang

2nd: Ta Prohm - Siem Reap

1st: Pyathada Paya - Bagan

Best Tourist Activity

3rd: Boat from Battambang to Siem Reap

2nd: Circular train - Yangon

1st: Koh Nang Yuan - Koh Tao

 Nicest People

3rd: Thailand

2nd: Cambodia

1st: Myanmar

So there you have it, an overwhelming victory for Myanmar, winning 6 out of the 8 categories, and finishing 2nd in the other two! Not bad seeing as we actually only spent 4 days there. Definitely a place we'll be visiting again.

We also did a "Worst of" list, but we can't actually find it... I'm sure you can fill in the blanks yourself though, Phuket, Phuket, Phuket...
