Travels to Vietnam and Cambodia
Laney Harman joined the Safari team last year as an intern working in our graphics department. She very quickly became a very valued and integral part of the team. After a super busy Christmas, Laney headed to Vietnam and Cambodia for a well-deserved break. She returned with a collection of wonderful stories and images-some of which she is sharing with us here...
Images of bikes piled impossibly high with all manner of livestock and miscellaneous goods are nothing new, but I couldn't resist photographing this bright bicycle of blooms.
Although overrun by tourists, it's still possible to capture moments of relative solitude in Ha Long Bay.

With the farmers out working in the rice fields during the day, the animals are often left to rule the roost.
Sometimes described as an inland Ha Long Bay, Trang An in Ninh Binh Province is best explored by rowboat, where the river winds through limestone caves and under thick tree canopies.
Vietnam seems to be a contrast between many people rushing and many people waiting.
Those keen enough to brave the 4.30am wake-up for sunrise at Angkor Wat are rewarded with scenes like this; ancient stone pillars casting long shadows between beams of morning light.

Tender moments spent making a new friend at Angkor Wat. I thought he was unwell as he rolled onto his side, but it turns out he just wanted a pat. Photo: Dan Waterman
