The kingdom of noise

One a suggestion I always have for people traveling to South Asia or the fast developing countries in South East Asia is to check the review website for any mention of nearby constructions when you book a hotel. Cities in Vitnam, India, Myanmar, Indonesia and Cambodia are constantly under construction and the crew often ignores cerfew hours. Besides that if you are going to be spending any time traveling in this region, perhaps the most valuable gadget is a noise cancellation headphones. My new favourite is the Sony WH-1000XM3. This device has saved my sanity not only in planes and trains but also cities with loudspeakers blaring or indoor spaces with loud music.
