Ratsada, Mueang Phuket, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket 83000, Thailand
Koh Sirey is less frequently touristed than much of Phuket. It’s technically an island, yet it’s so close to the mainland, separated only by a narrow channel with mangroves. For authentic Thai culture, visit the friendly sea gypsies there, called...

48 ถนน ดีบุกตัดใหม่ ตำบล ตลาดใหญ่ Amphoe Mueang Phuket, Chang Wat Phuket 83000, Thailand

42 ถนนกระบี่ อำเภอเมือง Amphoe Mueang Phuket, Chang Wat Phuket 83000, Thailand

Dương Đông, An Minh, tỉnh Kiên Giang, Vietnam
Prior to going to Phu Quoc, Vietnam my research showed that the "sleepy" fishing village, Duong Dong, was nothing more than a blip you would see between the airport and the island's resort areas. I found this information to be false. Duong Dong...
