Na Phra Lan Rd, Khwaeng Phra Borom Maha Ratchawang, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Thailand
I had been wandering around the Grand Palace in Bangkok for quite some time in the sweltering heat. I had passed various tour groups and fellow travelers, a few unruly children, and a handful of vendors. Just as the heat was starting to get to me,...
Thanon Khao San, Khwaeng Talat Yot, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Thailand
Busy day and night, Khao San Road is a backpacker haven with a down-and-dirty image. But it has evolved into a bustling market and nightlife destination for trendy residents and travelers. By day, you’ll find it great for all things...
1055 Si Lom, Khwaeng Silom, Khet Bang Rak, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10500, Thailand
There are rumours the Sirocco bar has been somewhat ruined since some of Hangover 2 was filmed here. This may well be true as drink prices have gone up (but still remain similar to other rooftop bars), and the clientèle may not be quite as high...
1055 State Tower Si Lom, Khwaeng Silom, Khet Bang Rak, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10500, Thailand

I am happy to have finally found the address for the Ka-Long Restaurant after many unsuccessful searches. This restaurant is an old-school Thai restaurant set on the busy Chao Praya River and there’s no mistaking its authenticity. The spices are...
Ko Kret, Pak Kret District, Nonthaburi 11120, Thailand
Koh Kret is a small island just outside of Bangkok located in the Chao Phraya River. A taxi (about an hour from Silom) will take you to the boat where it is literally a 2 minute boat ride across the river. Koh Kret is a community of Mon people and...
Ko Samui, Ko Samui District, Surat Thani, Thailand
Earlier this year, I spent three luxurious weeks on the beautiful Thai island of Koh Samui. I booked with Tropical Sky, and have included their link below as I was so impressed with their service. After enduring almost twenty-four hours on flights...
Haad Tien, Koh Phangan, อำเภอ เกาะพะงัน สุราษฎร์ธานี 84280, Thailand
When I came upon this scene on the Haad Tien beach on Koh Phangan, I immediately thought of The Girl From Ipanema, even though we were hundreds of miles away from the crowded beaches of Rio, were in fact on a quiet beach owned by The Sanctuary, a...
