I always forgot how much fun you can have with a Tripod at night. My mother, friend and I were staying at the Dara Dhevi Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Chiang Mai when I took this photograph. This was the most beautiful place I have ever seen, and...

It may not be your first thought as a snack, but the garlic and chili stir-fried critters at Warorot Market in Chiang Mai, Thailand are a delectable treat. A perfect snack to eat with friends, drinking a cold Singha beer. That said, I'd stick with...
Chiang Mai, Thailand
The depth of things to explore in Chiang Mai were beyond what I was able to do within 6 weeks. Hardly venturing out of the 4 walls of the inner city, I road via motor bike just one hour on the outskirts to the most beautiful hidden cove where a...

Wat Traimit Wittayarama, the Royal Temple in Bangkok, houses the Golden Buddha—the world's largest gold seated Buddha. At the top, a series of bells can be rung for good luck. These bells surround a giant metal kettle where you can throw...

Are we there yet? Most travelers going from Thailand to Cambodia take the bus. Unknown to many is the local train, which will take you from Bangkok all the way to the Poipet, Cambodia border. See the Thai countryside, interact with locals, eat...

Every year, on the evening of the full moon of the 12th lunar month, thousands of paper lanterns are launched into the skies above Chiang Mai. At temples all across the city, monks help tourists and residents alike light their lanterns and send...
Khao Phang, Ban Ta Khun District, Surat Thani 84230, Thailand
Waking early to the loud morning chorus of the Thai rainforest is an amazing experience. Whooping gibbons, honking hornbills and buzzing insects compete to fill the air waves with their loud songs to the new day. The floating bungalows on Lake...
หาดท่าน้ำ Tambon Ko Chang, Amphoe Ko Chang, Chang Wat Trat 23170, Thailand
Since a youngster I've been warned that names can be deceiving and when it comes to Lonely Beach this is certainly true. The images conjured up of crystal clear turquoise waters lapping gently at the miles of stretching white sand, not a single...
Nong Han, San Sai District, Chiang Mai, Thailand
One of my favorite festivals in the world is the Loi Krathong / Yi Peng ‘festival of light’ in Thailand. Both occur at the same time and although differing slightly, both represent the cleansing of sins. Yi Peng takes place mainly in Chiang Mai in...

Living in the northern city of Chiang Mai, Thailand I would often end my nights with khanom krok – miniature coconut pancakes. I parked my bike next to the south gate of the old city and bought trays of pancakes from a little old woman who...

The great thing about visiting Chiang Mai during the Loi Krathong Festival is that there are things going on all over the city at all hours of the day - activities are not just confined to the lantern release near the river. Plenty of activity...
Chang Moi, Mueang Chiang Mai District, Chiang Mai, Thailand
I've been to Thailand half a dozen times over the last four years, but until November I had never visited during the Lantern Festival. To be honest, I didn't expect it to be quite as amazing as it actually was - Chiang Mai was transformed for a...

One of the water activities in the islands off Phuket is to feed the tropical fish. Those fish are "spoiled" by all the visitors who feed them bread. When you soak a piece of bread in the water, they come to you within a couple of seconds, and I'm...
