Ang Thong, Ko Samui District, Surat Thani, Thailand
It's quite a trek to the viewpoint at Ko Wua Talab, but the views out over Mu Ko Angthong National Marine park are worth the climb. It certainly doesn't feel worth it while you're scrambling over razor-sharp rocks that threaten to snap your ankles...
206/2 หมู่ที่ 5 Na Kluea 12 Alley, ตำบล นาเกลือ Amphoe Bang Lamung, Chang Wat Chon Buri 20150, Thailand
In all honesty in my opinion the only thing worth seeing and going to Pattaya for. Excerpt from Wikipedia "Sanctuary of Truth also called Wang Boran and Prasat Mai)....The sanctuary is an all-wood building filled with sculptures based on...
Ko Phi Phi Don, Ao Nang, Mueang Krabi District, Krabi, Thailand
This is where they shot the movie "The Beach." Gorgeous white sand beach and turquoise water, exactly as advertised. I read "The Beach" while I traveled around Thailand, which I would recommend to anyone who likes travel narratives and dreams of...
Tapae Road, 119/9 1096 อำเภอ แม่ริม เชียงใหม่ 50100, Thailand
About 20 minutes outside of Chiang Mai lies the Maesa Elephant camp. Here you can see elephants bathing in the Maesa river with their mahouts (trainers), visit with baby elephants in the nursery, watch the elephants perform a series of tricks-...

While there’s no shortage of spectacular temples in Thailand – or Asia for that matter – one of my absolute favorites is without doubt the distinctive Wat Rong Khun. Perhaps better known by the name ‘The White...

The islands of Southern Thailand may be one of the most affordable locations to get SCUBA certified and are undoubtedly one of the most beautiful locations to do so as well. I highly recommend Big Blue Diving on Koh Tao for certifications or fun...
51/1 หมู่ที่ 7 ถนน แม่ริม - สะเมิง Rim Tai, Amphoe Mae Rim, Chang Wat Chiang Mai 50180, Thailand
Located 11 miles outside of Chiang Mai, Tiger Kingdom is a great day trip where you can play, pet and take photos of tigers. There is no fee to enter the park, but if you wish to enter the enclosure with a trainer for 15 minutes at a time, you pay...
Tha Yu, Takua Thung District, Phang-nga, Thailand
This was taken on a longtail boat heading out from Koh Yao Noi island to kayak around a few karst islands in PhangNga Bay. Early in the morning and during sunset the many islands that dramatically erupt out of the sea are silhouetted in an ombre...
Ko Lanta Yai, Ko Lanta District, Krabi, Thailand
Here's a list of things I love about Koh Lanta: - rocks. - waves. - green curry. - how warm Beer Chang still tastes decent. - sand. - sunshine. - sunsets. Sunsets on Klong Hin Beach are a thing of beauty, indeed. And there's a very good chance,...
If you visit Phuket, then it's very worthwhile to also visit Phang Nga Bay. The bay is full of wonderful Limestone monoliths towering up to 300 metres above the sea. The only way to properly see these (that is if you don't own a helicopter?) is to...
Don Kaeo, Mae Rim District, Chiang Mai, Thailand
So close to Chiang Mai and yet a million miles from the dread-locked backpacker posse fighting to stay on their raft whilst carrying an elephant with a Hmong villager clinging onto their ankle for dear life... this place is the perfect retreat for...
Ko Pha Ngan, Ko Pha-ngan District, Surat Thani 84280, Thailand
Yes, I've been to paradise. From what I've seen of the world so far, I would have to say that Thailand still has places that are a little bit of paradise on earth. One of them is in the Gulf of Thailand, an island called Koh Phangan. The Sanctuary...
