446/13 หมู่ที่ 1 โครงการหมู่บ้านอาซาญ่า ถ.แม่ริม-สะเมิง (สายเก่า) ต.ริมใต้ อ.แม่ริม จ. เชียงใหม่ 50180 Tambon Rim Tai, Amphoe Mae Rim, Chang Wat Chiang Mai 50180, Thailand
A hotel is usually a gateway to your travel destination, but when the hotel is the Azaya Villas, you may find yourself lacking the motivation you need to lock the door behind you. At least that's how I felt after walking through the gates at Azaya...
135/9 Charoen Prathet Rd, ตำบล ช้างคลาน อำเภ เมืองเชียงใหม่ Chang Wat Chiang Mai 50100, Thailand
I had no idea how badly I wanted to spend the night in teak mansion until I arrived in Chiang Mai. The Ping Nakara is, by and large, Chiang Mai's most sensational boutique hotel, but not in trendy hipster mustache boutique way. Ping Nakara is...
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,...
90/3 Sridonchai Rd, Tambon Chang Khlan, Amphoe Mueang Chiang Mai, Chang Wat Chiang Mai 50100, Thailand
If you know me at all you know that I'm not much of a backpacker. Don't get me wrong - I love hiking, camping, trekking, and the outdoors more than most people. What I don't dig is sitting around ramshackle guesthouses with 20-something tourists...
Su Thep, Mueang Chiang Mai District, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Northern Thailand really is at it’s best during the ‘green season’. Imagine serene countryside surrounded by rolling rainforest-covered hills, hidden waterfalls, expansive fields, clear fresh air and birdsong. Between the provinces of Nan and...
102/9 หมู่ที่ 3 Laem-Set Rd, Tambon Na Mueang, Amphoe Ko Samui, Chang Wat Surat Thani 84140, Thailand
Thailand’s pioneering wellness retreat is known for its 3- to 14-day programs that address everything from burnout to sleep issues. The resort celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2015 by adding a 25-meter lap pool, a state-of-the-art gym, and a new...
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...
Pa Yup Nai, Wang Chan District, Rayong, Thailand
Accompany elephants as they make their way to a “retirement” park in Northern Thailand after careers in trekking camps. The project is an attempt both to give the elephants a more pleasant, natural life andto rebuild the bonds between the animals...
209/2 Sridom, ซอย ร่วมชัย อำเภอ แม่แตง เชียงใหม่ 50100, Thailand
Ko Samui, Ko Samui District, Surat Thani, Thailand
I spent a month on the island of Ko Samui in Thailand doing a yoga teacher training. The retreat center is called Yoga Thailand (or Samahita) and it's owned and run by Paul Dallaghan. There's also a spa and detox center along with amazing food, a...
28/8 Moo 4, Sakoo, Thalang, ภูเก็ต 83110, Thailand
Choose from multiple restaurants on the beach and drink/eat the best Thai and Seafood you will ever have and it is cheap! It was right down the street from our awesome hotel Andaman which had its only private beach and was super reasonable! Eat...
Doi Mae Salong, Mae Salong Nok, Mae Fa Luang District, Chiang Rai 57110, Thailand
My friends and I stayed in a small guesthouse in the Chinese settlement called Mae Salong in northern Thailand in the Chiang Rai province. We used that as our base for a 2 day trek to visit the local hill tribes. We stayed for one night in Mae...
50/1 Rachadamnoen Rd, ตำบล ศรีภูมิ อำเภอ เมืองเชียงใหม่ Chang Wat Chiang Mai 50200, Thailand
Even though it’s located in the center of town, Tamarind Village is still quiet, has excellent service, and is reasonably priced. The property has 42 rooms and three suites, as well as a very nice spa. The staff are happy to arrange...
Boek Phrai, Chom Bueng District, Ratchaburi 70150, Thailand
"NO ELECTRICITY in the heat of Thailand? Are you crazy?" Yes, this super eco friendly hotel operates without the use of electricity. It's snugged deep inside the luscious green mountain on River Kwai in Kanchanaburi province. I was scared of the...
Surin Beach, Choeng Thale, Thalang District, Phuket 83110, Thailand
We're a young family, and weren't up for the craziness of Patong. But we were keen to experience the warmth and white beaches of Phuket, Thailand - without the hype. Surin Beach, just north of Patong, was perfect. A few resorts, cafes and Thai...
Kasem Mai 3 Alley, Tambon Nong Han, Amphoe San Sai, Chang Wat Chiang Mai 50290, Thailand
Recently stayed at this brand new resort just North of Chiang Mai. The resort is set in a teak forest - ideal for relaxing on the grounds. It is also well located for excursions to many of the sights in and around Chiang Mai. The resort facilities...
Khao Phang, Ban Ta Khun District, Surat Thani 84230, Thailand
With no electricity, running water or communications of any kind this floating camp is completely off the grid. This is a remote and dramatic landscape created by a dam and dominated by limestone up-thrusts and virgin forest. The only...
106/46 Moo 3, Surin Beach Road, ตำบล เชิงทะเล thalang, ภูเก็ต 83110, Thailand
One of my favourite boutique hotels anywhere in the world, the contemporary, stylish and sophisticated Twin Palms Hotel and Spa on Surin Beach in Phuket, Thailand is worth going out of your way to find. The architecture is distinctly thai with...
Cheow Lan Lake, Khao Phang, Ban Ta Khun District, Surat Thani 84230, Thailand
This was the view outside my floating tent on Cheow Lan Lake. Khao Sok park is a relatively undiscovered bit of Southern Thailand. Stay in a floating tent, hike in the rainforest, kayak around the lake for a view of gibbons and monkeys swinging...
