A day out in Suphanburi

A town that really does have an off-the-beaten-track feel

It's a comfortable 90-minute drive north from Bangkok and seemed to have plenty to offer even the most demanding day-tripper. Perhaps when you are flanked by tourism heavyweights like Ayutthaya and Kanchanaburi, it's difficult to get a look in?

My take on dual pricing in Thailand

There are some battles you will never win

Few aspects of living in Thailand seem to grind a long term expat's gears quite like the dual pricing system.


The slow train to Ayuthaya

A day in Thailand's old capital

I'm not sure where I got the inspiration from but I had a sudden urge to take a train in Thailand - nothing too ambitious or demanding, just a stress-free couple of hours from Bangkok to somewhere else. That would do nicely.


Missionary position

Finding salvation on Bangkok's MRT

I told the young man I would give God some very serious thought and implored him to keep up the good work. One powerful handshake later and he disappeared into the crowd of commuters to select another victim.


Taking an overnight train in Thailand

Or should that be riding the rolling coffin?

I've been on many trains in Europe of varying price points, but even the lowest class trains I saw in Italy are a more pleasant experience than this "express" train. I can wholeheartedly say that I'll never do an overnight train in Thailand again.


A long weekend in Chantaburi

A trip to one of Thailand's best kept secrets

About four months ago, I wrote a blog about my first ever visit to Chantaburi province but we were left with little time to explore the area, save for a small stretch of the coastline. However, we loved what we saw. We promised ourselves we would return on our own - just the two of us, the car and the open road - at the very first opportunity.


Are you a social butterfly travelling alone?

Embrace the opportunities that solo travel presents

Some people are completely happy with their own company, so doing things alone isn't even a worthy topic of conversation for them. I aspire to be one of those people. But right now, I'm someone who enjoys the company of others - especially while traveling.


The state of the state railway

It's a shame that such a great mode of transportation isn't in better hands

By the time we rolled into Hualamphong Station (a wonderful station, for the record) two hours late we were so happy that we kind of forgot about the sleepless night and just laughed about it. And that's what I'm doing now, writing semi-seriously about some minor issues on a train in a developing country.


Phuket: it's paradise on earth

You guys who live there don't know how lucky you are

There are beautiful beaches, marinas, rivers, mountains, temples, and wildlife galore to see and enjoy. I would say Phuket has a little bit of everything for people of all tastes. Sure, it has its pitfalls, and it may be a bit more expensive than Bangkok, but to me... Phuket is worth every penny.
