A quiet few days in Si Racha

A small town on the Bangkok to Pattaya highway

Si Racha had a very slow-paced, small-town feel to it and I guess you either like that or you don't. I just couldn't personally imagine living there. Love the park though!


Beyond Hua Hin

A trip to Khao Takiap

I'm not going to lie and say it's the most awesome place you can go, but as a relatively no-hassle trip to and from Bangkok over a weekend (I usually try to stay two nights to make the trip worth it), it's hard to beat.


Bangkok getaways - Lopburi

This month it's Thailand's monkey capital

A town located just a few hours from Bangkok that's worth definitely worth a visit. Lopburi, famous for its ruins and monkeys, lies some 150 kilometres north of the capital and can easily be reached by either bus or train.


The Rose of the North

A short break in Thailand's second city

Chiang Mai is officially one of Asia's most comfortable cities to live in with its relatively clean air, an abundance of good restaurants and helpful friendly locals, but the way you are pestered by vehicle owners from the moment you land at the airport is not one of its more attractive features. Even a gentle stroll down one of Chiang Mai's main roads becomes an endurance test as you find yourself saying 'no thanks' to the tenth taxi driver in as many minutes.


Planning a trip

Scouring the internet and guide-books for the ultimate travel experience.

All I need is a decent hotel for a few days and a plan on how to while away the dalight hours. Is that too much to ask?


Holiday in Thailand

Singing the praises of Hua Hin

I’ve been to Hua Hin a number of times, I think five times in total, and I have to admit I quite like the place. It’s easy to get to and not too far from Bangkok.


Water wars

The infamous Songkhran festival

The Songkran festival, which could also be called Water festival, is the Thai celebration of the Buddhist New Year and officially lasts for three days. Although it seems to be immensely popular with Thais, many foreigners, especially expats, thoroughly dislike it. Why is that?
