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.


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.

Off the tourist track in Laos

Just one man, a motorcycle and the open road

About a year ago, I spent two weeks driving a motorbike through the Bolaven Plateau in southern Laos. I can honestly say it was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in Southeast Asia


Why had no one told me about Chantaburi?

It's clean and it's green. Please don't miss it.

The only time I'd ever been to Chantaburi Province was over twenty years ago, when an Indian friend (a gemstone dealer by profession) took me down there to see one of the famous open-air gemstone markets. And although it was an interesting experience at the time, walking around on a muddy scrap of land, gawping at gemstone stalls, was still the only image that came to mind whenever Chantaburi was mentioned to me - until last weekend of course, when I came away with a completely different point of view.
