Pattaya is, along with Bangkok, the best place in Thailand to play 8 ball pool table both with nice and young Thai ladies as well as foreign tourists and expats. It’s not always easy to make foreign friends in Thailand but I think it’s a great way to meet new people by playing pool. And …

There are thousands of temples in Thailand and a lot of them just look very similar to each other with the typical two or three tiers on the roof. But what they started to built up in 1981 at the very northern tip of the Pattaya bay is simply one of the most impressive Thai …

There are several Buddhist holidays in Thailand and the Macha Bucha Day in February is one of them. Most foreigners are quite unfamiliar with this tradition and what it is all about, many don’t even know that it exists and are surprised why the offices are closed and countless of people walking around the temples …

I love exploring off the beaten path and non-touristic places in Thailand. Bangkok has so many interesting sites within less than a one hour drive from downtown, and Phutthamonthon park is one of them. Located about 40km west of central Bangkok in the Nakhon Pathom province, the park hold’s a beautiful black-colored free-standing Buddha statue …

The Trat province has so much to offer. There is the island paradise of Koh Chang with lots of quiet and unspoiled neighbor islands like Koh Mak & Koh Kood and even the fairly small province capital has its own charm that makes travelers stay longer than they’re planning to. You can find my post about the best …

Nightlife & Thai Girls in Trat

Last updated: December 30th, 2017 | in Central Thailand | Nightlife | Thai Girls | Trat

While Trat isn’t of the most exciting towns in Thailand, there are quite a few reasons why a lot of people (including me) traveling to or from the Koh Chang Archipelago still spend more time than they plan to in the province capital of the same name. I have already written about the best things …

Trat Highlights

Last updated: February 5th, 2016 | in Central Thailand | Trat | Traveling

You might think of Trat as an ordinary province capital town with a few nice temples, cheap market shopping and a low pace of life. While this is true, there is a lot more to central Thailand’s eastern-most province that made me stay more than just one night while on my way to and from …

You don’t go to Koh Kood for long and hard partying but rather for experiencing one of Thailand’s last unspoiled islands. With a population of only about 2,000 people, this is actually the district (amphoe) with the lowest population of the country. This means the infrastructure here is more than basic, there is no public …

The Koh Chang Archipelago is a true island hopping paradise. There are 54 islands in total and while there are enough things to do in Koh Chang alone for a couple of weeks or more, I’m glad that I have taken the ferry to explore two of the less developed islands last month: Koh Mak …

Koh Chang has a lot more to offer than beautiful beaches and tropical rainforest. The nightlife on Thailand’s second largest island is wild, diverse and thriving. There isn’t anything to do on the island’s quiet and unspectacular east coast (apart from some remote five star resorts), so if you are out exploring this part of …

Yesterday I visited Nakhon Pathom, one of Bangkok’s neighbour provinces 64km west of the capital. It wasn’t just for checking off another one of Thailand’s 76 provinces but this town is interesting for two reasons: Nakhon Pathom is claimed to be the country’s oldest settlement. The town’s name derives from the Pali „Nagara Pathama“ which …
