Nightlife & Thai Girls in Trat

Last updated: February 5th, 2016 | 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 don’t go to Koh Kood for long and hard partying but rather for experiencing one of Thailand’s last unspoilt islands.

How often I was told by backpackers how developed it is by now and that it lost a lot of its charm and laid back character compared to¬†five or ten years ago. They complained that especially on White Sand Beach, the island’s most developed beach, it’s …

Located on Koh Chang’s most popular and maybe also most beautiful beach, the German run Koh Chang Top Resort has been my choice during my recent visit to Thailand’s second largest island.
