The island is mainly known for the full moon party, that’s when thousands of young Farang boys and girls get drunk and crazy on Haad Rin. When it’s …

Yesterday on Valentine’s Day my girlfriend and I wanted to go somewhere for a day trip, and since we didn’t want to do our usual Old-Town-Khaosan tour and see something new, we decided to check out Bang Krachao which is known (or marketed) as the “Green Lung of Bangkok“. And it’s actually an island! Bang …

Koh Phi Phi is probably the most beautiful archipelago in Thailand. If you decide to travel Southern Thailand, you should not miss visiting there – even if it gets more and more crowded with backpackers, young and middle aged couples and also more and more senior travelers or couples spending their honeymoon in the big resorts …

If you have ever been to some islands in this country then you probably know this scenario: You just took a ferry for an hour or two, checked in at your hotel and the first thing you do is to take a look at the beach. Then it often turns out that the nicest beach on …

Koh Lanta Highlights

Last updated: December 20th, 2016 | in Islands | Koh Lanta | Krabi | Southern Thailand | Traveling

Koh Lanta is one of those islands in Thailand that people don’t really know what to expect from it.

Koh Lanta, …

Let me tell you right away that Koh Lanta is not among the better islands for a single male holiday. There are far better choices if you are looking for a great combination of beautiful beaches and girly bars or all sorts of places to meet local Thai ladies. Especially Koh Samui or Phuket have a lot more …

If you are looking for the perfect island in Thailand that has it all – beautiful beaches, a huge choice of both fine Thai and Western restaurants, shopping malls, and overwhelmingly many Farang friendly Thai ladies – then you will find your paradise on Koh Samui. The largest island in the Gulf of Thailand (even …

Koh Samet Highlights

Last updated: September 1st, 2015 | in Central Thailand | Islands | Koh Samet | Traveling

Last month I went on the first trip together with my girlfriend. Since she only got three days off from work I thought it might be just nice to go to Koh Samet for two nights. Hua Hin and Pattaya would have been good options too – distance wise – but then with all the beer …

Koh Samet may not be among your top choices of the ultimate island trips in Thailand. However, if you are looking for a good mix of calmness, uncrowded beaches (with the exception of Hat Sai Kaew that now sees a lot of Chinese package tourists) and a few places to drink and party after sunset – …
