Koh Lanta Highlights

Last updated: June 12th, 2018 | 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. Sure I’m talking about first time visitors who have already visited places like Koh Samui or Koh Chang and are then curious to discover more of the “authentic Thailand” away from the mass tourism. 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 …

There are these kind of places that you just have to visit and check off our list, even though you already know they have gotten really touristic and have lost a lot of its original charm and character. The Similan Islands in Phang Nga are the perfect example for that, for that they are being …

Koh Samui Highlights

Last updated: June 19th, 2018 | in Islands | Koh Samui | Southern Thailand | Surat Thani | Traveling

What makes Koh Samui the most visited island in Thailand after Phuket? It’s probably the great mix of nice beaches, huge range of hotel choices from cheap backpacker dorms with shared bathroom to five star luxury resorts with private beach, fine restaurants with both Thai and Western dishes, modern shopping malls, a bustling nightlife and …

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: June 19th, 2018 | 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 – …

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 …

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 …
