Did you know that Koh Lanta is the second largest island in Thailand (after Phuket)? Yes, it’s larger than more famous places like Koh Chang or even Koh Samui, yet still not nearly as much visited. But okay, there is a reason for that: The beaches are rather average and there aren’t huge waterfalls like on …

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: 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.

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.

The problem with a lot of hotels in Phuket is that they allow you to bring in girls and all sorts of female prostitutes, but no ladyboys. You can argue whether that’s fair or not, discriminating or not, but that’s just how it is here. The majority of the hotel managers has that kind of “no …

I have already published several posts on things to do at day and night as well as where to meet Thai …

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 their original charm and character. The Similan Islands in Phang Nga are the perfect example for that, for that they are being …

Khao Lak is one of the most popular family retreats in Thailand and therefore the nightlife is completely different to Phuket some 80km further down south: Less bars, less massage salons, less mongers, less hookers. I wasn’t even planning to visit there this year until my sister told me that she and her husband had booked …

Phang Nga & Khao Lak Highlights

Last updated: September 12th, 2018 | in Khao Lak | Phang Nga | Southern Thailand | Traveling

Relatively few people take a trip to Phuket’s neighboring beach town of Khao Lak – and even fewer visit the capital town of the same province: Phang Nga. I have been to both places last month and in today’s post I’ll try to show you how beautiful it is there so that next time you may …
