Last updated: June 5th, 2020 | in Isaan | Traveling | Ubon Ratchathani

When you’re cruising through lush rainforest on your motorbike, past small villages and rice paddies and hear small children yelling “Falang!

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 …

For me there are three important things to consider when booking a hotel in Phuket: It should be located within easy walking distance to the beach, have a variety of nightlife spots nearby as well as set in a quiet environment. Especially the latter one is quite unrealistic since if it’s close to the beach …

Chiang Rai is still one of Thailand’s best kept secrets. Even though there are so many fun things to see and do in the country’s northernmost province, the majority of tourists still stick to Chiang Mai when visiting this part of Thailand. Located about 820km north of the capital Bangkok, you may want to choose …
