Krabi Beach Guide

On a road trip this year, I went to the south of Thailand from Bangkok to Krabi. Needless to say, I stopped at many beautiful beaches along the way. This blog focuses only on the ones I visited in Krabi, but I plan to update it once I go to the others in the area,…

Aonang Phu Petra Resort, Krabi

With a beautiful mountain as a backdrop and white sandy beaches nearby to visit, this resort is a great choice for you. The Villa The Majestic Suite Poolside Villa (122) in which I stayed at for this visit is spacious and well laid out. The bed is huge and the amount of attention that went…

Friendly Hotel, Krabi

A budget hotel with a swimming pool and a walk away from Ao Nam Mao Beach in Krabi. I chose this hotel just for the night, so there wasn’t much thought that went into choosing it, but I will say that I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. The hotel is brand new and the rooms…

For those looking to take a city break or just need some time to relax and do nothing while being surrounded by nature – this is the place for you! I visited this mountain resort in February of 2019, so there was still a bit of a chill in the air in the mornings, but…

Chiang Rai’s ‘Big Buddha’, Wat Huay Pla Kang

As my flight was about to land at Chiang Rai’s airport, I spotted what I assumed was a Big Buddha statue. Later on I learnt that it’s actually the goddess of Mercy. Either way, I knew that I wanted to go and see it because of its majestic size and because it was something different…

The White Temple, Chiang Rai

After seeing Wat Rong Khun all over Instagram, (better known as the White Temple to foreigners) I finally had the pleasure of visiting myself. The long wait was worth it and I feel like I got so much more from my visit. I always thought that it was just the temple on it’s own –…

Chiang Rai’s Golden Clock Tower

The same artist who created Chiang Rai’s pride – The White Temple, Chalermchai Khositpipat – is also the man behind the clock tower that was unveiled in 2008. As it would be expected, this clock tower is nothing short than spectacular, and if you’ve been to The White Temple then you would know what to…

I urge you to pay this restaurant a visit if you’re in Chiang Rai. What a wonderful place with great staff and delectable food. I’ve been living in Bangkok for a few years now and it’s hard to find a place as unique as this one – and for such great value! In fact, it’s…

Khao Mo in Wat Prayoon

Khao Mo in Wat Prayoon has to be the most peaceful and tranquil place that I’ve been to in Bangkok. After driving past the very intriguing temple on numerous times while crossing Saphan Phut (Memorial Bridge), I have finally made the effort to stop and satisfy my curiosity. I think it’s safe to say that…

Every year thousands of people head to Bangkok’s Chinatown to celebrate the Chinese New Year. This year is no different in spite of the air pollution that has gripped the city in recent weeks, so much so that schools were ordered to close for two days. However, it’s business as usual and everything seems be…
