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,…

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…

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…

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…

Bang Nam Pheung Floating Market

When you visit Thailand, on the top of the must-do activities is to go to one of the floating markets. It’s like nothing you’ve seen before and truly an unforgettable experience. The only downside is that it’s a 3-4 hour drive from Bangkok just to get to the famous Damnoen Saduak or Amphawa floating markets….

Saphan Phut (Memorial Bridge)

If you visit the famous Grand Palace or the Reclining Buddha in Bangkok, then chances are that you might see the Memorial Bridge. It’s the second bridge built in Bangkok to cross the mighty Chao Phraya River, connecting Phra Nakhon and Thonburi districts of the city. It was built in 1932 to commemorate 150 years…

Kaeng Krachan National Park

It Wasn’t Easy, But It Was Worth It! First of all, I’ve got to say that finding this park was a little hard to find by car. For some reason I couldn’t find any clear signs with directions to the entrance of the largest national park in Thailand – about 2900+ km² to be exact….
