Pai – Thailand

Pai – Thailand

I have seen a fair bit of Thailand.  The last time that I visited, I spent 3 months in the country exploring the south islands, Bangkok and the provinces surrounding it.  However, I didn’t get a chance to explore the north of the country until my most recent visit. ...

Chiang Mai – Thailand

Chiang Mai – Thailand

Chiang Mai is Thailand’s second-largest city and is a jumpoff point for many other destinations in northern Thailand.  The city has many of the trappings of Bangkok with a much more chilled out pace of life. There are temples, markets, an abundance of amazing cafes...

Elephants In Chiang Mai

Elephants In Chiang Mai

During my recent visit to Chiang Mai, what was without doubt the absolute highlight of the trip was visiting the Elephant Rescue Park.  Chiang Mai is famous for its elephant sanctuaries and visiting one was definitely something that I wanted to do whilst out there....

Vertigo – Bangkok

Vertigo – Bangkok

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to rooftop bars in Bangkok.  My unwavering favourite, not just in Bangkok but the-world-over, will always be the Sirocco Sky Bar at the Lebua State Tower.  However, I’d heard good things about Vertigo Moon Bar at the Banyan...

White Temple – Chiang Rai

White Temple – Chiang Rai

If you visit the north of Thailand, a trip to the White Temple is a must.  “Wat Rong Khun” (as it’s known in Thai) is located just outside of Chiang Rai and is without a doubt one of the most aesthetically impressive temples in the whole of the country.It looks out of...

Chinatown – Bangkok

Chinatown – Bangkok

If you’re an adventurous eater, no trip to Bangkok would be complete without a trip to Chinatown.  With its crowds, heat, noise, bright lights, smells (both good and bad), it can all feel a bit like an assault of the senses.  However, that’s something that many people...

Sky Bar – Bangkok

Sky Bar – Bangkok

For the ultimate drinks venue in Bangkok, look no further than Sirocco Sky Bar.  Described as “the most stunning rooftop bar you’ll ever see” by the New York Times, it has some of the best panoramic views of the city.  Aptly named, Sky Bar sits pretty on the 63rd...

Night Flower Market – Bangkok

Night Flower Market – Bangkok

Bangkok’s night flower market, or Pak Khlong Talat as it’s also known, is perhaps the best smelling and most beautiful market in the city.  It operates 24-hours a day, however, most of the flowers are put out by the vendors when temperatures are at their mildest,...

Grand Palace – Bangkok

Grand Palace – Bangkok

The dazzlingly opulent Grand Palace is one of Thailand’s top attractions and a must-see if you visit Bangkok.  It's where the former king used to reside and is home to the Emerald Buddha, meaning it's considered to be the most sacred place in the whole country.  The...
