Motorbike trip in Chiang Mai, Thailand

As you might know from our previous article about Chiang Mai, there were many things we didn’t do there… We didn’t really find a good, trustworthy travel agency to do some rafting or trekking and I couldn’t decide which elephant santuary is reliable. Almost every street in the old town of Chiang Mai has some offices selling different tours and ...

Things we didn’t do in Chiang Mai

We were back in Thailand, in the first country that we visited during this trip, 3 or 4 month ago. Only now we realized how developed, when compared to Laos or Cambodia, Thailand is, how well tourism organized is, how many restaurants with westerner food, and supermarkets with imported goods there are. After three weeks in Laos we felt like ...

Backpacker sanctuary: Pai, Thailand

We heard about Pai countless times when we were in Chiang Mai and it was almost impossible to resist the temptation of going there. So we did what we always do. Rented a scooter, took only small backpacks and got on the way for two days of exploring. The distance between both places is only 147 km by the famous ...

Border crossing: Vientiane (Laos) to Chiang Mai (Thailand)

When the time came to cross the border between Vientiane in Laos and Chiang Mai in Thailand, we asked around in several travel agencies and the lowest price we got was 34USD. We knew we could get it cheaper. Below I’ll show you the prices we got by buying the tickets separately instead of buying it in the agencies. The ...

28 hour trip from Koh Tao to Siem Reap

It was 3PM when we got in the boat that took us from Koh Tao to Chumpon. The sea was a bit rough due to a strong rain right before we had sailed away, but the trip was ok. When we got to Chumpon, we were supposed to wait for 3 hours for the bus that would take us to ...

Last but best surprise: Koh Tao, Thailand

After seeing Railay, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, another beach destination couldn’t impress us that much. WRONG! Koh Tao was by far our favourite island in the gulf of Thailand. Koh Tao is a small island, with just 21 sq. km and a population of 1400. It is one of the world’s most popular destinations for scuba ...

What if there was no Full Moon Party? Koh Phangan, Thailand

If it wasn’t for Full Moon Party’s odd fame, Koh Phangan would be a quiet, averagely interesting island with few beautiful beaches and almost any attractions. The popularity of the beach craziness organized every month transformed the island into a party mecca, with thousands of people coming here to sunbathe and celebrate with alcohol. I wonder if the people living ...

Full Moon Party: Koh Phangan, Thailand

We are entering the island, going on the pick-up to our hotel on the main road going through the south coast of Koh Phangan. On the right we can see dozens of shops with fluorescent T-shirts, on the left posters with party locations, in front signs leading to thousands of rooms and houses for rent and next to us a ...

Suggested motorcycle route through Koh Samui

When we were on Koh Samui, renting a motorbike was the best way of visiting the island. Of course, there are private taxis and songthaew, but it is a quite expensive and not very convenient mean of transportation, as after visiting each attraction you have to look for the next car. I already wrote about the island here. Below I’m ...

More than just beaches: Koh Samui, Thailand

After a week of laziness on gorgeous turquoise beaches in Railay and Koh Phi Phi, Koh Samui was a great escape from colorful fish and white soft sand. You will not experience that here. The island, in general, is not pretty. It’s far from azure tiny bays of Koh Phi Phi or tawny orange cliffs hanging above the bluish water ...
