Phi Mai historical park Isaan

Isaan – North Eastern Thailand

Isaan is a region of Thailand located in the north-east, well off the popular tourist trails, but well worth the effort of getting to and exploring. You might not have heard of Isaan as a travel destination before, but you might have heard about places like Khon Kaen, Nakhon Ratchasima, Knon Khai, Udon Thani or Ubon Ratchathani, all of which are located in Isaan region.

Tagaytay City, Philippines

Tagaytay City is one of the Philippines’ go-to destinations all year round. With its cool climate, high altitude, must-see destinations, and the scrumptious food available food at every corner, Tagaytay is definitely the place to visit.
Hua Hin Thailand beach from lookout

Hua Hin Beach destination guide

Hua Hin Thailand is the beach resort of choice for metropolitan Thais and expats living in Bangkok. A little over two hours by road from Bangkok, it's an easy day trip for any traveller who doesn't have Thailand's beaches and islands on their itinerary.
Koh Phi Phi island, Thailand

Koh Phi Phi islands, Thailand – stunning beaches

Koh Phi Phi is Thailand without many of the restrictions of religion and culture. It's Thailand for the young people, with skimpy dress codes, loud music, cool pubs, nightclubs, parasailing, dive trips and more. It's also a place of remote quiet beaches, canoeing through limestone caves, exploring deserted islands and snorkeling among coral reefs.
Prachuap Khiri Khan beach

Prachuap Khiri Khan destination guide

Only two hours south of Bangkok, Prachuap Khiri Khan means "city in the mountains" and boasts gulf beaches and pristine national parks. It's so beautiful the Thai royal family once claimed it as an exclusive holiday destination and many of Bangkok's elite still have holiday homes in this area.
Ancient street in Chengdu

Chengdu destination guide

Chengdu is the capital city of Sichuan Province, in the central west of China. We visited Chengdu mainly to see the pandas but this city has one of the largest pedestrian shopping malls we've seen in China, lined with the most incredibly cheap boutique brand stores. It's surprising to see quality clothing at these prices outside of bootleg markets.

Chiang Rai Thailand

Chiang Rai, Thailand – Destination guide

Chiang Rai is one of those places we might never have seen except that we had a spare weekend in Chiang Mai and not much planned. So we hired a car and drove the three hours north to Chiang Rai. We didn't come back for a week! And even then it was hard to leave.
Tiger temple Kanchanaburi

Tiger Temple, Kanchanaburi, Thailand

The Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi gets some bad press, but my family all loved it. Where else do you get the chance to be up close and personal with huge tigers? It's a once in a lifetime adventure experience for the whole family.
Bangkok Chinatown Odeon Gate

Bangkok Chinatown and Little India, Yaowarat, Thailand

Bounded by Silom in the east and Rattanakosin in the north-west, Yaowarat is Bangkok Chinatown and Little India, although it's probably fair to say the Indian community has as big a stake in the area these days as the Chinese.
