If I buy myself some clothes or other material things, my pleasure is not for very long time. You buy it, you wear it, you take it for granted. But if you invest your money in travelling, you live on this for longtime. Memories arise and you gain pictures in your head from moments nobody could give you […]

Baiyoke Sky Hotel is the highest hotel in Bangkok and was the most luxury accomodation I had during this vacancy. 5.022 Baht for two person and two nights. It is clean and we got a free upgrade which was wonderful. The hotel has 83 floors and I lived on the 49th. The view was stunning […]

I received a wonderful Bamboo Tattoo made by great artists from Koh Tao Bamboo Tattoo. First I was sceptical, but after having spoken with another tourist I knew that they would do a good job. The stuff is very friendly and there’s only one thing to say: A tattoo made bamboo art is ART! For […]

Koh Tao Tropicana Resort was my favorite place to be in Thailand. It’s on the island Koh Tao and an absolute origin island. There are a lot of diving schools and I already have regrets that I did not make my free diver there. You should do it there. The resort is pretty clean and […]

Shark Bay is a pretty spot where you are able to see a lot of colored fish and little sharks. Unfortunately I saw none of the sharks, but I saw a large turtle instead and this was stunning. There is a nice restaurant on top of the hill and you see down to shark bay […]

Malibu Beach Bungalows are pretty little Bungalows with a hammock on each veranda. They look pretty nice, but they are very small and simple inside. You got a mini fridge and the bathroom is like all the bungalows in Thailand only one room where you flood the whole room by taking a shower. I will […]

This lodge is absolutely extraordinary! I booked three nights for 1.950 Baht and what I got for this was much more than I expected! Let’s start from the beginning: I took the fairy from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan which took me about one hour. They said it would take 30 minutes, but I was […]

Staying in a bungalow in Chaweng Chalet is very good. They are so friendly and the beach is very beautiful. The little bungalow is clean and offers a big, big bed. The shower works good and the wifi does even work at the beach. It is nice like a little home: You should like cats […]

This night was an adventure to me. I bought a ticket for the train to move from Bangkok to Surat Thani. It wasn’t expensive at all and I was so excited what would expect me. At first, I thought I would be in the wrong train because of the seats there. I expected to see […]

If you have some time left in Bangkok, you can also take a ride on the Chao Phraia river with the boat. It took me one hour of time and around 650 Bath to do this. Adventure lies just around the riverbend. The winding Chao Phraya River is Bangkoks arterial waterway and main thoroughfare for […]

This elaborate temple doubles as the national headquarters for the education and preservation of traditional Thai medicine, and is also the site of one of the first Thai massage schools. If you’re not here to study, wander through the galleries filled with gilded images of Buddha, relax respectfully next to the 150-foot-long Reclining Buddha, or […]

I am lying in the little coye of the night train from Bangkok to Surat Thani. This is my third night without sleep. I am lying awake and my eyes don’t want to do me the favor to close themselves. Since today I did not know why I couldn’t sleep at all, but perhaps I […]

Every traveler needs to go to Khao San Road. It’s slightly touristy reputation is preceded only by its avalanche of sights and smells, essential for getting into the groove of Bangkok’s rhythm. Swing over to Santichaiprakarn Park for river views and buildings that dot the coast. Stick around at night for the unique shophouse eateries. […]

There are several floating markets near Bangkok and for me it definitely was a highlight. The one I went on is about one and a half hour away, so the one or the other would perhaps prefer a nearer one. You get there by taxi or car and after that I was brought to the […]

Travel

First night in Bangkok and I am very happy with our hostel which is called Glur Hostel and Coffee Bar. It is very pretty inside, but you have to be aware that it is only a hostel. There’s no special extra and you immediately get the feeling of being a real traveller. This is our […]
