Bondi Beach – My-Thai.org x Sydney, Australia [review]

Even though Thailand has wonderful beaches and travel destination it sometimes is nice to get out of what you have right in front of you and experience other new and exciting places. One of the places recently on the travel list: Bondi Beach.  After having lived right at Bondi Beach for quite some time it was fantastic to come back again and hence I figured it’s a good idea to share some experiences with you, in case you feel like taking a quick break from Thailand. Before we get into…

GajaPuri Resort & Spa Koh Chang, Thailand [review]

When thinking about getting away from busy Bangkok for a few days, Koh Chang is very often the island of choice for locals and tourists alike. And there’s a good reason for it. It’s not as close as Koh Samed or Koh Larn and therefore doesn’t see as many weekend trips and, even though it’s famous, still somewhat manages to maintain the ‘cool island’ vibe. If you’re also thinking about heading to Koh Chang, here’s my review of GajaPuri Resort & Spa, a more upscale, yet affordable place to stay and…

Smoking ban at beaches from February onwards

As previously announced (Thailand to implement smoking ban on beaches) a smoking ban will be implemented on beaches in Thailand starting 1st February 2018. 24 beaches will be the first ones to make it illegal to smoke and litter (!!). If you’re caught you might face a fine of up to 100,000 THB and / or a year in prison. That’s probably not worth it! A few beaches tested the new rules over the past three months and violators were only given a warning, starting February it will be serious…

Vaping in Thailand

With Vaping becoming more and more popular many travelers as well as residents in Thailand forget one important thing: Vaping is banned in Thailand! Unlike some panic inducing forums might want to make you believe that’s not a new rule though, that has been the case since 2014. Now I don’t want to get into more details about whether or not that makes sense or not, you simply have to be aware of the fact that it is, in fact, not allowed here. Back from when Thailand outlawed the import…

Airport review – Changi International Airport Singapore

When traveling with one of the low cost airlines that come and go from and to Thailand or when going on long haul flights chances are high you might have to hit Changi International Airport in Singapore in order to catch a connecting flight. Changi Airport is one of the nicest airports I’ve been to so far. If ‘nice’ is a term that fits airports that is. What makes it nice is the atmosphere there. It’s rather spacious and divides the crowds rather well (unlike, let’s say, the Ataturk airport…

Thailand Low Cost Airline Ranking

When planning to travel Asia it obviously makes sense to look into different airlines and their offers. Thailand, luckily, sees a few low cost airlines landing and taking off. Here’s my personal low cost airline ranking for carriers that can take you to and from and around Thailand. Scoot TigerAir The winner of my personal ranking here is Singapore based Scoot TigerAir. As you can read in the detailed review they make the top of the list simply because they aren’t annoying, offer fast service and have big planes at…

Low Cost Airline Review – Thai Lion Air

Thai LionAir seems to be one of the lesser known low cost airlines around, at least it seems like that when talking to other expats here. Thai LionAir has quite a large variety of destinations at their disposal though and is, it seems, opening more routes as we speak. After having (had to) used them a lot for flights towards the South of Thailand, here is my review of Thai LionAir. Plane Similar to AirAsia and unfortunately unlike my experience with Scoot, all the flights I took with Thai LionAir…

Low Cost Airline Review – AirAsia

AirAsia is probably the most famous low-cost airline here in Asia and always brags about being awarded the ‘best low cost carrier award’ by skytrax for 3948 years in a row. I don’t really know how those awards are being held and who exactly determines the winners, I do however know that I used AirAsia quite a lot ever since moving here and hence think I can give some feedback about how it is to travel with AirAsia. Plane Unlike with Scoot TigerAir, I never had the experience of being in…

Low cost Airline review – Scoot Tiger Air

When you live in Asia for a while you obviously end up traveling quite a bit and, let’s be honest, we’re always happy to find good deals and don’t have to spend a lot of money for flights so that we can spend more on hotels or, more importantly, food! Therefore my-thai.org is happy to bring the low-cost airline comparison to you. We start things off with the best low-cost airline I’ve tried so far (that flies from and to Thailand), Scoot Tigerair. The flights I took with Scoot Tigerair…
