Why I stopped traveling to Koh Tao.

Well if you’re in Thailand right now or if you’re following the news about Thailand then you probably understand that headline. For everyone else here’s a short break-down of why me and many others decided to not visit Koh Tao anymore. Early in 2014 a tourist had been found dead. Police claimed he fell from a cliff and then drowned. Independent doctors from the UK then said his body doesn’t show symptoms of a deep fall and his blood doesn’t resemble the blood of drowning victims. The parents still claim…

3 Years In Thailand. Yearly Thailand Review

Another year, another review (2 year review). Once a year I’m reviewing my life, work and everything related that happened to me in the Land Of Smile. As always the review will be divided into Living, Traveling and Teaching/Working. Since I am nice (yes, really. sometimes) and realize that most people come here for the travel part, let’s start with that one. What have I done this past year, where have I been? To be quite frank, I didn’t see to many completely new places – that doesn’t mean I…

Koh Tao – Bay to go!

After 2 years I finally came back to Koh Tao. One of the most beautiful and charming islands i’ve seen so far. Why I like Koh Tao so much? It simply as a nice charme and so many different kinds of spots to go. It’s not only high class white beach resorts or completely individual hiking. It’s a mix of all of that. You can find beautiful beaches, a bit of a individual style (diving) community and more. Having talked about Koh Tao in general in my last post after…

Best Pancake Man Koh Tao - Mr. Ali Traveling 

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee – Pancake Style on Koh Tao.

While traveling you sometimes come across interesting, strange, weird or just memorable individuals. That’s what makes trips so worthwhile and awesome. One of the memorable people I saw during my last trip to Koh Tao was THE pancake man himself. Mr. Ali! Of course you can get pancakes everywhere! All around the world, in every touristy spot in Thailand, heck you might even don’t have to walk more than 100 meters to see the next pancake booth. However Mr. Ali on Koh Tao lives up to his name and puts on a great…

Hotel Review: Infinity Resort Koh Tao

This is going to be a short review since talking about that place is actually not really worth it. The pictures don’t look bad but that’s exactly why I went there and was so disappointed. I was looking for a place to stay that is a) close to the beach and b) after a long trip to the island not toooo basic. According to agoda.com the Infinity Resort matched those requests. As always agoda showed insanely high prices for the accommodation but claimed to have special prices. We all know by…

Turtle Island – Koh Tao

After surviving one night in Bangkok (and the world�s your oyster…) we got up in the middle of the night, checked out and walked fully packed to the lomprahya office where our bus to chumporn should wait for us. 5.30 was check-in time, 6:00 planned take off. real take off was at about 6:30 but sabai sabai…no worries. We went through Huahin where we had a short stop in order to let some more people in, received a free water and a free snack (didn�t expect that) and went on…
