Fading Paradise – A Tonsai Climbing Documentary [Video]

As many of my readers know, I fell in love with climbing and Tonsai beach ever since I first came here. The unique atmosphere and mix of cool and down to earth people made it instantly my happy place here in Thailand. Now, however, lots of resorts thought it would be a good idea to kill all the unique Tonsai atmosphere and just make it another resort-heavy beach area. This documentary outlines the process and what makes / made Tonsai so special. What are your thoughts on this?

Ao Nang – Krabi – doorway to happy place

When planning a trip down south towards the beach chances are high one comes along the name Krabi. And rightfully though.

Krabi | stay away, please!

As you can see in my post about backpacking Thailand, I spent some time in Krabi. I did not talk much about it in this last post because I do not want to tell everything to everybody. Actually I would like as many people as possible to stay away from this place. Not because I do not like it but because I simply love it! Since you are special readers (yeah! =) ) I am happy to share some extra insights about this wonderful place with you. Krabi is quite…

2 weeks backpacking | Thailand and Kuala Lumpur

Chiang Mai – Songkran Festival The first stop was in the north of Thailand in the most beautiful city of whole Thailand. The Rose Of The North. Chiang Mai. While Chiang Mai is always worth a visit we…
