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…

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.

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…

9 of the coolest temples to visit in Thailand

Time for some #RealTalk here. No matter if tourist or expat, at one point in your Thailand journey you quite likely will suffer from something we here call “temple fatigue”. That’s nothing disrespectful, it’s just that you’ve seen lots of temples during your time in the Land of Smile and it becomes a bit repetitive. There are, even after you’ve seen a lot, still a few temples that stand out from the crowd and provide completely different vibe than most others. Here is a list of those 9 coolest temples…
