Traveling By Ferry In Thailand

Traveling by Ferry in Thailand

Other than Phuket and Ko Samui, which have their own airports, expect to travel by boat or ferry in Thailand if you plan on doing any island hopping. And let’s be honest, who goes to Thailand and doesn’t intend on exploring any of the tropical islands or stunning archipelagos?

4 Days On Ko Samui: A Photo Diary

4 Days on Ko Samui, Thailand - A Photo Diary

Ko Samui was the first beach destination on our Thailand itinerary. We were definitely enchanted with this initial sampling of bright turquoise water Thailand has become overly famous for. So much so, in fact, that we did little else during our stay on this island besides frolick on the beach soak up the sun’s rays.

Blue Paradise Resort: The Best Mid-Range Accommodation on Phu Quoc Island

Blue Paradise Resort: The Best Mid-Range Accommodation on Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam

What an absolute gem of a hotel we happened to stumble upon when booking our Phu Quoc Island accommodation. Blue Paradise Resort had only JUST opened at the time. It was so new, in fact, that we couldn’t find any reviews or pictures online, and none of the island’s taxi drivers were able to take us to the correct location.

So we took a chance on this little start-up hotel, and man did we ever luck out.

What To Expect At The Phu Quoc Night Market

Phu Quoc Night Market

There are actually two night markets in Duong Dong town.  The old one (Dinh Cau) and the new one (Bach Dang). They are both just a couple streets away from each other. So it’s no trouble at all to go back and forth between the two.

Pura Luhur Uluwatu | Aka The Hottest Place On The Planet

Pura Luhur Uluwatu (aka Uluwatu Temple)

If you ask me what’s the warmest place I’ve ever been to, I can without a doubt answer: Pura Luhur Uluwatu! Apparently, the name translates to mean “Noble Temple Uluwatu”. But I’m pretty sure that it actually means “The hottest place on the planet”. Maybe don’t quote me on that, though…

Pura Luhur Uluwatu, in itself, is fairly simple. It’s the temple’s location that beckons guests to it daily.  Perched on the edge of a lofty cliff with the Indian Ocean waves rolling in below, it boasts some of the most breathtaking panoramic views in all of Bali. Therefore justifying being subjected to such inhumane heat. Continue reading
