When spending time in Thailand, or any other place in the world, you’re bound to get romantically involved with a local at some point. Regardless of the scorn you might see on a few faces passing you by, it’s only human nature to want to fraternize with beautiful women who are different than you in so many ways.
If you plan to be traveling for a long time, romance becomes an inevitable part of travel. Whether it be one night stands, drawn out flings with travelers, or miming-filled relationships with locals who don’t speak English, you cannot spend a long time traveling without getting caught up in some drama of some sort.
So, you are coming to Thailand for the first time and you want to know what the best things are to see and do. Congratulations on choosing this amazing country for your next vacation, and I hope I get the chance to see you on your travels. Since that’s highly unlikely to happen, I’ll give you a little advice for planning out your trip.
By the way, this is not […]
If you are from a somewhat modernized place in America or Europe, you most likely have realized that homosexuality is a huge part of our culture and whether you like it or not it is something you have to live with. Personally, I see nothing wrong with people living their lives the way they wish. Being a heterosexual male in Thailand, however, might come with a few shocks you are […]
While it’s tempting to rush through Vientiane and head straight into the Laos mountains, where rugged adventures await—or dash back to “society” in Thailand—don’t be so quick to dismiss what is quite likely one of the quietest country capitals in all of the world. While Vientiane may not have much in common with a lot of your more fantastical ideas about Laos, it is certainly an integral part […]
After my first few trips to Laos, I walked away with the impression that Lao food was far less tasty than food in neighboring Thailand, and Thailand certainly has a reputation that is hard to compete with. But now having spent a little bit more time in the country, I find myself gaining a healthy respect for Lao food than I had in the past.
Perhaps I was just looking […]
The first time I came to Vientiane, Laos, it seemed a boring place, not to mention a bit pricy compared to the rest of Southeast Asia. And I couldn’t wait to move on. Now, after four years of life in Thailand and having spent a total of […]
While traveling in Thailand or Laos, you may very well have come across the famous photo of a large group of American soldiers holding up what is supposed to be a dead specimen of a giant snake. Rumor has it the picture is a hoax; to locals, it is photographic evidence of the Naga, a giant and magical serpent they believe lives in the Mekong River to this […]
As an American-born individual, the most interesting part of traveling in Vietnam, for me, was the history between my country and this one. It’s no secret to most that there was a long, bloody, and extremely controversial war fought between our countries, and to many Americans, especially the ones that grew up during that era, it’s mind-blowing to think our citizens can freely travel there now.
It was not […]
By far one of the most beautiful landscapes on Earth can be savored while sitting on the deck of a boat in “Descending Dragon Bay,” otherwise known as Halong Bay, off the coast of North Vietnam. A beautiful ocean landscape, Halong Bay is riddled with the kind of limestone karsts you find jutting out of the waters in Krabi, Thailand – only it is said to be even […]
