Thai Girls in Bikinis – Miss Thailand World 2013

Thai Girls in Bikinis – Miss Thailand World 2013

There surely wasn’t a hotel in Thailand offering a better package last month than the Cape Panwa Hotel in Phuket. Beautiful Thai girls in bikinis was the surprise bonus for red-blooded males staying there because the hotel was host to the 20 finalists of Miss Thailand World 2013 and their three-day...

From Bangkok to Chiang Mai and a Tale of Drugs in Thailand

From Bangkok to Chiang Mai and a Tale of Drugs in Thailand

Two stories have caught my eye this week, or perhaps two stories I’ve sniffed out might be a better way of putting it because drug addicts and drug rehab clinics have hit the headlines in Thailand as the country’s fight against the use of illegal drugs continues. In October last...

My First Time in Chiang Mai in Pictures

My First Time in Chiang Mai in Pictures

Like most Thailand bloggers I have a large database of photographs from different regions of the Kingdom most of which will never see the light of day. For every one hundred pictures I take I would doubt if even five of them make it to a post on Beyond The...

Chiang Mai’s Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep Temple

Thailand’s capital has a populace of over 9 million citizens and Chiang Mai about 170,000, a huge gulf which mirrors the 700 kilometres...

On the Road To Loei and Phu Rua

On the Road To Loei and Phu Rua

If I could have bottled the young lady’s excitement I would have screwed on a lid and labelled it ‘ Wonderful Wi’s Energy Drink ‘. Of course, finding an empty jar in a Thai village is another matter, they’re always half full with something, a Thai recipe wouldn’t be complete...

Khon Kaen – A Wedding And An Empty Fruit Bowl

Khon Kaen – A Wedding And An Empty Fruit Bowl

Khon Kaen is never going to make the world’s big fruit bowl. The Big Apple it isn’t, and the Big Mango it ain’t. Isn’t, and ain’t, kind of sum up Khon Kaen to me. What New York and Bangkok serves up in big chunks, Khon Kaen offers in smaller slices,...
