    Keeping the faith

    Life, Gary Boyle, Published on 07/10/2019

    » A man possessed by the spirit of a tiger storms through a crowd. Penitent Filipinos are nailed to the cross. Skewers pierce cheeks, swords slash tongues, and young men are scarred until their skin resembles that of a crocodile.

    The hills are alive

    B Magazine, Gary Boyle, Published on 16/06/2019

    » Lisbon's hills are no joke. The city is built on seven of them, and a vigorous uphill stroll often sees you rounding a corner only to be faced with another, steeper climb. Your walk from one neighbourhood to the next can be a 20-minute hike. Your boutique room could be on the top floor of a charming, lift-free guest house. If you're not fit, forget it.

    Stay silly

    Life, Gary Boyle, Published on 10/04/2019

    » Depending on your age and sensibility, you either found Tom Green's comedy utterly hilarious or unfathomably puerile. His eponymous show, which ran on MTV from 1999, saw this gangly Canadian out to annoy the population of North America, sticking his camera in people's faces and doing dumb stunts, thereby providing a blueprint for the Jackass boys and a generation of foolish YouTubers.

    From pain to peace

    Life, Gary Boyle, Published on 15/01/2019

    » 'I shouldn't be in rehab at my age," says 28-year-old Andy*. As a music festival organiser, he curates events all over Europe, and is, as he puts it, "immersed" in drug culture. In rehab for cocaine addiction, he's also one of the increasing number of professionals aiming to make the music industry a safer place for those with substance abuse issues.

    Vivid Saffron nights

    Holiday Time, Gary Boyle, Published on 25/12/2018

    » At this time of year, both Bangkokians and tourists alike head for the elevators. Hit the top button in any decent hotel’s lift and within a minute you’ll be stepping out to a dazzling view of the city. Grab a seat as near to the edge as you dare, order a cocktail, relax and grab that all-important selfie.

    SAY bonjour to beef

    Holiday Time, Gary Boyle, Published on 21/12/2018

    » Bangkok takes its meat seriously these days. Foodies know their wagyu from their Angus, and if there are marbling grades lower than A5, I’ve never encountered such bland matter on any decent downtown menu. Committed carnivores require a place of worship to the pleasures of the flesh, a T-bone temple or a sirloin sanctuary. The devout will already know where to go.

    Spoiled for choice

    Holiday Time, Gary Boyle, Published on 21/12/2018

    » We don’t know where to begin. There are simply too many choices. We’ve entered the JW Café in the elegant JW Marriot Bangkok hotel on Sukumvit Soi 2 and realised we are hopelessly unprepared.

    Face time

    Holiday Time, Gary Boyle, Published on 11/12/2018

    » If you haven't fine-dined by the river in a while, it's perhaps time to show your face at Volti. Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok's Italian outlet (Volti means "faces" in Italian) has excellent food, fine wines, river views, and handsome young chef who has created a menu with surprisingly reasonable prices.

    Such great heights

    Holiday Time, Gary Boyle, Published on 21/12/2017

    » When was the last time you were this high? We’re 60 floors above Sathorn Road and if you haven’t been up here for a while, you might have forgotten how spectacular the view is.
