    » It was dark outside and the crickets chirped monotonously. The rooster's crow before dawn could easily wake up an entire household. I glanced at my watch only to realise it was 4am. Soon an e-taen, a modified farm truck, would pick me up to go watch the Sun rise over a sea of fog from Huai Ton Hai viewpoint in Sukhothai's Ban Na Ton Chan village.

    Life, Karnjana Karnjanatawe, Published on 07/01/2016

    » Wild Himalayan cherry trees, known in Thai as phya suea khrong, shed leaves during the cool season, leaving only brown branches that make them appear as if they are dying trees. But on the tips of a few of the branches, pink flowers still blossom.

    » Hanoi boasts a long list of must-do activities and must-see sites: the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Dong Xuan Market, museums, lakes and more. Recently, however, on my very first visit to the Vietnamese capital, I skipped them all.


    No more pining for Pineapple

    Life, Pongpet Mekloy, Published on 23/06/2016

    » It was about two years ago when the Pineapple track was built on Khao Hin Lek Fai, the hill that is home to Hua Hin's best mountain bike playgrounds. But almost as soon as the local riders could finally enjoy the fruits of their labour, the track suddenly became forbidden. The TV signal transmission station on the uppermost part of the hill refused to allow bikers to enter its premises to reach the trailhead. And that's it.


    Fear of falling

    » Namtok Mae Tia is part of Ob Luang National Park. Perhaps because it is located away from the park's headquarters and its other attractions which are near the Hot-Mae Sariang section of Highway 108, the 80m-tall waterfall remains largely unknown.


    Tourism on their Terms

    Life, Karnjana Karnjanatawe, Published on 02/01/2014

    » If you can get a bird's eye view of the terrain, from a plane window, perhaps, or just by poring over a topographical map of southern Thailand, Koh Yao Yai is an elongated strip of green in the middle of Phangnga Bay with the nearest land mass of any size the much bigger island of Phuket and the mainland provinces of Phangnga and Krabi.

    Too close for comfort

    Life, Peerawat Jariyasombat, Published on 15/08/2013

    » It's become such a popular destination that tourists could be forgiven for assuming it's a province in its own right. But Hua Hin is only a district, albeit the most famous of the eight that make up Prachuap Khiri Khan province and the one located nearest to Bangkok.

    » Sao Saenngam is only 49, but he's witnessed more dramatic change in the last few decades that either his father or grandfather saw in their entire lives. His birthplace, a tiny island only 30 minutes by ferry from Pattaya, has been altered almost beyond recognition since he was a boy.


    Legend of the falls

    Life, Pongpet Mekloy, Published on 28/02/2013

    » When it comes to mountain biking, getting there is not just half the fun; it's every bit a part of the excitement! And that proved true again last Sunday when I revisited Pha Sawan waterfalls in Thong Pha Phum, Kanchanaburi.
