    A southern pearl with personality

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 31/03/2017

    » Forget the usual beach huts and bland hotel buildings you've seen on your previous visits to Phuket. Instead, imagine an eye-popping destination set on a lush and tranquil beachfront where the sand stretches for miles and the sea is made up of 20 different shades of blue. Welcome to The Slate.


    Cool finds in Chiang Mai

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 11/11/2016

    » We're not just about the "new". We also dig the cool, the fun, the funky and all things slightly hidden from plain sight. So we did a little detour, stepping into one or two "just-opened" venues and we also honed in on some less-discovered (but totally awesome) places. We tried, we tested and we even got a bit lost trying to find some of these hidden gems. So without further ado, dear readers, here are our top Chiang Mai picks for this year's winter season.


    Samui's extreme escape

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 07/04/2017

    » Some holidays should be spent being active and exploring new places, while others should be reserved for extreme relaxing and doing absolutely nothing. If you're after the latter, there's no need to look any further than here.


    Son of vinyl

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 23/12/2016

    » Not a fan of the overplayed, for-the-masses type of music? Then you need to tune into Cat Radio, the number one independent music station in Thailand. What makes this station (available on and application: Cat Radio) special (apart from its absence of the typical high-pitch DJs screeching down the microphone stressing the 'r's and 'l's in every sentence — yes we get it, well done, you've finally mastered the American accent!) is its unique picks of songs. This is all thanks to Arthit Promprasit, aka DJ Sonny, whose passion lies in vinyl records. He's been collecting them for over 25 years. His experience in the music field lies beyond the decks and building a huge record collection; he is also a music critic and journalist — as well as a DJ with the smoothest voice we've ever come across.


    Phuket On Point

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 01/07/2016

    » Planning an itinerary for a modern-day traveller is no easy feat. One minute they expect to be thrilled and swept off their feet with adrenaline-filled activities and in the next, they expect to be lying in the sun doing absolutely nothing, exerting minimal energy, deciding which cocktail to have next or reapplying sun cream.


    The Thalassophile's turf

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 18/03/2016

    » Whether you're a thrill or a chill-seeker, Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui has got you covered.


    What's cooking, neighbour? 

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 05/02/2016

    » After noticing a huge pool of culinary talent hidden in Bangkok's home kitchens — and a growing demand for authentic meals — Samuel Coizet and Pakki Sampataphakdee co-founded Kinkao (, an online platform that allows home chefs to cook and sell home-made meals to the people in their neighbourhoods. From Vietnamese to Mexican to Southern Thai, you can find nearly every type of cuisine on the website. We spoke with the founders about their endeavour.


    Nomad's land

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 22/01/2016

    » Sun, sand and sea are no longer the only features that Phuket has to offer. Pristine beaches and clear blue skies are usually the images we conjure up with every mention of the famed Southern island province, but the recent trend in Phuket's hospitality scene has seen some of the most stunning resorts moving away from beachfront and inland, toward lush verdant valleys.


    The five-star farm

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 27/11/2015

    » The allure of Chiang Mai draws all types of nature-seekers to the north of Thailand. The mountainous region offers countless opportunities to connect with Mother Earth, whether it's trekking, forest zip-lining, bathing baby elephants or, you know, simply admiring green areas larger than Bangkok's public parks.  


    Splish, splash, spin

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 06/11/2015

    » When I first heard about Aquabiking, I was sceptical for a couple of reasons. My idea of surf and turf sounds much better on a plate than a new form of exercise. And cycling in the pool? That's crazy. I suppose I did have a similar thought when the antigravity yoga craze took over the world. Practising a sun salutation is difficult enough on normal ground -- do we really need to be wrapped inside stretchy fabric and hung upside down?
