Let's go camping!

    A trip down history lane

    Life, Pongpet Mekloy, Published on 21/12/2017

    » Ayutthaya was the Thai capital for 417 years. During those centuries a lot happened. Somehow, for many Thais, the first -- and often the only -- thing that pops up when we think of the old city is wars with the Burmese. So when my friend Tui, who is a history buff, convinced me to go do some biking in Ayutthaya Historical Park, I didn't expect it to be much fun. But he proved me wrong.

    Young and active

    Life, Pongpet Mekloy, Published on 27/10/2016

    » This is an age when news and information (true as well as false, of course) is readily available. But despite the fact that your internet connection speed is not below average and you spend quite some time online each day, there are still certain decent things going on that you probably never knew about. Sometimes, the most likely reason you missed them is very simple: you're not young enough.

    Rayong's wonderful wetlands

    Life, Pongpet Mekloy, Published on 28/05/2015

    » Glowing in the champagne-coloured rays of the late afternoon Sun and gently swaying in the breeze from the nearby sea, the fluffy inflorescences crowning the tall green grass that fill these vast yet secret "fields" of Rayong province added magic to the already mesmerising scenery. Even more amazing is the fact that this grassland, which covers a combined area of almost 487,000m², literally floats on water.

    Where the Mekong ends

    Life, Pongpet Mekloy, Published on 04/07/2019

    » The Cai Rang Floating Market is one of the largest of its kind throughout the Mekong Delta in Southern Vietnam. Despite having gained such knowledge from a brief pre-trip research I wasn't expecting much when I slumbered my way onto the tour boat early in the morning to visit the place. Back home in Thailand I have seen too many floating markets already.

    Undisturbed by time

    Life, Pongpet Mekloy, Published on 20/06/2019

    » I had been to Kyoto a couple of times before. However, I had always thought of it as a city, as the former imperial capital of Japan. I didn't realise that Kyoto as a prefecture has much more to offer than the famous bamboo grove and those popular shrines and temples. Along the northern coast of the prefecture, referred to by some as "Kyoto By The Sea" nestled interesting places not much known among non-Japanese travellers. The fishing village of Ine, with its unique and well-preserved architecture, interested me most. It was the major purpose of my latest visit to the Land of the Rising Sun.
