Ko Phangan Beaches

Of the 4 famous islands of the gulf – Ko Samui, Ko Tao, Ko Phangan and Koh Chang – Ko Phangan features the loveliest, most pleasant beaches. This review covered most of the local beaches and I hope to review the rest of them soon.

Ko Phangan Travel Guide

the most beautiful beaches, snorkeling and diving spots in Thailand are on the western side (Andaman sea), and less on the eastern Gulf of Thailand. However, of the 4 famous islands of the gulf – Ko Samui, Ko Tao, Ko Phangan and Koh Chang – Ko Phangan features the loveliest, most pleasant beaches. On the other hand, the island has little to offer families, other than laid back relaxation on the beach. While Haad Rin beach attracts younger visitors and party people, the other beaches offer only few restaurants, perhaps some shops and massage parlors in the hotels area (if at all).

Wat Phra That Lampang Luang

Wat Phra That Lampang Luang is an ancient Lanna styled temple that is considered one of the most beautiful in northern Thailand and I highly recommend visiting there.

Thong Nai Pan Bay – Ko Phangan

Thong Nai Pan bay – its two small bays Yai and Noi – is definitely one of the loveliest Ko Phangan bays. The beaches are great and hardly affected by the unique high/low tide conditions of the Gulaf of Thailand (while many other Ko Phangan beaches are greatly affected).

Petchabun Travel Guide

While I expected a rather empty area, I was surprised to find a lively destination with thriving internal tourism as you can see for yourself in the attached videos that accompany the different articles on Petchabun. There were even some non-cheap resorts where you would struggle to find available rooms. I believe that in the not-so-far future, Petchabun province and its lovely landscapes, with the pleasant weather and authentic Thai experience it provides – will become a popular destination in northern Thailand, attracting many foreign tourists.

Wat Pha Sorn Kaew – Petchabun

An incredibly unique modern styled temple – completely different of all the other temples in Thailand. This is a stunning work of art that will leave you mouth-watering and fascinated. Nowadays, visitors to this wonderful temple are almost only Thais, but I have no doubt that in the future, this wonderful place will become a popular tourist attraction.

Wat Bang Thong – Krabi

Wat Bang Thong is a unique, spectacular temple located in Krabi Province, not far from Ao Nang, Rylee beach and all the other famous tourist spots in the area. However, this beautiful architectural and cultural gem is unknown to most tourists. Even those of you who aren’t particularly fond of temples will not be able to enjoy this marvelous beauty. Highly recommended!!

Lampang Weekend Market

Lampang weekend market is a pedestrian walking zone active on weekends only. Similarly to the city of Lampang, it is known to be unique by its setting and special atmosphere, rather than the commodities sold here.

Lampang Horse Carriages

the horse carriages are one of Lampang’s famous, prominent symbols, and a tour across the city in a decorated horse carriage is an inseparable part of the visit.

Lampang City and its attractions

The city of Lampang is a unique, extraordinary city that was once rendered a large trade and commercial center of the north area, and nowadays allows for an interesting combination of the old and new. It’s the only city in Thailand where horse carriages are still in use, and have thus become one of the city’s symbols, and is certainly a place worth a visit.
