Because there's so much more than Pad Thai.
Hat: I must confess that loathe wearing hats. This is a terrible thing to admit because they're so essential for travel but
Bottom line: there are plenty of pretty darn cool things to do in Thailand. And pretty much none of them should have to involve tracking down lost friends after Zach Galifianakis slipped a handful of barbiturates in your drink.
It's a classic case of haute couture meets prawn couture.
It's easy to plant yourself in Bangkok for your entire trip to Thailand. It's true, you'll never run out of things to do, flavors to taste or Singhas to sip. However, spending your entire Thailand visit in Bangkok means you're missing out on some of the country's greatest destinations. These five Thai towns and cities are just as impressive as Bangkok, if you can peel yourself away from the capital city.
By 2020, tourist numbers could rise to 47.5 million.
From the highest open-air bar in the world to the coolest warehouse restaurant, we show you this Thai city in a whole new light. There are so many markets to choose from, but the main Chatuchak 10,000-stall weekend market has wholesale prices.
Jeffrey Alford started writing about food in 1988, and though things have drastically changed in his life since then, his
It's safe to say this year's winter definitely had us looking forward to spring! We may have theoretically passed that long-awaited first day of spring, but in Canada, Mother Nature doesn't seem to be ready to give up with grace. To beat back our late winter blues, we rounded up top Canadian Instagrammers who've been capturing the beauty of Canada and the rest of the world, whatever the season.
When I shop, I want to know how the pieces I like are made. I look at the tag. I ask where the fabrics are from. I read about the designer. These details reveal the process of a piece that earns a hanger in my closet. This is what separates Heather Smith's designs of Laos-based shop Passa Paa from fast fashion retailers and puts a value on owning her pieces.
When I go out for Thai food, I always order pad Thai. But after thoroughly enjoying every bite, crumb, and speck on the plate, I usually end up with a stomach ache and am guzzling water for the rest of the day a result of the rich, creamy sauce and mounds of sodium. That is why pad Thai is one of my favourite food makeovers!
A woman pours water over a Buddha statue at the Songkran and Thai Food Festival held at Wat Buddharangs. But that's only
Back in 1913, the Thai Army suffered from an outbreak of dysentery and searched for any possible option to control the scourge. At the time, a local traditional medicine expert offered the troops what he called Krisanaklan Trakilane.Ninety-nine years later, the components of the wonder drug were finally isolated.
If you take only one thing away from this blog, let it be this. Health and fitness is not about looks, it can not ever be. Vanity only takes you so far. It has to be about enjoying everything the world has to offer. It is about having the energy and drive to get up and explore. There is nothing that replaces a memory created.
The volume of sex tourism in Thailand is suggestive of an epidemic. Perhaps the men who participate in it are unlucky in love. Perhaps they're just misunderstood. Or, perhaps they just fetishize the exotic "other." Sex tourism would not exist -- nay, thrive -- without the demand-pull provided by men unable to check at the airport, or to fulfill elsewhere, their hormonal desires. So, fellow travellers, young and old, fat and thin, Caucasian and Asian (because lewdness is colourblind), please, I implore you: Stop bringing your unrequited sexual fantasies to Thailand (and to Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar). It's demeaning. It's perpetuating. And it's embarrassing.
