Ultimate guide to Thai massages

For first-time spa patrons, getting a massage can be intimidating and raise questions like Is this going to hurt? Tickle? Do I keep my underwear on or go buff?

Jewel Changi Airport review – An architectural marvel at the world’s best airport

In March 2019 Singapore Changi was crowned the best airport in the world for the seventh year in a row. That was just before Jewel Changi Airport opened. After previewing this architectural marvel I can’t see how any other airport is going to take this title in the foreseeable future.

Make a Splash at Neverland

Equal parts spring cleaning ritual and biggest water fight on earth, Songkran marks the Thai New Year with a splash.

Now kids (and kids at heart) simply take this opportunity to make a splash and douse one another with Super Soakers, water balloons, and ...

Then a long section of stilted homes with interconnected decks reminiscent of a Bangkok fishing village. The final shock is the Automotive Riverbank Preservation Wall, a 1960’s decision to embed the riverbank with stacked cars to prevent erosion. I paddle  up to the bank and take ...
