Where I’m At: February, 2019 – Kuala Lumpur edition

Greetings from Kuala Lumpur and another edition of Where I’m At – my monthly summary of where I’ve been and other site news. Where I’ve Been Saigon Apart from the first and last days of January, I spent the whole month in Saigon. I started the month in Pattaya and Bangkok, before returning to Vietnam. Originally I was going to visit the Mekong Delta, but I needed a productive month of not moving around. January is also the best month of the year in Saigon, so I made the most of that. Th...

Pattaya – The beach of Bangkok, and thoughts on retirement

I’m usually immune to click-bait listicles, especially when they just arbitrarily rank cities. One list that I will always stop to read though is Mastercard’s Global Destination Cities Index. For the 2018 list Bangkok was number one again, which was not a surprise. What was a surprise was to see Pattaya checking in at #18. A lot of that would be spillover from Bangkok, as Pattaya acts as a de facto beach suburb of Bangkok. Even so, the high ranking made me curious enough to warrant a revisit. ...

Model claiming Trump secrets deported from Thailand

A Belarusian model who claimed she had evidence of Russian efforts to help Donald Trump win office was deported from Thailand on Thursday after being convicted of participating in a "sex training course". Anastasia Vashukevich, known by her pen-name Nastya Rybka, was held with several others in a police raid last February in the sleazy seaside resort of Pattaya.

How to Make Most of Pattaya in Your Next Trip to Thailand

Interestingly, most tourists look forward to the more exotic destinations in the country that are far away from the capital but are reluctant to take a drive to the closest entertainment hub, Pattaya. Pattaya is a famous beach town that is a hot spot for solo travelers and bachelor groups but families or honeymooners rarely look in that direction for the reputation it had built for itself in the early years. Interestingly, Pattaya is one of the most happening destinations if you know how to do ...

Coolest temples in Thailand

Visiting temples is one of the highlights of any trip to Thailand. Their ornate pagodas and golden statues make them must-see attractions, and there are many options for visitors to choose from. Thailand is home to about 40,000 temples, several thousand of which are located in Bangkok alone. It would be easy to simply temple-hop in the capital city, limiting your visit to the heavily-trafficked Wat Pho and Wat Arun — which are certainly worth seeing — but in a country replete with beautiful...

3 Beach Destinations in South Asia That You Must Visit

Beaches and islands have always been one of the most sought-after travel destinations for tourists around the world. Since most beach destinations have tropical weather and offer a natural escape, many travelers prefer beaches for their getaways since they can be usually visited all your round.

Notes on Cyprus – Roman ruins and a future global business hub

When I announced I was going to Cyprus it elicited differing reactions from friends online. For some English friends, Cyprus is associated with cheap package holidays, and the holiday makers that go with it. At some of the places I visited I did see that element, which reminded me of the Australian bogan culture in Bali. But like Bali, there is more to Cyprus than a subset of tourists. A former archaeologist friend reminded me of the rich Roman heritage on the island. And there are some genui...
