  • Muay Thai - Thai Boxing

    Bangkok Sports & Outdoors

    Go to the Lumpini stadium to watch some bouts of Muay Thai boxing (the national sport). Quite different from any sporting atmosphere you will experience in the west. The Thais love to bet on the outcome and will shout odds between contests.

    Phuket Sports & Outdoors

    I visited Sail In Asia Ltd in July 2012 to take a 3 week sailing course that would take me from not knowing a thing about boats except which end is the front or 'bow' as i was immediately corrected. The school is located on an amazing quiet sandy beach called Ao Yon. There are about 30 yachts anchored in this quiet little bay. They called it the...

    Bangkok Sports & Outdoors

    This can be a fast paced game of agility. A rattan ball is served from the corner and then the striker kicks the ball over the net. You can use any part of your body except your arms and hands. If you're not used to playing and you strike the ball with your head it will hurt! The guys that play all the time have tough heads. LOL It really helps if...

    There are plenty of places to skate in Bangkok if you keep your eyes open. I know of a skate park near Ekkamai which I've never been to but is meant to be great on a Saturday. I would normally go to Queens Park at the Phrom Pong BTS station there are no ramps here but are a few slides etc to play about on. Also plenty more to do in the park from...

They were made famous by a James Bond movie.There are many variations to the caves. Some have short entrances and large open centers.

  • Thai Boxing

    Check out a Thai boxing match, it is a very intense and surreal sport. It is quite an experience. This match was in a stadium in Koh Samui, these guys pounded the hell out of each other and the crowd went nuts. They play some crazy music at these matches as well.

  • Scuba Diving

    I dove in two locations off of Koh Samui, the island of Koh Tau and marinepark. Koh Tau was a better dive, much more clear and better coral and marine life. I suggest asking for a smaller boat, they get you out and back quick. The boat in the picture took about 3 hours each way versus 45 minutes in a speedboat. I booked through Dive in Deep, they...

  • Sailing in Sattahip, Thailand

    Sattahip is not a place for tourists. It's land of Thai Navy. Luckily, my friend, Wan, got some connection and I had a chance to be there and enjoy my trip.One thing I like best in Sattahip is its' primitiveness. Putting hands under sand and lifting it up water surface slowly...can you imagine...you would see many tiny sea snails scrabbling on...

  • Ride an Elephant in a River

    Thom's elephant ride is about a 10 minute drive outside the village of Pai. If you stay at Thapai Camping (see my Thailand Hotel/Accommodation Tip), it is at the end of the driveway on the paved highway. It costs 600 baht (~$15) for 1.5 hours. The route is mostly in the clear water of the Pai river. Just one warning...never trust an elephant that...

  • If You Thought I Were Kidding

    There are pluses and minuses to riding in the front right behind the elephant's ears. At least the neck is not as wide as the back, so your legs don't get as sore. However, you are the main target of any cold water "showers." LOL, as you can see, it was actually great fun. Again, don't wear or carry anything that cannot get wet.

    Nakorn Sai Yok has plenty of family type activities to do such as picknicing, Tubes for rent etc... The water in the river isn't very deep in March. As it was the dry season. I'm sure the river would be unswimmable during the rainy season. This are was quite popular with Bangkok Teenagers hanging out for the day. It took us about 1 ½ hours by car...

  • southern thailand: swimming

    All coastal southern thailand is beach country... especially on the islands. I chose Koh Samet for two reasons: first it's near bangkok and relatively low-key, and secondly because, during the wet season, it has a nearly-dry weather. If i can judge beaches from the only island i've been, this is a perfect country for swimming (lovely warm water9...

  • northern thailand: bamboo rafting

    Rafting on a bamboo "raft" is quite interesting, you get to see life from the river's point of view. However it's gentle rafting: it doesn't do much to your adrenaline level. To give you an idea of hoe gentle, just know that i managed to smoke a cigarette while rafting (ok, the guide was not pleased). A rafting trip costs about 250 baht per person:...
