Khun Korn Waterfall, the best waterfall we have seen in Thailand
North Thailand is full of waterfalls. In some areas, you can’t drive for more than a few kilometers without seeing a sign for a waterfall, be it by the side of the road or an hours trek through the forest to get to it, you are certainly spoiled for choice with these natural wonders of Thailand.
A renewed love for the beauty of Mae Hong Son, its surroundings and its Cafes
The first time we set foot into that little town almost 9 years ago, we loved Mae Hong Son. Arriving as young 21 year old travel virgins on a speedy mini bus, the town, much like a lot of North Thailand embedded its green mountainous landscapes into our memories. As time progressed having lived in North Thailand as expats for several years now, we accumulated 7 visits to Mae Hong Son. Each time the town lost a little bit of magic, albeit because of bad weather or bad circumstances we started to view Mae Hong Son as a pit stop on the long journey around the 600km + loop from Chiang Mai. Forgetting the reasons why we fell for it originally so long ago.
Party Boat Sailing in South Thailand - Phuket & Krabi’s Beaches and Islands
Us, and party boats is normally a combination that wouldn’t spring to mind. We rarely drink alcohol and live a quiet life in North Thailand. So when we were invited to join The Sail Spin on their 5 Day, 5 Yacht DJ Boat experience we weren’t sure if it was going to be an amazing journey, or our idea of hell.
After some thought, we decided that it was an opportunity that we couldn’t pass up, even if it was slightly out of our comfort zone. Plus we were being offered a complimentary 5 day experience of South Thailand’s Beaches and Islands, somewhere we had yet to explore during our 2 years living in the North.
Watch the Video to see what we thought of the experience. :-)
Would we do it again? Short answer - Yes, with a few modifications. We would prefer to join a trip like this with a group of our own friends rather than just a married couple alone amongst a large crowd of singles. But the beauty of South Thailand really shined through all that and made the experience a balanced mix of landscape, relaxation and socialization that would appeal to many.
