Hike Your Heart Out Koh Tao: The Dusit Buncha Trail thumbnail

I'd heard the rumors: there was a deep jungle trail that connected the northern tip of the island's main road to around the backside of my favorite Koh Tao viewpoint. If you look at a map, there's nothing between the two aside from hills and jungle. I couldn't find anyone who'd actually done it, just those…

Is Koh Tao Safe for Travelers? thumbnail

When I read about Koh Tao in the international media – a statement that has only been possible in the last two years or so – I literally feel like I’m reading about a place I’ve never been before.

Where To Eat and Drink in Siem Reap thumbnail

The Great Escape: Months 53 and 54 Roundup thumbnail

Welcome to Cambodia. I beamed when I heard it, a now familiar phrase. This was my fourth trip to Cambodia and my third to Siem Reap, the city whose airport we had just landed in from Bangkok. There are plenty of unticked places on my Southeast Asia to do list. So why return to the same…

Hotel Crush: Bangkok Tree House thumbnail

Bangkok and I are old friends. It's a city I always go back to -- in my last seven month stint in the country, I made five separate trips there. And while I never, ever tire of Thailand's sprawling capital, I do love exploring new corners of it. Ones that can make even a veteran visitor…
