What $420 in Rent Buys You on Koh Tao thumbnail

Who's ready for another edition of House Hunters International: Thailand Edition? It's a little reality show I go through every time I return to Koh Tao and attempt to secure long-term accommodation. Compared to the real estate anguish I used to experience when apartment searching in New York, looking for a place to stay in Koh…

My Travelversary: Year Five thumbnail
