Exploring paradise on earth. Islands of rocks, greenery, peace, and calmness. Incredible hot air fulled with happiness and feeling to stay here forever. If there is any place to escape and hide from reality, Thailand is definitely one of my happy secret places.
The first thing I have noticed is seeing thick wires on the streets. Tens of tangled electric monsters connecting streets impressed me. First days in Phuket was staying at Keemala resort. It was the best choice of accommodation. Literally. Unique "bird egg" villas beyond woods with sharp paths leading to one I was staying at. Want an incredible view you see on Instagram while sitting on the chain in your office dreaming of a vacation in Thailand? Keemala is definitely one of those resorts to give proper Thai experience. Day by the pool is a must. Seeing the scenery, sipping mango juice and having a snack while jacuzzi bubbling my body, get spoilt. Favorite deep tissue massage or midnight dive in a private pool villa and refreshing sunrise yoga session. And the thing I remember the most about this fantastic place is the people. I have never met such a friendly, willing and smiling staff. Every day is a great day here.
Kimala beach close by full of beach clubs. Drinking champagne, eating sushi and stay in the sea or the pool for a couple of hours while listening to chill step and house music at Catch Beach club or Cafe Del Mar. Or chill at the beach and feel hot sand on under your body. Do not forget sun protection lotion, even if the sun is behind clouds, you can end up in the bed for three days with sunstroke. As me and my friends did.
be exactly where you wanna be
THAI PARADISE OF
MONKEYS & BEACHES
ROCKS & HAPPINESS
INVINCIBLE THAI CUISINE
Another day, another pool. Today swimming inside a huge pool right under enormous rock full of trees and monkeys, and lizards crawling around. People at the beach practicing yoga and enjoying the postcard view. Perfect place to escape from reality with no cars or any roads. Time to have good internet detox.
Railey Beach with stunning white sand, fantastic limestone cliffs and breathtaking view.
Resort Rayavadee which was our home for a couple of days is full of forest and paths with spectacular plants and outstanding natural beauty.
Last full day before leaving this paradise. Due to sunstroke, we spent some days recovering in the bed although Thailand was a great start of 2020. Phi Phi Islands is today's plan. One-hour speed boat ride to Maya beach. Fresh air and excited to see the spot where the movie The Beach was shot. The Monkey Island was another stop. Big families of monkeys cuddling, some of them laughing and having a good time. While taking a pics one of the monkeys jumped on our boat. Probably she wanted to steal something from us really badly. Unforgettable swim in the middle of the Andaman Sea of the Indian Ocean and heading to another island called "Chicken Island". From distance, the island looks like giant chicken and the one next to it as a giant turtle. Tiny beach with white sand and the only place to relax was the boat or swim in the sea. Woden swing, nobody, and only sea? To top up this fantastic dream we had a private picnic here. Perfect day!
Phi Phi Islands
and this is what I ate ...
Waking up in a giant egg house in the middle of jungle seeing only greenery around. In the morning I could not miss my favorite egg breakfast with fresh-squeezed juice sipping by the pool. Thai cuisine is one of my favorites. Every foodie will love traditional soup with coconut and chicken Tom Kha Kai, amazing Pad Thai noodles and all selection of curries. My favorite was definitely red curry Gaeang Daeng and butter chicken. Everywhere I go a burger is a must. All country is full of farmers and I was not hesitating to think that fresh burger would be a sin. I stick to specials, always. Love my favorite Wagyu or Angus beef medium cooked with a melting cheddar and sweet potato fries. Dessert is a must too. Locals are preparing sweets mostly made of rice, honey or coconut. The most delicious I have tasted was Thong yip. Usually is made of duck or chicken egg yolk, sugar, and jasmine-flavored water. Word Thong in Thai means gold, symbolizes wealth, prosperity and good luck.
If you big fan of curries, rice, and noodles or sipping fantastic aromatic teas, Thailand is definitely one of the places to give you the most tasty experience on Earth.
