A journey to truly Asia Day and Night

A journey to the sun & getting rid of worries.

We focus on different perspectives plus arrivals in Bangkok and other places. Enjoying beaches and islands, outdoor adventure, nightlife and other vacation. In Siam as it was formerly known are top travel packages available, no need to run around and get stressed. Just read through our website and hit the road to south, east, west or north Thailand. There are five international airports which are Phuket, Krabi, Hat Yai and Chiang Mai and sometimes U-Tapao.

Crossing the border via road travel is mainly from Malaysia, Cambodia and Laos, Myanmar is not interesting because of their visa regulations, better take the aircraft to Yangon

Some basic data.

Transportation in the capital and elsewhere.

The best and fasted transportation in urban areas are motorbikes (scooter with 125cc), they can be rented everywhere for around Baht 250,- / day but it is very dangerous to drive with them because most people don't know about traffic rules and they just don't care. A good alternative in Bangkok would be to take a "Motocyc" taxi and the BTS (elevated train) or the underground. For long distance take the bus, they are in good condition, the roads are also quite good, means a perfect match.

Phuket Day Trips Sightseeing and Cruising

Phuket Holiday at it's best.

What makes this round trips very interesting is the variety and the fact that they quite good organized although the agents often try to pull the tourists into shops to sell them something since they get commission there. If something like this happen tell the guy bluntly to stop it since you don't want to be sold by him / her, unfortunately Thais want to sell you anything constantly.

You could also just hire a car or a scooter 

and make a beach hopping around there are many beautiful waterfronts to explore and most are almost empty especially at the north west.

Ko Panyi & James Bond Island in Phang Nga Bay

Ko Panyi was founded by Indonesian fishermen in the 18th Century similar to other places in southern Thailand.

This is a great water world and the only way to enjoy this is by boat, there are no other ways since the interesting part are the bizarre limestone islands. To get some better idea of the area take accommodation, in one of the guesthouses. Ko Panyi is a Muslim village right in the water on stilts, this golden shimmering mosque is a beautiful optical impression. Maybe have something to eat, be aware that everyone wants to sell you something.

Ko Panyi built on stilts

The place is about a half kilometer long and before the tourists came all people made their money with fishing. 

Explore the incredible limestone formations, the natural formed caves and have a dive in the pleasant tropical water, just tell the boatmen to stop on a beach you like and jump. 

If you go swimming or just walk around in the splendid waters keep your shoes on or use dive boots, sometimes there are quite sharp coral pieces and other stuff around which is not visible but has sharp edges and after having a cut is having a problem.

This area is full of breathtaking panoramas, full of excitement which makes you -gasp- oh - ah and I can't believe. Beaches are so many, nobody actually know how many, but for sure enough. In the emerald sea you will find your own private island with a beautiful white stretch of sand, there are several secluded resorts around. The whole looks like Halong Bay in Vietnam.
