For those who are looking for a serious vacation, the one that would make you think of nothing, even the guilty feeling caused by some lingering, unfinished works, Pranburi would be the place I’d recommend. The place is about an hour south from Hua Hin, but...
Above: This video highlights Chantaburi’s beautiful nature, captured during our recent ‘Pure Nature’ trip to Chantaburi with the TAT. So we were in Chantaburi in September. Which, as everyone might have already taken note, was an offseason for this tropical fruit haven. The Tourism Authority of Thailand is now promoting ‘second-tier’ provinces, trying to boost awareness for the smaller, on-the-fringe...
Above: This is not your everyday durian, but the rare and much-coveted ‘black durian’ that fruit orchardists usually keep for themselves and exclusively share with their loved ones.
