Her Take: Beautiful Beaches and Binge Drinking on Koh Phi Phi

Many people refer to Koh Phi Phi as the most beautiful island in Thailand, and who can blame them?

Her Take: What to Expect from Food Poisoning in Thailand

Her Take: What to Expect from Food Poisoning in Thailand

Food poisoning is shit in the most literal sense of the word.

Her Take: Why Pai is a Must-See Stop in Northern Thailand

If you only have the opportunity to see one spot in Northern Thailand, put Pai at the top of the list.
