Visit Tatton Waterfall @ Chaiyaphum

Visit Angkor Wat @ Siem Reap

Korat is remarkably close to one of the most famous Unesco world heritage sites and it's relatively easy to get there.

Visit a beachy thing @ Had Jom Thong, Khonburi

Korat is a long way from the sea, but believe it or not it's a lot closer to a beach, but don't get too excited it's not the Costa del Sol, Waikiki, Bondai or even Blackpool. It's more of a beach in concept than in practice but never the less it's the closest you'll get to a proper beach without a very long drive to the coast. It's...

Visit Sheepland @ Khao Yai

I'm gonna start this off by admitting that I'm Welsh. 100% full blooded Welsh stock. So when I was told I was going to be reviewing Sheepland, I had mixed emotions. Firstly, excitement because I going to spend some time with the animal that gives the Welsh more ridicule than any other, and secondly...

Visit Wat Pa Lak Roy @ Non Thai

Wat Pa Lak Roy's Heaven and Hell is an outstanding temple located about twenty kilometres from Joho.
