About this blog: If you have been following me on social media, you know I love Thailand. I have been there times in past three years and I can’t wait to be back. I do not know if it is the sea or the seafood, but I know Thailand has surely cast her spell on me. There is abundance of life. I worship it! This photo blog on Thailand is a compilation of the most beautiful experiences I have had from the land of free! Hope you enjoy.
Do check out my complete list of blog posts from Thailand!
Samet Nangshe Viewpoint. One of the prized trekking experiences in Thailand. You can trek up here in the morning and catch a mesmerizing sunrise. It is situated close to Phang Nga Bay. If waking up early is a challenge, do consider a night’s stay at the Sametnangshe Boutique property.
They say every storm runs out of rain, however these clouds looked ominous! Shot this from a bumpy speedboat ride on the way back from Phi Phi to Krabi in August. The sky cried for three days straight. It was overwhelming!
Shot from Santhia Koh Yao Yai Resort. This is the breakfast area which opens to the beach. At a distance you can see a few limestone creeks. the ferry takes tourists to Phuket town.
View from my suite at Santhia Resort at Koh Yao Yai. The tiny island has a few luxury beach side properties and a handful of locals living in traditional cottages. If you want a leisure holiday away from the crowds of Phuket and Phi Phi, Santhia Resort is your ideal spot.

A lobster farm on the Andaman sea. It takes anywhere between 8 months to 2 years to raise these lobster. They sell in gold in the tourist hotbeds in Phuket. However, only a fraction of the money reaches the fishermen folks.
A Chinese temple at Old Town Thakuapa. The old neighborhood carries a melancholic history of the era of Tin Mining industry. The buildings bear semblance to myriad architecture and carry a bit of both Orient and West in their souls.
The Chinese lanterns lit up the streets at the end of the day. Some traditions do not change.
Phuket city as seen from the Ka Rang view point. A bustling tourist area, also hailed as UNESCO Creative city for gastronomy, Phuket carries the world in bits and pieces and mixes them well in it’s hot wok seasoned with dark soy!
