The Thailand guide

Latest articles

The Kingdom of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, is a tropical paradise in South-East Asia that attracts people from all over the world with its warm weather, delicious food, impressive temples, jungle hideaways and idyllic beaches.

Thailand has long earned the title of a digital nomad mecca — it is the country most often associated with the working traveller lifestyle and has lured visitors and adventurers for decades with the promise of freedom garnished with the beauty of blissful islands and the enigma of glittering temples.

Thailand offers a variety of incredible landscapes and cultural festivities, as well as lots of activities you can do in your leisure time. From soaking up the sun on an island, to trekking through the jungle to hilltribe villages, there are plenty of ways to spend a weekend. During the week, you can unwind after work in countless restaurants or bars, or learn a new skill, such as muay thai or Thai massage. There really are so many possibilities.

Once you touch down in Thailand, you'll probably want to get a mobile phone with a local Thai sim so that you can stay connected with your friends and family abroad, and keep in touch with your new friends and colleagues in Thailand. Keeping your existing service and using international roaming can cost a fortune, so it's worth having your phone unlocked from your service provider for a small fee before you leave your home country. Then you can get a Thai sim card when you arrive.

Having reliable internet is a priority for many foreigners living in Thailand — not just for work reasons if they're a digital nomad or a start-up entrepreneur, but also as a means to keep in touch with family and friends back in their home country. Luckily, there is a long list of internet service providers in Thailand, especially in big cities like Bangkok. If you don't want to have to go to an internet cafe every time you want to jump online, then you have a wide choice of home internet packages and mobile data plans that could suit your needs.

This blog describes volunteer work with children for a foundation in Isaan. It covers both major and day to day issues protecting children from traffickers and abuse. I also talk about small town living in Nang Rong, Buriram and touring in Thailand. I also show trips in adjacent countries with an emphasis on Myanmar, where I work with a foundation that imports most of that country's English language children's books.
