Island Hopping, Binge Drinking And Playing With Fire In Ko Phi Phi

The ferry finally arrived into Ko Phi Phi. As we neared the main island we pass smaller islets that are stunningly beautiful. Their tall rocky cliffs tower over the sea and are covered with green canopied forests. I stare out of the boat window mesmerized. I feel like I'm at the pearly gates of heaven and I'm about to step into paradise.

Top Festivals You Must Experience In Thailand

One the great joys from my visit to Thailand was being able to witness the lantern lighting festival. To see it in person, was more stunning than any picture I've seen online.

Truly, if there's ever been a window into Thailand's soul, it's the many festivals it holds each year. These festivals range from solemn religious ceremonies to events that feel like large outdoor parties.

There's no better way to tap into a country's traditions than to attend a festival. Below is my list of festivals you must experience in Thailand.

Zipling With The Flying Hanuman

I have deadly fear of heights. It's an irrational fear that I've struggled with all my life. I've frequently tried to face it head on, hoping to cure myself of this neurosis (like my paragliding experience in Bavaria). Nothing really helps.

Traveling through Thailand, one of my goals was to try ziplining. Probably the single most famous zipline in Thailand is the "Flying Gibbon" in Chiang Mai. For whatever reason, while in Chiang Mai, I wasn't able to schedule a time to try it. So after landing in Phuket and googling for activities, I came across the website for the "Flying Hanuman". I was intrigued. I knew I had to do it.

Its fame can be attributed to the movie "The Beach", which was shot on Maya Bay.
