Visit Koh Kood, an undiscovered island in Thailand

Koh Kood

Koh Kood, also known as Koh Kut, is an undiscovered island in Thailand. White beaches, pure nature and a clear sea, these are the characteristics of this undiscovered island. Koh Kood is only 23 km long and 9 km wide. The number of islands in Thailand with few tourists is getting smaller. Fortunately there are many rules regarding the construction and conservation of the nature at Koh Kood. The chance that Koh Kood will soon become a crowded tourist destination such as Koh Samui, Koh Phi Phi, Phuket or Hua Hin is relatively small. Visit Koh Kood, an undiscovered island in Thailand!

Spending a few days on this island is amazing!

5 of the best ways to spend your time in India

India

Almost 6.5 trillion GBP is lavished on travel and tourism each year, and India is quickly becoming one of the industry’s biggest attractions. The seventh largest country in the world, India is rich with culture and its own unique ways of life, some of which can come as a shock to the western tourist. This should by no means put you off visiting. There is so much to see and do in India and many tourists claim they return a ‘changed person’. India offers great value for money and visitors are welcomed by the warm hospitality of locals.

Here are five ways to best spend your time in this unique country.

Indian food

Experience the food

The Indian takeaways that line the streets of western cities offer just a small representation of authentic Indian cuisine. Many Indian families do not have ovens in the home, particularly within the cities of Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata so street food is an important part of life here. As you wander the city streets, aromas of spices will leave your mouth watering.

There are some fantastic dishes to try such as kathi rolls, composed of a skewer roasted kebab wrapped with veg inside a paratha bread. Other popular foods include Naan breads and curries in the North of India, with rice, lentils and stews being more popular in the South.

Indian Wedding

Go to an Indian Wedding

The chance to attend an Indian Wedding is a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed. Weddings are a huge celebration in Indian and usually span over at least three days. Guests will attend in brightly coloured traditional dress to witness and take part in the various ceremonial rituals. Afterwards, you can expect further celebrations with food, music and bhangra dancing.

Taj Mahal

Landmarks

There are several iconic landmarks in India, including the famous Taj Mahal. The stunning white structure is a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the seven wonders of the world. This beautiful marble tomb was built in 1632 to honour the deceased favourite wife of Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan. Other iconic sites in India include the stunning hilltop Amber Palace that overlooks Maota Lake and the Ellora Caves of Maharashira.

Beaches

When thinking of India, many people conjure images of either city slums or beautifully ornate temples. It is often forgotten that Indian is also home to some stunning beaches. In fact, India has 4,000 miles of coastline. Some of the most exotic beaches can be found in Goa, in the South West of the country. Palolem beach, Goa is a particular tourist hotspot, with its white sandy bay, coconut palms and colourful beach shacks.

Volunteer with Animals

In the West Indian city of Udaipur, you can find Animal Aid Unlimited, a sanctuary for injured and ill street-animals. From dogs to donkeys, cows and pigs, they all receive medical care and a home in this wonderful place. There are also several sanctuaries in India that care for wildlife such as tigers, leopards and elephants. Many of these sanctuaries allow you to get up close and personal with these magnificent creatures and play a part in their care.

25 fun facts about Cambodia

cambodja

Cambodia is located in the south of Southeast Asia and the country borders Thailand, Laos and Vietnam. It has a beautiful landscape with highlands and mountains and has a 443 kilometer long coastline along the Gulf of Thailand. Cambodia is the land of the impressive Angkor Wat temple, which is a silent witness of how inventive and artistic the people in Cambodia are. The recent history of Cambodia is intense and has left its mark in this beautiful country. However, I find that this fierce history contrasts sharply with the relaxed and calm atmosphere that now prevails. What are fun facts about Cambodia?

4x the best places to visit in nothern Thailand

Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep

Thailand is a very beautiful country and many tourists visit it. Many people go south to one of the islands, for example Koh Samui or stay in the vicinity of Bangkok and visit an island in the neighborhood such as Koh Kood. Of course these are also great places to make a nice trip. But the area in northern Thailand has a hugely diverse landscape and countless attractions. It is often overlooked by tourists because it is not always convenient on the route. Something I find very unfortunate, because the north of Thailand has a lot of fun to offer.
