Sidemen, discover the authentic and green Bali

sidemen

If you want to discover the authentic and green Bali, Sidemen is the place to be. Sidemen is in a friendly area with rice fields, valleys and green hills. So beautiful, this area has been promoted as a Unesco World Heritage. Time stands still here and the daily life of the Balinese is still as it used to be long ago. You can compare it a bit with Ubud 20 years ago. Quiet, beautiful, artistic and situated in beautiful surroundings. Sidemen is located in east Bali about an hour’s drive from Ubud. It’s great to discover Sidemen in Bali, because it breathes peace, calm and serenity.

The 3 nicest islands in Thailand

thailand

There are hundreds of islands in Thailand and most have been specially developed for tourism. As a result, many islands are crammed with hotels, airports, restaurants and shops. You have to search better and better if you want an island with peace and an authentic atmosphere. I love to end my journey after a hustle and bustle in some parts of Thailand on a quiet and beautiful island where preferably there are few stimuli and where life is very relaxed. Since I have been in Thailand very often and I have visited a different island on every trip, I have seen many islands. What are the nicest islands in Thailand?

I like to share with you the 3 nicest islands in Thailand!

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!

Traveling in the Philippines, 9 things to know

filippijnen

Traveling in the Philippines is great and this country must definitely be on your bucket list. You will find the most beautiful beaches in all of Southeast Asia. The Philippines is the country with 7.107 islands and the most amazing lagoons, beautiful inland areas and green rice terraces. The Philippines have a bit of an image problem in that it’s not a safe country. This is due to media reports about abductions and drug issues. Yes, there are certainly islands where you should not come, but these are clearly separated from most of the country, where it is safe and very nice and beautiful. “It’s more fun in the Philippines” is the famous slogan about the Philippines and I fully agree! What do you need to know before traveling in the Philippines?
