Khao Rang Viewpoint-Phuket

Khao Rang Viewpoint – sometimes called Rang Hill Viewpoint – is among the most famous of the many viewpoints around Phuket. The charming location offers unrivalled views to the south, right across the island’s main city and all the way to the Big Buddha, atop the hills in the distance. Some of the small, verdant islands off Phuket’s east coast are also visible.

The viewpoint itself is marked with a beautiful open pagoda, which leads out to a large viewing platform at the edge of the hilltop, with guardrails for safety. The whole area is surrounded by landscaped gardens and mature rubber trees, making it a very peaceful and natural spot. There is also a modest selection of cafés nearby, which take full advantage of the fantastic view.

Ma doo Bua l มา ดู บัว ภูเก็ต-Phuket

Sun, sea and sand is all Phuket is about? right? wrong, I bring you greetings from Phuket with one of those must see places that non one knows about!

Ma Doo Bua Cafe is an incredible cafe that has become famous due to the incredible pictures you can capture of their beautiful on-site lilypad pond. Situated quite far north from the regular tourist spots like Patong, Karon, and Rawaii beaches to the south, the wonderful images we captured made the trip well worth it. The fantastic scenery is complemented by a rather extensive food and drink menu with plenty of options for various pallets. From the presentation and quality of the food to the breathtaking lily pad pond, the unique imagery will likely appeal to many travelers and locals alike.

Ma Doo Bua Phuket is a relatively new café and restaurant which has captured the hearts of selfie-loving social media enthusiasts with their irresistible background and relaxed atmosphere. If it isn’t obvious to you already, the entire operation owes its popularity primarily to the giant circular Amazonica lily pad leaves. These being the largest in the species can allegedly hold up to 50kg!

you can lay on their rows of pillows and relax while taking in the breathtaking views. The small lake or pond has traditional Lanna-style wooden houses lining the lake and really help complete the picturesque scenery.

Laem Ka Noi, a place to find your inner peace............

Ban Nam Rad Pool

Ban Nam Rad Pool just back from my four day road trip to Huahin, stopping on the way up at Surat Thani, and Chumpon. The weather was none too kind, except the first day when we stopped at this deliciously cool pool.

After going round the small accessible mangrove area that surrounds it, with a Kayak, we cooled off in the crystal clear waters. A highly recommended place to visit if you haven't been yet!

The clear-water pond, about the size of a standard swimming pool, is supplied by a natural spring that the locals also believe to be holy.

Wat Phra Hin Wanaram.

A more complete look at my visit to this beautiful Temple- Wat Phra Hin Wanaram. on my way to Huahin. This is one I won't forget in a hurry!
Prachuap Khiri Khan province

Imagine me driving along the road to Huahin, when I see in the distance this beautiful white Chedi/Temple. I am on a main highway looking for the entrance to what I know will be a treat of a Wat complex.

As always here in Thailand the entrance comes upon you at short notice and short approach, screeching across loose gravel I safely make it into the compound, only to find a dirt track to drive along through several cows grazing.

Amazing Thailand!
The temple was established on August 23, 2014.

located on the other side of Khao Takieb about 8km south of Hua Hin town is Suan Son Pradipat beach meaning Sea Pine Tree Garden Beach.

Much quieter than it’s neighbour Hua Hin beach but not without its own charms. The beach and the adjoining land is owned by the Thai Army Welfare Office.

At the north end of the beach nearest Khao Takieb, there are many inexpensive beach restaurants.

The beach is over 6km long and most of the beach is lined with sea pine. The water is shallow and you can walk far out from the beach into the ocean before reaching any depth.
