Van Gogh Memory

Get ready to explore the world of Vincent van Gogh the first immersive art exhibition in Phuket at Tree O'Clock Gallery and Restaurant. "Van Gogh Memory" is an exciting exhibition that takes you into the life and art of this famous Dutch painter.

You could take cool pictures at our outdoor photo booth. Be creative and snap photos with Van Gogh's famous art all around you.

But the best bit was exploring the enchantment of his masterpieces with the tips of your fingers, and witness the art come alive in response to your curiosity. It's an immersive experience that seamlessly merges art and technology, bringing you closer to Van Gogh's work in a more engaging way than ever before. Tap the portraits and they change, touch the fields of corn and bees fly out, touch the grasses and butterflies flutter their way across the canvas.

Along with an informative guide and a super free craft class (we painted small light globes inspired by Van Gogh) we had a fab time.

Serene Ko Lamphu เกาะลำพู

-Surat Thani-Thailand

Ko Lamphu is situated in the Tapi River, which flows through Surat Thani. The island offers a serene and picturesque environment, surrounded by the river's calm waters. It's a great place to escape the bustling city and enjoy some tranquility in nature.

We stopped there on our road trip into Surat Thani province in February 2023, it was a welcome break from the City and a good way to get some informal exercise.

As a river island, Ko Lamphu may offer activities such as boat tours, kayaking, or simply relaxing by the riverside. During our walk round it we were struck by how much/many recreational facilities there were actually on the Island. Ranging from ball game courts, to outdoor gym equipement!

Stunning Phu Rhea National Park

Loei-Thailand

Back in 2016, when I lived in Nong Khai, way up in the North of Thailand, I took a road trip up and around The National Parks, of which Phu Rhea is one.

A very cool and slightly overcast day greeted us at the summit, which we arrived at by car.
With a few interspersed shots of sunshine, it was a welcome break from the heat in the valleys below.

Phu Ruae is a lofty table-top mountain overspread with pine trees. Its distinctive point is the overhanging cliff resembling a giant junk's prow. Phu Ruae national park covers an area of 75,525 rai (120.84 km.2) in Tambon Nong Bua, Amphoe Phu Ruea.

Located in Nong Bua, Phu Ruea and spreading across into the Tha Li districts, the park covers a total area of 121 square kilometers, with the northern tip reaching the Thai-Laos border. This mountain and lofty plateau is dotted with rows of pine trees and an overhanging cliff that resembles the bow of a sailboat. The surrounded area is punctuated by sandstone and granite peaks and populated by wildlife such as bears, deer, hyena, pheasants and big-headed turtles. The high altitude means the climate is cool all year round, in fact it’s the coolest national park in all of Thailand, according to statistics.

October to March are particular chilly and you can often see frost or frozen dew, known as ‘mae kaning’ in Thai, clinging to the plants and grass up near the peak. The park’s most interesting spots and attractions are as follows : -Decho viewpoint is an elevated spot perfect for watching the sun rise and on clear days visitors can see Loei’s mountain peaks in all their glory stretching as far as the eye can see. -
Phu Ruea Peak is the highest point in the park at 1,365 meters above sea level and is surrounded by grassy plains, rocky areas and both natural and cultivated pine forests.
