National sport of Thailand, Muay Thai is a combat sport similar to boxing and martial art. It uses the entire body, incorporating punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes.

The Most Magical Hidden Temple in Chiang Mai: Wat Pha Lat

I've been to Thailand many times now, and this temple is by far one of the most beautiful discoveries I've had the chance to make. Wat Pha Last is nestled in the forest, a few kilometers down the road to Doi Suthep. Built on the top of a rock, this Buddhist temple is completely out of sight, lost in the lush jungle, as peaceful as it can get. You won't find any tourists here, any tuk tuk or food stall, but only butterflies, Buddhas and monks.

We stayed in Phuket only a couple of days, time to relax and organize our trip to the Similan Islands.

You haven't seen Bangkok until you have done these 10 things

Early morning in Bangkok, I can't wait to explore the city. I dive into a whole different world, where businessmen queue to get their breakfast in street food stalls, minibuses honk whenever they cross a pedestrian and people deposit offerings on the mini-temples in front of their buildings. My eyes sparkle, amazed by everything that is going on around me...

Kill the Bucketlist - Episode #1 - [VIDEO INSIDE]

2014 has been a little bit crazy. A wedding. A hug with a koala. A one way ticket to Hong Kong. A kiss with an elephant. A jump from a plane. A Korean karaoke. A trek in the Himalayas. An encounter with a Buddhist monk. A Japanese garden. A cat café. A never to be forgotten curry. Yeah, we've pretty much kicked our bucketlist this year*.
