A World Heritage Site is a landmark or area which has been selected by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) unique as a cultural, historical or natural site that shows “outstanding universal value” and is legally protected by international treaties. There are currently five World Heritage Sites in Thailand and six other sites on the tentative list considered for nomination. Out of the 11 sites listed below, we have visited three (those with a checkmark), meaning we have lots of interesting places yet to explore.
WORLD HERITAGE SITES

Krabi is a wonderful province with a spectacular coastline formed by a mix of natural features including limestone mountains, mangrove forests, beautiful beaches, and paradise-like islands like Koh Lanta and Koh Phi Phi Don. It has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Thailand and now has an airport which serves international as well as domestic flights. The following is a list of the best places to stay in Krabi Province.
1. Ao Nang
A world of possibilities is awaiting you in the municipality of Bangkok. This urban oasis is the capital as well as the most populous city in Thailand hosting one of the world’s most sought-after sites for people of all cultures. With over 8 million people within its boundaries, this delta-based metropolis is far from your average city and should be thoroughly explored. The sights and sounds of the city will entrench visitors inside a paradox of exotic cultures.
Boy, are they lucky in Berlin! Every weekend (during good-weather months) the Thai community meets in a small park in western Berlin called Preußenpark, also known as the Thai Park to cook and eat authentic Thai food. The story goes back 25 years when a group of Thai women arranged to meet each other’s families for a food fest, and since they all lived in tower blocks with no gardens or outside space, meeting in a park was a natural thing to do. Eventually, park visitors started asking the families if they could buy some of their food, and the idea of having a Thai street food market on the weekends was born.
So, if you’re planning on visiting Berlin this summer, make sure to hit the Thai Park for some authentic Thai food — and don’t go for the classic Pad Thai or red curry. Instead, try something you won’t find in your ordinary Thai restaurant like the pork noodle soup as shown in the video below.

Since most ‘farangs’ meet girls from northeastern Thailand, a region known as Isaan, I thought it would be fun to share my experiences being married to a woman from the south. Now, every woman is different, so don’t take my words literally. Also, age plays a role, and the younger generation is more westernized, like my 30-year-old wife who speaks decent English and has a more liberal attitude.

When we are traveling in Thailand, I take lots of pictures, and I have noticed that my favorite ones happen to be pictures of old women. Now I’m going to be a bit cliché, but every picture tells a story, and old people are amazing with wrinkles representing years of experience. Below are four different old women from different parts of the country each of them telling a different story.
