Always wanted to experience the exotic and colorful beauty of Asia? See vibrant colours of beautifully diverse flowers, listening to different languages and hear relaxing music in the air? Yeah Elizabeth Gilbert got that one right when travelling to Ubud in Bali! I can imagine back when she went to Bali it sure was extremely quiet and peaceful.

Koh Chang, Lonely Beach

Tiny travel guide on Lonely Beach [Koh Chang]

Koh Chang white sand Lonely Beach 2

Koh Chang is Thailand’s second largest Island with about 5000 residents and means translated “Elephant Island” thanks to the shape of the island itself. It used to be a very remote and quiet island with only a few tourist appearing here and there. However due to the increase of tourism, Koh Chang has become more populated and therefore more  resorts and hotels have risen in the past decade. It is not as busy as Phuket or Koh Samui yet and therefore still a lovely destination for a more quiet holiday. However the peak season between the cooler month November to February can be very crowed, even on Koh Chang.  We visited Lonely Beach which is one of the furthest part of Koh Chang when leaving from the ferries. Come and check out what makes this little remote part of Koh Chang so attractive…

Paris Park view Eiffel Tower

There are so many treasures to discover and things to do in Paris. The beauty is that most of the main attractions such as the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower and the countless picturesque bridges of Paris are in plain view when cycling along the river Seine. Walking the distance would be a whole day event and result in very hurtful feet [I tried it and gave up at the Pont Alexandre III!] Thankfully you can see and reach all these main attractions in no-time with Paris’s public bicycle sharing system which is called Verlib!
