Wat Pah Koh Suwanaram Hatyai
It has been a while since I wrote a story on Thailand. In one of our previous trips to Thailand, we visited the Wat Pah Koh Suwanaram in Hatyai. It is one of the most popular Buddhist temples in Hatyai in the tribute to the late abbot Wat Pah Koh Suwanaram.
It is quite a distance from the town so it is better to charter a taxi or tuk tuk. Do negotiate the price with them.
It is not about how beautiful or how unique the temple is …

It was the Pattaya Floating Market, one of the latest attractions in Pattaya. Pattaya has been …

Borderless Satun Thailand
We often heard about Thai border towns like Golok and Dannok but many might never heard of Satun. Yes, it’s Satun and not Saturn, please. It shares the border of town Wang Kelian of Malaysian state Perlis.
