Yes it’s true. In an insane twist of events — Thailand has dropped its strict Cannabis Regulations and has become the first country in Asia to legalize recreational use. Writing this still feels crazy to me — like it should still be kept a secret. But times have changed, and so, here is everything you need to know about legally consuming cannabis in Thailand as a tourist, (or a local). Important Note: This guide was first published in June 2023. One year after cannabis became legal in Thailand.

It changes your perspective, seeing Orangutans in the wild. They’re awesome, they’re basically humans, and I’m convinced they can speak. Orangutans are an icon of Borneo, which is one of the only remaining places in the world, where they are known to live in the wild. There was no chance that I was going to travel to Malaysia, and not venture out to meet them. It doesn’t cost as much as you might think to see Orangutans in Borneo, flights were cheap and you can either take a cruise down the river to spot them or visit one of the two sanctuaries in Borneo. What is Borneo Borneo isn’t a country ..read more

Things To Do in Ipoh, Malaysia: A Three-Night Itinerary

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Ipoh at first. And when I was planning my trip to Malaysia, I wasn’t sure if I should include a stop in the town or not. I’m glad we did because Ipoh is a charming town with a rich and cultured history. There are not a huge amount of things to do in Ipoh (or so I thought) but nonetheless, it’s worth stopping here for a couple of nights. There is a train station in Ipoh, on the main KTM Komutor Line, and the town is a one-hour bus ride away from the famous Cameron Highlands. So it makes sense to stop here too. In This Ipoh Guide… What to expect. As part of ..read more
