Fire Dancer Pirates Bar Koh Phangan
A beautiful, friendly, tolerant country (it is full of Buddhists after all). Unfortunately economic development and unbridled tourism has deformed this country. Check out Ko Samui or Ko Phanghan for a real getaway. Stay away from Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket. Chaing Mai too has changed for the worse. The hill tribes of the north are worth a visit though.
Maya Bay, Thailand
This is the magical place where they filmed The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio. The water, the sand, the steep hillsides surrounding hidden pools all combine to make this one of the most special places on the planet!
