Mrauk U Princess Resort.  I am not sure how they did this, almost like sleight of hand.  My car rolled up to the Mrauk U Princess Resort.  I slid out of the seat, covered in dust, sweaty after a full day of exploring the temples.  And there waiting for me was a staff member, with a cold, [...]

Three Days of Luxury in Khao Lak.  Travel blogging does not rank highly in the hierarchy of well-paid careers, but it does come with some awesome benefits.  After spending three days roughing it on Surin Islands in very rustic accommodations (either tents or simple bungalows), I arrived at the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa [...]
