9 Months In Thailand

My triple entry Thai visa has been used and abused, I’m all out of entries and it’s completely expired so after first coming to Thailand on September 1st 2014, I left for Oslo on May 10th 2015 to meet a friend of mine and for operation Europe! Weightloss I got weighed recently and was down […]

Blue Penthouse Apartment

I’ve spent the majority of my stay on Soi Tad-ied staying in the BM Guest House which was nice enough and covered the basics, single room, cheap (12,000 THB / £240 pm), great bed, working air con, separate shower room, balcony, cleaned weekly, but lacked on luxury, a tiny TV that was miles away from […]

Muscle Bar Soi Taid-ied

One of the cool things that Unit-27 do is offer a body composition service combined with a meal plan service at the Muscle Bar restaurant. They have some magic, electronic scales which will work out your fat and muscle composition, then based on that and your exercise levels they put together a meal plan so […]

Ho Chi Minh Is The Digital Nomad College

That’s how Ho Chi Minh was described to me. If Chiang Mai is high school then Ho Chi Minh is college for digital nomads, and it certainly felt that way as everyone I met was a lot further in to their career path than the people I met in Chiang Mai. Ho Chi Minh is […]

Hiring A Bike At Tiger Muay Thai

There are dozens of places around Tiger Muay Thai that hire bikes/scooters/mopeds. Most hotels do it, Tiger Muay Thai does it, and there are a few independent places on the street that specialise in it. I hired a bike from 2Home when I was staying there, naively, and paid 2000 THB (£40) for a weeks […]

Primal Fitness Gym

A new gym has opened up on Soi Tad-eid called Primal Fitness, owned by the same people that run Unit 27. This now makes 4 gyms on the street, including Tiger Muay Thai’s, Unit 27’s small gym area and Titan Fitness. Primal Fitness is the best gym here however, hands down. Primal Fitness only has […]

Blue – The Tallest Apartments On Soi Tad-ied

Since I arrived at Soi Tad-ied, the street Tiger Muay Thai is on, in September, there has been a huge, 8 storey apartment block that’s been constantly under construction. At least 5 months in the making, this week they had a grand opening, pool foam party so I decided to have a look inside and […]

How I’m Training At Tiger Muay Thai For Under $1500 A Month

I’ve been training at Tiger Muay Thai and living and eating on ‘the street’ for 5 months now and I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how much it costs, where to stay, what to eat and what’s there to do, etc. Especially when compared to the costs of living in Chiang Mai! I’ve […]

4 Days On A Deserted Island

Freedive UK arranged an incredible shipwrecked event where 14 of us stayed on a deserted island and had to fend for ourselves for 4 days with skills taught to us from some local Moken, learning how to freedive, build spears, spear fish and forage for food! The first couple of days were spent learning the […]

Snorkling At The Similan Islands

Last weekend to take a break from training and have a bit of an adventure I arranged a snorkling trip so the Similan Islands through Phuket Dive Tours. There was an offer on at the time and the cost of the trip was 2700 Baht (£53) and included transfer to the boat to the Similans, […]
