Travel can be exhilarating but steep culture shock awaits you if you're unprepared for a foreign country's culture, customs, and day-to-day lifestyle. This is not only in reference to external factors...
Bottom line: there are plenty of pretty darn cool things to do in Thailand. And pretty much none of them should have to involve tracking down lost friends after Zach Galifianakis slipped a handful of barbiturates in your drink.
Last week, authorities removed more than 137 tigers from the temple grounds and also found 40 dead tiger cubs in a freezer and 20 more preserved in jars.

It's easy to plant yourself in Bangkok for your entire trip to Thailand. It's true, you'll never run out of things to do, flavors to taste or Singhas to sip. However, spending your entire Thailand visit in Bangkok means you're missing out on some of the country's greatest destinations. These five Thai towns and cities are just as impressive as Bangkok, if you can peel yourself away from the capital city.
By 2020, tourist numbers could rise to 47.5 million.

It's safe to say this year's winter definitely had us looking forward to spring! We may have theoretically passed that long-awaited first day of spring, but in Canada, Mother Nature doesn't seem to be ready to give up with grace.

When I shop, I want to know how the pieces I like are made. I look at the tag. I ask where the fabrics are from. I read about the designer. These details reveal the process of a piece that earns a hanger in my closet. This is what separates Heather Smith's designs of Laos-based shop Passa Paa from fast fashion retailers and puts a value on owning her pieces.

When I go out for Thai food, I always order pad Thai. But after thoroughly enjoying every bite, crumb, and speck on the plate, I usually end up with a stomach ache and am guzzling water for the rest of the day a result of the rich, creamy sauce and mounds of sodium. That is why pad Thai is one of my favourite food makeovers!

If you take only one thing away from this blog, let it be this. Health and fitness is not about looks, it can not ever be. Vanity only takes you so far. It has to be about enjoying everything the world has to offer. It is about having the energy and drive to get up and explore. There is nothing that replaces a memory created.

The volume of sex tourism in Thailand is suggestive of an epidemic. Perhaps the men who participate in it are unlucky in love. Perhaps they're just misunderstood. Or, perhaps they just fetishize the exotic "other." Sex tourism would not exist -- nay, thrive -- without the demand-pull provided by men unable to check at the airport, or to fulfill elsewhere, their hormonal desires.
So, fellow travellers, young and old, fat and thin, Caucasian and Asian (because lewdness is colourblind), please, I implore you: Stop bringing your unrequited sexual fantasies to Thailand (and to Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar). It's demeaning. It's perpetuating. And it's embarrassing.

Conventional wisdom is that this is the market at work. This is not the market at work. This is manipulation of a government system of open-ended mortgage insurance that is poorly supervised. What is going on here is a deluge of hot money from abroad that is creating an artificial, and potentially dangerous real estate bubble.

Thai beauty is that it comes from the inside, out. It is their belief that a restful body and spirit shows on one's face. Makes sense. There's a reason all-night parties, overtime and stress do not result in a pretty glow.
