I’ve always loved traveling. Ever since I was a kid. Now, as an older kid, I’ve been blessed with an opportunity to live a dream. So what is it that I love so much about traveling? I could throw out a bunch of cliches about why it’s so fun. But the truth is I can’t explain my passion for travel. Maybe it’s a gene passed on from my father who loved traveling too. Could there be a wayfaring gene?
There is no way for me to define such a feeling. Is it the freedom? Most definitely. And some feelings aren’t meant to be explained but explored. After being cooped up in NYC, a city that I love dearly, I feel that traveling helps me find balance.
Wayfaring Soul is an outlet for me to share what I’ve learned while traveling and living in Thailand. And I thank you for taking part in my journey. If you have any questions, feel free to email me or leave a comment!
Things to Do in Doha The State of Qatar gave me my first taste of the middle east. It’s a territory I have never been to. But always wanted to visit. While searching for things to do in Qatar here on the internet, I was surprised to see that there’s… well not much to do, […]
The Emerald Cove – A Five Star Hotel on Klong Prao Beach Koh Chang A few weeks ago my wife and I drove down to Koh Chang, a popular island destination located in the gulf of Thailand’s Trat province. We were excited because we had booked the 5 star rated Emerald Cove Hotel for 4 nights. […]
Starting a Café Business Could Be One Way You Can Enjoy Living in Thailand… I know many foreigners plan on opening a business in Thailand don’t know what to start at first. Coffee shops or cafés are a good choice because of its simplicity. I mean who doesn’t know what coffee is? Starting a small […]
Nice Little Hotel in Seoul – Not Expensive but Not Cheap Either The Nine Tree Hotel is located in Myeongdong. One of my favorite fun neighborhoods in Seoul. Not only can I find great Korean restaurants, but also the nicest affordable hotels in South Korea’s capital city of Seoul. I found Nine Tree Hotel while doing […]
Have an Ant Problem in Thailand – Here’s What Worked for Me My wife and I recently bought a home in Bangkok. One thing that I thought I would never have to deal with is an ant problem. So I searched around for different ways on how to get rid of ants. There are quite a […]
Digging Into Malaysia’s Famous “Chilli Pan Mee” I came across my first ever bowl of Chilli Pan Mee when I went on a “Shutter Therapy” with Robin Wong. That was a few years ago. Since then I have made it a mission to get myself a nice bowl of traditional Malaysian Chilli Pan Mee in […]
And a Much Anticipated Visit to Suwon’s Fried Chicken Street (수원 통닭거리) After my first ever Suwon day trip from Seoul last year I was so excited to go back as soon as I could. As much as I enjoyed exploring Suwon’s Hwaseong Palace (화성행궁) and its magnificent fortress, I missed out on a place I […]
The Cicada Market – A Place You’ll Enjoy Even When You Hate Shopping… But that’s just me. I’m a big grump when it comes to shopping. However I do love taking a stroll through any of Thailand’s famous night markets like Bangkok’s Talad Liab Duan. And certainly around Hua Hin’s Cicada Market. Now there really isn’t that […]
I’m Going to Regret Reviewing the Escape Hua Hin Hotel… Why? Because there’s a chance there will be more people looking to book this hotel and I won’t be able to get a room. That’s how much I like the Intercontinental Hua Hin Resort looming beside it. I’ve been staying at the Escape Hua Hin frequently […]
I often travel to Singapore because it’s not far away from Thailand. But like what most people say, Singapore ain’t such a big place. And as much as I hate to say, not much to do for a middle aged traveler like me. There’s Universal Studios Singapore. But even then most average S’poreans will tell […]
Twice a year I make a trip to Malaysia’s capital city Kuala Lumpur, usually staying for a week. I don’t go there for business. And I don’t go there for leisure. I just go to KL to eat. Kuala Lumpur is a easy 2 hours flight from Bangkok, Thailand. With another 30 minutes worth of travel time […]
