While travelling through Thailand we were lucky enough to hear through the grapevine about this "Hidden Temple" (also known as Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat Phrachomklao Rachanusorn) up in the mountains of Northern Thailand, where white stupas scatter across the mountain peaks in an unbelievable fashion.

It almost didn't sound real. but after doing some research we discovered how to get to this temple and decided to make the 3 hour scooter drive to try and find it. Once finding the bottom of the temple we took an extremely steep jeep ride up the mountain to the start of the hike. The mountain itself is covered in different variations of gongs that visitors should ring for good luck while climbing to the top. Needless to say, the day probably gave us good luck for the year.

When we finally reached the summit it was difficult to process what we were seeing. The stupas sitting atop the jagged mountain peaks were a sight neither of us had ever seen before and truly one of a kind. Some of the stupas had us scratching our heads as to how they were even constructed in the first place because they would be so difficult to access on foot.

This hidden gem is not a tourist destination yet and we were two of the few people on the mountain that day. It was peaceful, spiritual and a unique experience neither of us will forget. Definitely make a stop here if you find yourself in Northern Thailand!

Enjoy!

Hey all,

Our trip to Vietnam wouldn’t have been compete without making a stop to see the magical Ha Long Bay. The nearly 2000 limestone islands are covered in rain forest and surrounded by emerald waters as far as the eye can see. We found a nice little secluded area to kayak around and take in the vast silence, occasionally interrupted by the sound of a monkey howl swinging from branch to branch. We highly recommend making a stop here if you’re in Northern Vietnam, but if you’re doing longer than a day trip, just make sure to thoroughly research your cruise company!

Enjoy!

While travelling through Thailand we made a stop in Phuket. Seeing how it was closer to the end of our trip and relatively cheap, we decided to find a nice private Air B&B with an infinity pool overlooking the ocean in a newer developed area filled with high end restaurants that had no customers. Needless to say, we took advantage of this. A quick 40 minute scooter ride to the other side of the city brought us to the top of a mountain with the famous Big Buddha, which we recommend anyone sees if stopping in Phuket! Standing 45m tall and covered in white jade marble tiles, this monument is quite the spectacle to see. We arrived just before sunset which lead to some epic drone shots.

Enjoy!
