If you ever find yourself with an itch to leave your desk job and like, never come back, I highly recommend disappearing away into Southeast Asia. It’s such a stunning place with so many different cultures and landscapes and wonderful food and to properly do it right, you need to be leaving something behind with out a…
This past Monday, people from around the world aimed their cameras upwards in hopes of catching a glimpse of the “blood moon” lunar eclipse. But as this 19th century manuscript shows, it’s a phenomenon that’s been chronicled long before the advent of camera phones and telescopic lenses.
Somewhere in the outskirts of the Thai capital, unused airplanes stored in a private field have become homes for three poor families. This is the darker side of the most populous city in Thailand.
What clothes, gadgets, and backpack does a photographer and writer for an adventure travel site rely on when he’s going to Asia and traveling light? This is my pared down adventure-storytelling kit, and how it performed.
Things to pack for your next Thailand vacation: passport and visa; a few swimsuits, if you're a beach person; comfy shoes for sightseeing; some sort of translation guide;
underboobs for selfie-taking. Just kidding! Leave those underboobs at home.
Last year, we learned about Bangkok's New World Mall, among the most dystopian places on the planet. It's a shopping mall in the middle of one of the world's more tumultuous cities that was abandoned nearly 20 years ago. After a roof collapse, the mall flooded, and a population of fish thrived in newly formed ponds.…
After adventuring in some of the world's harshest environments, we went to Thailand to thaw out and drink from coconuts. We wouldn't be laying on beaches though. We were there to experience some of the best sport climbing in the world.
Koh Phi Phi, off Thailand's western coast is basically one big frat party. Gross. For less than $100, we rented a private long boat and escaped for a snorkeling and climbing adventure. You can do that too, here's how.
I don't really know what's going on in this video: It starts out with a group of people gathered around an object which then cuts to people fleeing the circle because mad men are lighting the object which then turns into a thick smoke monster threatening Earth and then out pops the coolest rocket thing ever,…
The government of Thailand does not approve of your town's crappy Thai restaurant. In fact, it's so upset about the global scourge of tasteless Tom Yum soup and dank drunken noodles that's spending $1 million to combat it. A large portion of that money has gone into the development of an electronic tongue.
Bamboo rockets are really cool. They are wheels with a central rod full of solid fuel and nozzles that spin into the sky until they stop and fall back to Earth on a parachute. Or explode. It's a big thing in Thailand—so big that they celebrate festivals to watch them fly and broadcast them on TV.
The skyscraper index tells us that tall buildings and the market are closely correlated—and the unlucky ones being built during a catastrophic economic crisis run the risk of remaining incomplete forever. Such was the case with Sathorn Unique.
If you've ever looked at Instagram's explore tab, then you've undoubtedly seen a bevy of most liked photos originating from kids in Thailand. And as it turns out, the most popular location to tag Instagram photos this year came from the Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok. After that it was some mall in Bangkok, followed…
What's the first thing you crave when you're afraid a tsunami might be headed straight for you? The safety of your family? Peace with God? How about fried chicken? KFC sure thought natural disaster was a great way to sell.
The film itself is only part of the movie-going experience. There's also the smell of fresh popcorn, the hushed murmer of the crowd as the lights go down, the smell of the sea air, the gentle lapping of the waves—wait, what?
AppleInsider noticed something peculiar about some build-to-orders iMacs; they went from a shipping estimate of 1-3 days to 5-7 weeks. Specifically, the delay affects any iMac that is equipped with a 2TB hard drive. What's going on?
We've all said things we don't really mean in text messages. But when a retired Thai truck driver sent an SMS that insulted his king, he got more than he bargained for. Twenty years more, in fact.
I don't want to make light of a tragedy because the floods in Thailand have been worse than imaginable. The flooding has killed over 500 people, caused $5 billion in damage and has been ongoing since mid-summer. It's a sad, sad state of life. But instead of giving up, the people of Thailand are adapting. And it's…
This isn't the teeth of a machine, the chainmail shirt your cousin uses for larping, or the DNA sequence of Justin Bieber's love child.
Architizer is a blog dedicated to the past, present and future of architectural design. They scour the internet finding the best/coolest/weirdest structures people crawl around in. Today they look at the makeshift homes of Thailand flood victims.
