When your body and mind yearn for ‘vitamin sea’, you plunge yourself wholeheartedly into the beauty of nature where the white foam of the turquoise sea laps the stretching sandy beach repeatedly. And Mason Pattaya is where you should be.   Setting the Scene A mere two hours’ drive from downtown Bangkok and I was in a paradise! The ultra-modern architecture of Mason greeted me upon arrival, on par with the professional service of the staff who eagerly managed my belongings and sent them to the appointed villa. The mood and tone of the ambience is second to none, I told myself as we made our way through the cave-like path with the sea and the horizon as the backdrop. Mason is an all-villa resort with only 35 villas in total. Hence, the resort would not be too busy to enjoy at any time. The 150-metre sandy beach was bliss and I could guarantee that this part of Pattaya is tranquil and quiet, while the fun and the happenings are within easy reach at central Pattaya. Sundecks and beanbags are dotted on the beach. I could not wait to hit there at once.   Getting Comfortable With the spirited design aspect of the villa, one has to walk down the stairs from the rooftop in order to reach the entrance of the room. Doing so, the experience opens you to the panoramic view of the ocean meeting the sky at the horizon, while the at-ease private pool laps at your feet. The room was majestic with a lounge area upfront and the comfy vast bed tucked away. The bathroom is designed to be separated from the bedroom and occupy as much space, I would say – at least the customised bath was one of the biggest I ever encountered.  A dilemma hit me hard now as I first planned to unwind on one of the sundecks on the beach, then changed my mind to the private one sitting in front of the bedroom. However, after seeing the bath and the serene pool, I decided that I had to get wet during this relaxation session so I waited no time to plunge myself in.   Dining Options Three food outlets stand bold to treat every palate with the compliment of the sea within sight. Zila Street Bistro & Bar is a casual dining spot where you could choose to unwind with great food both indoors and outdoors. The menu is of great diversity as it features from Thai to Western alike. Our favourite dishes were Pomelo and Crispy Coconut Salad, Vegetable & Edible Flower Roll and Pizza Salami. Make sure you leave some room for dessert since the Banoffee Split – chocolate crust with banana brulee and salted caramel served with vanilla cream – was totally irresistible. To savour the sea to the maximum, Beachside Bar is located right on the beach with trendy chairs on the terrace and a patio for you to sip your preferred drinks. At dusk, move up to Krok-a-Café Espresso Bar to enjoy the sunset

In the 19th century, Vincent Van Gogh created 930 paintings, 1,100 drawing and sketches without gaining recognition for his artistic geniusness throughout his life time. The life of the influential post-impressionist painter has came into the world's spotlight after his passing, and he has been recognised as one of the most respected prodigies since then. His works signify his melancholic emotional and spiritual conditions, developed by the life he had lead, which is filled with suffering, yet they look somewhat romantic in one-off ways. The interactive multimedia "Van Gogh. Life and Art" at the Museum of Digital Art Bangkok (MODA) presents an immersive experience of investigating arts with huge screens to enable you to appreciate the dramatic strokes for which Van Gogh is famous in great details. The exhibition also contains Van Gogh epistolary oeuvre (letters from the artist): quotes about his life and paintings from letters to his brother Theo. For the first time in Bangkok, “Van Gogh. Life and Art” features more than 300 paintings within a 40-minute extraordinary session. The exhibition opens 4 June until 31 December at MODA Gallery, 2nd floor River City Bangkok. Tickets are on sale here. Stay updated on Facebook or www.rivercitybangkok.com

When you are asked about must-visit places in Thailand, it is doubtless that Phuket is one. Rich in culture, embraced by tranquil nature, the tourism section in Phuket had been doing great for decades, with new beautiful hotels and indulgent restaurants constantly emerges. However, with the recent pandemic, the wondrous island had to shut itself down like never before. Now that the situation in Thailand has been unceasingly easing, and with the Phuket International Airport being back in operation, the Phuket Hotels Association, in collaboration with global hospitality branding agency QUO, launches the "Imagine Phuket" campaign to help revive the island's charming liveliness and to invite discerning travelers to comfortably unwind in Phuket again. The campaign aims to prompt people of how Phuket was their ideal vacation with everything they need, and it still is. The initiative enables island hotels to come together with one voice and one message. Each property will be given the creative resources to personalize videos, images and logos with their own branding, creating bespoke versions of the campaign’s inspiring message. By reaching the combined audiences of 75 participating hotels in the private sector, there is the rare opportunity for authentic, large-scale virality. Check out the introductory video of the campaign below, and stay tuned for more from the campaign! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GospREAcZ2Y   Open photo by Sookyung An from Pixabay

With over 3,000 religious monuments across the lush green plain of Bagan, the ancient city manifests a sublime panorama to be witnessed once in a lifetime. Being there, even for a short period of time, gives me goosebumps just by imagining how comfortably spectacular it was back when it flourished.   BAGAN IN BRIEF The Kingdom of Pagan is considered to be the pioneer of Burmese culture. Situated on the first land of the country, Bagan became the capital and administrative hub of the kingdom from the 9th century, and unceasingly flourished until the 13th century. Under the reign of King Anawrahta (1044 – 1077), the Kingdom of Pagan was getting more glorious each day – Burmese ethnicity, as well as the lands that would later form present-time Myanmar, were unified, and Theravada Buddhism became widely practised in the kingdom. Being an ardent Buddhist, he built multitudinous temples and stupas all over the city. Even after his reign, the successive kings kept building more of them, time after time. Once upon a time, the Bagan plain embodied more than 10,000 religious constructions, and most of the significant sites were built in the 12th century   A NIGHT IN BAGAN Spending only a night in Bagan is, frankly, not a good idea. I have to do so because of a tight schedule. Nevertheless, the short-lived stay in Bagan turns astonishingly eventful. Upon arrival in Mandalay, I travel straight to the bus station; not knowing that ahead is a seven-hour big adventure on a 19-seater bus with no air conditioner. I later find that this is the bus for locals after it departs, and I encounter several of them during the long hours travelling.I thought I could take the long hours watching movies on my phone, but it turns out that the whole way is too bumpy to do anything at all. We stop at a completely local diner for a while, with, again, no language I can read. I have to show the waiter the picture of the simplest menu – omelette. It is almost midnight, and I have just arrived at the hostel with no idea of how to travel around tomorrow. Ostello Bello Bagan hostel, located in the New Bagan area, turns out to play a bigger role for me than just accommodation, as they give the best advice on everything, and even provide a guided trip to significant temples in Bagan. With the air-conditioned taxi charging many dollars, I wonder how budget travellers (I’m obviously one) get around here. “Just rent an electric bike. It’s easy. Everyone does that,” says the young concierge. I am worried, as I don’t even drive in my hometown.   EXPLORE BAGAN IN SIX HOURS To catch the first light of the day, I leave the hostel on my e-bike in the half-light, following the traditional paper map provided by the hostel. The concierge is right – it’s easy. In no time, I reach Dhammayazika Pagoda – one of the few spots where people can still see the sunrise. Temple climbing

As a Bangkok-born who has always lived here, there is something about this city that never ceases to amaze me. One of my most favourite spot to re-visit from time to time is Pranakorn Area. Samranraj is one of the districts in the area, famous for old houses and street foods, as well as one-off lifestyles. The cushy fusion between Thai, Chinese, Indian, and Western influences of the district is dulcet in the way no other place is. Chef Bank, a native of the area, who is the chef at Samranraj Cuisine, narrates the charming way of living around here through his finesse in culinary arts and impressive knowledge of Thai ingredients. His cuisine fuses cultures with flavours, as if he is taking you on a journey in Thailand from the northernmost part to the south, while making a stop at Samranraj district to peek at the beautiful cultural blend. At Samranraj Cuisine Restaurant, I get to try the dinner set in a casual yet exquisite setting. The semi-open kitchen makes the dinnertime even more enjoyable. In the southern part of Thailand, there are a large number of Muslim people, and they add their unique flavours to various dishes, one of them being “Salad Khaek”. On the Samranraj Rice Crackers, the sweet-and-sour zest of the salad is added to chunks of fresh crabmeat and culantro from the North, creating a succulent sensation over the crispy rice from the Central region. For Wild Hokkaido Scallop Som Tum Ceviche, when common dish like Som Tum is made extravagant, it feels like home, with cutting-edge redecoration. Topped on papaya salad are jumbo-sized fresh scallops. Instead of simply adding chilli to the salad, the chef transforms it into jelly, so the whole experience is marvelously textured. Vegan-friendly Banana Flower Salad is utterly nutritious, while being rich in flavours. Pomelo adds juiciness to the dish so gorgeously. And then it is time for the mains. Poached and Seared Foei Gras & Duck is a seamless, stunning blend of Western and Chinese flavours. Instead of cooking common Dong Po Rou, duck and foei gras are poached in Po Rou water, so that the unique herbal aroma seeps thoroughly in the meat. The sided mulberry chutney complements the dish so well. When savouring everything together in one bite, it gives unexpectedly heavenly senses. Thai Wagyu Beef brings the best charcoal-grilled beef from Sakon Nakhon to the plate, peppered with ground roasted rice, making each piece crispy on the outside, and juicy on the inside. To reveal the famous Isaan-style flavours, spicy “jaew” dipping is served alongside. I am usually not a fan of lamb, but when I try Charcoal Lamb Cutlet Massaman Curry, I must say this can easily be my favourite. This is a great combination of Chinese, Indian, and Western tastes, crystallising the charming cultural diversity of the district. The tender lamb and rich-in-flavour Massaman curry goes brilliantly with one another. After having had a long delectable time, dessert is the way to say sweet goodbye. Jasmine Panna Cotta Ginger Jelly is topped with
