The following is an excerpt from I of the Sun: A Journey into Southeast Asia and the Heart of Human Consciousness by Richard Arthur. The Cambodia/Vietnam border.

Facing The Feces Factor: Tasting My First Cup Of Kopi Luwak Coffee

Thursday, March 27, 2014

My first cup of Kopi Luwak coffee, sometimes better known as “cat poo coffee” or the rarest beverage in the world, was a memorable introduction into the highly envious world of extreme luxury, though this tasting occurred far outside the confines of the dining room of a fine-dining restaurant in Hong Kong or New York […]

An Attempt To Express Thailand By Image

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

“The bird has an honor that is missing from man. Its song is mournful, alas, man is trapped, but the bird is free according to natural law.” With quotations like that, you can bet you’re not in for the typical travel video. “Thailand: In the Garden of the Dragon” comes from New Zealand-based video maker […]

Paper Lanterns Being Released Into The Sky In Thailand

Monday, February 24, 2014

Loi Krathong (or Loy Krathong/Loy Kratong) is a festival in Thailand that takes place on the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month, where thousands of little, candlelit floats are let go onto rivers and other waterways as offerings to the river spirits.

A Sunday Afternoon Stroll Through Hell

Monday, February 24, 2014

When your Thai landlord offers to take you to lunch on a Sunday afternoon, you don’t expect to end up in Hell. I had envisioned a casual afternoon of eating spicy papaya salad and having comical conversations through broken English and basic Thai with Khunjai. She is an older, rotund woman whose apartment I rented […]

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

This stunner featuring Myanmar (Burma) comes to us from Singaporean student Kevin Ng Jia Quan, who trekked to the Southeast Asian country with his Canon 5D Mark III (and 24-105mm lens) in tow, along with his Glidecam HD2000 for all those pretty Steadicam-like shots.

The Spice Of Balinese Life: Notes From A Cooking Class In Ubud, Bali

Sunday, September 29, 2013

I am seated upon a bamboo mat on the ground, notebook in hand and appetite in tow. We have just returned to our lovely host home after an early-morning market excursion to purchase the necessities for our cooking lesson. Bundles of fresh tuna, ever-so-hideous jackfruit and ruby red tomatoes are just a few of the […]

Is It Possible To Actually Enjoy Bali? (Here’s How)

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Full disclosure: I’ve never been to Bali. It’s not that I haven’t been in the general vicinity, or have had the chance to go there over other destinations that are roughly the same distance from New York, but I’ve got to admit, it’s quickly become one of the few places in the world where my […]

6 Clubs To Rock To In East Asia

Monday, July 8, 2013

Okay, you can be honest with me. Spit it out. You did not come halfway across the world for this, how they call it, “Banana Pancake Trail”? I know exactly how you feel. I can tell how much you would like to throw a chair at that guy who’s mesmerizing a full table of other […]

A Lesson In Laid-Back Travel On Cambodia’s Mekong Discovery Trail

Sunday, April 28, 2013

I’m a great planner — an aspect of my personality so ingrained that it rarely faded during 10 months on the road. Even removed as I was from the rigours of Western life, away from the myriad rules and regulations that simply don’t apply in other parts of the world, the need to strategize remained […]
