Pretend until you get there.
Homeboys and girls, sawasdee! This week, we are on the virtual couch sailing to Southeast Asia and the smiles to stop the heart of Thailand. Explore with live beach streams, Pad Thai cooks and beach cocktail classes. (There is a quarantini joke somewhere, but someone got stuck in cocktail classes a little early and literally … blocking rules / airport rules, right?).
No passport is needed, only passion. (And Wi-Fi). #PauseTheAdventure
Hit the beach
They say that if you watch, time passes more slowly. I hope we chasing this live stream from Koh Samui beach it will not affect how quickly we can travel again. So peaceful that you can hear a coconut drop, experience Lamai beach in the most beautiful and deserted way. Occasionally, with a dog.

Organize a full moon party
Human beings have loved the moon for millennia. We are sure that the ancient Egyptians also covered themselves with neon paint and danced barefoot on the beach. On the next full moon (June 5), have your own Koh Phangan party. (Aka, drink SangSom on your skimpies in a video call).
Learn to cook

A rabbit hole in Thailand, if any, get lost in the virtual adventures and online exhibitions of Google arts and culture. Explore everything from aerial views of Chiang Mai's tea plantations to historical orientations of the ancient capital of Siam, Ayutthaya.
Find your Zen
One foot in the mad and the other in calm, Thailand is a yin and yang travel lesson. However, for every wild party on the beach at sunset, there is also an icy sunrise shavasana; so if you need to relax after all this, plan your next trip six zen places seriously.
