KOH SAMUI - World Class Acupuncture
Highly qualified acupuncture specialist in Koh Samui, Thailand if you’re looking for any sort of treatment. It’s conveniently located right outside of Fisherman’s Village and is the only spot on the Island of its kind. Super impressive.
For this pin I’m over here right at the mouth of fisherman’s village but I better get over there where you are. Okay, here I am and look we’re not here to get high at the catholic cafe cannabis we might put a pin on there one day but no I’m gonna tell you where to get some acupuncture treatment because you never know when you might need acupuncture. I used to live in Korea back in the 90s the only time I’ve ever had acupuncture in my whole life, crazily enough I had a three-day case of the hiccups and I used to teach at a high school over in Korea back when I was in my 20s and one day the principal of the high school wanted to cure me of my hiccups and so he took me into his office and he started poking me with all the needles and gave me acupuncture so yes! you never know when you’re going to need it and if you’re on Samui and you need acupuncture you can come here to the “Sadanan Acupuncture & Wellness clinic” heavily recommended by locals who live here and if you read the reviews there’s people that say it’s on par with acupuncturists in san Francisco and New York and really really top places so let’s go in and see if we can meet the doctor and hear more about what services she offers in here. All right, so we’re inside now and she said the doctor’s down, this way when you come in you there’s a diagnostics room here, this is where they’ll kind of figure out what you need and then this place is really nice really clean. Apparently we just bumped into some people who were finishing up and apparently all the chinese people that come to Samui swear by this place and there’s even one guy who comes like every single day so shout out to that guy but the doctor speaks mandarin, speaks Thai, speaks amazing English and I think we’re going to meet her.

Bangkok, Thailand has some of the most epic shopping anywhere on earth. Many of these massive mall complexes would put their counterparts in Europe or North America to shame. The Holy Grail of Bangkok shopping is IconSiam. This is a newly built architectural masterpiece located right on the east side of the Chao Praya river across from central Bangkok. It has anything and everything that you could think of. Whether you’re looking to purchase something from a luxury brand like Gucci, Chanel, Fendi, Rolex, etc. or simply want a basic Tee from Uniqlo, this place has it all. You can even buy a Ferrari right in the mall if you’re looking to spend some serious coin. There’s also an epic food court on the ground level of IconSiam which features all sorts of tasty Thai treats that you can get at street food prices. One thing that’s actually quite common across many Bangkok shopping centres is to have at least one or two food courts that act more like Thai markets than they do a typical eating area. The food in these areas are both tasty and cheap. The reason that these exist is because the developers or owners of these massive shopping complexes want to drive as much foot traffic as possible inside of their real estate. So, they give significant rent breaks to the vendors that would normally have to compete for space in an outdoor market. What ends up happening is that residents find a specific vendor or restaurant that they like, and make it a weekly routine to go and enjoy some food from that specific location, inside of whatever mall it exists in. The food courts inside of these malls actually become attractions on their own, resulting in more foot traffic inside of the mall.
