Our Ducks, Geese, And Native Chickens Farming At Satun, Thailand

By Ianpassion

"Once in your life, you may need a lawyer, a doctor, and a policeman. But in a day, at least three times a day you need a farmer." Said by my father when I was 16. 


Coming from a background of farmers, with lots of animals to care of, and how hard it was to be working under rainy and sunny weather; there was this thinking that time that farming is not my future path.

I asked a friend “Bro, would you like to hike with me in the jungle and trek to the waterfall?” 


“That’s cool. Which waterfall bro?” he replied.

Night Market Manang, Satun, Thailand

By Ianpassion

Manang is one of the most beautiful districts in Satun Province. It is known for its towering mountains, dazzling rivers, turquoise waterfalls, virgin forest, indigenous tribe, and the largest cave in Asia. 


I have stayed in Manang district for 5 years now and have seen its fast development. It used to be a town that if you want to go shopping and pay your bills you need to travel to the city.

Hidden in the village of Ban Papon, Manang, Satun, South of Thailand, there is a museum, furniture display made from roots and trunks of very old and large trees. The said place is called in Thai "Ban Rak Mai" or "Tree Roots House".

Kayaking at Wangsaithong River, Satun, South of Thailand

By Ianpassion 

Wangsaithong river, located in the most forested area of Satun, Langu district, South Thailand, is where you can paddle a kayak for 7-10 kilometers.


Although the river is in Langu district, the road leading in from Hatyai or the central town of Satun is in Manang district. As a result, some travelers believe that the Wangsaithong River is located in the Manang district.

Underground River - Cave Jet Khot @ Manang Satun

By Ianpassion 

When you finally arrived in Manang (Satun Province), you might think that there are no more exciting things you can do, yet the underground river of Tam Jet Khot ( seven curves cave) is waiting for you to be explored. 


During our last visit here with my friends (2015), we were amazed by the spectacular beauty of the untouched tropical nature of this place. It was utterly fantastic, paddling our kayak to the mouth of the cave as entrance heading through inside the underground river - Tam Jet Khot.

Jungle Trekking Satun, South of Thailand I Photos of my Hiking

By Ianpassion 


I love hiking and camping. If you are of the same interest as me, don't hesitate to connect. 


With my 10 years of experience in hiking, climbing, and leading teams in the tropical jungle, I can say that I have acquired knowledge and skills that have made me better equipped for this adventure. 


Long before, when I was at the university, my friends used to call me taga bukid (a mountain boy). At that time, I felt insulted when someone labeled me taga bukid.  However, as the years passed by, I realized that I found the essence of being a mountain boy. It turned out that hiking and camping become one of my passions that I enjoyed during my holiday. With that, I am able to connect people, make friends, and reflect the beauty of nature that is replicating the strongest force-- the LOVE of our Abba Father.

Celebrating My Birthday 2016 | Hiking

By Ianpassion 

The most common way to celebrate our birthday is to have dinner with friends or with family.


I remembered those moments when I was still a child. My parents used to organize a special party for me. Native chickens around our house were always the victims, at least ten slaughtered every birthday event.
