Where did you choose to go and why?
Yasir Hussain: I travelled to Koh Samui. It’s a beautiful resort island in Thailand and it was an easy choice for a spontaneous getaway because it’s quite simple to get a Thai travel visa.
Who did you travel with?
YH: Check out my social media; I have been documenting my trip thoroughly!
Tell us about sites no one should miss out on?
YH: It’s an island and that’s why every view is breath taking! The tip I can give is to not blink, because you wouldn’t want to close your eyes to the mesmerising beauty there.
What are some spots for a night out?
YH: [Laughs] You would have to be there to really know!
What can you do over there to relax and unwind?
YH: They have all kinds of water sports and massages. I’m not a big fan of massages, however. I don’t even get why we would need so many massages all the time… what is this stress or pain that is not leaving us? [Laughs]. They also have great dedicated areas there for yoga and some very purposeful kicking back!
YH: Like I said, just keep your eyes open.
What did you pack?
YH: Casual and light clothes, PJs and night suits, and joggers!
What was your favourite meal/restaurant?
YH: All the food there was very good.
What was the biggest highlight of your trip/most memorable moment?
YH: The trip to the smaller islands was very special.
Favourite shopping destination?
YH: Night markets.
YH: Waterproof phone cover, camera, iPad, and glasses.
