Thai Bikini Girls

6 gorgeous Thai bikini girls spotted at the pool of the Cape Panwa Hotel shooting a sexy swimsuit fashion show video for the Miss Thailand World contest.

Of course all contestants looked stunning in their bathing suits but only one Thai girl was confident enough to wear a red strapless bandeau bathing suit (second from left). The bathing suit fashion show was held at July 23rd 2010.

These 30 most beautiful Thai girls also tried to boost Phuket's tourism visiting monuments and local craftsmen.

Using the slogan “Be Beautiful for Thai Children Education” added some activities to benefit the Ban Lamsai School before departing back to Bangkok, Thailand.

Kim Kardashian in a bikini

Sexy as ever: Kim Kardashian in a bikini that you can easily buy at Abyss.

Kim is wearing a bandeau bathing suit and since she hasn't the ideal body for a sexy bandeau bikini: the extra neck strap keeps all in place.

When it comes to swimsuits, the bandeau refers to a top that's ideal for sun tanners as it is traditionally worn without any shoulder straps. Since there is only an elastic to make sure the bandeau keeps on covering your boobs, this type of bathing suit top is normally worn by women or juniors with at most B-cups.

However if you are as curvy as Kim Kardashian, you can still strut your stuff in a bandeau bikini or well cut out monokini when it comes with a strap that ties around the neck and down in between the bust. A typical one piece bathing suit is not an ideal choice for a bandeau top, as the garment will constantly pull the top down.

When choosing this type of swimwear, make sure it is a perfect fit without any straps, meaning it doesn't cut in your flesh nor does it slide down immediately. Once that is accomplished and you have a fuller bust, do add the straps and you will look at least as sexy as Kim Kardashian in a bikini.

Monokini Swimwear

My favorite sexy and stylish pick this summer: monokini swimwear to getting lots of admiring looks at the pool and the beach.

Since I have always been in favor for one piece bathing suits, the monokini is actually a sent from haven: it is still a one piece but when you look at me from the back, it is as if I am wearing a normal bikini. Kind of having 2 bathing suit looks for the price of one, how affordably fashionable is that!

As a born Malaysian living in a predominated Muslim country, one always had to be conscious what to wear on the beach. A one piece was a good solution, both to protect yourself from the sun as being acceptable with the norm set by Muslim swimwear:

Muslim Swimwear

Muslim swimwear : still better than jumping in the pool with the clothes you wear (mind you, I am not kidding, some people just jump in the pool here wearing their daily outfit...)

The monokini has become extremely popular in recent years and the reason why is because it has evolved to a playful bathing suit that comes in many styles and coverage. For a beach in Malaysia, better go for as much coverage as possible:

Halter Monokini

This halter monokini from L Space called Fringe could be your best bet. Made out of 80% Nylon / 20% Spandex, you can easily adjust where your plunging v-neck will start by adjusting the top string tied around the neck.

If you want to wear - or for the guys see - skimpier monokinis, then we suggest you frolic the beaches - or dive into the nightlife - of Phuket, Thailand.

Cut Out Monokini

Don't you adore this amazingly cut out monokini from last summers collection of designer Hervé Léger? Monokini swimwear comes in so many styles and cut outs that surely there is one the fits your look.

How hot can you get? Scorching hot... wearing Becca swimwear from our favorite bathing suit designer of 2010 Rebecca Virtue.

Rebecca created this limited monokini edition for Caress and Vogue to showcase your curves and expose your skin to some quite original tan lines after sunbathing in this bathing suit :-)

Please check out Becca bathing suit designs when you are the type of relaxed person who wants a heavy dose of fashion, combined with pleasure, joy and fun.

Deevana Patong Resort

The appeal of the Deevana Patong Resort is its secluded tropical garden with spa offering you tranquility and rejuvenation in the middle of the otherwise overly busy Patong Beach in Phuket, Thailand.

Deevana Patong Resort and Spa

Apart from walking around in the luscious, tropical gardens, I enjoyed the Deevana Patong Resort for its spa. You could guess it: the spa is also located in the gardens with adjacent rejuvenating pools. Ideal for a romantic spa experience with your partner as the Deevana Spa is deigned to offer you seclusion and privacy whilst relaxing outdoors in nature.

An unforgettable natural rejuvenating experience with typical ancient Thai beauty therapies as well as traditional Swedish therapeutic massages, aromatherapy, foot reflexology and even a slimming massage (not that I am in need of one, wink wink...).

Deevana Patong Resort reviews

Deevana Patong Resort reviews

The Deevana Patong Resort reviews range from between very good and excellent, especially in the low season when you manage to upgrade yourself to a superior room with a Jacuzzi :-) Make sure to book in the spa wing and avoid the old and run down garden wing.

However do enjoy the peace and tranquility of the resorts garden if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Patong beach. As anywhere in Thailand, staff is friendly and location is king in Phuket: only a small walk away is the overly well priced May's Restaurant serving delicious local food at equally local prices. The resort's restaurant however serves good Thai food as well.

All in all the Deevana Patong Resort is recommended for a clean, quiet and peaceful stay in otherwise busy and touristy Phuket

Ko Phi Phi Leh

Exploring the hidden secrets in the caves of Ko Phi Phi Leh Island in Thailand is a must do when visiting Phuket or Phi Phi Island.

The only way to enter the hidden treasures inside the famous lime stone rocks of the Phi Phi islands is signing up for a canoe tour. We signed up with Sea Canoe and the journey will only be organized during the low tide, as that's the only time the water is low enough for you to enter the inside of the lime rocks.

Although the weather was cloudy, it is rainy season after all - so actually happy we weren't flushed out by a rain storm-, it is well worth the trip. Each canoe has his own "driver", meaning you just sit back, relax, enjoy the silence of the sea and explore with the eco friendly guides what's inside.

Koh Phi Phi Leh

Who would have imagined to find monkeys inside these Koh Phi Phi Leh hidden lagoons? Mangroves? Crabs and mudskippers? Birds of Prey? Amazing!

Ko Phi Phi Leh Map

Ko Phi Phi Leh and Ko Phi Phi Don are less than 50 km away from both Phuket Island and Krabi town on the west coast of southern Thailand.

Kim Kardashian Monokini

Why does Kim Kardashian look utterly sexy when wearing a monokini?

Because monokinis are designed to draw the attention on the waist, taking away the attention especially from a bigger bottom and any sized top. Being very sexy by showing lots of skin, but in this case not from the bust nor from the butt. Of course they come in all kinds of styles and cuts as well, including a plunging neck towards the belly button or an ever so revealing thong bottom.

Monokini bathing suits look like a normal bikini from the back, but at the front top and bottom are connected. This makes this kind of bathing suit a bit more secure than a bikini when it comes to playing around in the water.

Although strictly spoken monokinis are one piece swimsuits, since they show a lot of flesh, do make sure to put on lots of sun lotion.

Nevertheless more safe in the water, monokinis are mostly to show off in, which explains why celebrities like Paris Hilton, Eva Longoria and Jessica Alba love wearing them. As for curvy women like Kim Kardashian, monokinis are ideal :-)

Thai Bikini

Sexy Thai cover model Sa Woransa became a little more famous when she took off her Thai bikini to only cover her boobs with her hands:

Unlike western women and men who go to Thailand to get a tan (and hopefully don't get sun burned during the process), Asian girls love to not expose their skin wearing skimpy bathing suits or go topless, god forbid.

However, when it comes to beer campaigns in Asia, suddenly you do see Thai girls wearing bikinis like in the 2010 Leo beer calendar:

Phi Phi Leh Island Thailand

Enjoying colourful fishes snorkeling around the idyllic coast line of Phi Phi Leh Island Thailand.

Phi Phi Leh is the smaller of the 2 main Phi Phi Islands. Unlike the bigger Phi Phi Don Island, smaller Phi Phi Leh isn't inhabited. However, it doesn't seem that way as some of the beaches are overly crowded with tourists. All this thanks to the 2000 movie "The Beach" which was filmed on this island and in nearby Phuket.

As you can see in the snorkeling picture, don't try to be sexy snorkeling in a bikini. The sun around Phuket is right above you and the tropical rays will burn your skin in an instant when you aren't using any of the extremely high SPF and waterproofed sun lotions. Only wear swimsuits near the pool or at the popular beaches like Patong Beach.

Much easier and safer wearing a thin wetsuit: it saves you time re-applying sun lotion and keeps your skin fully protected when admiring the fishes in the waters around Phi Phi Leh Island Thailand.
