Kevin & Eniko Hart Prove Thailand Is The Instagram-Worthy Vacation You Didn't Know You Needed

Life & Travel

Every now and then, all of us just want to pack some underwear, hop on a plane, and head to a faraway island where your only obligation is to be Black and soak up the sun with the ones you love. Kevin and Eniko Hart's crew just proved that Thailand is the place to do exactly that.


If you're looking to add a new location to your list of places to kick off your shoes and relax your feet, look no further. In a series of Instagram stories that make us wish we could ditch our responsibilities and head to the East Asian country and its overflowing abundance of beautiful beaches right now, Kevin and Eniko gave us an inside look at real life #SquadTravelGoals on their recent voyage to Thailand.

The couple, joined by a group of close friends like Will Packer, and Kevin's trainer, Justin Train, stayed at a luxury Resort that starts at $7,000 on the secluded island of Koh Yao Noi.

The island, which attracts a much smaller crowd than other vacation destinations in Thailand, is known for having beautiful beaches and lowkey nightlife, so if you're looking for a zen AF yoga class for you and your squad, Koh Yao Noi is the plug, sis. But if you're anything like Eniko and Kevin's crew, you'll probably find yourself turning up on a boat in the middle of the ocean.

If after reading this, you're looking for an authentic Thailand experience and don't happen to have $10,000 lying around to drop on an Instagram-worthy vacation in the near future, xoNecole has a guide on how to plan a trip to Thailand and capture some ridiculously dope views (and memories) while you're there.

Visit The Floating Market 

​Full of color, fun, and authentic Thai flavor, the floating markets in Thailand are said to be must-see tourist attraction. Selling souvenirs, snacks, and sweets, there are a number of markets in Thailand, but some of the most visited are the ones in Bangkok.

Embrace Your Primal Nature At Kho Phi Phi Don (Monkey Island)

Cute but dangerous is the name of the game when it comes to the monkeys on Phi Phi island. The island, known for its white beaches and limestone cliffs, has no shortage of wildlife and is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Thailand.

Get Wild At Tiger Kingdom in Phuket 

Have you ever wanted to take a selfie with a wild animal that could savagely attack you at any moment (but probably won't)? Head to Phuket to the Tiger Kingdom to make that lifelong dream come true and help create sustainable living conditions for these kitties in the process.

Make Memories With An Elephant in Chiang Mai 

Elephants are dying all over the world, y'all; but the elephant sanctuaries in Thailand are doing their part to prevent as many mastodon-related fatalities as possible. The ethical elephant rescue centers are located in Chiang Mai, Pattaya, and Phuket, where visitors can feed and play with the animals while helping to raise money for better veterinary care and living conditions for these gentle giants.

Watch The Sunset At Pai Canyon

Pai Canyon is not for the faint of heart, and has a slope that is nearly three hours steep. The canyon features a rare, panoramic view of the sky at sunset and has vantage points that are to die for. No seriously, be careful. It's kind of dangerous.

Take in The Magic At Wat Arun 

Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of The Dawn is located in Bangkok, and is among one of the most visited tourist attractions in Thailand. Wat Arun is considered one of the most beautiful Buddhist temples in the country.

When I was 19, I lost my father, the only caretaker I'd known my entire life.

Growing up in Brooklyn, NY in the '80s, it was common for black children to be raised by drug-addicted parents. My mother abandoned my sister and I while succumbing to her addiction to crack cocaine. But my father, he stayed. And that man loved me fiercely for the years we had, while battling his own addiction to heroin. Despite his own pain, he took care of me. Losing him is still the worst pain I've ever felt in my life.
