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.

So, if you've been rocking with this site for several years now, you might vaguely recall an article that I wrote, a couple of years back entitled, "Why You Need To Grieve Your Past Relationship". The bottom line was, if you don't make the time to go through the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance — even when it comes to the ending of a romantic relationship, you could 1) mistake a lack of thorough and proper grieving for still loving someone and/or 2) prolong the process of healing, so that you can actually move forward.

We all know that advocacy for inclusion and equality should be year-round, since we all have to be our fullest selves all day every day. Identity is a key element of doing that, and for LGBTQ+ professionals, this can include the question of coming out at work. Some may wonder whether their personal business is, well, anybody's business at work, while others might want to feel safe in the office being out, loud, and proud. Either way, coming out in the workplace is indeed an issue that not only must be addressed, but addressed appropriately.

Love is beautiful and social media is a wonderful way to showcase and spread it. However, many times it's the content with a bit of controversy or drama tied to it that gets all the double taps. But as my father once told me, "It's fine to seek drama in your art and interests, but love should make you happy and feel peace." When he said that, it stuck with me. For a long time, I think I sought out excitement in my relationships and that can lead to a lot of unhappiness or unhealthy situations.
