Thailand was the first stop on my travels, I always wanted to go and then decided one day to just do it.
Since then I have fallen in love with Thailand and visited three times! It’s such a wonderful country with smiling locals, tasty food, towering temples and beautiful beaches. Thailand has it all and it’s definitely one to tick off the bucket list!
I first visited Thailand in 2000 on a solo trip and I was a bit apprehensive. I needn’t have worried; the land of smiles certainly lived up to its name! Sadly, I couldn’t make the Thai baht stretch and I had to return home. Three years later I returned, this time travelling by overnight buses and sleeper trains from the North all the way down to the Islands in the South. My favourite islands were Ko Phi Phi with its dramatic scenery and Ko Lipe where my husband proposed at sunrise!
I had such a great time when I visited Thailand and think it should defnintely be on everyone’s list of places to go. The food is amazing and differs from one end of the country to another. The scenery is breathtaking and takes a lot to be able to put the camera down! For me, what makes this country so wonderful are the people. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, and want you to have a great time in their country. Leaving Thailand was very difficult as it felt like home for the time I spent there.
Home to many cultures and traditions, Thailand seems a world away from life as we know it. Here are some tips, useful info and etiquette to get you started!
