THAILAND TRAVELPOST

Morning!:)

I promised I would tell you some more about my Thailand trip sooooo… Here we go! 

When you wanted to make a backpack trip for the first time, I would recommend this country for sure! It’s the ideal destination (also for experienced backpackers!) What I did was visiting some of the highlights that you shouldn’t miss while visiting this beautiful country, but I also got off the beaten track to discover the real Thailand.

First, I experienced the chaotic life in Bangkok by tuktuk (OMG crazy vehicle), by longtail boat, by bike ( You should do this too!! I would recommend the bikeride at Co van Kessel, Dutch company) and ofcourse by feet.

After that I’ve been to the impressive bridge over the river Kwai, the museum and the graves of the prisoners of war. I think it’s good to see some history too and to realize how amazing it is that we live in a free world now. I’ve also been to the ancient capital Ayuthaya and to the paradise Island: Ko Phangan!

Then I traveled to the north of Thailand by night train (such an experience, you should do this too for a whole new sleeping experience..well…sleeping, you probably don’t sleep that much haha). I also walked through the Thai jungle to meet the traditional hill tribes in remote villages. I will never forget my night at the jungle sleeping in between the biggest spiders and scorpions and I’ve ever seen. Brrrr. I must admit I was a little afraid. Especially when the guide told us (just before midnight) that there where “ONLY” 3 tigers in this area…! I really love tigers but at that moment…It scares the hell outta me.

Oooooh and and and I hugged and nourished elephants! I went to the Elephant Retirement parc in Chiang Mai where mistreated elephants are taken care of by locals and other volunteers. An experience you don’t want to miss! So when you ever got the chance to go there: GO! It’s definetly a once in a lifetime experience! Those animals are really cute and lovely! It’s a wonderful place! I gave them food and I was swimming with them!! And you know we did some cuddling hihi.

What also needs to be mentioned it the floating hotel where I slept for one night. A whole floating bungalow! It was great! The River Kwai hotel gave me this perfect holiday feeling! After this unique experience I got to the floating market and to the train market. Both very touristic places but still worth a visit. If you search for the train market on youtube you’ll see how crazy this market is set up on the rails and how everybody is moving when there’s a train coming. Crazy place for a market!!

Last but not least I want to tell you something about the Erawan National Parc. Why? Because it gave me that kinda Centerparcs feeling. It was like I was walking through centerparcs but then..real life. This is basically one big national parc with waterfalls at seven levels. You can climb the hills (2 km) and swim in the different waters. Oh and beware of Dr. Fish kinda Fish in the water that will definitely going to nibble/suck your feet (for free ;p) while dip a toe in the water hahaha. Perfect place to dream away.
