Hello there my fellow travelers,
I went to this beautiful country 2 years ago and I loved every part of it. Since it was a family vacation, I didn’t have a very aggressive itinerary. You can read my blog post on 3 Days in Bangkok which has details about things to do there. For the rest of my Thailand trip read along.
Couple of tips:
- Bargaining is quite common in Thailand. Make sure you check with a number of places before booking your activities.
- You can always book “things to do” once you reach Thailand than doing it online as it turns out to be cheaper.
- Carry your own bottled water. The country is very hot and humid.
- Carry lot of sunscreen and a floppy hat. The sun can be very strong.
I stayed here for 2 days.
Drove here from Bangkok and reached by noon. Pretty much explored the town and hung around in restaurants in bars. This town totally reminds me of Key West. It’s a small beach town with cute bars and restaurants. Towards the end of the strip there is a small beach.
I took the Aa Nang and the 4 island tour on day 2. This was so much fun. They basically pick you up from the hotel in a shuttle and take you to the beach from where you’re put on a speedboat to go to the Islands. The scenery on the way is breathtaking. They stopped at one of the Islands for a buffet lunch and then we went snorkeling after. My favourite part of this tour was kayaking inside the caves. This was a very unique experience.
I stayed here for 2 days as well. This is a fun beach town. Pretty much all I did here was hang on the beach, eat, walk around. It was extremely hot when I was visiting and I do recommend staying hydrated at all times to deal with the heat. The beach here is called Patong beach and was full of tourists like myself. There are a bunch of small cafe’s and bars to hangout at in Bangla road.
Here are a few more pictures from my trip:
That’s all for now. Thank you for stopping by and reading my post. Do post your comments if you have any questions and I’ll be happy to answer them. Have a great day.
