I can’t believe it’s almost a year ago that we traveled through Thailand. So many impressions, such a great time. I still have so many memories in my mind and I want to share some of them with you in a short blogpost with a few pictures.
Scroll down for some informations :)
We started our trip in Bangkok. Or how I prefer to call it: CRAZY BANGKOK ;) It is really a city of contrast, dirty and clean, colourful and dark, friendly and scary. But I love Bangkok and for sure I’m coming back!
A few days later we left Bangkok to go to the beach. Next stop: KOH TAO. I have no words for the beauty of this island. White beaches, turquoise blue water, fishes, beautiful nature. We enjoyed it a lot! :) If you’re going to Koh Tao, be sure to visit the Intouch Resort, a wonderful hotel with the yummiest restaurant, directly on the beach.
After Koh Tao we hopped to Koh Phanghan, a bigger island next to it. Unfortunately rain crossed our path and the beach wasn’t that clean (We preferred the pool). Nevertheless, it is also a nice island.
After spending some days at Koh Phangan, we went to the Nr 1 island in Thailand, Koh Phi Phi. Everywhere you can read that this is the most wonderful island in the whole country and we were really excited. But reality seemed a bit different. In the center it was very dirty, loud and there were so so many tourists. Paradise is something else, isn’t it? We decided to go to another beach of the island and it was quite the opposite. Calm, clean, pure nature – paradise :)
A few german guys gave us a godd advise: We should visit ‘The Beach’ very early in the morning, because then we could be alone on the beach. And it was the best advice we got so far.
We enjoyed it all alone (except two boat drivers) and it was just magical.
Next stop: Krabi. We had a nice hotel and explored the city with a scooter – lotsa fun :)
A short stop at the Khao Sok National Park.
The last days we spent again in Bangkok. The big chatuchak market was on our to do list. We explored it a whole day and we haven’t see everything. You can buy everything there, really everything.
During a boat trip through the canal of Bangkok, we have seen some destroyed houses and shocking ways to live. And quite next to all the old houses (or ruins) were golden temples. As I said, city of contrast.
This granny was too funny, we couldn’t stop to laugh :D
Thailand is really a journey worth and we had a great time. I could talk hours about it. If you want to have more informations about our trip to Thailand and a few do’s and dont’s, don’t hesitate to ask me :)
On the plan for this year: Sri Lanka and South Africa :) More to come soon!!
Lots of Love, Julia
