I love Thailand, I love Thailand. Have I ever told you I love Thailand! I’m actually not sure how to start this, as I want to tell you everything all at once. Thailand has everything to offer for every type of traveller, it is luxurious, peaceful, hectic, cultural, historical, respectful, crazy, scenic and much more. My Thailand experience was what we travel agents call a multicentre with a stay in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket. For Bangkok we crammed in so much in our 2 full days in the city… Grand Palace, reclining Buddha, floating market, street shopping, night markets, Bangkok nightlife and fantastic meals out, plus a luxury city hotel with a great spa to get over the flight. It was just the right amount of time to spend in the busy city to see all the major sights especially if you are trying to pack lots in. We chose Chiang Mai so we could go and see the Elephants and it was so worth it and probably one of the best days of my life. We went in to the jungle to spend the day interacting with them, it was just magical. Chiang Mai is a welcome change from the busy city of Bangkok as it has a much more relaxed way of life. I went to an amazing Thai spa and had my first ever Thai massage (that’s an experience if you have never had one before) on our first night we found some great bars that are plotted around a Thai boxing ring and watched a few local fights. Then to top off the night we wondered back to our hotel via the night markets. For the other night we went to a Traditional Thai evening of food, dance and local entertainment it was so nice to see the older tradition still very much alive in Chiang Mai. After all the shopping, sightseeing and experiences we planned our last place to be Phuket for the beach and totally chill out. I chose a fantastic hotel just off the beach which was close enough to all that Patong has to offer but far enough away that we could just relax if we wanted too. As a must do we went over to Phi Phi (where the beach was filmed) for a day on a boat trip and the beaches that we went to were idyllic…I’m making myself jealous just thinking of them. I really don’t feel like I have given Thailand enough justice in my blog and I guess that is because words will never in my eyes give you all the beauty that the country holds. It’s one of those places that you just have to go and see, it really has so much to offer.
