A Week in Thailand!

If you were to ask me what my absolute favorite country I've visited so far was, you might think it would be Australia.....well guess again, because it's definitely Thailand.
Bangkok was so awesome but the most beautiful place I've ever seen is Phuket and the islands that are nearby.
In Bangkok, we went to temples and shopped.....a lot. We shopped at the famous Khao San Road, which was a three minute walk from our hostel, and one day we went to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Markets, about an hour south of the city. We also went to a bar on the rooftop of a very tall hotel, so you can see the entire city and that was gorgeous!

In Phuket, we did so much! First, we went elephant trekking and then had a sunset dinner cruise around Chalong Bay. The next day we went on an island hopping boat trip all day around the Phi Phi Islands, which are stunning. That was my absolute favorite part of the entire trip! We went snorkeling around reefs, walked on practically untouched islands, visited Monkey Island and fed the monkeys, and had lunch with an incredible view. The next day we went to Patong Beach in the morning, a fifteen minute walk from our hotel. Later, we did the Flying Hanuman, which is basically ziplining across the jungle! It was so fun! The next morning, we visited the super famous Big Buddha at the top of a mountain in Phuket; the views were spectacular and the Buddha just as cool! That night we had our flight out and had to leave the lovely land of the Thai!

It was the most incredible trip of my life and I will make sure to stop by there again, hopefully for longer!

  1. Aleppy is one of the best places to see in Kerala. It is a must see place where you can find Houseboats and very much suitable for couples. Most of them are on my list.
