Well kids, I’m off to Thailand again in a few week! Lucky me right. Well, my friend Natalie and I are taking a risk as we’re going to the west coast of the country and potentially landing smack bang in rainy season.
Here’s where we’re going:
Bangkok – as ever, we’ll start the journey in the nation’s capital. With its smog, its humidity, its hustle, bustle, street food and shopping. In our 4 days in the city, I plan to show Natalie (a Thailand newbie) JJ market, Platinum Fashion Mall, the Grand Palace, a couple of night markets, chinatown and more. She loves shopping so this will form a big part of the trip.
From Bangkok we move on to…
Krabi… Railay in particular – so, we get a cheap short flight down the country, followed with a quick taxi to Ao Nang, followed by a longtail boat round the shoreline to Railay where we’ll stay for 5 nights. Hopefully we’ll get to do some relaxation, a bit of cliff climbing, feed some monkeys, run away from some monkeys and drink plenty of cocktails.
From Railay, we move on to…
Ao Nang – not quite as pretty as the previous few days, but it’s still Thailand so stunning regardless. And there’s more life here, so we’re entitling this part of the journey, the massage leg…. and massage back…. and massage feet…. massage neck and so on. In between eating copious amounts of street food at the night markets in the town, we’ll be enjoying some R&R.
From Ao Nang, we move on to…
Well, we move onto another night in Bangkok and then home! Not a bad trip right?
So, Thailand hive mind, do you have any recommendations for the various locations we’re visiting? Please please please pop them in the comments below and I look forward to updating you on the trip when I get back!
