Doing not a lot on Koh Samui (and not a lot to do in Chumphon and Ranong) – Thailand 2016

Leaving Bangkok I didn’t really have much of a plan other than ‘go south’ so I decided to get the train to Chumphon (about a 9 hour ride) and go from there and figure it out. There is pretty much nothing to do in Chumphon itself. I stayed at Salsa hostel which is pretty nice, 2 nights in total as I had stuff to do online and i’d arrived late… Read moreDoing not a lot on Koh Samui (and not a lot to do in Chumphon and Ranong) – Thailand 2016

Kanchanaburi – Thailand 2016

View of a pool at Erawan Waterfalls, Thailand

Arriving back from Sukhothai I spent another night in Bangkok, before heading to Kanchanaburi with Yindee. Me and her met up and went out to The Rock Bar in the Siam area, which was quite but fun, there was a couple bands playing doing good covers of a lot of Grunge and Alt-Rock songs from the ’90s so I was very happy! I also stayed more centrally this time, at… Read moreKanchanaburi – Thailand 2016

Sukhothai – temples, temples, temples – Thailand 2016

Sunset in Sukhothai Historical Park

After islands and the second time in Bangkok I was the mood for some hardcore sightseeing and headed north to Sukhothai, which took about 7 hours by bus. Sukhothai was the capital of the Sukhothai Kingdom between 1238 and 1347. It is split in 2 now, New Sukhothai which is a modern Thai city and Old Sukhothai where the Sukhothai Historical Park is found, the site of the old capital,… Read moreSukhothai – temples, temples, temples – Thailand 2016

Bangkok Round 2 – Thailand 2016

Arriving in Bangkok I stayed in the same hostel I first began this trip I am currently on, all the way back in November! I was even in the same dorm room! It was weird being back in Khaosan Immjai, I have done so much since I first set foot there, it’s been an incredible journey so far and long may it continue! So being back in Bangkok and already… Read moreBangkok Round 2 – Thailand 2016

Back to Thailand – Ko Chang – Thailand 2016

Sunset on Koh Chang, over the water, east Thailand

Having said farewell to Cambodia I crossed into Thailand at the Hat Lek border point. I’d gotten myself a multi entry visa before i’d left the UK (valid up to six months, paid for 2 entries) so it was an easy transition. You can get visa on arrival but i’d decided to get this one in advance because it gives 60 days in the country meaning I can travel nice… Read moreBack to Thailand – Ko Chang – Thailand 2016

Kratie, Dolphins, Koh Kong, Disliking Sihanoukville, farewells – Cambodia 2016

On Koh Rong Sanloem an English hippy girl described Sihanoukville to me as her idea of hell, and I am very inclined to agree. Me, Dylan, Amanda and James returned from the islands and being required to stay a night there we headed to the Big Easy hostel. Oh man, whilst the layout and the food were good it was packed full of the kind of English people I spend… Read moreKratie, Dolphins, Koh Kong, Disliking Sihanoukville, farewells – Cambodia 2016
