Lopburi and Koh Kham – Daytrips from Bangkok – Thailand 2016

I headed back to Bangkok to see Yindee for a few days before my flight to Myanmar. We decided to take couple of day trips, so here’s a quick report on what we got up to! First trip we visited Lopburi. It’s a city of Temples and Monkeys! It’s about 3 hours ride from Bangkok by train. We actually ended up spending only 5 hours in the city, meaning we’d… Read moreLopburi and Koh Kham – Daytrips from Bangkok – Thailand 2016

Krabi Town – Thailand 2016

I spent a couple of nights in Krabi town after Tonsai. There isn’t a lot to do in the town, but I took a trip to see the Tiger Cave Temple, which is just outside of town. There is a sort of temple complex, including the Tiger Cave itself. The name apparently comes from Tiger footprints in the cave (or that Tigers used to live here….it wasn’t too clear). Anyhow… Read moreKrabi Town – Thailand 2016

Tonsai and around (Railay/Krabi) – Thailand 2016

Tonsai Street Art

Tonsai is one of those backpacker havens where you can spend days on end just relaxing and living life at a slow pace, and that’s what I found myself doing for 8 nights! It’s essentially a mixture of rock climbers, hippies and laid back travellers, a good place to either go climbing crazy or just chill, and I found myself doing the latter. I did actually have plans to do… Read moreTonsai and around (Railay/Krabi) – Thailand 2016

Koh Phayam – Paradise – Thailand 2016

Empty beach with sand and rocks, Koh Phayam, Thailand

Koh Phayam is without doubt the most beautiful island I have visited so far on this trip. I was peaceful, with stunning beaches, beautiful water and a nice happy vibe. I met Yindee in Ranong early morning after she had caught a night bus from Bangkok and we caught a Songthaew to the pier. A mere 15 Baht each for that ride! We then caught the 9am slow boat to… Read moreKoh Phayam – Paradise – Thailand 2016

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
