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.

Thailand 2015 – Chiang Mai

I decided to catch a 2nd class day train for the 10 hour journey from Ayutthaya to Chiang Mai. I know many do the night train but I’m glad with my choice as those I’ve spoken to who got the bought train were all worn out from it. It wasn’t too bad, music and book kept me entertained. All I did when I arrived was grab some food from the… Read moreThailand 2015 – Chiang Mai

My visit to South East Asia begins in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. I left the UK on 2nd November, landing in Thailand on the 3rd.
