My recent trip to Thailand was one of my most epic adventures ever! Thailand has amazing weather, friendly locals, delicious food, lush nature and wildlife, and of course, the picture perfect islands. And its super cheap!! I visited Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai, and Koh Phi Phi and Koh Phangan Islands in 2 weeks.
I attended the Full Moon Party on New Years at Koh Phangan and it was such a fun experience. It was a ginormous party on the beach with fireworks, glow in the dark, street food, and buckets of alcohol! I got to meet so many cool foreigners and the music was just what I loved!
Visiting Koh Phi Phi was one of my highlights of the trip as well. Those islands are very famous and known for their magical beauty. We went snorkeling, sunbathing, played with wild monkeys, and hiked up to the viewpoints. The islands provided spectacular views, sandy beaches, and the water was super warm and crystal clear.
Bangkok was an amazing city! There are lots of great nightlife options such as Khao San Road, Soi Cowboy, and if you’re into the clubbing scene, check out the club called Onyx. A must do is to take water taxis to see the many drop-dead gorgeous temples such as the Grand Palace and Wat Pho.
In Chiang Mai, we played with tigers, rode elephants, and went to cooking school! Chiang Mai is way more cultural with more wildlife. It was great to get out of the city and enjoy the nature.
When you’re in Phuket, make sure to visit the many islands of your choice, walk around Old Phuket Town, Bangla Road for the crazy nightlife, Big Buddha, and watch a Simon Cabaret Show. If you’re a foodie, check out the popular rooftop restaurant, Higher. It is a big pricey because of course, the view is spectacular, but the food is on point and the service is impeccable.
