Thailand was the very first destination on our round the world trip and we loved it! Lots of beautiful temples, delicious food, amazing beaches, friendly people, and lots more.
We’ll never forget
celebrating Loi Krathong in Chiang Mai, learning how to dive on Koh Tao and our day petting and feeding elephants (still one of Birthe her favourite days ever!).
Don’t get disappointed if the hustle and bustle of Bangkok isn’t your cup of tea. Travel north towards Chiang Mai for some more culture or discover the hot water and beautiful beaches on one of the many tropical islands.
We’ll definitely be going back to Thailand!
