They say time flies when you are having a good time. And that’s what we are having, the time of our lives. Since the start of 2017 we have been traveling through 4 countries now. First one was Thailand. And here I’m gonna catch with you guys. The last 2 weeks the internet was not very good so I had trouble loading my pictures. So here right now I’m in Bali where I have beter Wifi.
First as you saw in my previous post we celebrated NYE in Bangkok. We stayed there 3 nights. And personally I think this is just the right amount of time to stay their. The city is big, hot hot hot and some parts maybe a little dirty for Western people like us. They have beautiful skyscrapers, shoppingmalls and fancy rooftops. Mixed with older parts with the typical temples, tiny houses and traditional Thai lifestyle.
The first day we did with Vankessel&Co a bike tour,through Bangkok. It was really fun to do and you see the real Bangkok, cycling through Thai neighborhoods, visiting temples and crossing the river. It was a nice tour and we had seen a nice part of the city.
Other things we did in Bangkok were Wat Po temple with the big golden Buddha, partying in Koasan Road and riding a tuktuk. After 3 nights in Bangkok it was time to take the Surat Thani train to Krabi.
Honestly I have never seen such beautiful islands like in Thailand. We took a long-tail boat Koh Poda, and Phra Nang Cave, speedboat Bamboo Island,, Koh Phi Phi and Maya Bay were the movie The Beach with Leonardo Dicaprio was filmed. Truly such beautiful nature and beaches, but there is one thing pictures you don’t really show. You have to take the many many many tourists with you. Beaches are little crowed except Koh Poda, but still really nice to see it.
They also say pictures say more than words, so therefore some pictures and for those who want to see more, we made a little video for family and friends. I share it with you, just click on the following link.
