Welcome to Thailand
Welcome to Thailand… It is much more than full moon parties, which abound! Get a taste of wild Bangkok. It is busy but so intriguing with its temples, floating markets and spicy and sweet street food (did someone say mango sticky rice?)
Make your way to some of the outstanding islands. I loved Ko Tao and Ko Lanta Yai. Don’t miss the sea cliffs at Krabi and add in some National Parks to your itinerary like Khao Sok and Kaeng Krachan. You will never want to return home! Tune up your taste buds for outstanding Thai cuisine (more green curry, please). Get ready for a feast for the senses: sparkling oceans, glittering temples, golden Buddhas and gentle souls everywhere. But did I mention the Thai smile? Smiling faces greet you at every turn. Add Thailand to your list. It’s unforgettable.
