Thai street food is the best food ever.
Not easy to get off the beaten path
This trip is a classic, Thailand is one of those countries for first solo travellers. Thailand means, the land of the smile. After visiting some other countries, I can state that this is totally true.
I flew from Madrid to Mumbai and from there to Bangkok, I arrived to this 24/7 extremely busy city on mid September, Moonsoon and low season, even though, I I found myself surrounded by a tone of tourists and travellers from all around the world.
After the first three nights in Kaoh san Road, I needed a quieter place and against all odds, I found a very nice place, for a better prize (10 euro), and better installations, very quiet place and still in the heart of Bangkok.
I spent a week in Bangkok, visiting temples, markets, parks... theres much to do and see. Night time in this city is also caothic, messy and fun, you won´t get bored.
My next destination was Koh taoh, a paradise for divers. I stayed in a bungalow facing the sea for ten days for about 13 euro a night. Good deal!
I took my Open Waters course in Koh Taoh and is one of the best experiences I´ve had in my life, I also met lovely people and I was amazed with the nature of the Island.
I headed up north trying to get off the touristy itinerary, It´s not easy in thailand. I arrived to Pai, a beautiful hippy small town fullfilled with good energy. Pai is also a good starting point for routes, hikkings and exploration.
I ended up renting a scooter bike in Pai and riding all the way down the Thailand and Myanmar borderline, through the Thai jungle crazy roads to Khlong Wang Chao National Park. Only Thai tourists I found here, and not many.
