Highlights of Thailand (Chris says that I think the country is called Shrimp Pad Thailand)
Krabi: visiting the hot springs waterfall and the Emerald pools- lovely and refreshing!
Phuket: spending New Year’s Eve on Patong Beach, with maybe 6,000 other people, setting off fireworks and paper lanterns.
Semilan Islands: an over night tent camping trip to some uninhabited islands in the Andaman Sea.
Night train to Bangkok: my number one favorite way to travel long distances.
Bangkok: seeing Chantal. Seeing the Grand Palace and the Reclining Buddha. Eating street food. Hello, mango sticky rice and pad Thai and avocado shakes and hot tea with sweetened condensed milk. Mmmmm.
Ayutthaya: The ancient capital of Siam, sacked by the Burmese in 1767.
Chiang Mai: The “Rose of the North”, home to Thai boxing and stupas and yoga studios galore
Chiang Rai: The futuristic and weird White Palace
