Semilan Islands

Go on an over night tent camping trip to the uninhabited islands in the Andaman Sea. Didn’t bring a tent? You can rent one here, no problem.

Night train to Bangkok

Take the train! My number one favorite way to travel long distances. Thai trains are comfortable, fast, and there are plenty of them.

Bangkok:

See the Grand Palace and the Reclining Buddha. Eat street food. Hello, mango sticky rice and pad Thai and avocado shakes and hot tea with sweetened condensed milk.  Mmmmm. From the train market to the night market, you will find so much food, and at such great prices.

Ayutthaya

Visit the ancient capital of Siam, sacked by the Burmese in 1767.

Chiang Mai

The “Rose of the North”, Chiang Mai is home to Thai boxing and stupas and yoga studios galore
