A friend of mine is heading to Thailand and it got me thinking about when I was there on my round the world trip. I haven’t shared a lot about Thailand on my blog but I did spend a full month there and have visited again in 2014. I recently went through my Thailand photos from my round the world trip and picked out some of my favorites to share in this post. I hope that it will give you some inspiration for your upcoming travels or motivate you to go.

Now for some Thailand photos! 

Bangkok 

I was only planning to spend a few days in Bangkok to see my local friend Toshi. He’s convinced me to stay a bit longer to celebrate Songkran, Thai New Year.

Koh Samui 

After a week visiting with friends in Bangkok, I went south to Koh Samui. To cut down on travel time I found a cheap flight on Air Asia and flew to Surat Thani and then took a boat to Koh Samui. I went after a huge flood and island evacuation but when I went, the island was fine. It was quiet which was nice. I explored the area and added on a day trip to Angthong National Marine Park. I didn’t have a GoPro but looking back now I wish I did since I spent so much time around the water and could have taken even more Thailand photos!

Ko Phi Phi

After Koh Samui, I joined a girl I met named Jenny who I met in Koh Samui and headed to Ko Phi Phi. It was still recovering from the big tsunami and things had just reopened. I didn’t love it but I did love the viewpoint there. We also did a day trip to Maya Bay aka “The Beach” from the movie fame.

Krabi

After Ko Phi Phi, I went to Krabi alone. Jenny stayed but I was ready to leave. I was just here for a few days but I enjoyed it and wished I stayed longer. I would definitely go back. If you are going visit the night market and at the very least, do a day trip to Railay Beach.

Phuket

After Krabi, I headed to Phuket to get a bit of surfing in. I learned to surf in Vietnam with friends and heard that it is possible. The waves were still small which was perfect for me. I stayed near Kata Beach and avoided a lot of Phuket due to opinions of friends and people online. I have since returned to Phuket and I do like it. The local government has been cleaning up the area so it’s getting a bit better. You just have to avoid the touristy craziness of Patong.

Chiang Mai

After Phuket, I took a cheap flight on Air Asia to Chiang Mai in the north. Everyone raves about it so I wanted to see what it was all about. I wanted to spend some time with elephants but sadly I was recommended an elephant experience by a traveler that I met that I can not recommend. I also took a cooking class and visited the local markets. It was the rainy season so I didn’t get a lot of great photos in Chiang Mai sadly.

**If you are looking to spend time with the elephants while traveling please be sure to look for an ethical experience. Sadly the camp that I went to does not treat the elephants humanely. I regret my experience now that I know better. I can recommend Elephant Nature Park after learning more.
