After 3 and a half months of staying in the north of Thailand, we went to the south of the country, where we spent another three weeks. During this short period of time we managed to visit Koh Samui, Phuket, Krabi and 4 small islands, which are located off the coast of Krabi town.
A gorgeous day featuring clear blue skies, warm weather and nature giving us one final display of stunning beauty before surrendering to the summer heat. Typical mid-May day here on the Maltese islands, specifically a very quiet area in the West of Malta. The imposing cliffs and crystal blue lagoons swirling beneath us offer the perfect setting for a day of abseiling and ziplining for myself and Jean.
After tomorrow we are leaving Chiang Mai and heading to the south of Thailand to explore some islands. We spent three and a half months in Chiang Mai and we are really going to miss this city. It’s a great place to visit. Chiang Mai has a unique kind of buzz to it, oscillating between a busy city life in the center and a more tranquil setting as soon as you distance yourself by a few kilometers. If you are adventurous enough to rent a motorbike and head out exploring, a wonderful countryside bursting with all kinds of flowers and wildlife awaits you.
Once you are in Chiang Mai you will definitely hear a lot of rave reviews about Pai, a small town in the mountains near the Burmese border. The same happened to us. Everybody we met asked us: “Have you been to Pai already? No? You should go! It’s amazing!”. So we decided to arrange our getaway from Chiang Mai for St. Valentine’s Day, for 3 days and we had a delightful stay there.
In this post I would like to tell you about our one day trip to Thailand, Burma and Laos which cost us $40 per person. Curious how that’s possible? Then continue reading!
