I bought a used backpack, a plane ticket, and flew into Bangkok, Thailand. I didn’t know anybody. I didn’t know the language. All I had booked was my first 2 nights in a hotel. The rest of the journey was an absolute adventure.
The opportunities for adventure in Thailand are unlimited.
Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai is a must visit. For $13 you get to go into a cage with Siberian tigers, and who wouldn’t want to do that?
Have you ever fed a 6 month old elephant? There are ethical elephant farms in Chiang Mai where you can bathe and feed elephants bananas.
Chiang Mai, Thailand is a unique mixture of old versus new. Thailand loves 711’s, and with 300 Buddhist temples in Chiang Mai, Buddhist monks are everywhere
Maya Bay in Koh Phi Phi is some of the greenest water you have ever seen. This is a popular tourist destination so prepare for crowds. The snorkelling here is awesome and you can swim up close with all kinds of cool fish.
Travelling with a long tail boat is pretty common on the islands in Thailand. A lot of these tours even bring lunch and drinks for you so all you have to do hop on board. Be sure to chat up the drivers of these boats as they have some awesome stories.
One of the coolest things about travelling abroad is all the locals that you get to meet. Everyone has a unique story and making new friends is all part of the adventure.
The countryside in Phuket is beautiful. There are many bike tours in Phuket that take you through the city and out to the countryside to see some of the sites
