What to say about Thailand? It’s beautiful, great beaches, awesome karst topography and friendly people. Although, I hear if you understand Thai the people seem a lot less friendly. Oh well. It’s a great place to travel on a budget, that’s for sure, and incredibly easy to get around.
I spent a month there in 2002; two weeks in the south in Ko Lanta, Ko Tao, and Ko Pha Ngan and then two weeks up in the north in Chaing Mai and Pai. Oh, and a few days in crazy Bangkok. Good times.
