20 Tage Thailand Tour

Thailand Adventure Tour

Thailand has always held a particular devote my heart. Initially when i first travelled there in 1991, a large eyed kid wet behind the ears having a bucket shop one way ticket to Bangkok. My grand plans of the short beach break before continuing to fall for the east coast of Australia joining the A huge number of Pommie pilgrims earning a right of passage didn't exactly go to plan. I left Thailand eleven months later to come back home penniless, emancipated and full of great stories, which my buddies soon got tired of.

I returned several times mainly to Bangkok and Koh Samui happy to come back within the land of smiles but feeling slightly disappointed at all the changes. That old story of development following your rules for your locals but not best for my feeling of adventure. That did not deter me from joining the Imaginative Travellers Wilderness Adventure a couple of years ago.

Arriving in Bangkok this time around was different. I'd an accommodation booked so no lugging my pack in Bangkok's suffocating mixture of exhaust fumes, humidity trying to find a clean bed. I had a group to meet too, it was also good, eating Pad Thai by yourself looking for a fellow traveller to strike a discussion with can often be difficult work. There were 10 people, a variety of Poms, Aussies, a Canadian, a united states along with a South African. We all met for dinner and very quickly after my first Thai beer I knew this would be a fun trip

Bangkok to me means food and shopping as well as the best spot to discover both may be the Chata Chuk weekend market. I headed there with belly empty and wallet full going to reverse the two. The marketplace is huge, really huge, 35 acres of cheap goodies huge and sells anything from furniture to genuine fake designer clothes. The street food is fantastic but don't forget the Thai's enjoy it hot. I left my shopping with the hotel to keep safe while i will be returning there once I finished the trip.

On Chiang Mai on the overnight train. I prefer travelling like this, sleeping while moving is sensible in my experience and the train is clean, functional, safe and fine. I think Chiang Mai is the perfect place to escape hectic Bangkok. It's a peaceful, happy place which reflects inside the locals. Sight seeing is going to take one to the Wat Pratat Doi Suthep temple - stunning and golden on a sunny day. The subsequent stage of the trip was trekking inside the surrounding jungle, I made a decision I wanted a massage before we tripped.

A trek in the hills of Northern Thailand is a opportunity to escape everyday routine and clear your head. The going just isn't too difficult for someone with fairly good fitness although if it rains the mud can be tricky. I had been enjoying my very own head space once we reached the first village of wooden homes, pecking chickens and lots of smiles, basic however i couldn't think of somewhere else I would go for been. Chan, our guide, was a local from your neighbouring village and eventually he previously us divided amongst our village hosts before the sun set but got too hard for us city individuals to do anything whatsoever without electric light. That night, with the noise of the surrounding jungle lying on a mattress roll on a bamboo floor, was most likely the most peaceful night's sleep That i've ever had.

The subsequent day's trek was shorter so we covered ground quicker, maybe i was becoming familiar with the trekking but I think it had been the excitement with the elephant ride ahead that afternoon. Lunch was delicious but i was too busy watching the elephants wash in the river to notice. Elephants are brilliant creatures and located on one journeying deeper in to the jungle is a fantastic experience.

The following morning Chan had us up early helping him and the village men build our rafts to take us down river to civilization. It's all area of the experience helping the guys and by helping I mean staying out of their way while they expertly craft our rafts. A serene float right down to closest small town where our bus was waiting to consider us to a hot shower and another massage.

We left Chiang Mai and headed back to Bangkok where we broke the journey up to the south having an overnight be in the city of angels.

I had heard a few good things about Khoa Sok national park, much less favored by tourists or backpackers alike due it lacking a significant bus stop. To acquire there you have to stop the bus by the 3rd banyan tree after 17th stream close to the big hill and you will find a bakkie waiting to consider you to the park. I'm glad we had an excursion leader. The very first night we slept with the birds in tree houses the next and third we stayed in raft houses on a manufactured dam. This is a truly beautiful area and a few of us spent the times swimming in waterfalls, flooded caves, kayaking and hiking and a few of just sat back and took all of it in.

How to finish this Thailand trip? About the beach of course. The islands around Krabi are what we visualize once we imagine a Thai beach plus they do not disappoint. The Thai's use a word called sabai, loosely translated it indicates an inner happiness and contentment. I woke one afternoon from a napping about the beach and understood just what sabai means.
