    THAILAND – OUR ITINERARY GUIDE FOR A 15-20 DAYS TRIP

    Welcome to our Thailand itinerary guide, the country that has it all! From tropical beaches in the south to charming mountains in the north, from crazy railways to ancient tribe villages and elephant sanctuaries. It is a vast nation and places to see are countless, here we try to list the most important ones. Thailand was our first country in Southeast Asia we stepped in, as many first time goers we landed in Bangkok. Describing this city would need more than 1,000 adjectives, and same goes for the country as well. Let’s just stick to the popular tag to keep it simple: “The land of smiles”! READ ALSO: 11 free…

    OVERNIGHT TRAIN FROM CHIANG MAI TO BANGKOK, THAILAND

    How to travel by overnight train in northern Thailand. Thailand is an awesome country, mostly known for its amazing islands and beaches, but don’t forget that the north offers unique landscapes too. Chiang Mai, the biggest city in the north, is reachable via the reliable and fascinating Thai state railway that crosses the nation vertically. We used Thai trains several times, from Chiang Mai to Bangkok overnight, from Bangkok to Ayutthaya, and also from Bangkok to the eastern border with Cambodia. A full visit to Thailand wouldn’t be complete without a train travel, always the most interesting and straight way to get to know a country and its population. If…

    BACK TO BANGKOK, END OF OUR TRAVEL IN ASIA

    This is our second visit to Thai capital city, after staying here last February. In Bangkok, every district is a smaller city in the city. Last time we stayed close to the riverside in the oldest part, whilst this time we are going to experience Sukhumvit, the modern area. SUKHUMVIT After an underground+Bts (skytrain) ride, we quickly reach our hotel. Yes, that’s right, after weeks of guesthouses we are staying in a lovely studio suite, allowing us a comfort stay to fight the sadness for the ending travels. There’s even a rooftop swimming pool here! Still, we are 7-8 km away from the centre, but we could live in this neighbourhood…

    AYUTTHAYA, THAILAND

    It’s time for us to leave Chiang Mai and charming Northern Thailand to head south. We just have a few days remaining before our flight back home from Bangkok, to be spent either in Sukhothai or in Ayutthaya. Since we are travelling by train, the former is more difficult to reach as there’s no direct connection, you have to take a bus from Pithsanulok. So we decide to put Sukhothai on the side for future travels, and go straight to Ayutthaya.   We wait for a while in Chiang Mai station, and step in our train half an hour before leaving time, at 6 pm. The coaches looks nice and clean,…

    CHIANG MAI-PAI-MAE HONG SON LOOP: A 3-DAY RIDE

    We have been being in Chiang Mai for a few days now, we already visited the temples inside the walls and had a wonderful experience at an elephant sanctuary. Now we get ready to face this glorious loop in north western Thailand, that officially counts 1864 curves! To be honest we didn’t know it was known for the number of its curves, we just wanted to go from Chiang Mai to Pai first, as many people we met suggested us to go. Then we wanted to see Doi Inthanon Park and the peak of Thailand too, so we decided to do the entire way around. Actually the complete famous loop goes…

    CHIANG MAI AND THE ELEPHANTS

    We are staying 10 days in Northern Thailand, and Chiang Mai is the most significant city in the area under many aspects: over 200,000 inhabitants, more and more expats are settling here, which makes it multicultural and welcoming. 300+ temples in and outside the old city walls, and a wide range of activities to do all around. After visiting Wat Doi Suthep yesterday, in the morning we go inside the walls, into the old city. The number of temples is almost uncountable, we see golden facades and coverings everywhere. We are looking for the most famous one, Wat Chedi Luang: there it is rising unmistakable and unique. Of course there…

    CHIANG RAI AND ARRIVAL AT CHIANG MAI

    Chiang Rai is the first stop of our journey in Thailand that will see us going from North to South, ending in Bangkok. ***ALL THE PHOTOS OF WHITE TEMPLE HERE!!!*** Chiang Rai is a little quiet city with a few attractions. Some people prefer it to Chiang Mai because it’s smaller and less crowded, but still you can go and do the same typical activities and excursions in the area around like visiting several temples, see the elephants, jungle treks, etc.. We decided to spend more time in Chiang Mai, so we’ll stay just one day here. Last night we walked through the night bazaar and had dinner close to…
