Amazing Thailand - The Land of Smiles!

A dancer is all smiles at the hilltop Wat Doi Suthep located in Thailand’s northern capitol of Chiang Mai.

From Penang, Malaysia I took a short AirAsia flight into the capitol city of Bangkok and just like that I had arrived into the Kingdom of Thailand - the land of smiles.

What’s not to smile about?

World class beaches such as Ko Phi Phi and Ko Pha Ngan - check!

Exploring Buddhists temples - check!

Nonstop shopping in the capitol of Bangkok in huge modern malls - check!

Sipping Chang or Singha beer on the famed Khao San Road where all backpacking trips begin and end and watching the world go by - check!

Trekking with elephants - check!

Getting a history lesson at the ancient capitols of Ayutthaya and Sukhothai - check!

Trekking to minority tribes in the mountains surrounding Chiang Mai - check!

The food, the glorious food - check!

From the independent flashpacker like myself to the resort-umbrella in the glass-tourist, Thailand offers everything under the sun for all types of travelers to find their little slice of paradise.

Be sure to pack your camera, sense of adventure and a big smile!

Check back for more of my Thailand adventures!

Happy Travels!
