As you may know, (if you follow me, Alex, on Instagram), I recently just got back from a 12 day trip to Thailand. I’m a big advocate of travel hacking, (which
Also, you can eat for about $2 a meal if you aren’t dining at a fancy restaurant. Don’t worry though! If you DO choose to dine out, you’ll probably only spend $10 for a big freakin’ dinner. It’s impossible to complain about that because that is literally a Chipotle bowl without guacamole. (You know you’re a millennial when…)
I plan on blogging about some of my Thailand adventures in a week or two but for now, I wanted to put together a list of the must-see places. Here we go.
5) Wat Arun
This is a temple in Bangkok. It’s not just any temple though. It’s the most aesthetically pleasing,
4) Kanta Elephant Sanctuary
I knew that I wanted to go mix and mingle with the elephants while in Chiang Mai, Thailand but I also knew that I wanted to find a sanctuary that treated the elephants ethically. For those who don’t know, there are a lot of places in Southeast Asia, and around the world, that treat elephants horribly! If you are interested in going to visit the elephants, please don’t go to a location that allows you to ride them. Most of these locations make the elephants work long hours without food and water, keep them in awful conditions and abuse them. Kanta was great because it is an actual elephant sanctuary that rescues elephants and instead of riding them, you spend a full day feeding them, bathing them and observing them. These powerful creatures really are so magical and when you’re walking around with them in the middle of the jungle, you feel like you’re hanging out with some giant dinosaurs or something. It’s just a really cool experience and one that I would recommend if you make the journey to Thailand. Fun fact- Elephants view humans similarly to how humans view dogs. AKA, they think we are cute little pets. Also, they can remember human faces. How cool is that?
3) Hong Kong’s Priority Pass Lounge
You’re probably like why is this on here and rolling your eyes at me at the same time but hear me out! I did go into Hong Kong and tour the city but the buffet at the Priority Pass Lounge in Hong Kong was killer. Honestly, all Priority Pass Lounges rock, (and we used them at every airport we journeyed through which was a lot), but this one
2) Tour of Doi Inthanon National Park
This National Park is in Chiang Mai and it’s a tour that was totally booked on a random whim. One day, I was walking around and viewing this
1) Long Beach in Ko Phi Phi Don
This was my favorite beach
