New in Nakhon Si Thammarat

After a boat and taxi to Krabi bus depot, we boarded a local bus to Nakhon Si Thammarat City which took about 2 hours.

New Roads in Railay

From Koh Phangan, we decided to head to somewhere new for both Pete and I, since last time I travelled through Thailand I essentially 'got stuck' on Koh Phangan and couldn't bring myself to leave. I never visited anywhere further South, places said to be amongst the most beautiful in Thailand. So we got the… Continue reading New Roads in Railay

Pete was very impressed though as I prebooked him a vegan meal for the flight¬†¬†and we also found a vegan coffee (almond milk) shop at the airport.… Continue reading Songkran in Bangkok

Thailand Planning and Preparation

Ever since I got home from my 8 month trip in South East Asia in 2014 I have been dreaming of returning. It's usually tough to choose to revisit places I've been before over visiting new and unexplored places, but with Thailand, it wasn't... It was a country and culture I had fallen in love… Continue reading Thailand Planning and Preparation

‘Living’ on Koh Phangan

I left Chumphon early with the intention of catching a train to Surat Thani and a boat to the Islands North of there, Koh Phangan. However, I missed the train and so caught a minibus instead! I arrived in Surat Thani and waited for an hour to catch the last boat to the Island. Watching… Continue reading ‘Living’ on Koh Phangan
