Thailand has been a dream destination on my list of wanderlust for awhile now. The start of May was amazing traveling around Thailand with Trevor, and I can't wait to share everything we loved, and learned about this beautiful country. I hope that my insight can be helpful for those of you who have thought about or are planning on going someday.
POSTS ON THAILAND
It was hard not to just stare at everything. There was so much going on all the time, so many details, you could stare for hours in one direction and notice something new every minute. It was just amazing. The next morning we got some breakfast off the street and headed out to do a little boat river tour and see some of the Temples. We learned that every city or village puts together their own money to build a temple for their community. The pictures don't really do any of these temples justice. They are so ornate, detailed, beautiful and when you see the type of poverty that so many of these people live in, it is astounding that so many communities in Thailand have come together to build them. A truly loyal and dedicated people.
We didn't get to see all the temples we wanted to, but were still happy with what we did get to see. We headed to China Town for dinner, a spot I had read a lot of great reviews on. I have never been to China but I can imagine that the China Town in Bangkok is as close to the real thing as you can get. After dinner we were walking down the street and Trevor noticed a massage place. Our feet were throbbing from walking around the past two days, and mine were bloated from the flight. We read each others minds and headed on in to get some foot massages. Massages, well really everything, in Thailand is so dang cheap! How can you not get a foot massage when half an hour will cost you three bucks? That is a huge perk to traveling in Thailand, the dollar goes a long way. You can try everything and do more then you could on other vacations. Trevor had never received any kind of massage before, so this was a totally new experience for him. I have had pedicures so I had an idea, but I have never had anything like what I got that day. Best foot/leg massage ever! I was in heaven.
