(Continued from Sri Lanka)

We visited Thailand 18 years ago when we lived in Malaysia. I can say that Thailand hasn’t changed that much: it managed to conserved it’s culture through an ever increasing number of tourists visiting each year (38.3 million tourists in 2018).

I spent 2 days in Northern Bangkok on June 14th-15th before visiting West Timor.

From July 3rd to 5th, Cynthia, Alixe & I visited Bangkok before heading to Sri Lanka.

From August 3rd to August 9th, we visited Hua Hin and it’s surroundings with our friends.

I don’t think there are any real destinations left in Thailand that are OFF the beaten track. I though that Hua Hin would be less touristy, but what a surprise!

We rented motorcycles and drove over 200km in three days around Hua Hin. Driving through rice fields, we visited amazing temples, beautiful caves, big statues and nice beaches.

By train, we did a day trip to Petchaburi, a city infested with monkeys. The hike to the summit of Wat was somewhat scary with hundred of macaque monkeys ready to attack!
