I’m now traveling around Thailand by car. As my internet connections are often slow in rural Thailand, and I’m busy all day, I’m mostly putting up pictures with a few terse labels. I’m not going to try to make this a Thailand travel guide, but just share the atmosphere.
You get a lot for your travel dollar in Thailand, and can easily eat and sleep very well for a fraction of the costs in the USA or Europe.
Chiang Rai area, far northern Thailand. Higher altitude, more rain, cooler, lush. I like this area a lot.
Next stop: Ayutthaya, the old historic capital of Thailand. Located on the same river that flows down to Bangkok. A water destination, so we stayed in a traditional rustic wood room on a small island.
Then we headed east to the Saraburi area, and Khao Yai Park.
More to come, including Phuket
