Thailand Travels

We three sisters had a fantastic time in Thailand! Chiang Mai was very special because of our friend DL who lives there. We spent the first full day visiting temples and sights and on our second day, DL took us to two very cool local hang outs. The Bua Tong Waterfalls and Huai Tueng Thao Lake are both located within two different National Parks. We were very lucky with the weather, it's still considered monsoon season at the moment, and had a dry day and so were able to clamber all over the waterfalls and then relax afterwards on the lake in bamboo huts with a grand feast of fresh seafood.

Bua Tong Waterfalls; that's me on the waterfalls, also called the 'Sticky Waterfalls', as you can climb up and down on the calcium deposits.

In Krabi, we were unfortunately hit with stormy weather for most of the time except for the one day we decided to try for the islands. We couldn't believe our luck and loved the day spent on the water with swimming, snorkling and sightseeing around the Phi Phi Islands.

Bangkok ended up being very hectic but also fun. The days were packed with massages, manis/pedis, shopping and chat time. We really didn't have a minute to spare! This was Alison's first trip with Linh and I and we naturally wanted to make it special for her. She is now back in Perth with hopefully good memories of our time together while Linh and I have continued our journey. We are currently in Yangon, Myanmar which has been amazing so far. The internet is patchy and so I will post proper photos after the trip. Happy days to everyone!
