February has come and gone in a flash! It’s been a really hectic and busy month for me. As I look back through my pictures I realised I spent a large portion of the month drinking and going on nights out! I think March will need to have more of a chilled vibe.

I hope you had a fantastic February too!

February – you’ve been awesome! Mwah!

Our trip to Thailand. 3 weeks, 5 locations, 6 flights, 2 sleeper trains and countless buses. So many experiences, memories and photos! In this post I’m going to share my favourite experiences with you through the photos we took.

1. Wat Pho – Bangkok city centre.

Bangkok is a tourist carousel and the temples (Wat’s in Thai) are all part of it. The Grand Palace is beautiful, sure, but it costs £10 for entry per person and is absolutely heaving with tourists. Wat Pho is the Grand Palace’s less popular baby brother; situated just behind and equally as impressive and glittering. It also costs less than £5 entry so great if you are on a shoestring. The reclining golden Buddha is one of the most incredible man-made wonders I have seen.

2. Thai Farm Cooking School – Chiang Mai.

Getting out of the city to visit this tranquil organic farm, picking out ingredients and cooking up authentic Thai dishes was a pretty wonderful day. Read my full review here.

3. Sunday Night Market – Chiang Mai

Market doesn’t really cover it to be honest. We spent 3 hours wandering through this and didn’t even cover a small percentage of it! It is seriously huge and very, very busy; but with an amazing atmosphere and full of beautiful hand crafted items and Thai products. The majority of ‘markets’ in Thailand are packed full of fake Ray Bans and toy elephants so this market is a real breath of fresh and every stall is different. TIP: go early to avoid getting crushed in the crowd!

4. Baan Chang Elephant Park – Chiang Mai

Not only one of the best experiences  of my trip but one of the best experiences of my life! Spending the day with this beautiful, magnificent creatures was a genuine honour. They are gentle giants. The park takes great care of them and takes pride in educating the tourists who visit about the elephants and their behaviour and lives. Getting the bathe the elephants was the best part and this picture is of me getting caught up in a trunk spray war!

5. Cheow Lan Lake – Khao Sok National Park

It was so hard to choose a photograph from these few days. The park is truly stunning and there were a million photos to choose from. Everything from hiking to waterfalls, amazing views and the beautiful lake which we swam in. This photo is me enjoying a hot rain storm which literally came and went in 3 minutes! Incredible.

6. Snorkelling at Ko Rok – Ko Lanta

I love the water especially when it’s crystal clear blue like the sea at Ko Rok! A tiny, uninhabited island off Ko Lanta surrounded by corals and tropical fish. We even saw Nemo!

7. View point – Koh Phi Phi

A longggg hike up there in the sweaty humidity but the view was so worth it. Koh Phi Phi is paradise.

8. Monkey army – Railay beach

Railay is mostly a relaxed and chilled out place – other than their tribes of criminal monkeys of course! Luckily we didn’t lose our phones or camera to them, but we saw several people lose their dinner! It’s amazing to watch their behaviour so close. They have learnt that if the babies distract the humans the grown ups can sneak up behind and nick the goods! Incredible to witness.

9. Railay Beach – Krabi Province

Although this beach is a bit busy do my liking there is no escaping the fact that it is absolutely drop dead stunning. The limestone cliffs shield it giving a totally unobstructed view and meaning it is only accessible by long tail boat! Not to mention the powdery white sand and crystal clear water. Pure paradise.

10. Sunset at Phra Nang beach – Krabi Province

Railay beach’s baby brother and home to the ‘happy rock’, in the day time I would say this beach is over rated. Packed full of day trippers to the point where there is no where to put your towel and a lot of ‘snack boats’ turn up at lunch time to feed the ravenous tourists. However, at sunset, when everyone has gone; it is truly spectacular.
