Exploring Thailand

In most of the movies I’ve watched, magazines that I’ve read, ads or blogs that I’ve seen, and even when you asked people around what is the destination of choice when traveling alone for the first time, Bangkok is always on the list, and not just on the list, but on top of it. Before my traveling journey begun in 2017, I went to Bangkok for the first time and fell in love with their culture, their temples, and of course their night markets. It’s similar to the Philippines, and it seems I’m not away from home.Β  There are too many places to visit and things to explore in Thailand but in this sample itinerary, I managed to pin point the ones that will make you fall in love with it.

(memorable story: I took this photo before my traveling journey 
begun, I used to be quiet, timid, a total introvert but when I set 
foot on this cruise and surprisingly GANGNAM STYLE was played by the
DJ, all of the people went dancing like crazy (including ME) and 
then I realized I really need to meet more of these people! Its 
really fun to go outside of the comfort zone!)
