Thailand (2015)

I travelled to Thailand from 13 January – 11 February 2015.  My partner travelled with me and we relied on public transport (including planes, trains, buses and taxis) to get around. We started our trip by falling in love with Bangkok before catching a train out to famous Kanchanaburi. We then flew to Phuket for a couple of days to check out the famous islands and beaches before returning to Bangkok to eat more food and see more temples. After Bangkok we caught a mini bus to historic Ayutthaya with its ancient temple ruins. A scary mini bus trip took us to the airport in Bangkok from where we flew to Chiang Mai.
