we all had one thing in common on our recent trip to Krabi in Thailand, and that was the desire to kick back and relax for seven rejuvenating days!
Like many of my fellow Australians, I have travelled to tantalising Thailand to see what all the fuss is about. In fact I have had four Thailand holidays staying at four different locations: the islands of Phuket and Koh Samui, the coastal tourist area of Ao Nang in Krabi and the capital city of Bangkok. They are all unique…
So after holidaying in South East Asia on many occasions I have discovered what works well in your holiday wardrobe. I personally like to wear loose fitting dresses in lightweight fabrics that you can get away without ironing.
Koh Samui is one place I could definitely return to again and again, just for the sheer relaxing vibe that it exudes.
Pattaya provided all the perfect things that a thriving beach resort city should offer: long stretches of sandy beaches, world-class resort hotels, water activities aplenty, beachfront restaurants and bars, great shopping and tourist attractions.
However I discovered that this international city gave me a rush of sensory stimulation with its exotic sights, world-class shopping centres, centuries old temples and palaces, the boat-filled congested Chao Phraya River and the state-of-the-art public transport system.
Thailand is still one of the most idyllic travel destination whether you want to relax near the water, walk through the remains of ancient cities or excite your palate with new flavours.
