It was kind of awkward. He obviously didn’t speak english. My Thai is pretty bad. But somehow I managed to get across to him that I wanted to fill up my empty bottle with moonshine.
I just saw this video and thought I’d share it with everyone, it’s pretty cool.
THAILAND TRAVEL ADVISORY WARNING: Adorable orphan puppies will follow you back to your bungalow and sleep on your front steps. Heartbreaking awes will then ensue from all members of your group and an uncontrollable need to feed the adorable orphans will be unavoidable.
We loved Pai so much we ended up staying there for 2.5 weeks! We even bought a sticker to stick on our laptop that will show the world our love for this place. It really is a unique gem in Thailand!
Here is 7 reasons why we loved it so much.
Chiang Mai’s Sunday Night Market is packed full of great buys! No where did we spot a single knock off watch, stiletto blade, or a fake mont bloc pen. Instead, many of the vendors are artists selling their own personal hand made wares.
I thought our cat Charlie was the only cat that sat around looking silly with his tongue sticking out until the day we met this little guy on the island of Koh Tao.
I’ve seen pictures of Angkor Wat and couldn’t help to think this was like a mini appetizer for what we will see there. It really made me eager to get our asses to Cambodia. But in the meantime it was great to appreciate what is left of this old city.
Soon, our number was called and we got up with smiles and handed over our numbered coloured card to the desk. They fingered some papers and then ushered us off to another section while giving us a new coloured numbered card and told us to sit down and wait again.
Mixed up amongst all the beauty of the Grand Palace is a large amount of ugly in disguise. Friendly, well spoken Thai’s, dressed in “uniforms” with maps in their hands. They stand outside of all the entrances of any the Wats in the Grand Palace area with big smiles and approach you as a friend asking if you need help.
Be smart like us and pay the slight bit extra to get a long tail boat and driver to yourself. For slightly more than what a couple would pay to be with 20 other people, we got a private island tour for only 1200 baht. He will take you to the sights you want to go to and you can stay for as long as you like at each site.
