Don't Go Fire Jumping and 9 other things I Learned in ThailandWednesday, November 24, 2010
1 Sawasdee Ka is used by females and the end word Kap by males. I initially thought that I would use Ka when talking to women and Kap when talking to men. That took me a while.
2 Thailand is the best country for delicious, spicy, cheap and can't-quite-get-over-it gastronomic goodness.
3 It's possible to travel to Thailand on the cheap. Here are a few tips to help you out. But 8,000 PHP for 9 days probably won't be enough as I found out on my challenge.
4 The southern islands of Thailand, Koh Samui and Koh Pangan in particular, are not so rustic after all..
5 It's not so scary to travel alone. In fact, it can actually be quite fun.
6 Thailand (and the world) is filled with generous, kind and friendly strangers so long as you have a ready smile and an open mind. And you might just run into old friends and make new ones on the many islands of Thailand.
7 Full Moon Party on Koh Pangan is a crazy must-do-before-you-die get hitched experience. But don't forget to read the guide before going. Fire jumping and buckets of alcohol just don't mix.
8 If you can skip one touristy thing in Thailand, skip the floating markets. Or at least go to an authentic one.
9 Even if you're having wat-overload from the many temples of Bangkok, Ayutthaya is still worth the few hours drive from the city. Majestic isn't enough to describe this temple complex. And be sure to rent a bike and go around on your own!
10 I've said this many times before, Thailand truly is Ah-mazing. Here's why I keep coming back..
Thanks for joining me on my Thailand adventures!
