My Favorite Vacation in Thailand
When I saw Yellow Zebra Safaris were launching a competition and challenging bloggers to write about their favorite vacation I knew I had to write about Thailand.
I visited Thailand a few years ago with my best friend for 3 weeks and it was the best vacation I have been on so far. We spent 3 weeks traveling from Chiang Mai in the North of Thailand all the way down to Krabi in the south, before island hopping our way back up to Bangkok.
What made Thailand my favorite vacation
Thailand had everything I wanted in a vacation; action, adventure, and culture. I loved exploring the ancient temples in Bangkok and Ayutthaya. The history and beauty there is exquisite. We also ventured further north to the city of Chiang Mai where we spent 3 days hiking up mountains, sliding down waterfalls and trekking through the jungle. During those 3 days, we stayed in a local village with a tribe who shared with us their food and hospitality. It really was the most incredible experience.
Although, after a week of nonstop temple exploring and hiking in the north of Thailand I was happy to head south to do some island hopping.
The second part of the vacation we completely changed the pace. After camping and hiking, we were ready for some luxury, so booked a few nights in a luxury hotel in Phuket. For me, it’s always so important to balance out action and adventure with a bit of luxury and pampering!
The last 2 weeks of our vacation we spent hopping from island to island. Eating amazing Thai street food, getting to know the local customs and visiting more temples of course! We even managed to squeeze in a few days at a yoga retreat center.
I can honestly say it was the best vacation experience of my life. It felt liberating to have so much freedom to make plans, break plans, and be completely spontaneous.
This trip was also the birth of Claire’s Itchy Feet! Travel blogs were so helpful for me when traveling to Thailand that I decided to start my own to add in all of the extra things I learned in Thailand that I hadn’t found on blogs.
Tanzania, my next dream destination
If there is one continent I want to explore more it would be Africa. I have already spent time in The Gambia, Siera Leone, Ghana, and South Africa. But one place I am dying to go is Tanzania.
Ever since my first visit to The Gambia and Cape Town back in 2005 I knew I wanted to return and experience the magic of a safari in Tanzania. Yes, I know other African countries have amazing safaris too. But do they have the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Kilimanjaro, and Zanzibar?
I want to experience a safari in Tanzania because it has so many of the things I love in a vacation. Wildlife, action, adventure, and culture. Enjoying a safari with Yellow Zebra
Safaris would also mean being able to balance all of that action and adventure with the luxury of staying in beautiful places and exquisite service.
