I first rode a moped as a teenager riding around a mates back garden. Fast forward 20 years and I found myself renting a ped in Thailand I was a little nervous, but it’s the best way to get around as it gives you so much more freedom to explore. I’ve jotted down 10 tips that I think will help any newby riders no matter where you are in the World.
Wat Saen Muang Ma Luang, a hidden gem just off the beaten track. #WatSaenMuangMaLuang #wat #temple
A historic Wat on the edge of the old city with a intricately carved, golden facade #WatChaiSiPhum #Wat #temple #chiangmai
Terminal 21 is a shopper’s paradise and a foodies haven, both for locals and travelers alike #Terminal21 #SanFrancisco #Pier21 #Bangkok #Shopping
My first foray into the hussle and bussle of Bangkok was the famous Khao San Road with bars almost door to door along the entire road, you can find anything along here day or night, but it was at night that it really came to life. I even found something that had been on my bucket list. If you are the adventurous type like me, Khao San Road also offers some of the world’s most exotic food…
If you are looking for electronics equipment or just like your gadgets then Pantip Plaza is a must.
If you like shopping then this is the place for you.
High above the City is one of northern Thailand’s most sacred temples, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and is definitely something that shouldn’t be missed. The architecture, statues, murals and shrines here are nothing short of breathtaking.
Although it may not seem very special upon first glance as you enter the main gate, you look across and see the intricately carved building then you start to think perhaps there’s more to this place than meets the eye. #Temple #ChiangMai #Thailand
This was my favourite activity to do in Thailand. I’ve always wanted to bathe with elephants. I wasn’t interested in riding them, so I made sure I went to a no riding sanctuary. It was made even more pleasurable by the fact they had two baby elephants there at the time, one of which was only 2 days old and was so dam cute. This is something I think everyone should add to their bucket list #Elephants #Chiangmai
