The historical city of Chiang Mai is Thailand’s second largest city and still preserves some of the atmosphere of an ancient village alongside its modern urban charm. Be sure to plan extra time here! Lots of people, myself included, plan to stay for just a few days and end up wanting to stay for more! I loved the city, full of culture, friendly locals, incredible food markets, dozens of beautiful temples, a relaxed vibe and beautiful landscapes.
Bangkok is known for its chaotic, crowded streets, cheap prices, wild nightlife and never ending traffic. At first I wasn’t sure and to be honest i’m still not. With its pollution, noise and crowds. The city is like marmite people either love or hate it. It seems after talking to others that If you were to spend more time here it would start to reveal its secrets and grow on you. Certainly If you like to eat then this place is full-on food, especially for adventurous foodies, there’s probably no better dining destination in the world.
James Bond Island is a famous landmark in Phang Nga Bay. Once a quiet island known as Khao Phing Kan, It found its way onto the international tourist map through its starring role in the James Bond movie ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’. A distinctive feature of this famous bay is the number of sheer limestone cliffs that vertically jut out of the emerald-green water.
