Hey guys!

I am about to embark on my first big adventure. I am going to be spending a month in Thailand. From the 22nd of January to the 28th of February, I am basically buying a ticket and getting a hotel for the first 3 nights. Then I am completely in the unknown. I have found lots of resources about trips planned in a guide book. However, I donít want to have everything all planned out for me.

I want to see architecture, some forests and of course the beaches. I am flying in to Bangkok, and wanted to spend at least a week at the end of my trip sitting on a beach, watching the ocean, and meeting people. My overall goal for Thailand is to get out of Portland. I am not expecting anything, except a break from my normal life.

Any ideas on how I can spend my other 27 days in this beautiful country would be much appreciative.

Thanks

I liked it in the jungle in I-San, it was very nice and peaceful along the Mekong river.

Bangkok, I'm not too fond of, but it was interesting for a few days anyway.

I really enjoyed my crazy Thai massage, you can read my blog if you are interested: http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog/starlagurl/23/tpod.html

You said you want to see some forests.

A couple of options for you:

From Bangkok Khao Yai National Park isn't too far. It is big and worth seeing. You could spend a bit of time there.

If since you are heading down to the beaches - maybe spend some time at Khao Sok on the way. I have heard a stay on the raft houses at Khao Sok is pretty cool - you can hear the gibbons calling in the morning and so on.


Have a great time, enjoy yourself and please tread lightly on the environment and culture of Thailand
