Pai

Pai – the village built for tourists

Pai in North Thailand – with only 2300 habitats – is now one of the most visited backpacking places in Thailand. I don’t know how it was there before so many tourists came but what I was about to find there was everything else than a small village in the mountains. The whole city is built to fit the needs and demands of modern tourists. There are probably more Hotels and Hostels then traditional houses and one Burger place next to the other.

Trekking Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai – The true adventure capital of Asia

Basically, Thailand can be divided into three parts when it comes to activities and things to do for tourists. On the one hand, there is Bangkok which is a mega city and offers anything a big city could offer. The south is to relax with a lot of beautiful islands and beaches. And then there is the north, my favorite part, full of action and nature, cheaper and activities as far as you can see.

Trekking Chiang Mai

Northern Thailand 2-day Trekking – Fully into nature

While I was in Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand, I did a two-day trekking tour to the Karen villages. Karen people are people who live in Thailand but don’t see themselves as Thai people. They have their language and live deep in the jungle. They still have the very remote and old houses, and most of them have no electricity. They cook mostly on fire and have their meat production – chicken or pork running in their front yard. Very interesting to see how these people live and nature was beautiful.

A day with the Elephants

In Chiang Mai, I went on a day tour to the Elephants at an Elephant sanctuary. We could feed them, give them medicine and after that, we could bath one of the elephants. I was a fantastic experience, and I can only recommend you do it too. Just pay attention that you don’t ride an elephant, please make sure before the booking if there is no riding included.

Food in Thailand

Thailand – The country food is enough reason to come back

There are so many reasons to go back to Thailand, but the food here would be reason enough to go back. There is such a wide variety of things you can try, especially in the North on the night markets I can’t decide what I want to eat. There is so much good food, too much to try everything. My absolute favorite meal is Pad Thai, but also Rotee and green curry count as my favorite meals.

scorpion in Bangkok

Scorpions and other insects – the taste test in Bangkok

To be honest, I think that insects, scorpions, and worms are the nutrition of the future. Without going too much into detail – To produce one Kilogram of insects a lot less water food and CO2 emissions are produced. Thinking about the fact that meat production is one of the biggest reasons for climate change I would welcome this idea. Besides, insects need a lot less space and have more proteins than meat.

Bangkok

Why do I love Bangkok so much?

In the last three months of my life, I visited a lot of cities and a lot of countries, but no city got me this feeling Bangkok can give me. I love this city, and I didn’t even last one day for me to fall in love. Bangkok is so amazing that I actively play with the thought of coming here and settle down for a few weeks here.

What I think from Phuket

I heard so much about Phuket, good things and also a lot of bad things. I finally decided to visit it by myself and to form my own opinion. Now after three days of spending there I still don’t know what I should think about it – there are some good but also some not so right sides about it. In this blog, I want to tell what I experienced, so you are prepared and know what you are getting into if you are planning on visit Phuket.
