I’ve been checking out the blogosphere for travel ideas for the Land of Smiles. Here are just a few of the most helpful links:
With plenty of posts on getting around, budgeting, and destinations, Travel Happy is a site I find myself returning to over and over.
I love Dan and Audry’s site, Uncornered Market — they’ve been traveling for 3 years and their site is a perfect mix of great concise writing, inspiring photos, and useful tips. They’re currently in Bolivia, but this older post from Thailand really has me jazzed to get on the road and stuff my face until I can’t walk. Shrimp and asparagus stir fry for 25 baht? Yes, please.
Legal Nomads has a great post on what to do in the crazy, chaotic city that is Bangkok. I’m really looking forward to landing here and exploring. I’ll eventually make my way to the more tranquil beaches and islands, but I know I’ll be drenched in adrenaline from the last minute trip preparations when I arrive. Sounds like a perfect time to dive into the madness.
I’d be remiss not to mention the best independent travel guide I’ve found for SE Asia — tons of helpful, current information here. Highly recommended.
