Thailand 2023: New Beginnings

In January 2023, I decide to return to my almost-native continent: Asia.

The purpose of this trip being mostly to stop and think about what I want from my life, from my 20s. Along with photography, writing a screenplay, journaling, and rediscovering new cultures.

BANGKOK

I begin my travels with a one-way flight for Bangkok, as any good South East Asia backpacker should. The rest of the trip is entirely improvised; every decision made at the last second. I excitingly step out of the plane: heat. Courageously deciding to make my way downtown by public transport, only to be stuck in a suburb looking for a bus stop that doesn’t exist… after a 3 hour commute, I prevail: the adventure begins.

SOUTH THAILAND

After a few days acclimatising to the East, I began my coastal adventures. Beginning in the small tourist city of Ao Nang (Krabi) off the West coast Andaman Sea, continuing to Koh Lanta, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao, and Khao Sok.

NORTH THAILAND

Relaxed in the South and in the islands. Now’s the time for some more city exploration. I finish my Thailand adventures with three weeks in the North, staying mostly in Chiang Mai but also checking out Pai and Chiang Rai. Chiang Mai was a magical, young, energetic city where I really clicked with the vibe.

The Thai adventures end with a 4am wakeup in Chiang Rai. My next step being the renowned ‘Slow Boat’ from Chiang Khong to Luang Prabang, Laos.
