Thailand, a famous country by their food, nature, custom and culture. Sour and spicy food, seafood, Buddhism, temples, Muay Thai boxing, Ladyboys, beautiful beaches, parties, crystal water for scuba diving. Thailand is a dream land for so many people around the world.
This time our main destination is Phuket and Phi Phi, the islands from south of Thailand. The Phuket island have more entertainment than natural beauty, show of the ladyboys, Muay Thai competition, temples, local foods, and we rent the motorcycles there, that is the best option, because it is cheap, easy to run, better to cut the traffic, and the public transportation there is not often enough. Running in Phuket we realized the one curious thing about the people there, they love a lot the Thailand flag, you can see the national flag in everywhere, that is a very nice feeling to me, I felt the Thai really love their country, when the people really love they can make the better place and also make anyone feels nice.
We were planing for the one day tour to Phi Phi island, but when we arrived there, we decided to stay one more day, because the place was fantastic, we didn't bring the clothes and personal hygienic items for that, didn't booked any room for a night also, we just arranged all on the time, that was fun. Walking on the island, we discovered there have a lot of foreigners' stores, and the most of them did the same as us, decided to stay, but the difference is they came to start a new life, doing the business and we just being there for fun, long tail boat trip around the island, fire party on the night, great foods, that was very nice. Another interesting thing there are the warnings for the tsunami, Phi Phi island was destroyed by a tsunami in the end of 2004.
Back to Phuket, now we are going to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, we haven't much time, so we chose the real palace and floating market to visit. The floating market is a unique place, people living there the boat to move, they sell the food, fruits, clothes and so many stuff on the boat, our intention was go to the smaller and closer floating market from hostel, but a Thai cheated us, took us to the bigger and farther floating market, in fact this one is better to visit, but we lost a lot of the time, and we hadn't the enough time to visit the royal palace.
Thailand is indeed a beautiful country for visiting, the people there are very friendly, there are some cheaters trying to take the advantage from tourists, but it is normal from the country having a great social difference, just be careful for that. By the way, Thailand is a place really worth to visit, even for living.
