I recently went on the trip of a lifetime to Thailand for a month with my friend Jade. To experience the country in the best way possible we decided to backpack around to visit as many places as we could. On our travels we visited Bangkok, Chaing Mai, Ko Samui, Ko Phangan, Phuket, Ko Phi Phi and Krabi and had such an amazing time. Elephant riding, white water rafting, mountain trekking, hill tribe visits, the Grand Palace, visiting temples, night markets, boat trips, national park visits and having photos taken with tigers kept us very busy for the month and I thoroughly enjoyed it all.
Soaking up the atmosphere over there was amazing and life over there is so much different to life in England. I loved experiencing how the people in Thailand live and work and the scenery and surroundings were very inspiring - so inspiring that I took over 2000 photos! Here are just a couple to give you a taster of my time there.

Beautiful attention to detail on the temples
