Bangkok

Pai

  • Stay at Buzzas hostel. Chill but social, with a nice pool and lounge area.
  • Rent a motorcyle anywhere.
  • Soak at the Tha Pai Hot Springs. Each cascading pool is 1°C hotter than the next.
  • Watch the sunset at Two Huts cafe. Go early to grab a hammock.
  • Eat dinner at Na’s Kitchen. There’s usually a line.
  • Listen to live music at Jazz House. Mostly rock cover bands. The host looks like Jesus and often sings along.

Chiang Mai

Khao Sok National Park

  • Stay at Khao Sok Rainforest Resort. Enjoy the pool.
  • Eat a pizza at Chao.
  • Book an overnight tour with Coco Hostel. Sleep in a floating bungalow on the lake. Maybe bring a weed cookie to share under the stars.

Khao Lak

The diving wasn’t great that day, and in retrospect I wish I would have spent more time in Railay. But if you do go

Railay

Koh Lanta
