34,000+ miles in 2.5 weeks through 6 cities in 3 countries

Bangkok, shopping, food, and the Grand Palace

Due to the increasing cost of airline tickets, our original plan to visit Ko Samui was canceled. Instead, we spent our entire time in Thailand exploring Bangkok.


Despite being an entertaining way to get around the city, avoid Tuk Tuk’s. Drivers may seem friendly, but their ulterior motive is to get you to spend money by taking you to shops or stores on the way to your intended destination. Our Tuk Tuk driver took us to a building which he described as a museum. Upon stepping inside, we realized that we had been taken to a pricey jewelry store.

The Grand Palace – used as the royal residence of the King of Thailand. In order to tour the Palace, you must wear long pants. Naturally, the majority of us were wearing shorts which we covered with pants rented right outside the gates. Each statue, painting, and building within was a collection of intricate [colorful] details.
