As I leave Thailand behind (except to be back at the airport next week), I am so grateful for having had the experience. While Bangkok is definitely not my favorite destination, I had the opportunity to see something unlike I’ve ever seen before and am glad for it. I loved Chiang Mai and fortunately it gave me a taste of true Thai culture. I met a few others who agreed that getting out of Bangkok and seeing other parts of the country are a real treat. So my advice is, see Bangkok for a couple of days but plan to go elsewhere. I’d like to some day see the beaches in Phuket and more of the countryside. People here are so friendly and go out of their way to please you. I hope you all can make it here someday.
