Thailand Photo Diary – Part 1

Hello dolls. Hope you are having a lovely weekend! We arrived in Paris early Saturday morning and since then I haven’t done much except sleeping and relaxing. Last night I slept 14 hours so hopefully I’ve got rid of my jet lag by now. Today we went for a long Sunday walk, Paris is so nice now with all the snow but also completely paralyzed by all the snow, the buses are out of service and it’s impossible to drive or find a taxi!

I still have lots of pictures from Thailand that I haven’t got to show you, so I thought I’d make a photo diary here on the blog so that I can show you all my pictures. Here is part 1 :)

Arriving in Phuket, we were flying low over this amazing landscape.

Somebody is tired after traveling for 16 hours.

First day on the beach in Krabi, Thailand. The sea was so warm there, almost at the point where it was not even refreshing.

Love this landscape in Krabi region.

One of the islands we visited with the private boat we rented for a day. I would definitely recommend renting a private long tail boat if you go to Thailand, it is not so much more expensive than going on group tours.

This is one of the many huge lizards we saw while in Thailand, the largest one we saw was at the first hotel we stayed at and almost looked like a baby alligator, it was almost 1 meter long…!

On our way to beautiful Railay beach, again I just love this landscape.

Another thing I love… Thai food! We ate thai food every single day in Thailand, both of our hotels had amazing restaurants, even though they did tend to make the food a little bit too spicy for my taste.

I’ve also been drinking at least 1 or 2 coconuts a day in Thailand, it’s the perfect drink on warm, sunny days. I wrote a post about the benefits of coconut water a while ago, read the blog post here.

I will definitely go back to Thailand, hopefully in not too long. I feel like there is so much to see and do so I think next time we go it will be more like a backpacking trip, “high class” backpacking though… Have many of you been to Thailand? Any must-see places?

    I’ve never been to Thailand, but I’d absolutely love to go. It looks like you’ve had an absolutely amazing time, and thank you so much for sharing the pictures so we can all enjoy the scenery too. :) Hope the jet lag goes quickly!

    Thailand is amazing isn’t it? Have you tried Koh Tao? great
    diving and a little quieter than Koh Samui. Also the Thais tend to
    go to Hua Him. That is where the famous spa Chiva Som is located.
    Also, Four Seasons has a place in Chiang Mai – this just shows that
    the area does have a lot of things to do and is bypassed by a lot
    of tourists. I wish I could go now!

    Welcome back! I’ve already been to Bangkok and I loved this city, and I also went to Bali, which was just like heaven, the beaches were amazing! Love the pictures by the way <3

        Thank you dear! Hehe yes, I’ve been wanting to go to Bali as well, we we’re considering it but the travel there was longer than to Thailand.. :)

    I have never been to Thailand but its one of those place you hope you get to see. Your photos make it look peaceful and tropical. Like heaven on earth.

    I lived in Phuket and Bangkok for two years and your Krabi photos are making me miss it so bad! i think you made a great choice for where to stay your first time there. Just a couple suggestions for your next time! : Erawan Falls in Kanchanaburi province a couple hours outside of Bangkok- gorgeous Waterfalls/National Park, Koh Lipe in Satun province- one of my favorite islands, just stunning, albeit a bit hippie/earthy….but there are some nice places to stay. I’d be interested to know if you got a chance to check out any Thai beauty products, there are some good ones! While I was living there I found this amazing face powder that was very inexpensive, but I can’t for the life of me remember the name of it to try and find it online now that I’m back in America. Glad you had a blast, thanks for sharing!

      Oh, that must have been so different, living in Thailand, but also an amazing experience! I’m glad to hear we made a good choice going to Krabi and thank you so much or the suggestions for our text trip there, I can’t wait to see more of Thailand! :) Unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to check out Thai beauty products, I wanted to but wasn’t sure where to look :/
