Our One Month Thailand Itinerary

Thailand Itinerary(1)

Where did we go?  How did we get there? How long did we stay? We get asked these questions a lot from our friends. So much so, in fact, that I’ve decided to start sharing our itineraries on this site.

These itineraries aren’t perfect.  They may not be best suited for everyone’s tastes and travel preferences (or budgets). They may will include locations/activities/hotels that we regret seeing/doing/staying at.  But here you have ’em.

4 Days On Ko Samui: A Photo Diary

4 Days on Ko Samui, Thailand - A Photo Diary

Ko Samui was the first beach destination on our Thailand itinerary. We were definitely enchanted with this initial sampling of bright turquoise water Thailand has become overly famous for. So much so, in fact, that we did little else during our stay on this island besides frolick on the beach soak up the sun’s rays.
