Today’s post will be about one of my favorite places I’ve ever visited. THAILAND. I have a bunch of great memories from there and I will never forget them. It was a fun time with the most awesome group of friends.
We particularly were on a small island Koh Samui, more on the South of Thailand.
To begin with, for me, Koh Samui is that kind of place where almost everything may seem unorganized, crowded, and dirty, but is still so beautiful and fun to explore.
People were extremely kind, nice, and willing to help. The most of them have almost nothing, live in some things we can’t even call a house and yet they are so happy.
People use scooters for the transport across the island. We also borrowed one of those. It was there really cheap and there is a place for renting the scooters on every corner.
One of the first things we have noticed after the very first day was the huge number of random dogs crossing the road all the time. No one really owns a dog but at the same time, the dogs belong to everyone. People put food in front of their homes or restaurants for these dogs. The best thing was that no one runs them over.
As I have mentioned before, the streets seem pretty messy and stuffed with all kinds of stuff but that is their culture and it is normal over there.
Besides our hotel beach, we also wanted to see some others. So we took our scooters and visited a couple of different ones. All of them were so beautiful, long, and clean.
After the beach time, we headed back on the roads to find some place to eat. Firstly, I was so scared to try something new, but then I fell in love with Thai food. The price of the food was really low compared to Europe or the US. You could have a full meal for less than $5.
Things have gotten wild as the nightlife started. Hundreds of tourists out in streets, nightclubs, tens of small shops right next to each other, and box meetings every night.
The most ridiculous things I saw were these “massage saloons” with a “happy ending.” You could see them all around, right next to each other. Women were sitting outside with mini skirts on and almost naked, calling the tourists into the pink salons, not ashamed of anything.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post :)! I loved Thailand and I would definitely come back if I could!
PS: one of the best things was the incredible fruit.
A big THANK YOU belongs to Zdenko, Filip, and Gabika which I love so much. ❤
