Adventures in Thailand


In January 2002, we traveled to Thailand, after our visit to Taiwan. Arriving in Bangkok, we flew to Phuket and then traveled an hour north to Khao Lak. From there, we visited the Chieo Lan Reservoir in Khao Sok National Park and went on a three-day snorkel trip to the Similan Islands, in the Andaman Sea. After these adventures, we returned to Bangkok and spent a day exploring this exotic city.

In January 2007, we returned to Thailand, on the end of our visit to Vietnam and Laos. We flew into Chiang Mai and after several days continued on to Bangkok.
