Thailand: A 3D/2N Short Itinerary Trip

Yes it was just a very short trip to Thailand, but hell I care because I made sure that I maximized each and every second of my stay and have a worthwhile journey around this country. For these 3 Days and 2 Nights, I've appreciated Thailand's unique and colorful culture, tasted their local and famous cuisines, rode almost all types of transportation, and experienced local scenery at its finest.

It was really tough for me planning for this trip because this was my first backpacking experience. Well, I admit I'm not yet a certified backpacker and I still haven't experienced sleeping in hostels and guest houses, but I guess this is a good start for me!

TRAVEL TIP: Research, research, and research - Simply the key to learn more about the place prior to your trip. Of course first of all, know when's the perfect time visiting a certain place, then try searching for cheap flights and discounted hotel room accommodations. If you are doing CouchSurfer, use it to your advantage to save big bucks!

It really isn't enough visiting Thailand for a short period because they have a lot of scenic spots to offer to visiting tourists. Other than the places listed above, other tourist-worthy places are Damnoen Flaoting Market, Chatuchak Market, Chiang Mai, and Phuket.

Hopefully the next time I visit Thailand, I already know how to speak Thai language. :)
