The tour just finished our island experiences at Koh Tao and Koh Phangan. We went on a super fun pub crawl in Koh Tao where we went to 4 different bars; the night was complete with a pool party and a ladyboy show as well. We all had a great time hitting up all the pubs and getting very drunk off of cheap buckets and Chang.
Next we went to Koh Phangan for even more fun experiences. The first night we went to another pool party where we met up with the NYE tour group, the next day we watched some live Muay Thai fighting which two of the guides even did a special round together (probably the funniest thing to watch so far) and then of course we got the full moon party experience where we celebrated bringing in 2017!! The party was amazing and there were so many people there that I'm surprised we didn't get lost or lose each other but all the guides really kept a watching eye on us all which was greatly appreciated.
Now we are going to the Krabi homestay to get completely disconnected from the world (there's no wifi there) and really relax with a waterfall trek, kayaking and hot springs.
Not sure if I mentioned this before in my blog but my #1 travel tip for Asia is to bring travel size Kleenex things as toilet paper isn't always easy to come by here and if you can't "rough it" like me very well they will be a life saver!!
That's all for now folks. I will be blogging again for the last few weeks of this tour.
Hi there from beautiful Vietnam!!
My name is Amber, some of you may have met me last December on the "Blissful Bali" tour or even just recently on the "Vietnam Explorer" tour that just passed but if not I am a 27 year old girl from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada who did not start travelling soon enough in my life so I am currently doing a 3 month adventure around Asia trying to get my fill before I get "too old" although you never too old to travel or even start travelling.
I work in a office back home in a job that keeps me on my toes and has me using my brain in all sorts of ways all day long taking care of 4 needy guys with one of my best friends from college. I live on an acreage with my sister, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am short with a what I have been told is either an annoying or adorable small voice (I like to think its cute but my friend just told me otherwise...good thing I sent him back to Canada today lol). I also have the most amazing and supportive boyfriend ever waiting for me at home whom I cannot wait to get back to but Asia was calling my name ever since I got a small taste of it last year.
I will be embarking on the 3 week Thailand tour starting on December 21st and I cannot wait to blog about it so I can share the adventure as well as remind myself the fun I am having/had while I am there. Before I start that tour however I will be in Phuket doing yoga twice a day and visiting all the beaches I can get my hands on for the next 10 days. After the 3 week tour, I am doing a 2 week volunteer project with the elephants for 1 week and than teaching english to kids in Cambodia, and then I am doing the Yogalife tour with LBW, and then finally staying at the Tipsy Turtle hostel in Cambodia for 1 week. Needless to say I will be travelling on a budget so I will give tips as much as I can incase anyone else will be doing the same. Tip#1 blog for LBW and get an extra activity for free
