Watch Heather try out one of Bangkok’s many Fish Spas, where hungry sucker fish eat the dead and unhealthy skin from your feet.
We stop by the northern Thai city of Chiang Rai – our last stop in The Land of Smiles before moving on to Laos. There, we drop in on the mindblowing White Temple, a modern take on Buddhist architecture unlike anything we’ve seen before.
We spend a week at the Elephant Nature Park, where old, disabled, and a few other lucky pachyderms get to spend their days relaxing in a more natural setting than most of their hard-working cousins providing elephant rides and performing tricks in shows and circuses.
We explore Thailand’s major northern city, where we sample delicious food and learn how to prepare a few dishes.
Peddling and boating around the ruins of Thailand’s ancient capital which was swamped by the October 2011 floods.
We stop by the Khao Yai National Park, just a few hours outside of Bangkok, where we spot a whole bunch of interesting wildlife.
We find ourselves in Bangkok once again, taking the opportunity to visit some attractions we missed the first time around, shop, eat and relax.
We take a trip into the national park and stay in one of the famous floating bamboo bungalows right on the beautiful lake.
We finally leave Thailand’s beautiful beaches and head inland to Southern Thailand’s largest national park, Khao Sok. Here, we go on a mission to see the huge and bizarre parasitic flower, Rafflesia Kerrii.
We try to enjoy ourselves diving and on the beaches of Khao Lak, but are haunted by the thousands of deaths that occurred here during the 2004 Tsunami.
