Every march I stop business / work commitments and jet off to somewhere exotic on the opposite side of the world. After Sao Paulo and New York, it was time for Thailand. The previous month I had been to India, unfortunately for such a short time. Here it is the first part of my trip to Koh Phi Phi (south of Thailand). After a quick stop in Los Angeles I jumped onto a Korean Airways flight via Seoul to Phuket.  It was an extremely long journey so I recommend to fly from Europe. Arriving in Phuket with only my BACKPACK it was chaos before even leaving the airport, so poorly organised and full of confusion it had already become a mission.  (Tip: you wont need a visa if you are euro passport holder). The following morning I jetted off to Phi phi Island. I know it’s a very popular destination but I  still wanted to see it for myself. As expected it was full of spring breakers… But it was also so beautiful, Paradise in fact! The night of the 16th my friend Mose took me to sleep under the stars at Maya Bay.  Inside our sleeping bags we ate nutella pancakes (instead of birthday cake),  it was one of the most beautiful nights of my life ( I totally recommend it). I decided to stay for the first part of my journey in Koh Phi Phi at a beach resort away from the main city, there’s plenty all around the island and much more quiet, all you need to get there is a taxi boat. So after the peace and quiet I wanted to have some fun and check out the bars. We moved to a hostel in the main village with the rest of backpackers (another experience I wanted to try).

MY TOP TIPS FOR THAILAND
-  Be smart about what you eat and you won’t get sick .  Avoid dodgy fresh food and fruit.  By being picky I ate everything I wanted and was never ill.
- Swap your suitcase for a backpack.. Believe me you’ll feel like a fool if you rock up with your cool suitcase, try the public transport catch a boat or a train.. its cheap and a fun way to see the country and meet people.  Good luck!
-Bargain all the time to get the best deal, the Thais expect this.  
-Respect the law. There are few strict laws to follow but if you miss’em you could be in big trouble.  So do your research on the country before you travel and make yourself aware of customs and laws to avoid any embarrassment or trouble.
-Enjoy paradise!
