After being in Pai for a couple of days, it was time to go back to Chiang Mai. I had almost a week here, because I had a flight planned from Chiang Mai to Hong Kong. This meant: lots of chill days with nice people.
After Chiang Mai, I decided to go to Pai together with another Dutch girl. Which meant: going with a bus on a road with 762 curves. Yes, 762. In a van with a sign with ‘don’t fart here’ in it (really random). I was really happy that I’m never sick in cars.
After my flight from Krabi, I arrived at my first destination in Northern Thailand: Chiang Mai. It was still pretty early when I arrived in my hostel that was, besides the man from the reception, completely empty.
Last minute, we decided to go to Koh Phi Phi. I already knew it was a touristic island, but the perfect beaches with blue water where too attractive. And I have to say, after being in the beautiful but quiet Koh Lanta it was also nice to have some life again.
After Krabi it was time for my first island in Thailand: Koh Lanta! I wanted to visit a less touristic island and Koh Lanta seemed like the perfect choice.
I didn´t really feel like flying again, so I had the great idea to take the bus from Bangkok to Krabi, which took 15 hours. After not sleeping in the bus, I arrived in Krabi with lots of stickers on my shirt. You got a sticker every time you had a different bus or van, and yes. In Thailand you never know in how many different buses you are gonna be in advance.
