The great thing about being an expat in a foreign land is that I can still play tourist anytime I want. Sometimes…okay most of the time; I scoff at tourists, who seem incapable of obeying the unspoken rules of the land of smiles in their silly neon color Chang beer tank tops, or (my favorite) the girls walking around the malls in their bikinis. Listen ladies, there is no beach around here so it’s not acceptable to parade your body in a skimpy bikini in places of business but I digress.
1. Ao Nang is a great place to stay if you are looking for something to do in the evenings, lots of bars and restaurants many with live music every night. Have dinner at Crazy Gringos and enjoy their signature spicy mango margarita, it is to die for!!!
2. Low season/rainy season is the time to go in my opinion! Still enough people visiting to make it feel like you aren’t alone but not so many as to where you can’t see the beach. In addition, while we were visiting in July, the rain only came twice and it was a short rain, similar to what you get when visiting Florida.
To my friends and fellow bloggers that actually read the stuff I write about:
My husband is Clark Griswold and vacations stay pretty busy with no time to really stop and write… When I do have time to actually put something down I plan on doing a post for each day like France with travel tips and reviews to help you plan your vacation if you ever visit this side of the world.
So for those of you that are on twitter you can follow me at @beckyhorace and from there I have been posting pictures throughout the day of all of the beautiful things we see here!! If you look at the blog main page there is a twitter follow button on the right hand side and a ticker with tweets I have already posted!
