I'm a New York native who left my home to explore the world slowly and thoroughly. I love photography, scuba diving, and reading guidebooks to countries I have no immediate plans to visit. Read more on my blog,


Thailand is what I like to call "backpacking with training wheels!" The country is blanketed in an efficient transportation system, English is widely spoken, prices are low, and there are fellow travelers in every direction. From scuba diving vibrant coral reefs to feeding elephants in the jungle to rock climbing limestone karsts to clambering over ancient temples and cities to snacking on delicious street food in bustling markets, thereís never a dull moment in the Kingdom. Best of all, for true budgeters itís possible to travel Thailand on a mere $30 a day.
