When my boyfriend went to a university before I went to college I was envious. I thought I did the same thing, but I decided to take advantage of a year of reduced tuition fees and then think about traveling. When he returned, we celebrated, talked about his feast, and looked at the photographs. A few years later I will ask again about the trip, this time to get advice as I plan my trip to this incredible country. My first advice was to not only come to Bangkok and settle there. He said that a lot of passengers fell into the trap, tempted by cheap bars, entertainment, and the rich food here. He said that my first destination should be clearly planned. I would also like to make sure that there are no festivals in town when I arrive because it is much harder to travel. So he picked up my first destination (Ko Samui, because I was trying to dive) and moved to his next advice.
