it's getting cold....

Recommended Posts

hey folks, it's November in the tundra and my sled dogs are getting COLD.

I think that means it's time to plan a trip down south, just to get away from

the cold and get back into the sunshine. I miss you sunshine!!!!

 

so where's a good place to go for a 3â…” day vacation?

 

Dominican?

Cuba?

Miami?

I might do the Cuba route.

 

A good friend of my mother's went down there to run bike

tours and marry a flamenco dancer. Now that, sounds like heaven.

Fuck yes, Thailand! I can't say enough about this country - it's far too awesome for words.

 

One big point is that the exchange rate is currently $1 CAD to 34 Thai Baht, which is wicked. You can find sweet accomodations (beach-front bamboo huts, or air-con bungalows if you're a sissy) from 200-500 baht a day (which is fairly expensive by Thai standards, but equates to ~$6-15 CAD / day.)

 

Thai food is fucking unbeatable and also cheap as shit. You can get a massive plate of food, easily enough to hold you over for most of the day for about $1 CAD. Large beers are about $2 each, and Thai Rice Whiskey Buckets (1 mickey of rice whiskey, 1 can of coke, 1 bottle of *ephedra* RedBull) for $2 or so, also.

 

If you're a fan of big beach parties, then definately plan to hit Koh Phangan for the monthly Full Moon Party, when the most popular beach on the island is turned into a massive all-night beach party, where you drink your face off and dance all night until the sun comes up. Definately a must-see.

 

If you're up for diving, hit Koh Tao for some of the best diving conditions around Thailand - cheap as shit too; a full open-water diver certification runs you between $100-200 CAN for a 4-day course with 4 open-water (ocean) dives.

 

Plus, Bangkok has the cheapest shopping around. Shoes are $5-10 a pair (any brand name you want), t-shirts are a few bucks each, jeans are like $10, and a grip of cheap-ass black market electronics.

 

Ah, fuck, i can't tell you all the cool shit there is to do in Thailand - if you're just looking for an all-inclusive package, then don't go - you won't be doing yourself any favours to skimp on the experiences that Thailand has to throw in your face.

 

Mos def worth a visit, though.

 

Pictures!

Morning of a full moon party - it's this crowded along the entire beach, which is easily a kilometer or so long

-Not to mention the amazing hand-woven Thai hammocks you can get there.. I don't have any of my pictures loaded up, but you can get HUGE hammocks made with custom colours and shit - they weave em by hand, and it takes about 3 days of work for each hammock. They end up costing about $50 CAD, but you'll never touch another hammock again.. Most comfortable piece of 'furniture' i own, hands down. If you're a hammock afficianado, you owe it to yourself to get one. They don't have those wooden 'spreader' (for lack of a more informed word) bars on em either, they just kind of wrap around you when you lie in em - soooo goddan comfortable.
