One month in Krabi, Thailand in five videos.
KRABI, Thailand- I’ve been here for nearly one month. It was a different kind of Thailand than I remember from my early travels here in 2005 and 2007.
We rented a house on the outskirts of town, right on the brink between the tourist-laden center and the villages beyond. If I walked out of my door and went right, I was in the city; if I went left, I was in the countryside.
This kind of versatility allowed us to get the best of all worlds. We were able to make friends with the pad Thai lady, the people at the dim sum restaurant, and the trainers at the Muay Thai gym next door while still engaging the tourist ventures whenever we wished.
This was a completely different experience than I had in Thailand as a young traveler — where I pretty much just partied in Bangkok with everyone else.
