Since I have committed a few years ago to take an annual destination vacation, Southeast Asia has been at the very top of the list. I plan on taking a trip to this part of the world in the next 2 years, and hopefully will find some willing travel companions to join me. From the beaches to the different islands, unique cultures, and tasty street food, there’s a lot to be excited about. Here are the places and things I am excited to do most:
In terms of places, Thailand is where I want to visist the most. I have alwats thought experiencing Bangkok’s stifling heat and amazing street food would be interesting. Additionally, the islands and beaches of Thailand look like the most incredible places on earth. My sister recently went to the region and spent some time in Phuket – her pictures from the beach there were pretty awe-inspiring.
Other things that I want to spend time doing on such a vacation are: riding a tuk tuk (why ever Uber when this option is aviable?), renting a scooter to get around, visiting an elephant sanctuary, going to an underground street fighting match, and going to a night party on the beach.
Hopefully I will get to do this trip in the winter one of the next few years when it’s cold and snowy here in Chicago (and the pandemic is over).
