A few tips for your solo trip to Thailand

Getting around and staying safe, etc

Thailand is both a great and not-so-good place for solo travelling, and I’d like to share with you some tips on how to plan and experience a solo trip here in Thailand so that you can make the most of your time here.


Staying safe in Thailand

Thailand isn't dangerous but you do need to be smart

As a new teacher considering where to live and work, safety is an important factor. Even if you don't think too much about it, I am sure your family will.


Bangkok road rage

Nutters can be anywhere at any time.

Generally, one of the top questions I get asked from people who have never visited Thailand is: is it safe? They automatically assume that, because Thailand is still considered (by some sources) to be a third-world country, it must be at least a bit dangerous.


Helmets are not fashion accessories

Wear your helmets people!

Every day, hundreds of tourists descend on Koh Samui and for the time that they are here, seem to leave their brains at home.


Surviving Thailand's roads

How to avoid becoming just another statistic

Most Thais do not have any understanding or desire to learn road safety. If you grew up in my generation you had Tufty and his gang drilling the green cross code into your brain, and those lessons never get forgotten as the years pass by.
