Thailand - Elephant Nature Park (Part 2)

Elephant Nature Park... Just wow. I have had the best week ever and can 100% say it has changed my life. We chose to do the one week volunteering with elephants so that we could really get to experience the whole place and it was just magical. There are one day options and overnight options too, however these don't include much volunteering (if any) resulting in less time experiencing the elephants and their amazing personalities.

Thailand - Elephant Nature Park (Part 1)

If you love elephants and really want to see some whilst you're travelling, then the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand is totally the place to go! I don't think I've ever been somewhere that has bought up so many emotions in one day. It's inspirational in ever way possible and the world needs to see this place.

Thailand - Lopburi

If you want to see Monkeys then Thailand is definitely your place. They're everywhere so you're bound to see one every now and again if you look hard enough. However, if this isn't enough for you (like it wasn't for me) and you want to see HUNDREDS of monkeys in the same place and have them jump all over you and steal everything they can possibly get their hands on (I wasn't planning on that), then Lopburi is the place to be.

Thailand - Ayutthaya


Ayutthaya is such an adorable place and I totally recommend anyone to visit if you have a spare couple of days free. It is an hour by minivan from Bangkok, costs 60THB (about £1.20) and you can get on one at Victory Monument which is quite central in Bangkok city.

Thailand - Bangkok

I've been here only three days but it's official... I love Thailand! We're currently in Bangkok which is sooooo hot (38 degrees it was today), so I am pretty much dying of sweat and just looking like a massive blob of grossness for the duration of the time we've been here! But this place is just soooooo lovely though. The people are incredibly nice and you just can't help but smile all the time. Yesterday was the first day of the Thai new year and some man just stopped us in the street to tell us everything we should go and see, wrote us out an itinerary, found us a tuk tuk with a good price that he got agreed for us and shook our hands with a HUGE smile and said 'Welcome to Thailand', before going on his way. So adorable!

Abu Dhabi - The Grand Mosque


The UAE is made up of 7 Emirates (Dubai being one of them), so we decided that we would visit another of those 7 Emirates. About an hour and a half out of Dubai by car,  you come across Abu Dhabi. This is where we spent a day. It was really lovely to explore another part of the UAE as they're all very different from each other.

Dubai - Desert Safari

We ended up in the desert again last night (clearly you can't get us away from it), but this was a completely different trip to the last one when we were camping. Desert safaris are advertised all over the place out here so we thought why not book one and see what it's like. You can get ones that pick you up from your apartment which are around 150 AED (£30ish) or ones that pick you up from a certain location that you make your own way to, and these are around 95 AED (£19ish). They all include the same activities and last from mid afternoon until the evening when they drop you back into the city/where you're staying, so we went for the cheaper option to save us some money as where they pick you up from is only a 15 minute drive from us. Bad idea.

Dubai - The Miracle Gardens/Global Village

A couple of days ago we went to 'The Miracle Gardens' and they are so beautiful; totally worth a visit if you have a couple of hours to spare! It was 30 AED to get in to the gardens which is around £6, so not too expensive at all. It is full of amazing flower arrangements that look just how I always have imagined the Alice in wonderland gardens to look! They're really incredible but really odd at the same time. There are buildings that are made out of lemons and Beatles (the cars) turned upside down with flowers sprouting out of them and water flowing through. There are lots of places to get something to eat/drink too and some seating areas in the flowers, so makes for a great place to chill out for a while.
