In most of the cases you're fist stop into Thailand will be its capital, Bangkok. If you are a fist timer, then it is (unfortunately) a must stop to see the main temples and as a day trip location to the floating markets. Below I'll provide an update on what we did, costs and how we felt about this large city.
In the last (several) years, Thailand became an extremely touristy destination and we thought to take advantage of the crazy grey winter days of Belgium and head over to the sun. It was my first time off to the east side of the world and so everything was completely new.
Please note this post is not relevant during COVID-19 restriction period, but hopefully it will be of use once this goes back to normal.
