Travel Thailand without packing a 700 page guide book
[your phone/tablet is lighter, faster
and carries hundreds of times more info]

Thailand Travel is written by me, Garry Worger, a Canadian "wandererwho has been returning to Thailand… 6 months every year… for over a decade…

Created for those who are thinking about a trip to the exotic Orient… SE Asia

And  wondering if it’s worth visiting.
IT IS!

I’ve fallen head-over-heels with this part of the world, and want you to understand why I am a promoter of visiting or living here.

I've lived 3 of those ten years in Bangkok, and 5 in Chiang Mai, so I can write about those with some authority... I know what I like! LOL

AND I've spent several months in other places
[Cha Am, Hua Hin, Chiang Rai, Phuket]

PLUS visited lots more.


I provide "real" Thailand travel information...
[the good and the bad/ugly]

I've got to admit the bad/ugly is real.

  • a few rip-off places that frustrating to visit
    I'll guide you past these
  • occasional scams pop up
    My Blog and Newsletter have alerts
  • unintelligible government regulations that once in a while trip up visitors
    My Blog and Newsletter have warnings about these
  • cultural “quirks” that you should understand
    I've got a webpage about these, and Newsletter Subscribers can download my no-cost report 

ON THE PLUS SIDE...Did I mention that I love being here? 

  • There are so many exotic things to eat, to see and to do!
    laid back and relaxed, too, if that's your fancy...

  • It’s safe
    if you’re sensible!

  • It’s friendly
    Thailand is known as The Land of Smiles

  • It’s warm!
    I originally came here to leave Canadian winters behind

This is what I leave behind in Canada for 6 months of the year!

I abandon Alberta snow storms for Thai beach resorts...
a great tradeoff!
