Marissa continues her story about her post-college solo trip around the world!
- A well-traveled country
- Was mostly in Northern Thailand
- Friend of a friend in Chiang Mai - did a lot of eating
- Ate a lot of Pad ka Pow, but can’t find it here very easily
- Took the “slow boat” - takes 2 days to get to Luang Prabang
- Went up in a hot air balloon
- Ate bat, rat, & pig knuckles
- Went to angkor wat - largest uncovered ruined temple
- Most people hire a tuk tuk to take them around
- She spent 2 days there and still didn’t see all of it
- Even with touristy and busy places, there’s a lot of local knowledge of where to go when for the best experience
Ho Chi Minh City
- One of the busiest she had been to
- Follow the old lady across the street
- Hoi An
Got into a train wreck
- Train hit a dump truck, derailed several cars, it was fatal for some people
- The ambulance there sounded like an American ice cream truck (pop goes the weasel)
- One of her favorite places, food was very good
- Many school kids who wanted to practice their English
Flew home through Seol
- If you have more than a 2 hour layover, they will give you a day visa and give you a free tour!
- One of the coolest airports
If you could only return to one city, which would it be?
