Thailand Travel Itinerary

By now you know I just got back from a 2 week trip to Thailand. So many people reached out asking for my itinerary, so here it is...kind of! This trip was intense so I will break it down into several posts: travel itinerary, detailed itinerary, what to pack, etc. Planning this trip was a full time job so please take advantage of my itinerary. One thing you need to keep in mind is it takes a very long time to get to Thailand from America, like a VERY long time (but so worth it); so plan on 2 weeks if you're doing both the North and South of Thailand.
