From my previous post regarding my negative experience with a host on the island, I tried asking around on the island to seek for a new host. However, most of them do not need any volunteer during the low season. Luckily for me, Joel was doing a volunteer on building work with B & Meg from The Chai Tent. They accepted me, I believed it was a nice gesture and an opportunity for me and Joel to work and stay together instead.
Not fond of kids and no experience to work with kids nor teaching but somehow, I ended up teaching English to kids in a private school based in Uttaradit for
2 weeks 1 month! Initially, I was intending to volunteer for just 2 weeks duration. School resumed on the 2nd week of my stay and I love the friendly rural small town, hence I extended my visa for another month of stay. Uttaradit is located at North Thailand and there’s no public transportation to get around the town. There are no tourists. It’s a pure authentic Thai experience.

My first 14 days of my journey was spent in Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand. Some of you might be expecting an itinerary post but sorry to disappoint you, it is not. I did not go to those must-sees places nor party hard and get drunk every night. Everyone has their own way of travel and here is mine. I had few mistakes during this trip, I learned from it and sharing it here with you. You could laugh at my stupidity for making these mistakes too. I will not cover everything since I am posting on Instagram daily, do follow me for daily post 🙂
On 17th April, I arrived at Don Muang Airport, collected my bags and exited the arrival hall. Once I stepped out, I made the first mistake that cost me a lot of money. I paid 850 baht for a “Camry” taxi because I did not know about metered taxi or bus. Okay, I was dumb lol. Not only that, I bought a SIM card with 7 days package (299 baht) from the airport too, please don’t buy it from the airport because it is way cheaper to just get the SIM card and top up from 7-elevan if you are intending to stay for long.
