There are many reasons for why we all travel. It might be to chase the summer sun, to experience something completely novel or to temporarily forget the pressures from work and recharge. Mr LB from Brunch Addict had a strong urge to leave Melbourne and experience life at a different pace. Within a week of leave being confirmed, flights and a tour with Geckos Adventures was booked.
This travel series in photos shows a different experience to what some might typically think of Thailand on the Tales of Old Saim tour by Geckos Adventure.
Thailand is more than just experiencing Bangkok and visiting the Phi Phi islands. There is plenty of culture, history and experiences located north of Bangkok. One such example is the town Kanchanaburi, an hour west of Bangkok. Whilst only being a small town the world war two history is deeply ingrained. From appreciating the engineer feat of building the bridge of the river kwai to walking through the manmade railroads of Hellfire Passing during Japanese occupation. The deep ties to not only Australian history, but the extreme operations of the labour camps that was world war two is deeply felt and appreciated.
