#28 – Backpacking Thailand and Bali

This podcast is about two dudes on a backpacking adventure in Thailand and Bali, Indonesia.

Mandeville is a good friend based in the US. In this episode we talk about our backpacking adventures in South East Asia. The trip was made back in 2017 (before the world went nuts) and we had a fantastic experience.

The adventure starts in Bangkok, where we take a luxurious night train to Chang Mai. We leave Chang Mai with an old beat up train all the way to Champhon where we take a boat to Koh Phangan. From there, we hit up incredible Khao Sok and eventually Krabi. The last stretch of the adventure is spent on Bali.

A good insight into what you can expect on a backpacking adventure in South East Asia.
