Traveling to Thailand!

When traveling abroad, don't forget to check about necessary vaccinations! I didn't think of it until yesterday!

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) website has a page with all the information about recommended vaccines when traveling to Thailand. Apparently, regular clinics can't administer some of the vaccines so you have to contact a travel medicine clinic. There is a list of travel medicine clinics in Minnesota located on the Minnesota Department of Health website. Whew!

Here's all of us with Achi the last time she visited the States in March 2009! Now we're going to visit her in Thailand!

What else could we be forgetting? We have our passports and plane tickets. Achi's mom, Sukanya, is arranging our accommodations and where we'll go and what we'll see (which is awesome)! What else? Here are some of the things Sukanya included in our tentative itinerary with links to the things I could find!

- visit Kamphaengsaen campus (where Achi goes to school). Here's Achi and Me:

- go to Phetchaburi (I think this is the place Achi talked about the 'wild monkeys!').
- Khao Wang Palace on the moutain (Phra Nakhon Khiri historic park is located on top of the
hill known locally as Khao Wang), give fruit to the monkeys
- Maleukataiyawan palace near the beach (perhaps she means Maruekkhathayawan palace?)

-stay at Cha-am or Hua Hin beach

- visit Tha- Yang, Sarewat's home town (Achi's Dad)

- Amphawa market & home stay at Samut songkhram (This website's description says: see and touch the Thai ways by living in a Thai style house in a peaceful rural atmosphere.) Cool!

- floating market at Dam noen saduak, Ratchaburi

- Golden Pagoda & Sanam chan Palace, Nakhon pathom

- Bang Pa- In Palace & Ayutthaya - Elephant show

- Bung Cha-Wag Park
- Zoo, Vegetable garden, Aquarium

- Bird park Chai Nat

- Kamphaeng Phet

- go to Chiang Mai
- visit Temple, Hot water Spring, Handicraf (sounds like there is a pretty popular night bazaar that she may be referring to?)
- visit Lampang, Phitsanulok

- Grand Palace, JJ market in Bangkok
