The best bit about traveling is not just the stunning beaches, parties or new friends, but being able to engage with the locals and discover why Thailand is called the Land of Smiles.
Leo decided to help! Leo has created Backpackpedia (see what they did there!)
Here is the guide to partying like the locals that will help you fit in with Thai life from Day 1.
We’ve already brought you a way to meet the locals by using the fun word ‘Chaiyo’ so next on the list is…
Scooters are an easy way of getting around but are not a good idea if you are planning to drink. Try getting around the island like the locals do on a ‘Rod Song Taew’.
They are cheap, easy to use and of those ‘only in Thailand’ experiences.
Scooters are great but factor in the risk and they should not be mixed with alcohol
Rod Song Taew are the backpackers main method of transport across the island
Chai Yo - cheers
