5 Ways to Travel Responsibly in Thailand

How can I be more responsible on the go? It’s a question that has a unique set of answers depending on where you are traveling. Each country is confronted with social, economic and environmental problems, which ultimately are the answer. After living and traveling throughout Thailand for 5 years, I have realized some issues related to this country. Here are 5 easy and reliable travel tips for Thailand.

Can not speak with a plastic bag.

If you have been to Thailand, you will know about the love of plastic bags. Everything seems to come in plastic bags. Sometimes you get a bag in a bag. It is surprising when you get a bottle of Coca-Cola that is poured into a plastic bag with a little ice to give the seller a refund.

It’s easy to break the habit. Just say no plastic bag. You may have been staring at the confused few questions as to why you do not need a purse. In some cases, it does not even indicate that you still have a plastic bag. Take it and deny you even a plastic bag hand is not vulgar.

One important line that you can learn in Thai, which makes a huge difference is “mai sai tung krub”. “No Thanks Bag”

Clean the dog as you go.

Where are these billions of plastic bags going to end? In the sea and on the beach The amount of junk that ended up in a beautiful remote beach in Thailand did not surprise me. In fact, the more distant you are, the more you will get more waste.

Making a difference is really easy. Just hold the garbage bag roll in your backpack. If you come to a desolate beach, take only one hour to clean and you will make a huge difference. More often than not, you get other people involved in helping you.

Not only will you feel good about helping to solve environmental problems. But you will have beautiful beaches for yourself.

Pay the entrance fee to the national park.

Many travelers complained about the price split in the National Park of Thailand. There is a price for locals and a separate price for foreigners, which is generally ten times the local.

Consider for minutes that this money is actually spent for conservation. All entrance fees will be included with the National Park entrance pass. The staff is responsible for fundraising, so it is not a cash for whiskey bottles later in the afternoon. The Thai government has a real conservation effort on the national park, with these funds, such as reforestation and illegal removal of buildings.

Want to support conservation in Thailand? Pay a fee to enter your national park. Be sure to check out a few great national public investigations in one of Thailand’s biggest travel guides, The Lost Passport.

Buy at MA & PA

7/11 Convenience Store owned and operated by CP Group. In recent times, it has been felt that 7/11 has attracted attention throughout Bangkok and other parts of Thailand.

why? Everybody buys it because the baht is less.

7/11 stores have effectively pushed a large number of domestic-owned stores out of business. Small shops with families work for generations, and usually 60 or older seniors in Bangkok. We usually call the Ma & Pa store.

When you spend just a few dollars on the dollar, you can get them to work and work hard.

Avoid animal tourism.

Animal tourism is of interest in Thailand and Southeast Asian countries. In recent times, travelers have become increasingly aware of the cruelty associated with the animal tourism industry.

The elephants were “spoiled” over the years, until they heard their masters. The tigers are drugged so they can be safely patted by the crowd of tourists. The monkeys are kept in small cages, chained to the ground, and have a sword to do tricks for the crowd.

If you want to see animals in Thailand, go to the national park where you will see natural habitats (from a distance) or visit the sacred places where animals are helped by the abuse in the tourism industry.

Visit JAPAN FOR THE FIRST TIME – Everything you need to know

Before going to Japan for the first time, I would admit that I had a tunnel vision that this experience would be about. I have a picture of sushi train and a peace sign with epic mountains and busy city. While this is true, Japan is so. (So ​​much) more than that. Of course, you can watch TV to traditional Japanese shows and make sure you can eat sushi almost every time. (Although the sushi train is not really Japanese), but the Japanese experience. Culture, History and Traditions

Now you go to Japan for the first time. Here is a complete guide for everything you need to know in advance. From the manners in the basket through the robot toilet, here is your complete guide to ensure a smooth and fun journey to Japan!

Tokyo | Everything you need to know

Visit Japan for the first time.
Japan is not expensive.
First, let me start by saying that Japan is nowhere near as expensive as ever, especially in the current weakening of the yen and US dollar. Larger cities such as Tokyo are still expensive. But when it comes to here, it is possible to eat cheap food as well as take advantage of many free activities. (Starts from Shibuya Park and Meiji Shrine. To name a few)

Traveling by train is the greatest.
Before traveling to Japan, I did not have a clue to travel to Tokyo. After conducting my own online research too, I decided to book tours for my father and me to enjoy the country as a whole, making it an easy way to see Japan’s highlights while getting clever explanations. About culture, history and traditions, even if you want to travel one way, the best way to explore the country is by train. (In most cases, Japan has a famous high-speed train which travels at 320 km / h!). Make less trips, so you have more time to enjoy each destination.

Ladies train only
When riding the subway, be sure to always be aware of the signs that might be right for you. (Do not worry, they are almost translated into English for foreigners.) “Ladies only” bus runs on some trains and some routes. But what you have to do is look for signs when boarding. To give some indication, we see these cars only twice more than 11 days of travel.

No trash
After collecting garbage on the first day in Japan, I realized that the trash was not here. As a lazy person, I find myself always on the lookout for trash, and not much is enough to find a restaurant outside our dining room and hotel room. The reason being described to me is a local custom that Japanese people find it rude to eat on the go, so they are not encouraged to do so by having bins available in public. So do not forget to use your backpack or backpack with you each day to make sure you have a place to put the trash (and not hungry!).

Chopsticks in Japan

Etiquette in chopsticks
One of the best things I have learned in this trip is to practice properly when eating chopsticks. Although I know how to use chopsticks after years of visiting Hong Kong. But I never realized that using chopsticks was a taboo.

Here are some things that should not be done: Do not put your chopsticks up in a bowl of rice, do not stab your food with chopsticks, do not pass the food between two sets of chopsticks, and do not use two pairs of chopsticks mismatch. This is considered a taboo.

No need to tip or expect.
When in a restaurant, especially be sure to refrain from tipping as this is not customary and will actually insult or confuse your waiter. Do not be surprised if you find yourself chasing halfway through the waiter trying to change your loose change – that’s just how unusual it is for someone to tip at the restaurant!

Shoes off
After spending a few days in Japan, you should use your shoes and take off your shoes. In many religious houses, homes and historic castles, removing shoes is essential before you enter. However, something should be noted. Make sure you wear socks or at least two socks that are useful to use because bare feet are found insulting. Also make sure to step out of the entrance to the house or building entrance without letting the sock touch the floor dirty, since you are considered quite rude for wearing dirty socks.

Android toilet
One thing I will never forget about Japan is the Toto bathroom. In the hotel room and restaurant, you can expect all kinds of gadgets to jump onto your bathroom board for a lifetime trip. But really!) The heated seats are normal as well as automatic cleanup … but there are a range of buttons to play along with the gauge.

48 HOURS IN HONG KONG

After a European whirlwind tour and a baking week in Paris, I returned to Australia through Hong Kong, one of the most logical destinations for traveling from Australia to Europe. (Along with Singapore)

With just 48 hours in the city and my jet plane weighing down, I was surprised to see that I could fit in for such a brief visit! If you find yourself in Hong Kong for a short time, this is the perfect schedule for pairing. (There are some options depending on how many times you visit!)

Hong Kong Guide | The World of Fire
Check in: Hong Kong Island VS Kowloon
There are two main choices when you arrive in Hong Kong: stay “on the island” or stay in Kowloon. (There is a huge area on the other side of the syrup to the mainland of China.) To be honest with you, I love both and each one for different reasons.

Hong Kong Island is centrally located and within walking distance of major tourist attractions. Most of the islands are more financially feasible and most Hong Kong businesses operate outside the central region. On the other hand, you have Kowloon that offers a more authentic stay, just minutes to the local market and right. “In the thick of it”

On this trip, I checked in at the new Kerry Hotel, which is located away from the hustle and bustle with all the bay views. The other hotels I enjoyed were the Landmark Mandarin Oriental (Dreams of fashion bloggers. ) Four Seasons Hotel (One of the best views of Kowloon from the island) The Ritz Carlton (one of the tallest hotels in the world – you literally woke me up in the clouds) and a 3-4 star hotel on Nathan Road. Why The day before the block (All this great. But no one remembered it.)

Get your bearings: Take the Peak Tram!
You can not go to Hong Kong and do not go to the top of the Victoria Mountains, which is a prominent mountain overlooking Hong Kong Island, and offers uninterrupted views of Kowloon Bay. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the mountain mansions as you travel up the peak, where home prices call for millions. (Some of the most expensive real estate in the whole world!)

Quirky Eats in Hong Kong | World Travel Guide of Wanderlust Hong Kong | World of Wanderlust Quirky Eats in Hong Kong |
Take lunch at Cat Street.
Some of the city’s expatriates are Cat Road, which still retains its authenticity, offering local handicrafts, souvenirs, souvenirs and many delicious food to sink. Food is rarely like in the country because the neighborhood is still retained due to the expatriate population and the logical feeling to offer more western food in the area. (But most of the food is tender and original. Their way)

Take the Star Ferry to Kowloon.
No matter how many times I visit Hong Kong and will continue to visit in the future, I will never forget the view and tranquility when cruising from the island to Kowloon with a reasonable price of less than 1 night.

Walk along the Kowloon Pier.
Avenue of Stars is taste-tasteless and lively. It still provides one of the best views of the city skyline! I would recommend arriving in time for sunset and watching the city evolve from day to night. Take a picnic if needed and watch the light show open every evening at 8pm.

Shopping in Hong Kong |
Night Market in Mong Kok
After the tranquility and tranquility of the harbor, turn things into gear and travel along Mong Kok, home of Hong Kong’s famous night market. Over the years, I have been admired by the product. (Brand books, phone cases, and cheap souvenirs. But the experience itself is still equally fun.

The most famous night markets are Temple Street Night Market and Ladies Market. During the day, you will find Fa Yuen Street, fish market and flower market for little difference.

Day 2: Go to remote island
Hong Kong experience is about escaping, as well as visiting the city itself, if only for a day or an afternoon! Hong Kong’s beauty is outlandish with hiking, beach and natural beauty to discover. If your first trip to Hong Kong, you should take Lantau Island as your starting point, because here you will see the famous bronze Buddha and experience the ancient culture and traditions of Hong Kong.

If you have visited Lantau, then the options are endless! Lamma is another great day for a more relaxed escape from the city and the beautiful beaches, so you can forget about the hustle and bustle of anytime.

Have dinner at Ho Lee Fook.
On this last trip I met a favorite dinner place in the Central region, thanks to fellow Morgan living in Hong Kong in the past year and have discovered the best.
