Travelogues - Discover Thailand with travel blogger Richard Barrow
I am Richard Barrow and I am a UK citizen who has lived here in Thailand for 23 years. I' ve been traveling in Thailand since 1998. This website contains cards, pictures and memos from all my last travels through Thailand. They can also join me on Twitter and Facebook and be there during every trip.
Travelling is one of my pastimes. A lot more travelogues and charts will follow as I move through my archive. Also you can see my newspapers with my own blogs and the archive of newspapers. A lot of excursion suggestions. Pictures from these journeys are used in the Thailand tourist guide.
It is an ongoing effort to create a free guide to explore Thailand. You can also check Thai Traveller Blogs for information on travelling and forthcoming Thai festival and event dates. There is also a website named My Thailand Photos which contains many of my traveling photos.
To get an idea for a Bangkok excursion or accommodation, please see another of my current activities named "Bangkok Daytrips". Have a look at my "Thailand from above" to see my drones-pictures.
