As travellers, we all want to get off the beaten path and visit places untouched by mass tourism. We want to find that just waiting to be discovered new destination right out of National Geographic. Nicaragua is often compared to Costa Rica years ago before the developers moved in and brought Western infrastructure and facilities.

Jen is crazy passionate about two things, seeing the world and how to save our planet. She started travelling when she was less than a year old, and got hooked on jet setting ever since! She has lived in 4 different countries including Canada, India, U.S.A (Hawaii) and South Korea. The thing that she loves so much about travelling is learning from other people by seeing and experiencing how they live. About the age of 11, she picked up a book called ‘Oceans in Peril’ It changed the way she looked at the world forever. She realized how much we mistreated not only our oceans, but our planet as well. Just because we didn’t live in the ocean or in the forest, didn’t make it right for us to pollute, pillage and destroy it. It was a horrible feeling, soon she realized if things kept going this way, we won’t have a home to live in for much longer. The beautiful sights and sounds we take for granted at home and when we travel will not be around for future generations to come.
She started educating her friends and classmates through fun plays, showing everyone that being more sustainable in our everyday lives didn’t have to be super difficult or expensive. It starts with the willingness to try and to make small little change which later become habits. Learn how you can change the way you travel on her blog (link at the top of the article) or follow her adventures on Facebook and Pinterest
Chiang Rai, in Thailand’s northernmost province, sits firmly on the South East Asia Backpacker trail, and is often a travelers last stop in Thailand before crossing in Laos. However, a quick search of things to do in the area leaves many feeling underwhelmed. Most travelers have heard about the White Temple, but with google throwing up only a few more temples as options for Things To Do, it doesn’t inspire many people to stick around longer than the included 2 hour stop on the way to the border. This guide is dedicated to showing you that there is so much more to Chiang Rai than just the ‘White Temple’ and to convince you to give it a little more time on your tour of Thailand. Keep reading to find out all about the top things to do in Chiang Rai – and as you’ll be staying a little longer – where to eat and where to stay! (Chiang Rai Things To Do)
