If you are an animal lover like I am then Thailand could be your idea of a perfect holiday. On my travels I have met some cute cats, happy-go-lucky dogs and some very cheeky monkeys!
Animals are everywhere in Thailand, many of them roam freely without a care in the world, especially the dogs! Just this weekend I was with the Starfish team in Sangkhlaburi doing some building and there was 1, 2, 4, 9… I lost count of how many dogs there were. I even met a very cute, floppy-eared beagle puppy while walking over the famous wooden bridge!
Here are some of my favourite Instagram shots of the furry friends I’ve met in Thailand so far…
Sleeping shrine cat. Because nothing says ‘I’m at peace with myself’ like sleeping at 1pm in the afternoon.
Yin-Yang hugging cats. Total cuteness overload.
My foot, the monkey seat. This cheeky monkey wanted somewhere to sit and well, I wasn’t going anywhere anyway.
“It’s hot out there.” 7 Elevens are all over Thailand, they sell all the usual stuff that convenience stores do. One day I patted a dog on the head outside of one and he followed me inside which gave everyone a good laugh.
Nothing compares to you. My favourite animal related adventure in Thailand has to be meeting, feeding and playing with elephants – there’s really nothing else quite like it!
Getting here –
If you want to come to Thailand to be as calm as a cat, as happy as a dog, and as carefree as monkey then check out the various volunteer oppurtunities that Starfish offers. If you are looking for an unforgettable elephant experience then be sure check out their elephant volunteer projects.
