Welcome to WhyGo Thailand, a part of the BootsnAll Travel Network.Â Â Hosted by Â Thailand expert Catherine Bodry, Â WhyGo Thailand has everything you need to plan your trip to Thailand, including how to get there, how to get around, where to stay, and what to do. It’s your one-stop Thailand travel guide!
Catherine is a wandering soul who has lived in France, Ireland, and China. A Lonely Planet author, she has co-authored guidebooks to Thailand, Alaska, and Canada, and supports her insatiable wanderlust through travel writing.
Catherine has made repeated trips to Thailand since 2004, when she first visited the country on a round-the-world tour. Though she tends to fall in love with wherever she happens to be at the moment, her favorite spots to visit include Trat, Ko Chang, and Ko Mak. Never satisfied with hanging in a hammock for more than a couple of days, Catherine prefers hiking and running as means of exploration. She’s slowly getting used to driving a motorbike in less-crowded areas, and likes to pick up an inflatable animal for bobbing around in the ocean with.
Thai curries are one of Catherine’s great passions in life, and she still hasn’t settled on her favorite: green? red? Massamam? She loves exploring Thailand’s night markets to sample new treats, though she almost always settles on a bowl of curry in the end – followed by mangoes and sticky rice in coconut milk, of course.
She’ll be building this site to include everything you’ll ever want to know about Thailand, but if there’s something you can’t find be sure to ask her!
