We started doing a city by city bucket list since our trip to Bali, but we were never organized enough to put it all down on paper (or in this case, on the internet) and didn’t really follow through to see what got ticked off.
Every time we go to a new place, city or country, we will separately write down our bucket list for that place and put it all together. Not only does it get us excited for our trip, it really helps us to plan and organize where to stay, and when we should go where. Even if you’re not much of a planner when you travel, try getting a rough bucket list down and you’ll see immediately how it helps to plan out your trip.
It’s a dynamic list so we’ll be crossing things off we go. And anything in yellow-gold is linked to a post we wrote about the place, so click through and get the details!
Feel free to use this as your Bangkok Bucket List template as well on your blog, social media, Pinterest, whatever! We would just ask for the credit mention and a tag/shout.
