Sawadee Ka! I can finally say that I have been to Thailand! I was beyond excited to visit Thailand and plus Blackpink's Lisa is from there. Yes, I'm a BLINK. Are you? I went to Singapore first, then Malaysia, and now Thailand as my final trip destination for this Asia vacation with my family. It was my first time in all three countries and I'll definitely be back in Thailand for sure. There were still so much to explore and 5 days are not enough. We were in Thailand the longest compared to Singapore and Malaysia, but I would've stayed for another week if I could.
We arrived in Thailand early in the morning, which I was happy about. It gave us more time to explore Thailand after dropping off our luggage at the hotel. We took the pink taxi over to Chinatown to walk around for a little bit before heading over to Megabangna Shopping Centre to get some food and do some shopping. The next was the start of the exciting jam-packed activities on this Thailand tour.
The first day, we went to explore the beautiful Grand Palace. We saw some of their soldiers and guards walking around, so that was pretty cool. For the weather of the three countries we went on this trip, I would say Thailand was the hottest. Our tour guide mentioned that their weather was either hot, hotter, and hottest. After that, we went on a boat ride and toured around the area for the rest of the day.
The second day, we were on our way to Pattaya City for a few days. It was definitely really fun. It was fun water day for us. I was the first to raise my hand to want to go parasailing in our tour group. Lots of people of all ages (except really young kids and babies of course) were in line to go parasailing. The line was surprisingly pretty fast. I thought it would take a long time before my turn, but I didn't have to wait too long. You had the option to get your feet/little bit of your body into the ocean water or you can choose not to do that if you do not want to get wet. I ended up choosing to get my feet/body dipped into the water. I do admit that I was scared at that part because it feels like you're slowly going into the ocean and what if the boat driver doesn't speed up the boat early or fast enough before you go deeper into the ocean water. Other than that, it was such a fun experience. I highly suggest everyone to try that once in their life. Once we were done with parasailing, we spent a few hours walking around the beach before we go eat lunch. Fast forward several hours, we head back to the hotel to shower quickly and change. The day is not over as we made our way to the Pattaya City Floating Market. There were tons of souvenir shops and can bargain with the store workers. I bought some elephant magnets for myself and my friends as souvenirs to take back home.
For the other days, we got to see and touch the cute elephants. The elephant is Thailand's country animal mascot. At night time, we had hot pot for dinner and enjoyed an interesting ladyboy show upstairs the restaurant after we ate. The next day, we went to a fruit farm and ate a lot of different fruits before going to Asiatique The Waterfront. It is more like an outdoor shopping mall that is a great place to find unique things to buy and variety of restaurants to choose from to eat at. It even has a Ferris wheel! I know this place was featured in both CLC and GIDLE's YouTube videos when they went to Thailand for leisure and work. And before you know it, the trip was almost over. I always get the feeling of being happy but sad at the same time. I want to go back home to see my dog again, but I also do not want this to end either.
The last remaining day was super fun. I did not want this to end but at least it was a great way to end the trip. For lunch, we went to Baiyoke Sky Tower Restaurant in Bangkok that has a 360 degree view on the 84th floor. It was a buffet style with a large variety of food selection. After finishing with lunch, I quickly went up to the roof deck with my brother to enjoy the view of different sides of Bangkok from the 84th floor. It was super high up and windy since it was a rainy day. All the other days were sunny until the last day. The view was still amazing though! I definitely would come back again if I went back to Bangkok again one day. To end the trip, we went to the first 3D Art Museum in Bangkok, Art in Paradise, that is great for people of all ages.
There is still so much of Thailand to explore. I do want to go visit Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai next time. If I could live or work in Thailand for several months, I totally would.
