In my short life span of 20 years I have visited quite a few countries now.I love traveling like most people and I share this common interest with my parents who equally love roaming the world for fun.Whenever it’s my vacation or there is period of long holidays,the family flies off to some beautiful place for some fun.Among the places I’ve been so far some are Malaysia,India,London,Dubai and few others but I must say Thailand is my personal favorite.There’s just so much to it that made me write a complete blog about it so here it goes.
I’ve been to Thailand twice now and I had the time of my life both times! We’ve been to Bangkok and Pattaya city.So let me start with Bangkok.This is the capital of Thailand and I would say the busiest and most modern city of the country.As soon as you land at the airport there called the Suvarnabhumi airport you will get captivated by the marvellous airport itself.When we got out on the road to the hotel it was amazing specially at nighttime.The occupied roads with modified shiny cars and dazzling street lights make you feel instantly that you came to this modern city with lots to explore.On the way you get to see the tall buildings and countless shopping malls.The idea of getting to shop at so many places already got me excited and yes I am a shopaholic though its quite strange for a guy.Anyways my dad always took the liberty in booking the best hotels so that our entire trip is relaxing and luxurious.We stayed at Centre point the first time and next trip at the Ambassador.Both were good hotels with breath taking view of the city and also nice beds! However one thing that happens every trip is no matter how good the hotel is we hardly get to spend time in it since we are always in such a rush! Sigh.Moving on,the best part I love about Thailand is their food! I am such a crazy foodie and when it comes to Thai food I can never control my diet.So many varieties with countless forms of delicious spicesThai street food is one of a kind to be honest.If you want the real raw Thai taste then hit the streets instead of the expensive restaurants.I can eat those street Thai food 3 times a day for the rest of my life and still not get tired of it because overtime I have them it always tastes so different and good!The prices are also pretty reasonable.Then for touring the city there are ‘tuktuks’ besides the regular yellow taxis.These tuktuks are 3 wheelers that run on motor.It’s a great experience riding one of those and better for viewing the city.Bangkok is mainly the food and shopping that makes it every girl’s and guy’s paradise.For me it’s heaven since I love both! Besides that there is the floating market or you can go for a cruise in a nice ship that takes you round the city.
Pattaya is more laid back.It is 1.5 hours drive from Bangkok.The city boasts for it’s spectacular sea beaches and coral islands.If you want to spend a quality time by simply relaxing and enjoying the sea view then this is the place to be.There are lots of other attractions like loads of beach activities including paragliding and much more!The food here is also really great with more specialities in seafood.I had the best sea food in Pattaya!You can also get lots of accessories and jewelry here.My mom got a bunch of them from here.
All in all Thailand was the complete package every time we went there and I was always dying to go back once more when we returned.Great food,huge shopping centers and beautiful places to visit.The people there are also really friendly and the whole ambiance there makes you feel so special.The reason I love this country more is because they were not so big long ago.They were immensely underdeveloped but this country has grown so far that now it is one of the top tourism places currently.Most of all though the city has become so much modern you still get to see a lot of traditional touches in the country with many magnificent temples and historic sites so basically Thailand is a combination of both that makes it even better.So if you are confused where to head for your next break,now you know where you can have the best vacation of your life!
