The Different Charm of Dongba Garden

The Different Charm of Dongba Garden

March 2, 2011 is destined to be an unusual day. This is the last day of our Thai experience tour, and it is also an unforgettable day for 46 couples attending Thai weddings.

Dongba Garden is located in the suburb of Pattaya and covers a wide area. The garden is the best place to display Thailand’s national culture with small bridges, flowing water, pavilions, birds and flowers, and picturesque scenery.

The “Thai Group Wedding” jointly organized by Thailand’s National Tourism Administration and China Photography Association was held in this place.

We were also invited to attend this grand ceremony. Of course, we have to be very formal in dress. (This is Ha Mei dressed up to attend. I’m really afraid these high heels will twist her feet.)

The 46 couples from all over the country were all beaming and dressed in Thai wedding costumes. The groom is natural and unrestrained and handsome, the bride is graceful and graceful, with pearls around her head and lotus steps around her feet. A few of us took cameras to shoot in the crowd. We could shoot as we wanted. We had the demeanor of a reporter and were really addicted to reporters.

The wedding procedure is very cumbersome but quite grand. Under the guidance of the beautiful hostess, 46 couples worshipped the land and tasted cakes. Nine eminent monks came, and the newcomer listened to the monks singing their blessings, folding his hands and making a silent wish. The harmony of eminent monks singing sutras is very beautiful. Although I didn’t understand them singing some what, I could feel peace and calm in the sutras. The venerable monk sprinkled holy water to bless the people. His kind face and kind smile infected everyone attending the wedding.

Thailand’s Ministry of Tourism and Sports Changchun Peng also came to the wedding.

Minister Chunpeng said that more than 1.12 million Chinese tourists came to Thailand last year and they hoped to attract 1.5 million Chinese tourists to Thailand this year. He wished the Thai and Chinese people a long history of friendship and also wished the new people “a good union for a hundred years” in Chinese. His speech won warm applause from the audience. Samson, deputy director of Thailand’s National Tourism Administration, told reporters that Thailand has rich tourism resources, various hotels and a variety of delicacies, which will attract more Chinese newcomers to Thailand for weddings and honeymoons. This collective wedding is the beginning of Thailand’s development of China’s wedding tourism market. In the future, they will also hold weddings in popular tourist destinations such as Phuket, Sumi Island and Chiang Mai, and may even hold weddings in local villages.

The distinguished guests put wreaths on the new people, dotted their foreheads, put double happiness yarn knots on their heads, and sprinkled water to bless them. The wreath of the new couple is gorgeous and luxurious, and the smile of the new couple is happy and intoxicating. At this moment, I was tempted. I want to hold my son’s wedding in Dongba Garden. I want all lovers in the world to enjoy this happiness and blessing.

The grand and peaceful wedding was over, and the new people took the blessings of the Thai people to a new life. In the far back, Dongba Garden is flowing with faint lingering charm and faint fragrance. I also send my best wishes to them from the bottom of my heart: remember this wonderful moment and cherish the happiness in my hands!

The week-long experience tour brought me into contact with Thailand from all angles, and every angle brought me surprises. I don’t know whether Thailand should be compared to a charming girl, a charming bride, or a charming woman or a charming queen. Thailand is like a beautiful and amorous “witch”, full of charming spirits and strong temptations at all ages. This group of travel notes is far from describing Thailand’s amorous feelings, elegant demeanour, scenery, charm and charm, so I have the character “different”. I only hope that these books can lift the mysterious veil of Thailand, reveal a corner of absolute beauty, and let more people know that Thailand likes Thailand.

Play/Travel/Fun/Enjoy (Original)

A tourist goes out with his bag on his back and goes out for a walk, or takes a train, a plane or a self-driving. This kind of behavior is called what? Play, travel, plan or travel?

Is there any difference between the three? If you think about it carefully, there are some differences.

Tired of work, I made an appointment with several colleagues and friends to discuss which place nearby was fun and which scenic spot I had not been to. Then I drove on the bus and went there for a stroll. Everyone chatted happily while walking. When they arrived at noon, they had a picnic, or found a local restaurant to eat and enjoy the right and happiness to eat. After that, I took another photo. This is called-play.

Newspaper a tour group, take the whole family and enjoy the experience of “getting on the bus to sleep and getting off the bus to urinate”. The famous tourist attractions have arrived. Wow! There are many tourists who rub their shoulders and heel. Follow the tour guide into the scenic spot, look in all directions, listen to the tour guide Yunshan fog cover to speak, I will see wherever the tour guide lets me see, the tour guide said what I will listen to what, the tour guide lets me go but dare not stop, then put a V or pose in the scenery finger to let relatives take photos, go to the tourist product stall to buy souvenir souvenirs, sit on the cable car and go straight to the peak. Anyway, I don’t lack money. This is called traveling.

There is also a kind of travel called travel: travel, first of all, pay attention to the body is not moving, the heart is far away. The choice of travel destination is even based on a dream, a novel, a story in my youth, with a little fantasy color, isn’t it? Before you go, you should read other people’s travel notes and refer to other people’s photos. In this case, I often can’t get a companion, so I gritted my teeth, picked up my luggage and walked out of the house. I came to the local youth hostel to meet new friends. Everyone went to an original ecological scenic spot together. In a foreign land, travelers often have more interest in local customs and human feelings than in the scenery. They talk to landlords, stroll through farmers’ markets or bazaars in the streets, chat with local villagers, stop, stare, stare blankly at attractive places in the scenic spot, or simply stop, stay and stroll around casually and unhurriedly. This kind of travel requires a pair of iron feet, a stomach that can withstand hunger, and a heart that can withstand loneliness. The harvest is not only travel-stained, but also the true qi of heaven and earth and the unity of heaven and man. Recently, I read the travel notes of Chiang Mai, Thailand, which were “begging all the way” by many friends, and vividly explained the way of “traveling”.

Freedom did the same, based on this experience, wrote the following sour text:

The Story of Yedu

I believe many Duoduo birds have similar travel experiences with Freestyle.

At this point, it suddenly occurred to me that I missed a way of traveling, which is called riding. This is a comfortable and favorite way of traveling. Its charm will be discussed in another article.

One point: The photos are not original and are matched for online search. Thanks to the original author.

Mysterious and Open, Thailand

Language

Language has been hindering me from going abroad for the first ten years. Lazy and stupid, I can’t remember words anyway, so I have to wander around the country. In recent years, friends around me said that Thailand’s islands and temples are very beautiful and they have the idea of going again, that is, they are not free to follow the tour group. I think if you don’t know English, you have to go abroad with a group. Do you have to go abroad with friends who can speak English? Even if I learn English, do I want to go to Germany, France and Spain? I don’t believe this evil. I made up my mind not to learn any language and took Thailand as my first stop to the world.

So far, I have only learned five English words: Hi, OK, NO, 3Q, in vain. Of course, I must do a good job in the attack class before going out. I will go to the place names, scenic spots, hostels, stations, meals, supermarkets, and other common words, maps printed out and marked in Chinese and English. Thailand, where the toilet is located, said that they did not understand WC. I wrote Thai on a small note? (found online), put it in your pocket and take it out at any time. Every time you want to go to the toilet, you show it to Thais and they will point it out to me immediately. In foreign countries, I regard myself as deaf and dumb. With my eyes and body movements, I will go to the local supermarket for shopping. It is common for me to bargain with small traders. It is very simple to let the traders lose the price to the calculator, and then I will enter the price that I think is acceptable. When vendors see that there are many tourists like us, they will naturally make me understand that they are very useful in Thailand’s 24-day trip and language is really not a problem.

Travel

When I went to Thailand, my friend and I were both illiterate in English. What I admire is that she has a strong sense of direction. Take the map and you will know how to get there (there will be free local travel maps in Thai ports, airports, stations, etc.), I can’t tell the difference between the southeast and the northwest. After each city, she rented a motorcycle first, It is easy to find a car rental agency in Thailand, The price is 150-250 baht/24 hours, About 30-50 yuan is equivalent to the people, and then she hitches me to find accommodation. Sometimes she finds accommodation and picks me up later. It is convenient to go to any scenic spot with a car, which greatly reduces the travel cost and saves a lot of time for hitchhiking and waiting for a bus. More importantly, she can get anywhere to the motorcycle. We often drive directly to the seaside with a motorcycle. When leaving the city, she took me to the station or dock before returning the car. No deposit is required for renting a car, Some need passports, Some only record passport numbers, Some don’t even want a passport deposit, Once in Chiang Mai, we rented a new car that only traveled 80 kilometers. The owner of the car dealership only charged us 400 Thai baht for two days, and the passport was not registered or secured. When we left Chiang Mai, the car dealership had not opened until more than 9 o’clock. My friend had to ask the hotel owner to help return it. My friend said that Thais believed too much in the masses, and if they met a greedy person, they would lose a lot. The train ticket from Bangkok to Chiang Mai is 305 baht, and the taxi from Bangkok’s Kaoshan Road to the railway station is 60 baht, so it is very cheap to travel to Thailand.

Accommodation

As long as you have time, you can find a very cheap and good landscape hotel, and our accommodation cost in Thailand is about 250-500 Thai baht/room. The most expensive is PP Island 500 baht, which is a characteristic Mao Cao bamboo shed. Chiang Mai is the cheapest and warmest 250 baht. Paan Island is the best 400 baht seascape villa. Opening the door is the sea, beach, swimming pool, bar and outdoor massage hall. Most of them are villas, only hotels in Bangkok and Jiami, and the overall feeling is good.

Eat

Driving the car into the village and experiencing the life of the local people is the most interesting and fruitful thing I think. I brought some small gifts to the local people to close the distance with the local people. The simple local people asked me to share the cakes they made. Of course, it is not the kind of pleasing food, but what I want is this taste. What I remember most is that in Guidao, the boss invited me to try her craft with her own breakfast every morning. Thais eat very little, and what they bring is only enough to plug my teeth. When I was sitting on the balcony at night, I would be invited to taste the coffee she cooked. I motioned with my hand that I could not sleep after drinking it. I didn’t expect her to pour another glass of milk and bring it. In Thailand, if we don’t pick a bowl of rice flour 20 baht and a bowl of fried rice 40 baht, we usually eat casually in the morning and Chinese food, and when we calm down at night, we will go to the bar to make up for it. We spent the least dinner + 160 baht of fruit juice, and the most expensive dinner was 860 baht on PP Island. We didn’t enter the bar but winked at the foreigners at the door and went back to rest for a while. Everything started from economy and didn’t dare to let go.

I met a couple who could speak Chinese in Chiang Mai. American couples working in Yunnan, China, The wife came to Chiang Mai to have children, I asked why I was not born in China. The medical conditions in China are better than those in Chiang Mai. Husband and wife said that Chinese doctors all speak Chinese and communication is difficult. Moreover, it costs at least several thousand yuan to have children. The staff in Chiang Mai Hospital can speak English. The cost of having children is low. The money saved can live in Chiang Mai for several months, so they decided to have children in Chiang Mai. They asked how long we had been here. How long are you going to stay? I said I’ve been in Thailand for 22 days, From south to north, I went to Bangkok, Guidao, Paan Island, Sumi Island, Surat Thani, Jiami, PP and Chiang Mai. I stayed in each place for two or three days. When he went to Chiang Rai, the next city tomorrow, his head shook like a wave drum. After shaking for a long time, he changed his tone and said, Why do you rush into the scenic spots with your camera and shoot them again like a war, and you can run so many places in 22 days? You are not traveling, traveling is wandering slowly. They go to a city for less than half a month and more than half a year. I said that we are picking points. First, we should watch what for fun. What is not fun. We will not take detours next time we come again. Moreover, the Chinese people have precious time. They are in a hurry to go home to earn money and come out when they earn enough. He has been chanting that he does not understand. I said that I grew up in China for decades and did not understand. Do you understand Chinese idioms? The Chinese do it according to idioms. In fact, the main reason is poor. It is enough to go out and have a look. It is satisfied. It is good. It is too selfish and irresponsible to stay outside for several months.

Recommended Highlights: Chiang Mai

Less than Chiang Mai, I don’t know the beauty of Chiang Mai’s mountains and waters. Under my eyes, Chiang Mai Shuanglong Temple shows a natural scenery. The distant mountains are intoxicating. A close look at towering ancient trees and luxuriant forests surround the temple layer by layer. The unique layer of eaves and portraits make the temple solemn and magnificent with rich artistic colors. This has always been a place for them to discuss, sing and entertain. People living here are happy. No matter where you go, you will be attracted by her.

The fascinating night market is the most lively and crowded place in a day. People from all over the world walked through it. All kinds of handicrafts, clothing and food dazzled me. There were not only local products but also products from other Asian countries. A beautiful boss greeted me with a smile from a long distance. He didn’t want to disappoint international friends. We bought two sets of clothes amid bright lights and bargaining.

I believe many people have seen the transvestite performance. Yes, this is a characteristic of Thailand. But when I saw the transvestite holding condoms to promote AIDS prevention in the streets, I felt heartache for these people who have become popular, are hard to make money on the stage, and are fighting against fate.

There are many national holidays in Thailand. For example, December 5 is the birthday of His Majesty King Bhumibol-Adulyadej, and it is also Thailand’s National Day. There are also many religious festivals, such as the Ten Thousand Buddhas Festival, the Three Treasures Festival, the Water Lantern Festival, the Spring Ploughing Festival, the Song Gan Festival, and so on. When I went, I happened to meet hundreds of people around the temple, singing and dancing tirelessly and happily. Because I didn’t know English and Thai, I still didn’t understand it was what Festival.

This has a history of 1,000 years and a population of 65.4 million. There are more than 30 ethnic groups. Thailand is the main ethnic group, accounting for 40% of the total population. 90% of the residents believe in Buddhism and Islam. Thai is the main language in the area, but people can communicate in English in major tourist areas. It is also the focus of famous Buddhist temples in the world.

In Thailand, monasteries have traditionally been divided into three categories, 1. Stone palace buildings (Pimai Stone Palace in Khorat Prefecture, Payilong Stone Palace in Wulinan Prefecture, etc.), 2. Pagoda buildings (seven towers in Chiang Mai and four towers in Nanben Prefecture), 3. Palace buildings (Du Xiguan Hall in Bangkok’s Grand Palace and Buddha Foot Pavilion in Beibiao Prefecture). The temple is characterized by wood carving, stained glass and gold foil ceramic inlay. The multi-storey roof is upturned with two auspices, the towering spire is compact, and there will be short temples nearby, forming a complete group and emitting brilliant artistic light under the sunlight.

Apart from green hills, green waters and temples, Chiang Mai attracts me with price and climate. The consumption here is half that of Bangkok. Until now, I often think of the hostel where I live, with a standard room of 250 Thai baht and a motorcycle rent of 200 baht. Two people eat less than 300 plants a day, and each person spends equivalent to RMB 80 yuan a day. The temperature is about 22 to 25 degrees all the year round, which is very comfortable and worthy of being a tourist attraction.

This is just to introduce my personal experience. Those friends who do not understand the language and have common interests, bravely take this step and leave for Thailand immediately.

Enjoy a brilliant summer of sunshine in Thailand (Bangkok, Phuket, March 2012)

From June 9 to June 16, 2016, I started my first long vacation this year-Thailand (Bangkok + Phuket).

This is my first time abroad. I am very excited and looking forward to it.

This trip is a three-person trip between my cousin and my sister-in-law (it seems a bit like a light bulb, ha ha, who let my little bitch have no time). Originally, another colleague was traveling with her, but she couldn’t get away before she left, so she had to give up on the trip.

We chose the flight of AirAsia. As early as March, we had already booked the air tickets and hotels on AirAsia’s official website. The bundles were very cheap, including 4 air tickets from Guangzhou to Bangkok, Bangkok to Phuket, Phuket to Bangkok, Bangkok to Guangzhou, 6 nights in Bangkok, 3 nights in Phuket, and 1800 for one person. (Why do you want to book 6 nights instead of 3 nights in Bangkok? No way, AirAsia’s bundled sales, but it is still very cheap, it doesn’t matter.)

This tour is as follows:

D1: Guangzhou will fly to Bangkok on June 10. In the afternoon, I will visit the Chaduzha Weekend Market and visit the Chao Phraya River at night (dinner on board)

D2: Visit the Grand Palace and Sleeping Buddha Temple during the day on June 11, and fly to Phuket from Bangkok at 9: 45 p.m.

D3: On June 12, Emperor Island took a one-day tour during the day and watched the transvestite performance at night.

D4: June 13: One-day tour of PP Island during the day and Magic Paradise at night.

D5: On June 14, I strolled around Patong Beach during the day, enjoyed Thai massage in Let’s Relax in the afternoon, then went shopping (around Big C) and flew to Bangkok at 9: 45 p.m. By Phuket.

D6: All day shopping on June 15, mainly in SAIM area, Bangkok will fly back to Guangzhou at 7: 10 p.m.

D7: June 16 Guangzhou loiters or flies back to Nanning

Fee:

Air ticket + accommodation 1800RMB

400B for Grand Palace and 100B for Sleeping Buddha Temple, equivalent to 100 RMB

Night tour of Chao Phraya River 1100B, equivalent to 220RMB

Phuket: PP Island Day Tour + Emperor Island Day Tour + Transvestite Show + Magic Paradise = 5800B (free ride from airport to hotel), equivalent to 1160RMB

Let’s Relax Thai massage, 2 hours 45 minutes 1100B, equivalent to 220RMB

Fare: 40B once, 8 times per person = 320B equivalent to 65RMB

In this way, everyone actually spends 4000-5000RMB.

Camera:

I brought the recently newly started Sony Micro NEX-5N with a pullover of 18-55.

Language:

English! Plus body language, ha ha

As we all know, Thailand gradually entered the rainy season in June. Just one week before we went, it rained for a whole week on Phuket Island. However, our luck is very good. Every day in Thailand is sunny, so the films are very beautiful. Thank God!

The main itinerary is as above, and the details will be explained with the pictures later!

Let’s go! Guangzhou-Bangkok

Because it is cheap, we can only take the red-eye flight at night, AirAsia FD3649, leaving at 23:55! We know that the later the flight is, the easier it will be to delay. We haven’t been able to board the plane until the departure time, and no staff came to explain the reason. We just sat like this. The two foreigners next to us played cricket barefoot. Ha ha. The flight was delayed for a full hour.

It is said that duty-free shops here are cheaper than those in Hong Kong.

If you want to buy something, buy it quickly and will not pass here when you return to Guangzhou.

TIPS:

1. The air conditioner in Guangzhou Airport Terminal is very powerful. It will be very cold after staying for a long time. People who are afraid of the cold had better wear trousers and prepare an extra long-sleeved garment.

2. The duty-free shops at Guangzhou Airport are also very powerful. Those who want to buy things quickly buy them. When they come back to Guangzhou Airport, they will not pass through the duty-free shops.

Finally boarded the plane. This is the passenger cabin of AirAsia. In order to save money, AirAsia’s seats are very narrow and uncomfortable to sit on, but there is no way. Who will make him cheap?

During the whole flight, Central Asian Airlines does not provide free water and food. If you want to drink water, you can either buy it at your own expense or bring a bottle directly and install free drinking water provided by the airport near the boarding gate. Both hot and cold are available, which is quite good!

At the time of departure, we didn’t buy a luggage check-in ticket. We only relied on the free carry-on 7KG of luggage. In fact, our luggage exceeded the standard. At first, we were still very worried, but when we heard that the departure luggage was not strict, we took the plane smoothly.

When departing from China, AirAsia flights have to change boarding passes at L1-4 counter, which is said to be the case for all departing from China. However, in foreign countries, everyone can print their boarding passes online. I booked seats online at home in advance and played 4 boarding passes, which is much more convenient. Of course, you can also choose to send the two-dimensional code to the mobile phone and print it on the machine on the phone.

After about 3 hours of flight, we arrived at Bangkok International Airport!

There are also many shops here, which are open 24 hours a day! In fact, MM people can buy very cheap sunscreen here. They don’t have to bring it from home. BOOTS stores have Bangkok’s 70 + sunscreen for sale, equivalent to about RMB 60 yuan, which is cheap and practical!

L ‘Or é al at Thailand Airport is also the cheapest. If you want to buy more, buy more!

On the flight, the stewardess will issue you an entry registration card, fill it out as required, and get off the plane and go directly through the border inspection!

When you get out of the terminal, you will find that there are many bank counters, change money and ATMs. However, it is not cost-effective to exchange money at the airport. The exchange rate is only 4.0 or so, which is too low. If you are not in a hurry, you can go out to the city and exchange it again. The exchange rate will rise to about 4.5. (It is said that purple banks have the highest exchange rate, which I have not compared.)

We are not so troublesome, because we have set up a bank’s savings card in China, and there is no handling fee for withdrawals from other places around the world (on machines with UnionPay logo), so we can take Thai baht anytime and anywhere without worrying about the exchange rate.

It was already over 3 o’clock when we got out of the terminal (Thailand’s time was one hour slower than China’s). Fortunately, we had a strategy in advance. Magic Food, which is quite famous beside Gate 8 on the first floor, had a midnight snack. The things here are quite cheap, with an average of about 10 yuan equivalent to RMB. You can choose different fast foods by exchanging coupons at the counter. Like the food cities in domestic shopping malls, you have many choices and the prices are favorable.

We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel after eating and drinking. In fact, we can take the subway line during the day, but we arrived too early and had to take TAXI. Speaking of TAXI, I am a little strange. On the same day when we took a taxi from the airport to the hotel, the driver only charged the actual price of 300B, but on the other day when we came back from Phuket and took a taxi from the airport to the same hotel, the driver and we charged 50B of the airport service fee and 45B of the high-speed fee, thus we took a taxi to the hotel for 100B more.

This is our hotel IMM fusion on Sukhumvit, next to the BTS station, less than 2 minutes away, very convenient.

The overall environment of the hotel is also very good and looks quite distinctive.

WIFI is especially important for me when my mobile phone has no signal, and the WiFi signal here is very good, which is much better than the WiFi signal that our hotel in Phuket is always unable to connect to. Of course, this is another story.

They all sell such gadgets. Brother said, “How do I feel like I am accompanying you to the Peace Shopping Mall?” –!

This is sugar wrapped in leaves. The taste… depends on personal preference!

A string of 3, inexpensive, 20B

I don’t know it’s what. It’s not good to drink. I think it’s all saccharin.

There are also many of these fried seafood… … …

There are also magic tricks on the streets…

Very cute shoes, I also bought a pair, ha ha

There are many small shops going inside, selling all kinds of small ornaments.

Milk tea is quite delicious! It’s thick!

This is coconut ice cream… … …

After visiting the weekend market, it was already 5: 00 p.m. At this time, we quickly took the subway to the Chao Phraya River, because we had to swim the Chao Phraya River at night and have a buffet on the boat!

In fact, friends who have plenty of time can arrange a night tour of the Chao Phraya River and a day tour of the Grand Palace on one day, because they are nearby. However, as we have to catch a plane to Phuket tomorrow night and have no time to stay in Bangkok at night, we chose to play today.

In fact, we didn’t do a good job in advance. We only knew that there was a night tour and we didn’t know where to board the ship, so we chose to take BTS and transfer to Saphan Taksin on line S6, because there was a dock outside the subway.

There was a service desk at the dock. We told the staff that we were going to swim at night and have dinner on the boat. She took us to the reception desk. This is the cruise ship Princess Zhaopaya. They offered 1300B for one person and we cut it to 1100B.

At 7 o’clock sharp, the staff took us to another dock by boat, where the original official boarding place was!

Cruise time 2 hours

This is where to board the ship.

There will be such a waiter who will put a small sticker on you. We are on the 7: 45 boat.

This is the kind of ship

Princess Zhaopaya Cruise Ship

On the upper and lower floors, we are sitting on the upper floor, where it is open in the air. It is good to blow air, but it is not good to rain.

Boarding the ship… … …

There is a welcome drink at each table, which is quite delicious.

There are still many people! Buffet form, eat casually!

Night view on the bank of the river!

It’s quite cool to watch while eating…

When everyone finished eating, they went to the deck to sing and dance. At the table next to us was a group of South Korean smectas. They were so excited that they pulled blacks from other countries to dance all the time.

The tour lasts 2 hours, 7: 45-9: 45

This is the end of the first day’s trip. Take a taxi back to the hotel from here, 120B.

D2: Visit the Grand Palace and Sleeping Buddha Temple during the day on June 11, and fly to Phuket from Bangkok at 9: 45 p.m.

Early in the morning, we set off for the Grand Palace. Children, remember to put on trousers instead of slippers and suspenders.

I put on the pants I bought yesterday in Zaduzha and set off! The weather is still fine today…

Tickets for the Grand Palace have increased in price! 400B, but it’s not too expensive to convert it into RMB. Since all of them have come to Thailand, they must come and have a look ~ ~

But I don’t know if I don’t go, and when I go, I get a fright. Almost all the tour groups in the Grand Palace are Chinese groups-! There are Chinese everywhere… … …

Queuing up to buy tickets, fortunately there are not many people… … …

Tickets!

Look, many people do this…

The Thai palace is really willing to use “materials” ~ ~ everywhere is resplendent and magnificent…

This is the door god, the hag, Thailand’s door god is different from China’s, is facing inward, China is facing outward ~

The weather is good, that is, everything looks good ~ ~

Their flowers, sun-tinged red, look exceptionally fine!

This is a long corridor, which records the story of the war between human beings and demons with paintings. I heard the tour guide nearby say that those who wear less are good people…

This is the litchi juice sold outside … … 25B

Ha ha, see our Lord Guan in Thailand!

It is said that this is a Thai king who especially likes Chinese culture and built such a palace for his mother.

It is about Sir Zhong, Eight Immortals and Chinese bonsai.

It’s hot, have a popsicle ~

It’s durian

Soldiers on guard

After visiting the Grand Palace, we took a TUTU bus to Kaoshan Road for lunch.

Kaoshan Road, a famous bar street, but there is no place for us to have lunch…

It was so hot at noon that we didn’t want to sit in an open bar for lunch…

So, we found a Japanese restaurant with air conditioning-!

Beer ~ ~

Matcha Milk Tea ~

Ice cream

Doesn’t it look good? We had a great meal, less than 1000B, the key is to have air conditioning, ha ha ~

This is the Japanese restaurant, on the second floor ~

This is Uncle M of Thailand. He is saying: Savadhika!

After eating, continue to take a taxi to the Sleeping Buddha Temple ~ ~

Tickets to Sleeping Buddha Temple 100B, one bottle of water ~ ~

There is a row of jars here, which can be exchanged for small change and coins with the staff, and they can be put all the way over … so the sound of “ding ding ding” is often heard here.

There are many cats lying on the ground outside ~

Next to it is Avalokitesvara

I like this roof very much.

At 5 or 6 o’clock, we hurried to the airport and took a plane to Phuket.

By the way at the airport, we settled the dinner.

This is Winter Yin Skill Noodle

There is a BOOTS in the airport that can buy cheap sunscreen.

Because I staggered my cousin and sister-in-law when booking tickets. They were on the 8: 45 p.m. Flight and I was on the 9: 45 p.m. Flight.

So, I put them on the flight and wandered around the terminal.

It is said that the WiFi in Bangkok’s terminal is free, but it can take one hour to fill in the form to get the WiFi password at the information service desk.

As for my original flight that took off at 9: 45, AirAsia had to delay boarding until 10: 50! Therefore, my flight landed slowly at Phuket Airport at 12 o’clock…

However, during the period when I was delayed, my cousin and sister-in-law had already agreed on the itinerary of Phuket’s one-day tour at the airport travel agency.

Well, because we plan to go to Emperor Island and PP Island in Phuket, it is more convenient to follow the group, because we save the trouble of finding a car to and from the dock.

At the same time, we also booked tickets for the evening performance and the performance in Magic Paradise. We suggested that everyone arrange the round-trip bus in advance, because some friends did not arrange the car to go back in advance, and finally it cost 800B to take the TUTU bus.

Finally, we and the travel agency finalized the emperor island, PP island, transvestite performance, magic paradise performance together (including the special bus to and from each scenic spot), 5800B one person.

This is our hotel Siralanna, just a street behind Patong Beach. The environment is good. If you want quiet, stay away from hotels near the beach,

Entering the hotel, I saw two small elephants with towels on the bed.

Room Entrance

Bathroom

The overall environment is still good.

Bath articles

Breakfast buffet included

Breakfast is good, with bread, porridge and powder ~ ~ I find that most of the people living here are Chinese!

On the third day, after breakfast, we set off!

Ttips: In particular, we should remind everyone not to drink milk or tea before going to sea! ! Because the speedboat is too fierce, it will faint and vomit! !

Remember to ask the tour guide for seasickness medicine before departure. It would be better to take it half an hour in advance!

The dock has arrived, and the weather is fine today ~ ~

Go to sea

A ship of people, all countries have ~

It takes about half an hour to get to Emperor Island.

The water was so clear that the fish could be seen on the boat

This is the snorkeling site ~

The Thais on board took a picture of me.

It’s so beautiful

Mullet caught by crew ~

Mavericks on the shore.

Eat buffet here at noon ~

Panorama of the beach…

There are many shells and coral fragments on the beach.

Happy and happy ~ ~

I am the one who was kicked…

I picked up coral and made this, ha ha ~ ~

I jump!

After returning from Emperor Island, we went directly to this restaurant near the hotel for dinner.

The cost performance is quite high ~

At 7 o’clock, a car came to pick us up to watch the transvestite show.

This SIMON show is located near Patong Beach, less than 10 minutes away from our hotel

After watching it, I felt that it was actually ordinary, that is, the transvestite danced on the stage.

However, if we come to Thailand without watching the transvestite performance, we will not be considered to have been to Thailand, so we still chose to watch it.

The toilet is quite beautiful, ha ha, so I couldn’t help taking a picture.

Entering the stadium, it was such a stage that I could not take photos after the performance, so I obediently put away the camera.

After the performance, the demons will come out to take photos with everyone. It is always known that you have to pay for a photo taken. 100B is a person. Note that you have to give all the photos taken by several transvestites with you. As soon as you take a photo in the past, they will all come over and only give one of them. They don’t do it…

The demon in pink clothes is the best in business. It is estimated that everyone prefers the pure and sweet demon ~ ~

You see, the photos are taken one by one. Brother said this demon is a bit like Liu Yan ~

This is definitely a comedian. She won the most applause on the stage because she always played some funny characters and ran to the audience.

Everyone did all they could, and I felt like a demon recruiting guests on the roadside ~ ~ ha, ha, ha

If you want to save money, just want to see the transvestite, don’t want to see their performance, then you go outside the stage to hold, they will come out to give you a good shot at the end of each match ~ ha ha

Day 4: PP Island

Today, we set out for PP Island early in the morning to absorb

Yesterday’s lesson, today we didn’t drink milk, so we didn’t get seasick at all!

It takes one hour to get to PP Island by boat from Patong Beach. Similarly, before departure, the tour guide will ask you if you want to rent flippers. 100B a day, everyone pay attention to this! Flippers are still very necessary, because my brother didn’t rent flippers today and was pricked by coral. It was horrible ~ ~ The small thorns stayed in his feet. The pain of the thorns was easy to break when picked out with needles. The long one was curved.

Why didn’t you rent flippers today, because yesterday they dived on Emperor Island, which was relatively deep and their feet couldn’t reach the bottom, so they felt that they didn’t need to rent it today. As a result, they went to the snorkeling site on PP Island and found that it was very shallow and it was easy to step on the coral under the bottom. Brother was caught accidentally… Therefore, it is suggested that everyone rent it ~ ~ Safety comes first!

In one hour, we arrived at the first stop of PP Island.

PP Island has a lot of trips and has to go to 3 small islands, so naturally it is not as leisurely as Emperor Island.

After stopping here for half an hour, we continued to board the ship and headed for the next place: Monkey Island.

The water here is still very clear, and you can see the fish in the water.

This is Monkey Island. There are many monkeys on an island. They all want to ask people what to eat. It’s a bit fierce. Don’t get too close.

Perhaps people throw their food to them, so the water in this area is very dirty.

It is said that bird’s nest producers here…

Then, we continued to rush to the snorkeling site…

It’s not far from Monkey Island. It’s only a few minutes away

Throw a loaf of bread down and many fish will swim over.

However, the water here is very shallow, and it is here that my brother was pricked to his feet.

Look, there are many fish ~

This is a picture taken in the water with Canon underwater camera D10, ha ha

At noon, we came to the main island of PP Island for lunch.

The dishes are a little short ~ ~ not as good as the buffet on Emperor Island yesterday.

After eating, visit the island at will.

Continue to bask in my bag, ha ha

Then we went to the last island, where we were going to swim ~ ~

This island is very beautiful. It is very beautiful.

Continue to spell these words with coral fragments, ha ha

For Xiao Jian

Found a foreign beauty…

We had a pleasant afternoon here

The ship’s crew will prepare delicious fruit for you, and you can eat it at will.

Cold drinks and ice cream are also sold on the island.

When we came back from PP Island, we booked the Magic Paradise at night. It was said that the ticket for the Magic Paradise was the most expensive, 2000B, equivalent to 400RMB. In fact, it was a paradise. There were no amusement items. We watched them all. The most important thing was a performance at 9 o’clock. In the form of epic, we said that a totem of Thailand, elephant. The equivalent of 400 yuan is to have a dinner and watch a performance. If you don’t think it is worth it, you can not go. It is nothing more than some dances and elephant performances.

Here are the tickets

Entrance to Paradise

Dinner is self-service, there are still many choices, we are in Area F, here are all Chinese-!

The Chinese are too strong to go anywhere…

It’s pretty inside

The 9 o’clock performance is not allowed to bring cameras in. If they find out that it is to be hosted, I think it is very troublesome. Fortunately, my micro-list is relatively small, and they didn’t find out…

This is the place for the performance.

This is the toilet, ha ha ~

I like this fluorescent color very much.

This is the car arranged by Magic Paradise after the end to pick up and drop off tourists, but it is necessary to buy tickets in advance. It is said that the paint on the car body is very beautiful. Take a closer look at made in USA.

Day 5: Wandering around Patong Beach, I went to let’s Relax for a Thai massage in the afternoon. It was so cool…

Patong Beach

We played this! 1300B ~ ~ I took a lap in the sky, and in retrospect it was not worth it, ha ha ~

But since I haven’t played, let’s play

After that, we went to have a massage ~ we chose 1100B, 2 hours and 45 minutes, and the whole set was done, which was so cool…

When we went, it was just under renovation, so the staff sent us to another place. The environment was very good.

There is also tea to drink after the massage. This tea called Pandon is sweet and delicious.

This is a spider elephant seen in BIG C. We think it is very funny ~ ~

It is said that there is a BATA shoe store in BIG C, and Chinese people who come here will choose to buy this brand of shoes, because compared with the domestic price, the sales here are simply too cheap ~ ~ the three of us bought 10 pairs of shoes to go back, just like they came to make goods!

The dinner was eaten in a Thai restaurant called Jin in BIG C Square. It was very enjoyable, especially pineapple rice, which was very good! Everyone must eat pineapple rice when they go to Thailand!

We finished eating one pineapple rice and ordered another!

In the evening, we left the hotel and took a bus to the airport 700B. Everyone can bargain. 500B is not a problem.

Phuket’s airport does not have free WiFi, only some dining places will have their own WiFi.

We wandered around Bangkok, shopping everywhere. We got off at Siam Station by bus. On the first floor of Siam Paragon, there is luggage storage beside the supermarket. We left all the big boxes there for free. There is a supermarket next to it. Those who need to buy some special snacks can choose to stroll there. The shopping malls in Siam area are all connected together, which is very suitable for shopping. There are all kinds of goods from high-end to low-end. Let’s get what we need.

MBK Shopping Mall, the T-shirts here are very cheap, 90B one is available.

We also bought a lot of NARAYA Bangkok bags on the first floor here. It is very good to give them back to relatives and friends.

I also bought a dress for my family 33, ha ha

In this way, our tour to Thailand ended on the 6th. Thank God for giving us such good weather. Thailand is a good place with low consumption and beautiful scenic spots. There is no situation of domestic tourist attractions killing tourists. I will continue to go to Thailand in the future when I have the chance! !

Ha ha, I also hope everyone can like my travel notes and support me a lot!

Finally, the sunscreen I use is snow muscle essence 50 + sunscreen, which is very easy to use, refreshing and not greasy, and has good sunscreen effect. I haven’t been tanned very much.

Nice to meet you. Thailand (Bangkok – Chiang Mai – Pai District – Koh Samet – Pattaya. Introduction)

After returning from Thailand for more than ten days, I finally have time to calm down and sort out the strategy. This is a pure strategy. I hope I can help my friends who will go in the future.

The trip lasted for ten days, actually nine days. On September 1, Wuhan Tianhe Airport flew to Bangkok Langman, and on the morning of September 10, Langman flew to Tianhe Airport.

The average cost is 5000 yuan, excluding shopping.

The air ticket was purchased three months in advance, and AirAsia flew directly, plus 20kg of luggage, with a round-trip air ticket of 1300 yuan per capita.

Telephone cards are bought in advance in China. Universal Taobao is cheaper than buying it in Thailand. Happy cards have 1.5 G traffic in 7 days. Of course, after 7 days, the traffic is gone, and there are still 100 plants that can be used to make phone calls. Mobile phones have poor signals and may only receive 2G networks. All Netcom or Unicom can connect to 4G networks.

Regarding currency exchange: Before we went, we exchanged 5,000 RMB Thai baht at BOC at an exchange rate of about 5.06. When we bought food on the plane, we felt that it was calculated at an exchange rate of 4.5. The window for changing money at the airport is about 4.7, so it is suggested that it is more cost-effective to exchange some Thai baht appropriately in China. If you shop 711, you can pay Alipay, but I haven’t used it. Some restaurants in Chiang Mai and Pai District offer WeChat payment. Duty-free shop shopping card is very cost-effective, directly according to the exchange rate of the day, and there is no handling fee.

In Thailand, ATM machines with UnionPay logo can directly take Thai baht, which can be seen everywhere in the streets. Generally speaking, it is very convenient.

Visa: You can apply for a visa in advance when you go to Thailand. You can find a merchant to handle it on Taobao. The price is around 248. Generally, you only need to determine which consular area you are in and then prepare two 2-inch white registration photos. It is easy to handle, usually 7-10 days. You can also choose to fly to landing visa after Thailand. Now the cost in landing visa is 2,000 plants, and it may take an hour or two to queue up when your character is not good. Therefore, it is suggested to do a good job in advance.

This trip is:

Bangkok – Chiang Mai – Pai District- Koh Samet – Pattaya – Bangkok

Accommodation: You Duoduo, Huamanlou, Chiang Mai, You Duoduo Inn and Tai Mei Manor in Pai District are both good, and you can also have friendly Chinese service. Other places can be booked on AGODA or Booking. AGODA can be paid with Alipay, which is more convenient. After the decision is made, you can print a copy as a voucher to facilitate your check-in, mainly with English and Thai addresses on it. It will also be more convenient to find a place to take a taxi. I used agoda. Before I went, my mobile phone got on and off the APP and I could go to Thailand for direct navigation and positioning.

Tips: Accommodation in Thailand is calculated by people, so the standard room can only accommodate two people. I will see such information as extra beds when booking. Personally, I think it is better to add beds when the odd number requires extra beds. The three of us in our party are either looking for three people or standard rooms with extra beds.

Tipping: To add, Thailand is a country that pays attention to tipping, so when someone helps to carry boxes or check out, they can give some tips appropriately, usually 20 plants. Giving coins is said to be an act of despising people, but living in youth tours can be ignored. My stay in Bangkok is a hostel and I don’t want tips. If the taxi driver’s service is very good, he can also give some tips, but usually there are fractions of the taxi, so he can not change the change, and some drivers are not very good at the service and are not willing to change the change.

Transportation:

Bangkok: Bangkok is a city with heavy traffic, so there are frequent traffic jams.

Langman Airport to the city center: The airport bus is actually similar to the bus. There are two routes A1 and A2.

A1: Langman Airport-Mochit2 (North Bus Station). You can change to Tiantie at Mochit to go to the city center. This is also the bus stop from Bangkok to Chiang Mai.

A2: Langman Airport-Victory Monument. Victory Monument is in the city center. The fare is 30.

Attached is Bangkok Traffic Transfer Map

Bangkok Tiantie is relatively expensive. Once I took three stops at 28 Thai baht, which felt more expensive than that in China. However, if the day is earlier and you have to go to several places, it is recommended that you buy one-day pass, with a package of 140 baht per day, which can be used indefinitely on the same day, but only BTS, dark green and light green lines in the above picture. This is more cost-effective and will not cause traffic jams.

BTS rail transit includes the northern bus station (mo chit) and the eastern bus station (Ekkami). Mo Chit is heading for Chiang Mai, and this is also the stop for the Chaduzha Weekend Market. Ekkami goes to Pattaya by car for 2 hours and the fare is 108 Thai baht. Siam Siam Business Circle is also on the rail transit line, and shopping is also very convenient. Saphan Taksin is the last stop of the dark green line. You can go to the Riverside Night Market at Exit 2 over there. There are free ships to pick up and drop off at night, which runs every half hour. Just see many people queuing up. There is also a kind of boat with 20 plants, don’t take the wrong seat!

Riverside Night Market

When there is traffic jam, the car will jump the watch if it cannot move.

There is also the Tutu car, this may be a bit of a random asking price, depending on the character, remember to ask more and cut the price by the way!

Chinatown is not far from Peng Railway Station in South China. You may as well walk there when you have enough time. The railway station provided storage service. At that time, we had 100 suitcases a day, which was quite convenient.

South China Peng Railway Station

Bangkok to Chiang Mai train:

If you stay in Bangkok for a few more days and then go to Chiang Mai, it will be too late to buy a train ticket after you arrive in Bangkok. You can buy it in advance on Universal Taobao in a hurry. You can send it to the hotel you stay in. If it is early enough, you can even send it to China and also mail it. Is the handling fee is relatively high, a person about 30. If they are all girls, they can also choose women’s and children’s carriages without extra charge, which is very good!

Never try to buy tickets on Thailand’s official website. Of course, there may be changes in the future.

I have tried the so-called strategy on the Internet, and the latest one is probably several months ago. It is said that you can register yourself and pay for it. After practice, I found that now I can only choose the time and train number you need on the official website, then fill in the email box, passport information and seat grade of the passengers, and then there is no next step. The next day I received the other party’s email in my email, which is probably a payment link. The result shows whether a person wants a handling fee of 200 or 300 plants, excluding the 3% handling fee paid by credit card, which is simply more expensive than Taobao!

Chiang Mai Railway Station

Chiang Mai Transportation:

Chiang Mai has the largest number of two cars. There are basically 20 cars per person in the ancient city and 30 cars around the ancient city. The railway station and bus station are a little far away from the ancient city, which is more expensive. The three of us have a total of 150 plants from the railway station to the Huamanlou Tour Duoduo Inn in Chiang Mai.

Sometimes if it is difficult for the driver to find the bus address and the language is not very good for communication, he can make a phone call and let the driver speak Thai to the other party. He has tried several times. This is the most convenient and effective method!

For those who can ride motorcycles, renting a car is a very good choice. I have seen the online price before, about 200 plants a day. However, it should be noted that Thailand is driving on the left.

Chiang Mai to Pai District:

There is an aya service on the right side of Chiang Mai Railway Station Square, which can provide minibuses to Pai District. It runs every hour and can arrive in three hours. There is a 15-minute rest on the road and the fare is 150. Before, I saw WeChat paying attention to Aya Service’s public number on the Internet. I can book the minibus at the back on the first day and choose where to get on the bus. They will pick it up directly at the hotel. The return trip can also be sent to Chiang Mai Railway Station, Chiang Mai Bus Station or Chiang Mai Ancient City. However, I am not very good in character. I made a reservation on the first day, but I didn’t come to pick it up the next day, saying there was no order. Therefore, if you take the train to Chiang Mai, it is suggested to book tickets in advance.

There is also one of the most awesome ways, riding a motorcycle to Pai District. It is said that there are 762 turns. I can only worship my friends who go by bike!

People who are carsick suggest to prepare some carsickness medicine. Otherwise, you may vomit and vomit to Pai District!

You can also choose to ride a motorcycle or charter a car in Pai District County. There are also many travel agencies in the town that provide one-day and half-day tours.

Chiang Mai to Koh Samet:

You can buy a ticket to Luo Yong at Window 6 of Chiang Mai Bus Station. However, if the best bus needs to be bought in advance, you can also turn to Universal Taobao to book tickets and print them out directly as electronic tickets, or download electronic orders to the station and ask them to help print them. You will also be told how many platforms to get on the bus. Someone will ask you and tell you at the waiting position.

Sunset glow at Chiang Mai bus station, planes flying in the sky!

NCA buses provide food and drinks, and you can take them with you without buying food. According to my experience, everyone will provide a box of juice, a bottle of spring water, a can of Pepsi, a box of lunch and a box of sandwiches. It was distributed in two time periods. Chiang Mai-This bus to Luo Yong will pass through Pattaya, and it is also very convenient to go to Pattaya.

Luo Yong – Koh Samet Island

After arriving at the bus station in Luo Yong, you can choose to take a taxi or a two-car bus to the bus terminal. I have seen the strategy on the Internet. It costs 500 cars per bus, which is still quite expensive. Some Chinese still take this bus. We share 500 cars with our compatriots to the bus terminal, 100 cars per person.

There are said to be two docks on the other side of the Banpei dock. One is the big ship dock and the other is the speedboat dock. We should have been sent to the speedboat dock. Finally, we chose to take the speedboat to the island, and then the big boat returned. A total of 350 plants were sent to the beach of the hotel. Moreover, there was no need to buy tickets to the island. Koh Samet Island itself is a national forest park with 200 tickets. The speedboats are all sent to Owangduan Beach, where you can avoid tour groups. The sea water is also excellent. There are 100 large ships to and from the island. Tickets are needed to get to the island. Living on Diamond Beach is relatively suitable for taking large ships.

Aowangduan Beach

Transportation on Koh Samet Island:

Koh Samet Island is not big, you can rent motorcycles, and even have two or four sightseeing battery cars. The price is much higher than that of other places. It is calculated by the hour. Of course, there is enough time, and it is also good to walk. It takes us half an hour to walk from Aowangduan to Diamond Beach.

There are many two cars on the island, which is their TAX. The more people there are, the more cost-effective they will be.

Flame Show, also known as Fire Dance Show

It is a project that cannot be missed on Sammy Island. It is said that there are several beaches, but the most famous one is Diamond Beach, which can be found by navigation in Ploy Bar and Google Maps. It is most convenient to have dinner and watch the show there, but the food is really bad and expensive. In fact, you can walk over to 8 o’clock and watch it.

Fire Dance Show

When you get off the boat and come out of the dock, you will see a 711. There is a minibus at the door. You can take a minibus to Pattaya or Bangkok. No matter you go to Pattaya or Bangkok, there are 200 plants. Bangkok should be sent to the station. Pattaya can ask the other party to send it to the hotel you stay in, and it will be sent to the other party even if it is difficult to find it.

Pattaya:

In Pattaya, we have two goals, the transvestite show and the pedestrian street. We suggest booking tickets on Taobao on the first day, like the Tiffany transvestite show we ordered. If we buy it directly at the show, we need 2,000 Thai baht and 85 RMB on Taobao. The transvestite show cannot be photographed. It is very strict and cannot be lucky. After the program, you can take a photo with the transvestite, 100 Thai baht. Watch the show and send a glass of juice.

The show was not very far from the pedestrian street, and I passed by when I took the bus, so I decided to go there. However, many red-light districts in Pattaya at night were full of lights, the girls were fine, and the men were hooked up sometime. It’s not very messy either. Even a large family of tour groups came out. It’s good to have a look.

Pattaya to Bangkok Transportation:

You can take a bus to bus terminal, Take the bus to Pattaya, Personally, I feel that Pattaya, a two-car car, is the most expensive, It’s also a bit of a wild asking price, However, on the road, I saw that many local people can try to stop the two cars. Looking at the map, I probably know the direction. I should be able to get there on the straight road. It will be much cheaper. It is also a good experience. We tried it once and it was very good. We got off the bus farthest and last. The driver also took us to the station.

Pattaya has quite a number of buses to the eastern bus station in Bangkok. The ticket window has written about the bus station in the northern part of Mo Chit or the bus station in the eastern part of Ekkami. The number of buses to the eastern part is the largest, while the number to the northern part is relatively small. We are to Ekkami, 108.

Eat!

First of all, the price is not expensive in other places except Koh Samet Island. The three of us spend 300-450 plants each time. Bangkok is slightly more expensive. Chiang Mai and Pattaya in Pai District do not have more than 400 plants.

Bangkok went to Watergate and ate the famous Watergate chicken rice. Although the queue was very long, it was also fast, cheap and delicious. Mainly to eat chicken rice, chicken oil rice and all kinds of chicken, pork is also very delicious! Soup is served when meals are ordered.

Watergate Chicken Rice

It is still very convenient to order food in Thailand. There will be Thai and English, and even some restaurants have Chinese. Generally, the food can be served with chicken, pork, beef or seafood. The price is generally 45 Thai baht, because we are not used to seafood. Chicken is the most, and one dish is about 50-80 plants.

In Thailand, you have the opportunity to try Xiadongyingong Soup, Green Papaya Salad, Fried River Powder, Pineapple Seafood Fried Rice, Mango Glutinous Rice, Thai North Curry Noodles and various mixed dishes of chicken, pork and seafood. Only what can be seen on the menu. I don’t necessarily have the specific name. Delicious food is the most important. Night markets also have a lot of food and cannot be missed. Red curry is spicy, yellow curry and green curry taste lighter, fresh flavor is the main! Some dishes have sweet taste. You can ask when ordering. If you are not used to eating, you can not have sweet taste.

7-11: I really don’t know that I can go to the 7-11 convenience store when eating what in Thailand. Although the store is not large, I still eat a lot of drinks of various flavors, yogurt, potato chips and seaweed, and various snacks. There are also lunches, hamburgers, milk tea and coffee, especially when transferring to other places, which is the right place to eat, you can go shopping! In Thailand, 711 blossoms everywhere, and I go shopping every day. Sometimes it is also good to buy some back to my room for midnight snack.

Shopping and tax refund:

In boots and some shopping malls with “Refund for Tourist” signs or signs, yellow tax refund forms are issued at the tax refund counter with receipts and passports after shopping for more than 2,000 Thai baht. Most of the goods in duty-free shops are duty-free, and a small part also need tax refund. When you go to the airport, you can see the customs tax refund office written in Chinese. You can affix a seal and sign it. After passing the security check, there will be a tax refund window to collect the money. Now there is no handling fee for tax refund. It was said that there was a handling fee of 100 plants before.

Finally, I would like to say that it is not a problem to go to Thai language at all. As long as you can speak a little English and bring your smile, I believe there will be a pleasant journey!

Travel Alone-Phuket Island for Three Days and Two Nights

Life is so without warning. . It was decided a week ago. .

Without any notice, a man carried his luggage and set off.

10.17-19 Three Days and Two Nights Tour to Phi Phi Island, Phuket Island, Thailand-Set Sail ~!

Life is like a long journey. The journey will meet the scenery of what. We don’t even know. Because of her uncertainty, let’s cherish everything around us now. . Sometimes God will joke with us and let us encounter a little disappointment. However, she was so kind that she surprised us later. . On the 2nd of September, he hurried back to Singapore from Wuhan. In order to work what’s, as a result. . 9.2 till now. I’m still waiting. It’s not a job, it’s my visa. . In my mind, I have read countless times that the Singaporean government is too inefficient in doing things. It takes two weeks to approve a certificate, what starts in two weeks, visa results wait for two weeks, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait until the end. It’s a refusal. . If you refuse to sign, you will have to appeal. After signing up for two weeks to attend the appeal, you will wait for the result for two weeks. . . But. . Thank you very much for these two weeks and two weeks. . If I hadn’t refused the visa, I wouldn’t have gone to Phuket Island and wouldn’t have decided so quickly to travel myself. . Maybe because of boredom, maybe to improve my mood. But. . Thank you for refusing to sign. . Let me harvest such beautiful scenery. . Worth it. . Jetstar is the main airline on my voyage. Is it okay for them to serve what? . Anyway, it takes 2 hours from Singapore to Phuket Island. .

8.20 Singapore time-9.05 am Thailand time (Thailand is one hour earlier than China) arrived. . Two hours. . Let me change the world. . Change a life, life is so magical. . That day. . No. 10.17. . I spent 25 hours a day. . Because of an hour’s jet lag. . Ha ha

Because I did some homework before and knew that their taxis would kill people. . . Just go to their local airport bus called (mini bus) in Thailand. . The locals can hardly speak English. . I seldom meet someone who can speak. But there are many foreigners, many, many, and it is an island that belongs to tourism. . If you are good at English, you can go with foreigners, of course, if they are alone. . Thailand’s peak tourist season is November-March. Because it is not rainy season and the weather is fine, most people will choose these months. . But because I went to the end of October. So the trip was not delayed by the rain and there was no crowded crowd. . A very comfortable journey. . Perhaps it is also good luck. . . I just decided on the trip a week in advance, and as a result, it was just right. . Thailand is a country that focuses on tourism. So there is a custom of tipping in Thailand. ,. What I checked was that the tip was usually 20. Because Thai currency 20 is the smallest banknote, it is impolite not to give tips to coins, so I usually give 20 and then give 50 if I go to massage. By the way. . The RMB Thai currency is 1.: 5, which means that 1 yuan is almost 4.6-8 Thai currency. This time I brought 6,000 Thai dollars, which was almost 1,250 RMB. It was just right for 3 days. Hey hey. . Because there is no particularly large expenditure, so. . Not bad. . I feel that the consumption over there is almost the same as that in China, just massage is really in place, the scenery is really good, very good ~!

Uh-huh. . . Take the airport bus all the way from Phuket Airport to Patong Beach. . The mood is beyond words. . I kept taking pictures of the scenery along the way with my mobile phone. . . The camera of my mobile phone can already take a beautiful view, let alone the bill of lading. . By the way. On Phuket Island. . There are many islands, of which Patong coast is the most famous and lively. If you go for the first time. I prefer to go to Patong, because most people are there. . For the second and third vacation, if you want to find a clean place, you can choose other islands. . Because most of them are very beautiful. . So I’m so high. . Waiting to reach my Padong coast. . Patong beach. . Mini bus is the 150 thai dollars or about 30 rmb that will take you directly to your hotel. It’s the same price as Wuhan. So I’ll look left and right. Time has passed quite quickly. .

9.05 landing. What’s entry formalities will be completed around 10 o’clock. Thai is landing visa, Chinese passport to fill in the form of what. A visa fee of 1,000 Thai dollars does not require any tips and then queues up. . About a 15-day visa for you. Find the mini bus at about 10 o’clock and take more than an hour from the airport to the hotel-usually show the driver your hotel name and they will know where it is. Then I will tell you to get off when it arrives. . Because there are only a few hotel drivers on the east coast of Patong who are familiar with them. It was basically delivered to the gate of the hotel. . I arrived at the hotel about 12 o’clock. . After taking a nap, he started to set off. . Because what’s itinerary has not been decided. . First of all, I will go to the local travel agency to arrange my trip to Phi Phi Island tomorrow. . I have checked before and found out that Phi Phi Island is lurking, and then there is a viewing platform. Viewpoint is very famous. . My plan is to go there and stay there all night. . However, after asking all the travel agencies, they did not have that arrangement. They all went to take a speedboat for one day and started at 7: 00 a.m. and returned to Patong at 1: 00 p.m. for half a day. None of them stayed there for a day. . But it’s not expensive. Just 800 Thai dollars. . I finally decided to buy my own ticket and go to Phi Phi Island to find a hotel and a local travel agency. . I bought the ticket and paid the next price of 550 Thai baht. It was almost over 3 o’clock at that time. . A person wandering in the street. . I feel a little bored. . I’m going to have a Thai massage. . Ha ha, just ran to massage. . It’s really comfortable ~ ~ in an hour. ,. He began to continue to walk aimlessly. . In Patong, there is a main road across the street from the beach, so I won’t get lost. Ha ha ~ ~

This is almost the Patong Street I took when I was walking aimlessly. . By the way, there is a special bar street on the east coast of Patong. At night. . . Hey, hey, everyone is high. . Here. It is really a very, very good holiday paradise ~ ~! While walking. . I met two Englishmen resting on the roadside. It was found that he was swimming in the sea when his foot was stabbed by jellyfish. . So my feet seem to hurt. . I don’t know the details. They kindly reminded me to pay attention to swimming. . I didn’t want to swim on the Patong coast at that time, so I felt okay. . Seeing them is even less likely to swim, but the risk factor should be good and there is a local pharmacy. Those who usually sell those drugs then talked to them for a while. . They are quite gentlemanly and invited me to have dinner with them at night. . I said yes. Anyway, we got along with each other ~ ~

After separating from them. I walked one by one from the main road back to the beach in Padong. It was just 5: 30 at that time. . In fact, there was no sunset at that time and the sun was still relatively large. But it began to fall slowly. So I walked slowly and slowly on the beach, enjoying the peace. . The sun is slowly setting. . I saw a very magical sight, that is. . Half the sea is dark and half is bright. . It’s hard to believe what I said. But this is really the case. . I looked to the left and it was dark at sunset. When you look to the right, it seems as if it is bright. . Ha ha. . Have fun. . I took photos and walked along the seaside. . Immediately. . I think it’s amazing. . Last night, at 5.6 pm on the 16th of October. I am still working in the * * in Sands (the Hanging Garden Hotel in Singapore). . Today. . I. Standing in front of such a beautiful scenery. . It’s just a day away. Is two worlds. . This kind of mood. . There is no way to express it. . Can only be happy and happy. . By the way. . The sunset is really beautiful. .

It’s beautiful. Beautiful beyond description. . I always thought. In Zhangjiajie, China. It is already a blessing to climb Mount Lushan and feel the great rivers and mountains of China. . When I came here. . I really understand. . The scenery can be as pure as beauty. .

For the traces left behind. On the sand too, I wrote a picture of Phuket with the sunset. . It is precisely because I saw such a beautiful sunset in Patong. . The next day there was little sunset on Phi Phi Island. . But I’m not sorry. . I already saw it. . That’s enough ~ @

The next day. . I left at 7 o’clock in the morning. . If you buy a ticket, it will include pick-up and drop-off. Because Patong is still some distance from the dock. Therefore, the ticket will include round-trip transportation. . They picked me up at my hotel early in the morning. . Another hour, the earliest ship to the dock arrived at Phi Phi Island from 8.30 to 10 o’clock. . It was very sunny when I went that day. . I put on sunscreen and still dare not stay on deck for too long. . Probably after sailing and taking a few photos. I decided to give up and went to sleep in the cabin. Ha ha, when I woke up, I arrived. . Perhaps it was also the ship I went to that did not see much of the scenery that led me to come back. . There is no sun at all, I can enjoy these things to the fullest. . By the way, I would like to remind you. . The best thing is to wear a bathing suit under your clothes. I was lucky, too. The clothes I brought were just right. With three sets, I was wearing a very loose T that day, so even if there was a bathing suit inside, it was okay to put one set of T outside. .

Uh-huh. The ship came ashore. . It’s coming ~ ~! When I got off the boat, I was shocked by the scenery I saw before my eyes. . It’s beautiful. . . When I was in it, I didn’t react as much as I recall now. . Perhaps this is called not knowing happiness in happiness. .

After getting off the boat, I hurried to find a travel agency. See if there is any what plan for me that day. . Perhaps the local government has also specially designed a set of travel plans for people like us who only book tickets. . Disembarkation at 10:00. 11:00-6:00. 30 a day tour. 400 baht. Pack up a long-tailed boat. After that, there will be photos of our ship. . Then the boatman took us around the islands and beaches near Phi Phi Island. And a lunch. I feel that this kind of play is much worth it. .

This is our ship. . Isn’t it beautiful? . I didn’t book a hotel and boarded the ship. I thought I would go back and book it again. It’s not the peak tourist season. It doesn’t matter. . There are 11 people with me, that is, a total of 12 people have chartered a boat. Almost all of them have company, male and female friends, family and what’s. . There is an American who is also a person. Naturally, the two of us are company. . Before boarding the ship, they will give you a frog’s palm, which will be used for you to lurk later. The ship will have lurking glasses. ,. However, many people feel that they have to buy them if they are not clean. It’s okay, too. The one who went with me bought frog palms and glasses. . Myopic people can swim with invisibility. I thought it was going to change. Later, it was discovered that the latent glasses covered the nose. So there is no need to take invisibility. It’s just that some of the people I swam with took away the invisibility. . Why is mine still there? Is it still the invisible comparison made in China? ? When I was lurking, I didn’t take care of the cadres’ cleanliness. Anyway, going out to play was cool first. At best, it is only indirect kissing with others. . I threw it into the sea water and washed it. The sea water was salty and astringent. .

This is what lurking will see. The sea water there is very clear and clear. . I can see things in the sea when I sit on the boat and shoot. . Remember to wear frog palms when lurking. . The first time I went down, I was nervous and didn’t wear it. It would be tragic. . Drink water all the time. I don’t think it’s funny either. . I didn’t know. But it feels good to see so many small fish around you that you can reach out and touch them. . And fish are not afraid of people. As long as you have food on your hand. . They all came and what could eat anything. I see they are all surrounded by a group of fish with banana peels. . It was so fun. . After the first lesson. The second time I didn’t want to lurk, the American advised me to go down and look at the black barbed ball. . It looks good. . I took the frog’s palm and looked down. . I really don’t regret it. . Beautiful. . With a frog’s palm. . I’m not afraid. . Ha ha

The boatman showed us around the islands one by one. Once in a while, stop and lurk. . This is an island where we have lunch. . It’s the most beautiful beach I’ve ever photographed. . It is really the most beautiful and the most beautiful. . At that time I got off the boat and went straight ahead. . No food. Then the American took the meal and followed me to see it. . Because the sun is quite big, I only took photos and felt beautiful at that time. , but I didn’t expect to be so beautiful ~! ! ! ! Praise, praise ~! ! !

After we watched the sunset at sea, we landed. The sunset was not amazing, but also brought me a little regret. (But this regret finally became an wonder in my journey @!) I thought they would take us to the sightseeing platform to watch the sunset probably because there was not enough time. At that time, the sun should have disappeared when we landed at sea and climbed to the sightseeing platform. So we just looked at it at sea. It’s not amazing. After returning to Phi Phi Island, I started my own arrangement, looking for the hotel what first. Then take a shower. Go out to find food by yourself. . Walking, walking, hearing very high music, I walked along the sound. . I really don’t regret that I walked past. . At that time, it was about 9 o’clock. . The bar by the sea began to perform. . It’s called a fire show. . It really exploded. . They just set fire at both ends of the stick and started their unique show time. The tricks they play are very beautiful. The speed is so fast that the fire on the stick can be extinguished. . The performance will last for about an hour. . The final finale really shocked me again. . They don’t know how to do it. Let all the sparks on the stick splash out. A proud as a peacock-like spark scene and a large spark screen. . It’s beautiful. . I didn’t take photos because the cell phone didn’t work so well at night. But someone’s video may be found online. .

Up to 15 photos. .

Uh-huh. . . It’s the third day. . I have to go back to Padong from Phi Phi Island and then find a travel agency to book an airport bus to the airport and fly back to Singapore. . My journey is coming to an end here. . My boat is 1 noon. 30. I check out at 11. I went to the seaside and rented a reclining chair of 100 Thai baht all day. Lying for about an hour, is lying quietly. . It’s all very pleasant. ,. Looking at the vacationers around them, they are all holding books and then lying there reading. . Wow. . Too good. If there is another time. I am also holding a book at the seaside, listening to the sound of the waves beating on the shore, blowing the natural and fresh sea breeze, holding a book in my hand, and when I am tired, I look up at the sky or the island beach. . This kind of life. In a dream. . I really experienced it once. . The weather was beautiful on the return trip. There was no sun or rain, so I stayed on the deck for more than an hour from boarding to disembarking. . The crew on board also chatted with me very kindly for fear that I would be bored. . We blew the sea breeze all the way and talked about life. . That’s it. . We’re ashore. . I went back to Patong, found a travel agency, booked an airport bus and had an hour’s massage. It really returned home. . I am really reluctant to return to Singapore. . But after all, the journey will be over. . But thank you very much. . Everything on the journey. . Good memories. . So. I would like to say here. . Things have two sides. If there is no refusal. I may not have a chance to see such a scenery at this moment. . Store this experience. .

The amazing white temple in Chiang Rai

According to legend, there was a famous Thai Chinese painter born in Chiang Rai named Zhaleng School. The picturesque northern Thailand nourishes his love for life and profound artistic accomplishment. The selling price of each of his paintings is as high as hundreds of thousands of Thai baht to millions of Thai baht. People all respect him as the Azhan Zhaleng School, which means the Zhaleng School Professor.

The Zhaleng Sect, who graduated from Bangkok’s National University of Arts, has always been obsessed with Buddhist culture. It often lingers in temples and palaces of Thailand, indulges in the artistic charm of Buddhist murals, and wanders in the real and unreal Buddhist world.

Finally, Buddha came to his dream one night in ten years and pointed out to him a group of white temples as white as snow, silver and crystal clear. He was impressed by the beautiful scenery, and Buddha said to him, “Your responsibility is to build a white temple!”

The Zhaleng Sect woke up shocked from the dream and immediately wrote to draw the holy beauty-a temple that had never been seen before in the “capital of all Buddhas”: he was completely white, sparkling silver, with flying birds on the eaves, statues on the top, turtles lying on the piers, streamers lined with flowing clouds, and strewn at random…

After seeing this story on the Internet, I couldn’t help feeling fascinated.

Most temples in Thailand are resplendent and glittering, while Wat RongKhun in Chiang Rai is unique and unique with its pure white. Under the sun, this white temple roams in the blue sky, shining dazzling light, just like a beautiful work of art.

Lingguang Temple is located 15 kilometers southwest of Chiang Rai, on the side of the road between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. It was designed and built by well-known Thai artist Charlermchai Kositpipat in 1998. The artist devoted all his property, time and energy to the construction of this “White Temple”, which has not yet been completed. No one knows whether the White Temple will never stop or whether it will be like Spain’s Holy Family Cathedral, which has been under construction for hundreds of years.

There is also an exhibition hall for Kositpipat’s paintings in Lingguang Temple (photos cannot be taken). His works break through the frame of Buddhist tradition and are completely unconstrained style. They incorporate religion, cartoon images, political figures, modern spacecraft, 911 and other contemporary events into the paintings.

The picturesque “White Temple” is called “Wa Lang Kun”. It started construction in 1998 and has not yet been fully completed, but it is one of Thailand’s most distinctive Chinese temples.

When I stood in front of Wa Lang Kun, what I saw in my eyes and what I felt in my heart was a “shock” to describe. Beside the highway and the stream, from a distance, a group of white buildings were printed into view.

The amazing white temple.

It is said that the design inspiration of the White Temple comes from Buddha’s enlightenment to the world. When people want to go to heaven to see Buddha after death, they must pass through a bridge. Only those who have not done what’s bad things in their lives and are bent on doing good can pass through this bridge and ascend to heaven.

When people want to go to heaven to see Buddha after death, they must pass through a bridge. The bridge is guarded by two gods. Only those who have never done what’s bad things in their lives and are bent on doing good can pass through the bridge and rise to heaven. However, those who have done too many bad things and evil things in their lives will be laid down by the two gods and go to hell. The gates of hell are open at any time.

White Temple, also known as Wat RongKhun, is probably Longkun Temple, Lingguang Temple, Walongkun, Bailong Temple or commonly known as (White Temple) in Chinese. It has a plain white background and a silver mirror edge, which quietly reflects dazzling light. The whole body is snow-white and has no gold inlaid everywhere. Silver white is like delicate hands, stretching softly to the sky.

Pure white is unique and unique. Under the sun, this white temple roams in the blue sky, shining dazzling light. It is simply a beautiful work of art!

This is the Thai painting master named Chalermchai standing here to welcome tourists from all over the world.

The trees were covered with ghost heads.

There is such a golden building in a group of white buildings. I don’t know what the implication is.

The beautiful white temple is reflected in the water and still feels so beautiful.

The exterior of this modern Buddhist temple is decorated with fragments of mirrors, while the mountain-shaped windows are decorated with Nagas (multi-headed snakes and gods of the dim world), elephants and umbrellas. There are huge Buddha murals hand-painted by Kositpipat.

The water in the pond is very clear and the fish are swimming freely.

The beautiful white temple kept me pressing the shutter.

Tourists here are all impressed by this beautiful building.

White and spotless

The white is amazing.

It would have been more beautiful if the weather had been more sunny

I can’t name the fish in this pool either.

You need to take off your shoes to enter the main hall. In addition to the traditional large Buddha statues, the murals range from 911 to Terminator to Cross, which is quite modern. Wall murals are still being drawn, and artists who are working can be seen. But you can’t take pictures inside.

When I passed here, I had an inexplicable fear in my heart. Seeing these hands from hell, I seemed to come to the world to find some what to fulfill their long-cherished wish that they could not fulfill when they were alive.

This mighty dragon god is guarding both sides of the gate of the main hall, which should be to prevent those monsters from entering the main hall.

Very mighty, very imposing.

Exquisite white dragons guard the entrance of the hall.

Every place in the White Temple is so exquisite.

The animal sculptures in the open space are like white elves dancing on the grass.

I don’t know whether this sculpture is a cloud or a lotus flower.

Exquisite Memorial Arch

This is the main hall. There are still some perfect buildings under construction behind the main hall, which are not open now. It is said that the Master hopes to reach the romantic pole of nine and needs him and his disciples to continue their efforts.

Many tourists stood here and kept stopping and admiring, unwilling to leave for a long time.

I stand here to shoot up, down, left and right.

Such a beautiful place is still free of charge.

In addition to admiration or admiration

Seeing that a very ordinary light bulb was installed on it, I was thinking that the night scene of this White Temple did not know it was like what.

Shoot while walking, shoot while walking.

Every place is extremely exquisite in workmanship.

You can’t turn back from that road.

Out of the main hall from the left down, can’t walk the road, behind the main hall is still repairing a higher hall.

In a few years, the scale of the White Temple will definitely be even larger.

Every place in the White Temple is carefully done.

This building is for tourists to pray for blessings.

This building is for tourists to pray for blessings. It is full of blessing cards hung by tourists from all over the world. I found many blessing cards left by Chinese tourists on it.

This always thinks that it should be Chinese gossip. It turns out that Thailand also has it.

I have also left some memories here, hoping to find them when I have the chance to go again. Ha ha.

This is on the new shelf, but it won’t take many days to hang it up.

This is the side of a golden toilet.

The White Temple is still expanding, and these prayer trees are being planted one by one. Sooner or later, they will flourish.

This building is also very beautiful, so I took a few more photos.

This is a blessing card left by a couple who came to China. I took it down and wish them a long time together.

This building is not known to be used for what, but it is also very exquisite.

This is a table for tourists from all over the world to smear. It is already full and it is not easy to find a seam.

The toilet in the White Temple is magnificent and looks like a palace.

The inside of this toilet is also luxurious and unusual. It requires bare feet to enter.

You can wear slippers to enter here. Who would have the heart to dirty such a clean toilet?

The toilet is resplendent and magnificent.

The splendid golden toilet

The white temple reflected by the green lawn is more beautiful.

Beautiful, or beautiful

There are also many tourists taking pictures in front of this beautiful toilet.

The devil on the ground is also quite scary. If you match it with some dazzling lights at night, I don’t know if it will be what effect.

This is an exhibition hall with exquisite works of art and some paintings. It is free to visit. All the exhibits are priced at famous codes, but photos cannot be taken.

The amazing White Temple, I would like to see you again when I have the chance.

I couldn’t bear to leave, but I turned back and took another circle.

Take another reflection of the White Temple,

The amazing White Temple, if you want to see more photos, my photo album is more and more complete than here. Thank you for coming and guiding.

# Micro Travel Notes # Avoid Cold Phuket Island

In the cold days of 39 days in the south of the Yangtze River, ice and snow freezing rain started from Shanghai in the morning and flew 3,800 kilometers south. On the way, I took off my thick clothes and carried my backpacks bigger and bigger. In the afternoon, I arrived at Phuket Island on the Indian Ocean, which was already covered in heat wave and sweat. Walking on the beach in the evening, looking at the sunset in the Indian Ocean, the hot sea breeze blowing past, smoking people to sleep, thinking of the cold when leaving home in the morning, lamenting the social progress and technological development, and enjoying the blue sky, sunshine, beach and sea.

Pattaya’s Unique Style

Pattaya’s Unique Style

Early on, people who listened to Thailand’s return talked about “transvestites”. Frivolous language and ambiguous intonation make me very disgusted with “transvestite”. In my mind, these two words are almost synonymous with obscenity and pornography. When I learned that we had watched the “transvestite” performance on our itinerary, my attitude was not to agree.

“Transvestite” is one of Thailand’s characteristic tours, and there is a saying that “not seeing transvestite performances is tantamount to not coming to Thailand”. There are basically transvestite performance groups in all parts of Thailand, but the largest and most exciting ones are the “Aqsa Transvestite Performance” and “Tiffany Transvestite Performance” in the seaside resort city of Pattaya. It is said that the transvestites in these two performance venues are the most beautiful in Thailand. The performance venues are extremely luxurious and the performance venues are wonderful. The audience is almost full every day. We went to Tiffany, who performed specially for Southeast Asian tourists.

Before entering the stadium, there was already a lot of noise in front of the door. Transvestites dressed in gorgeous costumes took photos with tourists during the performance. The charge for each photo is 40 Thai baht. If there is no change, it will be changed.

Under the guidance of the manager, we came down to the VIP table in the middle of the first row, holding the juice delivered, and we entered a fantastic world. In the beautiful music and the magnificent background, beautiful actors appeared one by one. The tall figure and slim waist branches made me a woman who was thrilled. Ears wear gem earrings, chest hanging crystal necklace, gorgeous dress wrapped around lotus steps, beads around emerald green, graceful, light and graceful, just like fairies descend to earth. There is also a wisp of green silk full of amorous feelings and a smile when looking back. It can be called absolute beauty. Oh, my God, I’m afraid stunned is a portrayal of the whole audience.

The performance level of the program is extremely high and the movements are extremely graceful. “They” (I really can’t write “them”) wear high heels of at least three inches, sing and dance, and sing classics from all over the world in various languages: Katyusha and Arirang are melodies that we are all familiar with. When I heard singing “Rose Rose Heart Drunk” in pure Chinese, my heart was really drunk. Although I know that because the vocal cords cannot be completely feminized, I just play the recording lip-synch. The delicious type has no difference and is more dedicated than some big players in China. At this moment, I have no concept of gender and no obscene feeling about “them”. Only the enjoyment and appreciation of art and beauty, only admiration and emotion. Photography is strictly prohibited in the venue. The tour guide threatened us that if we were found to have taken candid photos, we would still go to jail. The excellent view allows me to see the actor’s eyelashes, and the camera in the bag seems to be gaining momentum. I really want to take these beautiful and rare pictures, and I want my friends who have not come to share this visual feast with me. I restrained the movement of taking out the camera several times, not only for fear of being discovered, but also to show respect for actors and folk customs.

The 90-minute performance seemed to end in a blink of an eye. We took a photo with these beautiful actors in front of the door. Winning the three championships in the three beauty contests of 06.08. 10 in Thailand is the focus of my camera pursuit. Although these elegant smiles are professional, they are still charming.

In the dim light of night, Pattaya is brightly lit, fragrant wind fills the air, and melodious music seems to sing softly in my ear. Looking at these smiling “beauties”, my mood is more guilty and heavy. I feel guilty for my past prejudice, and I feel heavy for these “beauties” who have an average life span of only 40 years. The sharp contrast between the glamorous present and the cruel future constitutes their life. Is this road a willing choice or a necessity? I don’t want to delve into it. I only send my best wishes to these people with distorted gender and soul: May beauty last forever and youth last forever!

[Thai Self-Tour] Travel Preparation and Travel Strategy for the First Thai Tour with Full Load in fear and trembling

Overview

Last month, I received two important phone calls, one from my hometown unit, and two months later I officially retired to learn about the basic situation of some families. The other was from the staff who traveled to Duoduo, saying that my travel notes were selected for the ultimate award of “Let’s go abroad to Thailand Station”. The former is what I expected, while the latter is really an accident! Because there are too many bosses in the forum. Later, I carefully analyzed the three Duoduo birds who went to Thailand, and I couldn’t help admiring the cleverness of the decision makers. The three people represented three classes respectively, and I represented the basic civilians who were purely illiterate abroad. At that time, I was excited and accepted the gift. After thinking about it, I felt a little regretful: I didn’t know anything about English, Thailand’s political situation was unstable, and I was still free to travel alone. I couldn’t help breaking out in a cold sweat on my back! Fortunately, the family was very supportive. They said that it was really not possible. They just stayed in a place in Thailand to play and did not wander around.

When the second spring of my life comes, give me a big gift. When I live up to my great trust, I will go forward bravely… Fortunately, I still have nearly a month to read more strategies online.

The first step is to book a plane ticket immediately! Because December is the peak tourist season in Thailand, one price per day. Chunqiu AirAsia is the first choice for our working class. Therefore, I booked a large round-trip transportation from Shanghai to Bangkok in the spring and autumn, and a small round-trip transportation from AirAsia Bangkok to Jiami. Major traffic is less than 2K and minor traffic is nearly 600. There is an episode here. The website of AirAsia was unable to book tickets after a night of ordeal. It was useless to change many browsers. The next day, I called AirAsia and replied that I had tried Firefox. It was strange and it was really successful! When the air ticket was booked, it was really that there was no turning back. I carefully handed in my itinerary to the organizers of the event.

The second step is to apply for a visa (because Weibo was also included in the top 20 of many Thailand tours three years ago, the time was short, I didn’t have a passport, so I gave up the final competition and applied for a passport afterwards). I called the Thai Consulate in Shanghai. The formalities were a little annoying and the cost was 230 yuan. Adopting the opinions of netizens, Taobao found a reputable and many of our partners: the price was 244 yuan, and it was promised to be completed in a week, and Shunfeng postage. The material is very simple: one passport and two recent 2-inch photos. Out of prudence, I sent the materials to Xuhui Store and signed the contract.

I sent it on Friday, and the next Friday I received a call from customer service, saying that I had signed it and received the visa. It was another great excitement.

The third step is to book a hotel. I want to stay in Thailand for six nights, of which two nights are arranged by the Thai Travel Bureau and four nights must be booked by myself. At present, Youduo has no overseas post station, Therefore, I fixed my eyes on several major websites in China and felt that the prices were very high. As a big man, I didn’t pay much attention to it. I didn’t go for leisure and vacation, nor did I go for shopping and corruption. I was satisfied to be able to appreciate the strange scenery and humanities. I located my accommodation in the youth tour near Kaoshan Road, because the scenic spot I was going to was not far from it. Accidentally, I broke into Yagoda Agoda. After repeated comparisons, I booked a Swalin residence. The netizen’s evaluation was very good. First, it was 10 minutes away from Kaoshan Road and 20 minutes away from the Grand Palace, and it was quiet in the middle of the noise. Second, there is a little sister who works in China and can provide many conveniences. Third, the price is very cheap, more than 70 yuan a night, including breakfast! I chose four people, and when I booked it, I wondered why I didn’t fill in the gender information. Afterwards, it proved that I caught up with a world trend, a mixed residence of avant-garde fashion! I booked the first two nights of my arrival in Bangkok and the night before my departure here, and the result was very satisfactory! Jiami booked a youth tour for one night, which was very close to the official holiday hotel and cost more than 70 yuan.

The fourth step is to change the Thai baht. It is said on the Internet that you will go to the Bank of China to change this thing. A friend of her child has just returned from Thailand. She said ICBC can also do it and it is more cost-effective. One afternoon, I went to the nearby ICBC and changed to Thai baht without an appointment, because my figure was not large, I changed 6,000 Thai baht, and then I changed some at the ATM in Thailand.

Step 5: Fill in the draft entry and exit registration form. I downloaded a sample form of Thailand’s entry and exit registration form on the Internet, filled in the relevant items, and was prepared for danger. This preparation made it easy for me to go through customs. I didn’t ask anyone who didn’t know English (these three forms were given to you by the airport when I left the country. When I entered Thailand’s border inspection, I took the above two forms, stamped you with the exit registration card, and then booked them on your passport).

Now it is time that everything is ready and only the east wind is needed. In order to be familiar with some simple languages, I have installed two more softwares on my mobile phone. It is said that Wu Nong’s soft language, and Thai women’s pronunciation is even softer Mann, with endless lasting appeal, which has long drawn people to the country that makes people yearn for… Sometimes some English words that they cannot understand can also be translated properly.

Hua 50 yuan bought a Thai mobile phone card online, but my mobile phone is telecom, so I borrowed a mobile phone. During the seven days in Thailand, it was more than enough to make phone calls online.

The preparations are gradually ready and the heart is gradually steadfast. Unexpectedly, another yellow shirt army came out. CCTV’s rendering really made people nervous again! A few days before departure, smog was rampant in Shencheng and flights were delayed in large numbers. It was really a good thing! However, my heart has already calmed down at this time. A big man has nothing to fear. He just hopes that the weather will improve as soon as possible and take off normally.

Everything is developing in a good direction. At that time, the spring and autumn will be full of tourists flying to Bangkok.

When Bangkok was close to thousands of lights, I had a simple fast food at the airport and was ready to take a taxi to my destination. I was new here. It was safer and the cost could not be saved. The guide sign of Suwannabe Airport is Thai, English and Chinese, so without much effort, I came to TAXI and took out the order for Swalin residential buildings. According to the above address, the airport staff helped you contact your taxi driver. All the way was an elevated road, during which the driver asked me twice for money to pay tolls, once 25 baht and once 50 baht. From east to west, the car passed through almost the whole of Bangkok and came to the Swalin residential building in the small alley. The watch showed 470. I gave the driver 500. Instead of looking for it, he held out five fingers (tips). After giving 50, he repeatedly said OK. This taxi ride is the most expensive one in the whole trip, but in terms of conversion, it is only 120NMB, which is not expensive compared with Shanghai. There is a saying on the Internet that about 400 people can get to the city. I feel that the driver did not detour. When I asked others the next day, the price was about the same.

When I entered Swalin’s residential buildings, I saw my name on the whiteboard at a glance. In a foreign country, a warm current surged in my heart…

Swarin’s residential buildings are basically inhabited by foreigners, and there are very few Chinese. That night, my upper berth was a black man, and the upper and lower berths next door were an American couple. For the first time in such an environment, Inevitably feel embarrassed, But fortunately, I fell asleep early, Foreigners have all gone to Kaoshan Road for trouble. I got up early the next morning, but they were asleep. In addition, there was a soft barrier in front of the bed. Besides, foreigners could show good basic qualities on these occasions (drunken is another matter) and hid in the small shop to form a unified system, regardless of spring, summer, winter and autumn, IKEA bedding and quiet environment. They slept soundly for three nights.

Although the words are not clear, foreigners are generally very friendly and always take the initiative to greet you. The eyes are the windows of the heart and each other can reflect people’s sincerity.

This residential building is opened by Bangkok people. The front desk is a Chinese girl named Xiaomin, a former backpacker. When she came, she never left! With her, my trip to Bangkok saved me a lot of heart and money.

The next day, Xiao Min gave me a Chinese map, marking the locations of Kaoshan Road and the Grand Palace. With this map, I am not worried about what either. My sense of direction is still good! On this day, I walked for 10 kilometers and made a big crossing from ancient times to present…

Under the contact of Xiao Min, the trip on the third day was even more exciting. It took only 190B to appreciate the unique culture of Danonsado Aquatic Market, and it was a comfortable Toyota car pick-up (Bangkok’s mini buses are basically this kind of car). You know, Bangkok is nearly 100 kilometers away from there!

Bangkok Langman Airport

In the afternoon, the mini bus to Bangkok’s Langman Airport is also Xiaomin’s contact, 150B. By Jiami, it was completely dark. There are two bus routes at the airport, one to Jiami Town and the other to Onan Beach. The fare is 150B. As long as you say “Onan” here, they will understand. I only say “Onan” and “BB” here, and they parked their cars at the door of BB (actually the basement of Onan Bay Resort) (Onan Beach is a few kilometers away, and they deliver the guests one by one, which is commendable).

Holiday Inn Onan Beach

The next day I stayed at Holiday Inn Onan Beach and felt like I had gone from hell to heaven.

During the three days and nights in Jiamionan, I took three morning lights and two sunsets, perhaps the hanging eyes of God. The sunset on the last night was unforgettable all my life.

When returning to Bangkok from Jiami, the sun had not set. After leaving the airport, I have completely lost my reserve when I first arrived in Bangkok. I can have a leisurely experience of Bangkok’s public transportation. First, take A1 Airport Express to the light rail station in the downtown area, and then take N3 to Kaoshan Road. In the meantime, when asking for directions, just say “Kaoshan”. Everyone knows. Thais are very friendly. They will write you a small note for fear that you don’t understand. Everyone knows Arabic numerals. It took twice as long to get to Swaling, but the Thai baht only cost 36.5 B, saving money to eat a delicious fast food on the roadside.

On the last day, we have to say goodbye to Bangkok. It’s not far from the Monument to Democracy. I’d like to see it. Listen to Xiaomin’s introduction, don’t be nervous, you go and have a look, maybe there are still people in charge of food! As a result, this is really the case. The sit-in demonstrators are still there. The logistical support is very strong. There are food, drink, tents and mosquito nets, but there is no tension. This is really a cultural landscape that cannot be seen anywhere.

Goodbye, Swalin residential buildings, from the beginning to the end, it is you who have brought me to a satisfactory end in Thailand!

In a short period of one week, I stayed in the basement youth tour and enjoyed luxury hotels. I experienced the unique culture, appreciated the scenery of Jiami, and overfulfilled my itinerary (visited the demonstration site)!

From uneasy to full load, the first post station is the key! An illiterate trip to Thailand ended in the sunset at Bangkok’s Suwannabe Airport…
