A Visit to Thailand-Mr. LV

Today, I would like to talk about Mr. LV, one of our shopping guides on this trip to Thailand. Mr. LV is first and foremost a handsome young man, At the age of about 28 or 9 (I guess), People are lively and cheerful. I have been to Thailand for three times (if I remember correctly). I have reached a certain level of familiarity with Bangkok and Pattaya’s eating, living and playing. Therefore, I enthusiastically shared with us a lot of his Thai tour experiences along the way. What is delicious and fun, what must buy and so on, which is equivalent to half of our tour guide!

On the afternoon of our first day in Bangkok, we went directly to MBK, a department store in downtown Bangkok. The store has a total of 8 floors, ranging from delicious food, T-shirts and clothing, mobile phone accessories to supermarket hypermarkets and furniture. There are more than 2,000 stores in total, but most of them are cheap counters and some can bargain. Mr. LV left our first impression here. After everyone came back from a tour, what basically didn’t buy it either. First, he didn’t know he was short of what when he first arrived in Thailand. Second, he didn’t want to go back to buy what gifts. Besides, the luggage will get heavier and heavier after a week’s trip. However, Mr. LV is different. He has already received three shopping bags by this time, mostly Thai local products and dry goods, as well as some seasonings, shrimp sauce from what. When we looked at him in surprise, he also looked at us in surprise: what didn’t buy it either. The things here are so cheap. . Indeed, I have a preliminary understanding of Thailand’s commodity prices here, which are basically the same as the domestic price level, or slightly lower. For example, look at a flowery skirt I bought-199 Thai baht (about RMB 50 yuan), which is very cheap, isn’t it?

Coming out of the mall, we took a bus to the hotel where we stayed on the first day. While resting in the car, Mr LV suddenly said, “ah, I forgot to buy my Bangkok bag! Last time I bought dozens of them, it was not enough to go back. This time I will buy more. “We all sound surprised, what bag? So popular! Then Mr. LV began to introduce Bangkok bag to us all the way. The most repeated thing was that it was LV in the cloth bag. Ha ha, although he said all the way, we still had no impression after all, but we were more curious! Moreover, it was from this time on that we began to call him LV. . Therefore, this is how Mr. LV’s name came from! At that time, I didn’t expect Bangkok to lead our whole trip ~

After staying in the hotel, we went to Chinatown, a night market in Bangkok, at night. LV accompanied us because he was looking for Bangkok bags here. < img src= "/wp-content/uploads/648. Gif"/> Chinatown at night can only be described by the word “lively”, mostly roadside stalls (fruit stalls, bird’s nest stalls, shark’s fin stalls, snack stalls and other stalls). There are many foreigners here, smoking cigarettes, drinking beer, eating small cold dishes and looking at the beautiful women passing by. The feeling given to me is that they are very Thai. Ha ha, they seem to have integrated into the life here and enjoyed it! According to the tour guide, most of these foreigners come from Europe. They usually rent a cheap house here to live for one and a half months as a way of vacation. No wonder they are so unlike “tourists”. Mr. LV did not find the Bangkok bag he wanted, but he recommended us the famous snack of Chinatown-crystal sugar bird’s nest, which can be seen everywhere on both sides of Chinatown. One bowl can be bought at about the price of RMB 60 yuan, which is the cheapest bird’s nest in the world. We are all saying that the women living here are too happy to eat bird’s nest every day. No wonder the skin is so good! The price of snacks in Chinatown is not expensive, you can buy a hot snack for 20 beads! There are also all kinds of tropical fruits, which give people the feeling that they are delicious and cheap! It is suggested to eat these roadside stalls for dinner! Good choice.

On the second day in Bangkok, we went to the Grand Palace and had no time to shop. Mr LV also had no chance to buy Bangkok bags. At this time, everyone has already begun to look forward to seeing the Bangkok bag store and seeing what Bangkok bag looks like in what. Ha ha. Fortunately, LV told us that Bangkok bags are not necessarily available only in Bangkok. There are chain stores in Pattaya, Phuket and other places. It is a kind of cloth bag with exquisite workmanship, handbags of various sizes, cosmetic bags, etc. It is fashionable and beautiful, and the price can be cheap, so it is very popular with girls!

In the afternoon, we drove to Pattaya and stayed at the Wulan Hotel Resort. After dinner in the evening, we visited Pattaya’s famous seaside road. Night Charm Bati is a city with a completely different night market from Bangkok. On one side of the road are all kinds of bars, restaurants, hotels and shops, while on the other side is Pattaya Beach. The lights are brightly lit. Pairs of foreigners and Black Pearl (Thailand MM) walk leisurely, hug each other and flirt with each other, which has become another unique scenery on this street. Mr. LV walked alone after we returned to the hotel and finally bought his Bangkok bag. Unfortunately, we had already fallen asleep at that time, and we left separately on the next day’s trip, so we didn’t have a chance to see the Bangkok bag he bought.

In the next two days, Mr. LV played several golf games. We were also busy visiting scenic spots and never had a chance to go shopping. But at the moment, everyone’s expectation for Bangkok bags has reached the point where they must be bought! Not seeing one side, lifelong regret! We also discussed with the tour guide whether we could find time to visit NaRaYa’s Pattaya chain store. Fortunately, on the last day we sacrificed our last chance to have dinner and went to the Royal Garden Plaza in downtown Pattaya, which has a flagship store of NaRaYa. Legend has it that it has been a long time since I saw it all day long. It is indeed worthy of my name. Look at everyone’s shopping basket and you will know. Calculate it. The five of us bought a total of more than 40. Ha ha, not much, not much. When I came back, I said it was not enough. Speaking of which, the long-legendary Bangkok bag can make its debut ~

When meeting Mr. LV at the airport again, his luggage was packed with a large woven bag besides his luggage, which was full of his “shopping results” of the past few days. It seems that he swept a lot of goods. Wouldn’t it be a waste of time to come to Thailand and not buy more back? Why? Cheap! Ha ha, a man is so crazy shopping, it seems that Bangkok is a perfect shopping paradise is true, so I would like to remind friends who want to come to Thailand to bring a big suitcase when they come, or they will carry a woven bag to return home like Mr. LV.

Finally, I attach the true portrayal of–Mr LV’s shopping spree, the hero of this travel note! Ha ha

Tsunami Leaves Soul Phi Phi

Walking by the sea in the hotel garden that afternoon, I saw this small pavilion surrounded by gorgeous flowers and plants. It has characters and nameplates, and has the style of a Thai temple. On one side of the pavilion, there is a table serving fruits and flowers, a bottle of mineral water, and lampshades on each of the four columns. I think the lights are bright at night. In the bright tropical sunshine, I couldn’t help feeling cold. This is the trauma left on Phi Phi Island by the South Asian tsunami, and it is the altar for the dead to commemorate the victims of the tsunami on Phi Phi Island.

More than six years have passed, and people seem to have forgotten the disaster. The wounds have leveled the waves in the Indian Ocean, but are the wounds in their hearts still painful? Tourists from all over the world on Phi Phi Island come and go in a hurry, enjoying the blue sky, sunshine and sea with laughter. Few people will walk to this pavilion. I am lucky enough to be here. I stand silent and show my respect for both hands. I mourn to the tsunami dead of that year. Let’s rest forever.

Indonesia’s 9.0 magnitude earthquake at 7: 00 a.m. Bangkok time on December 26, 2004 was the fourth strongest earthquake recorded by human beings on earth. The tsunami caused more than 200,000 deaths, thousands of deaths on Phuket Island and 400 deaths on Phi Phi Island, known as Honeymoon Island, including 200 foreign tourists and Phi Phi Island, which was basically destroyed.

After returning to China, I searched some information on the Internet and compared the photos taken this time to better understand the destructive power of the Indian Ocean tsunami in South Asia.

The location of the memorial pavilion, which is the scene of the disaster relief a few days after the tsunami and the location where the photos of the dead foreigners are hung, clearly shows Lah-Dalum Bay.

Is this dead tree a tsunami relic?

Today’s beach cruise ships

Human beings cannot be careless in front of nature. Today, all the buildings on Phi Phi are filled high and built. The sand beach on the left in the following figure has laid solid concrete piles to prevent accidents before they occur.

Pattaya Night

Pattaya Night

After supper, it was already very dark. Pattaya beach is hazy, At first glance, it is only a dark piece, which is displayed there in a vast way, like mountains in the dark night. The dark faint blocks your view, making you unable to see how wide it is or how long it is. You can only feel the darkness very deep and far from the consciousness of understanding the sea. Even Superman’s heavenly eyes, wisdom eyes and law eyes cannot see the end.

At this time, the breathtaking blue sky inherent in the sea, White clouds, The green oases at the junction of the sky and the sea, The vast and boundless blue and clear sea water and the chirping of some flying seabirds have quietly retreated to the back of the deep darkness and changed into a quiet and delicate scenery. The color of the sea water has also changed into dark green like chameleon, shining with the lights along the coast and sparkling, appearing extremely mysterious and beautiful.

The lights of the Long Beach Street were shining continuously and densely, red, yellow, white and blue, shining from the tall buildings, from the roadsides, from the coconut and palm trees, from the cabin-like bars, and sprinkling on the sea and sand. There are not many people on the beach. Besides people, there are also some colorful dogs playing with the beach and sea water. The dogs on the beach spread out in pairs of three and three, walking leisurely like people.

Some people say, “Pattaya, you don’t know the darkness of night during the day”. Indeed, the place that best embodies this sentence is Pattaya Pedestrian Street, which is located in the long seaside street. In the evening, all kinds of adult performances here are bizarre, and all kinds of chicken, duck and goose shops add radiance to each other. The whole pedestrian street is brightly lit, just like the Milky Way Xinghai. Tourists from all over the world rub their shoulders and heels, and they do not know how to return.

The transvestite is one of Pattaya’s characteristics. When American soldiers found that there were too few women on this beautiful beach, the transvestite came into being. Strangely, corresponding to the beautiful transvestite, Thailand’s ugliest women are all concentrated here, with black skin, concave nose bridge, thick lips and short stature. They are too ugly to bear to see more.

But these ugly women, Europeans and Americans are extremely fond of it. They think that they are full of wild beauty and their shiny skin is full of temptation. They are just like the “golden cat” who starts to arrest people. It is too attractive. It is not surprising that a foreigner in the street who is tall and full of superiority often follows a local woman who shows her big teeth with a short smile.

The pedestrian street is full of restaurants, open-air bars and small stalls selling clothes. The bars here are different from Bangkok in that there are no walls or doors, only cheap beer, bronze-colored bar women and the uneasy and turbulent air inherent in the tropics. Sometimes there are expired transvestites who make guest singing and dancing here, or singers with long hair and a little resemblance to power trains who sing and take photos of them. They will also shake their hands and POSE happily.

Some neatly dressed “Thai sisters” with long shoulder-length hair stood or sat by the door of the store, gazing amiably at every target that could be caught in the past. There are many street stops soliciting customers, most of whom are holding a sign with their “service price” written on it. Some of them are gorgeous, some are hot and some are gentle, making all the people who pass by feel the temptation of “* *” here.

The band was accompanied, the singer was singing, and the girls were dancing on the bar. The bar was almost full of people, men, women and children. Each person has a drink. If he is happy, he can also sing a song and ask the band to accompany him. Some foreign girls, happy, also jumped onto the bar to dance a song. Fully degenerate, without any worries.

There are colorful neon lights everywhere, deafening music everywhere, exposed girls everywhere, and foreigners everywhere for fun. This is Pattaya’s night. It is difficult to distinguish which is the real Thailand. Day and night are completely two worlds. Ha ha, heaven and hell are all on earth.

Walking along the street to the dim lights, a Russian bar appeared. I looked at the words written on the wall and still vaguely understood them. He went in. The boss is Russian. As the number of Russian tourists gradually increased, they came here to open a bar with many guests every day. I listened to Russian songs accompanied by guitar or accordion, deja vu and felt a little nostalgic.

Foreigners come to Pattaya to perform and open bars, which should still be relatively rare. On the one hand, this shows that Thailand’s tourism industry is developing relatively well and foreigners can make money here. On the other hand, it shows that the economic recession in Europe is still relatively obvious, especially in Eastern Europe. Otherwise, with the arrogance of Europeans, I think I would definitely not like to come to the East to perform arts.

At midnight, the bustling streets became more boiling. People gradually entered a semi-crazy state. Even some old people with all white hair stood up and danced, singing and dancing. Large glasses of beer with foam splashed on the bar counter, on the table, on clothes and on the carpet, and a lot of money flowed into the bar counter.

The slogan of Pattaya City Government’s advertisement is: “Pattaya will never sleep. For you, she is the best tourist destination. “It is said that more than 3 million tourists gather in Pattaya every year. When these tourists watch the wonderful performance of the transvestite on the Oriental Princess, and when these tourists enter the bustling streets, no one is intoxicated, stimulated or even at a loss by this charming night in Pattaya…….

If you come, it will be a harvest: love in pai city, Chiang Mai, Thailand, pai in love

Is there a small town in your heart to think about, will let your body not move, heart is far away; Has arrived, but lingering. People of all ages like to linger there. That should be Chiang Mai, a beautiful small town in northern Thailand. As Teresa Teng sings in “The Story of a Small Town,” if you come to a small town, you will gain a lot.

How many times in my dreams are pictures of travel? A few years ago, I heard of Chiang Mai and knew that it was the ancient historical and cultural capital of Thailand, just like Mandalay in Myanmar, Yogyakarta in Indonesia, Siem Reap in Cambodia… So I grew dense grass on it.

I don’t know that Chiang Mai was how a few years ago, but now it seems to me that I am late. The development inside and outside the ancient city has given me the illusion that I am on the mountain road near Bangkok several times. So I found PAI (Bai), a mountain city-PAI in Chiang Mai, Thailand, is a small town mainly for leisure and vacation. There is no cultural precipitation, just leisurely reading and drinking. PAI is what I like about Thailand. There are not many people, the roads are not dirty, the people are not bad, and the roads are not crowded. The town is very small, you can ride your bicycle to the suburbs by accident. Vacation houses inside and outside the county seat are widely distributed. Each hotel has its own personality. All vendors can speak simple English. The mountain city and the environmental conditions inside the body present a visual feast every day.

In Thai, it is called “Bai”. It is a small town in a dense jungle surrounded by rolling mountains. It does not have the prosperity and noise of Chiang Mai, but it has the fresh air, oily green countryside and beautiful hills that Chiang Mai does not have.

Chiang Mai is about 130 kilometers away from PAI. In fact, the transportation from Chiang Mai to PAI is very mature. As long as you say you want to go to PAI in Chiang Mai, there are hotel agents everywhere:

1. Small planes: There are regular flights every week, which will arrive in more than 300 RMB and half an hour. The advantage is to avoid three hours of dense turning mountain roads.

2. Minibus: The frequency is very dense, from Chiang Mai to PAI (180B, which is generally priced at 200B/person near the ancient city); PAI Return to Chiang Mai (150B/person)

3. Village buses whose stations are not closed: It is very cheap. It is said that 79B/person. I wonder if there is any price increase.

4. Yao Tuo Che: This is a way to burn in the years. After driving, you can return it directly to Aya Service, which is Minibus’s site.

If poor travelers dig up and abandon the plane first, choose Minibus to benefit them from coming and returning, both will pick up and return them according to your residence. There are many friends who want to try their best to explore PAI’s environment and go back and forth one day. I tell you, don’t hesitate, just spend your time here!

IMG_3777-1

PAI’s residences are widely distributed and need not be booked. Unless you have a special liking for a vacation house, you have to live there. After basically traveling around PAI, I want to spend a year living in every vacation house here. The decoration of the shop is always warm and surprising. It is convenient to live near the main street. The vacation across the river behind the main street has high cost performance and beautiful environment. The scenery far away from the main street and near the outskirts of the hot spring is more natural and pleasant, and those who easily own swimming pools and single houses are also returned between 350 and 500B..

This time we lived in a single-family hut in 30 yuan/day, crossing the river district, and also moved into Marpi Holiday House, which is the main theme of fairy tales beside Coffe in Love, in order to truly and happily experience PAI’s quiet personality, which is indisputable with the world, in managing its own small county characteristics attentively.

After tossing and turning for 3 hours on the mountain road, I was unable to find accommodation from house to house. After getting off the bus, I was taken to this holiday house across the river by the little fat man. Above was a 400B single house with air conditioning, and below was our 150B single house with fans. Although the bed inside was a little old, I was satisfied with such an environment. This vacation house is called Pai Park! In the last place in the river crossing area, in fact, there is a Lana architectural style holiday house on the other side of the river where we do not have to cross the river. The room is spacious and clean, 450B/day.

As far as I was concerned, the sky was extremely clear. I put my tiredness behind me. I went to pat the sky material and sat outside my residence and suddenly saw a wonder in the distance: the scene of Jesus’ light or rain was empty. I couldn’t tell it apart. I shouted at Little T to come out. After he ran out, he jumped for joy and pressed the door frantically. We also knew that this natural phenomenon was so fast and passed away. Will stepping into this light beam send me to heaven?

Our residence is quite lovely, with uncarved flowers, plants and fruit trees all over it. A bridge built of bamboo rafts feels a little scared when I walk up and wander at the beginning, but I also think of the scene when the heroine of “The Little Thing of First Love” sits in this bridge.

Fairy Tale Theme Resort: Marpi is beside (coffee in love). The decoration is careful and the gardening is regularly revised. You will find that the window grilles and knickknacks in the room and even the toilet are all professional people. The room is full of refrigerators, televisions and air conditioners. The environment is comfortable and clean. Opening the curtains is the beautiful scenery of the mountain stream. When we moved in, a group of graduates and tourists were leaving, so the rest of the time and space were left to our extravagance.

There are three cabin options,

1. Large single house with round spire: 900B

2. Small single house: 600B

3. The appearance of the travel and living car is single house: 600B

There is a scene of light pillar in PAI PARK, and there is also a big tree leading to heaven here. It seems that heaven and earth are so close.

Nordic gardening let’s revel in it again, boast again and be wanton. Don’t miss the corner of this resort!

Every girl will expect to live in Andersen’s fairy tales. When the dream picture lives in front of her eyes, can you not cover up the excitement of this little girl?

This yellow hut was built for the Thai movie “Pai in Love”. Above the yellow hut and cafe Coffee in Love are open cafes and below are pastures, which show a Nordic style. However, it did not become a tourist charging point at that time. Flower farmers took good care of gardening. Tourists read books, drink coffee and eat cakes on the balcony of the cafe. Many years later, people do not know where to go, but the sunshine is still the same, Pai District is still the same, and people’s admiration and visit add some legends and poetry.

Hong Kong Wireless TVB’s recent variety show “Happy Map” Wang Zulan Thailand also takes a lot of scenery here. The beautiful scenery is out of the question. The dessert here is the best to eat. However, it is recommended to taste delicious and rich carefully and vomit blood! And the price is affordable. Before I left, I came here again.

During World War II, the iron bridge built by the Japanese still stands firm after many years. To a certain extent, it is also for everyone to witness and not forget this period of history.

Tha Pai Hot Spring: Natural Hot Springs and Forest Park Location-Find Hot Springs in Tha Pai Hot Spring, However, the conductor of the Forest Park asked us to buy tickets to enter the small hot spring just outside the door (thus meeting the Belgian photographer and his girlfriend for the first time). This is the first time I have been so close to the hot spring eye. The temperature is quite high. People can’t just soak in the water. The staff just put eggs in the hot spring and invited us one by one. It’s delicious!

Tickets for forest park: 200B/tourists and 20B for local people. In fact, compared with domestic tickets, they are not expensive either. PAI has many places to play. Here we just want to take photos.

A small clip of “Happy Map”.

Overlooking the mountain

PAI is full of mountains and hills, and people cultivate and raise them on this land.

Chinese Village: Chinese Village, this is literal translation. In fact, the local name is “Nanhu Mountain Village”. If you go to look for waterfalls, you will pass by. A group of Chinese Hakkas live in groups. Chinese and Chinese are everywhere. People generally speak Chinese. Some Chinese hostels have also been built. But that kind of Chinese scenic spot flavor is quite strong.

Play wherever you go and shake hands with elephants!

PAI is full of happy colors that make people feel relaxed, and even the post office is so loving.

PAI is a paradise for hippies and a paradise for dreamers! Little fresh life, romantic and unruly.

This picture wants to tell you that PAI’s mountain roads are high and low. They often see their hands and feet wrapped in PAI. They should be injured when driving a motorcycle to swim in PAI, but it does not affect their emotions at all. The kind of high-spirited spirit is directly reflected on their faces!

山城天气就像女人的心情,飘忽不定,阳光穿透大家的生活,格外和谐美好。

Thai barbecue has almost become our staple food every day. It is delicious and inexpensive!

This brother is selling his scented tea, herbal tea, sugarcane sweat, sweet tea, etc. in bamboo tubes. Can buy blindly, can also mix, always under his mixed taste is fragrant and honest, later saw “happy map” also filmed him, from the program saw the street, eat meal shop, have a kind of inexplicable touched.

Exiled souls linger here! This is a “Captain Jack” with a story. I believe every friend who has been to PAI has seen him. He has been here for seven years and usually drives his little blue beetle at night. He dressed up and sells postcards that he directed, acted and took selfies. He is a master of selfies. The pictures have stories and pay attention to light and shadow. You should also go and see his photography creation if you don’t buy them.

There are also creation and commerce in our photography circle. I am sure this is creation.

The night before I left, We went to a bar with live music, He found out that he had met the couple for the third time. The first time we arrived outside the hot spring gate, the second time we went to the waterfall, and the third time we went here. The man was a Belgian photographer who was unruly and free in his bones. According to their description, he resolutely left everything to travel when he was 23 years old. After many years, he entered Myanmar twice and met this girlfriend in Mandalay. When he heard that we were going to leave for Phuket, he happily suggested to us that our friends in Phuket could borrow sailing boats for us to go to sea. From Phuket to Jiami Strait, they shuttled back and forth between the zero-noise islands to embrace sunrise and sunset. They stayed in Phuket for several years like this. What a plot like “No Country for Old Men”! However, a realistic problem is that we will not sail a sailing boat, so we failed to live up to this opportunity. They had to shrug their shoulders and see that Belgian photographers’ picture blogs are mainly humanities, mainly their records of visiting some countries. The decisive moment of the picture and the atmosphere texture can show his basic skills. When we exchanged photos, when asked about his on-hook configuration, we cleverly asked: Canon? Nikon? Sony? Pentx? He kept shaking his head: NO! Leica! But now I don’t do commercial photography. I can see from his eyes that kind of indifferent attitude towards life style. I look up at this attitude, but I am also quite rational. When I returned to McDonald’s in Chiang Mai, I said to Little T: It is not good to have too many people like Belgian photographers in the world. He said: Well, yes! There should be some poor people and some people like us who create productivity to balance the world. .

The night market in Chiang Mai made me trance to the mountain road, near the ImperialMae PingHotel, where I visited a wide range of places! Recommended PAI is more personalized and affordable than the things in the night market here!

I will come to Chiang Mai again when I have the time and the chance!

The City that Never Sleeps-Thailand’s Chinatown

Where there are people, there are Chinese, Where there are Chinese, there will be a Chinatown. The same sentence also works in Thailand, There is also a Chinatown in Thailand, I wanted to finish dinner and visit Chinatown quickly. But he heard Peter say, Don’t worry, Chinatown is more and more lively as it gets late. It is a street that does not last night. In Thailand, the real money is still the Chinese. The diligence and hard work of the Chinese are clearly reflected in Thailand, but the Chinese have also been well accommodated in life in Thailand. Take him as an example. His family has been in Thailand for three generations. He himself has married a Thai woman. He has never been to China. When he talks about Thailand, he can feel that he regards Thailand as his real home. He understands the culture there and is completely a Thai way of life.

At nine or ten o’clock in the evening, We came to Chinatown in Thailand, Facing us is a string of red lanterns with Chinese characteristics. You seem to have come to China in the 40s and 50s. Shop signs everywhere are basically marked with Thai and Chinese characters, Chinese-based, At the same time, the noise is fully reflected here. The whole street is dominated by stalls, and lampblack also fills the street. Chestnuts are fried with sugar fried by machines, and 300 large bowls and 200 small bowls of bird’s nest are hung everywhere. In China, bird’s nest is worth 100 times as much as that of expensive people, but it is reduced to snacks on stalls here. I can’t believe the cheap ones. Unfortunately, I was too full for dinner and really had no stomach to hold it.

There are stalls and hawkers on both sides of the road, and the cars are still speeding in the middle that are not affected, and the diners sitting on the side of the road are not affected by those cars. Your mind will pop out: Is there a chengguan here? Can anyone manage this street? It’s hard to imagine in our city, There was so much noise on the roadside, Peter said that if you could speak Chaozhou dialect, There is no problem communicating here, Many of the Chinese in Thailand are Chaozhou people who went to make a living. They grew up here from generation to generation, In fact, Putonghua there is still very difficult to communicate. When we bought pomegranate juice, the peddler he met suddenly popped up while watching our discussion. Hello, let us be delighted. In fact, he can only simply tell us how much this pomegranate juice costs per bottle, and in-depth dialogue will not work. He can only look at us with a smile.

I followed “LV” into a shop selling meat floss. Shopkeepers still talk in Mandarin. You can taste the food in their shops. If you feel satisfied and buy it, if you don’t like it, the owners won’t take pains to introduce it to you. These shops look like old shops. It will say how many years they have been operating. These shops feel like old shops in Hong Kong. However, due to the language barrier, I did not have much desire to buy (this “LV” is a handsome boy from Yangzhou, He publicized Thai cloth bags with us from the moment he got off the plane to the moment he returned home and boarded the plane. It was said that the cloth bag was the “LV” in the cloth bag. Because of his vigorous publicity, we bought a batch of “LV” cloth bags before we came back. At the same time, he visited Thailand three times and learned about every different snack in Thailand. He almost bought a batch of Thai characteristics in a sack and returned home. It was also a pity during my trip that he did not follow his purchase.)

Chinatown has its own hubbub and clutter. But the peddlers in Chinatown have different expressions, Each runs his own life, We once stopped in front of a beautiful durian woman for half a day. Looking at her skin, she was surprised and collectively gave her the name of “durian Xi Shi”. In our discussion, durian Xi Shi always opened durian and sold durian according to her steps, with a faint smile on her face. She was not upset by our impoliteness or delighted by our praise. However, the people on the side will come and talk a few words because we are surprised to understand Chinese, and some will give a bright smile even if they do not understand the language.

When we left, Chinatown is still full of voices, Darkness has lost its role here. It is still brightly lit here. We have left, but we are passers-by. Although we are Chinese, more of them are Chinese with Thailand as their home. They live in foreign countries and stick to a cultural custom of their own country, but they also accept the cultural custom of their own land. Thailand’s Chinatown is a city that never sleeps and a blend of the two cultures.

Write some words and take some photos to commemorate my slow life in Chiang Mai for one month.

As a professional travel agency TOUR LEADER, not only because of work to frequent Thailand, in my 8 years of backpacking travel career,

Thailand is also a very important country. I have changed three or four passports. One third of the visa countries are Thailand. Of course, Thailand is the most suitable country for me to stay.

However, I am in love with Chiang Mai, a small town in northern Thailand. In recent years, I have to go to Chiang Mai several times a year, either working or traveling. I am a very lazy person, every long trip

When I came back from the trip, many friends asked me to give me a strategy, but I was too lazy to write every time and occasionally sorted out my feelings during the trip.

But this time I decided that I wanted to leave some what for my one-month slow life in Chiang Mai, and I also hoped that I could bring it to my friends who had not yet gone to Chiang Mai.

Something different. Now I have completely given up the what Restaurant recommended by what Raiders, which is full of Chinese tourists.

Place gives me a headache. This time, because I met all kinds of friends in Chiang Mai, I learned about the weekend second-hand market, ONE TOUR, which tourists seldom go to.

Not to go to the black temple, as well as various English schools and investment in Chiang Mai to buy information.

Never wrote travel notes, So I also don’t know how to write standard travel notes, I hope everyone will understand my freedom and laxity. Think of what to write about what. Many friends asked me, why do you like Chiang Mai in so many beautiful places in Thailand? Is it just because of the beautiful climate? I really didn’t know why I like Chiang Mai what before, but now I really understand why I like it, because I like the lovely people here, so I fall in love with it.

Flight:

There are not many direct flights from Shanghai to Chiang Mai. Jixiang Airlines and Eastern Airlines have direct flights.

If you choose cheap airlines, Asian Airlines and Spring Airlines, Asian Airlines can fly from Shanghai to Macao, Macao to Chiang Mai or Shanghai to Hong Kong and Hong Kong to Chiang Mai.

In addition, after February 21, AirAsia will open direct flights from Hangzhou to Chiang Mai.

And this time I took Chunqiu Airlines, Shanghai-Bangkok, Bangkok-BUS (NCA) Chiang Mai

There are many flights to Chiang Mai in Bangkok, and there are also many traffic. Thailand’s domestic low-cost airlines include not only AirAsia but also Bird Airlines, which is very cheap to catch up with the promotion.

RMB, of course you can also choose the train, but it is often delayed, the air conditioner is very cold at night, and it is also bumpy, suitable for people who have a lot of time to swim slowly.

And now I basically choose to do NCA bus, to Chiang Mai for 8-9 hours, if you don’t need VIP seats, then it’s not too big to buy tickets that day.

Problem, I am basically GOLDE CLASS, the fare is about 120 RMB, the car will send water, snacks and food, the service is good to explode, the car also has

WC, vip seats have game console, LCD screen, chair with massage function, but vip position is very popular, it is best to book half a month to a month in advance.

It’s worth experiencing.

Transportation from Airport to Ancient City:

According to the instructions to enter the country, the entry staff can now speak basic Chinese, so there is no need to worry about poor English. After coming out, there will be

TAXI sign, and then tell the staff where you live in Chiang Mai, the staff will write a song list for you, and the vehicle can choose.

If you have more people or luggage, you can choose SUV with a price of 150B. Of course, you can also come out to find TUTU or put together two strips. TUTU100B or so.

However, it is recommended to take a taxi directly.

Traffic from NCA Station or Aka Bus Terminal to Gucheng:

Basically is double, if package double 100B or so, if SHARE double basic 40-50B, TUTU see you bargain level is average

100B

Ancient city traffic:

As long as you go anywhere in Chiang Mai ancient city, the two lanes are 20B. Stop the two lanes and ask the driver if you can’t get to the place you go. Get off and give it to 20B.

One person can do it

Chiang Mai Accommodation;

There are a lot of accommodation in Chiang Mai, with various prices. If you like the ancient city, you can live in the ancient city. If you don’t like the ancient city, Ningman Road and Peace River

Both sides are good choices, and this time I stayed in Chiang Mai for 35 days and lived in three places, two GUEST HOUSE and one rented respectively.

Month house, but according to my experience, no matter where you live, please consider the quietness of the accommodation. Nowadays, more and more tourists are traveling to Chiang Mai.

There are many people and cars. Chiang Mai is full of motorcycles. The sound can really keep you awake at night. The hotel in the quiet alley is mine.

Two choices.

This is GUESTHOUSE, where my second family lives. It is quiet and comfortable. There is a beautiful courtyard in a small alley. It is ranked in the top 6 in HOSTLEWORLD. It is old.

Outside more, the boss is very enthusiastic, although the room is simple but quite clean, the room is cleaned twice a day, and the toilet is also quite clean.

Washing clothes 40B/KG, I live in DORM a bed about 30 RMB

I don’t know the reason of what, the picture capacity exceeds the limit and I can’t send the picture. This time I didn’t bother to do post-processing for the picture because I took many films.

Change to small size, is the original picture hair film, have know the kiss, please tell me how to deal with

After finishing the English school course in the following month, I went to rent a house. Most of the apartments in Chiang Mai are located in KAD on HUAY KAEW Road.

SUAN KAEW is near the mall, because there are several 7-11 houses with convenient life, and there is a TOP MARKET, which has apartments from 3500B a month.

To 25000B, but many apartments need to be rented for 3 or 6 months, and the rent for one month is relatively higher, of course along this line.

There are also many apartments near Chiang Mai University on the road. Many foreigners rent houses near shopping malls because foreigners have long holidays.

Of course, there are many Chinese like me who take English courses. There are supermarkets and food courts on the lower floor of this shopping mall. The food is cheap and delicious.

I am a semi-vegetarian person. I like GREEN SALA in the supermarket best. 30B is cheap, delicious and sufficient. The taste of lettuce with good raw materials cannot be compared in China.

In addition, when we are all eating genetically modified foods, Thailand does not allow genetically modified products.

Chiang Mai Market:

Many friends who have been to Chiang Mai know Saturday market and Sunday market, There are lots of cheap things in the market these two nights. There are a lot of delicious snacks, but in recent years I feel that these two markets are not as good as before. Good young people design fewer and fewer things. The prices of goods and goods are also rising every year. It is very difficult for me to find anything interesting when I visit these two markets now. In fact, I am a person who seldom goes shopping at home or abroad. I am very interested in clothes and bags, and I don’t know much about famous brands. I also get the so-called awareness of some famous brands because I help my friends or girlfriends bring things when I work. However, every time I go out to travel, the market, the market and the school, I have to look at them.

In a chat with my friend Bema in Chiang Mai, I learned about this flea market, which only sets up stalls on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The market is far from the old city near the Royal College. From the ancient city seat double 40B, In the end, the driver did not know this place and asked many people to get there. This is a place that makes me crazy. I can see my favorite small objects here in recent years. I went there three times in my last week in Chiang Mai. It is hard to say exactly what attracted me so much. For me, what I enjoyed buying second-hand things was the story behind it. I would like to share two stories with you.

The first story: about love and time

Because this market is rarely known to tourists, Face of China can hardly be seen, So when I appeared in the market for the third time, all the stores said to me in a friendly way, hello or Sowatika, When I appeared in front of this Thai doll with different styles, the store owner was an elegant Thai mother with exquisite makeup. I like to tell me that the five dolls are 30 years old and are birthday gifts from her grandmother when she was a child. I have been with her for 30 years. “That is very precious to you. Why do you want to sell her?” I asked. “Grandma has been thinking of her for a long time after her death. I hope to sell these five dolls to the people in Butong so that they can know the story of my grandmother and my miss and love for her. I think it is very meaningful to commemorate her in this way.” After listening to her, whether it is true or false, even for this story, I am worth taking one of them.

The Second Story: About Coffee and Music

When I was wandering around this market for the first time, I was suddenly attracted by the aroma of coffee. I was a person who loved coffee very much. Behind me came a song praising me for SO BEAUTIFUL. I smiled at him and said THANGK YOU just passed by. When I came to the market for the second time, He greeted me gracefully and said I REMEMBER YOU, After taking a seat, he personally made coffee and invited me to drink coffee. While I was drinking coffee, he played and sang on his guitar. In small talk, I knew his name was YUTHASART B, and there was a country music band composed of four old men, named CHING MAI COUNTRY MUSIC STROLLER, who sang in a hotel by the Ping River every night. On weekends, he came to the market to let everyone enjoy his coffee and music. Drinking coffee and listening to music, my heart is warm, and I like to do pure things like this. In a materialistic country, everyone is so impetuous. I am also very glad that I can like and persist in my work and devote myself to it.

Chiang Mai Thousand People’s Hotpot

Before coming to Chiang Mai, I saw other people’s strategies on the Internet saying that Chiang Mai’s 1,000-person hot pot was good and worth a try. Therefore, during the trip, I wanted to arrange a night to see the 1,000-person hot pot. It happened that today coincided with Saturday, which happened to be the weekly Saturday night market. After weighing up the opportunity to go to the Saturday night market, I chose to taste the 1,000-person hot pot, thinking that the Sunday weekend night market must not be missed.

We found the owner of the travel agency where we booked tomorrow’s trip and asked her to help us write the address of the hotpot for thousands of people in Thai. We took the small note she wrote to us and found a doodle car that took 70B to send us to this place, which is in the northern suburb of Chiang Mai City, some distance from the city center. When we arrived, we saw several hotpot restaurants of the same size next to a long street. The driver of the doodle car who pulled us here didn’t come here very much, and it was not clear which one was better, but he was very enthusiastic to help us ask the local people and took us to the hotpot restaurant.

When we went, it was still early. Only one table of guests had just arrived on the eldest brother’s field. The boss leaned against his chair and looked at the TV on the big screen on the wall.

The sign reads 128B for each person. Most of the 1,000-person hotpot restaurant in the suburbs is eaten by local people. There are not many foreign tourists. There is only one waiter here who can speak simple English. This is not very convenient, but it is nothing. Anyway, the buffet does not need to order other dishes. Everything except beer is free.

We didn’t have dinner early

There are many varieties

Similar to our sauce, there are three different ingredients, one of which I can’t stand, and the other two are not as delicious as our traditional sesame sauce, ha ha. Can’t do as the Romans do, can only make do.

Ingredients

It’s all ready

The meal is about to open.

This is placed on every table. It can be baked and rinsed.

All kinds of vegetables

All kinds of meat

Self-service

Come back after eating

Don’t take more

Several cold dishes

Mineral water and fruit juice are free, beer is not free.

Send a basin of ice to each table.

The lively hot pot for thousands of people

The lively hot pot for thousands of people

The lively hot pot for thousands of people

After eating hot pot, I can’t find a taxi and stroll in the streets.

[Thai Happiness] Phuket’s Wedding Photos Return from Deep Tour ~ Super Many Wedding Photos PP ~ (Continuously Updated)

It has been a long time since I paid attention to 51 families. I first paid attention to the follow-up, make-up and follow-up of 51 wedding follow-up shops. Later, I found that his family also had wedding photos. It has developed in an all-round way. Mighty! ! Dragging up her husband’s original intention to set up a wedding photo set around Chengdu in one day, she was killed directly by a big poster of Phuket’s seaside sunset. Then she asked about the price of Phuket’s photo, which was too awesome. It was lower than that of Chengdu’s local photo. She was free of the staff’s air ticket and accommodation sharing fee, and the original film was sent to the driver for free. She also chartered a car and oil bag. It’s too attractive. Although their family doesn’t send photo albums Lamy, their husband said that those books are floating clouds. Photos are the most important. Because of the limited number of places, they decided decisively to change the location and go to PHUKET to play with his family. Because it was the first set to go abroad or to travel freely, my husband and I were still very uneasy at first. Which one called us both English blind? Thanks to Coke, we have prepared a super-tough Phuket travel strategy. People have already been to Phuket in 2010 to step on the spot in depth. I went there to take pictures of several groups of guests. I have covered food, clothing, housing, transportation and play, and I am qualified to publish a book. I have basically thought of all kinds of problems that may be encountered and how to solve them from the beginning. Thank you very much for your coke children’s shoes. I took the trouble. to be escorted by the “kit” given by coke. We are very relieved. The modeling is done by water and water. My request is simple and natural, to avoid studios and not to be too fancy. Water always knows my thoughts completely, Praise one! ! Photography is led by his uncle 51 and has a strong lineup. Uncle 51 belongs to a wise star. Basically, in Phuket, there is nothing he does not know. It was not until Uncle 51 that you knew what a “deep tour” was called Husband said that he could pretend to be a local in Phuket. Mo’s problem was…. I think their family’s high cost performance is definitely related to their good cost control. Fat G belongs to man show type, Wahaha haha haha, the whole shooting was hard for everyone, Neither of us can POSE. Uncle 51 gave full play to his strong points in snapshot. He took it while playing. It was easy and felt very natural. Also, wedding dresses were specially purchased for Phuket shooting, styles were dim-eyed. and their underwater professional equipment, pull boom oh, but my husband and I were landlubbers and did not dare to try. Later, I saw other people’s underwater fantasy and regretted it a little,

The Different Elegance of the Grand Palace

The Different Elegance of the Grand Palace

The tour bus was parked on a narrow street. I saw several pointed roofs on the white wall and a small door not much bigger than the ordinary gate. I really couldn’t believe this was Thailand’s Grand Palace. There is no dignity in front of Beijing’s Forbidden City, no luxury in front of Paris’s Versailles Palace, and no magnificence in front of Vienna’s Meiquan Palace. Is it famous all over the world just because it is Thailand’s political and cultural center and the seat of the Privy Council, the Ministry of Finance and the Palace Affairs Office?

There are rules for entering the grand palace: no sleeveless jacket, no short skirt on the knee, no loud noise, no photos in the jade Buddha temple, no……. We joined the crowded * * and began to visit. When checking tickets, you should check your clothes. Those who fail can rent clothes. Fortunately, we got the tour guide’s attention in advance, and no one was embarrassed about it. On the left side of the door was an open hall, and a armed guard looked coldly at the crowd. The guns on the steel frame are eyeing up, which makes me, who touched the guns since I was a child, somewhat frightened. In the green grass-shaded palace courtyard, the Bodhi tree exudes the breath of holiness. The unknown little flowers swayed in the wind and set each other off with the little girls playing in the lawn. Steel guns and flowers, guards and girls, indifference and gentleness, these diametrically opposite factors constitute my first impression of the Grand Palace.

The sun near noon brightened my eyes. When I put on sunglasses and opened my eyes, I found that what brightened my eyes was not the sunshine, but the resplendent and magnificent buildings in the courtyard. Completely different from the simplicity in front of the door, the whole palace is surrounded by strong gold. Sharp gold roofs, high gold colonnades, gold sculptures and gold murals. I seemed to walk into a gold mine, surrounded by gold. I feel as if all the gold in the world is concentrated in the palace, and the description of “Curse of the Golden Flower” is not too much here.

Jade Buddha Temple is the largest temple in Thailand, also known as “Guguo Temple”. We took off our shoes on the shoe rack under the steps and entered barefoot. There are Jade Buddha Hall, First King Hall, Buddha Bone Hall, Sutra Depository, Bell Tower, Urn Pagoda and other buildings in the temple. They are towering and straight, and focus on the characteristics of Thai Buddhist temple architectural art. The hall of the Jade Buddha Hall is tall, and a jade Buddha carved from a piece of emerald jade is enshrined on the 11-meter-high decorative box ritual stage inside the hall. The Buddha is 66cm high and 48cm wide. It sits cross-legged and has a solemn statue. Its exquisite sculpture can be called one of the world’s best. When the season changes, the king holds a grand ceremony to change clothes for the Jade Buddha with his own hands to protect the peace of the country and the people. We looked at the photos shown by the tour guide. Jade Buddha showed his shoulders in hot season, one shoulder in rainy season and priceless gold wisp clothes all over his body in cool season. This jade Buddha is regarded by Thais as a “treasure of the town” and photographing is strictly prohibited. Many good men and women in the temple bowed down, and I also respectfully folded my hands to express my respect and awe.

The layout of the palaces in the Grand Palace is very compact and exquisite everywhere. I kept taking pictures with my camera, only to find it difficult to take the overall elegant demeanour. Looking around, all kinds of tourists attracted my attention. Take a group of small photos of foreign tourists to show the unique style of the Grand Palace from another angle. Graceful blondes, rough and tough middle-aged strong men, rich and peaceful fat aunts, shy and timid young beauties… People gathered in this magnificent palace from different countries, different cultural backgrounds and different origins. Not only is it Thailand’s political and cultural center, but also because the Grand Palace is a symbol of the Thai dynasty. It records Thailand’s long history and culture and is a treasure of architecture, painting, sculpture and decoration. It is hard to say that you know Thailand without carefully and seriously understanding the Grand Palace.

I really can’t remember the tour guide’s complicated explanation, and I haven’t been able to distinguish between the king and the princess and prince who live in what. I just admired the beautiful, exquisite and luxurious buildings all the way, leaving exclamation marks in this unforgettable gold…….

The Unique Scenery of Koh Samet Island

The Unique Scenery of Koh Samet Island

Headline: If Pattaya is compared to a charming * * with various amorous feelings and full of temptations, then Sammy Island is seed of love’s charming and shy first-time bride.

After leaving Pattaya by speedboat, we went to Sammy Island, Thailand’s long-cherished third largest island. The moist sea breeze has blown away the intense heat of these days and the hustle and bustle of the city. Watching the speedboat cut open ten thousand pear flowers and set off thousands of snow waves, my heart became calm. Having been at the seaside all the year round, I seem to have returned to my familiar living environment and really felt relaxed and comfortable at home.

Koh Samet Island is located in Provence Rayong, southeast of Bangkok, and is 30 minutes away from Pattaya. With the bumpy speedboat, gradually, a silvery white ribbon appeared, which was gently wrapped in the clear sea water, just like the white gauze on the bride’s head. Looking around, coconut trees and palm trees all over the island seem to have entered the tropical jungle. The suffocating snow-white sand beaches and clear green sea water make Koh Samet Island worthy of the name.

Drinking freshly squeezed iced juice, a wisp of cool and refreshing water seeped into my heart. Stay in the comfortable SAI KAEW seaside hotel, thoughtful and meticulous arrangements let me wash away my exhaustion.

Koh Samet Island covers an area of 9 square kilometers and is surrounded by fine silvery sand. One afternoon, we took a speedboat to three beaches. Each section of the beach has its own characteristics. The seaside hotel is quiet and comfortable, picturesque and like a fairyland. Take a cup of bright red papaya juice, lean against the exquisite wooden chair, listen to the waves, look at the thick clouds in the sky, the looming sunset, spend a leisurely and wonderful afternoon time. “It feels good to have money! “The partners of the same trade smiled at each other and expressed such feelings at the same time.

The night fell lightly, and Koh Samet Island was covered with gorgeous clothes by bright lights. Eating a sumptuous dinner and enjoying a funny comedy performance. A group of children from European and American countries were excited around the small stage. Screams and cheers joined the waves to form a touching symphony. When the actor swung the two fireballs into gorgeous rings of fire, I seemed to be in a happy wedding. Warm but touching, luxurious with elegance. What kind of cultural accumulation can create such strong national characteristics? At this moment, I seem to know why Thailand has become a major tourist country. The rise and fall of the Thai people in one thousand years, the prosperity of the Sukhothai dynasty, and the achievements of Emperor Langanxing… Thailand occupies a seat in the United Nations in the world of powerful hands. The tropical scenery of banana wind, coconut rain, blue sky and blue sea is certainly attractive, while the resplendent and magnificent palaces and temples are certainly attractive. However, Thailand’s long history and culture, its national spirit of self-improvement and self-reliance, and the hospitality of the Thai people make people willing to stop here. This is more like the habitat of wanderers’ hearts. It is a place where you don’t want to leave when you come!

After a night’s sleep on the waves, we returned to the seaside in the early morning. The sky is low and the clouds are dark, and the sea and sky are grey. A small boat in the vast ocean rose and fell with the breath of the sea, as if to break free from the shackles of the cable and drift far away. Ha Mei’s white flower dress lit the cold and cheerless beach, stepping on the waves, she was like the daughter of an elf sea of the sea.

Leaves and a lovely puppy are talking, looking so soft and gentle. (The leaf hung up the photo by itself, so I had to choose “the wind falls with the leaf and looks far away”)

A piece of incomplete fishing net was so striking in the sea breeze that I asked Xiao Shuai to open the fishing net and take photos. I want to tell this young man that life is like an endless network. Neither can we be trapped by life nor be unconstrained.

It rained cats and dogs and we ran back to the restaurant. The heavy rain, like falling from the sky, spread a thick curtain at the window. The sea is choppy and the dark clouds in the sky roll over. I am worried about the weather on my return trip. The tour guide told us that it was not terrible to have such heavy rain in Thailand and usually stopped in a short time. I am most afraid of the continuous light rain, which will never end. Sure enough, before breakfast was finished, the heavy rain stopped and the sky was faintly shining. Instead of taking a speedboat, we took a colorful cruise ship. The Thai flag fluttered in the wind at the bow and thousands of white chains were thrown out at the stern. We were getting farther and farther away from Koh Samet Island.
