Phuket Island’s Great Year

Phuket Island’s Great Year

On the eve of the Chinese Lunar New Year in February 2011, I took the ferry from Phi Phi Island to Phuket at 9: 00 a.m. and thought it was as wide and comfortable as the ferry when I came, but only to find that the ferry back to Phuket was old, small and crowded, and unlike the strange fare of free drinks and snacks when I came, the ferry was very different from the old. From the dock to Patong Beach, I passed Phuket Town and saw China’s Guandi Temple and Tianhou Temple on the roadside. I felt that Chinese culture was very kind! Phuket Temple of Heaven was honored by the ancestors of Tainan City’s Luer Queen of Heaven in 2007.

Tropical flowers are also in full bloom during the Spring Festival.

Returning to Burasari at noon, it is gratifying to upgrade us to the swimming pool room. The balcony of the room is shaded by green trees. Walking down the steps is the green swimming pool, which is pleasing to the eye. In the afternoon, I went to the sunny Patong Beach, where there were a sea of people.

On New Year’s Eve, I went to Patong Night Market, Some restaurants marked the 980-person set meal to celebrate the Chinese New Year, but worried about the large amount, they decided to go back to the hotel’s garden restaurant for the New Year’s Eve meal. They found a seat with an electric fan and ordered roasted steak, grapefruit salad, winter yin gong, roasted shrimp, pineapple rice, yellow curry chicken, vanilla chocolate ice cream, Thai spring rolls, etc. in the band and Thai folk songs and dances. Six people spent 800 yuan RMB. After a quiet exotic New Year’s Eve on the hot island of Phuket, there was no CCTV party or deafening firecrackers, but there were songs and dances accompanied by warm wind, which made people drunk and unable to return.

January 1, 2011

I got up at 4: 00 a.m. and the hotel breakfast was packed in the lobby. The plane to Bangkok was 7:25 and Phuket Airport was 6:30. I was very nervous to check my luggage. A large number of Europeans who flew directly to Copenhagen formed a long line at the exit. Phuket’s exit was still backward and there was no special passage for infants and the elderly. The boarding staff found us in the team and gave priority to us. They took off immediately after boarding the plane. The island scenery in the Andaman Sea under the porthole in the morning was very beautiful. After an hour and a half of flight to Bangkok, Thai Airlines flew to Shanghai at 10:35. Thai Airlines sent snacks to congratulate the Chinese New Year. Three and a half hours to fly back to Pudong, Shanghai. Shanghai is the first day of the new year, with clear skies, but the temperature is 30 degrees lower than Phuket Island.

On the morning of the first day of the year, I flew from Phuket to Bangkok. The Andaman Sea outside the porthole under the clouds reflected golden light. The Golden Year of the Rabbit has come!

On the way from Bangkok to Shanghai, Thai Airways congratulated Xinxi on his dessert.

As the Spring Festival approaches, the memories left behind are repeated and faded away every year. Now the only fear left behind is Zhao Benshan, and only the unhappiness and annoyance of eating New Year’s Eve dinner in restaurants. The New Year’s Eve on Phuket Island leaves me with a long aftertaste.

Phi Phi Island’s Diving Tour

Phi Phi Island is located in the southeast of Phuket, 40 kilometers apart. The speedboat takes one and a half hours to sail. When you arrive at Phuket Island, you should swim Phi Phi Island. Apart from the scenery of the island, it is a world-famous diving resort. This time I went to Phi Phi Island from Phuket for three days. One of the major tasks was to take the junior diving license.

As soon as I arrived at Phi Phi Island, I went to the small street to find a center with professional Chinese coaches that had good online contact. The small street was mostly a hotel, followed by various PADI diving centers. I found this one with Chinese coaches. A blackboard at the door said in Chinese: “Go diving, please come at 8 o’clock in the evening”! There are quite a few people who learn diving!

There are at least a dozen PADI-certified water training centers on PP Island. PADI is the Professional Association of Diver Instructor. Founded in 1966 by Ralf Ericssion and John Cronin. Based on the principle of teaching, they designed a complete set of teaching system, which quickly made diving activities flourish greatly. It is a profit-making commercial organization and is managed by CMAS (Confederation Mondiale des Activities Subaquatiques) International Underwater Sports Federation.

The younger generation was very busy. During the three days in Phi Phi Island, they spent two and a half days and three nights in a row in diving courses, including the E-Learning online training system, learning the diving theory knowledge officially formulated by PADI from the online. On the first day, they saw that the diving center was full of young men and women who were concentrating on the computer and thought they were playing games. In addition to learning online, there is also a 360-page “Open Water Divers Manual”, which is divided into three units.

360-page Handbook for Divers in Open Waters

It is divided into three units. The online tutorial is subtitled in Chinese, and the diving manual is a traditional Chinese version, which is relatively convenient. After passing the theoretical examination well and practicing in the calm waters, PADI finally completed the PADI Open Water Junior Scuba Water Man Course, which includes 5 indoor courses, 5 swimming pool internship courses and 4 ocean internship courses. After passing the examination, the certificate will have to be reviewed by PADI headquarters and will not be available until two months later.

Diving, really sinking is not easy, began to ask the coach to help dive.

In the sea, the coach is completely one-on-one teaching and guidance. Never be careless. Life is at stake! Our Chinese diving coach is a lady with a beautiful name: Yunshan, Malaysian, and the blonde male coach is Joe, Australian. They are all serious, responsible and patient.

Two coaches, Yunshan and Joe

Learning equipment is also very tense and tiring. On the third day of the morning, I went out to sea to dive deeply. I took special care to eat less breakfast. However, the sea was very stormy and seasick, which made the bathroom of the diving boat collapse and muddle.

Jump down from the ship and enter another space.

Diving into the sea water of more than ten meters, the scenery in front of us is different and colorful. The quiet space world at the bottom of the sea is breathless. It’s amazing!

Big turtles are seen at a depth of 15 meters.

The monster hiding in the coral reef, known as parrot fish/parrot fish (PARROT FISH), is one of the brightly colored fishes with bright blue, green, red and black body colors. The mouth of the parrot fish merges with its body and is shaped like the mouth of a parrot.

Lionfish, Lions are distributed in coral reef waters of Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean. They are carnivorous and can be fed with animal bait and artificial feed. They are suitable for aquariums with water temperature of 26 degrees, sea water specific gravity of 1.022 and water volume of more than 300 litres. Their maximum body length can reach 31 centimeters and their heads are wide and flat. The kiss is wide and blunt. Eyes small, upper lateral. At the end of the mouth, the maxilla slightly protrudes. The branchial foramen is medium large. The body is scaleless, and the skin is soft, smooth or has granular small spines. The dorsal fin is elongated, continuous or with a notch, and the fin spine is thin and weak, similar to the fin strip. Prolongation of anal fin; The caudal fin is flat or round, often connected with the dorsal fin and anal fin. The pectoral fin base is broad and extends forward to the throat. The ventral fin is in the chest position and heals into a sucker.

Clownfish, Clown in Red Coral

The tuition fee for the whole junior diver is 13,800 Thai baht, about 2,900 RMB. The experience scuba diving course for only the first unit is 3,800 Thai baht, about 850RMB, and there is also a certificate. Only the second and third units are required for the next grade. Compared with the current tuition fees for driving tests in China, it is still possible.

It is worth mentioning that OPEN WATER DIVER (junior diver in open waters, OW’s water depth limit is 18 meters) can be used as credits in American universities, so young people from all over the world gather in this diving resort, which also makes it prosperous.

Thailand Self-help Tour (Preparation Before Travel)

This trip to Thailand also played many games from the beginning when I thought about traveling with a group to the later choice of a full self-help tour. I finally decided to take a full self-help tour. I downloaded a lot of achievements and travel notes from the Internet and learned a lot of experiences and clues from it. (I would like to thank those who have worked so hard to write travel notes and strategies!) The following is a brief introduction to my trip:

E Travel Network Forum Address:

(2) Seize opportunities during promotion. For example, Air Aisago often has hotels in 0 yuan, and other websites also have activities of 2 nights minus how many US dollars. For those who stay in express hotels with RMB in 100 yuan, the price after promotion is very low!

(The above is online information, and I have made a reservation with reference to these)

The hotel I booked this time was booking, only for two nights. After arriving in Chiang Mai, we found two different hotels. Accommodation prices in Chiang Mai range from 30 baht to 1500 baht and even higher. 200 baht can find a very good standard room.

Three, air ticket reservation:

AirAsia has four major promotions every year, and the price is very powerful compared with the traditional domestic airlines. They are February, May, August and November (December) respectively. AirAsia’s promotion is to release tickets six months in advance. For those who take good leave and arrange time, the price is still awesome. If they are lucky, they can also buy zero yuan air tickets.

Maya Bay Sea Cry

Maya Bay is more than 40 kilometers away from Phuket Island. On Little Phi Phi Island, 3 kilometers away from Big Phi Phi Island, it is surrounded by mountains on three sides and has snow-white beaches. It is famous for the movie “Beach” starring Leonardo. The beach is not large, with hundreds of meters of cliffs around it. The sea is blue and the shore is dotted with wild trees. It is a typical tropical island in the Indian Ocean.

You can take a high-speed speedboat from Phuket Island to visit Maya Bay, but you don’t have to live in Phi Phi Island. The voyage takes about one hour. The speedboat has two engines and three pairs. It is said that there are still five rounds.

A speedboat on an island

A three-engine speedboat

On the ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi Island, I saw a flying high-speed boat.

January 31, 2011

At 3: 00 p.m., a speedboat was arranged, and a group of five people went to the Mayan Bay at 1200 baht. They chose to go in the afternoon to avoid congestion. It is said that the cruise ships on the Bay were packed with people in the morning and could not even dock. January is the peak of tourism on Phuket Island. Several famous beaches were noisy and crowded. The excitement was comparable to that of Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street in Shanghai. After landing at Phuket Airport from Bangkok, they could not get to Hong Kong. They waited on the plane for 45 minutes. When leaving Phuket, they queued for an hour at the airport for exit inspection. A large number of Europeans took direct flights back to Copenhagen.

It is true that there are a little fewer people in Mayan Bay in the afternoon, but the sun has passed overhead and the shooting of the Bay has turned against the light. The rush hour was full of speedboats, and the latecomers could not reach the shore yet!

The clear sea water of Maya Bay

Maya Bay has a U-shaped pocket with a small mouth and can only be entered by bypassing the cliff.

At ordinary times, the cliff is also very stormy.

Forgetting feelings in the beautiful Mayan Bay, unconsciously dripping a few cool raindrops, the western sky was overcast, the fat speedboat captain softly reminded: back? Back? Looking west out of the bay, dark clouds are rolling.

Leave Maya Bay and look back at the beautiful beach.

Hurriedly boarded the boat and returned home. When crossing the headland, the wind and rain suddenly came, The waves are surging, Looking at the depths of the ocean, dark clouds are connected with the sea. The sound of the speedboat’s motors roared with the sound of the wind. Turning over the cliffs of Little Phi Phi Island, Hearing a loud beep, The windshield in the front half of the speedboat was covered with what’s things. Looking back at the dark sea that had blown tens of meters away, the fat captain stopped the ship quickly and seemed to want to retrieve it. However, a gust of wind and waves disappeared. The speedboat shook badly. The captain righted the crooked warning light in the middle of the speedboat and rolled down the broken tarpaulin. He also righted the steering wheel from time to time. I am worried that he will not drive back to find it!

The speedboat, which lacked the wind and rain canopy, continued to return, slowing down its speed obviously, but the fierce wind splashed in like water arrows on its face and its eyes could not be opened. On the right is Xiao Phi Phi’s frightening cliff, and on the left is the darkness connected by the water and the sky. It makes me fall into an ice cave. My hair is creepy and I am extremely frightened. I am afraid of being buried in the belly of the fish, especially the three-year-old little grandson wrapped in a big towel on the boat. Although I was nervous, I didn’t forget to take a picture of this scene, but the waves crashed into the speedboat with loud bangs, and the top jolted violently. I grabbed the hurdle with both hands to avoid the top of the speedboat, and I couldn’t even open the waterproof bag to take the camera.

The speedboat turned into Phi Phi Island Bay. The wind and rain gradually stopped and the sky was bright. It hurried ashore. It was not forgotten to take a souvenir for the speedboat and the fat driver, which was also the record of the 20-minute sea panic. Now the memory is still afraid.

The fat captain is inspecting the damage of the speedboat. It can be seen in the picture that the windshield at the front of the speedboat has been removed.

Nowadays, tourism has become a fashion, and tourism accidents are increasing. Ships that spend the night at Ha Long Bay will be wiped out, ships on Mekong River will sink, mountain climbing will fall to death, and road accidents will occur from time to time. In the face of accidents, in a word, we must pay attention to safety! In addition, it is impossible to prevent, don’t forget to buy insurance, and finally pray: God bless!

Six months ago, the sea was in panic, and what could not be swung away was the towering shadow of this cliff!

# A City-Micro Raiders Contest # Reluctant to Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is located in a plateau basin with an altitude of 300 meters, surrounded by mountains, with cool climate, charming scenery, numerous historic sites, prosperous commerce and developed tourism. It is a famous summer resort in Southeast Asia. Chiang Mai is known all over the world as “Beauty and Rose”. It is the political, economic, cultural and educational center in northern Thailand, the second largest city in Thailand, the largest city in northern Thailand and the capital of Chiang Mai. Since 1296, it has been the capital of Lana Dynasty (or “Nanzhang”). The old city is in Hexi and the new city is in Hedong. There are two bridges connecting them. Chiang Mai is famous for its handicrafts, including jewelry, silverware, pottery, wood carving, silk, etc. Industries include teak preliminary processing and sawing. Chiang Mai has developed transportation and is the terminal of the northern railway, 752 kilometers away from Bangkok, with an airport. There are about 200 temples in the city, including Qingmen Temple built in the 13th century. The Shuanglong Temple on Sutie Mountain on the outskirts of the city was built in the 16th century and is a holy place for Buddhists everywhere to worship.

1. How to get there: It is strongly recommended to take a direct flight from Macau to Chiang Mai by AirAsia for self-help tours. Other domestic routes to Chiang Mai need to transfer via Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur. The Macao-Chiang Mai route was only opened on May 22, 2012. Beijing time took off at 20:45 and Thailand time arrived at 22:30 (Thailand time has an hour difference from Beijing time). If you buy it in advance, you can sometimes buy quite cheap air tickets, and you can also visit Macao by the way without applying for a Hong Kong and Macao pass. Why not?

2, Chiang Mai’s traffic

There are 8 modes of transportation to travel in Chiang Mai: (This is a photo of me and an enthusiastic doodle driver)

(1) Rent a bicycle at 50 baht a day. (Two items must be checked: whether the tire is full of gas and whether the brake is smart)

(2) Rental motorcycles, bargaining to 150 baht a day, even 100 plants a day.

(3) Rental a car for self-driving, with a counter-offer of 1,000 baht a day (with an international driver’s license or a new Matai driver’s license).

(4) Taxi package, about 400 baht a day.

(5) Take two cars and make a counter-offer to 20 baht once (no matter far or near).

(6) Take a beep car, make a watch or make a counter-offer, and cut the average bag to 200 baht a day.

(7) Taxis and watches (Chiang Mai taxis are still quite cheap but relatively few).

(8) Participating in local tour, such as riding elephants, rafting and other travel agencies can offer discounts.

In Chiang Mai, whether it is a doodle car, a taxi or a two-car car, they are very friendly and will never be forced to kill. However, taxis usually do not change, doodle cars usually have to tip, and tips cannot be given to coins.

3, Chiang Mai food:

It is not too much to say that Chiang Mai is “a place where taste buds bloom with passion”. Moreover, Thais have special hobbies and like to make food colorful. It seems that only in this way can food be more delicious. In the night market, there are stalls selling banana bags and lotus leaf bags anywhere. In a banana bag or lotus leaf bag, the prepared purple rice or glutinous rice is sweetly mixed with various auxiliary materials, fresh and sweet. There is also Ruaam mit sold in plastic bags, which is cold and sweet and relieves summer heat. Of course, there are also all kinds of delicious snacks. Even the same river flour can be used in countless ways, which makes people feel that the stomach is not enough. As for all kinds of fresh, delicious and cheap tropical fruits that can be seen everywhere, I don’t need to introduce them, just eat them.

Thousand-person hot pot (this is the one where we eat)

There are many similar hotpot restaurants in the north and northwest of Chiang Mai. According to the person’s charge, the price ranges from 120 baht to 250 baht. Food is eaten casually and drinks are drunk casually. All kinds of fish and shrimps can be roasted and rinsed. All kinds of fruits, ice cream and desserts are eaten together by more than 1,000 people. The scene is spectacular. Some hotpot restaurants have local performances and various funny programs. The one we eat is relatively cheap. There is only a big TV, which is playing Thai TV series. It is a bit like an open-air cinema. The clerks are very enthusiastic, but only one of them can speak a little English, and the others all communicate in sign language. Here, it fully proves the strong practicability of “sign language + smile”.

There are many bars with emotional appeal along the moat and Ping River in Chiang Mai. It is quite pleasant to sit by the river and drink wine and tea. What is even more petty is to go to the maeping hotel in Chiang Mai for afternoon tea, which is said to be Teresa Teng’s favorite place.

4, Chiang Mai residence:

We have lived in three stores in Chiang Mai, each with its own characteristics. Generally speaking, they are clean enough and the price is medium in the local area. For the first two days, we stayed at Mandala House (Mandela Hotel). We booked it online at Three people with one bed, 1100 Thai baht for one night, including breakfast. The breakfast was very delicious. The waiter in the store could speak Chinese. The two houses in the back were both found while wandering in Chiang Mai City. One was the one in the photo, which was 1200 baht per night and could accommodate four people, like a suite with one room, two halls, one kitchen and one bathroom. The other one is cheaper, 350 baht standard room, and the location is also very good. In Chiang Mai, we even saw hotels similar to youth tours with 30 ~ 50 baht per person, which were also built with great emotional appeal. I heard that some were fully booked a month ago.

5, Chiang Mai’s play:

Temple View:

There are more than 300 temples inside and outside Chiang Mai City. No matter how big or small, these temples have the power to calm people down. In the evening, I came to Chidilong Temple (also known as the Great Pagoda Temple and the Great Buddha Pagoda Temple), just as the monks were doing their late homework. Older monks read sutras, and their voices filled the air in the golden Buddhist temple, like sounds of nature chanting. The younger novice monks flashed their big eyes and looked around. From time to time, some people join in and take a scripture, so that they can chant sutras and worship Buddha together. Even if you don’t know Thai, it doesn’t matter. If you close your eyes and listen, or sit up and meditate, you can enter the realm of soul peace. In Chedilong Temple, there is also the activity of “chatting with monks”. Within a fixed period of time, tourists can talk with monks, learn about the history of the temple and learn some Buddhist allusions.

Wat Chedi Luang

Chidilong Temple was founded in 1411 and is the most famous of the six temples in Chiang Mai. It is the most prestigious temple in Chiang Mai together with Pashin Temple. The tall Lana-style pagoda in the temple was built in 1441 and destroyed by an earthquake in the 16th century, but it is still the most magnificent building in the city. There are six elephant head statues on the south side of the tower, five of which are fakes that were later repaired with cement, and only the one made of bricks on the far right is the real one. Unfortunately, years of wind and sun have damaged the nose and ears. Walking around the square pagoda, there are two halls behind the square pagoda. In the glass cabinet in the middle of each hall sat a wax figure of an eminent monk in a gaze, with bright eyes and lifelike appearance. Great Pagoda: There is a grand square pagoda in the temple, which was built in the early 15th century and has been added several times since then, reaching 85.4 meters high. It is said that it can look thousands of miles away. In 1545, a major earthquake and wind disaster occurred in Chiang Mai. The spire of the pagoda collapsed overnight, revealing the golden Buddha statue inside the pagoda.

Wat Phra Singh (this photo was taken when we were visiting the weekend night market)

also translated Praxin Temple, alias Shuanglong Temple or Shariko Buddhist Temple, is the largest Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai and the most noble temple in Chiang Mai together with Chedilong Temple. Founded in 1345 by King Meng Lai, it was used to worship the ashes of his father. After many expansions, the existing scale was formed. Around the temple, there are pines and cypresses, towering ancient trees, and two huge dragons inlaid with stained glass sheets and fan-shaped colored glazed small ceramic tiles, each with seven dragon heads of different sizes, perched on both sides of the stone steps, with the dragon heads high and tilted, imposing. The dragon body, which is about 150 meters long, rises and falls along with the stone steps and extends to the gate of the Buddhist temple. The stone steps are stacked one after another, totaling 309 steps, which is very spectacular. In the middle of the temple is a 20-meter-high Shwedagon Pagoda, built in the 16th century. It is said that the pagoda contains the relics of Buddha Sakyamuni. At the top of the tower is a crystal lotus presented by the King of Thailand. There are four Buddha halls in the temple, east, west, north and south. They are connected by long corridors and form a square. Each hall is equipped with a golden Buddha. The main hall, Laigan Hall, houses three Buddha statues that are regarded as the most spiritual in northern Thailand. Little Tie: Every year from April 13 to 15, Pasin Temple is one of the main places for people to celebrate the Water Splashing Festival. Bronze Buddha Statues: The early Lanna-style bronze Buddha statues enshrined in the temple were invited from the neighboring city of Chiang Rai in 1400. The murals with Buddhist stories painted on the surrounding walls are lifelike, as well as exquisite wood carvings. They are considered as representative works of traditional art in northern Thailand and excellent Buddhist works of art.

Chiang Mai’s large and small temples have their own characteristics, so they are not listed here. Whether you are interested in Buddhism or not, it is worth savoring carefully.

Elephant Riding:

We reported a “jungle trio” at a travel agency in Chiang Mai, including elephant riding, rafting and mountain hiking. There are many travel agencies in Chiang Mai, and the tour items are generally the same. The quotations vary from high to low. It is necessary to compare them. Sign up on the first day, and there will be a car to pick up your hotel the next day, like a group of individual tourists. The several projects we have participated in are a combination of 12 or 3 people each time. Among these more than a dozen people, there are often Chinese people, and every time we meet Chinese people, we have a very happy conversation and are deeply impressed.

In Thailand, riding elephants is a must. The chair on the elephant’s back is fixed. We sit on it directly. There is no safety belt on the chair. The elephant walks on the mountain road and fools. At first, we were worried that if the elephant lies down, our chair would become a slide. Soon, the super-cool feeling of passing through the leaves overcame that little fear. The elephant we were riding was the one above. The owner of the elephant (elephant slave) was very thin, his clothes were tattered, he had no shoes on, and his feet were cracked. However, his mental state was very good and he was very happy all the way. What he was holding was a wooden stick with an iron hook. When the elephant was disobedient, he beat it and pricked it. It felt very cruel. However, if you think about it carefully, the elephant’s skin was so thick that the elephant could not feel it without a hook. The elephants we ride like to eat and often stop to eat grass. What’s elephants will get a small stick. Later, it was found that there was still a small elephant in the team. Maybe we were riding a mother elephant.

The elephant rode around the hillside for an hour. After that, the staff developed the photos of each tourist they “secretly took”. The elephant rolled up a photo with its nose and handed it to me. After taking a look, it was the above one. I don’t know how the elephant distinguished this group of tourists. Anyway, we didn’t see anyone making gestures.

Slide rope (Jungle Flight):

This photo was also “secretly taken” by the staff of “Jungle Sliding Rope”.

Starting from Chiang Mai City, it takes one hour to drive to Baan Nam Khong, a mysterious village hidden in Doi Lungka, Thailand’s fifth highest mountain at an altitude of 1200 meters. This will be the starting and ending point of Jungle Flight. According to their own website, the altitude of 1,000 meters makes Jungle Flight the company with the highest geographical location in Thailand’s sliding rope project. The unique alpine and jungle climate keeps it at 18 ~ 28 degrees all the year round. November to February is the most pleasant season every year. The just-concluded rainy season irrigates a large area of green vegetation, showing the unique rich flavor of tropical rain forest everywhere. BNK is the most beautiful in March and April. All flower species bloom in turn. Tall and straight trees are also covered with green crowns to welcome the upcoming rainy season. Rain began to increase gradually in May, the climate was cool and the sky was as blue as wash. In the intermittent sunshine and rain, huge white clouds were suspended in the mountains, making it impossible to move one’s eyes away….

The whole Jungle Flight is divided into two routes A and B according to the length of the route. More than 1/2 of the population in our family is physically weak, so we chose the shorter route A, which includes: flying over 24 platforms (50 kilometers per hour), 1 high-altitude suspension bridge, 1 air spiral ladder, 2 longest flight tracks (including extraordinary tracks 50 meters and 300 meters long from the ground), 3 high-altitude downturns (up to 40 meters above the ground), 35 meters climbing tree nets, etc. The skating coach is a handsome man, very professional, and will observe your ability and courage. When you descend at high altitude, they will adjust the length and speed of the descent according to your courage. My son was timid and reluctant when he first started playing. After experiencing the feeling of flying on the sliding rope, his interest became higher and higher. If he had known this earlier, it would have been better to quote a longer route B.

Tip: Jungle Flight cannot carry a backpack or a large camera. If you want to take a picture, you need to bring a small card player. Bag, large camera and what can be put in the locker they provide. There are also free bottled water and buffet lunch, which are very considerate.

Learn to cook:

This is where I learned to cook Thai food in Asia science in Chiang Mai. Learning to cook Thai food in Chiang Mai is also a good experience. Many people take part in the study every day. You can find photos of students who come here every day to learn cooking on the website I went there on August 6, and I can find more other photos of me on this website. What I attended was a half-day experience. I could learn to cook four categories and five dishes. After finishing, I could taste them on the spot or take my family to eat together. The tuition fee was 700B, but I saved the lunch money for a family of four. Ha ha.

6. Shopping in Chiang Mai

It is strongly recommended that this is the real fair in Chiang Mai. People in dozens of miles around are selling their own belongings and handicrafts at a price that may be only 1/3 of that of Night Bazaar. Even Chiang Mai locals were dispatched, with half of the tourists and half of the locals patronizing. The goods sold are really dazzling, with few similarities. From the beginning of Tapeimen to several blocks in the ancient city, there are a sea of people and the scale is very large. On that day, we went from 4: 00 p.m. to 11: 00 p.m. when the market opened, and we still had some fun. When we went to Chiang Mai this weekend night market, we must not miss it.

Seven, Chiang Mai’s characteristic customs:

Massage: (Foot massage can be seen everywhere on the fork roads of Chiang Mai’s streets) Is there any place in what more comfortable than doing massage here? All kinds of massage methods can be selected at will, from foot massage to traditional Thai massage, as well as hot sand massage, essential oil massage, hot oil physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, etc. Anyway, there are all kinds of massage and Spa technologies in the world. If you are tired from shopping, find a Spa and have a massage to ensure that the fatigue of the day will subside. In Chiang Mai, there are also many kinds of massage shops, some in high-end five-star hotels, some in affordable roadside shops, and the massage technicians are good. There is also the famous Chiang Mai Women’s Prison, where female prisoners massage tourists, which is not encountered in other places. In Chiang Mai, this can be experienced every day. The price is not expensive either. The traditional Thai massage is only 150B per hour.

Early morning alms:

Sunday Walking Street (This is a stall selling craft wax)–In a materialistic and disturbing world, is what more peaceful than a devout heart? In Chiang Mai, every morning, people spontaneously come to the streets of the ancient city to give alms to monks who come to alms. Thailand has a very high proportion of people who believe in Buddhism, so people almost always greet each other in a folded way. Thailand believes in Mahayana Buddhism, and monks do not eat after noon, so they need to go out of the temple every morning to receive alms. Most of the local people cook their own meals at home and prepare the necessary items for alms to wait for the monks to arrive at their doorsteps. Many tourists also joined the charity team and could buy wrapped food and water from peddlers at the edge of the ancient city to show their hearts to the monks. Monks will line up and walk slowly. Sometimes the innocent and lovely little novice monks will walk in front. They carried their bowls to the front of the believers kneeling on the ground, took food, money and other items, then read a scripture for the believers, and then moved on. The process of giving alms in the morning is very short, but it will make people feel very peaceful. In the past few days in Chiang Mai, I got up three times in the morning and went to the river to watch alms, experiencing and feeling the peace. It is true to say that Chiang Mai is a rose in northern Thailand. This time I went to Thailand without going to the Grand Palace in Bangkok, the traditional route, Batia, the transvestite, or the islands in southern Thailand with super beautiful environment. I just stayed in Chiang Mai for several days. Even so, I felt that I did not stay enough. I will definitely go to Chiang Mai again.

Record 7 days of drifting in Thailand. . .

Speaking of this trip, it is purely impulsive. Just read a few travel posts about Thailand and got a passport and booked a plane ticket. I happen to have a vacation in July,

Just relax, open your eyes and exercise your self-care ability.

On July 14, the passport was completed, and China Eastern Airlines booked a ticket from Shanghai to Bangkok on the 21st one day apart, returning 2000 + (tax included).

There are several problems that have been bothering me on this trip:

1. Is ONE DAY WORLD’s English reliable on the road alone?

2. Whether Thailand’s political situation is stable and whether it is safe.

3. I made various unsafe assumptions in a foreign land when I left the country for the first time.

After reading the strategy articles in the next few days, I felt that there should be no problem. Resolutely completed the visa and hit the road.

Pattaya Beach

Pattaya Beach

The endless western Pacific Gulf of Siam is dotted with flower-like islets. In the center of the islets is a thick green tropical rain forest surrounded by pure white sand beaches. The color of the surrounding sea water progresses layer by layer from deep blue lake, blue sky, blue blue and light blue. The beautiful scenery like a dream makes people intoxicated…….

Among these many islands, there is such an island with charming scenery like a graceful fairy. It is quiet, elegant and does not lose its light. Its fresh and romantic temperament and unpolished original style are fascinating. It is Pattaya that once intoxicated me. I had the privilege of being here just a few days ago.

Pattaya is located in Chonburi Prefecture 147 kilometers southeast of Bangkok. In the 1960s, Pattaya was only a small fishing village on the east coast of Siam Bay. It was discovered by Americans during the Vietnam War. Since April 1961, US military base personnel stationed in Uwen, northeastern Thailand, have flocked to Pattaya, a beautiful beach, whenever they take a vacation.

Since then, Pattaya, which is unknown, has started its rapid development. Various commercial categories and trades have emerged and become a world-famous seaside resort in just 30 years. It quickly became Thailand’s most famous beach resort and a bright pearl on the east coast, known as “Oriental Hawaii”.

Take a bus to the seaside. The road gradually widened. When the beach could be seen, the road was already a flat and spacious asphalt road, winding along the coast. On both sides of the road are coconut trees, neat and tall. The triangle plum flowers on the roadside are blooming brilliantly. Pieces of pink petals like butterfly fairies are dancing among the green leaves, lively and lovely like elves under the sunshine.

On the beach, the delicate and soft white sand stroked my bare soles, one by one, to keep my footsteps. With a little force, the young sand came up from the toes of the feet without making any noise, but when the foot was lifted, it hurried down again-a shy expression. I wanted to take a handful of fine sand with me, but when I scooped it up, it had already raised a gentle flag between my fingers. As a result, I no longer want to seize it, open my fingers and stretch out my hands as if I already own the whole beach.

Above me is the sky. It was a stretch of blue that could not be seen or worn, and a deep dazzle of tranquility that could not be grasped. I put bundles into my sight, but they gradually rose and rose and rose and fell away in the blue until they melted and hung high into a distant sky. On the horizon, white clouds are like sails. In front of me is the sea. It was inexhaustible clear and clear, and irresistible exultation. I sent my eyes one after another, but they swam deeper and deeper and became more transparent in the ups and downs until they seeped together and became a sea of blue water. Cape, island like moss.

Pattaya’s sky is blue, Pattaya’s sea is also blue, as pure and as touching. The difference is that the blue of the sky is quiet and the blue of the sea is lively. If Pattaya is a classic romance, that day is its poem, the sea is its prose, and I am like a symbol between the lines.

On the speedboat, I seemed moved into a blue spirit in Pattaya’s blue sea and sky. After speeding for about 30 minutes, the front Sands Island came into view. Sands Island has snow-like fine sand Long Beach, blue sky and crescent-like bay. This is Pattaya’s most beautiful and primitive island.

The speedboat stopped at the flat and wide beach on the south coast of the island, and a silver beach five or six kilometers long was displayed in front of us in the north of the island. This is an open public bath beach. The sea water is light blue and light blue, glittering and translucent, sparkling, smooth and secluded green, tender, graceful and affectionate… The natural scenery on the beach and the beautiful girls and beauties from all over the world really make people heartache.

The beach is lined with beach chairs and sun umbrellas. There are many restaurants along the beach, usually mainly seafood, and there are also many tourist shops with ethnic characteristics. Vendors sell silk fabrics, swimsuits, casual pants, ethnic costumes, leather * * leather, handicrafts to tourists, and there are also women who tie braids.

There are all kinds of water sports on the beach, such as motorboats, skateboarding, banana boats, etc. This is also a world-famous diving holy place, so I first took part in this diving activity called Walking in the Sea. . The beautiful coral reefs on the seabed are surrounded by clear sea water and can clearly see all kinds of colorful tropical fish, devil fish, sea cucumbers, dolphins and other marine organisms.

When I realized that I had reached the deep sea, Suddenly I felt a tinnitus, a swollen head and shortness of breath. Groups of small oval fish with various colors and patterns swam past me. There was also a big turtle with beautiful spots chasing and catching the fish in dancing. Only at the moment I had no intention of watching these marine creatures and the beautiful scenery of the seabed.

In a few seconds, my head arched out of the water. I breathed a sigh of relief and the depression in my chest was released at once. After a false alarm, I finally got a new life and saw the light of day again, but the back of the barge and the eardrum were still swollen and painful for a long time. One by one, people excitedly exchanged what they saw and heard under the water, telling the happiness of diving. They all thought the diving time was too short to come up. Ha ha, I was the only one who told the story of underwater distress.

Then, I experienced the feeling of “parachuting”. Put on a special life jacket, littered with a strong tie. “One, two, three, put! “Ooh, I suddenly was a huge sudden force fiercely pulled out of the floating platform. The strong inertia made my head suddenly lean back, leaving people in the air and my heart in the air. Therefore, I couldn’t help shouting, “Ah-! “

Ear, whirring is the wind. The unbalanced vertigo soon disappeared. Already in the high sky. Like ants is pulling my speedboat on the sea, like matchboxes is floating platform, I fly very high. I couldn’t feel the pull of the cable in front of my abdomen. I really felt that I was flying. Flying on the sea of Pattaya, flying in the blue sky of Pattaya!

What a high blue sky! What a vast sea! For the first time, I looked at the sky and the sea from such an angle and so clearly. The wind passed clearly by my side, like silk. The parachute, very large, bright orange and bright indigo stripes surrounded me obliquely above. Hi! Parachutes! I take you with me. Between the sea and sky in Pattaya, you are a blueprint for my life. And I am the most romantic and wonderful record on your blueprint.

The speedboat pulled me. Slowly, the floating platform approached. Looking at the shadow of my own and parachute, it gradually became clear on the sea surface. I bid farewell to Feitian’s emotion. When people applauded for my graceful landing, and when my companions kept my last flying posture, I silently pressed my chest with my palm and told myself: I have experienced a journey of love-love heaven, love sea, love myself, love the people I love.

The sun set slowly. The setting sun shone its last golden light on the white clouds, dyeing the sky red with rosy clouds. The sea seems to have solidified at Pattaya Beach in the sunset. The ribbon-shaped clouds, as if painted with color by the painter, have become colorful clouds. Under the background of sunset glow, what appears is the beautiful and unforgettable silhouette.

On the beach, there was a wonderful melody of guitar. A group of teenagers set up grills on the beach, playing and singing while eating barbecue. I really want to join them and sing with the brisk rhythm. The setting sun slowly sank into the sea level. When the last glow of the setting sun was reflected on everyone’s face, smiling faces were as beautiful and gorgeous as triangle plum in full bloom…….

Husband’s whim, With the “kindness” of her husband’s unit, Arranged his impossible vacation, This is killing me, Looking at strategies, searching information, looking for air tickets, checking hotels, I knew I had prepared several months in advance, so I was in a hurry now. My husband’s “free trip” was really easy. First of all, I saw Ctrip’s free trip.

Phuket’s daredevil

Two nights in Phuket Patong, The bikini beauties by the sea are dazzling, What is even more surprising is that the old foreign men and women, with large stomachs, wrinkled skin and drooping meat, tanned dark, barefoot, and no one beside them, marched straight along the beach with flat waves. Patong Beach is several kilometers long. They walked from one end to the other. Judging from their tanned skin, they walked for at least three or four days! This has renewed people’s health concept. They come here to pursue the hot sunshine and the benefits of sports in life. It is too outdated for me to lie on the beach chair in the sun.

On the morning of the third day, I went to PP. I arranged to pick up the bus (similar to a minibus) at 7: 00 a.m. from the roadside tourist spot. The ferry to PP Island started at 8: 00 a.m. and the hotel was half an hour’s drive to the ferry station. I waited and waited in the lobby of the hotel. I didn’t see the minibus coming until 7: 20. The minibus picked up guests from hotel to hotel and was not on time. Eager and hurried to get on the bus, there were already several Europeans on the bus, and they were afraid that they would not catch the ferry! The car company suddenly felt that what was missing for ten minutes! ? Ah! I left my camera bag on the leather chair in the lobby! Everyone in the lobby goes, and anyone can go without delay. Immediately like falling into the ice. Immediately inform the driver, the driver said nothing, only indicated that it was a one-way street and had to circle back to the hotel. This Phuket bird’s road is narrow and full of red lights, and his head is sweating with anxiety!

Phuket Island Patong Beach

The camera bag was left on the bench in the lower left corner.

This minibus is Phuket’s main means of transportation

Very not easy to drive back to the hotel, before waiting for the car to stop, I opened the car door and ran into the lobby. Fortunately, the lobby of the hotel in the hot area is covered and open, without revolving doors. At first glance, the black camera bag was safely placed in the Batai, and the hanging heart immediately fell down. His hands folded and thanked him repeatedly. He ran back to the car. The driver sped all the way and finally arrived at the ferry at 8:05. He gave the driver a tip of 200 Thai baht. His heart was filled with gratitude. After the event, I felt that the tip was too little. This rash was me. Nikon 700 lens accessories in the camera bag were worth about 25,000 RMB, and there was also 40,000 Thai baht of pocket money.

Fortunately, it is still early to find the packet loss. If you get on the ferry, you can’t let the ferry go back. Although the packet can still be found, is there still a good mood on PP Island? ?

Phuket Island Navigation Center

On the ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi Island, Europeans and Americans accounted for the vast majority.

Arriving at PP Island smoothly, I was invited to the seaside restaurant that night. Lobster, prawn and crab were all asked for. This was a rash price.

What disturbed me was that I was in a hurry and could not thank the hotel attendants for putting away and keeping my camera bag for me. Today, I would like to express my thanks and tribute to Burasari Hotel on Phuket Island by visiting many precious places. Thailand’s tourism service is well-known all over the world for its quality.

Imagine Thailand

Imagine a scene: two months later, at midnight on a summer day, the sky was full of stars. Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, in the dim light of night, an “Airbus” roared from the runway, which was an Asian Airlines flight to Bangkok, Thailand. Guangzhou, a metropolis under the wing, is brightly lit. The Thai stewardess on the plane is beautiful and lovely. She gives a charming smile to all the passengers. There is a passenger beside the window of the plane porch, staring at the stars outside the window. He is the traveler-free qq.

After traveling for so many years, it is all train travel in China. This time, it was the first time to take a plane.

Thailand is a country that must be visited by life travel. I have been admiring this beautiful country for a long time.

This is a Buddhist country and a democratic country. This country has a beautiful coastline, a magnificent palace and a kind and honest folkway. Add one more: Chiang Mai in this country is a land that Teresa Teng loved during her lifetime after a generation of songs.

I know that this country once had a beautiful and graceful Prime Minister, Yingluck.

I also know that women in this country, like the Dai people in Yunnan, wear tube skirts and have a slim figure. They also celebrate the Water Splashing Festival.

I also know that there is an auspicious and lovely animal in the forest of this country-elephant.

There is also a unique cultural phenomenon in Thailand: “transvestite”. I really don’t know which Chinese defamed “him/them” as “demon”? In contrast, the English word “ladyboy”, which means “boy with ladies’ characteristics”, is much more tolerant! All we have to do is call them “transsexuals”. Many Chinese people do not understand them and think that they are completely forced by life and willing to be destroyed physically. Some people come into contact with them for pornographic purposes. The purpose of this trip to Thailand is not to rush to see the performance of this transsexual person, but to explore the origin of this feminine culture.

When a man decides to incarnate himself as a woman, what proportion are the forced and voluntary components? Just like sex workers, is it purely to make a living or is it because of vanity to make more money?

Thais believe in Buddhism and worship Buddha, which they do much better than us! Buddhism spread to China and was gradually alienated. In Thailand, Buddha is used to respect and purify life, while here, Buddha is used to bless material benefits (euphemistically called blessing). Respect for Buddha has become a practical philosophy. At ordinary times, they don’t burn incense or do good deeds, so they rush to cram for it.

Thailand, Japan, Britain and the three countries have some similarities. There are not only democratic and free politics, but also the respect and prestige of the king’s royal family. And here, the emperor came out a lot, and in the end he was always overthrown by the people and spurned by the Chinese. Why is this?

Strangely, Thailand seems to have experienced few wars in its history compared with Vietnam, our other neighbor. Apart from the short history of British colonization, China, Japan and the United States, which are international powers, seem to be very friendly to Thailand.

I also know very little about Bangkok, only that there is a floating market there, full of foreign sentiment.

Generally speaking, one should always know something about choosing one’s favorite destination. However, for Thailand, one finds that one knows very little about it. When asked about Thailand’s history and geography, one cannot say. Ask if Thai has ever produced what heroes or heroes, I can’t say! Ashamed, on second thought, perhaps this is not a bad thing for what, its mystery and beauty may increase the charm of this trip!

Having said that, I began to catch up on everything about Thailand: history, geography, climate, Buddhism, royal family, customs, taboos, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Lion Air, diet, transportation. . . The so-called “body is not moving, heart is far away.”

Located about 2 hours west of Bangkok, it is a water market that combines tradition and creativity. It is suggested that everyone stay overnight to experience the life in the water market. There is a special water market and home stay here. You can also watch fireflies by boat at night. Monks can also be seen on the river in the early morning to beg for alms by boat.

This is a more traditional Thai market and the largest water market in Thailand. The whole water market is antique and has many Thai buildings. It is divided into 22 districts, including handicrafts, furniture, clothing, food, etc. In addition, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, you can also enjoy the most traditional Thai singing and dancing performances here. Also don’t forget to taste a special snack here, pancake rolls and sugar shreds!

Opening hours: 10:00am-9:00pm

The first attraction wasAyutthaya Klong Sa Bua Floating Market and Water Theater [MAP]. In Thai it is called. This is found just north of the old city not too far from Wat Na Phra Men. It is not your traditional kind of floating market. The name is a bit misleading. It is more of a “Dinner Theatre” experience that you somethings get in Bangkok

Despite it being the week, there weren’t that many people here. When you arrive you have two choices. First choice is to buy a ticket just to watch the Water Theatre. Adults are 50 baht and children 30 baht. The second choice is Dinner Theatre and the buffet. Regular price is 199/119 Baht or 119/99 Baht if you turn up after 2:30 p.m.. This is excellent value for money as you are allowed

The floating market is only open at the week and on public holdings. It is open from 10 a.m. To 5: 30 p.m. There are five scheduled shows in one day. What I didn’t realize at first is that each show is different. The first one is at 11 a.m. And this is followed by four more shows at 12 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 3 p.m. And 4: 30 p.m.

Deceptive Trick: 1: “The Grand Palace Closes Today” Deception

2 Doodle Car Fraud

3 Patpong Night Market Fraud the Patpong Night Market Fraud is still working very well, because it is too good for curious tourists. When you walk through Papon District and try to go to GoGo Bar to find out, there will always be some people approaching you with menus. All the fun acrobatics on the menu are quite attractive,

Four: Taxi Fraud

Remember to choose the kind of taxi that passes by the road instead of stopping at the side of the road.

The cruise ship scam is similar to the Grand Palace scam. Friends who come to Thailand to travel will not miss the trip to the Chao Phraya River by boat.

When you are having a good chat, he will provide you with cruise ship service at a ridiculously low price. He will explain that he specially provides you with such service because he is very speculative with you. The man was so friendly that he could not give up his hospitality and followed his boat to swim in the river. This visit is real, but it is actually very good. He may even stop at a bar by the river to provide you with cold drinks. So far, everything has been fine. Seeing that the tour is coming to an end, you will think how lucky you are today! However, when the ship approaches the dock, your good luck will disappear instantly at this time, the ship will stop about 200 meters away from the dock, and then the “kind man” will ask you for 1,000 Thai baht or more for service fees. No matter how much you say what, you think it should be, the ship will not approach the dock. Of course, you must also pay the money, otherwise you will not be able to get ashore. The most speechless thing is that you must also give double the price, because they are two people, and both the sailor and the person responsible for introducing the scenic spots to you have to pay.

Don’t trust any stranger who approaches you, although it seems that he is kind, you just smile and refuse. If you want to swim the Chao Phraya River, just go directly to the ticket office on the dock to buy tickets. Don’t be cheated for petty gain.

The self-service ticket vending machine is very easy to operate. There is a ticket price chart beside the machine, which will indicate the price from the current station to the destination station. Press the corresponding price, then put in coins, and the machine will vomit tickets. If you catch up with an insensitive machine, you don’t have to worry if you don’t recognize the swallowed coin. It will come out of the change hole below.

Shopping: Bangkok’s large shopping malls and shopping centers are mostly concentrated in the area near Siam Station of Tiantie.

Bangkok Choose Accommodation Attention: 1. Close to BTS (Tiantie), walk for no more than 10 minutes. Because the traffic jam in Bangkok is very severe, sometimes taking a taxi to some places is the rhythm of sucking to death, so it is true to choose BTS to travel! Moreover, Bangkok’s fun is basically along the BTS, so be sure to choose hotels close to BTS. 2. Choose hotels in the middle of BTS, because Bangkok’s rail transit is priced in sections, and living in the middle can save you a lot of ticket money. If I were to choose next time, I would choose to stay in a hotel near BTS Saladeang Station. What exactly is the middle zone? I will talk about it in the traffic at the back.
