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.

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…….

(For photos of the Grand Palace, please see my photo album “The Different Elegance of the Grand Palace”)

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.

Fruit Fragrance-Visit Fruit Garden

Peter said that the afternoon trip would go to Visit Fruit Garden, when the sun had already begun to show its power and had not shown much interest in visiting the orchard.

When the van drove to the gate of the orchard, cups of clear coconut juice came to us, giving us a boost to our thirst. We changed into a special car for the orchard. Along the road, we heard Peter introduce that the orchard was private and contained more than 20 kinds of fruits. Thailand had suitable weather and fertile land. Mangoes and lotus plums went on sale in April and durian, the “King of Fruits” ripe in May. “After Fruit” Mangosteen; Rambutan, litchi, longan, etc. listed in the rainy season can be enjoyed in this orchard. You can pick and taste them at will in this orchard, but you cannot take the fruits out of the orchard.

As sightseeing bus traveled in twists and turns, we suddenly realized for the trees that we had eaten or seen but had not seen. It turned out that lotus plums grew on this kind of trees, mangosteen trees looked like this, and jackfruit turned out to be such a big one.

The driver driving our convertible sightseeing bus is a humorous person. He should have come into contact with many Chinese guests and will pop up one or two Chinese words to say hello. He will stop at any time and jump down to pick some fruit for us to taste. I remember that the first fruit he picked was pitaya. Its red and fiery appearance attracted me very much, but I didn’t like it all the time. I didn’t think its taste was suitable for me. I didn’t think the fresh pitaya was different from what we bought at the fruit stall. It was more fragrant, sweet and tender, making you feel that it slipped down without chewing in your mouth. When carambola is bought at the fruit stall, it always feels extremely sour. It can only be put in some sugar water or I don’t know how to eat it. Therefore, it seldom comes to my house. Fresh carambola does not have the sour strength when tasting it. It is a little sweet in sour. After eating it, I feel thirsty.

The driver jumped up and down to pick fruits along the road for us. He picked unknown little things on the road, put water on them, and suddenly exploded in front of the leader. When he saw that we were frightened, his face would show a smile that had done bad things. When he saw the honeycomb, he would threaten to poke open the honeycomb. When he performed cutting rubber trees, he took one finger and lit it, then put it into his mouth. The unknown driver also picked up his finger and touched it. Ha ha, now he was overjoyed. It turned out that he put the other finger into his mouth, making people who did not understand think it was edible food.

When we frolicked all the way through the orchard, I saw a group of female workers picking fruits in the woods and repeatedly calling for a stop. The female workers in the orchard seemed to understand what we meant and took pictures of them in different postures in life. The smiles on their faces were very bright. Unfortunately, I did not take pictures of them due to angle problems. As he said “goodbye” and left them and turned to another fruit tree, Suddenly I got a pat on the back, A pair of lotus plums flashing red light and a smiling face appeared in front of me. The smile told me that this was a gift for me. At that moment, I was really touched. Whether she understood it or not, she kept saying thank you and folded her hands to thank her. She just looked at me with a smile and turned away. Their clear laughter rang out from the orchard.

As the car drove forward, we came to the durian area. The driver still did not change his funny nature and picked up a knife to open the durian. At the moment of opening, he suddenly showed a painful expression, causing us to ask in unison if we had cut it. The words just fell and he cut the durian intact.

I never knew there were so many varieties of durian, Durian is divided into “long handle”, “chani” and “golden pillow”. The most popular is the “golden pillow”, which is rich and sweet in meat. The flesh is golden yellow, After listening to Peter’s introduction, When you were buying durian, People who can peddle durian make a small incision. You can press it with your hand and choose the hardness and softness according to your taste. Fresh durian does not have a particularly heavy taste. However, it is actually wrong for us to choose cracked durian in China. Cracked durian may be going to break down, so it gives off a strong taste. Once bought durian, When opened, the room smelled of durian, When tasting it, The smell made me spit it out, Since then, durian has been my least favorite fruit. However, I am a delicious person who did not taste durian in Thailand. I took a few pieces and tasted them. I didn’t think the durian here did not have the original taste. It has long handle, light fruit color and white shape. The taste is not particularly sweet. After tasting several varieties, it is indeed the pure and sweet taste of “golden pillow” with endless aftertaste.

When we left durian area, several of us really couldn’t eat it. At this moment, we wanted our stomachs to be bigger, but there were still sweet longan that we hadn’t tasted. How could we leave willingly? I never thought that on the day when longan was picked directly under the tree and sent to my mouth, longan hung heavily on the tree, attracting us. We all marveled at the sweet longan here. Longan is sweet but its stomach is limited, ha ha.

Although we are not going to the fruit-rich season, we have also felt the fruit garden with fragrant fruit aroma. This orchard makes each of us reap a lot in our stomachs, and also makes me forget the group of happy and enthusiastic women workers in the fruit garden. The fruit garden is reaping both taste and happiness.

Thailand in My Eyes

Thailand is the first time I have stepped out of the country. It always leaves me wanting to write down some what. There are always friends going abroad, Thailand is often their first stop, When they came back to mention Thailand, they showed me more photos of them with Thai transvestites and bird’s nest, but they seldom mentioned other impressions with me. As a result, Thailand gave me the impression of transvestites for a long time. Later, they saw more photos of Thailand on Duoduo, which were the combination of tree tendrils and Buddha. This made me sigh with wonder of nature.

This trip to Thailand is also a pleasant surprise. What I saw and heard in Thailand also gave me a preliminary understanding of it. Although we are playing like sunny water, we have already made me have this desire. Thailand will still choose a tourist country again. At first sight, Bangkok felt that its urban construction was not as good as our second-class city. It may not be disappointing. There are many motorcyclists on the road. In Thailand, they can not buy a house but they can buy a car if they have money. Therefore, the road is blocked. Portraits of their king and queen are hung along the way. You can also know from this that in Thailand, the king has a high position in their hearts and is not allowed to talk about members of the royal family casually.

The sharp corners let you see an upward country. In Thailand, many buildings have sharp corners rushing straight at the clouds. You will be amazed at how exquisite these sharp corners are, and you will be amazed at the glittering golden monasteries in front of you. There will be various flowers in front of you, and more yellow and white flowers dotted in them are especially eye-catching. At the same time, their exquisite carvings in every corner of these monasteries are amazing. From these, we can also feel that Thailand is a country that attaches great importance to details. As the car drives forward, the disappointment gradually disappears, and you unconsciously put into great interest.

Thailand is an extremely contradictory country. On the one hand, it “laughs at poverty but does not laugh at prostitution”. On the other hand, it strictly abides by Buddhist regulations. It can use its lower body to give itself the greatest indulgence, and on the other hand, it uses its upper body to abide by the piety in its heart. Here you can see the normal life of the “transvestite” who discriminates against other countries and contacts with the people around them normally. You can also see many “black pearls” clearly mark their prices. They can relax and be short-term couples with “white swans”. Their conjugal love is no less than that of normal couples. You can see the later and more lively “* *” all kinds of women and men indulge here.

On the other hand, they have great respect for gods. No matter in what, you will see the statues enshrined. They also have great respect for monks. Women are not allowed to touch their bodies. They can build their own museums or monasteries of gods for their religious beliefs, and worship the relics of eminent monks. Their devotion to their beliefs amazed onlookers. The two are extremely contradictory things, but they exist and grow together in Thailand.

Similarly, you can find extremely quiet white and snowy beaches in this country. You can give yourself the most luxurious vacation enjoyment with good money. You can have good privacy and enjoy the sunshine, sand, blue sky and sea. There is no dispute with the world. The world belongs to you. You can also have fun with everyone in a simple way and enjoy the beautiful scenery under the gorgeous sun umbrella. Although it is noisy, happiness like your heart is also a kind of enjoyment.

Thailand has a noisy side and an elegant and quiet side. It has the simplicity of “Bangkok Bag” and the luxury of “Bangkok Bag”. It will make you feel at first sight that it is just a cloth bag. However, if you look at the exaggerated bow carefully, you will find that the inside is exquisite in workmanship and perfect in details. It is really the “LV” in the cloth bag.

The Second Impression of Thailand-Thai Transvestite

When it comes to Thailand, almost everyone will mention the Thai transvestite. I have seen many photos of the transvestite on the Internet. There are always indecent photos. The excited expressions of the men still make me remember deeply. Therefore, the word transvestite is equivalent to pornography and perversion.

However, this trip to Thailand changed my narrow thinking. When night fell, we followed the tour guide to Pattaya’s “Tiffany Transvestite Show”. As soon as we got off the bus, we saw dazzling neon lights. The door was full of a group of people who were in turmoil. From time to time, we saw and heard transvestites with money in their hands greeting us to take photos together. The tour guide told us that we would come out to take photos later, so we followed the manager to the first row of the theater, where you could clearly see the eyelashes of the people on the stage. When the stage music sounded, The magnificent stage is constantly updated with the change of plot, The costumes of the transvestites on the stage also change with the plot changes, Their clothes look very gorgeous at first sight, and at the same time they also pay attention to the perfection of details. The clothing will be displayed according to the characteristics of each country. It makes you feel like this is a visual event, Although they are known to perform on the oral cavity, But their accuracy still makes me think that this song is from them. They performed the latest songs from various countries all night. In the performance, they showed the traditional Thai ethnic costume show in the form of large-scale song and dance epics. Imitation of mainstream Broadway large-scale songs and dances and the most classic songs in various countries, in time, You were,,, All, let you be in time so that the viewer can enjoy the beauty with the music. Watching them perform in high heels for an hour makes me feel that the artist’s name can also be suitable for them. I am moved by their best efforts and meticulousness. Their charming and noble, soft and graceful movements make me ashamed as a woman. They are really more women than women.

The transvestite is a unique culture in Thailand, They turned themselves into transvestites for various reasons. After listening to their manager’s introduction, They will take photos with viewers in the program space. The photos taken will be divided into the transvestites who did not come out to take photos, Anyone who wants to join them in the show, And the theatre will carry out the necessary training, They will spare an hour to rehearse. If there are new plays, they will spend more time. The theater will take them to other countries to perform from time to time. They will also use high fees to maintain their appearance. Maybe you will come here 10 years later and find that the years seem to have stagnated on them. Tiffany Song and Dance Troupe Held “Miss Tiffany World” Contest. The competition is held in March every year and the “Miss Tiffany World” competition is held in March every year. It attracts transvestites from different countries to participate. They use their more noble manners than women to welcome some aspects of respect.

At the end of the show, We still can’t contain our feelings, One after another took out 40 plants to take photos with them. Ha ha, but most of the photos were taken out because of too much excitement. During the photo taking, I was moved by a special person we called “Barbie Doll”. When we were looking for change around, he (she) warmly greeted us “No money, come here”. At this moment, I really forgot that they were different from us.

In Thailand, transvestites are not discriminated against, In Thailand, you will inadvertently find that transvestites actually live among us. They also live an ordinary life and make a living on their own hands. I have seen them warmly receive tourists in the water market and greet us on board and off the ship last week. Here I prefer to call them human beings rather than transvestites. They are just a group of people who have the same worldly desires as us and live on their own efforts.

Golden Triangle Residual Army

Golden Triangle Residual Army

This feeling started when I visited the Golden Triangle Folk Custom Village. Once, the Golden Triangle in my impression seemed like this: in the dusk, countless poppies swayed gently; The Wa people’s wooden drums sounded slowly and deeply. Pieces of bamboo forests and some mysterious rhythm, ups and downs in the night breeze; Crowds of crows roared and flew to the depths of the dusk… making people feel melancholy, confused and sad.

However, I see a more worrying scene here. This is a forgotten and distorted history. This is a sad and unforgettable story. A group of deliberately forgotten Chinese. Their victory in a foreign country is still not allowed by heaven and earth. They were defeated in a foreign country and only died. They died in foreign countries and could only rot with vegetation.

Of course, this Golden Triangle Folk Custom Village is not the real “Golden Triangle”. The real Golden Triangle is far away from the northern border of Thailand and borders Myanmar and Laos. The Golden Triangle Folk Custom Village is only a display area. Even so, looking at the whole display park really makes people feel an unspeakable taste.

Because, until today I didn’t know there was such a story. In 1949, when the last Kuomintang-Communist peace talks broke down and Chiang Kai-shek retreated to Taiwan, those Kuomintang troops that could not follow to Taiwan became remnants of the army, left behind in the mainland, either incorporated and reformed, disbanded on their own or wiped out. The fate of most of the disabled troops is generally the same, with the only exception being the main character of the story, the 93rd Division of the National Army.

As liberation approached, the 93rd Division of the National Army, which was stationed in the last line of defense on the southwest mainland, was like a landslide under the surprise attack of the People’s Liberation Army from Sichuan and Guangxi at the same time. It was torn apart and fled south one after another. He crossed the border and finally landed in the “Golden Triangle” located in Thailand and bordering Myanmar and Laos. A line of short translation: “Your department… will solve the problem by itself. “These remnants of the army has become a home not stateless world refugees.

More than 60 years have passed, and these people have become motherless children, living in foreign countries like weeds under the auspices of others. In order to survive, he fought with the Thai Communist Party and Myanmar successively for the Thai government and reluctantly obtained the right to live in Thailand. In order to survive, even had to plant “beautiful flower of evil”-heroin.

There are also more than 600,000 people in this group of people who have multiplied so far. Until now, only one third have acquired Thai government nationality. And most of them have no nationality. He has no nationality and can only live within the scope designated by the Thai government. He cannot go out to receive education, employment, medical treatment, etc. His life is extremely miserable. At some point, the narrator in the folk customs village had red eyes and tears seemed to flow out.

Following her, through a small door, an elegant cloister appeared in front of us, with white walls and black tiles, with a light Jiangnan flavor, very different from Thai dwellings. Along the cloister, pictures were neatly posted. Therefore, in this cloister, which is less than 100 meters long, we revisited the history and re-examined the past of our previous generation or even the previous generation. In the tour guide’s narration, we seemed to return to the war-torn era and slowly lifted the veil of the Golden Triangle and the 93rd Division.

The Golden Triangle Folk Custom Village we visited is actually a microcosm of “Meisle”. After visiting the cloister and the * * room, bullet depot, cell and death row cell behind it, we saw their shabby residence-it was more shabby than all our imagination of poverty. Facing their poverty, we were all shocked.

In the folk village, the story of the disabled army we heard ended with the following: some of the descendants of this team acquired Thai nationality, while others lived as refugees in Mesla. People in Mesla have no nationality, only refugee certificates, and can never leave the mountain. Only with the “mobile card” and “work card” indicating the route can they go down the mountain to make a living in this golden triangle folk village. They cannot leave this exhibition area yet. Thai police can arrest them as soon as they leave the gate.

At the end of the tour, the guide asked us to sit down and have some tea. The tea aroma is rich, but no one takes a seat. Everyone’s heart is heavy. It is said that in the Golden Triangle region, in Mesla, the north, is the only direction for all tombs. There, there is their great motherland. The disabled army does not know politics and only hopes that the motherland will be unified and prosperous, so that they can have a way out.

“Reunification of the Motherland, Prosperity and Prosperity” is the last slogan I saw in the Golden Triangle Folk Village. On the left is the Chinese flag and on the right is the Kuomintang flag.
