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

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

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

The average cost is 5000 yuan, excluding shopping.

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

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

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

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

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

This trip is:

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

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

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

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

Transportation:

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

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

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

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

Attached is Bangkok Traffic Transfer Map

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

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

Riverside Night Market

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

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

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

South China Peng Railway Station

Bangkok to Chiang Mai train:

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

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

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

Chiang Mai Railway Station

Chiang Mai Transportation:

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

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

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

Chiang Mai to Pai District:

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

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

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

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

Chiang Mai to Koh Samet:

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

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

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

Luo Yong – Koh Samet Island

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

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

Aowangduan Beach

Transportation on Koh Samet Island:

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

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

Flame Show, also known as Fire Dance Show

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

Fire Dance Show

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

Pattaya:

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

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

Pattaya to Bangkok Transportation:

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

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

Eat!

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

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

Watergate Chicken Rice

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

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

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

Shopping and tax refund:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

After we watched the sunset at sea, we landed. The sunset was not amazing, but also brought me a little regret. (But this regret finally became an wonder in my journey @!) I thought they would take us to the sightseeing platform to watch the sunset probably because there was not enough time. At that time, the sun should have disappeared when we landed at sea and climbed to the sightseeing platform. So we just looked at it at sea. It’s not amazing.

The amazing white temple in Chiang Rai

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The amazing white temple.

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

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

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

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

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

The trees were covered with ghost heads.

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

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

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

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

The beautiful white temple kept me pressing the shutter.

Tourists here are all impressed by this beautiful building.

White and spotless

The white is amazing.

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

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

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

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

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

Very mighty, very imposing.

Exquisite white dragons guard the entrance of the hall.

Every place in the White Temple is so exquisite.

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

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

Exquisite Memorial Arch

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

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

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

Such a beautiful place is still free of charge.

In addition to admiration or admiration

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

Shoot while walking, shoot while walking.

Every place is extremely exquisite in workmanship.

You can’t turn back from that road.

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

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

Every place in the White Temple is carefully done.

This building is for tourists to pray for blessings.

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

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

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

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

This is the side of a golden toilet.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The toilet is resplendent and magnificent.

The splendid golden toilet

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

Beautiful, or beautiful

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

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

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

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

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

Take another reflection of the White Temple,

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

# Micro Travel Notes # Avoid Cold Phuket Island

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

Pattaya’s Unique Style

Pattaya’s Unique Style

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Overview

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Swalin dwellings

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bangkok Langman Airport

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

Holiday Inn Onan Beach

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

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

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

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

Swalin dwellings

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

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

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

The Different Style in the Pastoral

The Different Style in the Pastoral

Garrison in the reinforced concrete jungle all the year round, you can yearn for such scenery: green grass is like shade, flowers are like brocade, and you lie comfortably on a white rocking chair. Bathed in the setting sun in spring, the squeak of windmill leaves rang in my ears, and the fragrance of lavender drifted in the breeze. Boys and girls brimming with youthful atmosphere are playing in the flowers, and the quiet and warm atmosphere surrounds the body and mind… Don’t think this is a fantasy, we have had such an afternoon in Thailand.

After five days in Thailand, the non-stop tour made me feel somewhat tired, and the visual fatigue also made me lose my enthusiasm for taking photos. The high temperature of over 30 degrees and the scorching afternoon sun made me sleepy in the tour bus. I don’t know when the car stopped in what. The strong local flavor stimulated my already numb nerves. I was injected with marijuana like a drug addict and immediately refreshed.

Silver lake grape yard is more like an exotic garden. There are several pairs of exquisite wooden shoes under the Dutch windmill, with some dreamy colors in the backlight. I asked Ha Mei and Xiao Shuai to sit in wooden shoes and take photos. Look, they look like “princess and prince, live a happy life from now on”

Beside the blue-purple lavender, there are unknown red pollen flowers, and the golden sunflowers open their smiling faces in the face of the sun, as if welcoming our exotic visitors.

A Wang Lvshui sprinkled coolness into the wind. Between the two heart-shaped wreaths of red and white in the lawn, the letter LOVE looked very romantic. I suggested that Xiao Shuai put the wedding here in the future. He showed vacant eyes, “I don’t know who to marry yet”! (dizzy! I didn’t say to let him get married now)

The tour car drove us through the fields, the spring breeze blowing gently, and the scorching sun seemed to soften a lot. In a row of small white wooden fences, patches of flowers are swaying. A small rocking chair attracted me. The iron chairs on both sides of the rocking chair were full of red flowers in full bloom. Two colorful parrots (fake) decorated the white rocking chair with colorful colors.

The companions of the same trade rushed up with cheers. The five people crowded in rocking chairs with happy shapes, and their laughter drifted on the beautiful land. I did not squeeze over to join the joyous procession, but watched and felt quietly. Although this vineyard is not a world scenic spot, there is no historic site for a thousand years, and even no information can be found on Baidu, the leisurely and relaxed it brings me is especially unforgettable. In the past, when I went on a trip, I always came and went in a hurry looking for places of interest, historic sites, mountains and great rivers. Did I ignore what? In this rural area full of local flavor, looking at these happy companions, I am adjusting my travel mentality. There is no need to deliberately pursue which places to see, and there is no need to always walk in a hurry. Just find such a small village, stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city, stay away from the swords and swords of the exit field, stay away from the traffic crowd of places of interest, live quietly for a few days, relax the tight nerves, and breathe out the dirt in the lungs. Although people drift on the road, their hearts perch in the calm harbor. I don’t know if this is the true meaning of traveling, but I know how to travel in the future.

It’s time to leave the vineyard. The next trip is the water market and the dinner at the seaside restaurant. I’m afraid I won’t be able to rest until midnight. Ha Mei asked me with concern if I was tired, but I was like a car leaving the gas station and set off at full speed towards the next goal.

A Visit to Thailand-Mr. LV

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tsunami Leaves Soul Phi Phi

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pattaya Night

Pattaya Night

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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