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.

A Visit to Thailand-A Smiling Country

I was delighted to receive the notice to go to Thailand. Thailand has always been at the top of my itinerary. I didn’t expect to realize my trip to Thailand so soon. I have seen the information of Thailand. The Grand Palace of Thailand, the blue sea of Thailand and the fruits of Thailand all make me yearn for it.

We came to Thailand in thick winter clothes, The oncoming heat wave, It caused us to strip and change clothes one after another. When we walked out of Mangu Airport, the first smiling face to greet us was our tour guide, Pan Peter. Pan Peter is Chinese. They have stayed in Thailand for three generations and married Thai women. In his words, this is fate. He considerately helped us prepare two boxes of exquisite cakes. Seeing those cakes made us appetite. On the way, I saw from time to time the portrait of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. He was the ninth king of the Chakuri dynasty, From these portraits, we can feel the love of the Thai people for King Bhumibol. According to Peter’s introduction, King Bhumibol planted all kinds of crops and animals in his palace and carried out continuous experiments. When the products were successful, they were popularized to the people. King Bhumibol personally enjoyed the people. Therefore, in Thailand, the royal family is respected and it is taboo to talk about all kinds of news about the royal family.

Thailand means “land of freedom”. In its 800-year history, Thailand is proud that it is the only country in Southeast Asia that has not been colonized. It has its own language and unique culture. The local Chinese are deeply integrated into the life of Thais and will not change Thai culture because of the large number of Chinese.

What impressed me most when I first arrived in Thailand was the Thai smile. When I was sweeping around with the camera, All kinds of smiles are reflected in the camera. They won’t get angry with your camera, But to put down the work at hand, I smiled, and when I focused on taking photos, I kept stepping back until I hit someone. Only then did I find a gentleman sitting behind me. He and his wife looked at me with a smile without any hint. When I was full of apologies, I suddenly found that smile was the common language in the world. He understood my language and I also understood it. When I danced and bought pomegranate juice with the peddler, the peddler looked at me with a smile all the time. I wonder if he understood what I meant by saying he was handsome. Ha ha. When I take photos of various beautiful women on the street, passers-by on the side will always smile and watch me jump up and down with tolerance. . . . . .

Thailand’s folk culture and the temptation of the West have been continuously integrated here. Thailand is full of resplendent and magnificent temples and pagodas with high sharp corners. There are exquisite and beautiful Buddha statues, stone carvings and paintings everywhere. There are many temptations and the most sincere smiles. This is my first impression of Thailand. It is a fascinating country. In this country, smile is the best business card, which can open everyone’s heart.

Traveling companion

The trip to Thailand and Myanmar was the first time that I walked out of the country. I was alone, with an uneasy heart, and encouraged myself to embark on the journey. No traveling companion, the original intention! This trip originally originated from an appointment message released by Yododo Shanghai travelers. The general itinerary depends on her. She gave her careful advice on the round-trip air ticket and is still grateful. As early as nine months before my trip, I took the opportunity to go to Shanghai to watch the World Expo and made a special appointment… I didn’t think about it, but I finally became a stranger! Perhaps it is because I don’t often surf the Internet that she has been neglected, perhaps it is because the number of people who meet exceeds her online needs to choose, or her itinerary has changed in what? There are too many possibilities… there is no way to guess, in short, there is no induction, no tacit understanding of meeting colleagues, and I don’t want to force or drag down others because I have no overseas travel experience, different flight times, poor English and many unfavorable factors, so I am separated inexplicably! Next, I had to clench my teeth and crustily skin of head to face all the travel matters alone: regain English, apply for a visa, draw up a specific itinerary… I went to Thailand and Myanmar alone, especially in a relatively closed country like Myanmar with inconvenient transportation and communication, to complete my free trip.

The pleasure of traveling alone is that as long as you take your steps, there will always be some unexpected surprises waiting for you ahead! As the journey unfolded, I got to know many traveling companions all the way, ranging from days to hours, giving me warmth, happiness, help and encouragement, brightening my journey like pearls and enriching my journey experience!

Unexpected encounter in the same city: Guangzhou Airport

On January 27, under the careful arrangement and care of friends, the four-day relaxed and casual tour of Guangzhou ended. The introduction of this beautiful prelude started the prelude of “Good Luck Accompanying Thailand and Myanmar”. !

As soon as I arrived at Guangzhou Airport, I met Duma in the same city unexpectedly. The world is so wonderful: the two people who did not know each other in the east and west of the city, but met in a different place, did not feel unfamiliar at all. They were like old friends who had not seen each other for many years. They had the same heart, similar temperament and extremely smooth communication… Duma’s American boyfriend Jim had come to Thailand first, settled everything and received us directly from Bangkok’s Suwannabe Airport to Ayuthaya! Because of this bond, I omitted the twists and turns, saved time and energy, gained friendship, and gained a happy and rich Ayuthaya trip!

Ayuthaya was the designated place on my trip. I couldn’t help it in the morning. Before Duma and Jim got up and had a full breakfast in Sansook Place, I went to walk alone in the ancient city. The former royal city has long since lost its glory, but its lasting appeal still exists: an ancient temple with ruins everywhere is magnificent and huge in scale, telling the style of the past and the vicissitudes of life it has gone through. The ancient pagodas of Thai, Burmese and Khmer styles are exquisite in skill, graceful in shape and stand proudly. A mottled and incomplete ancient Buddha is still calm and serene, with insight into all things in the world and acceptance of people’s worship and worship… The prosperous ancient city is quiet and deep.

After returning on foot in the evening, Duma and Jim have prepared a sumptuous dinner and invited friends from the ancient cities of Thailand, Britain and Argentina to stage an international dinner party full of family-like warm atmosphere in the small and elegant Sansook Place. After the meal, Gina, from England, who set up shop in Ayuthaya, drove her van and took us for a ride, went to night markets and went to bars to listen to songs. I happened to meet Thai NO1 male singer in the bar. Duma and I played the role of fans once. Duma couldn’t find a thick sign pen, otherwise we had to ask him to sign his skirt! Ha…… Let’s take a picture as a souvenir! The pop songs sung in the bar are gentle and dynamic. Under the catalysis of glasses of beer, a line of people couldn’t help beating the beat to the music and twisted their posture and danced manly beside the narrow wine table… while they were still not satisfied with the wine, they simply quit the bar and entered Di! Oh, my god! ! The huge horn and the strong rhythm, although I covered my ears desperately, still felt that my “heart” was going to be shaken out… until 3 o’clock in the morning, before they dispersed. If Jone hadn’t suffered a leg injury, he would have sung “Sleepless Tonight” that night! Ha ha……

Location of Foreign Compatriots: Bangkok’s Zhatuzako Weekend Market

On the morning of January 29, after renting a car for a tour around the periphery of the ancient city, I bid farewell to Duma, Jim, Diego and owner Att and took a bus back to Bangkok.

On Sundays, the ChatuChak Weekend Market is near the long-distance passenger station. On the way, Meet Chinese-Alvin and I began to talk, Alvin went to college in Bangkok, My parents came to Thailand to settle in Chiang Mai in their early years. At the moment, he is going to ChatuChak to meet a friend of his. The two talked about the current situation in Thailand and China all the way… Seeing that it was inconvenient for me to visit ChatuChak with a heavy traveling bag, Alvin looked around to help me find the parcel office. However, there were no hotels, inns and large department stores nearby. Finally, a small express company was found in ChatuChak A area. In fact, there had never been any foreign goods stored here. At that time, there were three Chinese students who worked odd jobs here every weekend. When they saw that they were Chinese compatriots who came to their homes, they were very happy to provide help.

The ChatuChak Weekend Market, the largest free trade market in Southeast Asia, is very large. There are 10,000 shops in 27 regions, Commodities from all over Thailand: flowers and trees, pets, ready-to-wear clothing, fabrics, jewelry, handicrafts, antiques and everything, even if it takes up a day, it is difficult to travel all over every corner… Alvin reminds me from time to time to remember some landmarks in case I get lost. I still feel uneasy when I leave and leave my phone number for a rainy day before leaving.

Rows of shops full of creative and highly national articles have bewitched my desire to buy, although it is clear that I have already set up a full set of beautiful eyes for my small nest after careful search. Although determined to: gradually extinguish the floating and sinking of things in the sea, looking for things and chasing things and loving things; Although I have repeatedly reminded myself that this is only the beginning of the trip and cannot add “burden” to the future! Also really faced with several “exquisite materials, unique shapes, fine workmanship, affordable” things to stop with pain! However, in the end, he was unable to withstand the heart of “falling in love at first sight” and could not ignore the friendly and friendly attitude of the Chinese merchant compatriots to meet and “shoot” the game. ! Perhaps only when one is in a foreign country and changes one’s angle can one truly understand the meaning of the word “motherland” to a person and deeply feel the kind of kinship in which blood dissolves in water among compatriots.

After returning to the express company to pick up the bag, the students returned Yanjing and Huang Manling warmly received them. Seeing that the day was drawing to a close and they had finished their work at hand, they sat down to chat with them. They are Thai majors in a university in Guangxi, Two years of domestic study, Two years of study in Thailand, Come to ChatuChak every weekend to work and study, practice language… When talking about my night’s residence, He began to work again, Inspired by the concern of Thailand’s boss and wife of shop-owner, she called Kaosan Kaoshan Road, a backpacker gathering area, to find an empty guest room. However, she decided to let me follow them to stay near the university and leave my heavy clothes and items that I didn’t need at that time for more than ten days free of charge until I returned to Bangkok from Myanmar and retrieved them before boarding the plane to return home.

In the dusk, Gui Yanjing and Huang Manling came to CHANDRAKASEM RAJABHAT UNIVERSITY (an institution affiliated to the Royal College of Thailand) where they studied, walked through the campus and surrounding residential areas to watch the students practice street dance. Feel the life of Thailand’s streets; Please ask the two students to taste the recommended special diet. The next morning, it is another experience to return to the main road along the long and quiet streets and lanes and take a free bus to the Grand Palace.

Place of Contingency: Mandalay Inva Ancient City

On the morning of February 1, looking at Grace, a British girl who came with Yangon, who was asleep, I couldn’t bear to wake her up and quietly left the room. It seems too luxurious to charter a bus to visit alone! Fortunately, MaharMuni Paya Mahamuni Pagoda, Sagaing Shijie Ancient City, Inwa Inwa Ancient City and Amarapura Amarabra Ancient City can all be reached by bus, so please ask the inn clerk to write several place names and bus locations on a piece of paper in Burmese characters and then set off! !

If you go to Zeigyo Zeqiao by bus, you have to ask the way. It is much more convenient to present this Burmese road! The friendship, enthusiasm, simplicity and kindness of Burmese have moved me all the way and made me deeply moved. ! If he is not clear about the problem, he will find another person to help you! One of MaharMuni’s aunts took me by the hand to get off the bus, cross the road and then pointed me in the direction. The elder sister of Amarapura ancient city even put down her rice bowl, accompanied me across the road, waited for ten minutes at the roadside, explained to the drivers and passengers, waved away… heartfelt gratitude and sigh! ! !

The schedule for this day is a beautiful mistake! After MaharMuni Paya, I went to Amarapura first. Amarapura is famous for “the beautiful sunset on Uben Bridge”. It’s still early to watch the sunset. I don’t want to give up Inwa. I can only miss the “Uben Sunset” on this day and start again the next day! Walk out of Amarapura and take a bus to Inwa. There are a lot of people returning home from the city. The inside and top of the car are full of people, and the rear of the car wall is also full of people… In Myanmar, I have traveled all kinds of transportation in Myanmar from south to north and from north to south: planes, trains, buses, large and small ships, carriages, ox carts, and three-wheeled side-to-side bicycles, but the most impressive and interesting thing is the pickup truck I took on this day! I personally experienced a “deadly” bus in Myanmar! Ha ha! !

Overcrowding, yes! No room? No! ! They enthusiastically vacated a space, Goods piled up on the cross plate at the rear of the hitchhiker, I am stepping on a basket full of goods with my feet. With both hands tightly pulling the railing of the car canopy, the body hung outside the car… no longer strong, gradually soft sunlight came directly, the long white towel wrapped around the head and neck was flying up and down with the wind… the people on the car needless to say, the residents along the way also pointed at me and laughed straight at me, but I was not shy or shy at all, ha ha, just like flying, only feeling very “bright and clear”!

It takes ten minutes to get to Inwa Gucheng Ferry at the intersection. The last bus to find out how to return to the city is at 7 o’clock in the evening. No one is in a hurry. He replenished the water in the roadside shops and walked along the boulevard. At this moment, a TUTU carrying oriental faces passed by and brought me five Korean friends. There were no other tourists arriving at the ferry. I did not ask why they arrived later than Inwa. I decided that they were “providence”! Accompanied by Korean friends, I took a carriage to watch the beautiful pastoral scenery in the sunset. I traveled to Bagaya Kyaung Teak Temple and Maha Aungmye Bonzan Maha Aungmei Temple scattered in the countryside deep in the ancient city, and felt the vicissitudes of time and the vicissitudes of the ancient city, which is still simple, natural, quiet and peaceful. Accompanied by Korean friends, they took their TUTU to return to the inn smoothly, so that they did not miss Mandalay’s puppet show at night. Accompanied by South Korean friends, I agreed to meet again at the Bagan Inwa Hotel on February 3. The three days of the Chinese Year-the trip to Bagan and Yinlai Lake was very happy and worry-free! Accompanied by Korean friends, they received unexpected gifts several months later. I have kept in touch with my Korean friends and missed each other so far……..

Looking back, I still feel a little wonderful. Apart from Cheong, who knows a little Chinese, we have not been able to communicate with each other. The third language, English, is also not good. With a few words, English words, expressions and gestures, we have all understood each other’s meaning. Ha ha! It seems that language, race, nationality, gender and age are not obstacles. As long as you have a smiling face, a sincere attitude, appropriate speech and behavior, an open mind, a relaxed and casual way of communication, your traveling companion will be by your side at any time!

Unestablished traveling companions and uncertain journeys give us the possibility of “meeting unique people and things” while “going to the same scenic spots, taking the same photos and tasting the same delicious food”. Let our journey be richer, let our mind be more open, let us appreciate everything life gives us after we have our own journey story! Know that “life is like a reverse journey, and I am also a pedestrian”! ! So as to face and fall in love with your existing life again with a more calm and calm attitude! This may be the era of world unification. There is no need to travel and see all over the world. It is necessary to travel far away.

Travel companion, journey, life… everything follows the fate, cherishes the fate, does not climb! !

Phuket Island’s Great Year

Phuket Island’s Great Year

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

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

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

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

January 1, 2011

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

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

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

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

Phi Phi Island’s Diving Tour

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

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

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

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

360-page Handbook for Divers in Open Waters

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

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

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

Two coaches, Yunshan and Joe

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

Jump down from the ship and enter another space.

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

Big turtles are seen at a depth of 15 meters.

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

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

Clownfish, Clown in Red Coral

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

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

Thailand Self-help Tour (Preparation Before Travel)

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

E Travel Network Forum Address:

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

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

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

6. Preparation of Accompanying Items

Expense budget: (four people in one line)

I. Transportation:

Or from high to low according to the ranking of evaluation, and then at the appropriate price, look at the specific evaluation and pictures of the residents.
