Phuket’s daredevil

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 It is too outdated for me to lie on the beach chair in the sun.

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

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

This minibus is Phuket’s main means of transportation

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

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

Phuket Island Navigation Center

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

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

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

Imagine Thailand

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Amphawa Floating Market, Bangkok

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

Travel Tips: Usually, people will make the trip of Amphawa Water Market and Maeklong Railway Market on the same day a one-day tour.

Transportation:

There is a bus to Amphawa at the South Bus Station on Minivan:

Take the BTS to Victory Monument (N3) Exit 4) and you can see the ticket booth of the Mini-Van to Ampava under the overpass.

Opening hours: Friday, Saturday and Sunday 3:00pm-late at night

Ayutthaya Klong Sa Bua Floating Market

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

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

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

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

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

Pickpockets: on buses, in public places

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

2 Doodle Car Fraud

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

Four: Taxi Fraud

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

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

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

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

At each light rail station, there is a ticket vending machine, which only accepts coins of 1 baht, 5 baht and 10 baht, and can also change at the service desk. In addition, light rail transportation network maps can be obtained free of charge at all light rail ticketing booths.

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

7. You can also consider buying One Day Pass, 130B, with unlimited rides on that day.

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

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

Trains: There are about 6 trains a day from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, which are divided into ordinary trains, express trains and express trains. It takes about 15 hours for ordinary cars and 12 hours for express and express trains.

Take about 60 meters to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (New Airport) to exchange Thai baht (5 methods) 1) Direct exchange of Thai baht at the Bank of China in China can directly purchase Thai baht, but not all business halls or at any time. You need to make an appointment in advance and bring your ID card and passport with a good visa. ICBC seems to be more cost-effective than BOC. 2) Take RMB to Thailand’s Exchange Counter for Bangkok. There are Exchange exchange counters everywhere, so there is no need to worry about not using Thai baht in Thailand. 3) Take US dollars to Bangkok’s Exchange cabinet for exchange. As the exchange rate for US dollars to Thai baht is good, In addition, Bangkok has Exchange everywhere, which is quite a convenient way to exchange money, and you can exchange as much as you can while playing. Anyway, it is no difference to take back US dollars when they are not used up. Compared with RMB, US dollars do not occupy much space in your wallet, and there is no ATM handling fee. It is also a very popular way. But unless you have dollar cash, Otherwise, you will inevitably be charged two handling fees (RMB USD, USD Thai Baht). If you plan to exchange RMB for US dollars, you will be stripped of three layers of skin (RMB USD, USD Thai Baht, and USD RMB that cannot be used up). As for the handling fees exchanged in this way, is it not cost-effective? Applicable object: I have US dollar cash, and I want to exchange as much as I want. 4) The exchange rate of “RMB for Thai baht” of Super RichSuper Rich, which brought RMB to Thailand, can be said to be the best of all money exchange institutions at present, but the disadvantage is that there are not many strongholds (compared with Exchange, the more widely known strongholds are BigC, Chit Lom MRT Station, Kaoshan, Silom and Phrom Phong MRT Station). Students who are going to change money should bring photocopies of their passports. The two that went more: in the alley across the street from Centerworld, the alley that went left after the overpass of Centerworld in the afternoon. See the orange sign ~ You can also see the green sign Super Rich from the alley of this Li Haiquan seafood store diagonally opposite Central World. In addition, there is an orange sign Super Rich on Chit Lom MRT station, but the exchange rate is not very good. Bangkok’s best exchange rate store-Green SUPER RICH Store is located at BTS Chit Lom Station, opposite Central World. It will not be hard to find. There are also many foreigners who will come here to exchange Thai baht. Remember to bring their passports for the store manager to check. Chiang Mai’s Best Exchange Rate Store-SUPER RICH Address: 34/4 Loi Kroh Road, A. Muang Chiang Mai 50100, Thailand. Friends who bring RMB or US dollars can change here! On Loi Khor Rd, the ancient city is 1/3 of Changkang Road. This road is a one-way street, so if you drive a motorcycle, the exchange rate is good on the right hand side of the road. 3. Thai Baht Exchange Frequently Asked Questions and Answers 1. Where should I exchange Thai Baht before departure? Do you need to exchange small bank notes? A: Bank of China and ICBC can directly purchase Thai baht without exchanging small banknotes, because most banks in China only have large Thai baht, and small banknotes are not easy to settle and small in quantity. 2. After arriving in Thailand, how to turn large banknotes into small banknotes? A: Find a convenience store at the airport, buy something casually, or buy a local mobile phone card as soon as you get off the plane, and open it. 3. Can I withdraw cash directly with UnionPay card in Thailand? Cash withdrawal exchange rate and handling fee. A: Cash can be withdrawn directly. The exchange rate is currently the highest among all exchange methods. The handling fee is charged according to the overseas cash withdrawal of the card issuing bank. For example, the overseas cash withdrawal amount of the Agricultural Bank is 1% + 12 yuan. Since September last year, all Thai banks have charged a handling fee for the cash withdrawal of UnionPay cards, each of which is 50B. 4. Is there a handling fee for swiping UnionPay cards in Thailand? Can I swipe UnionPay cards anywhere? A: There is no handling fee. Major shopping malls such as Central World and Siam Square can swipe UnionPay cards. The exchange rate is the same as that of taking Thai baht directly. (If the card you want to swipe has both UnionPay and MasterCard or VISA and other what dual-channel cards on it, the card reader will give priority to the identification of Visa or MasterCard channels) 5. Is there a private exchange point in Thailand to exchange Hong Kong dollars? What is the exchange rate? A: Yes, for example, Exchange Cabinet and Super Rich are quite good exchange points. Some exchange rates are even higher than those in China.

“Romantic Journey, Aftertaste Life”-Thailand’s Collective Wedding

In the experience parade, the last day is a Thai style collective wedding jointly organized by Thailand National Tourism Administration and Chinese portrait photography society. This is the most expected day after I know the whole trip, because I heard that it will be a grand royal wedding, and the wedding site preparation cost more than 1 million yuan, which can be expected to be grand! And I’m particularly curious about the traditional Thai wedding, and then I can look forward to my wedding in the future…

The venue for the group wedding is Pattaya-Nongnooch Tropical Garden, a Thai rural leisure resort not far from downtown Pattaya. It is said that there will be some Thai folk performances and elephant performances at ordinary times, as well as traditional wedding ceremonies and shaving ceremonies. It can be regarded as a leisure place where Thai national culture is displayed regularly. However, as the highlight of the day was the group wedding, we regret not to see these performances, hehe. . The wedding ceremony started in the afternoon and we were required to attend in formal attire. Before that, the large army had shorts and slippers every day. Today, all of them were dressed like changed individuals, and some of them were not used to it. A total of 46 couples, all from China, took part in this collective wedding. Joining hands with their partners to meet in such an exotic traditional Thai wedding is really quite in line with the theme of this activity-“a romantic journey, a lifetime of aftertaste!” “

Like all weddings, the bride and groom will always be the most eye-catching wedding protagonists on the wedding day, especially the bride! After some elaborate dressing, changing into traditional Thai hairstyles and clothes, and wearing exquisite jewelry, she is the most beautiful Thai bride today. There is also the host of the wedding (the beautiful woman of the Thai Travel Bureau who is our colleague this time) who is also the object of everyone’s competition for photos. This dress, this headdress and this makeup are all too beautiful! It is really enviable, jealous and hateful!

Thailand’s traditional wedding is full of strong Buddhist flavor. The wedding is a Buddhist ceremony at the beginning. Eminent monks chant sutras and pray for the new couple. The whole process is solemn but lively. Although I didn’t understand what they said about what, everyone on the scene folded their hands and the pious expression really made people feel the same way! With such blessings, we silently make a promise of love, and we will be happy forever in our life! After the chanting, the eminent monk sprinkled water on the new couple and baptized them, wishing them a long life together!

The end of the Buddhist ceremony is the beginning of the formal wedding ceremony. According to Thai customs at that time, monks or elders of both sides must wear “double happiness gauze circles” for the groom and bride. Shuangxi yarn circle is also called auspicious yarn circle. It is made up of a white yarn head and tail tied into a yarn circle and tied with a water bell, which is worn on the head of the new couple. These yarn circles must not be cut with scissors and will not be untied by the elders until the watering ceremony is over.

According to Thai wedding customs, the groom and bride will hold duck eggs and glutinous rice with their hands folded, of which duck eggs represent the early birth of a baby and glutinous rice symbolizes prosperity. There is also a flowerpot for connecting water under the palm of the two men’s hands. After wearing the double happiness gauze ring, the guests attending the wedding will also sprinkle water and bless the new couple in sequence. At the end of the ceremony, the elders will take off the double happiness gauze circle for the groom and bride, end the watering ceremony, and the wedding will come to an end.

In order to show sincerity, the groom must impress the bride with lithe and graceful music, dance and exquisite gifts when marrying the bride. However, we didn’t see this paragraph on that day either. Write it down here for everyone to imagine. Ha ha, I think the traditional Thai wedding should be several times more lively than what we saw on that day.

Thailand is rich in tourism resources, The weddings of the post-80s and 90s prefer romance and innovation, Come to Thailand to take wedding photos, spend honeymoons, Pattaya must be the first choice, This should also be the reason why the organizers held this collective wedding. From the resplendent grand palace to the clear blue seascape resort, Appreciate the scenery of Thailand, enjoy romantic holidays, take foreign wedding photos… From now on, you can have one more memory-hold a unique Thai wedding, or invite relatives and friends to witness this wonderful moment together, and come to a family wedding tour by the way. Ha ha, leave laughter and promise!

[Recommendation] Entering Thailand Begins with Suwannabe

Entering Thailand Begins with Suwannabe

Apart from the humidity and heat, the turmoil and religion, and all kinds of legends about the airport, I can say that I know nothing about Thailand, although it is so close to me. Until the departure, there are still many, many unknowns. As a result, with those question marks, I almost hurried on my trip to Thailand.

The plane took off from Xiamen Gaoqi Airport and soared into the sky. Just after the climbing period, the sea was already underneath. The trees and houses on both sides of the river can be seen faintly, and the sea in the middle is not as endless as imagined. It is quiet and has a deep blue color. From time to time, irregular white lines pass over it and meander forward. As the height of the plane became higher and higher, I saw the rolling white clouds, jogging among the white clouds like clouds of waves.

When the wings of the plane spread out, I suddenly came to my senses. The plane has arrived over Bangkok and began to slide down. He streaked across the numerous buildings of different heights and landed at Suwannabe International Airport. In fact, the plane only completed a short flight mission, and I, as for myself, said goodbye to one city and threw myself into the arms of another strange city so easily.

When you enter the airport, you will see the buildings and decorations with Thai characteristics. Splendent pagodas and statues, murals, sculptures and pictures reflecting Thailand’s history, religion and culture can be seen everywhere, making people feel the royal style and Buddhist atmosphere of the country as soon as they enter Thailand. Indeed, Suwannabe International Airport is truly one of the largest, most distinctive and busiest airports in Asia.

In the spacious and elegant airport hall, each area has different airlines and flights to all parts of the world. The whole airport hall is equipped with complete facilities, beautifying and greening, and there are many tropical flowers. I think Thai culture should be deeply influenced by India. In the hall, you can see many Asura in Hindu mythology and a sculpture with a sea of milk churning, which is also one of the epics of Indian mythology.

Before coming out of the airport to take the tour bus, a Thai beauty presented each of us with a string of golden lotus flowers, the national flower of Thailand, strung together with red ropes, and took a photo with us. This scene, let us temporarily forget the fatigue of the journey.

Each of us accepted the special welcome of Thai customs and etiquette. We also learned to fold our hands on our chests and worship devoutly. We also said: Savarika (homophonic) means hello in Chinese. Now think about it, think this etiquette is quite good.

Along the way, with the tour guide explaining the local conditions, customs and traditional culture of Thailand, as well as the construction history of Suwannabe Airport, the mysterious veil of various legends of this world-famous tourist resort and Suwannabe Airport was lifted layer by layer.

According to the tour guide, Suwannabe Airport is the new airport built on September 28, 2006, also known as the new Bangkok International Airport. Locals call it the “Cobra” airport because there are many cobras in the surrounding trees. Cracks appeared on the runway and taxiway of the airport just after it was put into operation and needed to be repaired. Later, the “100-year-old” Langman Airport was opened.

Until December 2008, Suwannabe Airport was reopened. Suwannabe Airport took 45 years from planning, design to completion and cost 30 billion US dollars. Legend has it that the airport was built on an ancient temple and graveyard. After its completion, there were many “haunted” incidents. The management department had to build temples nearby. It also invited 99 eminent monks from Bangkok’s Jade Buddha Temple, Sleeping Buddha Temple and Golden Buddha Temple, which lasted for 7 days and 7 nights to chant sutras and rest the souls of all parties.

Suwannabe means “golden land” in Thai. Now Langman’s old airport has completely ceased operation, and some buildings have been converted into commodity display and shopping centers. Judging from the map, Suwannabe Airport is located south-east of the Grand Palace in downtown Bangkok, with a straight distance of about 29 kilometers. The airport covers an area of 32 square kilometers, of which the terminal is one of the largest in the world.

Suwannabe International Airport has an apron and two runways that can park 120 planes at the same time, and can handle 45 million people entering and leaving the country every year. It also has the world’s highest airport control tower, which is 132 meters high, in order to better control air traffic. The glass roof design of the airport is also the most in the world, which can help the building shield the strong tropical sunlight outside and reduce the operating cost of indoor air conditioning.

After getting on the tour bus, you can still hear the radio in the airport hall. The pearls were round and jade-embellished, and the voice of the female announcer reported the flight information over and over again. It was a Thai-English bilingual broadcast: “Attention, passengers, the first flight from Bangkok is about to take off.” Or: “The first flight from Bangkok will arrive in Bangkok soon.”

Ha ha, just between this and this, we welcomed and sent off more or less tourists from all over the world. Every day, every hour, even every minute is so busy, but full of hope and excitement. This is Thailand’s Suwannabe International Airport.

Suwannabe International Airport is like a fashion palace and a Buddhist museum. Although we all came and went in a hurry, I believe everyone who passed by can feel the exotic customs. Also, the mystery that cannot be explained clearly. . .

A beautiful stewardess is always a beautiful scenery line.

The Thai government allows tourists from 55 countries to enter the country.

Suwannabe International Airport is like a “cornucopia” to absorb foreign capital.

Architecture and Decoration with Thai Characteristics

There are many Asuras in Hindu mythology in the hall.

The sculpture of the milk sea churning is one of the Indian mythological epics.

Each region has different airlines and flights to all parts of the world.

Suwannabe Airport ranks 18th among the major airports in the world in terms of passenger flow.

Doraemon Temple in Bangkok, Thailand

1. Sanpashiu Temple is located in Supan Li Wu County, 2 hours north of Bangkok. Although this temple has existed for more than 700 years, the murals are keeping up with the times. Careful tourists find that cartoon images such as Doraemon are hidden in the murals during the viewing process. Therefore, it is also called the most fashionable temple in history by the media.

2. The four doraemon statues in front of the temple convey the Confucian idea of “seeing no evil, hearing no evil, speaking no evil and moving no evil”. But is the power really off in the front

3 or 9 years ago, the temple was renovated to create murals of Buddha’s reincarnation, so a painter named Rajian was invited to paint in the temple for 6 years. Because the painter likes cats very much, he secretly painted his favorite cartoon character Doraemon in an inconspicuous place. In the end, even the painter himself could not remember how much he painted and where he hid it.

4. Perhaps it is because the contents of the murals are immoral. Monks cover their eyes and dare not look at them more when they pass by. For so many years, no one has discovered the secrets hidden in the paintings.

22. Did you consider the feelings of Buddha and God when you drew these things? However, the temple did not blame the painter and even said magnanimously: The Doraemons in the murals attract children to visit the temple. All interested tourists are welcome to find them.

23. Uncle, the enthusiastic tour guide in the temple, without his advice, I would definitely not have found a Doraemon.

27, see I only filled a little rice noodles and Fried fish, the staff to bring fruit bowl and jelly. When the domestic temple can also be so good

Address of the temple: Shangbaxiu Temple is located in Suphaburi, Supan Li Wu County, 150 kilometers from Bangkok. The way of arrival is: 1. Chartered bus to 2. Take the light rail BTSN3VICTOR station, transfer the van to the local long-distance bus station and take two buses. I suggest that it is best to charter a bus, because the temple is located in a remote area and there are no living double strips and motorcycle at the gate. When I returned, I stood on the country road for half an hour before getting a motorcycle. Also, because the temple staff are warm and friendly and take care of food, if everyone can bring some small toys such as Doraemon key chains in return, they will be very happy.

Super Detailed Bangkok-Su Mei-Tao Island Food, Housing and Travel Strategy

First of all, it should be explained that this is an absolutely powerful process strategy from Bangkok to Koh Samui and Koh Tao! Yes, just like the process strategy of video games. Yes, it is easy for you to pass the test after watching it, but I am not sure whether you can experience the true meaning of the game and the fun in it. Don’t blame me for writing everything completely, so you don’t have to feel at risk. Again, this is a strategy only suitable for budget travelers who are not afraid of hardships on the road and only have intimate contact with sunny beaches. Please make sure you need to read it. . . . . . Are you sure, do you still want to continue watching? All right, here we go!

First, let’s know where you are going. Koh Samui Sumi Island has the same pronunciation as “Guo Shimei” in Cantonese. This is a large island in the southern part of the gulf of thailand, which is, of course, surrounded by the sea on all sides. To the northwest of the island is a na thon pier, which is mainly connected to the surat thani on the mainland of thailand. Famous beaches here include Chaweng beach and Lamai beach. The former has wider and noisy beaches, while the latter has better sandy and quiet and comfortable beaches, each taking its own needs. Most of the hotels are seaside apartments, with relatively few beach bungalows. Most of the same hotels provide garden view rooms or sea view rooms, and few hotels provide free Internet service, except for senior hotels. The island’s transportation is mainly based on privately operated pickup trucks or so-called meter taxis, but never meters. There are no large entertainment and shopping facilities on the island.

Then there is Koh Tao Tao Dao, Dao Dao and Gui Dao, which are all his translated names. The pronunciation is “Guo (Cantonese) to (Mandarin)”, ha ha. This is a small island to the north of Sumi. There is also a koh phangan among them, which has a very famous full/half moon party. Koh Tao is also one of the top 10 diving sites in the world. The only pier connecting the mainland here is at the end of the small town of mae haad. There is only one famous beach here, Sairee beach, which feels not much different from Chaweng in Sumi. Most hotels are based on bungalow, which is also a coexistence of garden view and sea view. The price is relatively low and the choice is relatively diverse. The traffic on the island is recommended to drive a motorcycle by oneself. The roads there are not wide and the space is not large enough. All right, all right, we really have to go!

Now that your flight has landed at Bangkok International Airport, how do you get to Koh Samui and Koh Tao? Here are several ways for you to choose from, and both return trips are applicable:

1. Take a direct flight from Thai Airlines or Bangkok Airlines to Sumi in Bangkok, which takes one hour, and the airport is on the island. The disadvantage is that the price is too high. This article also does not focus on this method.

2. Choose a plane from other airlines to surat thani, and then take a boat to Sumei. The ticket price is favorable. The disadvantage is that all the air, sea and land are used, and the journey takes 7-8 hours. The method of connecting travel by car and boat is the same as that in point 3 below. There are not many flights, please calculate the connection time of each point by yourself.

3. Take the Southern Railway to Chumporn at Bangkok Railway Station, and then find a connecting ticket to Koh Tao at the railway station. It is best to explain to him that you want to take the Lomprayah ship. The meaning of a connecting ticket is to take you directly to the island from your location, and any transfer will be arranged for you. Another way is to take the same southern railway to surat thani and then buy a connecting ticket to koh samui. There is also a ship to lomprayah, which recently opened. Both methods can be used, mainly depending on whether you want to play from Koh Samui or Koh Tao. Look at Google Earth and study it yourself. It is really not much different. It is estimated that the total time per journey will take 12-14 hours. The train can choose sleeper. For train prices, please refer to http://www.railway.co.th/english/index.asp; The price of the connecting ticket is about 600-700 baht. Http://lomprayah.com/Lomprayah’s boat schedule can be found here.

4. Find the ticket office of lomprayah directly at khao san Rd in Bangkok to buy a connecting ticket. Tell him about koh samui or koh tao. He will arrange the route for you. This is the way of vip bus + boat. The time is also between 12 and 14 hours. The advantage is that you don’t have to run to each transfer point by yourself. The middle is seamless and will be arranged for you. The bus is relatively spacious and can lie down. There is a bathroom. This is my favorite way. It is convenient, worry-free and can save time. I basically arrive when I wake up at night. Although the process seems to take the longest time, it is actually the most time-saving route, because you have used the original sleeping time to travel, and you can really sleep, but children’s shoes that have no confidence in their own physique are still carefully considered! Please also refer to http://lomprayah.com/for the departure time, and you can measure each method yourself.

5. Recently, surfing discovered a new way to go to Koh Tao in Bangkok… ultra-small plane! It was only opened on Valentine’s Day in 2011. The operating company is called Solar Air. His family’s plane is very mini, with only 18 seats! I don’t know what the flying height is, and I don’t know whether the flying is stable or not. I hope there will be feedback after sitting on children’s shoes. However, in Bangkok, I have to go to the old airport to take this plane, which is Don Muang Airport. His route is as follows: a direct flight from Bangkok to Chumporn airport, and then a lomprayah bus and boat will land on to Koh Tao. The whole price is 3250 baht per person, and the price includes all the expenses of air, sea and land. It is not cheap but it saves a lot of time! Interested children’s shoes log on to his website. Http://solar-aviation.magicssoft.com/solar-aviation/default_en. Aspx

So how can I get to the railway station or khao san Rd at Bangkok airport? There are many ways. It is recommended to take taxi directly. It is more cost-effective for two people than to take public transportation. As for the way to take taxi, please see http://www.yododo.com/guide/011EB439C8B30016FF8080811EB43401 I wrote earlier. In addition, starting from August 2010, Bangkok Airport has opened a railway service to the urban area. The whole journey takes 45 baht and takes 30 minutes. The terminal is Phaya Thai Station of BTS (Light Rail), making it more convenient to enter the urban area. If you want to go to the railway station or Khao San Rd’s shoes, take the airport railway from B1 on the negative floor of the airport to the terminal, and then walk from the overpass to Phaya Thai Station. Here, you want to go to Khao San’s exit 1 or 3, and you want to go to the railway station from exit 2 or 4. Just take taxi directly. The price of the meter is 60-80 baht. For the location of lomprayah at the ticket office of khao san Rd, please refer to wp-content/uploads/2079. Gif and the location of Bangkok Railway Station is called Hua Lamphong. Turning back to the Airport Railway, there is a station called Makkasan, which temporarily provides check in and luggage check-in services for Thai Airlines and Bangkok Airlines, but it must be handled within 3-13 hours before the plane takes off. If necessary, you can refer to the same shoes.

After the above introduction, it is estimated that you have successfully landed in Koh Samui or Koh Tao. Let’s briefly introduce some matters on the island. Let’s talk about koh samui first. No matter which road you take, you will eventually board the boat at na thon pier in koh samui. As soon as you arrive here, many people will ask you whether you want to go to Chaweng beach or Lamai beach. In fact, the whole Koh Samui generally has only two kinds of cars for you to choose from. One is called pickup truck in China, which is to set up an iron cage at the back of the car with people sitting on both sides. They are called big tuk. It is usually 100 baht to go to Chaweng Beach from the dock, but it is recommended to wrap it in 300 baht to go to Lamai Beach’s shoes, because it is difficult to get together people to go to Lamai. The other is the so-called meter taxi, but never uses a meter. Well, I admit this is emphasized again! Those who are not short of money will find those who hold price tags, mostly those who are meter taxi. Generally, he can accept a price cut of 150-200 baht. No matter what kind of car you take, you should be able to take you directly to the front of the hotel. You should communicate with him well. The distance between Chaweng and Lamai is about 10km. It is recommended to take big tuk or drive by oneself for the same shoes to experience everywhere. It is not recommended to ride motorcycles, because there are many narrow roads, many uphill and downhill sections and sharp bends.

Speaking of hotels, by the way, I would like to talk about the reservation method. If you go to Koh Samui in the peak season, you’d better make a reservation first, because there are really many people, so it is not necessary in the off season. I recommend a website for reservation, www.sawadee.com, a good local hotel reservation network in Thailand, with fast speed, detailed pictures and descriptions and accuracy. Hotels on the beach usually provide free beach chairs for hotel guests, so enjoy them. However, practice has proved that even if it is not your hotel, you can use other people’s beach chairs. However, someone may immediately hand you a drink menu and ask you to buy a drink. You can order one casually. It is not expensive anyway. Ordinary hotels do not have many free Internet service. Generally, they need to buy wireless Internet authorization from the front desk. The price should be consulted with the front desk. At the end of this article, I will introduce you to the situation of mobile phone surfing the Internet. It is enough to chat about QQ, microblog or simple email.

The following is an introduction to the situation of taking part in a one-day tour and half-day tour in Koh Samui. Those who have been to the same shoe may notice that the travel service in Thailand is relatively comprehensive. There are many travel agencies all over the street. You can buy various types of air tickets, boat tickets, train tickets and sign up for a one-day tour. The one-day tour that Koh Samui can take part in is mainly a tour around the island (including riding elephants). Angthong national marine park; There is also a game called cable rides, which is a game of shuttling through the woods by using overhead sliding ropes. It is quite exciting. Of course, there is also a one-day snorkeling tour for koh tao + koh nangyuan, but it is not recommended. They all went to koh samui and did not go to koh tao to stay for a few days. It is too wasteful. I won’t say these prices, because this kind of small shop goes one by one. As long as you ask the price once, it is basically the same nearby. If you are not at ease, ask more. Then you can buy tickets from Koh Samui to Koh Tao from these small shops, so look for Lomprayah’s ship. I forgot to tell you before, in fact, this company’s ship is a catamaran high-speed ship, which saves time and is stable (when the wind and waves are not big). The price is basically the same. However, you will find that the quotation from the small shop will be slightly higher than that from Lomprayah’s official website, which is normal, because the tickets booked from the small shop include hotel pick up service, that is, he will send a car to the hotel to pick you up to the dock. This is where I think Thai tourism services are good. All these one-day tours or connecting trips do not need to find their own way to go to what, but all include pick-up and drop-off services. Therefore, when buying tickets, you should leave the hotel name and room number and wait for the driver in the lobby at the appointed time. Generally, it is good to sign up or buy tickets one day in advance. After signing up, the shop will give you a small envelope with a voucher in it, and then you will have to give it to the driver who picked you up.

I’m going to Koh Tao soon. Excite! According to the appointed time, the driver will come to pick you up in the lobby, and may pick up several fellow passers-by along the way. It will take about 40 minutes to arrive at the Lomprayah Company dock in Koh Samui. First, check in at the corresponding destination window to get the ticket, and then you can sit and wait for the boat. Of course, if you want to board the ship early, you’d better stand at the entrance first. There will be a stop in the middle of the ship’s journey. This is the koh phangan mentioned earlier in the middle of koh samui and koh tao. Listen to the radio on the ship and don’t get off wrong.

When you arrive at Koh Tao, you will see some people on the dock who are specially receiving tourists holding cards with the name of the client or the name of his hotel. Please contact him directly. If you haven’t found a hotel yet, or if the hotel doesn’t have a pick-up service, then don’t go too far. Just find a small shop that rents motorcycles on the way out of the dock on a big slope, rent them and start taking risks. Although the area on the island is not very large, you will be very depressed if you do not have a motorcycle to walk on everything. There are two situations in renting motorcycles, which I have encountered before, and I must use my passport as collateral.

In the first case, the car condition is very new and beautiful, earning 200 baht a day. And before giving it to you, the boss will introduce you to the car body. If there were scratches, he will mark them on a piece of paper with motorcycle graphics. At this time, you must pay more attention to the situation on each part than the exam to make sure there are any scars. Then the boss will ask you to sign the car rental contract to prove that you have confirmed the condition of the car. At this moment, you should pay attention to the fact that the compensation price of each component will be listed on the back of the general contract, and even if there are only scratches and no damages, you will also have to compensate the price of the component in full. When he returns the car, he will take it seriously with you, so he will use a magnifying glass to give you trouble.

The second situation is that motorcycles already have many scratches and look older. This kind of motorcycle costs 150 baht a day. It is also to sign the same contract, but at this moment the boss is much more casual. He doesn’t confirm with you where there are scratches and damages. Just sign and confirm. Of course, you can’t be careless. Scratches can be ignored, but the damaged places must be paid attention to. Well, this time he didn’t mark out on the paper where there was a problem, so you can rest assured to use it. There is no big problem. When he returned the car, he returned your passport without even looking at it. Let’s see which shoes are more suitable for you.

Koh Tao is mostly a small bungalow on the beach. Generally speaking, it is not a full/half moon party in Koh phangan that has no room to live in. You just walk around on a motorcycle and find a place you like to settle down. Since Koh Tao’s things are separated by many hills on both sides, the road is not very easy to walk, but the general living facilities are relatively perfect in the west, and those who want to visit the east will have to take risks. From west to east, many roads are silt and stone, and they are especially steep. No matter how skilled the same shoe is, you must be careful. Motorcycle accidents are very common. If the car falls to the ground, you have to pay a lot of money. More importantly, if people are injured and go to soak in seawater, will you? Therefore, if you encounter steep mountain roads, please do what you can, don’t try to be brave, safety comes first. Then why go east? It is because there are few people there that they can have a close contact with nature. Ha ha.

There is nothing to say on this island. During the day, everyone basks in the sand beach in front of the room, swims, or takes part in snorkeling around the island (there will be a brief introduction below). At night, they go to the seaside bar of Sairee Beach, eating and drinking, listening to heavy metal music and watching the flame show. At the end of the day, people are completely relaxed. Those who like to visit small shops can also find some small shops with souvenirs or special clothes in mae haad village at the dock or sairee village to the north.

There are not many special travel agency on the island. If you want to sign up for a snorkeling tour around the island or a boat ticket, you can book it through your hotel front desk. The price is also very consistent, including shuttle service. Usually, I will take you to 3 or 4 snorkeling points in the morning, then have lunch on the boat, and then I will take you to Koh Nangyuan, where I will stay for about two hours. The island fee of 100 baht must be paid, and plastic bottles cannot be brought up, which supports vexation and protection. If there are four or more people, When you sign up, the other party may suggest that you use 2500 baht to pack the next long tail boat, that is, the long tail boat, and then the place and time to go are relatively free, that is, the boat looks dangerous and unreliable, but it is OK without big waves. I have tried to be dragged, tossed and tossed by it under big waves.

And what… Well, let’s introduce the food again. Whether you are in what Beach or Village, there will be various restaurants, large and small, to choose from on both sides of the main road, as well as roadside stalls. Restaurants usually offer western food (French, Italian, ordinary western food) and Thai food at the same time, and the taste is actually very close, so the only choice you can choose is the environment and price. It is recommended to have a cup of fresh juice or juice shake per meal, which is cheap and tastes good. In fact, it is quite necessary to know the English words of various foods before going out, so that you can at least see what it is and what it is. The authentic Thai dishes should not be introduced too much. Let’s briefly say that tom Yum Goong (Winter Yin Gong) means Thai sour and spicy shrimp soup, and Goong means Thai shrimp, so you will sometimes see that tom yum shrimp/seafood/chicken what has different meat materials in Thai sour and spicy soup. Then there is Thai fried powder, which is also good. It is called Pad thai what what and has different meat materials. Then there is the Thai salad that must be tasted, the Thai transliteration is som dam, so you will see that some menus will say som dam… + papaya is Thai green papaya salad, some are mango, and shrimp can be added. On this trip, I found that the menus of many restaurants also translated pad thai into fried noodle, som dam into thai salad, and goong into shrimp or prawn, which was more intuitive and clear than before.

Well, the above has basically written about the food, housing and transportation of Koh Samui and Koh Tao. Below, at the end, let’s talk about some suggestions for Bangkok to find accommodation. Recently, I also met several friends who have asked questions. If you like the same shoes in the youth dormitory or inn, please make a detour. Here, you will not talk about this aspect. First of all, find out your main itinerary when staying in Bangkok. Most foreign backpackers suggest to live in Khao San Rd. We Chinese backpackers don’t need to follow them all. After all, it is a gathering place for Europeans and Americans. I didn’t feel the local characteristics of what when I went there. It was just a bunch of local small businessmen surrounded by a lot of European and American ghosts. However, if you like to see scenic spots, such as what Palace, Buddhist Temple, Museum, etc., it is still recommended that you live in Khao San Rd, which is convenient and can be walked to some places. If you like shopping, looking at the city and using rail transit, Silom is your only choice. This is the junction of BtS and subway. BtS station is called Sala Daeng and subway station is called Silom. It is close to siam, the most prosperous commercial center. This is a city that never sleeps at night. There are night markets, bar, massage shops and daily necessities shops that are open all night. Of course, there are all kinds of food shops. There are many paths to the south of Silom Rd. There are many newly opened private hotels in it. The price is a little higher, ranging from 1,000 to 1,500 baht, but it is convenient and comfortable to live in. I strongly recommend this area. Well… it’s almost the same. The place names of my whole strategy are basically written in English, which you must understand. If you don’t believe you look at the Chinese name in the Chinese map to find a place, I promise you will die of depression! No one plans to translate place names with electronic dictionaries……

It’s really the last thing, about mobile phones. Most tourists use two mobile phone network providers, truemove and dtac’s happy sim, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Http://www.truemove.com/en/index.rails and http://www.happy.co.th/home.php are introduced. Just look at prepaid card. Both can be found at the exit of the airport’s entry floor. Let me introduce Truemove’s. His service shop is at the exit. As you can see at a glance, tourists basically buy inter sim prepaid cards, which are valid for one year after activation. The first purchase fee is 49 baht. You can choose to recharge 50, 150, 300 or more immediately, depending on your own needs. Using 006 + country code + telephone number to call back to China is 3 baht per minute, using 00600 + country code + telephone number is 1 baht per minute, depending on your own needs. As for the mobile phone surfing the Internet, it is recommended to use his traffic package. For 50MB traffic within 30 days, only 50 baht is needed. QQ, microblog and email are all fine!

Bamboo Raft Drifting in Chiang Mai Jungle

The book went back. After riding the elephant, we got on the car and walked for about ten minutes to our second project of the day, bamboo raft rafting. The tour guide told us to change into bathing suits and put valuables on the car (cameras, video cameras, etc.). If we were damaged during rafting, we would not be responsible. Maybe this is a country place, The place to change clothes is very simple, We will take off our shoes and socks in our changed bathing suits. In order not to wet the camera, I put the camera in the car. Walking barefoot under the river bank, Barefoot stepping on the cobblestone road felt a little pain. Soon he came to the river and saw a bamboo raft waiting for us. Eleven people in our car sat on three bamboo rafts one after another. The boatman who supported the bamboo raft asked us to sit down separately and told us in stiff English that standing was very dangerous.

The minibus we took

This is our guide for that day

Our rafts went down the river, The trees on both sides of the river are lush and luxuriant. Thousands of birds can’t sing, The river was calm and swift, Boulders also appear in the river from time to time, Sometimes the waves are so high that they are so high. The water fell on the body and was cool. The boatmen who support bamboo rafts are highly skilled. Left and right swing around boulders, We sat on the bamboo raft and screamed from time to time. I don’t know how far it has drifted, After drifting for nearly an hour, the boatman came ashore and motioned us ashore. We thought we had reached the end point and landed unsatisfied. We saw that the tourists in front were still walking along the river. Bamboo rafts were waiting in front. They boarded the boat again. Later, we found that the river was narrow and the water was extremely fast. For the safety of the tourists, the boatmen let the tourists walk through the road before drifting forward.

After more than an hour of drifting, I found that the choice without a camera was correct, but I regretted not bringing a card player. If a large camera is inconvenient, it may get wet and the card player will be much more convenient.

Such a young child came out to make money by rowing bamboo rafts.

Isn’t the young man who supports our bamboo raft cool?

The place where we had lunch after rafting on the bamboo raft.

Most of the lunches on that day were vegetarian dishes, but they were well matched. The taste was different from that of Chinese food. The ingredients were special. Curry was a favorite of Thais.

There is chicken in this dish, but it is not very much. You can order it again after eating it.

Three dishes, as well as Dongyingong soup, are said to be the specialty of this peasant family. At first, they were not used to it, but after eating a bowl of rice, they got used to the taste of the dishes here.

There is a rice field behind the lunch shop. The scenery is very beautiful. After lunch, I stopped eating here. Ha ha

After that, we will continue our next project…….

Pattaya’s Nightlife

Pattaya is a famous seascape resort in Thailand, 150 kilometers southeast of Bangkok. Pattaya was originally a small fishing village. It was during the Vietnam War in the 1960s that American soldiers built a holiday center in this land of continuous sand beaches, clear water and blue sky for fun. Only then did Pattaya, which is full of flowers and infinite charm today, become a success. There are classic sea water and sand beaches in Southeast Asia, which are called “Oriental Hawaii”. In particular, the Coral Island near Pattaya is the largest island outside Pattaya Beach. There are many sandy beaches around the island, with white sand and fine cotton and clear water bottoming out. But Pattaya’s real charm lies in cheap consumption, indulgent nightlife and special transvestites.

Johnson once said that the role of tourism is to restrict imagination with reality: not to think that things will belong to how, but to see that they are actually how’s.

Thailand was originally a Buddhist country. Can’t you see the pedestal pagodas standing everywhere in this “smiling capital” and the Thai people kneeling down, folding their hands and worshipping with their foreheads touching the ground to express their piety when they meet monks or Buddha statues like Buddha? However, Pattaya of Thailand is famous all over the world. It is said that Pattaya’s porn industry is the originator of its peers in the world. The Thai government’s policy is to “ban gambling and cannot help being yellow”, so the sex trade here is open. There is no taboo, shame or disdain at all. That’s why you can really understand what’s name is “laughing at poverty but not prostitution”.

When it comes to Pattaya’s nightlife, we can’t bypass the transvestite performance. Tiffany’s Show is the most popular transvestite performance. In the evening at the Woodlands & Resort Hotel, the boss of Tiffany’s Show came to meet and say hello. What is shocking is that her boss is actually a very beautiful woman, which makes people think: Is she a transvestite? To tell the truth, what is possible in a city where it is difficult to distinguish between men and women. Of course, now I understand: she is not a transvestite, but the daughter of the founder of Tiffany’s Show. Her father founded Tiffany’s Show in 1974 and she is now in charge.

The reservation is to watch the performance starting at 9 o’clock, and our car leaves from Woodlands & Resort Hotel at about 7: 30. Starting ahead of schedule is not that far away, but to get a glimpse of Pattaya’s nightlife along the way. The “black pearls” along the way (these women are generally small in size and dark in skin, hence the name.) While disappointing us, we couldn’t help marveling at the number. However, most of the people holding hands with these “black pearls” are “big white geese” over 60 years old (they are collectively referred to as white and fat Westerners who have the most fun in Pattaya * *), which makes us question the aesthetic view of “big white geese”. According to the tour guide, Westerners who come here have “three rents”, namely, renting a house, renting a car and renting “black pearls”. Isn’t it true that these retired “ghosts” come here to find a little sister to spend a few days in the “end” of her life. What can we do?

Here we go, Tiffany’s Show. As the previous performance had just ended, the door was full of people who took photos with these performers. We couldn’t help but want to take a few pictures of these “men more beautiful than women”, but the tour guide kept urging us to go quickly and said that we would take pictures after watching the performance. Due to previous contact with the boss, people have already made arrangements. We naturally sat in the best position in the VIP area.

When Tiffany’s was first launched in Southeast Asia in 1974, several talented singers and dancers imitated Broadway musicals in the United States, perfectly imitating the singing and elegant movements of Hollywood movie star Marilyn Monroe. Today, there are 90 actors here who can imitate the classic jokes of various countries to pay the audience.

To borrow a sentence from his performance brochure: “The one hour twenty minute family show is a breaktaking stage extra travaganza that will set your feet tapping and your heart racing and when the final curtain comes down, beginning for more.” After watching the performance, I really felt this way: Is there anything else? After the performance, come out and take a photo with the actors. For every 40 Thai baht (less than 10 yuan RMB), you can take a photo with an actor. If you want 100 Thai baht, you can take a photo with someone else’s rubber gadget. Traditionally, you have to prepare small change for tips, because you will not be given change. But the transvestites here will not take advantage of you. You don’t have any change, it’s okay-you can hear that your transvestite sister is greeting you: I can give you change, I have it!

The above three pictures are provided by Tiffany’s

The transvestite performance is indeed a must see program for traveling to Thailand. Of course, let’s put down some ethical issues here. As the brochure of Tiffany’s Show says: “Treat yourself to a mind blowing experience of unique, exotic glamour, the most beautiful showgirls and handsome boys in Thailand, extra costumes and stunning sets. An overall picture of beauty and taste. Tiffany’s has it all.” So go and see it by yourself!

After watching the transvestite performance, we will go to see Pattaya’s * *. Nowadays, all major cities have pedestrian streets, and Pattaya, Thailand’s second largest tourist city, is no exception. The difference is that the pedestrian street here is genuine * *. As mentioned earlier, Thailand is a country where sex trade is open. Speaking of which, I couldn’t help thinking of Thailand’s national motto: nationality, religion, king. Speaking of nationalities, Thailand is a multi-ethnic country. King, portraits of the king can be seen everywhere, not to mention. Even in * *, I don’t forget to write “Long Live the King”. The towering minarets and temples also reflect their religious side, but religion and life are divorced here.

The * * here, or you say sex workers or women who have fallen in love, are openly peddling themselves on various occasions, acting in small groups or alone, all soliciting their own businesses. The “pearl” here will wave to you from time to time, and once you are interested in one of them, or if you look at it for a short time, you will encounter electric eyes or provocations. If you like it, you can come forward to bargain. If you don’t like to talk and leave, the girl will blink at you and thank you for your patronage. They don’t seem to be afraid of your lens either, and they may also pose in front of your lens. I’m sorry, but it’s us tourists.

Since it is * *, it is not only the “women who have fallen in love”, but also the young men who have fallen in love are soliciting their own businesses here. It is said that the Thai government also conducts regular free inspections for these people who engage in flesh and blood business.

Pattaya’s nightlife is not only a transvestite performance or * *, but also the cultural characteristics of a country or a region behind the transvestite and * *. On the one hand, people deeply believed in Buddhism can say that everyone is devout, while on the other hand, it is a country characterized by pornography. Although Thailand does not explicitly stipulate the legality of the sex industry, the government acquiesces in the industry to promote the development of tourism and has formulated a free medical examination system for employees to control the spread of diseases. This is the progress of a country’s rulers, or……

In any case, if you arrive in Pattaya without watching the transvestite performance or walking in the pedestrian street after nightfall, then you certainly do not see Pattaya’s characteristics. Perhaps we disdain to understand this characteristic, but “the function of tourism is to restrict imagination with reality. “If you don’t use reality to restrain your imagination, then the role of your Pattaya tour is another matter.

The Third Impression of Thailand–Initial Impression of Pullman Hotel

When we got off the plane, we took a van to Bangkok and collapsed in Pullman Hotel, which is located in downtown Bangkok. When we got off, we saw its open facade. The doorman had already welcomed us to help carry the luggage. Peter had already heard on the bus that when the doorman helped carry the luggage, he had to pay 20 tips.

There is a unique cave in the hotel. It is completely decorated with large glass. The whole hall is bright. At the same time, it uses white orchids as partitions in a unique way, making the hall form independent spaces one by one. The first floor gives me a simple and atmospheric feeling. When we entered the hall, the staff had already delivered cups of thirst-quenching juice, which tasted sweet. There is another scenery in the bar waiting for the hotel manager. There are musical instruments playing in the front table and many foreign wines are displayed in the middle. As you can imagine, when night falls, this should be a good place to drink some wine, listen to music and relax yourself.

When we leave the bar and walk into the guest room, you can feel that the privacy is guaranteed here. When we get on the elevator, you have to plug in your room card to press the floor before you can enter your room.

After visiting the double rooms of this hotel, As well as single rooms, I am most impressed by the fact that this hotel pays great attention to details. It will create some romance and surprises for you inadvertently. When you walk into the edge of the bathtub, you will find a fresh bird of paradise standing in the corner. When you are taking a bath, this bird of paradise will accompany you and make you feel warm when enjoying alone.

When you put on a comfortable pajamas, you can sit at the small table and enjoy the freshest fruits, or you can sit at the desk and write down your travel story, where you will have the happiness of returning home.

When we stayed in this hotel, I had the big bed alone. The soft bed made me dream at once. When the alarm clock rang, the warm bed did not want to let me get up.

In the evening, we came to the restaurant, which has various kinds of delicious food. I want to give it a try if the color lures me.

I’m a detail-minded person, However, this hotel pays great attention to details. It will leave some flowers at the corner. You can often find different decorations in this hotel. When passing through the hall, beautiful fish will accompany you one by one, and the green color in the courtyard will also make you shine at the moment. It is a hotel worth staying in and you will enjoy warmth and romance.

The remnants of the Kuomintang army in northern Thailand

There is a small village called mesler in Chiang Rai Prefecture in northern Thailand. There are villagers who speak pure Chinese and Mandarin. They keep the traditional culture and customs of the Chinese nation. They are the remnants of the 93rd division of the Kuomintang in Yunnan and their descendants.

Kuomintang 93 division residence

This is a group photo with the guards. It can be seen clearly on the couplet in front of the gate that: every year I feel sad, I have no home and no home. Now, the remnants of the 93rd division and their descendants have laid down their weapons. Some of them have acquired Thai nationality and can live and work in the city. Those who do not have Thai nationality can only live in this small village. The “national army” brother who took photos with me has not acquired Thai nationality. He and his relatives still live here. He stands guard here and works as a part-time commentator. He takes tourists to the exhibition and the village where they live. His relatives make some handicrafts and sell them to tourists. Life is full of hardships. His ancestral home is from Shandong. He explained and showed us the whole process of tour. His tone is full of bitterness and his eyes are confused. Imagine a person who has no nationality. Can he have a firm look?

This is the ammunition depot of the 93rd division. The weapons are still quite advanced. It can be seen that the combat effectiveness at that time was quite strong. No wonder that the Thai army could not be killed for many years and could only rely on deception and security measures. How to deal with these historical problems? There is nothing wrong with their descendants. They must also be Chinese. We listen to their stories with compassion and national sentiment. They should not live a life without nationality. It seems that they can only hope for the day of reunification of the motherland!
