Amit Shinde talks about the crazy experience he and his friend Jayant had in Thailand. His package cost him INR 63,200 and included hotels, transfers, sightseeing, and flights. He recalls all the good times he had while visiting the island country.
I will always cherish my trip to Thailand. It is one of those places that everyone has on their bucket list and I am glad that I ticked it off with my friend Jayant.
Thailand was on our minds since a long time and when the opportunity presented itself, all we had to do was jump in and enjoy the show, which we did.
So, after searching numerous websites and portals for a land package, we finally settled on TravelTriangle, since it offered us greater flexibility, better rates and an interesting itinerary in our budget.
Day 1: Pattaya – Arriving in the city of dreams
The first day in Thailand was mostly spent traveling. We reached Bangkok and were subsequently transferred to Pattaya. After checking in at the hotel, we set out to explore the Walking Street, an area known for incredible nightlife and activities.
Day 2: Pattaya – Exploring islands and more
This was a day full of activities. The first half of the day went into the Coral Island tour, which in our collective opinion was better than our imagination. The beautiful warm weather, beaches, and the crowd of the place made it all worthwhile and exciting. The clear blue waters of Thailand enticed me, and in the end we wished we had more time.
After coming back to the Pattaya city, we had the half day to ourselves and so we decided to make the most of it. Our local travel agent helped us in fulfilling this wish. He arranged for tickets and transfers to the Alcazar, and Russian Show. The Alcazar was mind blowing, it was a world-class cabaret show and had all the interesting elements in it including acting, stage design, costume, and of course, glamour. The Russian adult show was also great and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole exotic experience. We had also planned for the Big Eye Show but had to avoid it, as we were getting late. So far, Pattaya was good to us.

Day 3: Bangkok – The city that never sleeps
We were transferred to Bangkok on the third day. Later, in the city we saw two grand Buddhist temples as part of the city tour and then proceeded on to our hotel.
We also stopped at Indra Mall on our way and found cheap yet good quality commodities. The rest of the evening was spent in exploring the streets of Bangkok.
Day 4: Bangkok – Witnessing a new world
The fourth day brought in the Safari World with itself. Once again we did this on our own but were assisted by the local travel agent connected through TravelTriangle. The Safari World and its experience of witnessing wildlife in close proximity made me realise the beauty of nature and all its beings.
There were various animal shows in the Safari World for us and each one was better than the other (Dolphin, Chimpanzee, Sealine etc. ). It was entertaining to witness the animals performing so flawlessly.
The buffet that was arranged there was well organized and sumptuous too.
Then there was the Safari Park, an animal park that allowed us to see wildlife without the cages and shackles. It was exciting to roam around in the wild on a jeep and see the animals in their free state.
After returning from the Safari World, we went back to our hotel and after freshening up, we again set off to explore the nightlife of Bangkok.
The nightlife experience in Bangkok was more than satisfying and true to the claims- ‘the city never sleeps’. Roaming around in the streets of Bangkok even at 4 AM was as normal as roaming around the same place in the day. We were able to find an auto back to the hotel easily and to our surprise, we weren’t charged anything extra. The city was exactly like we had seen in the hit movie, The Hangover 2.

Day 5: Bidding farewell
The next day we checked out of the hotel at 12 Noon and went for a traditional Thai Massage. It was an amazing experience and all of it was done without a single drop of oil. We were picked up for the airport at 4:30 PM and thus the journey ended.
Thailand was an amazing experience for us. Going there with my friend Jayant turned out to be the perfect decision as we both had the best time there. The country turned out to be a complete package because of its beauty, serenity, budget-friendliness, and the overall positive ambiance.
Thailand is definitely more than the 18+ destination that people perceive it to be since there are so many things that families, couples, and friends can do there.
The truth is, it is a country that loves everyone equally and tries to do justice by all and we salute it for that.
A perfect destination for all those wanting to live life to the fullest!
High Points – The city is awake 24/7. Shops like Seven Eleven, Twenty Four Seven are always open and serving. Amazing nightlife and nature experience, shopping, crowd, the people are welcoming and are not there to thug tourists.
