Cherishable experiences of our romantic trip to Thailand
Enjoying a refreshing start at Patong beach
So, It was our first day in a very new country for us, Thailand. As per the itinerary, our pickup was arranged at the Phuket International Airport on time. We headed to our Hotel (Casa Del M) and as we had checked-in early, we were asked to wait in the waiting area/lounge but we decided to keep our luggage and go explore nearby areas. At around 02:00 PM, we checked into the hotel and after getting freshen up we headed to Patong Beach which was just 15 minutes stroll away from our hotel. After a tiring journey of 24 hours, it was quite refreshing to walk by the beach. It was very clean and the aura of that place was so soothing. Some of the famous food chains like McDonald’s, KFC, Pizza Company, and Burger King were also there. Moreover, we were lucky enough to witness the beautiful sunset which was pure bliss!
Indulging in fun & adventure: A tour of Phi Phi Island
Our day 2 was dedicated to the Phi Phi Island Tour. We did an upgrade from Ferry to Speed Boat and it turned out to be such a wise decision. We covered Phi Phi Leh Island, Viking Cave, Phi Phi Don Island and Monkey Island which are the best places to visit on a Thailand tour. To challenge the adventure junkies in us, we also did snorkeling, scuba diving, and other water activities. Wherever we went, the water was crystal clear and we were completely enchanted by the beauty of these islands. We also befriended a couple and gelled up so well with them, and continued with them till Pattaya. After reaching the hotel, we were all drained as it was a full day tour. So, we all decided to go to the rooftop restaurant and had some drinks and snacks.
Kayaking in Krabi: What an experience!
We reached our hotel at Krabi on day 3 and the welcoming staff greeted us with Hibiscus Juice and this was actually the best stay throughout the Thailand trip. As it was a free day for us as per itinerary, so we four decided to go for kayaking in the Mangrove Tree Forest. We were quite delighted to be able to make a trip by boat through the mangrove forest. The mangrove forest was so utterly captivating and the chirping of the birds hiding in the trees felt like a lullaby. It turned out to be one of the great experiences to try on our romantic trip to Thailand.
To satiate our taste buds, we also went to “Namaste”, an Indian food restaurant. Since we both were craving for Indian food, that place turned out to be a real savior for us.
Exploring Pattaya like a pro!
We really didn’t have much time to stay in Pattaya but we wanted to make the most of what we had. So, we went for the Alcazar Cabaret Show. We were warmly welcomed with a soft drink and guided to our seats. The show was of an hour and it was a unique blend of various cultures. We were enthralled by the majestic performances of ladyboy artists. After immensely enjoying the visual treat, we headed towards the famous walking street. The moment we entered the street, we could feel the magic of that place. The entire street was packed clubs and adult bars. One of the best parts we liked was that even though there was no festival, celebrations were in full swing there. Although we had very less time in Pattaya, we’re really glad we spent it the right way.
Embracing the culture and colors of Bangkok
After spending a fantastic time in Pattaya, we headed to Bangkok and went for a half day tour. Here we covered Wat Pho (Sleeping Buddha Temple) and Golden Buddha, officially titled Phra Phuttha Maha Suwana Patimakon. It is a pure gold Maravijaya Attitude seated Buddharupa statue, with a weight of 5.5 tonnes. It is located in the temple of Wat Traimit and the world fame Gems Gallery (International Tourists are offered certain discounts and VAT Free vouchers from Government Of Thailand). We felt really grateful to see the glimpse of the rich Thai culture. Then we moved ahead to one of the famous markets in Bangkok – the “Indira Market”. The market had a lot of good buys but we felt that prices were escalated for tourists. Nevertheless, we could buy some really beautiful souvenirs at really cheap prices.
Going on a jungle safari: A perfect wildlife tour
One of the best days of our entire romantic trip to Thailand, our 6th day was real fun. This day we covered The Safari World and Marine Park. We watched the amazing Dolphin Show, Elephant Show, Sea Lion Show, and Orang Utan Show and also saw many species of animals and birds. One more add-on was the 20 minutes River Safari which was quite thrilling on its own. Now we were taken to the jungle safari where were introduced so many wild animals in their natural habitat, and Marine Park houses. Also, in the night, we went for the Chao Phraya River Cruise (a must add-on to the itinerary when visiting Bangkok).
Going on our first romantic trip to Thailand really turned out to be a great idea. In only 6 days, we were able to explore Thailand like a pro (thanks to the perfect itinerary by TravelTriangle). There we went to various famous places such as Phuket, Bangkok, Phi Phi Island, Safari World and many more. And I must say that there we all enjoyed a lot. The beaches in Thailand were so vast, clean and beautiful that we were not in a mood to leave them. So, from my experience, I can say that Thailand is really a very nice place to visit on vacation and you must go there if you haven’t and I am sure that you will also enjoy a lot there.
