Thailand 2015

Monday, May 11, 2015
Hello everyone! As promised, here is my travel post about Thailand. I won't really be blogging about the whole 6 days I was in Thailand, but instead I'll just be focusing on the parts where we went on a tour. I will be blogging more about the experience rather than the food. (Which, by the way, were mostly spicy!)

We arrived on April 30th (Thursday) and it was quite hot, but it was a beautiful place!


We stayed in the Erawan Grand Hyatt hotel. It was a really great hotel and we had a pleasant stay.




As I said, it was a hot day so I just indulged on a flower shaped chocolate ice cream! (This was still on Thursday)




1st Tour Day (Friday)
We went to the "Bang Pa In Palace". It was all really grand! See for yourself in the photos below. They also had a dress code that you had to follow before coming in.




Good thing we were riding a golf cart to roam around. It was a hot day and the golf cart was really convenient.











Then, we went to Wat Yai Chaimongkol- it was a Buddhist temple in Ayutthaya. I heard that it has a rich history, but I'm not really sure what it was about. Although, one thing's for sure, the structures were beautiful!





They said that if you press a coin against the wall and it sticks, you will have good luck. And if it falls, then you will have bad luck. Luckily for me, it sticked! 







Then, we went elephant riding. It was a fun and unforgettable experience!


On Saturday, we just shopped and on Sunday, we just swam in the hotel's swimming pool.









2nd Tour Day (Monday)
We went to the floating market, and to get there you had to ride a boat!




After the floating market, we travelled to the JEATH war museum. I learned a lot of new things about Thailand's history in this very museum! 




After visiting the JEATH war museum, we had lunch in a restaurant nearby the River Kwai Bridge. We also got to walk through the bridge!

Overall, it was a really great and relaxing experience. We weren't really able to explore all of the sites in Thailand, so I'd definitely come back in the future to see more!
