Thailand: From the Beaches of Phuket to the Bustling Streets of Bangkok

Thailand: From the Beaches of Phuket to the Bustling Streets of Bangkok

Thailand has always been a dream destination for us. We were finally able to make it happen with our six-day itinerary, which included Phuket, Pattaya, and Bangkok.

Our journey began on a high note as we arrived at Phuket by EK 378. We transferred directly to the Grand Mercure Phuket, which was our home for the next two nights. The hotel was lovely, and our stay was nothing short of comfortable.

Our first tour was to Phi Phi Island. We were picked up from the lobby at 7:00 am and taken on an exciting journey by speed boat. The island was beautiful, with crystal clear waters and pristine beaches. However, the island was far too crowded with tourists, so we opted to explore the luscious green wilderness and managed to take some great photos in the wild.

We enjoyed a sumptuous lunch, which was a delightful treat after a day full of adventure.

The following day was all about leisure. We strolled around the hotel premises and soaked up the sun by the pool. However, our evening was reserved for the Fantasea show, and we were excited to see what it had in store for us. The show was a feast for our senses, with an incredible display of lights, sounds, and colors. The food was also delicious, and we enjoyed every bit of it.

On the third day, we checked out from Grand Mercure Phuket and moved to Pattaya. We arrived at the Royal Cliff Beach, which was our home for the next two nights. The hotel was beautiful, and our room had a breathtaking view of the sea.

Our first tour in Pattaya was to Coral Island, and we were picked up from the lobby at 8:30 am. The island was stunning, and we were thrilled to go for a swim in the crystal clear waters. We enjoyed a sumptuous lunch on the island and returned to our hotel, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

The next day, we moved to Bangkok and checked-in at The Westin Grand Sukhumvit. We had an exciting evening planned as we were picked up for the Siam Niramit show with dinner. The show was a cultural extravaganza that showcased Thailand’s rich heritage and history. The dinner was delicious, and we enjoyed the evening to the fullest.

On the fifth day, we embarked on a journey to the Damnernsaduak floating market and Kanchanaburi Tiger temple. We enjoyed a local lunch and explored the beautiful market, which was a visual treat. We then visited the Tiger temple, which was a unique experience. We had a great time interacting with the tigers and capturing some incredible memories.

Our final day in Bangkok was all about leisure, and we spent it lounging in the hotel room. However, our evening was reserved for dinner on Chao Phaya Princess cruise. The dinner was a lavish spread of Thai delicacies, and we enjoyed the beautiful sights of the city from the river.

We had an incredible time in Thailand, and the itinerary planned by our travel agent made it even better. It was an adventure of a lifetime, and we cherished every moment of it.
