The first memory I have of Thailand is watching Leonardo Di Caprio diving off a cliff in "The Beach". (If you're a millennial, you probably haven't seen it). The more relatable one is about 10 years ago when everyone and I mean everyone realised just how cheap it was to travel to Thailand.
Names like Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket became synonymous with bachelor and bachelorette parties and somehow I never made it to Thailand. Till now. That's right, I didn't go there for my bachelorette but I did just come back from a lazy ass trip to Bangkok and Hua Hin with my husband.
So if you're like me, who likes to sit on their ass and Netflix as much as possible and who gets tired even when shopping, this blog is for you. Over the next few minutes, I'm going to tell you about my trip and also help you plan a quick trip to Bangkok with your loved ones.
How We Came Up With A Plan
Well, it's very simple. We were sitting in the living room and I realised I was feeling mentally drained. I'd just quit my job (I no longer work at POPxo) and having gone back to working solo, things were hectic since I was still transitioning. With Srijan's work and shows, we had a 5-day window and yup, that's how we booked our tickets. Since it's visa on arrival and I hadn't been there yet, we thought why not?
