'First International trip' - 3 words could explain my entire emotion to the one who has been on his first international trip and even the one who is planning for his first. I don't need any adjective to explain it. Those aren't even words but emotions.
From a group of 10, 7 of them hadn't been on an international trip. So one could imagine the level of enthusiasm and energy in the group. Also for a bunch of young bachelors what better than Thailand could have possibly been the best destination!
Our enthusiasm sky rocketing through the sky, we reached the airport 4hrs prior. Checked in and ran like 3 yr old kids to the duty free area. Shopping for alcohol ofcourse 😂 Each one picked something for either their friends or family. And spent a good 1.5hrs there.
Ok so 7 of us were travelling to an international destination for the first time and 3 amongst those were flying for the first time. Basically this trip was full of 'firsts'. We boarded the flight, had an amazing tasty dinner and dozed of. We were to land in the morning at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport,Bangkok.
As soon as we landed, we started filling the visa application forms(Because Indians - We love everything that's free) and stood in the queue. Didn't take us more than 2hrs for the whole process to be completed. We collected our luggage and were waiting for our private coach in bus. The bus had already arrived, but due to some miscommunication we couldn't find it for about 45mins. Somehow we found and hopped in the bus to go towards Pattaya. It was about 2 hrs drive from the airport.
Checked in at the 'Golden Sea Pattaya Hotel' freshened up. We had interesting stuff lined up for the evening.
We went for the world famous transgender cabaret show 'The Alcazar Show'.
Alcazar Cabaret can successfully blend the art of acting, stage design, costumes & the sequence of the shows so well to be impressed by every one of all ages. You can't make out wherever the beautiful dancers are transgenders or ladies. They are very graceful with every move. By the end of it the audience is in awe of the dancers, Their stage presence, the grandeur of the set, their shining costumes, the songs, everything makes it a must visit for everyone. It won't disappoint you even for a minute. Your eyes would be glued to the stage through the hour and a half long performance. Don't miss it ever!
Post an stupendous performance by the crew, we went for dinner at an Indian restaurant. There are way too many Indian restaurants in the country.
The walk to the walking street was about 20mins from the restaurant. As we strolled down the streets of Pattaya we could see n number of massage shops. Every next shop was a massage shop with ladies and ladyboys calming various nerves of the human body :p
The vibe of the walking street is completely different. It is Thailand's biggest, naughtiest and busiest party hot spot. Every building in this stretch is either a beer bar, go go bar;) , nightclub or a restaurant.
We spent the night strolling on the streets and were stunned with the views. Also spent some time by the beach.
