Day 2 - Was travel day to Pattaya.Thanks to a very minor accident,we had to postpone the travel to early evening and not morning as planned.We took a bus from Ekkamai bus station to Pattaya.Buses leave on time here and hence it is best to arrive early enough.It gets very humid in Bangkok and hence best to ensure that you consume enough fluids through the day.We arrived at our hotel in Pattaya,relaxed for while before we headed to the streets nearby.Pattaya can be very much on your face initially.Definitely not my favorite place!Travel tip - shared tuk tuks are really cheap.Do ensure that you confirm the price per person before boarding these shared tuk tuks.Day 3 - By now,we were getting used to the weather,food and streets in Thailand.The strong cooking oil odor is everywhere and takes time getting used to.Day 3 started by a walk down the Pattaya beach road.The beach is strictly okay here.Travel Tip - Buy water from 7/11.It would cost anywhere between 9-18 THB.Restaurants charge a lot for bottle of water.After a long walk down the beach road and lunch at an Indian restaurant,we were back at our hotel ready to move back to Bangkok.The bus ride from Pattaya to Bangkok feels very similar to the bus ride from Mumbai to Pune.Since,we had an early morning flight to Phuket next morning,we booked a hotel (G9 Bangkok) closer to the Don Mueng airport.Travel Tip - If you are short of food and it is very late in the day - just walk upto a 711 store and buy packed food for 35-60THB.They would warm it at their store for you to carry back to your hotel.We had to do this because all restaurants in the area had closed by the time we got ready for dinner.If one has time,chatuchak market is a must visit.Day 4 - Travel to Phuket!A very different place compared to cities in North Thailand.The approach to Phuket runway is lovely! There are several small hills dotting the sea below!It looks gorgeous from the top.
Here I was at the Sea Farm Model Royal Project, gazing in disbelief at the massive eels, salt pans and freshly-prepared spa salt. Then came the moment of truth, when I was told to taste the fresh sea weed.

About Nakhon Pathom

Thailand strikes to most of us for its picturistic beaches and as a party hub. Tourists usually flock to Thailand to visit its tranquil islands and white sand beaches in the south or the lush green forests and mountains of Chiang Mai province in the north. But when I decided to visit Thailand for the first time I wanted to experience a whole different side of it, its rich culture and history. Also I had plans to visit Cambodia as well during the trip, so I decided to travel east of Thailand from where I can easily get across the Cambodian border by road. After some research online, I shortlisted three places - Ayutthaya, Phimai and Phanom Rung, histories of which dates back to as early as 10th century.I kick started my trip to Thailand from Pattaya since I had promised to visit a friend there. After spending couple of days each in Pattaya and Bangkok, I set off to Ayutthaya. Ayutthaya is well connected with Bangkok through frequent buses and trains. I decided to take the train as traveling in third class is much cheaper and comfortable option. Also trains are available at every 2-3 hours interval from Hua Lamphong Train Station in Bangkok. Though the trains are slowed down due to the city traffic, once it gets outside the city they are quite faster and takes not more than 3 hours to reach Ayutthaya. Once you in Ayutthaya station, you can just walk across the road and take the ferry boat to the island. However after 6 pm, the boats stop plying and you will need to take a tuk tuk from the station through the bridge connecting to the eastern side of Island. Most of the guest houses are located in the eastern part , so it shouldn't take more than 10-15 mins to reach your accommodation.
