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.

Later in the afternoon we went out to see the Sanctuary of Truth. This is an intricately carved wooden temple at the sea side. They have preserved remains of Buddha here which is one of the main attractions. We managed to capture some amazing pictures here. We spent all of our evening here. Afterwards we headed to the walking street which is a lane by the beach road. It comes alive in the evening and flocked by a lot of people mostly tourists. This is the nightlife in Pattaya. We chilled for a while before heading to our hostel.

Place to get something for your loved ones <3 and yeah one gets life time warranty and also the certificate for the item you got. Photography is strictly prohibited inside.
Nong Nooch Village and Tropical Garden Pattaya Thailand
Nong Nooch offers a delightful experience for travelers seeking for nature and cultural beauty. We totally recommend this place for the Thai Cultural show, the Elephant show and its beautiful botanical garden. Apparently, Nong Nooch's botanical garden is considered to be the biggest and most beautiful in entire South East Asia and we couldn't agree more! Tip: Take a tour to Nong Nooch Village by yourself as we mentioned earlier, the group tours are always in a hurry and you might just miss a beautiful place if you go with them.

If you are looking for a place to spend 2-3 hours and click some good pictures, i would suggest to visit the Mini Siam. This place is filled with miniature versions of many landmarks from Europe and Asia too
The Million Years Stone Park & Pattaya Crocodile Farm Nong Pla Lai Chon Buri Thailand
Million Years Stone Park & Pattaya Crocodile Farm - Too good place where you can find many animals not only crocodiles. You can find giraffe , elephants, tigers, birds and zebra. And yeah as the name says one can find crocodiles everywhere around the park. Collect the route map of the park and follow accordingly which takes 3 hours to roam around. Its not like normal zoo. Can get better experiences with animals when you go around this park. We can feed giraffs , sit next to tiger and make a life time picture out of it :P most importantly crocodile show was amazing. Worth a visit.
The Sanctuary of Truth Pattaya Chon Buri Thailand
What a magnificent wooden structure!! 20 years have gone by and it is still being constructed.. Every wall has a different story carved on it. Every inch is so beautiful!! The Sanctuary of Truth is a must place to visit while you are in Pattaya. The temple is located a few kms away from the town, which in itself makes the temple a serene and beautiful place, worth a visit, apart from its enchanting beauty. It takes about 50thb from 2nd beach road to reach this place in a tuk tuk. Don't forget to visit their workshop where you could see young sculptors working on the carvings. If you love architecture, you might spend hours visiting this place in order to understand the meaning behind the carvings. A glimpse at the photos tagged along and you would know what we are talking about!! Tip: You might want to carry some food/soft drinks/water as it is quite expensive inside the temple premises.
