January of this year, I had promised myself that I will stop with the touristy things I do when I travel because of the cringy-ness I associated with them, but this time I couldn't stop myself. Just couldn't.
Thailand was a trip my mom and I were planning since 2 months now. The tickets were cheap, visa was free and we were ready to add the first international trip in our long-list of mommy-daughter travels. Here's a list of touristy but utterly fun things I did in Bangkok which I couldn't have done anywhere else -
Getting Kissed By An Orangutan
While I am an advocate for animal rights, I was assured that the animals in the Safari World, Bangkok were well-treated and lived happily. The ape kiss was such an adorable addition to the trip. Her grip was super-tight but she was very well-behaved at the same time. Thailand is pretty open-minded, so my mom also decided to embrace this weird creature wearing a bra!
Celebrating My Birthday At The Party Street Of Khao San
I was super stoked about this particular tourist spot, as I should have been. From inhaling helium balloons by shady men to asking this balloon vendor to let me hold these balloons! Was I hoping that I would fly off? I am not sure. But I did it anyway.
