Day 2

This day we planned to visit the famous  places by BTS , it is a metro here and it is quite costly than Indian metro. We visited China town which is Asia's biggest China town and you can find many restaurants and places where you will feel that u are actually in China.

We roamed around 13 km by foot for exploring whole Bangkok as the taxi operator were charging enormous amount. So we just took bus and reached nearby location by foot. We also visited float market and buddha temple Phra That Lampang Luang which was built around 13th century.

The second place was area nearby Chao phraya river which was also famous for ferry ride experience.  After that we went to local food canteen and choose vermicelli to order. "Do not say spicy" because you cannot eat their spicy chillies.

After somewhat local sightseeing we returned to sukhumvit area which is well known for its nightlife. Soi Cowboy and Nana plaza are the two nightlife area where you can see enormous crowd for party , entertainment,  and etc.

No body will touch you until you touch them "Keep this in mind".
They barely know English and very weak in English so rely on Google translate or learn some thai words for easy message convey.

Drugs are strictly ban in Thailand and you can get imprisonment for this. So if you are thinking in that way that you may change your plan. Street foods are nice if you are not a Five star restaurant eater and want your trip to be cheap and amazing.

Day 5

Today is the last day of our trip and we started 7 in the morning and reach nearby pear and then took cruise . This is the most ultimate moment of my life. If you are a water lover then be close to deck to enjoy every single wave. We was short of days so we just stayed at phi phi island for 4 hours but you can plan 1 or 2 day plan to stay and explore nearby area. Sea is as clear as glass and you will enjoy inside the sea as long as you can. After having package lunch we at 3 PM took same cruise for Phuket and at 5pm we reach Phuket from where we were drop by service provide at airport from where we took our flight to Bangkok by air Asia and from suvarnabhoomi airport we returned back to India.

====================================
Some people take Thailand trip in a very negative way because of its nightlife but I am sure that you can rejuvenate yourself by its beauty and nature.

So give up that Thailand fear spread by many people and enjoy a life changing experience.
