International destinations have a different kind of OOMPH in it. For someone, who is 23, which country pops up to your mind when you get hold of your passport for the first time?
Thats right...the Land of Smiles - THAILAND!!
A country with amazing people, beautiful landscapes and eye-glittering picturesque. So there it was...booked tickets...searched google...researched and the itinerary was ready-
Kolkata-Bangkok-Pattaya-Phuket-Phi Phi Islands-Krabi Islands-Bangkok-Kolkata.
It was a 7 day trip.
In this article, I'll be sharing the KOLKATA-BANGKOK-PATTAYA-PHUKET story. In order to do justice to the magnificent islands of Phi Phi and Krabi, i'll be publishing a separate article.
Being a backpacker, budget trips are my preferred way of exploring and this trip was more of a natural streak rather than a cultural streak. So, the chief places of interest in this trip was mostly the colorful streets, blue sea, the green islands, the white beaches and of course, the lip-smacking food and beer. So dont expect any exploration of the temples or zoo or aquariums or theatrical shows in here!
VISA: Visa on Arrival (FREE!). Takes at least 1.5 hours in the queue at the airport.
HOTELS: Unbooked (except, for my stay at Pattaya for the 1st 2 days...as it comes handy getting through the visa process if you show your stay along with the return flight tickets)
BUDGET: undecided (at the beginning of the trip), THOUGH CARRYING 10000 BAHT/ PERSON or for couple or family- 15000 baht IS MANDATORY OR YOU MAY BE SENT HOME!!!
CONNECTION: SIM cards are available for 250baht (rs. 500) at the airport with unlimited calling in the country and unlimited 4g services.
SAVIOR: 7/11 Stores. You'll get everything over there. Yes Everything!!
Hopes: HIGH!! SOARING!!
