Thailand--- Party & Adventure freakin trip- New year week

Tripoto
31st Jan 2019
Day 2

As our flight landed, we rushed to first fill immigration card & then visa on arrival form. We submitted them with mandatory docs like prints of return flight ticket, hotel booking and passport size photo. If satisfied, the staff there will give you immigration card. Then you have to join the lane to pass through immigration channel where immigration officer will stamp your passport and you have officially entered thailand. After that we collected our baggage & also took sim card (costing 600 baht with talktime, data & activated on the spot. I would suggest to activate sim from airport as no major cost diff outside). Then we have taken 1st bus from airport (bus booking counter at gate 9 of arrival, 5:30 am, 2hr journey) towards pattaya. Bus will drop at various junxs in pattaya & you can choose depending on your stay.

Day 1

My trip to thailand was for 2 weeks & it started from pattaya (north thailand- 1st stop) and ended at phuket (south thailand-6th) via bangkok (2nd), koh phangan (3rd), krabi (4th), phi phi(5th). This is the best route/sequence/itinerary to travel across the thailand

Come in, I am taking you through the best days of my life spent in thailand & I hope you will able to feel the vibes after reading the whole journey.

My journey begin at high note as we 3 freakin bachelors were getting high with whiskey at Plaza Premium lounge of Terminal 3, IGI Airport, Delhi. Those who dont know, you can enjoy alcolohic beverages & food alongwith comfortable sofa seat in lounge just at Rs. 25 (only for premium debit/ credit card). So, I would suggest to reach airport atleast 3hrs prior to boarding time. It was cheapest flight (spicejet airlines on yatra.com) of 4 hrs & we reach bangkok (suvarnabhumi airport) around 2:30 am.

Day 2

I have booked 5 star Hotel- Royal cliff beach resort for 2 nights( via Goibibo for just Rs.12000 per night for 3 guests). Since, almost all hotels are guest friendly (you can bring your girl at night), so don't worry about this factor while choosing accommodation. Resort has infinity pool, own beach & best ocean view rooms. I highly recommend to stay at royal cliff resort if you visit pattaya with friends or family. At afternoon, we enjoyed sometime in infinity pool. Then, we took bikes on rent from patong street (250 baht per day) and have some food at Indian restaurant there (Best are chotiwala, Indian by nature, Indigo & many more all near the pattaya beach).

At night, we visited the most famous & vibrant street of pattaya - the walking street. Street is full of night clubs, strip clubs, go go bar & most importantingly beautiful girls. If you want, you can take what you like to your Hotel. Save yourself from getting scam by russian bars which will take money & will not fulfill their commitment.

Day 3


Our 2nd day in pattaya & we wanted to see some famous spots. We started our day by visiting Underwater World, they have 3-4 zones like shark zone, jelly fish etc. & Ticket was around 1000 baht/head. So, if you havent visited any aquarium, then I will recommend to visit here.

After that, we visited 'Sanctuary of truth' which is a architecture monument made out of wood and ticket price is 500 baht. Reco for those, who have interest in monuments/architect. Then after that we went towards jomitien beach which is good one to enjoy sea, sand & beer.

In the evening, we want to relax & enjoy the nature & breeze. So, we went to jomtien beach which is more peaceful than north pattaya beach. We enjoy lion & chang beer there & socialize with some europeans there.

At night, we went to 9pm show of Alcazer show costing around 800 baht per head. This is kind of dance musical show highlighting the royal culture of thailand. You must go for another option i.e tiffany cabaret show, artist are ladyboy & its more authentic show. I got trapped in high online ratings of alcazer show which are generally manipulated. After watching this 1 hour show, we roam on the streets of pattaya & enjoyed nightlife again at walking street.

Day 4

Its time to travel to bangkok for 2 night stay. We catch the 11 am bus to bangkok  (fare 120 baht) & reach there around 2pm. Then took a taxi (15km, 220 baht) towards our hostel near khao san road.

We reached mad monkey hostel which I have booked on hostelworld mobile app. A 4 bed dorm was below average but nice cafe, swimming pool, best crowd & best location makes this hostel favourite among backpackers. You can also go for Slumber party hostel in bangkok.

In evening, there was very beautiful german girl in hostel staff. I fell in love when i first saw her. She was sexsy beyond imagination. I said same to here & she replied evryone says the same. I clicked some photos & have good conversation with her. She was anchoring some activities like beer pong etc & I partictpated in that & have fun with other travellers from europe, australia etc.

At night, we visited sky bar, Lebua. Its a bar on 63 floor from where you can have a mesmerizing view of the whole bangkok city.
Its get very popular after getting featured in Hollywood movie Hangover-2. Its mandatory to order atleast 1 drink costing 700baht. But its worth it.
We clicked some best photos there. There were two very beautiful tall curvy russian girls out there & we didnt leave tht place till the girls were there. Ofcourse "Men will be Men".

Day 5


Its 2nd day in bangkok & we took a taxi to floating market 100km from main city. It charge us around 1000baht total round trip. Although, there are many floating market, this one is most famous. After reaching there, you can buy ticket for small boat costing 1000 baht / head. It will show you the whole floating market surrounded around a canal.

Its interesting to buy or sell on a boat. You can also taste cocunut ice cream etc sell by boat vendors.

As chatuchak market(most famous street market in whole thailand) is close (open only on weekends), we went to alternative i.e Indra square. There we bought belt, bag & toys for our family.

You can also add Wat Arun or Grand palace to itinerary if you are fond of monument or culture etc.

After that, we get back to mad monkey hostel on tuk tuk. In thailand, every city have their own version of tuk tuk. Best version is in bangkok & we enjoyed our tuk tuk ride.

In hostel, I was goin towards a pool area & near the pool a maurtius island girl was sitting whose cocktail got fell on floor by my foot. I buy her new drink & in return i made a new frnd. We have a good conversation, she came with me in pool & we played some games of volleyball.

Afterthat, my two friends went to some red light district. While I took her to khao san road which is famous for its nightlife in bangkok. Imagine everybody dancing on roads, exactly same is scene there at khao san. Lucky bar is the best disco there. We have some drinks, intimate dance & a kiss.

Next day she left for Paris & I headed towards my next destination in thailand.

Day 7

2nd day in koh phangan. We did best utilization of the day- Do nothing.  Played volley ball with romanian girls group on beach, relax around the beach, played table tennis. Socializing is very important aspect of travelling. When you stay at Hostels you get oppurt to interact with people across globe, make frnds & know their culture. I made frnds from Canada, germany, UK etc which are still in touch on instagram with me. At night, I book Scuba diving package for next day.

Day 8

Best location for scuba diving in thailand is koh tao. Unfortunatly, we cudnt go there. But sail rock is also a very good place for scuba diving (2500 baht per head for uncertified divers by 'Asia blue scuba divers). We were picked from our hostel early 7 o clock in morng & then were boarded ferry to sail rock. In 45min journey, our australian diver told us about the  equipment & sign language. Also lunch & breakfast was given to us on ferry.

Scuba diving is not so easy. If you get panic inside water, then it can cause a lot of trouble. My both friends failed to go deep as they were panicking a lot. But I stayed calm & enjoyed marine life for 45 mins & 15 metre deep into the ocean along with rescue aussi diver with me. Its a grt experience & I would like to certified soon.

On our ferry, there were 2 most beutiful girls I have ever seen in my life. Time with them on ferry was memorable.

Day 9

We took a taxi +ferry+ bus ticket towards krabi last night from a travel agent in koh phangan (500 baht /head).It was a 6 hour journey & we reach at 2pm

We checked into slumber party hostel. This is chain of hostel & their krabi hostel is oldest one. We were very excited to stay in this hostel as it was famous for its open culture like naked girls,whole night party. We stayed in 8 bed dorms. Dorms are like big almirah. Beds are very uncomfortable. But the people there were crazy. Only curtains in bathroom & sharing room & bathroom with girls was amazing. You probably be lucky to get laid. There are bright chances.

In the evening, the atmosphere get rockin at hostel. Its ground floor cafe filled with crazy people playing beer pong games & chanting hola hola. this kind of scene is very common across all hostels in thailand.

Then took us to pub crawl to diff bars in krabi.
I have made friend with beautiful norway girls from our hostel & enjoyed some dance moves with them. Then one of them kiss me & they both left. I have skill to attract girls on dance floor. Bcoz of that, I get hooked with a white south african girl & dance on a bar top with her. 4- 5 hrs of non stop dancing with these girl make ny night memorable.

Day 10

Next day, we went for island tour (600 baht/head, includin beer, lunch) organised by slumber party. There were two boats of our hostel with 25 people each. It was an awesome experience with these 50 guys. They took us to some beautiful hidden beaches. All islands were unique in itself.

At 2nd island, the tour head took us to explore a cave. There I met two russian girls & immediately become frnds. We were dancing without any music. Then we returned to that island beach from cave. I was enjoyin my time at beach, then that russian girl approached me to swim with her. I was very happy tht she approached me. I was on cloud nine. Then after sometime, our tour guide called us to onboard the ferry to next island. My story with russian grl cum to an unfinished end.

Then we were taken to some more islands, do snorkelling etc. Nature is at its best at islands in krabi bcoz of green hills in ocean.

Then after party on boat, we didnt stop partying. We went into the pool party on beach at ibiza pool party. Another famous party of that place. There I met an Italian girl & we get too cozy in pool. She was like an angel & its didnt feel like we met first time. We enjoyed a lot together more than I can wish for. It started rainin & pool party becomes more rockin. What more you can ask for. Then we dance on the beach on the music coming out from bars.
Also, we were stayin at same hostel. We spent the night together.

Day 12

Its 31st december. We have a bookin in 5 star in phuket. My friends left for phuket. But, I liked phi phi so much that I modified my plan & stayed at phi phi for new year eve. I highly recommed phi phi for new year eve. Every fuckin guy prefer phi phi. Also, I have new italian gf, so I have one more reason.

We spent some grt time together, visited banana bar, do some shopping.

At night, we again go to ibiza pool party & got drunk there. After that, i got separated from here. The atmosphere on phi phi beach was insane because its new year eve. Also, all people get together to party on beach, all bars, famous hostels on that single beach & all these factors consolidate to make that beach the best place to party in thailand. Since I lost contact with my italian gf, I was dancin with other girls.

Now, I am sharing the most craziest thing I done there. I approached the most beautiful girl on the beach although I am an average looking guy. She was american. We danced together for 5 mins very intimately. Then she started smouching me. Honestly, We smouched for minimum 2hrs on the beach & people in the end of our smouch, clapped for us. We got completely physical on beach. The love that I share with that american girl was insane. In this way my new year started.

Day 13

Next day I took a ferry to phuket & joined my frnds there.

This is the best resort of phuket that i have booked although very costly for 2 night. But I reached 1 day late & enjoyed the resort for one day only. Its on the best location of phuket right in front of the patong beach.

In the evening, we roam on bangla street famous for its strip club, go go bar. Phuket is more like pattaya & is for one with big pockets.

Next day, we have flight back to Delhi via Kaula lampur by AirAsia carrier.

In this way, my 13 day journey came to an end.
