Day 1

So I’m going to share my first solo trip story here and in a way this is my blog type write up. So I decided to travel Solo to achieve my Dream of doing Skydive so I decided to visit Pattaya, I know what you all are thinking that “ Rehne de pattaya solo “ we know why you going there but things are not like that. I traveled solo to do only Skydive.

So I decided to take a late night flight so I should not waste any time in traveling in the day time . Once I reached Bangkok airport I booked a cab and stared my journey to Pattaya also known as city of Angels. it took approximately 2-2:30 hrs to reach there.

First thing is to check in at hotel and so do I check in at hotel ( I’m not a budget traveller so for budget constraint one can book hotel or hostel as one want ) mine was Hilton Pattaya . Taken rest and in the evening went for a walk around hotel.

In the mean time I have booked the Skydive session for the next day ( Tip : please book your dive in advance I was lucky enough I got a booking after talking and trying to make them realize my situation but no one know you will get lucky or not ). They called me and told me to get ready by 6 in the morning they will pick me up. So I went to bed early that night because I have to wake up early the next day

Day 2

The day I was waiting for soooo long finally arrived. I wake up at 4 am because I was not able to sleep due to excitement I would experience later . I was in the hotel lobby 5:3o not to miss my pick up . In the mean time I was engaged while watching that boys and aged men bringing hot chicks with them and then I realize why people were saying that “ we know why you going there solo. but I wan not into all that and so is pattaya . As promised Van came to pick me up at 6 and I was there . Actually it take approximately 1 hr to reach to the airstrip where they perform Tandem Skydive after my pick up they pick 9 more people and I was only Indian in the whole van realizing why no Indian try this ?

Once we reach the establishment we were asked to fill a form and choose the jump package with all the different classifications and measure our weight because if you weight more you have to shell out more and yes one thing more ( note : if you pay by card you will be charged more for card usage remember that because I pay using card ) and now we waiting for our jump. Not able to click pics because our phones were in the locker area.

And so I finally done my dream it was MAGICAL and we should definitely try this atleast once because life not always give second chance

Now after the dive they drove me back to hotel and now I’m free to explore the city on my own. After getting my lunch I took a bike taxi they are convenient and cheap compared to cab. My next stop was Santuary of Truth.

Entry ticket is a bit high 500 bhat but one time visit is must . This is kind of temple made entirely of wood and inside the premises you gonna see goddess stature carved out of wood. This place is purely magical and peaceful you will fell in love with it.
