BAGUIO

Bangkok is fascinating part 2

AFTER enjoying a ride at the Elephant Camp, a 30-min drive to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market was easy. We hopped onto decorated long-tail boats that brought us to the market. The roar of the engine disturbed the quiet as our boat glided down the narrow canals and temples, stilt houses and waving children. It felt overcrowded at first glance, but visitors and sellers brought noise and color to the area. There was a variety of goods – from rattan balls, traditional puppets and fresh fruits, to embroidered handbags, noodle soup and wide brimmed bamboo hats. We were given plenty of time to wander around, taste some local produce and take plenty of pictures. The floating market was a wonderful experience.

Cruising along Bangkok’s Chao Praya River is one of the relaxing and entertaining ways of viewing some of the city’s main tourist attractions, like the Grand Palace, Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn), and the Rama VIII Bridge at night. Our buffet dinner included a wide selection of dishes ranging from Thai to International cuisine, appetizers to main dishes to desserts. While relishing our dinner, singers soothed us with soft Pop and Jazz songs. After the feast, some joined the talented musicians with groovy tunes for dancing. We had so much fun and laughter. It was indeed a very fantastic evening to remember!

The Safari World is a major tourist attraction that consists of two parks named Marine Park and Safari Park. Thailand’s greatest showcase of animal magic is the Marine Park. Be it for entertainment or education, it’s the ideal one-stop, non-stop center for fun and discovery. It is full of shows and restaurants. You may not be able to sit for all the shows, so select the best ones you would like to watch. At Safari Park, the best part was when we got to feed giraffes and then went on a safari drive to see tigers, lions, zebras, flamingoes, rhinos, and many more savannah animals. Whether it is an exciting safari drive through the African wilderness, an intimate encounter with friendly dolphins or an exhilarating fast-paced action stunt, Safari World has it all. In conclusion, this is a must-watch attraction.

Being in another country together was thrilling and at the same time, we learned that camaraderie and fellowship on this trip made it a truly memorable and fascinating experience every step of the way.
