Thailand.. what can I say except : WOW
Why did I choose Thailand ?
Since I'm child my passion is about Big Cats.
I love their beauty and it was my dream to touch them, so when I knew that I could do it in Thailand, I didn't think twice.
I went over there with my mum via a tour of 15 days. ( she didn't want to do this trip by ourselves)
We arrived around 6 AM in Bangkok,no time to take a nap, I wanted to go to the Safari World in Bangkok.
There, I could see a dolphins show, saw a lot of animals and I could touch some giraffes.
The night, I was really exhausted and I knew that it was just the beginning of the trip ( The South to the North ).
The next day, we ve met the people of our group who were really nice, we were along with a guy and his cousin and they came with us most of the time.
We visited temples, Patpong market, the floating market in Damnoen, I touched a snake for the first time, saw monkeys in Lopburi,went in a nightclub in our hotel which was amazing, saw Chiang Rai and finally arrived in Chiang Mai.
TRIP : (BANGKOK/ DAMNOEN SADUAK / AYUTHAYA / LOPBURI / PHITSANULOKE / SUKHOTHAI / PHRAE / PHRA YAO / CHIANG RAI / MAE CHAN / DOITUNG / CHIANG MAI)
Chiang Mai => we' ve been to the Night Safari, where you are in an open- bus and then we could see and touched animals (giraffe, zebra .. )
I pat my first baby white tiger in this park.
The next day => direction the Tiger Kingdom
We had such a great time there, we spent 20/30 min with babies,smalls,mediums and bigs.
At this time, it was the best day of my life.
Then we took a taxi to go to a Snake Farm,saw a temple with the rest of the group, came back to our hotel,saw the night market and we went for a Karaoke.
The next day , we had an elephant ride which was impressive as they are quiet big, a bamboo ride on the river and we went to a crocodile farm.
After that, we took the night train to go back to Bangkok.
Kanchanaburi is a nice area with the river Kwai, but what I rather prefer Chiand Mai than this region of Thailand.
In Kanchanaburi I've been to the other temple of tiger , where they drugged them.
I hope that this place will close soon..
Next day, we headed to Cha Am to enjoy beaches and have some relaxation with the group ,
( nothing special, we can def skip it ).
Following the trip, we went to Phuket
Once arrived, we could notice that our hotel was quiet far from beaches and we were little bit disappointed about that.
Other things that I could say is that Phuket is very touristi and expensive,they try to sell you things at the price in France which is ridiculous.
In Phuket, as in another place in Thailand you can get some cheap massages or also go for some excursions.
When I feel sad I just think again at this trip and only good memories comes up and it's really helpful.
As I said it's thanks to this experience that I changed a lot,
When I came back home I was not the same person.
I recommend to everybody to go and discover this wonderful country.
I realized how lucky I was to live in the "rich country" and how people over there are able to smile even if they have nothing.
After this trip I wanted to get a tiger tatoo, unfortunetly the one I wanted was too big for my back, that's why I changed it on " enjoy your life" <3
