An Exciting Account of Travelling in Thailand

Riddhi Bhattacharya

Rejuvenation? Well, what better place than Thailand. Thailand becomes the second international travel destination and the second part of this travel series!

Thailand – June 2012

Age – 9 years

Point 1: Phuket

This island paradise in Thailand surprised me with its hidden delights. The varied geography of Phuket allowed for beautiful scenery and a wide range of activities. The beauties of Phuket were boasted by Wat Khao Rang, where you can find Buddha statues made up of Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Wat Suwan Khuha or ‘temple cave’ located inside a limestone cave is also an absolute beauty where the largest part of the cave houses a 15-meter reclining Buddha image.

Offering entertainment on a grand scale the Phuket Fantasea Show is an entertainment area filled with a range of entertainment and activities for all. There is a 4000 seat restaurant serving up a humongous buffet of both Thai and international food, a Las-Vegas style theater show that showcases the best of Thailand’s myths and mysteries. A carnival village, shopping complex, and handicrafts section also compete for your time and attention. With so much to do it is best to arrive early to give yourself the time to see it all.

Point 2: Phi Phi Islands

We spent only an afternoon at Phi Phi Islands after a rocky and nauseous cruise from Phuket. To me, Phi Phi Island is perfect for you to just enjoy the serene beauty and experience the warm, tropical currents. It is a picturesque scene which I personally remember from the famous Bollywood movie, Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai!

Point 3: Bangkok

Bangkok Probal Bhattacharya

Bangkok was the typical urban, capital-of -the-country like city. With high-rising skyscrapers, lavish restaurants and a floating market – Bangkok is a place for thrill. At Bangkok, there was a little cozy restaurant bang opposite to the hotel we were lodging at. They served the most delicious fried rice I have ever tasted and somehow the environment and food at that restaurant stands out as a very unique figment of my imagination.

Safari World Bangkok is one of the top interesting things to do in Bangkok for travelers with kids of my age back then. A visit to Safari World Bangkok will bring you in-depth knowledge of the animal world, laughter, and thrills at the shows, as well as the unique desserts you cannot find elsewhere. Feeding the giraffes and having them drip saliva on your floor is equally thrilling and disgusting! The  Marine World in the afternoon was exceptionally spectacular and cool compared to the hot, sticky, and sunny environment outside.

There was as far as I can reccollect, a comedy-centric boxing show between orangutans dressed in boxers and bikinis followed by a Cowboy Stunt Show that brings you to an actual Westside of the States, where the cool cowboys and cowgirls conquer the wooden pubs while the gunfights roam the sky (absolutely hated this part)! My highlight at the Safari World was truly the Dolphin and Sea Walrus show where their cuteness and intelligence is portrayed with their amazing talent at doing water flips and dances.

Point 4: The Tiger Temple

The Thailand Tiger Temple Probal Bhattacharya

Finally, my favorite part of the trip – The Tiger Temple. A few hours from Bangkok, there was this amazing Tiger Monastery which had both matured tigers and their cubs. What stands out to me about this experience was when a couple of other tourists, my parents and I were watching a monk take a baby tiger into its little habitat, and on the way there, he spotted me – the only kid.

He called out to me and said, “Why don’t you join me to take the tiger inside?“. I was shocked and scared and straight off refused but my parents were persistent and forced me to enter the circular habitat. Believe me, for about thirty seconds I slowly walked around the peripheral circumference of the ring trying to keep my distance from the tiger and the tiger just simple —– followed me around.

Finally, the monk got it to settle down and then called me to come and pat it. With little steps, I walked towards the baby and surprisingly it didn’t budge, it let me sit beside, it let me a pat and even gave me a tiny lick on the face (covered my entire face with saliva basically).

Then suddenly, walks in its mother – a big, fully-grown, mature tiger. She looks me in the eye and just walks by and sits down on what we later learned was her lunch spot. The monk took my parents and I to the mother tiger took out a tiny feeding bottle (literally the ones we use to feed babies) and showed it to the tiger who calmly started drinking the milk from the feeding bottle and as we gather around for a picture, I am like – WHAT!?

Best Moment:

Definitely the experience at The Tiger Temple!

P.S: All picture credits goes to my father!
