Asia

Bangkok, Thailand

sunny 31 °C

Day One (Part One): Second country I will be visiting from Asia is Bangkok, Thailand. When I was planning my trip, I decided to go to Bangkok, Thailand because one of my favorite YouTuber/Rapper (TimothyDeLaGhetto) is from here! In Thai, Bangkok is known as the "City of Angels", a name which may be a little misguided. Bangkok is the capital and largest city of Thailand, a magnetic and impressive city with many attractions for travelers. Bangkok offers a snap-shot of the cultural makeup of Thailand, since it is inhabited by people from throughout the country. Another reason why I always wanted to visit Bangkok was because of the beautiful beaches here! I haven't been to a beach since I was little, so now I can finally visit one again! It takes about 3 hours to get to Bangkok so for now, I'll be taking a nap until we land. 3 hours later, it was time to exit the plane. I took my luggage off the rack, exit the plane, and went into the 'Arrivals area'. I then made my way down to the exit of Suvarnabhumi airport, and called a taxi to go to 'Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn' which is a four star hotel for $110 per night. I will be staying at this hotel for the next three days. When I arrived at my hotel, I checked in, and went to my room to set down my luggage.

Day One (Part Two):
After checking into my hotel, I decided to take a walk around the city of Bangkok. It was still early, so I had time to visit an attraction today. Bangkok is really a beautiful place to visit, with such friendly people. I then went back to my hotel and decided to go visit the 'Grand Palace' which is a complex of buildings. Many people have said that the Grand Palace looks enchanted at night, so I decided to go in the evening. For now, I'll go window shopping, work out at the fitness center, and then go in the swimming pool at the hotel. When I was finished my window shopping, I went back to my hotel to work out at the gym for about two hours. After working out, since I was worn out, I went into the swimming pool to just relax. Several hours later when it was beginning to get dark a bit, I went back to my room, changed into different clothes and went to the lounge to have dinner. Once I was finished eating dinner, I called a taxi to go to the Grand Palace. The Grand Palace had a very impressive architecture and temples inside the palace. Everything was breathtaking! The details and colors were amazing. I spent at least 3 hours at the palace, but it was beginning to get really hot in there, so I left early. I called a taxi to go back to my hotel, changed into my PJs then went to sleep.

Day Two:
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore the city of Bangkok on my second day! Today, I will be visiting Wat Phra Kaew which is the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand. I love history, and I'm quite into Buddhism so I'm quite interested in visiting this temple today. I head down to the lounge to eat breakfast first, then go shopping for a bit. I decided that each country I'll be going to, I would want to go shopping and buy a little something to remind me of my experience there. After going shopping, I head back to the hotel to drop off my bags and walk to Wat Phra Kaew which is only thirty minutes away from my hotel. Once I finally get there, I buy my ticket and enter the temple. Wat Phra Kaew really was a great piece of Thai Culture. Since it was a sunny day outside, the temple looked incredible, quite fairy tale-like. The Emerald Buddha was especially crafted nicely. After several hours, I left to get some dinner from a nearby fast food restaurant. From there, I took a taxi and went back to my hotel. When I arrived back at my hotel, I went straight to my room, changed into my PJs, and went to sleep.

Day Three:
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore Bangkok on my last day. This time, I will be visiting Safari World, which is a sight seeing in Bangkok. I head down to the lounge to eat breakfast, then call a taxi to go to Safari World. When I arrive, I buy my ticket and enter. The Safari World has got a variety of animals such as Giraffes, Camels, Hippopotamus, Tigers, Zebras, Lions and many more. The Safari World was a great experience, I did many fun things such as go to the dolphin show, feed the giraffes, and many more. It didn't take me long to realize that Safari World isn't just an ordinary zoo, you get to see animals live freely in the massive park. The animals can get close to you and won't do any harm. I also went to the stunt and cowboy show too which was amusing! I love animals, so I spent hours staying at Safari World. It was so nice to see so much wildlife and just seeing the animals living freely. Several hours later, I took a taxi back to my hotel, ate dinner in the lounge, and headed back to my room. I packed my clothes into my luggage, changed into my PJs, set my alarm to 6:00 for my flight to Tokyo, Japan and went to sleep.

Day Four (Departure from Bangkok, Thailand to Tokyo, Japan):
My alarm woke me up at 6:00 a.m, I brush my teeth, get ready, get all my luggage and head down to the lounge to quickly eat breakfast. When I'm done eating, I call a taxi to go to Suvarnabhumi airport. Once I get there, I find the 'Departing to Tokyo' sign and go there where people are lined up to enter the plane. An hour later, I finally board the plane, set my luggage on the rack and take a nap as the plane leaves Bangkok to fly to Tokyo.
