North America

Cancun, Mexico

sunny 30 °C

Day One (Part One):The last country I will be visiting from the region of North America is Cancun, Mexico! Cancun is a popular vacation city on Mexico's Caribbean coast. If you like parties and beaches, this is the perfect place to go. As soon as you get to the beach there you'll be amazed by the color of the sea and sand. The night life there is crazy, everywhere you go you'll have a great time. But there is much more in Cancun and its surroundings. it's going to take about 4 hours to get to Cancun from New York so for now, I opened up my phone and began to look for hotels and attractions to visit while I am there. So far, I'll be staying at a hotel called "ME Cancun" which is a four star hotel for $481 per night. The attractions I will also be visiting are Chichen Itza, Xel-Ha Park, and Cancun Water Museum. Cancun is basically an entire beach, I definitely know that I'm going to have loads of fun here. The flight time is only 3 hours left, so I decided to take a nap until I get there. A few hours later, I wake up, open my window curtain, and see a beach! That's how I immediately knew I was here already. When the plane landed, I took all my luggage from the rack, and went to the 'Arrivals' area. Afterwards, I exit the airport and called a taxi to go to the ME Cancun hotel. When I arrived at the hotel, I dropped off all luggage and began my first day at Cancun, Mexico!

Day One (Part Two:)
After dropping my luggage off, I felt like taking a tour around my hotel. I don't normally tour around the past hotels I've been at, but since Cancun is mostly filled with beaches, I want to see what the hotel would be like. My room had a very beautiful view of the beach, the service was really great, just everything at the hotel seemed perfect. There was about 7 bars, Jacuzzi, Beauty Salon, Fitness Centre and about four restaurants. After touring the hotel for a little bit, I began to walk to Chichen Itza which was a large pre-Columbian city built by the Maya people of the Terminal Classic period. When I got there, I bought my ticket and walked around. My experience was amazing there. For me, it was really interesting to learn about Mayan history. It also had a pretty incredible Mayan structure. It felt amazing to be in the presence of the structure. I spent hours and hours at Chichen Itza. It was then time for me to go back to my hotel, so I walked back, ordered food from room service and slept right after,

Day Two:
I wake up at 10:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore the city of Cancun on my second day! I head down to the lobby first to eat breakfast. Today I will be visiting Xel-Ha Park which is an aquatic theme park. I'm planning on spending the entire day there, but it was quite far away from where my hotel was so I went to go take a taxi to get there. An hour later, I finally arrive and buy my ticket to enter. Xel-Ha Park. It was a great natural water park with a number of activities, tubing down river, snorkeling, zip lining, caves, and denotes. There are also other activities like swimming with the Dolphins. Dolphins are one of my favorite animals so I just had to swim with them! To swim with the dolphins was pretty expensive but it was definitely worth my time. Not only that, but I also went snorkeling in many great places. I think I stayed at Xel-Ha Park for about seven hours. It was just so much fun, I didn't want to leave. The weather was really hot so it just felt so nice to be swimming all day on a hot day. I called a taxi to go back to the hotel. After I came back, I ate dinner in the lounge, went back to my room, and slept after a long day.

Day Three:
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore the city of Cancun on my last day. I head down to the lobby first to eat breakfast. Today, I will be visiting the Cancun Water Museum. I haven't bought any souvenirs from Cancun yet, so before I go to the museum, I'll go shopping for a bit for my friends, family and me. When that's finished, I go back to my hotel to drop off my shopping bags. Afterwards, I take a taxi to go to near the Museum. Since it's underwater, I had to take a boat ride to the museum. When I was at the Underwater museum, I had so much fun. I took a high speed boat ride to the museum, snorkeling tour, and swim underwater. It wasn't just an average snorkeling tour, you take a high speedboat ride out of Cancun and snorkel among 400 life-size underwater sculptures! The main body of the museum is called "The Silent Evolution" and consists of 400 life-size figures molded in pH neutral clay. After several hours, It was time to head back to the ME Cancun hotel. This is my last day at Cancun, Mexico and also the last day of my travelling trip. When I got back to the hotel, I ordered room service food, packed all my clothes into my luggage, set my alarm to 7:00 a.m., and went straight to sleep.

Day Four (Departure from Cancun, Mexico back to Toronto, Ontario, Canada):
I woke up at 7:00 a.m., same time my alarm woke me up. Today is the day is the day I'm finally going back home. I brushed my teeth, got ready, got all my luggage and headed downstairs to the lounge to eat breakfast. Afterwards, I called a taxi to go to the Cancun International Airport. When I arrived, I made my way to the 'Departing to Toronto' area, and lined up where people were to enter the plane. About half an hour later, I finally boarded the plane, and set my luggage on the rack. The past several countries were really fun and exciting for me. I really hope I can visit all of them again some time. To be completely honest, I didn't want to go back home, but I had to. My luggage was getting pretty heavy anyway with all the things I've bought from every country I've been to. I just had too much memorable moments at the past several countries, I feel that I want to re-live all of them. Hopefully I can visit all of them again when I get another opportunity to.

North America

New York, United States

sunny 20 °C

Day One (Part One): The second country I will be visiting in North America, is New York! I always wanted to visit New York. I would also refer it to as 'The City That Never Sleeps', because it's always so active especially at night. Basically, the city never sleeps. I'm always in Mississauga, Ontario Canada so I rarely get to leave my own city. Now, I finally get to see what it's like living in New York! , New York, the city so great they named it twice, goes by many other names as well. Probably most interesting to the traveler is the unofficial declaration of being the "world's capital." New York is the largest city in the USA, the fourth largest city in the world, and one of the most ethnically diverse cities on earth. The city is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx and Staten Island. New York is the largest city in the state of New York and with a lively atmosphere it is a city worth visiting. The city is packed with museums, theaters, top class restaurants and shops. It only takes an hour and a half to get to New York, so for now, I open up my phone to look for hotels and attractions to go to on my three-day visit. So far, I will be staying in 'The London NYC' hotel, which is a four star hotel for $622 per night. The attractions I will also be going to is Central Park, Statue of Liberty, and Times Square. After an hour and a half, I arrive at the LaGuardia Airport and go to the 'Departures' area. I then make my way down to the exit and call a taxi to go to 'The London NYC' hotel to drop off my luggage and start my day off at the Central Park!

Day One (Part Two):
After dropping my luggage off, it's about 10:00 a.m, already in New York, I still have time to explore New York. I was a bit hungry, so I quickly ate breakfast at the lounge. I was planning on going to Central Park in the evening, so for now, I decided to relax at my hotel for a bit. While I was at my hotel, I just relaxed in the lobby for a bit and went on my phone to upload the pictures I took from the past few countries I visited on Facebook. I wanted to take as much pictures as I can so that I can look back at the fun experiences I've had visiting that country/region. From there, I decided to go in the indoor swimming pool the hotel had and go swimming for a little bit. I not only loved eating and sleeping, but I also love swimming as well, I think that's why I always have to go swimming at the pools the hotels I've been to has. After a couple of hours, I changed into different clothes, and went to go eat lunch at a close fast-food restaurant. When I was finished, I began walking to the Central Park, which was only fifteen minutes away from where I currently was. Since it was a beautiful sunny day out, it was perfect to go to the Central Park today. When I arrived, I noticed how large the park was. It was bigger than I imagined. There was so much to do and see at the park! I felt as if I could walk in the park for days. There's turtle ponds, sculptures, sports areas, castles, lakes, theaters, and many more. There are also biking, horse and cart tours there too! The Central Park was really peaceful, I felt as if I could live there. The park was perfect to visit to go for a nice stroll, jog or run with some friends. I took my time just enjoying all of the amazing sights. I spent hours and hours at the park just walking around, enjoying the sights, I completely forgot about the time, it was getting dark already! I began to head back to my hotel, went to the lounge to have some dinner then go to my room. I then changed into my PJs and went to sleep after a long day.

Day Two:
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore New York City on my second day! Today, I'll be visiting the Statue of Liberty which is the most known statue in New York. I head down to the lobby to eat breakfast. When i'm done my breakfast, I go outside for my afternoon walk. While walking, I decided to go to the Staten Island Shopping Mall, and shop for some souvenirs. I shopped for a couple of hours and then ate at the food court. Once I was finished with that, I called a taxi to make my way to the Statue of Liberty. The statue was really far, so I had to take a taxi, I think it was gonna take about an hour or two to get there. After I arrive, I bought my ticket and went straight to the statue. I bought crown access tickets so I got to see everything. I got to tour through the mini-museum. I very much enjoyed this part of my trip to NYC. The weather was beautiful, the views were beautiful, it was fabulous. The good thing about going to the Statue of Liberty was that it made me feel American even though I was Canadian. The views from the crown were beautiful especially on a nice day out. I took a bunch of pictures while I was at the statue. I was there for hours, and I had to head back to my hotel quickly. It was dark already. I then called a taxi to back to my hotel, then when I arrived, I ate breakfast, went to my room and slept.

Day Three:
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore New York City on my last day! Today i'll be visiting Times Square this time. Times Square is a major commercial intersection in New York. I'll be going there at night because I heard it looks more beautiful at night. I first head down to the lobby to eat breakfast. When I'm finished, I decided to go to Staten Island Shopping Mall to do more shopping. Today, I don't know exactly what to do until night, so I'm finding things to do to kill time. When I'm finished my shopping, I'll go out for an afternoon walk around the block. Once I'm done with my afternoon walk, I'll head back to my hotel, eat lunch, then take a nap for a bit. When I woke up, it was about 7:00 p.m, which was perfect to start walking to Times Square. By the time I get there, it'd be really dark which will make everything stand out. Times Square is only a thirty minute walk from my hotel, so I might as well begin heading there. When I got there, I was really mesmerized. I began taking a bunch of pictures, just everything looked so alive. Times Square is definitely my favorite place I visited on my trip to New York. Everything felt magical, with all the animated billboards. It's something you wouldn't see everyday. Times Square just has a fantastic atmosphere. After spending several hours at Times Square, I walked back to my hotel. It was starting to get really late, it was 11:00 p.m. After I got back to my hotel, I packed my luggage, changed into my PJs and went to sleep.

Day Four (Departure from New York City, United States, to Cancun, Mexico):
I wake up at 6:00 a.m, brush my teeth, get ready, get my luggage and head down to the lobby to have some quick breakfast. When I'm done with that, I call a taxi to go to LaGuardia Airport. After I get there, I'll go to the 'Departure' area and line up where people are lined up to enter the plane. After an hour, I finally board the plane, set my luggage on the rack and take a nap as the plane leaves New York City.

North America

Toronto, Ontario Canada

sunny 14 °C

The first city I'll be visiting in North America is Toronto, Canada. I'm not necessarily from Toronto, I'm from Ontario, Mississauga however I never been to Toronto before. This will be my first time visiting Toronto, aside from going to the airport. Even though my parents have lived in Toronto for years, they moved to Mississauga later on, which was the time I was born so I have never gone there before. Toronto is a city in southern Ontario, Canada, and is the capital of Ontario. Toronto is located on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario, and is the largest city in Canada and the fifth largest city in North America. As of the 2011 Canadian census, the city's population is 2,615,060. The Greater Toronto Area (GTA), which includes many of the cities and towns surrounding Toronto had a population of 6,059,280 at the 2011 Canadian Census. I was going to be on the plane for about 13 hours, so I open up my phone and search up hotels to stay in then attractions to go to afterwards. So far, I found a five-star hotel for $555 per night, named 'The Ritz-Carlton Hotel'. Also, the three attractions I will be definitely going to is the Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada's Wonderland and the CN Tower. After 13 more hours, the plane begins to land at the Toronto Pearson Airport. I grab all my luggage from the rack, head down to the airport, go to the 'Arrivals' area and make my way to the exit. Once I leave the Airport, I call a taxi to go to 'The Ritz-Carlton Hotel'. Also, this hotel is really close to the CN Tower and the Art Gallery of Ontario so I can just walk there instead of taking a taxi. When I arrived, I was surprised by how huge the hotel looked. It looked like a beautiful glass mansion. I checked into the hotel, went to my room, took some pictures of the hotel, view, then afterwards I changed into my PJs, and went to sleep because by then, it was really late in Toronto.

Day One:
I wake up at 10:00 a.m, brush my teeth, get ready to explore Toronto on my first day. I then head down to the lobby to eat some breakfast, and go out for a little walk before I go to the Art Gallery of Ontario. I may live in Mississauga, but I never been to Toronto unless I was going to the airport. Toronto looked really beautiful outside, and I couldn't wait to see how it looked at night too. As I'm out on the walk, I come across the Toronto Eaton Centre which is a shopping mall in Toronto. I decided to go shopping for a bit for my family, friends and me to remind me about my first experience in Toronto. I bought some clothes, souvenirs, jewelry and many more other things. As I was shopping, I stopped by the Food court to get some lunch. After I'm done eating, I'll begin walking back to my hotel to drop off my shopping bags then start to walk to the Art Gallery of Ontario, since it is only thirteen minutes away from my hotel. Once I arrive, I buy my ticket and enter the museum. I thought that the interior of the museum was really beautiful. It's a nice museum with some lovely Canadian art. The Art Gallery of Ontario is a great place to go to for anyone who appreciates modern and contemporary art. It really blew my mind how well the layout of the pieces were displayed. They also have a really lovely architecture in the atrium and has a fun wooden spiral staircase that I thought was beautiful too. There was even an art card touch-screen interface right off the lobby and a place to take pictures under the crowns in the window. The museum was really fun. It was then, beginning to get dark so I had to quickly head back to my hotel. It was about 9:00 p.m, I felt as if I spent hours at the museum! Once I came back to my hotel, I had dinner at the lobby, then made my way back to my room. When I came back to my room, I changed into my PJs and slept after a long day.

Day Two:
I wake up at 11:00 am, brush my teeth and get ready to explore Toronto on my second day. Today, I will be going to Canada's Wonderland which is an amusement park with many different rides, arcade games, and many more. I have been wanting to go to Canada's Wonderland since I was a little kid, but haven't gotten a chance to, but now I can finally visit the wonderful place! Canada's Wonderland is about one hour away from my hotel, so I definitely have to take a taxi there. I head down to the lobby to eat breakfast, then pack myself a few snacks as I'm at the amusement park. Afterwards, I call a taxi to go to Canada's Wonderland. When I arrive, I'll buy my ticket at the front, and enter the amusement park. There were many different rides I wanted to go on. Rides such as the Leviathan, The Bat, Behemoth, and more. However, the lines for the rides were really long so I had to wait about fifteen minutes to finally get on a ride. First, I felt like playing in the arcade games and winning myself a stuffed animal. When that was done, I finally lined up to go on the Leviathan. I'm quite intimidated by how steep the drop is and how far up the roller coaster is, but riding this ride has been on my bucket list for so long. I took so much pictures as I was on the ride. It was really scary and fast, but definitely fun at the same time! After I rode The Leviathan, I made my way to The Bat, Behemoth, Windseeker, Wild Beast, and then to the Mighty Canadian Buster. After spending several hours at Canada's Wonderland, It was 8:30 p.m, already, so I called a taxi to go back to my hotel. When I came back to my hotel, I headed straight to the lobby to have dinner, then went 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 Toronto on my last day. Today, this time I will be going to the CN Tower, which is one of the tallest towers in the world! I felt that the past two days went by so fast that I really didn't feel like leaving the city. I head down to the lobby to eat breakfast, and then go out for an afternoon walk. It was sunny and hot outside, so it felt relaxing going out for a walk. I was planning on going to the CN Tower, because I heard it was more beautiful at night, so I'll just go in the evening. For now, I decided to just stay in my hotel for a bit, work out at the fitness center and go swimming in the outdoor pool. It's good for you if you go outside a lot, but I feel that it's a bit more relaxing if you stay inside sometimes. It was only 4:00 p.m, I think I had about a few more hours to spend until I head to the CN Tower, so I went to the Toronto Eaton Centre, to window shop a bit. I had my lunch at the Eaton Centre while I was there. After a couple of more hours, the sun was beginning to set which meant that it's time for me to head to the CN Tower! I begin walking to the tower, which was only ten minutes away from my hotel. When I got there, I bought my ticket and entered. When I was there, I took a bunch of pictures of the view down from the Tower. It was a bit frightening because I was so high up, but you got to see nearly all of Downtown, Toronto at night, which was very beautiful! The glass floor was also really cool! The entire view of the city was just so breathtaking. Then, I decided to eat at the restaurant inside of the CN Tower, which also had a view of Toronto, and it was really fancy. I wanted to enjoy my last day at Toronto as much as I can, and all I can say is that the past few days have been really fun. When I was finished my dinner, I went back to my hotel, packed my clothes into my luggage, set my alarm to 6:00 a.m, and went to sleep.

Day Four (Departure from Toronto, Canada to New York, United States):
I wake up at 6:00 a.m, brush my teeth, get ready, get all my luggage and head down to the lobby to quickly eat breakfast. Afterwards, I call a taxi to go to the Toronto Pearson Airport. Once I get to the airport, I find the 'Departure' area and line up where other people are to enter the plane. After about twenty minutes, I finally board the plane, set my luggage on the rack, and just relax as the plane leaves Toronto and goes to New York, United States.

Asia

Tokyo, Japan

sunny 26 °C

The last country from Asia I will be visiting is Tokyo, Japan! I'm actually very excited to visit the city of Tokyo, I always watched anime as a kid and involved the city of 'Tokyo' in it, and now I will be visiting it myself. With 31 million people living in Tokyo and the surrounding towns, the Greater Tokyo Area is the largest metropolitan areas in the world. While these large number of inhabitants can be overwhelming for the traveler at first, especially if trying to take a train at rush hour, Tokyo is one of the safest large cities to live in. As I'm on the plane, I search for hotels to stay in and attractions to visit on the three days I will be staying there. So far, I found a hotel to stay in, which is the Hilton Tokyo Hotel, that is a five star hotel for only $302 per night. I also found three attractions that appealed to me most which is Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo Imperial Palace and Meiji Shrine. I closed my phone and decided to take a nap. It was a 6 hour flight to Tokyo, it wasn't really long but I was getting tired so I felt like taking a nap until the plane landed. 6 hours later, I wake up and see everyone beginning to exit the plane, I then quickly get my luggage off the rack and leave with them. I go into the Narita International Airport, go to the 'Arrivals' area and exit the airport. I call a taxi and ask to go to the Hilton Tokyo Hotel. Once I have arrived there, I check into the hotel, go into my room, change into my PJs and sleep since it was already night time in Tokyo, Japan.

Day One:
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore the city of Tokyo on my first day. Today, I will be visiting the Meiji Shrine which is a Japanese shrine in a forest that is dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shoken. I head down to the lounge to eat breakfast, then go swimming a bit in the indoor pool that's in the hotel. When I'm done swimming, I'll go back to my room and change into different clothes then go outside to eat lunch at Shanghai Tokyo Cafe. I ordered myself a pack of sushi, ate and then called a taxi to go to the Meiji Shrine. When I arrived, I noticed how cultural the atmosphere seemed. I just simply enjoyed the nature surrounding the shrine. The shrine seemed really peaceful it truly was an incredibly nice place to visit! I heard that during weekends, traditional weddings are held at the Meiji Shrine. The atmosphere at the shrine was very cultural, pure, and very peaceful at the same time. When I entered the Meiji Shrine, It's like I completely forgot I where I was. It's like you entered a different side of Tokyo. After several hours, I called a taxi and went back to my hotel to eat dinner in the lounge. Once I was finished eating, I headed back to my room, changed into my PJs and went to sleep.

Day Two:
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get myself ready to explore the city of Tokyo on my second day, This time, I will be visiting Tokyo Imperial Palace which is the main residence of the Emperor of Japan. It is a large park-like area located in the Chiyoda ward of Tokyo and contains several buildings. I go down to the lobby to eat breakfast in the lounge, and when I'm finished eating, I decide to go shopping. Since I really love the city of Tokyo, I'm planning on buying lots of souvenirs to remind me of my amazing experience in Japan. Once I'm done shopping, I stop by a fast food restaurant to have some lunch, then head back to my hotel to drop off the bags. From there, I begin to walk to the Tokyo Imperial Palace which is twenty minutes away from my hotel. When I got there, I was mesmerized by how beautiful the palace was. Just like the Meiji Shrine, the Tokyo Imperial Palace had a very pure and peaceful atmosphere. The Tokyo Imperial Palace was where samurai warriors used to live in from the 17 and 19th centuries. It was then getting dark so I called a taxi to bring me back to my hotel. After I arrived, I ate dinner at the lounge then headed back to my room, changed to my PJs and went to sleep.

Day Three:
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get myself ready to explore the city of Tokyo on my last day. Today, I will be visiting Tokyo Disneyland which is a theme park. I head down to the lobby to eat breakfast, then take a morning walk before I go to to Tokyo Disneyland. When I'm done my morning walk, I go back to my hotel, call a taxi to go to Tokyo Disneyland. The theme park is about an hour away from my hotel, so it took about an hour and a half to get there because of all the traffic. I finally arrive, buy my ticket and enter the theme park. When I entered the theme park, it didn't take me long to realize that Tokyo Disneyland isn't any different from the Disneyland in other countries. Disneyland really is the happiest place on earth. It's an amazing and fun place to visit, I just enjoyed every moment. There are even lots of great rides and shows. I was quite intimidated by a few roller coasters because I haven't been to an amusement park in so long, but overall that, I had lots of fun. I spent hours and hours at Tokyo Disneyland, not only because it was fun, but waiting in line to ride a roller coaster took about almost half an hour! Other than that, everything else in Tokyo Disneyland was really entertaining. Suddenly, I realized it was dark already, everyone was beginning to exit Tokyo Disneyland. I called a taxi and went back to the hotel to eat dinner. After I was finished eating, I headed back to my room to pack my clothes into my luggage. I then changed into my PJs, set my alarn to 7:00 a.m, and went to sleep.

Half an hour later, I finally board the plane and set my luggage on the rack. I can already tell it's going to be a long flight to (North America) Toronto, Canada. I take a nap as the plane leaves Tokyo, Japan and goes to Toronto.

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.
