Thailand: Paradise On Earth

Thailand: Paradise In The Far East

Jeweled Buildings at the Grand Palace

After a cold winter tour in Japan and South Korea it was time to soak up some sun and endless massages in Thailand, my other home away from home. It’s hard not to stop by Thailand when visiting any part of Asia, this would mark my 4th time in the lovely country. Thailand is the ultimate paradise in Asia. I spent some crazy time in the city of Bangkok and headed to the beach resort with family friends to the unspoilt town of Hua Hin and the nearby Floating Market where I had my lunch of fried banana and sticky rice on one of the boats with the locals.

The delicatessen in Thailand is not to be missed. Yes, I love food!

Featured here are some of the images I took of my daily meals of fresh fish right out of the ocean accompanied by some organic vegetables. Since turning vegetarian during my visit to Panama last year, I stayed clear of any meat. My source of protein for now, fish and tofu. I guess that makes me a pescatarian of some sort. The best place to eat in Thailand are not fancy lavishly decorated digs but local outdoor make shift restaurants and hole in the walls. They are mind blowing!

The visit finished on a high note, boarding Thai Airways where I got pampered the second I set my foot at the airport. Got whisked to the Royal First class check in lounge where I was served a fruity-herbal welcome drink. I was soon presented my boarding pass and sped through passport control to their airport lounge spa for a pre-flight traditional Thai massage then served pre-flight meal in the Royal First lounge. On the flight, in the intimate limited seating of the first class cabin, we was presented with a Rimowa travel kit box (featured below, the best ever on any airline), Dom Perignon champagne as an onboard refreshment and generous, unlimited servings of caviar! And to think I booked myself on this flight using my frequent flyer miles? WOW! Thai airways first class exceeded my expectation. I highly recommend it!

    • Victor, Thailand like Cambodia? No way. I was in Cambodia 2 years ago. Both countries are nothing alike. You have to visit Thailand to see the difference yourself. Thailand is paradise, absolute paradise 😉 -Tinu
