We had a solid tour program on the 2nd day.
3) Lunch at Royal Dragon Restaurant, Bangkok - Voted as the world's largest restaurant by the Guiness Book of Records in 1992 (opened in Oct 1991 with seating capacity of 5,000; staff of 1,200 and occupied 8.35 acres). Tom Yam soup, deep fried fish, roasted chicken, stir-fried Kailan, mixed vegetables, taufoo - a 9 course wholesome set lunch to whet our appetite ! The worms in our stomach had a jolly good time !
4) Spriracha Tiger Zoo & Crocodile Farm, Bangkok - Exciting, thrilling and very entertaining - not a dull moment ! Live tiger performance, pig racing, crocodile shows etc. Do you dare to place your head into the crocodile's mouth ? Good luck for those who dare.
5) Dinner time - As featured in Golden Deluxe travel agency's flyer, our tour group had a "grand" dinner served with king lobster salad, shark fin & bird nest soup for this evening - I wondered how much this dinner meal costs ? I did not bother to ask the tour guide, I just eat and enjoy the food ! For sure, this dinner meal could not be served in Malaysia for a 5 day RM800 tour package covering KL & Langkawi (to include 3-4 star hotels and all ground transport) ! Thailand boleh-lah !!
6) Alcazar show, Pattaya - we paid 600Bht to see this show (own expense). Highly recommended. Transvestites dressed in colorful national costume of various countries eg Thai, Malaysia, China, Korea, India, Vietnam etc put up their best cultural performances in front of a packed crowd, mainly overseas tourists.
" Oh, I loved Pattaya ! Lonely Planet described Pattaya as a lucrative cocktail of sun, sand & sex. Where have all the American GI's gone ? Gone with the wind ! No worry, we still have the overseas tourists, Malaysians in particular, to support, wine and dine with you !
