Thailand 2010 (Bangkok & Pattaya)

" A clear sense of purpose in LIFE gives birth to courage & wisdom "

" Retirees can choose a LIFE of monotony or one of personal growth " 

" Without risk taking, we would find ourselves safe & secure, but lacking in personal lustre, spark or a sense of accomplishment " 

" My 5 days package tour with my wife to Thailand (Bangkok & Pattaya from 11-15/11/2010) - A short & fun filled vacation in a Land of Smiles. No UNESCO sites, No free & easy travel - a lot of No No (no straying, no extra sleep in the mornings) but a stress-free package tour; so just sit,relax and enjoy the sight seeings & the yummy Thai food ! Let the blooming orchid flowers brighten up your days in Bangkok & Pattaya "

2010 is indeed a year of travelling for me, having visited Europe (40 days), Japan (14 days) & China (30 days). My wife and myself had an enjoyable time in Japan during the Sakura season (April 2010). What a hectic year for me as a traveller as I was away from home and out of Malaysia for three months in 2010 !

Before saying bye bye to 2010, both of us were looking for a short vacation in a nearby country and guessed what, Bali was on our top priority list. But we changed our mind later after seeing a local Chinese newspaper ad offering a 5 day 4 night tour package to Bangkok & Pattaya for RM798 organised by Golden Deluxe Travel Service Agency Sdn Bhd, Kuala Lumpur ! A real bargain as the price includes a return air ticket (Lufthansa German Airline), all meals, 3-4 star hotel accommondation, & all ground transport arrangement accompanied by a local tour guide.

Our group tour (departing 11/11/2010) had 50 people signed up but was splinted up into 2 group. We were placed onto a small group of 15. This tour package is ideal for families with children, young, elderly people and first timers. We were the last two persons to fill up the vacant seats in this group. Lucky me & my wife !

Plenty of fun awaits us as soon as we land in this country popularly known as a "Land of Smiles" : white & sandy beaches, water sports, animal & cultural shows, Alcazar (transvestite) show, Safari, floating market, shopping and more shopping in MBK - you will see and experience all these when in Bangkok & Pattaya !!!
