Exploring Thailand On My Own Way

Every time I visit Thailand, I fall in love with this country instantly – popularly known as the Land of Smiles.

In my past visits to Thailand, I tried my best to capture the amazing beauty of this country. Be it streets or glorious coastline, Thailand has something for everyone.

How many times have you been to Thailand ?

Beaches and amazing street foods are some of the key reasons why I keep coming back to this country.

What are your reasons to visit Thailand ? Do let me know.

Magnificent Beauty Of Ko Samet

Being a thalassophile, I make sure my every international trip includes the ocean, rivers and lakes. My love for water bodies took me to Koh Samet near Bangkok. Its tranquility, turquoise water and sandy beaches make it a perfect holiday destination. If you are in Bangkok and want to explore a nearby beach destination, then do not forget to visit Koh Samet, a three-hour journey from Bangkok. Sharing some images of my short getaway to this beautiful island.

Penang’s Famous Street Art – Part 2

I hope you enjoyed the first part of Penang. Now comes to the second part. This set of images of George Town is bound to fuel your wanderlust. Probably vibrant street art was one of the key reasons why I paid a trip to the Malaysian state . With the help of a map I explored most of the famous graffiti/murals of George Town without much problem. Although I had to skip some street art due to lack of time. Every 20 minutes, I used to take a small beer break due to hot and humid weather. It was a short and sweet trip to Penang. I just wish I could have stayed a little longer there.

Dataran Lang (Eagle Square) – A Photo Essay

A trip to Langkawi is incomplete without a visit to hugely popular Dataran Lang (also known as Eagle Square), a man-made structure.

Situated at the southeast corner of Pulau Langkawi, the 12 meter-tall statue is bound to take your breath away. The massive eagle sculpture greets everyone who comes to Kuah by ferry. The eagle is the emblem of Langkawi Island. Try to visit the place in the morning or evening as the afternoon sun could make you feel highly uncomfortable. As I was staying in a remote place of Langkawai, I hired a taxi to reach the place.

A Quick Getaway To Fort Kochi

Fort Kochi is known for its enchanting beauty. I completely fell in love with the place during my short trip in September. You can either hire a bicycle or motorbike to explore the place but I covered most of the tourists spots by walking as the weather was pleasant. Due to off season the places were not swarmed with tourists and their large selfie-sticks, which helped me enjoy the place without any deviations.
In Fort Kochi, I stayed in Crystal Maze Homestay which I highly recommend to include in your itinerary. But for those who are planning to pick some local artifacts I suggest not to visit in September as most of the shops were closed due to off season.

Fort Kochi – An Explosion Of Color

My trip to Fort Kochi was short and quick, but enough to completely blew my mind with beautiful surroundings, cute cafes, colorful buildings and vibrant street arts. It was Onam and most of the shops were closed. Yet, I had my share of fun. Every nook and corner you will spot quirky colorful paintings. The following images might give you an idea how vibrant the place is.

How I Crossed Myanmar Via India Border

Although I crossed the international boundaries but I was bounded by the limitation of time. As I had a few days of my leisure time on my hands, I decided to explore Myanmar’s Mandalay. Following my extensive research on Internet, I came to know that one can easily venture into Myanmar via Moreh-Tamu border.

So I booked a flight from Delhi to Imphal via Gauhati. Upon landing I drove into Moreh parking zone, where one can find a number of taxis. It was 1.30pm and I was in hurry to reach the Indo-Myanmar border as it shuts around 6PM. After talking to few people, I agreed to pay Rs1,500 to a taxi guy, who promised me to take to Moreh border. Despite my protest, the guy picked up two more people. Never mind. Things happen. The journey was not smooth. A lot of renovation work was going on the main highway. Besides, the Army was checking every vehicle which were heading towards Moreh. So be prepared to show your ID whenever they ask. No argument, nothing. Just show you ID. After four-hour of journey, the taxi guy dropped me at Gate number 2 of Moreh. However, the security guard told me to immediately go to Gate number 1. So I quickly hired an auto and asked the driver to drop me at Gate number 1. From Gate number 2 to Gate number 1 it was approximately a distance of 1km. I asked the auto guy to wait for me at the Gate number 1. A security guy noted down my passport number and visa number. Then he told me to visit the immigration department quickly. The auto guy knew the route and dropped me at the immigration department. From Gate number 1 to the immigration department it was 1km journey. So if you want to walk, you can. But I was tired. So I requested the auto guy to take me to the immigration department. Within 10 minutes, everything is done. Voila !

Then I crossed a bridge and reached the border of Myanmar. Upon reaching I filled a form at the immigration department of Myanmar. And after few minutes I got stamp on my passport. It was 5.30pm. One guy approached me to take me to Tamu town for Rs100. I agreed to his request. It was approximately 3km journey. To be continued…

Kulcha

dav

Spotted these Kulchas (a kind of bun) in a Leh market. I bought two kulchas – one for me and one for my driver, just for Rs 5. Grab a cup of tea while eating these kulchas. Highly recommended.

Have you tried them ?
