Review of Thailand trip after more than two years apart
I hunted for cheap flight tickets on airasia. Na's ticket price is more than 3 million for all 4 routes (Saigon - Bangkok - Chiang Mai - Bangkok - Saigon). If you only like to go to Bangkok, a round-trip ticket Saigon - Bangkok costs only 1 million. You can get around Thailand by Metro or tuk-tuk. Na's group often booked grab because it's not only convenient but also cheap.
Thailand's weather is similar to Saigon, sometimes hotter. So I chose to go to outdoor activities in the early morning and late afternoon to avoid the heat, and at noon, the mall was definitely my shelter. Attire: You can wear anything but when you go to the temple, wear pants or a knee-length skirt! Na often brought a shawl to easily wrap when needed or against rain and sun. It is very convenient. What to eat: Eat everything =)) because everything is delicious. The dishes that we always order are Somtam salad, PadThai, Tomyam, Grilled pork with sticky rice, chicken satay, pineapple fried rice, grilled chicken, mango sticky rice, etc. If going to Chiangmai, you must try Khao Soi!
Basic cost for Na's 5 days 5 nights trip:
- Air ticket: VND 3 million
- Hotel: VND 3 million
- Eat full stomach: VND 4 million/person
Schedule of Na for 3 nights in Bangkok and 2 nights in Chiangmai.
Wat Paknam, the temple with the largest Buddha statue in Bangkok 69m high, is a work of special spiritual value in Thailand. Completed in 2020, it's still unpopular on travel forums. From now on, when coming to Bangkok, don't miss Wat Paknam!
Wat Tha Phra Chinatown (in addition to walking along the night market with a variety of dishes, the hottest restaurant here is probably T&K seafood restaurant) T-one Sky bar Mahanakhon Skywalk is a place where you can admire the sunset and night in Bangkok. There is also a bar on this tallest building in Thailand, so you can enjoy the night view of Bangkok while chilling out and drinking! The shopping and dining centers in Bangkok are always busy. There are many delicious foods, but just eating in the food court is also amazing =)) don't forget to drink orange juice (there are tangerines instead of oranges) very delicious. Some malls Na went to this time: - Siam Paragon - CentralwOrld - The Emquartier
CHIANGMAI I stayed at the Flora Creek hotel in Chiangmai. It is located far from the city, deep in the forest, so the air is very fresh. Its swimming pool and flowers are also very beautiful. Just a bit far =)) The weekend night market in Chiangmai is crowded and bustling. Street food at the night market is also top-notch. Our group has 4 people and eat 10 dishes. While going to the night market, you can visit Wat Phan Thao Pluto Coffee shop is a newly opened cafe in Chiangmai, which is very hot currently. From Chiangmai Na to Chiangrai (travel between 2 places takes 6 hours in total, so Na takes advantage of the time to get up and leave at 5 am). Chiangrai is famous for 3 temples built and decorated ornately and splendidly. - White temple - Blue Temple - Baan Dam - Black House
Na's trip is just simple like that! There are many other places to visit and many other dishes to try but I don't have enough time. Hope to return to Thailand one day soon. If you are preparing to go to Thailand, wish you have a good trip! Source: Collect #$gnal$#

      The cuisine was as delicious as ever, with all the usual suspects like chicken satay, pineapple fried rice, grilled chicken, and the ever-so-yummy mango sticky rice.

        The weather in Thailand was pretty much the same as Saigon, except for moments when it felt even hotter
