Before anything, ako at ang mga kasama ko nagpunta ng Thailand would like to thank Mr. Ramon Herrera for the free tour and accommodation in Pattaya. After a week in Thailand, let me share the fun trip I had there from arrival to departure =)
MANILA ( NAIA Terminal 3 ) to
BANGKOK ( Suvarnabhumi International Airport )
Departure: Thursday, Dec 2, 2010 , 2135H
Arrival: Thursday, Dec 2, 2010 , 2350H
Flight No.: 5J 931
Suvarnabhumi International Airport
The airport was really big and bright, ang daming displays, ads and shops na nakapalibot. Sa loob pa lang malaki na halos nakakaligaw you reaaly have to look at the signs para alam mo kung san ka pupunta. We were about to go to fall in line on the immigration when the aiport staff told us to go to the other immigration booth instead which is on the other side pa, ganun kalaki yung airport. Sa loob pa lang malaki na, sa labas din if you look at the whole airport from outside parang isang buong macapal road sa atin including MOA hehe. Even the parking lot was full of cars, ganun siguro kadami nag travel sa Thailand lagi. This is the biggest airport I have ever seen so far hehe.
Travel to Pattaya
Pattaya is almost 2 hour drive from Â Bangkok airport. Â It’s a famous place in Thailand na dinadayo talaga ng mga foreigners because of the beach and other tourist spots there. Before we go to Thailand may naka-arrange na cab na susundo samin from airport to Pattaya it costs us 1,000 Thailand Baht or P1,450 sa atin, apat naman kami kaya ok na din kase malayo talaga. Ang luwag ng kalsada and since madaling araw kami nag travel walang traffic.Â On our way to Pattaya, nag stop over muna kami sa place they call “Pitt Stop”. The place is like the gasoline stations sa highway natin, madaming reastaurants and 1 gasoline station. One thing na napansin ko daming 711, parang mga 3-5 stores gap lang ang pagitan ng 711 haha. We went to 711 to buy sana ng uber Biggie na Ovaltine but it was not available that time sa 711 na napuntahan namin so nagtake out nalang kami sa McDonalds.
Arrival at Mr. Ramon Herrera’s House
We arrived at Pattaya around 3 in the morning na, malaki yung bahay at malinis, 3 bedrooms, 2 toilet and bath and may garrage pa. Sinalubong kami ng dad ni Sheril Herrera saka ng adorable dog nya named “Panda”. Panda kase black and white yung color nya and dami balahibo ang cute cute makes me want to have one talaga. Pag dating namin nagutom kami kaya pagkain agad ang hinanap namin haha. At home na at home kami kaya yung mga cup noodles ang kinain namin pag dating namin. Maanghang yung mga cup noodles grabe di nga nakayanan ng ibang kasama ko yung anghang kaya napilitan sila bumili ng hindi maanghang na noodles sa 711. After we ate our midnight snacks we went to sleep na sobrang excited sa pasyalan kinabukasan.
