Remembering Thailand

Two years ago, I had an amazing experience traveling to Thailand. I had a great time exploring the capital city, Bangkok. The first thing that really caught my attention were the monks wearing orange robes and just walking every where in the street. What amazed me more was that some of them had mobile phones and MP3s. Cool huh!

Secondly, it was Monday when I saw the majority of the Thai people wearing yellow shirts. They were all over the place. Then I learned that they wear yellow shirts in honor of the country’s beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej on the 60th anniversary of his ascension to the throne. Yellow is the king’s birth color, traditionally corresponding to the day he was born, a Monday.

I also was able to visit other places outside Bangkok. I went to Ratchaburi to see the famous floating markets. They are among the most-photographed destinations in the country.

The floating markets are where the sellers, their boats laden with a wide variety of tropical fruits, flowers, vegetables and fresh produce, come to meet and barter their products with other traders.

I spent my last day in Ayutthaya where the ruins of the once great city remain.

This trip was two years ago, but I can still remember every bit of it.

I will definitely come back to this country again.
