Spoil your eyes as it sees the beauty of Thailand: from its ornate architecture to elegant gold-gilded temples.
Savor the mostly-spicy cuisine like Pad Thai (fried rice with tofu, bean sprouts, onion and dust-like peanut ground) and Tom Yum Goong (shrimp soup with Thai herbs - lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, cilantro, galangal and shallots with chili and fish sauce) but never skip the sweet sticky rice with mango dessert.
Converse with the locals (and this is the hard part because only a few speaks English) and discover how their soft voices become music to your ears.
For once, embrace their intact, opulent culture. :) Kap kun ka bhez Heaven Claire Asor for carefully planning my first international trip. :* ♥
