Oftentimes than not, theme parks don’t appeal to me as it becomes too crowded and every ride or attraction has never-ending line just to get inside. “No pain, no gain” as they say. But thanks to my sister, we had a family trip in USJ that’s not too tiring and worth to recommend.
I always sought to be personally and wholly involved in planning my travels. I have specific wants where to go and what to experience. Also, I tried to have allowances in between schedules ‘coz where’s the adventure if you try to plan everything, right? I wanted it to be organized yet still flexible for whatever might be better and let the fun flow naturally. So for this blog post, I’ll share to you my D-I-Y itinerary, transportation guides, accommodation(s) and some tips how to have a smooth escape in The Land of Smiles — The Kingdom of Thailand.
It seemed that tourists in Thailand are itching to ride elephants in Howdah (the seat that the human sits in atop the elephant). It’s a bucket list item but there’s a DARK side you don’t see. The process of taming the ellies for this kind of activity includes TORTURE and BREAKING THEIR SPIRIT. Choose elephant sanctuary that can let you enjoy without harming them. Please raise awareness.
Travel not just to experience but to INSPIRE. Spread love; elephants are God’s creations, too. ❤️

From May to early June, Shibazakura Festival (Moss Pink Festival) is held when this flora is in full bloom.
