Recently I have had the chance to visit Bangkok, capital of Thailand. This was my first trip outside India, hence I was excited. A few months back in Nov 2019, I joined ONE Championship and this trip was to attend a company event - A New Tomorrow in Bangkok.
When it's too cold in north India, at the same time Bangkok temperature was 30-degree Celsius. It was too hot in the city, the weather was like April, May month of India. I had heard a lot about the street-food of Bangkok, but because of the smell, I was missing Indian food. I ate mostly at K.F.C. and Burger King. If you are open to eating any nonvegetarian food then you might enjoy local foods, but this was not my cup of tea.
I went to attend this event with a few of my colleagues, and we stayed in the Ibis Hotel which was very near to the event location. But it was very far from the main city. It was amazing to experience a live event. We got the chance to chat with the players, few of them were Indian athlete. We had very little time, but in this short time apart from watching ONE Championship event we also wanted to do shopping, travel popular places nearby and eat local foods. Electronic devices are cheaper in Bangkok, that was the reason to visit Iconsiam Shopping Mall. This mall was bigger than the malls I have visited till now. In Bangkok, there was just one grand Apple store in this mall. After visiting this mall, we left for Jomtien beach in Pattaya city. Jomtien Beach was 166 KM far from the hotel we stayed in. Bangkok has the worst traffic condition but luckily we didn't experience that and reached Jomtien beach in just 3 hours.
After looking out too much, we found an Indian restaurant. The owner of the restaurant was from Delhi. I enjoyed Indian food after so long, but generally, here people add too much salt in dishes. After lunch, we had to leave for Bangalore after a beach bath. On this trip I took many photos, this photostream contains selected stills from this trip.
