Sawatdii khrap in other words, Hello


Today is the first day... From Tbilisi to Kiev... from Kiev to Bangkok... I landed at 6 o’clock in the morning and before the plane landed the pilot informed us that there were 27 degrees in Bangkok ...

From the Airport I went straight to the Damnoen Saduak  floating market, which is about 100 kilometers from Bangkok.

There is a huge turmoil from 10 to 12 in the morning.  A needle can’t even be dropped in the tourist area :) Though there are more Thai tourists than foreigners


I could find only two hotels on this territory. I settled down in one of them and there is only me in the entire hotel and the employees who keep telling me “No English” with great joy :) It’s very difficult when you have to communicate  only by using body language and not only  at  the hotel...

Perhaps a question can hit your mind here: If there are so many tourists, why aren’t there any hotels? The answer is simple - Because nobody stays here... They just go boating, eat the food prepared on the boats and then their time is over. Then they have to pass ahead to visit at least two or three tourist attractions and go back to Bangkok. I’m so grateful that they have even this hotel :))))


Two more surprises are waiting for me :) One is that there was no telephone to call to Georgia and I found the Internet only after searching for about an hour... I was used to the notices “Hotel”, “Internet”, “Phone” on every step in India... Here you should set your mind on the Thai wave... :)




Mercedes can complain to the Thai cook for illegal use of the design :))))



It doesn’t matter if there are not some things.... What is important is that they have a Terminator and you can take photos with him just for about 1.50 laries and you’ll be happy :)))) P.S. and the Terminator will be happy as well :))))


Tomorrow I’m going to see those places where they don’t expect the tourists and I’ll see the natural life of Thailand... Life is wonderful....



Thailand – Smile Country

The day started with a lot of smiles today ....Consequently, such kind of beginning has positive effect on everything :)))


I recommend to visit Thailand to those who are on a fruit diet :)

Note that a kilo of banana is about 50 tetris !!!


Before spotting the places I had to take care of food.  After trying to explain me for a very long time what kind of bird meat the cook was offering me,  all his tryings were in vain ... However, it was very delicious :))
