Hey all! @dom.singh
doing a final #DomoBTCtakeover
check in😬. I’m currently back in New York, still processing the amazing trip I had from China to Thailand (Phuket, Chiang Mai, and Bangkok) and wanted to share some more highlights that I didn’t get a chance to while on the go:
1. Saw the beautiful temples: Phuket Big Buddha, Wat Rong Khun (White Temple) and Wat Rong Seur Ten (Blue Temple). 2. Visited the Long Neck Karen Hilltop Tribe who are known for boasting spiral brass coils around their neck.
3. Visited Manakhon Skywalk - the tallest building in Bangkok and second tallest building in Thailand.
4. Shopped around Chatuchak market in Bangkok - the largest market in Thailand.
5. Hung out on Khao San Road in Bangkok - a strip full of bars, street food, restaurants, with influences of hip hop everywhere!
6. Jammed out to the songs of Courage Band at Roots Rock Reggae - a reggae bar in Chiang Mai.
7. Explored Thai culture by riding through Bangkok in a tuk tuk, drinking 882729 Thai iced teas, eating allllll the foods, and getting multiple Thai massages for under $10 USD.
This trip gave me a ton of “firsts” to add to my experience list. First long haul (over 10 hour) flight really wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be! I slept the entire way there.. it was the flight back that seemed never ending. Especially because I knew I was coming back to this cold NY weather. First time eating authentic Thai food, was truly everything.. although it’s one of my favorites, I’m going to have a tough time enjoying Thai food in NYC as much as I used to. The seasonings, the herbs, the spices were so reminiscent of the home cooked meals I grew up on. This trip wasn’t the first time I had to deal with language barriers but living in NYC, it definitely made me feel what so many tourists feels when they come to visit and have no idea how to communicate or navigate. Not always the easiest, but it’s a learning experience and all apart of experiencing other cultures. Thanks for following the journey! ❤️
