Pattaya Floating Market - Touristy Attraction For Time-Strapped Tourist

It’s ironic that I have never visited a Thai floating market even though I have been to Bangkok quite a few times. My travel companions were only interested in shopping.  I made it a point to visit at least one floating market on this…

Chiang Rai Day Tour - Hot Spring, White Temple, Blue Temple and Black House Museum

Chiang Mai Zoo - Animal Feeding, Pandas Snow Dome and More
