Descrizione

This is travelling Essay. Never has there been a country more fascinating and beguiling as Thailand. Are you familiar with its diverse people, varied landscapes, and rich history? I have already been to Thailand’s international airport more than four times. I visited the country for the first time as a student backpacker and had some stopovers there en route to other countries.
The 1956 film The King and I is based on the true story of a governess that taught the King’s children in the late nineteenth century. This film became so popular that people started to put Thailand down on their list of places they wanted to visit.
Called “the country of smiles”, it has transformed into a great tourist destination. The country abounds in historic sites and charming resorts. It is a convenient place to visit with plenty of reasonably-priced accommodations and restaurants. The locals say, “Everything in Thailand is for the King and of the King.” The monarchy and Buddhism are the pillars of the land.
One thing I noticed when making inquiries about bus transportation at the airport, was that the office clerk I talked to was frowning and looked exhausted. It was no surprise that the airport staff were tired of having to deal with crowds of foreign tourists coming and going.
Most tourists must pay a fee to stay one month. At the time of my visit, a lot of people from all around the world including South Koreans like me were allowed stay in Thailand for 60 days free of charge.
Thailand is a major tourist destination, and it is a country that foreigners first think of as one of their favorite countries to visit among the Asian countries.

Day 1

It was a gorgeous day when my mother and I started our journey from Incheon International Airport. After about five-and-a-half hours of flying, we finally got a bird’s-eye view of Bangkok. Through our plane’s window, we could see even from up high that Bangkok was a beehive of activity.

The sunshine turned to rain when we landed at Suvarnabhumi Airport, a major international airport in Thailand.

After clearing Customs and Immigration, we tried to find the fastest way to get to Chiang Mai, a city located in northern Thailand. At first, we thought about taking a bus; however, we could not get the bus information we needed. Instead, the people who worked at the information center recommended we take a domestic flight.  We went to different desks and bought airline tickets through one company.

Although the exchange rate is usually the worst at the airport, we did not have any other options but to use their services to change our money into Thai Baht to buy the plane tickets. The usual exchange rate for 1000 Korean Won is about 30 Baht which is the equivalent of about 1 USD.

We had to stay in the airport to catch our early flight to Chiang Mai. Since we landed at the Suvarnabhumi Airport at 2 am, it was pointless to go out, find a hotel, then come back at 5:30 am to check in for the flight.

We sat on the empty chairs at the airport and waited
