I am back one more time to write about my favorite experiences from the third and final country I explored during my study abroad experience: Thailand! I have already posted about my time in Vietnam and Cambodia, as I was lucky enough to travel to three countries on a fantastic Southeast Asia adventure. In Thailand, I was introduced to the exciting and beautiful capital city of Bangkok. I felt that this city was extremely interesting for the way that it blended both past influences and modern lifestyles. Plus, the food was absolutely phenomenal (especially for my fellow vegetarians out there)! I will never forget the Pad Thai and Thai milk tea that I had in a little cafe on the canal on my first day in Thailand. Apart from that, one of my favorite experiences was our tour of the Grand Palace. Gilded in gold, adorned in gemstones, and meticulously manicured, the palace complex truly took my breath away. The architecture is something that has stuck with me across all three of the countries we visited, and Thailand certainly did not disappoint in that regard. We also took a trip to the ancient city of Ayutthaya, which served as the capital city of the Siamese Kingdom from the 14th to 18th centuries. Today, its historic monuments and archeological ruins remain as testaments to this once-flourishing city. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, there is something so special about walking among ancient history and seeing things that have stood the test of time. It was truly magical. Thailand absolutely captured my heart during the few short days I was able to spend there, and there is no doubt in my mind that I will be back someday.
