“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
If I could take my family/friends to any place on the planet, I’d choose:
To take them to Thailand!
You might wonder- Why Thailand? I could have picked any other place on the planet!
3 Reasons as simple as A-B-C:
A) Me-Too Wish-Fulfillment!- Ever since I won my one and only solo-trip to Bangkok, Thailand, in a Quiz three years ago, my friends & in-Laws (especially my Mother-In-Law) wish to visit Thailand! This is my opportunity to earn brownie-points!!!
B) Location- Proximity of Thailand to the Eastern part of India where we reside means –
Lesser Travel-Time & Lower Travel-Costs with more affordable air-fares and smart package-tours.
C) Experience Counts- I have always fancied myself as a Tour-Guide! As I have already visited Bangkok, I feel I can plan better and make our Trip a happy and a memorable one for all!

Motto: Enhancing my Group’s Happiness Quotient (GHQ) in Bangkok & Pattaya:
Well Planned & Organized, Safe & Secure Tour- Return Economy Class Airfare, Return-Airport-Transfers, Decent Accommodation, Buffet Breakfast, City-Tour, Return Transfers between Bangkok & Pattaya etc… can make my Group feel tension-free, comfortable and happy.
People- Thai people are very friendly and make travellers feel at home and welcome! We’ll be happy to see smiling faces the moment we arrive at the Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport!
Sights & Attractions- Bangkok’s exciting landmarks like- The Royal Palace, The Temple of The Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho), The Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit) (that has a 5.5 ton statue of the Buddha made from solid gold), The Marble Temple (Wat Benchamabopit) etc… promise a rewarding treat for the religious as well as the photography enthusiasts in my Group! The Chao Phraya River-Cruise will give us a great view of many attractions.
Leisure- Bangkok’s Safari World with Marine Park boasts of the Safari park, Bird Park, Games Corner and Macaw Island. My entire Group, especially the children of all ages, should be super-thrilled to interact with orangutans, dolphins and many other exotic birds and animals!
Adventure- I can imagine the excitement when my Group goes on a tour of Pattaya’s Coral Island by a speed boat and gets to explore the coral reefs from a glass-bottomed boat! There is a choice of activities like- Swimming, Wind-Surfing, Scuba-diving, Snorkeling, Parasailing…or simply Sunbathing!
Natural Beauty & Nightlife- Pattaya’s sandy beaches and nightlife should calm everyone’s stressed minds and help them unwind! Attending the Alcazar show, a cabaret with bright costumes, acting and stage-design, should enhance my GHQ!
Shopping- Thailand is a Shopper’s paradise, offering affordable roadside-vendors & shopping-malls & sophisticated plazas too. As my In-Laws love Shopping, they can indulge in bargain-buys from a variety of Souvenirs, Handicrafts, Textiles, Ready Made-Clothes & Luxury items like Gems from the Gems Gallery.
Food- A variety of world-cuisines- Vegetarian as well as Non-Vegetarian dishes will cater to everyone’s food cravings. The youngsters will be pleased as they love Chinese and Thai dishes. Indian dishes are served and many Indian Restaurants are there too to keep my Mother-In-Law happy!
I will be creating happy travellers!
My GHQ- Group's Happiness Quotient is sure to increase!
And I really don’t need to be a Tour-Guide!
Approximate Thailand Trip Cost: Rs 25,000 * 20 = Rs 5 Lakhs
Trip’s Happy Memories: Priceless!
