Traveling to Thailand is an exciting adventure for the single guy going there the first time. It’s an experience you will never forget, especially if you come from the west. I remember my first time going to Thailand from the States, it was overwhelming but exciting too.
After the long journey all the way to Japan then finally Bangkok, when i stepped off the plane and into the airport I already felt a strange but welcoming vibe.
When I waited for my taxi I already wondered what my 2nd encounter with a Thai would be like. I don’t really count the first because it was an immigration officer and he didn’t say a word. So my taxi pulls up and he was very pleasant with big smile. He didn’t speak too much English but fully understood where I wanted to go. Of course it helped that I had the name and location of the Hotel with me on a piece of paper I printed.
The drive to the hotel from the airport to the hotel too about 45 minutes and mostly due to a lot of traffic. Bangkok is terrible for traffic but i got a taste of it that is for sure.
Checking into my hotel was a breeze. After I checked in I took a shower and got my second wind and decided to head out. I walked down the street and came across “Nana Plaza.” This place looked insane. I walked through it and felt I was in heaven. It was full of bar girls, gogo’s and hey, even ladyboys. I have to admit the ladyboys looked hot and I was tempted to “try one out.” That might be a later story.
So I hope you liked this early introduction, much more is to come.
