Thailand in Photos (Part 3)

I’m back again with more photos from our Thailand trip! If you missed the previous photos, you can find part 1 here, and part 2 here. Again, this is another photo heavy post. So let’s begin!

Day 5 – The 5th day of our trip involved us hiring a tuk tuk to head up to the Big Buddha and to look around one of the temples. We had blessings from a Monk, and brought a tile with out names to go into the construction of the Buddha. If it wasn’t so cloudy, the view would have been amazing from up there! We stopped to feed a baby elephant on the way back, who kept trumpeting if we moved away from him with the food… So cute! Buddhist temples are so ornate and beautiful, too. Our evening was spent at the Siam Niramit show, which was show about Thai culture in different areas of the country. This was awesome… There was a river between the theatre stage and the seating, and some of the performers would perform in the walkways of the theatre, rather than solely being on stage… An elephant even came along the walkways at one stage, and rain fell from the roof into the river! So well done… Too bad we weren’t allowed to take photos of the show! We had a buffet dinner here, and I even had my only cocktail of the trip!

41424344454647484950515253545556Day 6 – In the morning, we went shopping and also had aromatherapy massages. Mum and I headed for a Thai cooking class this afternoon. It was at Pum’s restaurant across from our hotel, which was awesome! We were in the class with another 3 Australians, and we each got to choose 3 recipes we wanted to attempt cooking. I made chicken and cashews, green curry and chicken pad Thai, and Mum cooked chicken satay, chicken sweet chilli stir fry, and prawn pad Thai. Between the 5 of us in class, we also had fried rice, a chicken coconut soup, Penang curry, mango sticky rice and a few other dishes. This was seriously worth doing, especially if you love Thai food as much as I do! We were each given a work book with a selection of recipes, and I brought another 2 of the cookbooks since I want to cook more Thai food at home.

  1. Awesome! Love all the photo! The Thia cooking class sounds fantastic! I have been attempting to cook Pad Sew yew (spelling is completely wrong, hehe) for a while now but i have yet to perfected it! If i every make it to Thailand I will be doing a cooking class!

    • It’s definitely worth taking the time to do it! Price wise, we only paid $40AUD for 4 hours, so you can’t beat that for value! It was right across the hotel in an actual restaurant, too. Some of the longer classes also take you on trips through the markets as well, explaining about buying the produce and what sort of things that are used in the cooking, etc. We wanted to do one that included that, but it was booked out until the day we arrived home.
