Bangkok, Thailand

Overview

Bangkok, also known as the City of Angels and Venice of the East, will hit you like a ton of bricks. Hot, polluted, and chaotic, it thrills with energy, and the sightseeing, shopping, and eating possibilities are so vast that you\'ll have little time to rest. When you do find a moment, though, you can pamper yourself at spas, skyline-view bars, luxurious hotels, and excellent restaurants. Sriracha Tiger Zoo is one of famous zoo in Chonburi, Thailand. Although its name is tiger zoo, there are not just tigers inside, but there are in fact a lot of animals in the zoo, such as camels, ostriches, crocodiles, elephants, and so on. However, the tiger word is included in its title because tigers are the first animal that the zoo focused on. Sriracha Tiger Zoo also presents a variety of tiger shows, tigers with fire-hoops, tigers climbing a ladder, for example. It\'s just like an interesting circus show, so this would make both you and your kids enjoys a lot. Sriracha Tiger Zoo started taking care of tigers in 1982, where at the time the zoo obtained four couples of tigers from the Chiang Mai Zoo. Sriracha Tiger Zoo chose to raise tigers because of the preventing objective. In the past, there were a lot of tigers in Asia, which can be seen as a trademark of Asia, but at the present, there are significantly less than before. With the main objective, Sriracha Tiger Zoo can also earn information and educate those who are interested in animal study. At the present there are more than 400 tigers in Sriracha Tiger Zoo. Pattaya Sheep Farm is a family-friendly attraction located by the Pattaya-Chonburi Highway, on the outskirts of town. With an almost cartoonish farmyard look, it is home to an impressive menagerie of cute and cuddly creatures. There is also a small fairground, a Dutch-style windmill, a great restaurant and even a small floating market, providing a wide range of activities for the whole family to enjoy. The extremely popular farm mostly caters to young children, who get in for free (if they are under 110cm), while adults need to pay 50 baht entry. It is essentially a large petting zoo, with sheep, goats, donkeys, ponies, pigs, rabbits and alpacas among the more fluffy residents. Equally adorable are the tortoises, parrots, peacocks, turkeys, buffalo and others, all of which live in a charming, picturesque setting right out of TV shows like Little House on the Prairie. Coral Island near Pattaya is a little piece of paradise beyond the hustle and bustle of Pattaya. Although Thailand’s famous beach resort town would not be your first thought when imagining a cerulean blue sea and a long stretch of pristine beach void of high-rise buildings and away from the claws of civilization, this little idyllic island offers exactly that and is just a short ferry ride away from Walking Street. Also known by its Thai name of Koh Larn (and sometimes as Larn Island), Coral Island is situated 7.5 kilometres west of Pattaya Beach. It has long been an alternative retreat for those who have become jaded with Pattaya’s overdeveloped and overcrowded beaches. Since the island is not so far away, visitors can easily go there in the morning, stay for several hours and then come back to Pattaya Beach in the late afternoon. Silverlake winery (Silverlake Vineyards or Silverlake Grape Farm) has recently become one of most popular attractions in Pattaya. Although visitors are unable to see the wine yards with a plenty of grapes all the times, it is still very popular without any seasoning problems. This is because visitors can find a spectacular view at this Silverlake Winery such as the colorful flowers, Khao Chi Chan as a background, sunset at the lake, and so on. Activities and grape-made products are also provided to become more attractive to visitors. One of Pattaya’s most noticeable landmarks is the 130 meters high Buddha Mountain. A huge golden Buddha image is depicted on the mountain, which is also called Khao Cheejan and can be seen from miles away. The Buddha image that is officially called Phra Phuttha Maha Wachira Uttamopat Satsada was created in 1996 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s accession the the throne. During the Vietnam War the Thai Army used Khao Cheejan mountain for its mining efforts. The stones were used at U-Tapao airport, which was at the time an American army base. After the war mining continued for construction purposes until 1976. The Buddha image was carved out of the rock using laser technology. After that, it was inlaid with gold leaf, a process that took months to complete. The impressive Sukhothai era Buddha image is 130 meters high and 70 meters wide, making it one of the biggest Buddha images in the world. Buddha Mountain, which is also called Khao Cheejan or Khao Chee Chan, is set in beautifully landscaped gardens. There is a number of salas (open pavilions) and pools filled with lotus flowers giving the place a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere.
