ELEPHANT NATURE PARK

One of my bucketlist is to volunteer in elephant sanctuary not to ride or go to an elephant show. I know that Thailand is popular in their elephant tourism and they torture the elephants to entertain the tourist but it's your choice where to spend your money for elephant experience.


I picked Elephant Haven by Elephant Nature Park in Sai Yok, Kanchanaburi. Located in West Thailand. It is just a 3 drive from Bangkok. We stayed in Arnoma Grand Hotel and we rented a taxi for a whole day going to Sai Yok, i think it cost 3,000 to 3,500 baht for the taxi.

You can book your Elephant Haven Single Day - Sai Yok Kanchanaburi HERE.The rate for adult is 2,500 baht and for the kids it's 1,250 bath and that include the lunch, round trip to Kanchanaburi Bus Station, and a guide.

BKK THAILAND

Last March, I went to Bangkok with my family for a short vacay. Yey we are complete, finally!
From the airport, me and Nanay decided to take the Bangkok Sky Train to the hotel (the moment i realized that my mother trust me when it comes to commuting in the other countries). We bought a one way ticket from the airport to Phaya Thai Station and we bought a tourist card for the BTS, from there we need to stop at Chit Lom Station because it is a walking distance to Arnoma Hotel where we will stay for days.

Our afternoon until night agenda is we will shop at the famous Chatuchak Market, this market is humongous. I bought some stuff like passport cover for my friends, flurry slip on, clothes, and we tried their local food there. You can check a shop that you can choose your patches and put it in a passport cover, wallet or bag.



Day 2, we rent a taxi for a whole day which is contacted by our hotel staff. We went to their Damnoen Saduak floating market and we didn't enjoy that much because…

MACAU

From Hong Kong we took a ferry going to Macau. see prices and schedule  here.

WHERE WE STAY:
First night, we stayed at our kababayan's boarding house/apartment in Taipa for 50HKD per person. Thanks to the OFW peeps for the company. When we arrived at Macau we can not used our HK sim to call or text the landlady but thanks to the good samaritan (OFW) who let us borrow his phone. Filipinos are really welcoming around the globe.

Second night we booked at Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel via Ctrip.

WHAT TO DO:

Macau was colonized by the Portuguese in 16th century until now they preserved some structures that you need to visit because it is listed in UNESCO World Heritage. Also, visit casinos in Cotia, Macau.
