tour on the River Kwai
This is a wonderful country impressed me with its history, existing contradictions and very friendly people.But the most vivid and emotional impression left after a tour of the River Kwai.
Tour itself was very intense.On the way we talked a lot about the country and its traditions, the people of Thailand, about what is good, patient and cheerful people.The country thousands of smiles - so is also called Thailand.Thais love life and the people around them, and so they are always smiling.While in Thailand, involuntarily begin to imitate their openness and goodwill.
guide Russian boy living in Thailand for several years, he was obviously in love with Thailand .His stories were filled with affection and pride for this country and its inhabitants.We visited the teak factory where wood is cut such amazing picture ... Looking at these pictures it seems that carved frakturno heroes, here, here come to life and you will go to a meeting.Teak furniture can afford only very wealthy pe
Then we went on a boat ride on the river, which is the world's largest floating market.There once was filmed the movie "Bangkok Dangerous".
We visited the legendary and tragic place a bridge over the River Kwai.The people of this bridge is called "the road of death."During the Second World War, many people were killed there.
Then followed a visit to the farm of elephants.Elephant Thailand and symbol of a sacred animal.We were told about white elephants.These elephants naturally exist.This albino elephants.Anyone born in the territory of Thailand, a white elephant is automatically recognized as the property of the king.The more white elephants the ruler, the steeper the king himself!White elephant care and cherish.They are fed exclusively from gold plates and comb only gold crest.
We watched the performance of young elephants, they juggled, ring spun and danced.After feeding the elephants bananas, we went for a ride on adult elephants.Our accompanying Thais sang to us at this time Russian songs, plucking flowers from the trees, wove are wreaths and ornaments on his head, and gave them to the girls.
we swam and washed the elephants in the river.This is a very emotional event.All sit on the neck of the elephants, and "caravan" is swimming.Thai waters shampoo, and then you lather neck elephant.In order to wash away the foam elephant immersed in water, and that's sitting on an elephant you have already waist-deep in water.Some elephants were recruited into their trunks and water in response to your concern doused from head to toe.People should also wash.So they bathed my son, he was very satisfied!
we had to spend the night at the hotel, which is located in the heart of the jungle.
to the hotel, we went on a bamboo raft on the River Kwai.Some stretches of the river we passed ourselves.Wearing life jackets, and went down into the water, we were given the river.And she carried us in the right direction.
hotel is very nice, with all sides surrounded by wildlife, walking along the paths connecting the body, can be easily found in its path of small lizard-like monitor lizards.Nakupavshis in the pool and enjoy lavish Thai dinner, we went to sleep.
The next day we had to feel that this anti-stress Thai.We must go on radon sources.On the pier, located next to the hotel, we were seated in a beautiful national water craft, and we are in anticipation of pleasure, we went to the sources of enjoyment.The radon springs are located in a conservation area.Before we plunge into the thermal pools, we were asked to take a shower under this waterfall.Then everyone was given a sheet for swimming.The sources need to go naked, wrapped only these sheets.Natural swimming pool on a conservation area a few.They differ from each other.Each has a "highlight".The water temperature ranges from 45 to 20 degrees.
first invited to immerse themselves in the coolest, and the gradual transition from one to the other, to assess the feeling of contrast.There are pools with herbs, plunging into them, you feel like you envelops pleasant aroma.There is a pool with a small fish.You sit down on the stones, lower legs in the water, and then directs them to the pile of small fish.They begin to stick to your feet.It peels, fish eat the old, dead cells of the skin.After this procedure, the feet become smooth and soft.Feels like it tickles.Some brave souls immersed body and then fry pounced on those areas that produce the greatest impression on them.
In the reserve one pool, sitting in which can be seen on the River Kwai and the surrounding jungle.The sight made indelible impression on me.I sat in a natural thermal pool and gazed at the splendor surrounding me.At that moment I thought - now I'm in heaven!This anti-stress !!!
If someone of you have not been to Thailand, and been there, did not have time to visit this wonderful tour, I recommend it to anyone.Anti stress you exactly guaranteed.He will accompany you on everywhere, and in that moment, when you deal with good and funny elephants and at a time when you learn about the patient and cheerful, and Thais living in a unique hotel in the heart of the jungle.The climax of fun and enjoyment will certainly radon sources!
Thailand unusual country.Why do you think most Thais thin?
Live and enjoy every moment of life, as wise and good Thai.
