if you make it to Bangkok, it is the must see show in town! its worth every baht.
The elephant walks thru the audience, fire goes down the aisle, a river forms on stage, the audience is part of the show, and the ending is spectacular! You cant bring your camera inside, so chcek out the video on the website to see the inside better.
outside the show are a few of the characters. the show basically tells the story of Bangkok from a mythical perspective., with 150 actors and 500 costumes!
you can feed the elephant sugarcane for $1
some of the dancers were outside before the show started!
The green guy, is one of the protective warrior monkeys. Thai people will get a tattoo of him, or Hanuman and believe that the tattoo will protect them from bad things.
ok, there is a reason for this picture. On our first trip to Thialand, I wanted to give money to everyone on the street! We quickly learned that the people begging were actually kidnapped by Cambodians and had legs or arms cut off to make them look worse on the street. Sometimes they also will give the person a baby to hold, and if you watch for awhile you can see them switch the babies out! If you do want to help, there are plenty of places that could really use the money!
on the other hand, there is this other guy we usually see without legs, and he rides around on a skateboard doing tricks with his hands and arms! He is awesome!
more street food! most of the food is ok to eat from these vendors as long as you watch them actually cook the meat and dont wash their knife off in some nasty water!
Last time I was in Thailand was like 5 or 6 years ago and I actually remember visiting Tiger Kingdom. Especially when I was so afraid to pet the tiger and missed out on a unique oppertunitiy!
That's kinda sad about the beggers in Thailand. Kinda reminds me of that movie Slumdog Millionaire.
The Snow Town attraction in Dream World is definately one you don't want to miss as it's basically the only time you'll ever see snow in Thailand. It's basically like a giant refridgerator room with man made snow inside and a sledding hill. It's also a good way to cool off if you've been outside in he heat toolong. Hanging Coaster (now known as Sky Coaster) at got some new trains (as well as a new paint job and name) after I left so I didn't get to try them out but they look pretty cool.
I finally got some free time to check your report out and I am amazed and totally fascinated by everything you posted!
The tigers, toilets, food, sponser kid, EVERYTHING!
I am even more impressed with you, to be able to go over there and look like you feel right at home.
I liked when you told everyone that Jeffrey interprets for President Obama, reminds me when Jeffrey told me that he and Obama were talking about The Big Mike Road Show together!!! That made my day when he told me that lol.
So many great things to talk about in your trip report and I know I missed a whole much of things I wanted to compliment you on, but I will just say that I really cant wait to read and see more, and actually see you Jeffrey and Parker again real soon!
Thank you my Big Friend!!!!!!! Did you notice that Sathit has friend spelled wrong on his shirt? When a company spells something wrong a shirt, they give them away to kids like him.
Thanks to everyone else for the kind words also!!!
Finally here is Dream World!
It cost about $30 for them to come pick you up at your hotel, take you to the park, have unlimted rides, a full buffet lunch, and return to your hotel! Not bad at all!
I had to pay a different price since i am a Farang, but that is common to most of Bangkok. I also had to wear a sticker that said I was a foreigner!
ANyway, here is the first set of pics.
I finally made it!
This is one of my favorite pics!!!!! You think six flags will put these up next year????
One of several politically incorrect parts of the park.
I think these people just got married.
My husband told me it was ok to ride all the rides here....but after seeing some of the Thai construction and maintence...I had second thoughts!
Space Mountain!!!!! Where am i again????
The Thai people have a thing for ghosts. There is a soap opera where the ghosts are the major part of the show!
Here is the girl version of the toilet.
and here it is!!!! this thing scared the crap out of me! I have not ridden thousands of coasters like a lot of you...but I still know that this one sucked!!!! It almost totally stopped half way thru and I was not sure we would make it back to the station!
here is my comfy seat!!!!
is that bar down the middle in the track just to hold it in place?
I will try to put more of the pics up after dinner tonight.
This should be just about the last of the pics that I have.
Feel free to ask any questions about Thailand or the parks!
Welcome back to my Photo TR!
I did not go into snow town...it snows enough where I live, so i didnt need to see it here!
I was not so sure about the monorail....doesnt it look kind of rickety to you?????
The Thai version of a tee pee!
That malaria water looks awesome! I had no idea what they were saying at this show...they kept shouting in Thai over the speaker system...I dont think that the native Thai speakers even understood them!
Why is this dude wearing hot pink underwear????
once again, noted!
most everyone wore these for the water rides.
Thai cowboys are AWESOME!!!!!
I really like the originality of the names here!
Helmets are required!!!!
the assortment of flavors is great!!! You cant that here in the mid west!
more coaster shots
I make an awesome female knight!!!!
help! i have fallen, and I cant get up! life alert...where are you!!!!!
inside the giants house
The Thai people really dont care about copyright infridgement, or registered trademarks.
Our neighbor here at home saw this pic, and said" that guy doesnt look thai at all!"
this is me on the shuttle bus. The sticker I had to wear shows that i am not Thai! Duh! I have bigger boobs than any Thai woman I saw the entire trip! Whenever I would go to buy a shirt, the Thai woman would smile and say " they too big, they too big" and point at my boobs!
I will end with the pic of the King...the Thai people look upon him as almost a god on earth.
we leave next week for a super fantastic overseas trip! follow along with us when we get back as we will try to play a " where in the world " game..like robb and elisa... the place is amazing and will be very hard to guess!!!!!!!!!
