Yes! I am back and my blogging journey has finally resumed after a month!
I am sorry for not bringing up much content in my blog recently but I promise, more to come! Keep an eye on my blog and youtube channel!
FYI, I have spent splendid days in Khaoyai and Bangkok a week ago. Actually I have been to Bangkok for about 3 times in just 2 years, hence I decided to go somewhere away from the busy city. There I went to Khaoyai for a day and I am back here to share with you guys!
It was definitely the most memorable trip ever, as I have experienced my very first flood not in Malaysia, but in Bangkok! How crazy!
Woke up at 6am, we got our way down to the hotel lobby via stairs as the lift was not in service. Arriving the lobby, we were warmly welcomed by the water that raised up till my ankles. There was flood all over the lobby till the main road, which the water level was actually up till the knees. Luckily, we planned our day to Khaoyai and surprisingly the driver was super responsible that he found his way, going through the flood with his bare feet, just to reach us in the hotel and drive us to Khaoyai.
It took us about 3 hours drive from Phrom Phong, Bangkok to The Bloom, Khaoyai.
Very first stop, I went to The Bloom Khao Yai, which is known as a magnificent garden with variety of beautiful blooming flowers. Entrance fees at 100B per person.

The only ultimate floral backdrop I found which is Insta-worthy LOL.
Beside 30 species of flowers that yet to bloom, there are some tiny surprises laying in the bed of flower gardens, like the floral carriage and some other cartoon characters.
I came in the wrong season as there wasn't much flowers blooming, instead of a bed of flowers, I saw only bushy deserted areas and some just-planted plants. Make sure you are visiting The Bloom during the right season, which is Winter, from November till February.
Second stop, we visited alpaca at Primo Piazza.
Entrance fee at 200B per person.
I was kinda disappointing as I did not manage to visit alpaca in Taiwan few years back, but here we were, feeding the alpaca, in Khaoyai!
Third stop: Piazza Palio! This is also my favorite places among all! Another Italy-themed village here.
There again, wall plants that trailing down the rock walls! Spectacular!
There are even shops that selling art and crafts.
Wandering down the street, I am in love!
The best hot chocolate I've tried ever! The sweetness and milkiness were just perfect!
Actually we planned to visit Farm Chokchai too, but the rain stopped us from doing so. We headed back to the city around 4pm.
