Last Day of the Year in Khao Yai, Thailand.

in #travel6 years ago

Would you follow me again today for this last trip of the year with my family in Khao Yai, Thailand? Yesterday, I wrote a post for the first day of the trip that you can read here: A Busy Day in Khao Yai, Thailand.

Khao Yai is a favorite destination for people to celebrate the new year and we can see that it is true today with the traffic jams.

I wrote two blog posts for a previous trip three months ago when it was very quiet and you can read them here: Two nights at the U Khao Yai Resort and SPA and The Papillon French Bistro at U Khao Yai Resort.

Last Day of the Year in Khao Yai, Thailand.

We stayed at the Yura Kiri Resort Khao Yai until 11:00 a.m. because we enjoyed the cool weather there. Someone also enjoyed flying her kite as it was very windy.

Palio Kahoyai

We first went to Palio Kahoyai, which is not very far from the resort. It's where we found traffic and then a lot of people there.

Address: 146/1 Moo 4, Palio Khaoyai, Thanarat Road Km 17, Mu Si, Pak Chong District, Nakhon Ratchasima 30130, Thailand.

It's a bit like an outdoor shopping mall.

Let's see some photos.

We went to Palio 3 months ago and during regular times it is not very lively. Almost no one and a lot of shops were closed at the time.

The Witches Brew

We had a late lunch at the Witches Brew, which is just next to the Palio. It's where we parked the car in fact because there is a lot of space available there. Almost all of the buildings are empty.

Address: 379/10 Veneto Piazza Thanarad Road, Moosi, Pak Chong District, Nakhon Ratchasima 30130, Thailand.

The food was excellent with a lot of choice.

After lunch, we went straight to the Starlite Khaoyai hotel for the night.

Address: Nong Nam Daeng, Pak Chong District, Nakhon Ratchasima 30130, Thailand.

Let's see some photos of the Cottage house we had now.

The main room.

Very basic bathroom.

A huge terrace.

After an afternoon nap, we had dinner in the room and I proceeded writing this last post of the year.

I hope that you enjoyed this post and all the photos. Please upvote if you'd like me to write more travel posts with photos like this one.

Happy New Year 2018!

Look likes a perfect winter sunny day at Khao Yai, Korat. Millions thanks @gmichelbkk for all great journey of Thailand that reminds me my Thailand. Wish you a Healthy Happy New Year to you & your family. :-)

Thank you very much @andyjim for your comment. The weather this morning remind me of France. Happy New Year!


It looks so fun! Everyone went home! Bangkok cleared out big time. It was so quiet here at MRT Sutthisan.

Have you had any success with money? I am so confused. I really need to get some of my sbd out.

Thank you for your comment @fitinfun. Bangkok can be fun too, when everyone else is out.

Yes, I have a solution now, and tested it twice, SBD from Steemit to 2 different Thai bank accounts, and I'm writing the first tutorial today and this will be 2 or 3, because it was a bit challenging to get verified with them, and following the tutorial will save you time.

My my goodness. I am so beyond my limits.

I wrote this post to try to get my son some cash in California and I will soon post one similar for me in Bangkok.

I am trying to think out of the box.

Yes, that's a good idea for one time, but using PayPal is not ideal because of the fees and it may take also more time to withdraw. There are risks too as the person who sent the money in PayPal and then get your SBD & Steem can then ask for a refund, open a dispute, and if the money was for buying crypto, they will refund him and maybe freeze the Paypal account. It's against their ToS to trade crypto. Many people have lost their money like that and it's something that should be done only with trusted friends in my opinion. Why is your son not using Coinbase? Very easy for the US to connect a bank account on it.

I was thinking that fact that he sent the invoice would make it a "not crypto" issue. I was able to pay an invoice he sent from pp with only a $5 fee. I thought that was good.

He has his own troubles with no phone to access the coinbase he does have.

Once we get this figured out he will get a phone I hope. He has ptsd and does not function well so every step is a struggle.
