Long ago I dreamed to visit Thailand and India, and there was a wish to go to a travel not to each country separately, and to choose such route that it was possible to visit two countries for once at once. In spite of the fact that such route is more difficult, it will be much more saturated and more interestingly.

Travel from Thailand to India on the car

I prepared for a trip all year and have thought over all details. At last, when it is time holidays, I could start on the journey. For a start I will tell some trifles of a travel to Thailand. Between this country and Russia it is signed a number of agreements under which, execution of the visa to trips for up to 30 days isn’t required. That is to arrive to Thailand it is enough to hold the international passport and the plane ticket.

As soon as you arrive to the city of Bangkok (or any other Thai city), in your international passport will put a special stamp in which date of arrival and date of departure will be specified. And for an additional fee you can always prolong the term of the stay in this country.

My travel from Russia to Thailand has begun at Sheremetyevo Airport, I have arrived to the airport in 3 hours prior to flight departure to make landing, without hurrying also with comfort. The ticket to Bangkok has cost me only 22000 rubles in one party.

During flight I should cross 3 time zones and to overcome more than 9000 kilometers. In total it was necessary to spend slightly more than 9 hours in air.

We have landed at the Suvarnabhumi Airport, it is the main air hub in Bangkok. The first thing I remembered is how I got out of the Airport, I immediately felt this tart, moistened with moisture and the scents of the greenery in air. Now with this feeling I associate with Thailand.

I have reserved hotel in advance and on an arrival my bus already stood waiting for passengers. In spite of the fact that Thailand not the biggest state, will hardly be possible to visit all the most interesting even in 30 days. For this reason I have decided to visit the most known places. Unlike many tourists, I don’t disdain popular tourist routes, all at rather high level there. Therefore during the stay I have managed to raft on the river Kvai, to drive on elephants in mountains of northern Thailand, to participate in night fishing on the Andaman Sea. Generally, I was gained the mass of impressions and it is time to change a route and to go to India. How to reach from Thailand to India? – I have answered this question in advance. There are at least 3 options: by land, by sea and plane. Since I did not have time, I have chosen the fastest option and have used services of one of airlines.
