How to Shake the Winter Blues by Taking a One Day Bus Trip or Mini Vacation

Have you ever thought of going on a summer vacation or trip, or perhaps you take one every year with your family or a close friend, you can do the same thing during the winter, only a lot more times, and a lot cheaper, by taking one day mini vacations or bus trips. In the summer when you take a weeks vacation or such, you might have to hire someone to watch your home, or feed your pets while your away, or have delivery of your mail stopped until you return home, and you have luggage and travel related items to pack, and all them travel bags and items to cart around, and the hotel keys or passes to manage, plus all of the stress of getting ready and settling in at your destination.

When you take a one day bus trip during the winter, you eliminate all of the hassles of a summer vacation, including the luggage and the stress. How much does it cost to take a week or two weeks vacation, $2,000 or even more? Some folks spend a great deal more then that on a vacation, to me that’s ridiculous, a vacation should be something that helps you have fond memories a long time after it’s over with. Spending thousands of dollars for something like a vacation will give you some nice memories, but it also will give you many months, or years of loan payments.

Every city and even most smaller towns now days have motorcoach charters, or bus lines to travel spots that you can visit and then return home from, the same day, usually later at night. All you need to take on a one day bus trip is your purse or wallet, your tickets and money. If you live next to Mexico or Canada, then you will probably need a photo id and a passport as you cross the borders.

One day bus trips are exciting and the memories will last a lifetime, and the destinations are almost limitless and vary depending upon where you live, for example here where I live in PA, there are one day bus trips to several different casinos such as Atlantic City in New Jersey, New York City sightseeing, New York City Statue of Liberty tour and Shows at Rockefeller Center, Sportsman and Farm Shows, Fairs, Tours at Haunted Locations, Zoos and tons of other great locations including the sights and sounds of Christmas and all the winter Holidays. The trips vary every month, and from November to March, during the cold, snowy months they offer trips to some of the most exciting places.

Almost all of the coach or bus lines that offer the one day trips have schedules and booklets they are glad to mail you for free, and most have all of their trips posted online to see anytime of the day or night. Search the internet or look through the telephone directory to find coach lines or bus services in your area. One day bus trips or mini vacations during the winter months are something you can do every couple of weeks or even weekly if you want, as they are often as cheap as $20. You can schedule a trip on a day your off work, and go by yourself or take a friend or family member along with you. Taking one day winter bus trips is not only exciting, it’s also a great way to help shake the winter blues.

Short Trip Around Bangkok in One Day on Your Vacation

Have you ever asked yourself where to go while you are on your vacation? On an average of 10 to 14 days vacation, you might spend 24 to 36 hours making the trip between your country and destination country. Then, you reach the capital city of your destination country. You seek for the local package tour to get to remote paradise island with beautiful beaches and crystal clear sea. Else, you travel around the country. After all the good time you have on the beach and swimming on the shore. You come back to the city and prepare to go home with sweet memory on this vacation. You wonder what can I do, or whereabouts I can go in the city before I get onto the plane.

That’s right. This is the article for you to take a little tour around Bangkok. Venues I mention here are for all men and women as well as elders. You can take this trip once you reach Bangkok, or one day before you say good bye to Thailand from your vacation. But I really recommend you do this one day before you leave Thailand, for it is convenient to buy souvenir and pack them up. Then, go to the airport the day after.

After all it is not such a good idea to lie down around the swimming pool in the hotel. You’re here for good time to experience the exotic place. You have to explore the city. I assume that most foreign visitors stay in hotels along Sukhumvit and Ratchadapisek roads. That is where the most convenient way to travel around Bangkok. On Sukhumvit road, there is the sky train line which takes you to air conditioner shopping malls as well as the famous flea market Jatujak Market (JJ Market). On Ratchadapisek road, there is subway train running. Both city train lines are intersected on the two points. One point is at the station of Sala-Deang for the sky train and Silom Station for subway on Silom road. The other point is at intersection of Asok Station for sky train and Sukhumvit Station for subway. Usually around rush hours the traffic in Bangkok is very heavy. You can go around this traffic quickly by motorcycle taxies which are easily found on the street. How can you identify the motorcycle taxi? All of the fleet parks in a group, locations like in front of gas station or the entrance of alley. Drivers always wear sleeveless jacket with the number on the back.

Now, your one day trip around Bangkok starts. The first place to visit in the morning is Wat Pra Kaeo (Wat Prasri Rattanasasdaram) and Wat Po. They are located wall to wall. After you are done visiting one temple, you can walk across the street to visit the other temple. Why is interesting to visit both temples? Wat Pra Kaeo houses one of the most important Buddha Image, call the Emerald Buddha Image. The temple has been built as the royal chapel. The decoration and architect of temple reflect the high craftsmanship of Thais. The other temple, Wat Po, is said to be the first university of Thailand. The library in the temple contains the knowledge originated in past. This includes herbal medication, famous traditional Thai massage, and more. This temple has the most number of pagodas in one temple. The statuses found around the temple display the intertwined culture from China. You may find some other thing interesting around the area. Just follow the tourist signs. If you consider yourself as Buddhism, you will enjoy being there. Even you are not Buddhism, it is not so bad to learn and appreciate art and culture there. To get there, it is recommended you take a regular taxi, not a motorcycle taxi. The door is open at 8:00 to 17:00.

So far, you probably have spent two to three hours in the morning. It is almost near lunch time. You may take a lunch break, or you will continue right a way to another corner of Bangkok. From Wat Po, take the taxi to the nearest subway station at Hua Lompong. Let’s buy the token for Jatujak Station and get onto the subway train. About twenty minutes, you will be taken to Jatujak Station and walk a little bit to Train Park (Suan Rod Fai). It is the public park, but why I am suggesting it. If you happen to come to this park on Saturday or Sunday, the Jatujak Market is open. After you have relaxed enough in the park, it is time to go shopping for sweet souvenirs. There is a shipping service in the JJ Market. In the Train Park (Suan Rot Fai), you will find the miniature landmarks, such a Golden Pagoda of Bangkok, (Pu-khao Tong). Another activity is to ride the bicycles in the park. Also, there is the Butterfly Park near by. The Butterfly Park is built with the proper landscape for live butterflies. There is an exhibition hall about the life cycle of insect. In a very big cage, the landscape is built to raise several species of butterflies. If you find that lying around the swimming pool in the hotel is boring, just go to the park.

By relaxing in the park and shopping in the Jatujak Marketing, it is now close to late afternoon. Let’s get back to the heart of Bangkok. We are going to the Baiyok Tower in Pratunam. The tower is venue complex. It has hotel, international restaurants, and others. The Baiyok Tower is the tallest building. You will enjoy the spectacular view of Bangkok on the top roof. It is also near to shopping malls and the sky train. If you happen to check in the hotel there, it is probably the last place to come back.

I wouldn’t say the next place is solely for men, but it seems to me that it is. It is the place where there are a lot of bars. There are two famous places for foreign visitors particularly westerners; they are Patpong and Soi Cowboy. Direction to get there, it is wise I leave the duty to the hotel front desk staff. Both places are open until 2:00 o’clock in the morning. I hope you are not getting too drunk that you miss the flight in the morning. Enjoy your trip in Thailand and Bangkok. Have a nice trip home.
