Did you know that yesterday was R U OK day? A day when we are reminded to start a meaningful conversation whenever you spot the signs that someone you care about might be struggling with life. Everyone (including children) can have these R U OK conversations; you don’t need any qualification. Listening and giving someone your time might just be what they need to help them through. Hope we all can be aware and do our part.

Destination Highlight – Pattaya

We’ve covered Pattaya previously, but since our recent trip is still fresh in mind, we’d like to cover some attractions that will give you reasons to (re)visit Pattaya.

Have you been to Sanctuary of Truth? It is not a temple; the place is best described as a visionary environment: part art installation, religious shrine, and cultural monument. It is made entirely of wood (no metal nails) and commanding celestial view of the ocean. To me personally, the place gave a sort of calming energy. What’s incredible are the stories and teachings that make you reflect – thus the name of the place, Sanctuary of Truth.

How about Nong Nooch Garden? It is one of the largest botanical gardens we’ve been. If you are into gardening, you will be blown away with the variety of plantations they house. Their Dinosaur Valley would drop your jaw even if you’re not a dinosaur enthusiast. More than 100 species of dinosaurs were moulded to excite tourists; the place will certainly take you back in time. 

Product Highlight – Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort Pattaya

Seeking a top-notch summer / family holiday? 

  • Beachfront
  • Amazing waterpark
  • Family luxury hotel
  • Family club lounge
  • Outdoor play area that features three-level playground  (slides, trampoline, raft game, playground tower, and a digging pit.)
  • Indoor play area features arts and craft, junior cooking class.
  • The Lost World Adventure Land was just launched August 2022; you can zipline and navigate your way across a choice of two obstacle courses in the sky.

I’d say a family could easily spend a week within the property without needing to go outside. They are an absolute entertainment centre for those who love enjoying the sun, water, soft adventure, with lots of fun family activities to be had. Certainly, is one of our top household’s favourites. 

Have a good weekend everyone.
