It’s true— once you tried another country’s transportation system, you won’t ever commute in the Philippines the same way again. Rush hour? No worries, you’ll still get a seat. Toilet call? Sure, there’s a toilet on train. I can take the longest train ride of my life and never feel burnt out. 📸 ernest_wilde on Instagram

"Little Patricia wants to ride, something she has never tried. Who could it be by her side? Where TUK be, where could she be? She said -- My mom will be my guide, as we try tuk-tuk -- The Thailand's pride." Every country has their own identification. Aside from flags and national emblems, culture speaks for a country's identity. This includes history, religion, food staples -- and even, transportation. As for Thailand, the country is known for "tuk-tuks". This is one of the main source of transportation in Thailand -- a three-wheeled vehicle that can ride you around the city's most magical places. I remember when I watched Miss Universe 2015, Miss Thailand conceptualized her national costume in line with Thailand's Tuktuk. Since then, it became one of my travel goals -- to ride a Tuktuk. Although almost similar to the "tricycle" that we have in the Philippines, I guess travelling with tuktuk in Bangkok might just give me a different vibe. That's why despite the alleged overcharging rates, I believe that tuktuk is not completely a bad news to take. Knowing that good haggling can be my way out and with all the precautionary measures I've learned about tuktuks, I still want TUK experience it with my mom. She taught me to always see the good in every people. Thereupon, even if some tourists may say that few drivers may just fool me out of commission, WE SHOULD JUST BE KEEN AND CRITICAL TOURISTS. In that way, nothing would not make me check off my bucketlist of riding a tuktuk. In Thailand, I TRUST.

I will be honest with you, the 𝗯𝗮𝗺𝗯𝗼𝗼 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁 is much overrated. It`s actually very short, and the crowds jamming the path as early as 8am with their tripods and their sorry attempts at taking selfies did not help with the atmosphere (watching some people try so hard was entertaining, though). Going any earlier would probably be pointless, since even at that hour the forest is deep in shadow. I`m not saying you shouldn`t visit this iconic spot, just be warned that 200% of the photos you have seen of it have been heavily photoshopped. (The photo in this post is taken in Arashiyama but at a different location; while a little different, you can take your time snapping beautiful photos in this secluded place 💟🔜 I'll talk about this place in a Arashiyama dedicated list available to followers only, so check back soon!) 📌 𝗧𝗲𝗻𝗿𝘆𝘂𝗷𝗶. At 8:30am a crowd had gathered in front of the temple waiting for the gates to open. I decided to skip right past, and I`m glad I did. The other temples I visited were all quiet and surreal. ♨️ At noon, I was done sightseeing and headed to 𝗙𝘂 𝗙𝘂 𝗡𝗼 𝗬𝘂 hot springs. The bridge was jammed pack with people, but I only had to share the onsen with 2 other ladies. It was fun to slowly enjoy the facilities, jumping from bath to bath. Though I heard the men's side is smaller, the woman's side has 2 indoor baths (normal and milk) and 2 outdoor baths (normal and cold), a sauna, a steam room and free salt scrub. 💸 I got a discount coupon from my hostel, but I'm sure they are available at other locations such as the information booth. 📌 Togetsukyo Bridge 📌 Arashiyama Monkey Forest 📌 Kimono Forest 📌 Kameyama Park 📌 Hogon-in Temple 📌 Suzumushi Temple 📌 Jojakkoji Temple 📌 Nisonin Temple 📌 Giouji Temple 📌 Saga Toriimoto Preserved Street 📌 Adashino Nenbutsu-ji Temple 📌 Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple
