Visit Thailand: Day Trip to Danok
Luckily I scanned through my collection of pictures today! If not, I could have missed out sharing all about Danok, Thailand with you! Hahaha! Err, not all about Danok lah! But our day trip to Danok. All thanks to dear TT ‘kor-kor’ (brother) and his pretty wife! Thank you ah….
Getting out of Alor Star for the day trip!
Used the PLUS Highway to the North!
Here’s driving through the Malaysian Immigration!
“Wind down the windows and let the officer see your faces.
Don’t make monkey faces!
Make sure you look like the picture in your passport!”
Brother TT parked his car at the Duty Free Complex, which was located between the two countries’ immigration.
He told us that we will be walking into Thailand from here!
Ya lor! We were on foot already here!
See! People all driving in wor….haizz…
I asked dear cousin to stop here for a picture!
E1 @ zero, Malaysia border and at the background was Thai border!
Wah! Between the sign where she stood to the wall of Thailand where their flags flying proud, we would be neither in Malaysia or Thailand!
Brother TT, dear wife and dear cousin were busy completing their Thai immigration card.
Eh, dear cousin, please complete my form also ah, I busy taking pictures lah!!
I waited but I did not get my receipt for my RM2 paid which I submitted with my passport wor.
Anyway, what overtime fees and other expenses lah??
Bro TT said it would be rude to ask, so we just forgone getting the receipt.
This was not a good idea at all!
Shopping for pulut rice first!
Poor cousin had to carry 6kg of rice on her back from this shop onwards!
And later, after we reached KL, she found out she was cheated 100g out of each kg.
Ya lor, she weighed the rice! Hahaha! Serious ah…
This town, was a busy town on that Sunday!
Massive traffic throughout the day!
As dear Mrs TT said, “Danok is a shopping paradise!”
True enough! Stores, stalls and shops everywhere!
And shopped we did for the whole day!!!
Should have brought a trolley each!
Bad planning, bad planning… hehe.
While that two ladies were busy shopping and brother TT was busy helping dear wife with her shopping bags, I was busy taking pictures of everything and anything! Hehe.
“Only One Chicken” shop means selling only one chicken ke?
We found a road side stall that sold brewed tea.
The guy in front of the line was wearing this pair of pink bear foot!
I could not helped myself in asking for permission to take picture of his slippers!
He looked at me one kind and then said OK.
He must thought I was a country bumpkin from Malaysia in Danok!
Why? Never saw slippers before ke??
My favourite picture of this trip!
Malaysia and Thailand working together for a good course!
Food stalls here sell similar food as in Malaysia but whether they taste the same, I am not so sure lah.
When go Thailand, must eat Thai food mah!
Then I spotted McDonald’s claim of “Delicious Starts Right Here”….
Sorry lah, no fast food please!
No fast food in a foreign country, okay!
We saw two kids cutting some fruits at the road side.
Oh, sea coconut!
Wah! Such young age and they were already working hard for their money!
Did they have a choice??
Poor birds died legs straight for sale!
Headless some more!
A picture from some horror movies!
We found a mobile “som tam” (Thai salad) stall.
Dear cousin was so thrilled with the whole som tam making process that she stood at the stall taking pictures of every step!
Of course we did not stand at the roadside and eat lah!
We got class one and we found a nice picnic place in front of a hotel nearby to feast it!
We found the adult elephant (there was a baby elephant too, strolling another road) used by its owners to seek donations from tourists or passerbys.
They claimed that the donation was used to feed the elephants.
Here, there were many kids running around on their own.
One was even playing by the road side….haizzz…
Guess their parents were too busy making a living!
We had been walking around Danok from noon to almost 7pm!
Almost 7 hours of walking , shopping and eating and walking, shopping and eating!
Fun in great company!
Bye Danok, Thailand!
Back to Kedah, Malaysia!!
Thank you dear brother TT and dear wife for this lovely day trip!
Dear cousin and I had a wonderful, wonderful time!
Thank you, thank you!
Have you been to Danok before?
