“Adventure may hurt you, but monotony will kill you.”
– Ghaniya Dewi Arassyi

After the group traveled for 19.5 hours, they stopped at Wat Pro to salute the Reclining Buddha and inhale the scents of the exotic Thai culture. They did not reach Anantara Riverside, the resort, until five hours post-landing time.

They then had a two-hour Orientation Luncheon at the hotel. Simultaneously, a team of three local tailors took their measurements for custom-made Western and Thai garments that would be delivered to their quarters within 48 hours!

Since the group was pre-checked from New York, the check-in process was speedy. Their luggage preceded them in their room. The Anantara Riverside is a fancy 396-room resort, sprawling over 11 acres on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River.

The Anantara chain, along with the Changri-La, seems to be the king of luxury hospitality in Southeast Asia. The level of comfort, the quality of service, and the multiplicity of offered activities are outstanding. The Riverside outfit is only a few miles away from the tourist areas. The traveler may use road traffic or the river waterway. The staff at Anantara, in gorgeous uniforms, is dedicated and knowledgeable. They seem to have been recruited from a beauty pageant.

First Night was Dinner Dance Night on the Showboat Cruise on Sabai. Because Anantara owns a private pier, the arrangement for bus transfer was canceled. The boat came to welcome the travelers literally “at home”.

Dinner, of true and original Thai food, was delicious.

Sleepless for two nights, the revelers nevertheless danced and sweat, at high decibel level, under a starry sky, on calm cruising water, with unassuming energy and explosive entrain. Reggae, konpa, salsa, merengue, African beats were all mixed to produce a few hours of repudiation of the mathematical concept of exhaustion.

Finally, the longest day that started on Monday, in the Americas, ended in the first minutes of Thursday in Southeast Asia. After unpacking, the travelers will have a few hours of REM sleep.
Serious matters start at 7:00 AM.
