Well we had to go…it is a rule when you are in a foreign land that you must go to the fast food places from your home country to compare and contrast. At least that is Jeffrey’s rule. To be honest I think he just wanted Tacos…lol To the counter we went. It looked right with all the branded images and outfits. The ordering was a bit of a thing. I have never been asked so many questions about a number 1 meal (2 Supreme Tacos and chips or fries)….ummm fries with tacos…no thank you. But then the questions started….
When you get into the Thavorn grounds, which are vast, you are surrounded by whimsical manicured gardens and animal sculptures, 4 pools (one with water slides, one with a swim up bar), a huge Koi Pond with waterfall in the middle of the Breakfast area, beautiful open air lobby, fitness center, spa and an amazing Zen Garden to reflect in.
We wandered out to the beach and it was beautiful….small but beautiful. There were just a few people who were lying around on towels or sitting in the shade of the palm trees. I mean just perfect. We selected our spot and laid out our towel and within 5 min it started pouring down rain…lol. So the entire beach gathered their items and dispersed mostly to scooters. We went across to one of the restaurants. It was a delight beautiful garden atmosphere. That is when I noticed the Black Bat Wing Orchid….casually sitting in a pot near a table.
