My First FAM Trip to Thailand - Memories from Day 1

I love living out of a suitcase. After visiting over ten countries from 2005 to 2016, I came to the conclusion that I'd never be able to find a place to stay forever. This was until I discovered the Amazing Thailand!

New Beginnings
Suffice to say that my new year started off with a bang!

On January 6, 2016, I was invited by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to be on a familiarization (FAM) tour to Bangkok and Hua Hin. By a strange coincidence, the Thailand Tourism Festival 2016 was also under way from January 13 to 18 in Bangkok.
Thailand sounded like a perfect getaway for vacation, so I graciously accepted the invitation to be on the tour.
My itinerary for six days was planned to a tee. Since my air tickets, hotel stay, and meals were already taken care of by TAT New Delhi, all I needed to do was to soak in the experience of the Land of Smiles.
In this blog post, I am going to summarize the Day 1 of my first FAM tour to Thailand.
