An Indian wedding in Thailand
 
 
Posted by Adilson Randi

On this episode we talk to Steve Hackett who just got back from an incredible trip in Thailand where he not only attended, but participated in a Thai wedding between two of his close friends. He brings us through his experience on the long haul from the eastern coast of the US to Thailand and his time chaotically navigating the Bangkok airport, traffic, and city life. Then Steve breaks down some of the highlights between a culturally fascinating wedding between a Sikh groom and Hindi bride, where Steve was one of 700 guests.

On today’s episode we discuss: 

  • Steve’s experience shopping through some of the beautiful commercial districts of Thailand; 

    he preventative shots you should get prior to your departure to southeastern Asia; 

    • Steve brings us back to some of the temples he visited and talks about his boat tour;  

    • Steve shares his preferences on touring Thailand with some friends rather than coordinating a group tour; 

    • We talk about the exciting nightlife industry on Khaosan Road and the bug-eating scene;

    • We talk about the currency exchange rate and discuss some of the luxuries that come to western tourists as a result; 

    • Steve discusses his time as a participant in his friends wedding in Thailand and his adjustment to the attire, food, and ceremony; 

    • We learn that not only was Steve a guest to this wedding, but he was also an active participant who had to perform a choreographed dance for the bride and groom!
