Day 1- Explore The City Lights
If you are an Indian traveller and can’t do without Indian food, don’t fret…you’ll find plenty of restaurants in Thailand that serve great Indian food.

Pattaya is so full of life, that you can literally see the city change colours as the sun sets. Crowded streets, loud music describe streets of Pattaya aptly, especially the Walking street. Party animals and Shopaholics are in for a treat here.
Day 2- Coral Island Tour
On the second day, adventure begins with the Coral island tour where the group would head to by speedboats riding against the waves. Coral island is a paradise for water sports fanatics- parasailing, surfing, snorkeling, fishing, banana boat rides, canoeing, underwater sea walking, kite boarding…phew, what not!
However, don’t make a face not if you aren’t a water baby and are more of a peace and quiet lover; feel free to bask on a sun lounger with your favorite book to while away your hours along the sound of waves. Take the opportunity to gorge on some lip smacking Thai food for lunch by the beach.
Day 3- Dive Into The Safari World
Day 3 of escapade awaits the group as the trip escalates with a visit to one of the most exciting and fun packed locations of Bangkok. As the Pizza hut folks arrive in the frenetic city, they will be transferred to a journey that will compel them to stare in amazement at stunning creations of nature, nestled amidst picturesque African wilderness setting, from majestic African lions to Royal Bengal tigers. And then, you get ready for a friendly encounter with cute loving dolphins, funny orangutans and colorful tropical birds.
This safari and marine park is a perfect stage to respond to the call of the wild and get mesmerized by some cool fast paced action by Orangutans, dolphins and feathered pals. After a heavy dose of fun at the park, visitors can savour some delectable lunch at the Safari world and head back to the hotel.
Day 4-Discover Bangkok
The holiday ends today for the Pizza hut folks but not without a trip around the city of Angels, as Bangkok is fondly called. You can’t be in a place and not take an interest about the city’s history and culture. In fact, you may as well fell duty bound to spend a couple of hours trying to get to know about the roots of the town or city you are visiting; this would be best discovered by a visit to Bangkok’s most enigmatic and historic temples, the Golden Buddha and the Marble Buddha temple.
The Golden Buddha temple features world’s most massive 5 meters long reclining Golden Buddha statue that was wrapped in plasters over centuries to disguise it from theft from plunderers that helped it go unnoticed for more than 200 years until it was nestled in a brand new temple.
The Marble Buddha temple was built in the 19th century that flaunts a creative blend of European and Thai architecture, its ordination hall has been forged out of white Carara Italian marble in front of which the statue of the Buddha presides. Several paintings decorate the walls of the stupas and along the Veranda, you will find 52 Buddha statues placed in different postures featuring classical styles of Thailand. Enjoy a stroll on the lawns after you have paid homage to the Buddha statue.
After the city tour, the group is set to enjoy Indian lunch at Utsav restaurant after which they head back to the hotel to pack their bags for their flight back home.
