First and foremost, Happy Deepavali and Happy Holidays!
I think I owe you guys this post. Sorry for taking so long. Lazy mah. I promise you this will be the last LONG post I’m gonna write in quite sometime. Like previous Day 3 post, please look at the pictures if you’re lazy to read.
Day 4 – 26th September 2006 (Tuesday):
Last day in Bangkok. After our brekkie, we traveled by Skytrain from Asok to Saphan Taksin station. Hehe we’re going for a boat ride along the Chao Phraya River!!! Sathorn Pier is just a short walk (about 200m) from Saphan Taksin station. We decided to get on the Chao Phraya Tourist Boat. At 100Baht per person, the price includes a One Day River Pass for unlimited rides (for 1 day), Chao Phraya Travel Guidebook and drinking water. There is also a tour guide on board to enlighten us during the ride. The tour boat operating hours are from 9.30am to 3pm and provide service to 9 designated piers.
Day 3 – 25th September 2006 (Monday):
BEWARE: Record breaking looooooong post. Just view the pictures if you’re lazy to read.
We woke up early on day 3 as we are going to Pak Khlong Talad aka Flower Market. We left the hostel quite late actually… about 6.30am and traveled by Metro (subway) from Sukhumvit to Hua Lamphong. One thing good about our hostel is that it is in close proximity to Skytrain (Asok) and Metro (Sukhumvit) interchange.
Hua Lamphong MRT station is connected to Hua Lamphong Railway Station, one of Bangkok’s main railway stations. Its architecture reminds me of Tanjong Pagar Railway Station in Singapore.
Day 2 – 24th September 2006 (Sunday):
Day 2 is shopping day!!! I had to put this day as shopping day because Chatuchak only opens on the weekend.
BEWARE extremely long post ahead.
Italian coffee and restaurant where we had our breakfast.
9 months ago 7 of us booked a flight to Bangkok during the Air Asia free tickets promotion. Ahh and last week the wait was finally over and now it is history. Only 5 of us could make it to Bangkok consisting of my sis’ colleague, ex-colleagues and friends. 2 more friends join in with us as their flight is only 2 hours earlier. Together 7 of us embarks on a journey of shopping extravaganza, hunting down temples, meeting friendly Thais and uhhh 1 unfriendly one, savouring Thailand’s mouth watering dishes and cruising on the beautiful Chao Phraya River. Yes Bangkok is indeed City of Angels.
Please enjoy my Bangkok trip reviews. :0
Hello, I’m back! This time REALLY for good.
I’ve just came back from Bangkok 2 days ago. Weeeee it’s indeed a memorable journey to remember with the occasion sore feet and plenty of dramas!!
Remember I was quite worry to go to Bangkok since the coup happened less than a week I was scheduled to leave? My worry all went away the moment I stepped into LCCT because I’m getting 1 step closer to Bangkok.
