Well since the cool place we stayed in Saladaeng, Bangkok was mentioned previously, I'll be posting the rest of our holiday adventure. A couple of words to sum up our much awaited trip for this year - awesome+enjoyable. There's never a dull moment when it comes to Bangkok.
Nearby our hotel were areas filled with shopping complex, markets, restaurants, entertainment outlets, bars, etc. which is easily accessible via Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS) aka skytrain. Drop the 'tuk-tuks' and taxis if you wanna save time, the traffic's bad during the evenings.
We find that Bangkok’s people are very hospitable, an integral part of Thai culture... I guess. Most things there can be done with a smile and a laugh, especially important if you are a tourist there and don’t speak Thai. Oh yeah, the calculator's an essential tool, if you plan to do some hardcore shopping like
Chilling out in LCCT, filling up before the battle. Got there very early.
Boarded the Manchester United A320 plane & I felt like a champion.
We arrived at the Suvarnabhumi Airport at night, no match for KLIA.
We prepared ourselves for Chatuchak Weekend Market early in the next morning. It's only open during weekends and we were lucky.
To get there, we took the BTS from Saladaeng & stop at Mo Chit station. Using the skytrain's the best and quickest way to get to places in Bangkok. 15THB up to 40THB per trip, depending on zones. Yes, it's air-conditioned!
Freaking huge, with more than 15k stalls inside, it'll take the whole day to walk as you'll find all kinds of stuff ranging from clothings to decos here.
Truly a shopping haven, you can shop till you drop.
Shoes & sandals everywhere... we bought a few pairs back.
And hangbags... this little bag turned itself up to Feebz. Along with a pair of nice shoes, we paid 350 THB. Cheap bargain.
Tons of fashion clothings, and she couldnt stop smiling as we go on. Ladies would love shopping here as the choices are wide & it's CHEAP - if you negotiate well.
Variety of food & drinks sold here. There's a nice crowded noodle chicken shop around which is a must try - I forgot where. We had to drink non-stop to kept ourselves hydrated!
Legs were aching by the time it's late noon, but the battle for shopping still continues. Buggy service's provided for free.
Feebz & Frag! The things on the left arent ours wokay...
And the battle continues, this time we raided some ladies accessories.
We didn't get this. Would be great to hide my face in one of these. Muahaha!
Pic-tar time! It got more humid as we went on.
We saw a possessed 'woman' and a slim Digiman on the street on the way back. Marketing & ads sure is done crazily everywhere.
Traffic's starting to get congested, we took the skytrain back to Saladaeng.
We spent quite some money getting stuff from the market, but it was worth while. It's best to bring a backpack along just in case.
