BANGKOK QUICK TRIP
It tooks 1 hour more or less from airport to the hotel.. , we hit Grand watergate hotel at 12pm so we cant enter our luggage yet to our room, but we change our outfit and put our lugagge in the lobby. We directly go out and walked around the hotel. Its like bring the memories back,, since this is my 2nd trip to Bangkok., and we stay in the hotel around pratunam also like what we did sometimes ago. I lovedddd everything in here!! The local people are so warm and friendly.
Always ready for Hat, Glasses, comfortable shoes or sandals and UV Lotions to prevent the hot sunny day…
We’re get familiar with the area then get back to the hotel for a quick napping and go for nite walked to MBK (Mall of Bangkok) at 7pm. We went there by tuk tuk for around 100Bath.
Quick tips :
~ few tuk tuk have 3 seats and others for 4 seats
~ says a clear destination and go ahead make some bargain over the price
~ the driver will offering you to stop by in few destinations (boutique, factory outlet, temple,etc) first before arriving in exactly destination. Just say NO if you want straight destination, or say “sorry no, we’re starving, no time just straight to (mention where we want to go)” , and last dont forget to say “Thank You (and smile)”. This works!!
~ mind your belongings, as you going to sit tight with one and another while enjoying the road just keep your belonging near to your chest!! Because if you put your bag beside you or even in your back, somebody will stole easily…
~ last but not least,, HAVE A SAFE SELFIE!!
sour and tasty ^^Phad Thai
We have try the street vendor beverage such as Ice Thai tea and Chocolate ice!!, wowWwwww!! Its damm good ^^ its worth the price ,only 25Bath ( around Rp13.000). They just know how to make such lovely quality of beverage even thou in street!
We’re arrived in MBK,, walked around…
And end up with trying the MCD here lol,, we found few menu that not able in Jakarta, such as Pineapple Pie, Fillet O Fish Burger, ……….. … tasted YummY!!!
After that we enjoyed our nite walked on oir way to hotel…
After that, we decided to have a walked to the hotel and enjoy night athmosphere. But in the middle walked out, we found some interesting street vendor ,,it just soooo Thailand Style! So we stopped and ate our dinner there… it cost us around 420 Bt.
24rd May 2015, Sunday
10am we go to chattuchak,,
We go by Taxi and cost around 120bath, it better to raise the price rather than to stop for few destinations, thats what we learned somehow. I can say Thailand have a good Cab, also few of them decored the interior.
I really missed this place…
Nothing much change …
Still crowded as ever and lovely must place to visit and SPENT! ♡♡
~ Prepare few bottles of water or if u run out of it, buy few in chatuchak but wiped up first with tissue. Dont forget to always make yourself drink water every few hours, because you wont notice if you are having dehidration. The weather is soo HOT!
~ Use you UV sun protections, whether you’re man or woman. Use in your face and all over your skin.
~ Get ready of your Fancy Hat lol.
~ Black Glasses is helping, because the sun is so shinning it can make your eyes hurt if you dont wear one.
~ Protect your bag !! It will be a good idea if you have a lock key for your bag to prevent everything harmfull among the crowd.
As i have posted few pictures in chatuchak sometimes ago, so there are not much to posting about this. We spent more half of the day in here!! Every food and beverages on the street vendor are cheap and delicious^^ ,, for garlic bread it cost 6Bth, for petite stick ice cream cost only 5bth., kebab only 20bath (similiar like Rp 10.000). This time, because its with brother trip so we really spent the whole time here, which really nice! I lobed this weekend market ♡♡♡ ,, they not just sell fashion items, but also there are few local entertainer such people who play traditional instruments, etc.. if we liked, while seing them , we could give them few Baths.
So Far,,, we walked and walked from 12pm to 7pm in this place!! Hahaha..
TUK TUK BEHAVIOUR:
And again… when we ride a cab,, the driver offering and try to persuade us to stop in few destinations before arriving in our exactly destination, well it was because the driver already make a deal to few tourism spot,, if they could bring guest they will have bonus.
Quick tips: Say direct about your destination and repeating few times, say it clearly ‘not too fast, because they need to understand what we say. Somehow try to say “NO MONEY SORRY”, only have money to (mention our exactly destination), we’re tired. This way,,Works for me!! ^^

8.45am straight we went for a quick breakfast near hotel because we like to discovered the Grand Palace!!
QUICK TIPS :
~ Mind what you wearing, because its such a spiritual tourist object. Anything should be covered for ladies unless hair, Dont wear LEGGING!!. For Men should wearing long pant and proper shirt.
~ Near to the gate of Grand Palace, there will be a few small stores that sell some fashion items and also offer you renting fashion items like long pants, topwear, etc. From what i’ve seen, they will charge you 30bth for pants,etc. They have it many colors! BUT if you already wear short pants, tanktop,etc that not required you to get entered to the palace, the security in front of the gate will ask you to go to some office near to it, well voilaaa!!me wearing legging at that time, and they asked me to make a line there before entering. FACT i just knew, you will have to give them deposit 200bth (similiar to Rp 90.000) and they borrow me some cute purple fabrics to covered my legging for FREE!!!!! LOL. So its your choice guys,, to rent outside the palace or free borrow inside the gate of Grand Palace.
~ Be mind to your belongings!
~ Wear your UV sun protection, Black glasses and a Hat or umbrella.
~ Please make your self aware to every SIGN or instruction there and try to obey.
~ Wear comfortable shoes or sandals
Its a huge Palace and there are few museum and a prayer place that makes Video and Photo are forbidden.The museum will show you traditional weapon like long handle knife, long hook, the lance, air gun riffle,etc. I just got amazed with how they take care and maintain very carefully of every detailed, they got dozen of people coming in, yet this place are still beautiful, the Garden and flowers, everything looks perfect in a shaped.
For noted, they always have security inside each of places, that make sure, we obey the rules. Because i saw with my own eyes, there is a security who ask some tourist to put off her Hat inside the prayer room.
At 2pm, we went to wat pham,, 100bth for the ticket include bottle of water that you can have it at the end of exit door, for me this is such a lovely offer and good example that can applied in every tourist object even in Jakarta!
