Bangkok, Thailand 2012 (Sneak Peek)

Bangkok, Thailand 01
Sawatdee Kaa สวัสดี one more time again! (Just love to take photo with Ronald everytime visit Thailand)

Early of this year, I went Phuket with my girlfriends for an island getaway and this time around, I went Bangkok with one of my closest friend which I met during my study time in United Kingdom just solely for a shopping trip only. Just back from Melbourne, Australia for less than 10 days, I was flying off to "Land of Smiles" with the return airfare that I bought for just 20 cents (but after added up all the admission fee, fuel and airport tax, total return ticket cost RM147.20).

I did a bit of sightseeing besides wholly focus on shopping such as:

Bangkok, Thailand 02
Went across the famous Chao Phraya River and visited one of the notable Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha)

Bangkok, Thailand 03
And also Grand Palace which was once official residence of the Kings of Siam.

Bangkok, Thailand 04
Experienced the floating market, which one of the things you should do when in Bangkok.

Throughout my 5 days in Bangkok, my friend and I went almost all the popular and recommended shopping mall/center such as:
Bangkok, Thailand 05
Clockwise from left: Platinum Fashion Mall; Central World; MBK Center and Siam Paragon.

Bangkok, Thailand 06
And also Chatuchak Market - one of the world's largest weekend markets. 

Bangkok, Thailand 07
If you dislike shopping but love phototaking, then you should visit Terminal 21 which is a shopping complex but has different world-famous cities concept at different floor such as London, Tokyo, Istanbul, San Fransisco and more. This place is highly recommended if you love phototaking.

Last but not least, both of us totally couldn't resist ourself from keep shopping, shopping and shopping. We're definitely shopped everything from head to toe cause it is more cheaper and fashionable to shop in Bangkok than in China and also Bandung, Indonesia.

I Love Bangkok
Bangkok is definitely one of the city that I love to go back again.

So, Bangkok concluded as my final trip for this year with my friends (after Phuket, Brunei, Philippines, Vietnam, Bali, Hong Kong, Macau, Australia). Currently, I'm feeling a lil bit exhausted due to extensive travel since 17 September till 21/22 October 2012 by taking 10 flights and visited 4 different cities/countries within that period. Therefore from now onwards, I'm gonna hibernate from travelling for almost half a year before continue for my next travel adventures. Till then, do check out all my previous outdated travelogue.

  4. I don't believe in happy endings, but I do believe in happy travels, because ultimately, you die at a very young age, or you live long enough to watch your friends die. It's a mean thing, life.Flights to Manila

  13. Oh my goodness! What a year you had.

    I went to Chatuchak market and was very much inspired by it. You can basically find anything there. It's like the grand scale version of pasar malam.

  16. I have covered much of Thailand, from Chonburi, Bangkok, Ayuttaya, Phuket, Krabi and Patong. Bangkok has much to offer and I spend 4 days alone in Bangkok. It was a great experience, forget about the shopping but the food is heavenly.
