When I met Bangkok for the very first time October last year (click HERE), I wish and pray hardly that I could able to go there again and yes, my wish was granted whereby my family and I did visit Bangkok for this year Chinese New Year holiday.
My dad almost signed up with tour company that cost almost RM3,000 per pax and luckily I managed to stop him from doing so. Imagine with that amount of money, I could travel and shop like crazy in Bangkok twice. So ended up, and once again I in charge of becoming the tour planner as well as as their so called "tour guide"; from booking the airtickets, reserve hotel rooms to arrange tour for 10 people.
#1: We flew with Royal Brunei and transit in Brunei
It's been so long I never flew with this airline as I used to travel with them like almost every week when I was kid, according to my parents.
#2: We were so surprised when our deluxe room being upgraded to Presidential Suite but only for first night.
Since I went Bangkok before but for my family members, this was their first visit, some places I went for second time, which I think worth and highly recommended for their eye opening.
#3: Terminal 21 - Good shopping place with unique concept
#4: Damneon Sadouk Floating Market
#5: Finally got to find the famous coconut ice-cream stall in Chatuchak Weekend Market
Whereas some I came across for the very first time such as:
#6: Wat Pho - Temple of Reclining Buddha via Chao Phraya Tourist Boat
#7: Stopby Chinatown for Chinese cuisines
#8: 4 hours long roadtrip just to get closer with these tamed tigers in Tiger Temple Kanchanaburi Seriously a #butthurt case
Not just Bangkok that we went, due to our 9 hours transit in Brunei while waiting back to KK, we're heading down to Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital city of Brunei for huge and scrumptious sushi at Escapade, the best Japanese restaurant in Brunei which highly recommended by most of my friends and family.
#10: My shopping haul: 4 dresses, 12 tops, 2 shorts, 7 skirts, 4 bags & accessories
Talking about shopping, I can't deny that Bangkok is my favourite place to shop compare to my experience in Shenzhen, Jakarta, Bandung, Seoul and other cities I went before. Definitely for sure, I will go Bangkok again for third time. I think Bangkok has put spell on me, gosh!
