Summary of My 5D4N Bangkok, Thailand Travelogue (2012) Version 1.0

Here is the compilation for all the post relating to my trip to Bangkok, Thailand for 5 days and 4 nights.

Day 1: 17th October 2012
Tip For Taking Taxi from Don Mueang International Airport to Bangkok Downtown:
And talking about taxi, I would highly recommend to take the one outside the arrival area instead of booking from the taxi service booths in the main hall cause the latter one is freaking expensive. Double the fare cause that's what my friend and I paid initially but somehow, they refunded to us and asked us to wait for other taxi. A trip with the taxi outside the arrival area cost roughly 250-350 baht, depending on the traffic.

Conclusion, I spend 5 solid days in Bangkok itself and didn't go further areas such as Pattaya, Hua Hin, Ayutthaya and etc but I believe, Bangkok, I will be back and see you again someday. Bangkok is one of the cities that I don't mind to go back every year (if only time is permitted and grab another best deal from AirAsia). Oh boy, I guess Bangkok has put spell on me!

      2. Altho it may be cheaper to grab taxis in the streets, I find it safer to get one from airport counters or from hotels. I would rather pay more than to risk hopping into an unsafe taxi. Heard so many cases of tourists getting driven to unknown places & got raped. Better stay safe. ^_^

        Love your shots! I must say your skills are getting better & better, dear.
