A Journey to Thailand!
Our very first time of visiting Bangkok had surprisingly brought a lot of fun to us. This is a family trip where we planned our own without joining the tour group! We just looked for the local driver and make the booking online. So we really put lots of effort in searching those places. We really had so much fun and it seemed that spending 5 days 4 nights were ain't enough for us. So now, let the journey begins!
Day 1 (12th Dec 2014):
We're taking evening flight and we arrived Bangkok quite late at night. But this city and the street seems like never fall to sleep so "early" where the street was still so crowd at the 10pm. Just a short distance away from the hotel we stayed, Centre Point Hotel Pratunam, there were lots of stalls selling foods along the street.
Look at these! Trust me, it tastes so much better than it looks! For me, the bbq salted fish is the best (Top left). I'm not really a big fan of tomyam, but I really like it as it tastes not that spicy (Top right).
And now, finally I understand why some people said that food tastes better if you cook it by using charcoal.
*End of Day 1*
Day 2 (13th Dec 2014):
It's a brand new day for us! Now, let's heading to our first location of the day, the Maeklong Station!
The inner view of the Maeklong Station! See how narrow is the lane!
The scene at the end of the train market.
There's a mini coffee house available beside the train station for rest.
Here comes the next stop, the Dumnoen Saduak Floating Market! Haha, it becomes a really great experience for me as I never been to a floating market before!!!
All houses and shops are made by wood & they can sell anything by the river.
The next stop for us is also the floating market, but according to our driver, the Amphawa Floating Market is preferred by most of the local citizens.
Instead of taking the boat, I found it much more interesting by walking by the river. Definitely, you will find more things to discover.
All of these look like art! They are too pretty and I'm so reluctant to eat! It taste like sticky rice with coconut topping (Hehe, sorry that I really dunno what this called in Thai!).
Wow, see how big are these seafood! The scallops are so juicy!!!
Here's the final stop of the day, Chocolate Ville! My family and I have been looking forward to this place for so long!
Welcome to Chocolate Ville!
Hohoho! Merry Christmas! We're lucky enough as we arrived this place 2 weeks before Christmas! Look at this place, the lighting really mesmerized me!
Look at these buildings and design, you will feel yourself being in Europe!
Dinner by the lakeside!
PS: If you wish to have your dinner here, it's better for you to go there and make the reservation earlier especially during the peak season (Christmas is just around the corner). We have waited 30 mins because this place really full of people, but after all it's really worth for us to wait!
Thumbs up for the pork ribs (Top left), salad (Middle), thai tomyum pasta (Bottom left), and the banana crepe (Bottom right)!
*End of Day 2*
Day 3 (16th Dec 2014):
For our last day in Bangkok, we just went for a free & easy shopping. We also tried their famous pork rice & mee wantan. Here's the only shop in Bangkok & there's no branch at other place in Thailand! *Sorry that I seriously can't remember the name of the place.*
We queued up so long for this!
