And off we went to BKK on 28th December. Most people who heard my holiday destination would question me on the safety of the place.
Well, I am back in one piece now. :) It had been a very safe trip. Didn't sight any groups wearing red/yellow T-shirts and making loud noises. Everyone was just like us... Shopping and eating! That's Bangkok isn't it?!
Even though we stayed there for 3.5 days, it was a really 'just nice' trip. Jared found a 5-star hotel - Pullman Bangkok King Power, that charged a very affordable rate during this season. The 1st 5-star hotel I've ever stayed in! Here are some pictures!
The exterior of our hotel.
Our deluxe hotel room (mid-range room in the hotel).
On the left, there is a couch and coffee table. Everyday, the housekeeping services will leave 4 pieces of designer chocolates on the coffee table there! Everyday different chocolates somemore! Yums!
On the right, you see a sliding door that reveals the big bathroom! They provide different bath salts beside the bathtub everyday... Heavenly...
In Bangkok, I also enjoyed the Tuk Tuk rides. I honestly think they are faster than the other public transport on the roads! But it can be quite a nerve wrecking and polluted experience...
We are behind Mr Tuk Tuk!
And of course, I love the cheap cheap shopping esp shopping for accessories! Jared and I think if we bring the accessories over to Singapore to sell... we will really make SOME $$.
Let me share with you some treasure I found. ALL costing less than $10 per piece! In Singapore, long necklaces costs at least $12 and above (I think @ Diva).
And this deal (below) here is unbelievable... 3 long beaded necklaces for S$4!
And if you look at the beads close up... pretty cute!
And I bought this o-so-cool red sandals... for Val. Just look at it!
How I love shopping... =)
So all in all, BKK was a pretty good trip (except for my food poisoning on the 1st day). Jared and I concluded that Thailand must be one of the best short holiday destinations in SE Asia - for its shopping, beautiful and fun beaches, massages (this one is for Jared), food etc all at low prices!
We will be back!
