Memories of Bangkok
Hmm. What can I say about Bangkok, Ive been there 4times already but I just can't get enough. Something about the city, your there but once you leave you yearn to go back.
I would recommend 3 hotels which Ive stayed in the past 3 trips of mine.
Ambassador hotel on Sukhmvit Soi 11, Grand President just next to Ambassador has service apartment styled rooms. Opt for the tower 1 n tower 2 rooms, tower 3 is sad. Even Royal Benja on Sukhmvit Soi 5 is good. If your a shoping maniac like moi, I would suggest you to stay in the sukhmvit area as against the silom area.Bangkok has many happening night clubs as well. But these days they have a time restriction due to new government rules everything shuts by 2am. One night me and my friends set out to find a nightclub really late. We went to the most happening places, like ministry of sound,hollywood, NASA but everything was shut by the time we reached. So if you wanna pardy guys start real early.
I also visited all the temple, the temple of the reclining buddha and the golden buddha. Don't even think of travelling there in May in April itself the tempratures were 40 degrees etc. There is loads to see, I don't know if i can recommend the dinner cruise since I bunked that and went shopping but others said it was OK..Thats all the sight seeing that was included in my tour. Although, we were also taken to pattaya....Now thats for the Pattaya travel page..SO if you wanna know what all is happening in Pattaya read on.
For shopping I would recommend MBK, everything under one roof. Also if your looking for branded stuff just go to Central Deparment Store at Chitlom. Its really good. I picked up some great shades from there. I also recommend the Emporium. For budget shopping I would recommend Tesco Lotus which is at the ON nut station last station at the sukhmvit line of the BTS line. ie. The skytrain, dont even bother travelling in any other mode, I think this mode is the most sensible one to take and for all of you guys who are goin after 3 months , i hear bangkok has got its own brand new metro, so where BTS wont reach you can opt for the Metro.
I also went to chatuchak market but sadly didnt find anythng which I would like. I bought a few pairs of socks, a skull cap etc. BUt i found it was mostly for travellers who liked to dress grunge n in combat gear since am more of the MNG and Morgan kinda gal, I felt lost at Chatuchak market, Id recommend it for a trourist spot actually something new you could see where open markets are concerened. But believe no matter how much you shop you will always come back and feel huh! this is all that i got..................?????????????
