MEET THAILAND- 22 PHOTOS TO INSPIRE YOUR NEXT BANGKOK ADVENTURES

I spent three days traveling around Bangkok. In fact, this is my first travel overseas. More than a couple have already asked me on how I did it. I did a research beforehand to maximise my time and to avoid overspending. So I’m sharing with you mine.

TEMPLE SCENES

After having enough rest from my 3-hour flight, I took a boat ride going to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun.
The temples are very elaborative.

Just around the corner from the Grand Palace is also Wat Pho, or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha.

From the riverbank near Wat Pho, I took a ferry across to the other side, where I marvelled at Wat Arun, or the Temple of Dawn.

KHAO SAN ROAD SCENES

I also visited the Khao San Road that night by riding a tuk-tuk from my hostel.

SKY BAR SCENES

I went to Lebua Sky Bar to see the skyline of Bangkok. It’s the world’s highest open-air bar on the 64th floor located in Bangrak business district which is a walking distance from my hostel. This sky bar was featured in Hangover 2 so I just had to see it for myself.

DAY 2

18 PHOTOS OF THE SEX CAPITAL OF THAILAND

8:30 – 9:30– Breakfast
9:30 – 12:00– Chatuchak Market
12:00 – 13:00– Going back to Hostel / Lunch
14:00 – 17:40– Going to Pattaya
17:40 – 20:00– Big Buddha Hill– View Point Pattaya / Coffee Break
20:00- 23:00– Dinner at Walking Street

CHATUCHAK MARKET SCENES

I visited Chatuchak Market the next day.
I used their Skytrain (BTS) to Mo Chit Station, then took the exit no.1 and followed the crowd until I saw some stalls.
I like going to the markets to experience the busyness of the city but I only had 2 hours to visit this place because I’m not much of a shopper.
The sheer size and diverse collections of merchandise in Chatuchak Market has brought me to my knees. This is literally shop til you drop! On weekends, thousands come here to sift through the goods on sale.

DAY 3

6:30 –8:30– Morning Swim &  Breakfast
8:30–12:30– Coral Island / Lunch
12:30–14:00– Elephant Village
14:00 –17:30– Going back to Bangkok
18:00– 20:00– Central World Mall / Dinner
20:00- 21:00– Red District
21:00- 21:30– Going back to Hostel

CENTRAL MALL SCENES

Malls in Bkk are more than just malls – they are social hubs! A lot of life in the city happens in the malls so I just had to visit one.
I opted to choose Central World which is the largest shopping destination lifestyle in Bangkok. It’s near from where we were dropped off from our Pattaya trip.

Ahhh! Thailand is in indeed the travel hub of Southeast Asia. A place I will  return to and a heaven for budget backpackers. This is my actual itinerary which was really different from my vision of still going to the floating market, visit Baioke, MBK mall, etc but I’m still glad that I was able to get a glimpse of this bustling city. My DIY tour has been over and I couldn’t believe it was that fast!  There are still lots of things to do and see in Thailand. That’s why I’m definitely coming back!
