Bangkok Day 3 : Asiatique The Riverfront

Day 3 @ 17 June 2013

Asiatique The RiverFront

If you haven't been here is a nice to walk around as the environment is slightly western.

Furthermore, it is very easy to go here by public transport.

Stop at BTS Saphan Taksin, take Exit 2 as per below picture:

Signboards in english
As you walk down the stairs from exit 2, just follow the crowds as most of them will take the Free Shuttle Ferry to Asiatique

Go to Sathorn Pier

Bangkok Day 2 : 1 Hour Foot Massage + Tesco Shopping + Terminal 21

Day 2 @ 16 June 2013

The moment we woke up, our poor leg soar due to the long walking we had the previous day.

We decided to go for a foot massage nearby our place.

Lek Massage House
 From Ibis Siam, our hotel.. Turn right and go all the way down until you see "Lek Massage House" whcih is only 5-6min Walking distance.

The Price is cheap too !!
 The nicest part was, you do not even need to bargain for the price as it is already dirt cheap.
We did our 1 hour foot massage which cost us THB 250 @ RM 25 !!  And if you're interested in doing the Thai Massage :

1 Hour = THB 250 @ RM 25
2 Hour = THB 450 @ RM 45

You can't even get such cheap price in Malaysia ! After enjoying our relaxing 1 hour foot massage, we head to Tesco which is also another 5min walking distance.
Once you come out from "Lek Massage", turn right again and walk all the way down until you reach Tesco !
We just love groceries shopping any country we is just so exciting seeing their local brands in the market !

Choosing what to buy. Too many choices

Jayyden with our trolley

Bangkok Day 1 : Chatuchak Weekend Market

Day 1 @ 15 June 2013

The moment we landed in Don Mueang airport, it was already 12.40pm..
And by the time we reach our hotel; it was nearly 2+pm.
Not to waste anymore time, both of us quickly chuck our luggage bags and zoom straight to Chatuchak Weekend Market which also now known as "JJ Market"

The BTS Ticket Machine to purchase your train ticket

The Amount for each destination

Bought our BTS ticket to JJ market

We waited for our BTS to Mo Chit Station

The BTS is in time and within 10-15min ride, we reach Mo Chit Station to start our shopping in JJ Market. It is famously know by both locals & tourist and it's only open during the weekend from Friday to Sunday. In order not to missed it, do come during the weekends...EARLY in the morning around 10am when the weather is still not so hot.

Bangkok Hotel : Ibis Bangkok Siam

Day 1 @ 15 June 2013

Ibis Bangkok Siam

Ibis Bangkok Siam..... Have you heard of this before? Yes ! There is many Ibis Hotel, but if you want a budget hotel which is strategically located directly in front of "National Stadium BTS", 5 min walking distance to MBK Shopping Center and another 10min walking distance to Siam Paragon...
Then you should really book Ibis Bangkok Siam@ Rama 1, Wangmai, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330, Thailand.

The Front Hotel. Mercure is a slightly high class than Ibis. Yet i rather choose Ibis for the price :P

Not trying to highly promote this hotel, but yet..sharing is caring.. Normally, i used to book at the hostel just beside Ibis Siam, which is Lub D Siam since i want to save time traveling around by BTS..

Lub D siam, the hostel i previously stay is just beside Ibis Siam

But when i got to know that IBIS Siam is newly open end of 2012, that is when i know i should book this hotel when there is still promotion !
We manage to book a "Standard Twin Room with Breakfast" for RM 543 Nett @ 4D3N which consider affordable as we only need to pay RM 267 nett each for our 4D3N stay.

RM 534 nett for 4D3N
