Bangkok, Thailand

20230221_135533_0000

We only had three days to spend in Bangkok after our Phuket trip, so we planned the itinerary carefully. On the day of our flight back to BKK from Phuket, our flight was delayed for an hour because of the weather in Bangkok. So we arrived at the airport at around lunch time. By then, we were famished. We had to eat at the airport because it’s still a 30-minute train ride from there to Phaya Thai and 15-minute drive from Phaya Thai to our hotel which was located in Chinatown.

Our hotel was lovely and since it’s located in the heart of the town—just across BTS (Bangkok Transit System)—it was very Chinese-themed. The hallways and the rooms were spacious and clean. I enjoyed making visits at their deck near the swimming pool because it was overlooking the town and of course, we just had to take photos!

On the day of our flight back to Bangkok from Phuket, our flight got delayed for about an hour because it was raining so much in BKK. So we were just at the airport that whole time, good thing that Phuket International Airport is very cozy and you don’t have to walk very far to get some grub. This was also the day that we were going to meet my friend who works in Bangkok! The last time I saw her was on our wedding day, so we really had some catching up to do.

Anyway, we arrived in Bangkok at around 1:30-ish and we were famished, so we had to eat lunch at the airport because we still have to drop our stuff at the hotel before meeting with my friend. We ate at this Chinese restaurant and had my favorite Hainanese chicken rice. Then we were off to the airport train station and arrived at our hotel at around 3 PM. After all that was settled, we booked a grab to bring us to Central Embassy to visit Open House!

Then we met with my friend at Siam Paragon to have early dinner and visit Books Kinokuniya! One of most favorite Asian bookstores that I always look forward to whenever we are travelling because we don’t have this bookstore in the Philippines.

After this we just roamed around Siam Center, visited the Gundam Base in Bangkok, took random photos of city lights and just the surroundings. And we basically just did a lot of catching up.

We parted ways at around midnight because my husband and I were just also really tired from all the travelling in the morning + we also have to get up early the next day for our temple hopping and the temples in this city were huge! We listed about 6 temples to visit, but we were only able to visit three because we were like inside the temples for hours!

  • Wat Arun, The Temple of Dawn
  • Wat Pho, The Temple of the Reclining Buddha
  • The Grand Palace

We had lunch at Tang Heng Kee, a Thai restaurant just across Wat Pho. The food was cheap and delicious! We ordered chicken rice, chicken noodles, and sweet and sour chicken. Ha! I’m not much into pork these days because of my BP.

We also visited MBK Mall to buy pasalubong for my grandpa. I also bought new anklets and bracelets from there! Plus, we were also able to try their pomegranate juice which tastes really good, by the way. And also more mango sticky rice!

On our last night, we finally tried to their street food in Chinatown! I really enjoyed Hainanese Chicken which is honestly my go-to food anywhere. I also tried their street milk tea and it wasn’t so bad! It quite reminded me of the milk tea being sold in our school’s cafeteria back in college. I also took photos of some of Chinatown’s streets!

Our Bangkok trip was actually so bitin! But we had lots of fun. Phuket is still my favorite, but the shops in Bangkok are such budols because most of the items are so cheap!
