And I Went to BKK AGAIN!!

After a very enjoyable trip to BKK with the cell last year, I once again travelled to the land of smiles… this time with a few of my most precious friends.

I remember very vividly my resolve to stay in Novotel Platinum during my next visit… and I MADE IT HAPPEN!! MUAHAHAHA.. & I must say it was a very good choice indeed!

The room is spacious.. lobby and concierge cleverly separated into 2 levels… great service from staff, affordable room service and superb location (Mcdonalds and Starbucks are just downstairs, connected to Platinum Fashion Mall at level 5 and 3 mins walk from Central World Mall). The price is also reasonable for it’s rating and location!

As recommended by Huimin, Liz and Fel, our first meal there was from Au Bon Pain and I had smoked salmon bagel… YUMMY!!

And then the shopping BEGUN!! I spent all my money at the end of the 2nd day (most of my shopping done at Platinum and Chatuchak).. not to forget my regular dose of Thai milk tea..

My most memorable meal got to be the Wanton mee at Chatuchak (2 Sol 40)..

Isaiah had 3 bowls!

The other thing that really left an impression was the tour to Mae Klong Railway market and Dan Floating market (which Kless got from Deal.com for $26/pax, includes transport from hotel and back)

We overheard a tour guide saying that the train would be arriving at 945am… and we were all in disbelief as we thought that it was an abandoned railway station… and how’s the stall owners supposed to pack all their goods and make way for the train?!?!? BUT it is true.. the train did come and I managed to take a video of the process….

The floating market was my fav I must say!

The last thing that really stuck… was the GREEN TEA FRESH CREAM CAKE from Coffee Beans by Dao… I love love love love love it!!

And I also had A&W waffles, root bear float and curly fries for the last meal at BKK.. what a wonderful way to end an already awesome trip!!
