Tim, Mimi and I were having lunch at YoSushi and were discussing Bangkok and that’s when we realised we 3 should travel there. So Tim took out his mobile phone and booked our flights with Etihad Airlines and Mimi took out her phone and booked our hostel stay. We stayed at a hostel called Once Again Hostel. Hell Yeah! it was so random.
We decided to travel during the Eid Al Adha holiday since it was 5 days off which included the weekend. We took a day off from work and spent 6 days in Bangkok together mostly going for massages.
We arrived in Bangkok in the evening, checked in our hostel and visited Khao San Road had dinner and of course massage.
We booked our tour with the hostel and went on a 2 hours drive to the Floating Market called Damnoen Saduak. That is where we all tried the coconut ice cream for the first time and it was HEAVEN. As we headed back to Bangkok we went for a Temple Tour around the city and visited the famous temples below.
Wat Phra Kaew
Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha)
At night, we visited Rot Fai Market.
Day 3: SHOPPING DAY
We visited the Art Museum, Terminal 21, MBK Mall, Siam Discovery and the Cat Cafe. We also had dinner at a restaurant called the Condom Restaurant which promotes safe sex.
We went to the Creative District and visited Warehouse 30 and they sell the most amazing vintage and quirky items and had the best CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM EVER. They served only chocolate ice cream but different levels of chocolate. We later went to River City to check out the galleries. We took a boat to cross the river and ended up having Pad Thai at a local street food restaurant. As it got darker, the rain poured like crazy so we went to 2 malls Siam Paragon and Central World. The rain got worse so we decided to go to the cinema and watch Crazy Rich Asians.
We booked a full day tour with the hostel and we visited Kanchanaburi Province. Over there, we went to Erawan National Park and Waterfalls. We also went for Water Rafting and Elephant Ride. Our tour guide dropped us to Khao San Road where we went there for GUESS WHAT??? YESS!!! A MASSAGE!!!
Day 6: Farewell Bangkok
We packed our bags and headed to the airport and flew back to Abu Dhabi. We were really sad the trip was over.
Sometimes, a last minute trip is really worth it.
