Bangkok: June 2009

Day 1: Arrival

I arrived in Bangkok’s Suvaranabhumi International Airport after my 1hr 20min Singapore Airlines flight from Singapore. It was 9 am (Bangkok time) and I must say that I am impressed with Bangkok’s airport. Based on reviews I heard about it, I guess many people had wronged the airport. Later on, I discovered that there was another airport. I guess the reviews were referring to that other airport. Anyway, after I went through the customs, I headed on to the taxi stand so that I can go directly to our hotel. While talking to the airport staff at the taxi stand, I found out that they were having a promotion on tours around the city. Therefore, the next day was reserved for the tours that I booked for an affordable price.

The taxi driver was trying his best to communicate with me in English and he even gave me a ‘Welcome to Bangkok’ tour. The Thai people were very friendly and made us feel right at home. I finally arrived at our hotel. I rested and then walked to a nearby mall where I had my lunch and started to shop. I also bought a lot of food from there.

Day 2: Bangkok Tour

I signed up for two tours: the canal tour and the temple tour. My guide picked me up from my hotel at 07 30 in the hotel lobby. Then, we went to a boat and we started our canal tour. There are a lot of temples!! Anyway, after the canal tour, we headed back to the car where my guide took me to a lot of temples including the one with the huge reclining buddha!! AFter that, we went back to my hotel and I rested. AFter that, I esplored the city and had a Thai massahe.

DAy 3: Exploration

I explored the city by taking public transportation and I am VERY impressed with Bangkok's rail system. I went to a lot of shopping malls and had my authentic Thai lunch in one of the restaurants. I ended the day with both hand filled with shopping bags.

Day 4: Goodbye Bangkok

I took the first flight back to SG.
