amazing thailand

updating… updating… updating…

hehehe! its been a long week of not updating my blog and visiting yours. so what ive been doing for the past days? traveling!!! from coron to bulacan down to compostela valley in mindanao then to bangkok in thailand.

whew! seems very cool but its not… traveling in a straight week is very tiring. trust me. esp if its about work. but after doing ur work have some fun, too.

and dats what we did in our trip to bangkok! fun fun fun…

amazing thailand

we went to thailand with a shoestring budget, and thank God we survived. hehe. we have paid our roundtrip ticket for 3k plus only but got shocked with the travel tax of 1620 + terminal fee of 750. nevertheless we have no choice but to still push through wd our trip.

gee travel tax?!

we arrived at bangkok almost 12midnyt and wer able to checked in at Lub D Hostel, Silom 2am. d place was so cozy and really has a nice ambiance. and wats the  good thing about it? it is cheap or has reasonable price plus a free wifi hehe. for two nyts we only paid 605baht. not bad ya?

on our frst day we decided to visit the temples w/o package tours. yes we did it our way…  we took a canal boat and paid 200 baht each to tour the temples. so our first stop the TEMPLE OF DAWN.

40baht per shot? oh my!!!

inside the temple

after this we headed towards the market near the grand palace and had our lunch. we tried their street food and whatever thai cuisine. and we enjoyed it.

colorful street foods

after lunch we had a walk around d place and wer able to buy some cheap stuffs like earings, ref magnet etc… so wyl waiting for the temples to open a tuktuk driver offered us to tour around d place so we did and paid him 30baht.

tuktuk ride

he brought us to a temple with a big sculpture of buddha. we really dont know exactly d neym of the place but we still took some pics… hehe

after this the driver took us to a jewelry shop where you can see different kinds of stones and and jewelries of different prices depending on the design and quality. so we just ended up buying some souvenirs in their souvenir shop and of course a pictorial to the place.

just resting... hehe

then d driver took us back already to wer he picked us. this tym the temples are already open but we chose only one from the many palaces since we dont have enough money anymore. entrance fees to their temples are very expensive. so we picked the WAT PO TEMPLE or the place wer you can see the famous reclining buddha and this is wer d frst university in bngkok located wer u can also learn d thai massage.

shhh... the buddha is resting hehe

i belong... hehe

more temples...

at nyt, me together wd my offcemates/friends had a chance to meet lensky (eyeball ito hehe).  and in fairness, this blogger friend of mine is very beautiful. i admire her in pics but i even more admire her in person. so better meet her in case u wl have a trip to bkk hehe. she took us to a nyt market and had an authentic thai food for dinner. again, thanks lensky for that. hope to see you here, soon.

frst day is such a long day… hehe…

for the second day we went to the floating market. and as usual we just tour the place and didnt buy a thing except for snacks. hehe the FLOATING MARKET is just a more or less 1km long stretch where u can buy goodies in a floating store. we didnt much enjoy d place since its full of tourist nvrtheless its still an experience worth keeping.

selling on board

from d floating market we went straight to the end of the river wer the famous cobra show can be seen. again, we dont have enough money so we didnt watch it. we just stayed outside and took pics. hehe

cobra stature

then going back to bangkok we passed by a furniture shop. and i was amazed how intricate the designs of the furnitures. indeed, an artful work. hehe

intricate...

wers d other monkey?

in d afternoon we shopped at PRATUNAM wer u can buy very cheap clothes. and in d evening after having our dinner at d hostel we already went straight to the SUVARNABHUMI TERMINAL because we have a plane to catch up. bangkok airport is really nice dats y we took advantage of d place… hehe

i want ur DQ... hehe

der u have it guys. leaving you wd some tips if ur planning to go to bangkok:

1. Always bring a map coz it really helps.

2. Better tour the place on ur own coz its relatively cheaper than gettng package tours.

3. Beware of taxi or tuktuk drivers offering ride to discount jewelry stores. you may risk buying fake goods. firmly decline their offers.

4. Bring at least 10k if u really want to tour the place and enjoy shopping.

5. and be respectful of other culture at all times.
