Hello from Bangkok! ;)
Touched down around 2pm & hailed a cab; cost us a flat rate of 700 Baht.
Taxi uncle had loads of foreign currency so we gave him a Singapore $2 to add to it!
It's not a well.. pretty sight, but it's interesting!
Day 1 #OOTD lol.
Took a tuk-tuk & it was *cough* my idea.
I mean obviously I've been on tuk-tuks before lah, I just thought it would be fun!
But the crazy wind & car exhaust is just :S
And it cost the same as a taxi ride -_-"
Headed to Asiatique based on the reception's recommendations & it's great!
It's like an... atas night market? LOL.
Suan Lum is no longer around by the way.
Asiatique closes at midnight & it's huge!
LOADS of food places & it's very nicely decorated!
Prices are a bit steeper though, but the things are more unique & of a good quality.
It's sorta like... Haji Lane I guess haha.
Oh shit didn't realize I took so many of myself lololol.
Pineapple fried rice, fried chicken & crab meat!
Most of the stores are this nicely decorated!
And a lot are enclosed like this so there's air-con.
I didn't shop much because I found it a bit expensive for girls' clothes (compared to usual Bangkok standard) but they have some cool accessories. For guys the shopping is pretty good! Of Singapore's quality but at half the price! They could easily get nice & unique shirts for S$20.
Both wearing new tshirts they just bought!
Lots of food!
They have the more atas enclosed restaurants too.
Not at all like a conventional "market".
I like the custard one :)
Shopping haul from Day 1 & 2!
(didn't take many photos on Day 2)
This is actually quite little by Bangkok standards haha but we didn't get to shop that much so far!
Ok I need to rush out!
Gonna help Yutaki take photos for his next photo book & then hopefully we still have time for Chatuchak after! Found an abandoned railway near our place.
And we ordered McDonald's! Delivery here is 30 Baht, which is like S$1? Lol.
Total order came up to only S$10+!
