Places To Go in Bangkok
Yey, our Bangkok trip this November is finally confirmed. We have been trimmed to two though since my other friend (ehem) had cancelled because of some personal matters. Anyway, our initial plan was to go to Hong Kong but since we're on a budget, Bangkok is now our destination.

We have booked to Tiger Airways, thanks for the air fare sale! We just need to book for the hotel but before that we need to know which tourist spots to go to. I am always inclined in choosing a hotel in Chinatown so the last minute shopping problem wouldn't be a problem. I don't know though is my 300 SGD planned pocket money would be sufficient.

Anyway, last night I did my research on which places to go in Bangkok. Here are some of it:

1. Grand Palace & Wat Prakeaw, 200 baht
Opens daily from 8:30-3:50 PM
Location: Na Phra Lan Road, Old City (Rattanakosin), 9-10 mins from Chinatown
Notes: No slippers, shorts and sleeveless attire

2. Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Opens daily from 7:00-11:00 AM
Location: Samut Sangkhram Ratchaburi province, 9 mins from Chinatown

3. Wat Pho (Reclining Buddha)
Opens daily from 8:00-5:00 PM
Location: Maharat Road, Old City, 8 mins from Chinatown
Notes: Thai massage for 200 baht per hour until 6 PM

4. Wat Traimit (The Temple of the Golden Buddha)
Opens daily from 9:00-5:00 PM, 9 mins from Chinatown
Location: Traimit Rd., Chinatown

5. Wat Mangkon Kamalawat (Buddhist Temple)
Opens daily from 9:00-5:00 PM, 7 mins from Chinatown
Location: Charoenkrung Road, Chinatown

More to come!
