Things To Do In Bangkok/Thailand (Part 1)

This entry is dedicated to Janggel and those visiting Bangkok/Thailand soon or near future. 

At first, I wanted to share only what I do or normally go to in Bangkok but when I rethink, neh..... just load whatever and wherever I have covered in Thailand that can help Janggel or travelholic out there. Might as well, huh!

Just to set the expectation right, there are STILL plenty of places and things that I wanted to see and do but have yet to cover, WHY? Because, I suppose at every trip to Bangkok, Chiang Mai or any other part I set foot, it was limited days traveling. The longest was close to 1 week. Hemmm.... next time I'll try a 10 days Thailand trip pulak kan.

Accommodation 
I guess, first of all; you'll need to know what you want and like to do then only find a hotel located within that vicinity to ensure minimal dollars spend on transportation.

I actually have no favourite place, I actually change hotel at every visit. Yes, HOTEL; half my trip was under company. The one I traveled on my own, I still stayed at hotel because I took Air Asia Go Holiday. Don't get me wrong, there are cheap/reasonable hotel out there. It's individual preference mah... However, the below is where my sis researched and stayed before (Lub d).

Bangkok
Siam Square Area (recommended-visual above) : Lub d Hostel
Phaya Thai / Chatuchak : Udee Hostel

Chiang Mai 
Anusarn Area : Small Hotel
My recommendation is to stay near Anusarn Night Market area as it is much more convenient (Never stayed in any hostel in Chiang May before this). 

There's also few Muslim restaurant there and open air foot massage service for those tired shopaholics.

Environ
Ayuthayya : Baan Lotus
Sukhothai : Lotus Village

If you noticed that, we tend to choose slightly fancy hostel, seriously; just because we travel cheap, doesn't mean our hostel need to look boring right...? *wink*

Sightseeing, things to do in Chiang Mai, Bangkok and environ
What I will be sharing is what I have experience and plan to do here, there are more options for everyone to choose from, the list is bottomless.

Bangkok

Chiang Mai 



Environ

That's about it so far, I will blog about the rest once am done with Osaka/Kyoto. I haven't even blog about Perth, Shanghai, Orlando, Vietnam... etc etc... goodness gracious. Insyaallah soon.

Next will also be where and what I plan to cover in Bangkok/Thailand.
