Hi lovelies,

Im back with a new post about Bangkok Thailand!
I always wanted to check out Yaowarat Bangkok but haven't been able to do so cos I always visit during CNY period which makes it hectic to visit.
So this time was the perfect chance to drop by and check out the hype!
Originally I wanted to go by taxi as it was the most fuss free but my mum told me her colleague went by boat so i decided to give it a try!
From Pratunam, we walked to Siam BTS station then took the train to Sapan Taksin  ( 6 stations) believe it was 38 baht.
We walked towards the port and there was this long queue for the public boats. It was a flat fee for the boat ride ( you could take till the end if you liked)for 15baht.

Ticket to get onto the boat

Alight at the 5th stop! Ratchawong Pier
 Do try to walk to the exit of the boat early at the 4th stop as they do not wait for you to take your time!! The boat ride was quite scenic and fun! From the pier to central Chinatown was around 15mins walk.
Along the main street of Yaowarat

Shop selling goods







We were thirsty and tired by this time and we decided to go for some Bird's Nest to cool off.

Menu! Read many good reviews about it so decided to give it a try!

So many kinds!


Ginseng tea. Supposed to drink after taking the bird's nest as bird nest is 'cooling'

I got a cold version of  3rd Grade Bird Nest in Coconut ( 250 baht)





Mum got a hot version of the same thing
 
 It was really worth the money and the coconut flavour really complimented the bird's nest! I had to say though , the hot version was definitely better tasting than the cold one but the sun was especially  vicious that day. It was also served in the coconut shell that they heated up the bird nest in. The burn flavour of the coconut was really rich and savoury. I like it that they make it on the spot when you order and its not ready made! ( even for the cold ones) I got to say that this bird nest is not watered down and it was full of bird's nest chunks! Super worth it!Recommended!!

After having the cooling desert, we were hungry for some dinner!
We headed down the street for some seafood!
T&K Seafood
It was getting dark outside and there were queues already at 6pm! The lines moved super fast and there were different queues for inner or outdoor seating. We chose to seat indoors. We got seated on the tatami floor and it was a fun experience haha:)


Fish in Lemon and Garlic Sauce ( 350 baht) was really good and delicious. best of all, worth the money!!!!


Oysters at 50 baht each

Tom yum seafood was kinda meh but the seafood was really fresh.
 We ordered some vegetables  too but I didnt get a picture of that haha.
Overall the seafood is here is super good and affordable so do come and give it a try when you drop by Yaowarat!! We really wanted to try Pajin cockles but there were at least 20 people in the queue besides we were really full too haha:) Next time!

Hey guys!

Its been a long time since my last post and its great to be back!
Today I am going to do a review about Klub Hotel which i stayed in last month when I was in Bangkok for a short getaway! 
So I landed at BKK Suvarnabhumi Airport and took a cab at the public taxi stand, at B1 of the airport to the city, the taxi driver was really nice, he helped us load all of our luggage ( 4 people) into the boot (pro af). He also called the hotel and ask about how to get there before we set off! We were really blessed! I was contemplating to call for a Grab but thankfully I did not have to do so!
This is the receipt we got from the taxi stand, they have automated machines according what car type you need! Super efficient and I think Changi needs them!
 We arrived at the hotel around 30 minutes later as we arrived quite early at 10am BKK time so there was not much jams.

Name Card! Just tell regular taxi drivers Petchaburi Soi 13 and they will know! Also around the area, there are many signs!

Hotel Lobby

Opposite some terrace private houses and one of them owns a Porsche :O



Lift Lobby

Our Room!


Complimentary mineral water that you can ask for unlimited refills! Thailand was 39degrees when I was out there so I certainly asked for many bottles! The staff were really nice about it too!

View!

Bathroom





Common Area




We had 2 rooms so the another room looks like this! I prefer this design to be honest but both are equally pretty!


 The staff were really friendly as a small boutique hotel as one of the days, my mum's colleague accidentally fumbled with the locks of the safe and she totally locked the safe without knowing what the password was ( omg total aunty behaviour) we called for staff to help and the general manager was still not at work ( it was 730 in the morning ) and staff invited us for complimentary breakfast while we waited for him to arrive. Such a nice human touch, appreciate it so much!
The staff were super friendly and helpful, it felt really cozy.
The place was really clean and the cleaners were prompt and efficient!
The location was around 10 mins walk away from Glow Pratunam. I feel that it was okay for youngster who don't mind to walk abit to save money but if you are travelling with kids/elderly maybe consider investing to stay somewhere more central? Its not that bad, but sometimes the 10mins walk extra after a whole day of shopping may really hurt!
There are many massage parlors nearby too but nothing beats my favourite hunt near Berkeley Hotel!
Also one thing to note, the WiFi connection was really strong, but nothing loaded inside the room only at the door of my room , then the WiFi was working rather well, so that's a point to note!

hello lovelies,

My goodness me, it has almost been a year since my last post.I been wanting to update this since some time ago but i kept putting it off so here it is.
I visited Bangkok with my mum during August this year for a short getaway after my internship ended.
Got Thai Airlines tickets for $317 all fares included. Flight was pretty ok.

Noodles with chicken that was really good

Prawn cos fish was out of stock. On the whole Thai Airways was a good airlines to fly with but the only thing is that their planes are really parked at the end boarding gates at both Changi/suvarnabhumi. Had to walk a long way to the arrivals as compared to SQ.



For the month of August they had this so me and mum cut the queue! Great~~

To Airport City Rail Link





Pretty simple to get to the City Rail


Took to Phaya Thai at 45 baht.











At Phaya Thai, had to change trains and walk a bit to the BTS, one thing about their train stations, the stairs are really long and the lifts are nowhere in sight,unless you have strength to lug all your luggage, it really sucks

Took till Phaya Thai and switched lines to BTS arrive at Ratchathewi station. Basically, its just a horror with the stairs but otherwise, fairly simple.
From the station, its a 15minute walk. we asked a local girl that was really friendly and she used google maps to point out the way. from the stairway of the BTS station, just walk straight and turn right. see Shibuya 19 from faraway. Probably use Google Maps for this. I had to cross the street with my huge luggage so i just went into the mall and used the escalator instead of lugging the bag down the stairs again
Lounge, the check in was swift and fast, Just presented the booking voucher from Agoda.

One for one pax. Limited to one device also hence if you have alot of devices, alot of passwords. But the connection was good and was able to load youtube videos
Booked the cheapest room we could get at 97/night without breakfast






excuse the bag haha, the room was well furnished and clean:)we reached the hotel at like 4pm and was tired and hot so the air conditioning was a welcome.




15th floor view of outside, directly outside platinum mall







As Glow is on the 7th floor of Shibuya19, there's macdonalds right downstairs on level1. Porters are on level1 lifts waiting to take your luggage~ Their concierge are friendly but i feel Berkeley's concierge are of top standards. Seriously, their concierge know everything you wanna know and the best stuff in town.
Overall, i feel that the price i paid for Glow was well justified for considering you can find breakfast easily in the morning( noodle soup near the morning market, sabx2 wanton noodles,macdonalds porridge, road side stalls etc!
However, their room service is super slow! On day2 we came back at 5pm and the beds were not done! it happened the next day too so i guess its a manpower issue? I would advise you when heading out to inform the reception to make the beds on your way out of the hotel in the morning.
OKay thats all for my post today, if you are interested in reading more BKK posts, here are the links and more about my trip would be up next.
