Near The BTS

This is my first trip to Bangkok but not Thailand. I've been to Phuket a few years ago for my diving and snorkelling. I departed from Changi Airport, Singapore on the evening of August 27th. Before that I met my first blogger ever, a lady from Medan, Indonesia - Julia. A wonderful meeting indeed!
It was a very brief vacation and packed with night life activities and shoppings. Chatuchak is 'the' place to go for handycrafts and souvenirs - cheap, attractive and unique. Soi Nana near Sukhumvit is the 'eating place' for Muslim. We went to the Grand Palace by 'Tuktuk' (a three wheel transport), swear to God Im not going to ride that thing again! The weather is very hot, so I declined to take the boat ride along Chao Phraya river. We also went to Pattaya, the beach city. 5 days in Bangkok is not enough, there are so many places to explore and experience. Thanks to Kak Pah, Kak Qintan, Alymiey and Rhoni. It's such a wonderful vacation with you guys.
