i went to BKK last dec with hubby by Cathay airline, stayed at Twin Towers for 4D3N, the hotel is nice tho not glam..room is more spacious than some other hotels, svc is good. Breakfast is so-so but who cares coz considering the difficulties finding loo outside..ops!
Oh yeah must tell u tis, Twin Tower is not near tos bazaar/shopping places compare to Narai hotel, Asia hotel, baiyoke, Novotel, Arnoma etc. Beta get a hotel near these area, otherwise its terrible gettin stuck in jam (1hr+?).
Haha agreed wif Joseph on Patpong, heard its a gangster territory, hard to bargain...must be careful..u got this feeling like ppl are watching u. There got pubs, pole dancing, 'shows' lar..abit rowdy.
here its goes:
Day1 (even)- Pratunam night bazaar, bought mostly kid's clothing, accesories. Then head to Patpong, bery ex!so only bought some souvenirs and tibits.
Day2 - half day tour, then proceed to WTC (not much to see), nxt go to Erawan Shrine nearby (must go! heard many ppl's wishes come true, many famous celebrities go there pray)...then we walked all the way to MBK (shd hv taken cab) Lotsa cheap shoes, accesories, handphone thingy, clothing..and yesh EVENING GOWNS!!! Esp. Wacoal lingeries at one of the Dept Store..bery cheap.
Day3 - Went to Chatuchak early in the morn at 8am! stalls start to open already. Wah this is the place i got 80% of my things. u can find clothings, cockery, furnitures, souvenirs, books, pets like dogs/fishes etc, lingeries...so many but prepare to squeeze the crowd fr aftn onwards.
Abt evening, we head to Chinatown (Yaowarat) to hv our dinner, many orient food stalls/restaurants to choose fr. Shops selling dry foods, medication, tibits(eg.kao sai-bak kwa sticks), fruits etc no much perhaps it was quite late when we reached there.
I plannin to go BKK again ard July, so might consider Baiyoke Sky or Narai hotel..if not might get bk Twin Towers again hehe. A fren who stayed at Asia Hotel said its not bad too, near bazaar area & delicious breakfast.
Anyone here who are arranging the accomdation on ur own can recom. website that offer cheap rate? Anyone intend to take AirAsia?
okie hope all who plan to go BKK will hv a enjoyable and fruitful one *winkz*
