can I check with you how is the bargaining like over at the various shopping places in BKK? I jus came back fm BKK over the weekend trip and found that unlike what i read fm some websites, the prices there are pretty much non-negotiable except for the odd 99 baht or so. I was wondering if it was bec I only bought 1 or 2 pieces each or was it bec of my poor bargaining skills?
Min'e a 8.05 am flight... Similiar to Siewmai, i'm gg for budget tour too, thus will be staying @ bkk city inn... As for BTS... shd b Chitlom as what Squidhead mentioned... Have to walk past the pratunam area, if i didnt recall wrongly...
U can't make any appt to visit Master Bai Long Wang...u hve to go there to queue...d temple is only open to public fr Fri to Sun at 6am...will b closed during some festive period. Let me know if u need more details!
U r welcome. Initially I booked at Grand Diamond which is near Baiyoke Sky but decided to change to Novotel becos I heard its much nearer to BTS.
Btw, I have managed to get THAILAND VISITOR CARD. It a discount card accepted at 3,000 locations in Thailand (BKK, Phuket, Ko Samui ...) to be used with Visa card.
I have extra cards .. so first come first serve.
I prefer to meet up to pass the card rather than waste on postage. Most likely at Harbourfront or Dhoby Ghaut around 5.50-6.15pm.
may i know how much u paid for yr 6D5N ? did you booked with travel agent or you booked air tickets and hotel online on yr own ? Coz i also planning to go for 6D5N, but dunno whether to book thru travel agent or book separately online. thanks
