Hi, I just returned from BKK on sunday. The weather is extremely hot! Occasionally, there may be thunderstorms or rain but always at night/evening when we were there. If it rains at night around midnight, next day would be cooler for at least till noon. When it rains in the evening, Siam Sq is super dead. Shops seem to close early.
Oh, sometimes it can be windy too. Kinda strange
When going to chatuchak, consider wearing a lightweight sun dress- a lot more cooling
chloef, huh? fully covered? May fall sick coz too hot leh. What about spraying insect repellent instead, wouldn't it be a better idea?
Winnie, cheap massages are everywhere. I went to those small shops near my hotel Baiyoke Sky, the ambience not bad, very soothing. I particularly like one opposite Indra Regent along Ratcha Prarop road, call M@B Pratunam Foot Massage. 135 baht for foot massage plus free head & shoulder massage.
stayed at d'ma b4. i dun take BTS cos its quite a long walk frm hotel to BTS. its ard 15-20mins walk, took cab everytime.
hotel ambience wise, not bad. quite like the hotel there. near to pratunam mkt (ard 5-10mins walk) nt too bad though. o/s d'ma, got some roadside stalls selling foods/snacks.
but if u prefer nearer to siam square/MBK, its beta u stay nearer to these places..
yo whiteveil... me too was back yday... u which airline and wat time...
btw everyone... if u 1 2 change $$ pls do so in SG... unless u can find the money changer in BKK not from bank one... cos the bank rate is not as good as those i change in Chinatown lor...
also... try to stay at hotel that is near to BTS cos is easier to go out and to hotel... i stay Bangkok Palace... out of the way... even got WTC also quite ex though is so near... the traffic there is a killed man... so horrible...
yo squid... thanks... i manage to find the macways after ur description... i really go all the way to Novotel hotel start fm lobby entrance and walk and find it... their service is good cos they can speak english... best is they need only a day to finish the shirts... anyway hvn let my FH try the shirt yet... kekeke... btw u still remember how much Bhat u paid for 1 shirt i paid B650 each leh...

im at row 6, one of the earliest to reach the airport! sigh! din noe that i have to wait so long before i can even checked in haha...
spent abt $680 for hotel and airtickets for two and $700+ for food, transport and shopping lor....din buy a lot of clothes for myself. just some tshirts and shoes and house decor items. hubby bought some clothes and bag for himself and i also bought some food and gifts for family. really regret din spent more!
What! the guy charged you 650 Baht! He charged me 750 Baht leh! Somemore I tailor made 4 shirts! Unless you tailor made alot thats why he charged you cheaper .. but I think u did only one right? We tried to bargain with him but he refused to lower the price.
yo white... kekeke... then u got notice me bo... cos i was one of the supper late one to board the plane... six gals.... hmm... my tix and hotel per pax is $271 then apending on food and shopping abt $600+ nia... but bought some wedding stuff things and clothes, bags and shoes... hmm... but still feel not enough man... kekeke
yo squid... oh maybe the material diff leh... cos i do 3 shirts... 1 is cotton the other is i duno lah... but i know tat he got mention tat if i 1 2 use duno wat material then more ex lor... where did u choose the material fm.... book or those rolls of fabric there.... maybe mine is serve by the owner tats why or wat... i also duno leh...
I chose the material from the rolls. He didnt mention that different material diff price. Anyway, there's nothing much I can do. I was not served by the owner. The owner is like from the Middle East right? The guy who served me is quite plumb and short.
yo squid... oic... think i was served by the boss tats why he give me a better price lor... dun worry lah... ur price dun varies too much too mah... as long as the shirt is nice i think is still worth it lor... cos u dun get to pay such a price for custom made shirt rite...

i just bk fr BKK fr 19 - 22 May stayed at Eastin. Really enjoy, went massage & bought alot of things bk. Hubby and friends managed to go for fishing even. Ok Weather in BKK starting 2 show signs of rainfall. Sky was dark early in all morn, lucky the rain went off fast. Perhaps tos going in mid-end jun shd be prepared.
Same thing the Thai oso enjoy Vesak Day, but over there..they called it Buddha Day. All of us managed to squeezed in Erawan Shrine that day ard 8pm++, they bliff for this day at this time if u pray, will be v v 'ling'!
Well we oso had our 1st experience taking the ride in bkk MRT (diff fr the usual bts) was fun keke. its so convenient, fast & cheap. Do try & remember to ask for the route map fr the counter.
Zen & Tokyu were hving Sales then & hope still going on, as usual bought lingeries la. Ok for those who got time, must go Sampeng!! many wholesalers, shoes, accesories, textile, tibits, stationaries (eg 6pair shoe for ard S$30.) We took a cab fr Hotel & ask to stop at the main road outside Sampeng, then walk inside the lanes.
Those who prefer IT stuff can check out Pantip Plaza & Fortune Mall/Plaza? Bought a bluetooth usb adapter for S$30+ only.
Too many things to see, buy & to be discovered so we plan to go bk ard Dec again ;P
Me too... juz came back from BKK.... Nice places to visit are Sampeng, Pratunum Market, MBK... These are the places where I bought the most things.... I find that there is nothing much to buy in WTC and Suan Lum though... Siam Discovery centre is a nice place to sit down drink coffee and relax...
Went to their big Supermarket Big C.... Manage to find the soya bean sauce which my MIL ask me to buy.... Tried many supermarts also cant find....Lucky hee or else cannot jiao1 chai1 when come back...This sauce v nice... much better than Singapore one which is v salty....
Oh ya BTW, I tried their steamboat MK restuarant..not bad leh... the portion bigger than Coca and much cheaper.... I tried both Coca and MK.... Still prefer MK (soup have more taste as their vege set really comes wif lots of vege) I ordered the seafood set from Coca and additional meat dishes, still soup not so tasty... But one thing for sure, Coca's chilli is better than MK's one...
Wah .. seems like you are v. impressed with them. Good good .... think i will confirm them liao. haha .... Urs is a superior room?
Btw, which airline did u book with? Me in a dilemma - my colleague who took jetstar asia said the seat is too cramp ... even tho it's just a 2 hrs flight, but i still dun want to feel too uncomfortable in these 2 hrs. But, if i take the normal airlines, the price is almost double the price of a budget airline. How?
Also, can share share what are the place that i can go there? Why not we talk in private? Mind if you email me @ [email protected]? Hope to hear from you soon! Thanks!
The brand of the soya bean sauce is in Thai ... The logo is a fisherman with a fisherman's hat.. U try to search... only available in Big C... The bottle is plastic unlike the other brands where the bottle is made of glass. They have two formulas of soya bean sauce, Formula 1 and Formula 2. Mine is formula 1.
Sampeng is a very good lane for shopping.. many wholesale items there to buy... but of course u have to buy at least 3 and above to qualify for the cheaper wholesale price.
