Here starts my Bangkok 2013 blog post!
Have been waiting for it for so long and really excited because it is the first time me going overseas with friend!
We booked the tickets during Sept 2012. I purposely planned it on June 2013 as by the time it is here, I've completed the ACCA June exam and it is the start of our off peak too!
This is the rough plan for the trip! Have been discussing with Syndy for a few weekends and also meet up with Kai Liang over Skype to talk about the plan and another time at Bing to finalize the hotel booking too!
Me and Syndy also did list out all the food that we must try out in Bangkok!Surveyed the famous blogger's post on Bangkok too!
Then sister shared with me a private tour package that her friend introduced her. It is very comvenient that I can whatsapp him and ask for more details before we go decide to take the package or not. No need to pay any deposit just book him a date!
He even replied me that this is his taxi! It is super big that it can fit 7 ppl max!
There are four packages available! Actually can custom made a bit like make same changes and he will tell you whether you can make it that way or not!
We picked this package which cost 2500 baht. So if there are 7 ppl sharing, it isn't expensive at all!
We did ask for pattaya package too! It cost 3000 baht!
He do provide airport transfer which cost 700 baht per way. Again, it charged on per way basis.
I exchanged 19000 Thai baht! It is excluding the money that we paid on hotel and ticket! This is solely for shopping, food and transport!
Meet my cute domokun passport cover!
Me and Syndy fly over to KL on Tuesday night and checked in to Tune Hotel! We are going to take morning flight to Hatyai and then transit to Bangkok!
We had our breakfast at MCD!
This is Syndy with her breakfast set!In the morning we took the shuttle bus from tune hotel to LCCT. Paid RM2 per head. We ever thought of walk over from hotel to LCCT but after that we found out it is not a short distance from hotel to LCCT! Imagine we still have our luggage with us too!
Asked Lynda to send me the list of colleagues in my group! Just for my reference the number of people to prepare the souvenirs.
Before leaving the plane, we are requested to fill this arrival form and hand in at Imigresen counter!
The first thing to do is get reload for the local sim! I got the local sim from my sister who got back from Bangkok on the day I fly off to KL. So we shared the sim which cost RM25!
Spended 200 baht to reload for two weeks usage. Later we found out each day will charge 49baht max for Internet and unlimited usage after hit the Max charges per day! It is very easy to get top up at nearby 7-11.
We got very excited looking all sorts of special drinks!
Lunch of the day at hatyai Airport!
Found this devil and angels cornetto!
And also this green tea cornetto which is not for sell in Malaysia!
Then I receive a text from family on ordering this chips!
camwhore at airport!
And we finally reach Bangkok at 8pm (Bangkok time). Bangkok is faster one hour than Malaysia!
We meet up David at Bangkok! He flew over from Penang while we took the transit flight. His joining was last minutes! He booked the ticket some where in February and Lynda just found out she was pregnant that time where later then she pulled out from this trip.
We took the cab from airport to Pattaya! It cost 1600 baht! Initially we thought of going Bangkok for five days first and then go to Pattaya for two days and spend another day back to Bangkok! But then we think that this is not gonna work as we will hav to travel around with luggages!
The conclusion is three days two night at Pattaya and another six days five nights at Bangkok!
We booked Baywalk Residences for Pattaya's stay. Since we planned to stay at a moderate hotel in Bangkok, so we booked a better hotel for our stay in Pattaya! As in more expensive? it is gonna cost about RM200 per night for a room!
Two of them doing the check in and I'm busy snapping picture around
This is the grand palace?
We booked a room for three with bed add on. This hotel is very strict that when they found out there are three ppl checkin then they ask us to add RM60 per night. That's why it cost RM210! Initially was only charged RM140-150 (before tax)!
Clean toilet checked!
After settle down then we quickly go downstairs for a walk!
Spotted cute cocktail car!
There is a massage centre near our hotel!
So many juices! Cost 40 baht per bottle or three for 100 baht!
Gone crazy when saw so many flavours of Lays in 7-11!
Us that night!
Exciting beach day awaiting us!!! So we sleep at 12am and going to beach tomoro morning!
