It’s been really long dear readers. I was on a vacation to Bangkok , which was an extraordinary fun experience, hence the delay in post. Check my Instagram (@desipopsicle) account for my Bangkok Travel Posts.
One of the biggest reason why we (Myself and Surbhi – My boon companion from college) planned our trip to Thailand was to shop, which I think is in every girl’s bucket list. My soul is springing with joy after it.
We started off with our trip with the Chatuchak Market which actually serves us a medley in terms of variety of goods. Deliberately landed on a Sunday to experience its bustle which is open only during the weekends. Compared to the other places we visited to shop it had the largest area covered. Do buy a lot of time to browse through the entire market.
Another shopping attraction in Bangkok is the Pratunam Street Market and the Palladium Mall Bangkok which is right opposite each other. The Pratunam street shops are way more pocket friendly than the Palladium if you have the patience to dig into and negotiate for your favourite item. While the mall shopping is a bit cost inflated but ahead on trends. You will possibly like every store you enter.
Spending only 2 days in Bangkok we headed to Pattaya. Pattaya is a city which has a fun vibe to it. It not being a very good shopping destination, has other tourist attractions.
1. Coral Island Tour – You have many fun filled water sport activities including a walk on the river bed (We were charged 800 baht/person). Yes we did catch a live coral.
2. Walking Street – A very happening street filled with food joints and happy souls. At every step you shall be asked , “you want show?” but trust me they arent talking cinemas 😛
3. Alcazar show– A 60 minute cabaret show. There are VIP seats, regular seats, and balcony seats (600 – 1000 baht). You would love to see the dressing and make up of the performers.
Last but never the least, my encounter with food. I survived mostly on cold coffee and desserts which were luscious and alluring. Thailand hasn’t given me much when it came to food (I am a vegetarian). Naming a few good food joints would be, Indique Restro Bar and Govinda Restaurant in Bangkok and of course the readily available Burger King which was super filling and tasty.
Do not want to skip mentioning “The Speak Thai application”. It really helped us in chatting with the locals as english there is quite incognizant.
