Sifting through photos I took when I was in Bangkok I collected my favorite ones. Days before my birthday last November, I flew to Bangkok via Access Travel and Tours, and explored parts of the cities which I haven't discovered. It was a breeze to travel with Access. I've been to Bangkok couple of times but solely I dedicated that time visiting elephants, temples and a Santorini inspired park.
During my stay in Bangkok, I got to experience the Chatuchak weekend market. An hour wasn't enough to roam around the 27 acres of land nearly 15,000 shopping booths, clearly my legs were aching when I went back to the hotel. From the daily shopping habit of going around Central World and Siam Paragon, I decided to do the tourist thing to visit the Madame Tussuads wax museum. Extreme familiar faces of celebrities seen and yet I have to share about it. Just in time when I was in Bangkok they were celebrating their Loi Krathong festival. It's a way to pay tribute and gratitude to their Goddess of Water. I took part of it by searching for a nearby river from our hotel, bought a hand-made krathong, decorated elaborately of flowers, made a wish and set afloat it on the river.
Daytime happen when the city streets I've witnessed would always be filled with vendors and clamorous tuktuk rides. Nighttime would bring extreme artificial color of lights as I dance my way to experience again the Bangkok night life scenes in Thong Lor.
Clearly enjoyed Bangkok. I promise to be back. If I haven't convince you enough, I hope my photos did.
