so yesterday we went to Wat Phao temple which is also known as Reclining Buddha or sleeping buddha.we took bts to siam.then walked few mins to Khlong boat.
at sapan hua chang waiting for the watertaxi ride.this boat only stop few secs where poeple have to go out n come in quickly like when u take a bus.so really need to balance urself!urghh
as we arrived at the msia embassy..we were lost actually.i spent about 1 hour walking on this painful feet coz hubby didn't want to take taxi.the gps n trip advisor not so useful coz some people check in at wrong places n not updating the place..so can u imagine aku jalan sesatsesat selama 1 jam pastu jumpa blk tpt sesat tu!
n then i really wanted to take taxi n hubby just ikut jek.like duhhh..oh before we took taxi we walked in front of this tokong n approached by man spoke english.he said he was a teacher been teaching for 25 yrs n he said today the grand palace n temple is close.this is just a spam!!huhu
this is the main entrance of temple.the price ticket for tourist is 120b if im not mistaken.
to get inside..have the dress code.have to wear long skirt or pants.or else they give u cover.
then we took boat again headed to town.we stop at central.
this is wat arun.the view is nice at night especially during sunset...
as we haven't eat bfast yet..so we headed straight to MBK plaza to grab halal food!
location: Ali indian muslim food at 5th floor MBK Plaza just opposite Yana restaurant.i ordered nasi putih with fish.since the foodcourt use the same plates n cutleries,i requested to take away packaging so that i can eat without was2.hehe
then we do some shopping again there...n at 330pm we headed to Jim Thompson Muesum.Jim Thompson is a well known person who invented the thai silk.he was believed died in cameron highland n people cannot find his body.thats y they build museum as memorial.
these are few types of silk..
then we headed to pratunam market where lots of streetmarket.at the entrance gate of museum just turn left n walk at the back alley along the riverbank to take the boat to pratunam market.wahhh travel like local thai :P
this is at the riverside where all the walls full with paint arts.after went to pratunam market we went back to hotel.
at 5pm we went out take bts to Bang Chack which is just one station away from our hotel to Jim Thompson factory outlet.at bts bang chack take exit 5 then after one block of shop houses turn right n go straight about 100m walk.
the factory outlet situated at Sukhumvit soi93
so here are few kain yg sempat snap.ade jenis viscose silk,raw silk n cotton silk.paling mahal pun700bhat 1 meter. it means 1 meter rm70! quite cheap.
so i grab 8mtrs.ok kalo anda beli kain sini request VAT refund.it is like tax.isi form n claim at the airport.so dptla refund dlm 120bht =rm12.
then we have to walk again to get halal food.to get there we passed through the benchasiri park.the park looking green coz they really take care the trees..
Usman Muslim food.location: Sukhumvit soi 22,right beside the Imperial Queen Hotel.close on friday.
dinner:fried rice with salted fish n egg.
n mango stickyrice !!
about 8pm we decided to go to siam square.have to walk pass through the park again n take bts to siam.
hubby been really insisted to go to this shop coz he followed thier IG! boley gitu?layan jekla..
so this type of shop just like joe flizow type of shop.tp ni kedai baber shop n sebelah jual shirts.jo punya kedai gunting rambut n sebelahnya cafe.
this is such every weekend sights seen everywhere.at the street n below the bts station.huhu its indymarket.ok thats all from me the-not-so-frequent-traveller-log.hehe
wrap up: i only spent rm2200 which is we saved at transportation coz we only took bts,boat n most of the time walk!! only took taxi once.n we only ate twice perday coz halal food hard to find!!
