Bangkok Trip

Some photos from my Bangkok trip in January, it was fun and memorable. Hope you will enjoy the photos ^_^

Arriving at Suvarnabhumi airport
Baiyoke Sky Hotel lobby
The famous Erawan shrine
Such a beautiful shrine at Talay Bangkok (al-fresco dining with live band)

Christmas Deco at Talay Bangkok
View from 82nd floor of the hotel

Random photo of the buffet breakfast
Walking towards Chatuchak market!

Local ice lollies with different flavours like Coke, grape, apple, etc.
Only managed to take photos of the pets for sale there, was too busy shopping!
Chicks as pets?

Guess what are these? At first glance, I thought the right platter was soft-shell crab but actually it's cockroaches!

They're fried bugs.

Taking the river taxi like a boss =)

Flower market - Pak Klong Talad
Spot the star fishcake

Taking the river taxi like a local was one experience which I like. It was cheap to travel by boat, cost me about 15 bhat per person. We took the river taxi just to get to the flower market, they sell tonnes of flowers at very cheap prices. 5 stalks of roses only cost 25 bhat!

 Another shopping paradise - Siam Square.
We love Siam Square

Some of our haul

Naraya bags at MBK shopping mall.

It's been 6 years since my last visit to Bangkok in 2006 and it's really great to be back there. It's hot, dusty and crowded but I like it all the same!
