Third day in Bangkok with mom

Mom and I took the train to Chatuchak, a first time experience for both of us.

It was surprisingly stress-free. We are both pretty adverse to public transportation you see. In fact we were so impressed by the ride we’re going to spend most of tomorrow touring Bangkok via the BTS Skytrain!

From On Nut station, we headed to Mo Chit station, pretty much from one end to the other on the Sukhumvit line.

It took only about 20 or 25 minutes though…about the same or less time than a cab ride minus the surly drivers and traffic jams.

# – Mummy in Chatuchak. Her first time!

# – Noodles for lunch.

We spent about 3 hours there…pretty short by our standard but guess the heat got to us. We bought a few things.

# – Haul from Chatuchak.

I forgot to mention that both of us had minor diarrhoea from too much spicy food in the past couple of days. It was the longest train ride we had ever taken lol

We reached back hotel, pooped and checked out Tesco Lotus which is around the corner from our hotel.

At Tesco also we managed to shop. Bought underwears and a couple of pairs of shoes.

After Tesco, decided we needed our hair washed. Found a salon a few steps away from our hotel.

It was 90baht each for a wash and a gorgeous blow dry. My hair is still holding on after being exposed to the outdoors, massaged vigorously and lied on.

# – Best RM9 I have ever spent on!

Then we explored a shopping centre called Big C Extra. Had a bland dinner at a chain restaurant due to earlier diarrhoea episode and then went shopping.

Found a couple of trift shops and went straight into ultra efficient mode – scan, discard or buy.

# – This is my favourite haul despite that some of their previous owners might be dead.

After that we went for a massage. Found this massage place that was so cheap with wonderful service.

How cheap?

How about 300baht for 2 hour Thai massage and 500baht for 2 hour oil massage? Ridiculous!

Located at Sukhumvit Road, same row as my hotel, the Imm Fusion Sukhumvit and Metropolitan Water Authority building; it is just a few shops away. Don’t know the shop’s name cause it is all in Thai but there’s a small police hut right in front of it. The path between the shop and police hut is unusually narrow.

After the massage we got back to snack. We ate and we ate….

# – Soon to be junk in my trunk.

Mom tried to heat up a dumpling with the bedside lamp.

# – Mom insisted it worked because the dumpling wasn’t stone cold. Ok.

Mom has hit the sack while I am blogging this. Was a nice day :)

      hi sophia, the hotel is one would call a budget boutique. our room was clean and well-equipped with tv and clean towels, strong water pressure in the bathroom, the bed was comfy. no snacks in the fridge but who needs em in Bangkok hehe. the location is in sukhumvit and a short walk to the Skytrain station (On Nut Station). So transportation wise, taxis tend to hesitate taking you to the area due to the heavy traffic but we travelled mostly on the train – which goes to chatuchak and siam area. supposed to stop near Platinum fashion mall too but we took a cab there so I can’t be sure. have a good time in BKK!
