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.
We spent about 3 hours there…pretty short by our standard but guess the heat got to us. We bought a few things.
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.
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.
After that we went for a massage. Found this massage place that was so cheap with wonderful service.
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….
Mom tried to heat up a dumpling with the bedside lamp.
Mom has hit the sack while I am blogging this. Was a nice day :)
