Check out the video above for some inside peek of my travel in Bangkok, Thailand – The Land of Smiles.
Recently, me and some my friends spent some time travelling The Land of Smiles – Bangkok, Thailand. I know what you’re thinking. 4 dudes having a sausage fest in Bangkok, Thailand, what can we do, right? Red light districts, hookers, booze, alcohols, parties, clubs and the list go on. While that might be true, there are more to Bangkok than just the stuffs that I listed.
Personally, I love the culture, people and the vibe that the city exert. And the choices of street food is plain incredible compared to what we have back in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Not to miss out the selection of foods and convenience of their 7-11 stores and Family Marts.
We spent 8 days 7 nights, staying in a hostel named 3Howw Hostel, located at Asok Montri Road, Sukhumvit Soi 21, just a few minutes walk away from Terminal 21. It’s also strategically located within 2 to 3 minutes walk away from MRT Sukhumvit station and BTS Asok station, which is great for you to get out the city during the rush hour. Don’t kid about Bangkok’s traffic though, I have experienced being in a traffic jam for more than an hour for a less than 10km journey.
Asok Montri road is pretty busy itself, however, during the non-peak period, you can easily get a cab, or motor taxi to access places that BTS nor MRT cover. Better still, do yourself a favor, download either Uber or Grab app to book your choice of vehicle and hop right on as they arrived.
Well, back to the trip, we arrived at the Don Mueang Airport around afternoon and we proceeded to take the bus to head to BTS Mo Chi station. From there, we brought the tickets at 42 baht each to get to the BTS Asok station. I was quite excited at the thoughts of grabbing an ice cold beer, as the weather in Bangkok, Thailand is scorching hot. Little that we know, it was Wesak Day celebration. As a heavily influenced Buddhism country, all alcohol sale are ceased till the next day.
It broke my heart, I’m sad…. Fuck it!
