D3 & D9 Mon & Sun 10 & 16/1/2011 Bangkok, Thailand

Sleeper train (2nd class): Bangkok>Nong Khai= B688
Food: B230
MRT & Sky train: B80
Sundries: B160

Total expenses incurred: B1,158 (Rm122)

For this trip , I did not put up any overnight stay in Bangkok as I had been to most of the touristy places within Bangkok in my previous visits. In between time before the train departures, I had two half hours in Bangkok. To kill time, I left my luggage bag for a temporary storage (B50)at the Hua Lamphong train station and took MRT and Sky train rides to some nearby places & shopping malls - merely for food and window shopping - most smart travelers do this anyway !

1) Food glorious food - Fish maw soup (B60), Mango sticky rice (B80), coconut grilled chicken or pork (B15 per stick), stewed duck meat rice (B60); Siam Paragon Ocean World Food Court VS Chatuchak hawker food stalls - all the food I tasted were Yummy Yummy !!!

2) Lumphini Park & King Rama VI Statute

3) The opening of a new Madam Tussauds at Siam Discovery, Bangkok - one free shot for me for Madam's free publicity

4) Siam Center, Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery, MBK - popular shopping havens for locals & tourists

5) Hua Lamphong Railway Station, Bangkok - built by Dutch architects & engineers just before World War 1

6) Chatuchak Weekened Market - only open on weekend; hundreds of stalls selling all sort of merchandise & food; if you enjoy shopping, this is the place

I spotted a signboard in downtown Bangkok with a warm greeting message: Bangkok Smiles , Happy New Year 2011. What about Kuala Lumpur ? Still snoring or in deep slumber !"
