Thailand – Day 01

I arrived via Thai Airways from Naia 1 Terminal to Suvarnabhumi Airport in Thailand at about 1530H. The airport is quite long that they have walkalators for you to use. It took about 10-15 mins walk before I got to the immigration terminal. There was a long line but passing through it was a breeze once your turn was up. I went to the baggage area to get my check in bag and fortunately, my travel agent wrote down what exit I should take to find the person who was going to transfer me to the hotel. I saw my name hanging on one of the stands and found the driver of the van who took me to the hotel I was booked – Indra Regent Hotel

Indra Regent Hotel is big and in the middle of the city. For one person, the suite they booked for me was really nice and spacious. One of the best things I like about it was the hotel was connected to a lot of stores, there’s a night market close to it and a money changer. There’s also actually a Starbucks and McDonald’s at its ground floor lobby. There’s also a cozy hotel swimming pool, restaurants and spa within the hotel.

After I checked in, I went down to look around and found a travel agency just at the lobby of the hotel. I chatted them up, asked around and made friends. I got along with one of their agent that he even offered to bring me to a local restaurant when I asked about local foods. Eventually, he even guided me through the night to experience Thailand’s night life. We went back pretty late in the evening.

Thailand – Day 02

In the morning, I woke up early and prepared for the City Tour as I remembered I was scheduled to be picked up at the lobby at 0720H.

The first stop we made was at the Temple of Golden Buddha. It was a Buddhist temple where a Golden Buddha was exhibited. For the first time, I have also met a real life monk. He was old and he was blessing the items that we have. He even gave me a bracelet for free. The place was really amazing.

The second stop was at the Temple of Reclining Buddha. A giant golden Buddha lying down on his side was exhibited. Outside of it was also amazing. The architecture of the buildings and statues were really stunning.

The third stop was the Marble Temple. It is one of Thailand’s major attraction for the beautiful temples with Bangkok’s ornate style of high gables, stepped-out roofs and elaborate finials.

Lastly, we were brought to a local stop – Gems Gallery. It’s known as The World’s Biggest Jewelry Store. You will be amazed by the jewelries and stones they sell. The prices are also amazing though.

After I was brought back to the hotel, I tried to get rice for Lunch. I thought McDonald’s or KFC would have rice meals like here in the Philippines, but they did not. KFC did have though this spicy rice with chickens which I ate.

In the afternoon, I went to Siam Paragon Mall where the famous Siam Ocean World Bangkok is. It has one of the largest Ocean Aquarium. You can enjoy the view as the fish swims above you as well as ride a small boat and see the big fish swim around you. They also have a 4D/5D movie theater that you can enjoy.

In the evening, I joined the River City Cruise. Eating dinner on a cruise ship as it sails throughout Bangkok. The cruise ship has really nice food. International cuisines with cultural performances and shows onboard

Here’s a quick video of their cultural shows and performances onbard the cruise ship:

Thailand – Day 03

The next morning, we travelled to Thailand’s famous floating market at Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. The market is literally floating with the goods sold on boats and in the shores. We rode a small boat to go around check out what they were selling.

After that, we went to Damnoen Saduak Elephant Village where you can actually ride an elephant, airsoft shooting, atv off road driving and others.

As you can probably imagine, my three days in Thailand was quite an awesome experience. I wish I could have stayed longer but my flight to Malaysia the next day was at 0915H. After an early breakfast, I had to checkout and was picked up from the hotel at 0630H and brought straight to the airport. Luckily, passing through Bangkok’s immigration was also fast and I was able to board my plane on time.
