Sa Wa Di Krup - Exploring the land of all Smiles Part 1

Sa Wa Di Krup! I'm back from Thailand, the land of all smiles, safe and sound. Thanks everyone for your concern =) The situation is not as bad as what you really thought, didn't see any red shirts around. Instead...was welcome by the friendly Thais, and greeted umpteen times of Sa Wa Di Kar...


Traveled with my the German interns from Bosch, stayed in my supervisor's Khun Mi's place... her house was really big, really big.


We reached Thailand time around 4.30pm, and after unpacking our stuff... we were welcomed by Khun Mi with local dishes...


To be honest with you, this was the first time I tried all these fruits... haha, yea, I'm a carnivore... RAWWWWR.


After dinner, was already 7pm...rested for about an hour...and we head on to our long awaited activity... THAI MASSAGE!!! 2 hours of full body massage cost about 500 bhat ... about $23! Sibei shiok....sibei worth it lah! As the curfew was still on, we had to return before 12am... that night, I really had a very good sleep...


The next day, woke up as early as 7am in the morning...to go to floating market. Khun Mi booked a van for us for whole day... from 7am to 6pm...total damage ... $25 per person... we head on for A & W breakfast... wah piang... it was like million years I haven't eaten A & W... the feeling? My tears almost dropped down when I ate the curly fries and root beer... awwwwWWWW. LoL!


Scenes at the floating market...


'Live' at Floating market!


Markus, myself, Khun Mi and her son.


Marco, Markus and myself on boat...row , row, row your boat...gently down the sea...


Stopped by one of the stations at floating market... trying to be funny...hahaha.


After floating market...was our sight seeing sessions... Buddha, buddhas and more buddhas...


Markus, Myself, Christian and Marco


At one of the temple...


Now...this picture you see here, not easy to take yea. We really climb up big steps and small steps... but its worth it lah...


After sightseeing...was already dinner time... Dinner was at Macdonale... look at Mr. Macdonale in Thai... SA WA DI KRUP!


After dinner...we head on to the sky bar and the state tower... the security was quite tight here, many security officers... checking your bags... even our van was being checked...everything in, underneath... everywhere lah...


Reached the 64th floor...sky bar... it's really a good place to chill out... MUST SEE MUST GO! Highly recommended... you can catch the entire night scene of Bangkok from here...


I really like this picture alot... by chance caught the lightning from afar...nice!


Night scene at Bangkok...


Myself, Markus, Christian and Marco at Skybar! Price is not really cheap though... has all those 10% service charge and 7% Tax...like Singapore price... but okay lah, being served by so many people, being greeted like you have never been greeted before...and the ambiance... worth the price!

Alrights... that's all for Bangkok in Day 1 and Day 2!

Coming up... Shopping paradise in Bangkok!
