“SHOP N SAVE” in Bangkok

Shopping and eating were oftened touted as the top agendas for most tourists in bustling Bangkok. Our Asia Hotel was located 1 stop away from the majestic Mah Boon Kroong (MBK) Shopping Complex and a few stops to the Chatuchak Weekend Market in the northern suburbs. This was the age where money is everything and in Bangkok you could probably do this at a fraction of the prices back home.

It was no wonder that the girls attempted a 2 day “bloodshed” at Chatuchak Market. I was there for ½ a day and was defeated by the scorching heat and the never ending crowds. The 3 of us took a sky train to Saphan Taksin before transferring to the River Boat to bring us to the Grand Palace compound. It was an unforgettable and interesting experience for the 3 of us on board the “not so steady” river boat.

For the rest of the experience, I leave it up to your imaginations. After all, 2 years have passed and a lot of details had faded overtime………..
