^Wow enjoy your trip sis and dont forget to share your experience. May IT ka na ba?
We can only move on  if we accept things we don't want to happen, learn things we don't want to know and let go of memories we cannot live without.. :D

for those who wanted to stay near Pratunam area. I highly recommend staying sa Citin Pratunam Hotel. Hotel area is very convenient at super near lang sa Ratchaparop Station na diretso sa Suvarnabhumi Airport . Walking distance lang to sa Platinum Mall at malapit din sa chatuchak market :) And sobrang cheap lang din ng rates nila.

Hello guys just got back from bkk. i so love the city. Yung hotel muna ang ikukwento ko.

More on shopping ang nagawa namin. Nasira ang itinerary ko dahil sa hotel namin sobrang nainlove kami ayaw na naming gumala haha. We stayed at The sukosol formerly The Siam City hotel. it's very near sa lahat. Sobrang lapit nya sa BTS Phaya Thai Station and Airport Rail Link City Line Phaya Thai Station like 3 mins walk kaya from and to airport nag Airport Rail Link na lang kami. 2 stations away din sya sa Siam Paragon and other malls near the area. may malapit ding mall dun sa hotel. tanaw mo din from the hotel yung Baiyoke Sky Hotel. From Khao San Road to the sukosol nag tuktuk na lang kami and it costed us 120-150baht and from asiatique riverfront 200baht. Ewan ko kung mura na yun kasi gabi na din kaya baka mahal na din yun.

The hotel is rated 5 star in agoda.com & 4 star naman sa Tripadvisor. Sobrang dami din nag stay dun especially during weekends. Plus ang sarap ng Pad Thai sa Patummat Restaurant sa hotel. Sobrang ganda ng pool at konti lang ang nagsswimming. Kadalasan walang tao so solo mo lang yung pool. They also have gym kung gusto nyo mag work out. nasa 2300php lang ang per night for 2pax. Nag booked ako sa website nila mismo (http://www.siamhotels.com/siamcity/) kasi may promos sila and may welcome drinks & fruits pa depende sa binook mong promo. They also allowed late check out until 3pm depende sa availability ng room. Ang ayoko lang nung nag check in kami is nag charge sila ng 3000baht sa credit card ko para daw sa telephone charges if ever gumamit kami but they will cancel it pag nag check out na kayo pero 1 week pa daw malalaman or marerefund kasi icheck muna yata nila kung may nagamit nga kayo sa phone.

I guess yun lang muna for the hotel. Mag kwento ako about sa trip namin some other time. Medyo pagod pa dahil sa kakalakad sa bkk.
LOVE ME LIKE YOU'LL NEVER SEE ME AGAIN

Warning lang sa mga tuktuk scam:

Nasa Chinatown kami ng dad ko, looking for a jewelry store so we could buy a pair of gold earrings for my mom. Hindi namin makita yung stores kahit ikot na kami ng ikot, and obviously mukha kaming turista dahil may mapa kami, kaya nilapitan kami ng guard ng isang 7-11. He told us na he knew a good place to buy really cheap jewelry, so my dad and I decided to listen to him. The guard asked for a piece of paper and drew a rough map, and he marked the destination as "THAI FACTORY." Then he told us that the tuktuk waiting beside the 7-11 entrance would take us there for only 40 baht.

Dun pa lang, alam ko na right away na scam yun, pero di ako nagpahalata. Naghahanap pa ako ng right time to say no. The guard kept talking about how great the bargains were dun sa Thai Factory, and how lucky we would be for getting amazing deals. After he was done, I told him that we would consider going to the factory, but that we wanted to eat lunch first. As my dad and I started walking away, hinarangan kami ng guard, and told us that we could eat lunch there sa area around the factory, and that we should shop first because the stores there would close at 2:00 p.m. Obvious na obvious na ang desperation ni kuya, so lalo akong nakumbinsi na scam nga yun.

I was very firm when I told him that we weren't interested. He started to follow us, and when he caught up with us, he blocked our way. That's when I started screaming "NO, NO, NOOOOO!" Other tourists in the area looked at us and thought the guard was trying to steal my stuff, so thankfully, he backed away.

When I got back to Manila, I Googled "Thai Factory," and true enough, scam nga yun!!!

^ kami naman na scam ng taxi driver. From Baiyoke SKy hotel sumakay kami agad ng taxi na pinara lang namin. partly kasalanan din namin kasi sumakay agad kami. pag sakay namin sabi namin meter pls. pero sabi nung taxi driver 100 baht daw. sobrang lapit lang ng hotel namin from baiyoke sky hotel para sa price na sinabi nya tapos nung sabi naming no at nag attempt kaming bumaba ayaw kaming pababain. sabi ko na lang sa hubby ko sige na lang. ayoko na kasi magkagulo pa. kaya ayun natuto kami. Di na kami sumasakay ng taxi. Tuktuk na lang kasi mas madaling bumaba dun at mas "fun" hehe at before kami sumakay nakikipag deal muna kami. Pero the whole trip went fine. I miss BKK already kahit may ganung experience kami.
