Pa help mga sisses sa suggestion.

Gusto ng Mama ko mag Chatuchak Market kasi ang plano niya is puntahan yung mga hindi pa nila napupuntahan ng Papa ko. My question here is ano ang pwedeng isabay sa Chatuchak Market during that day? Kasi for sure matagal na shopping ito so parang imposible naman na may maisasabay pa kami rito. What I mean is yung kaya pa naman tapos yung pwede rin sa gabi kung sakaling hindi kami matatapos agad. 

Ito mga choices

Elephant ride sa Khao Yai
Dusit or Safari Zoo
Siam Niramit

Basta yung walang kinalaman sa pagbibili or shopping kundi pasyal pa rin.

I've changed my mind sana pumayag Mama ko rito na Sunday na lang mag Chatuchak market kasi at least mag-impake na kami nun after mamili. Dahil Sunday night mismo magpunta na kami airport.

Kaya Saturday puro pasyal the whole day pero hindi ko alam kung papayag sa proposal ko.

As I've mentioned makikituloy lang kami sa kakilala though we don't have any idea about the plans if they have itinerary for us or they will ask us. Although this will be my proposal.

1st day: Arrival 10:00 am.
I hope we can go to the temples and palaces like Grand Palace or any other place that are near to that place
If there is still time we can have river cruise during night time - kung papayag sila.

2nd day: Gusto ko sana mag Siam Park City or Safari World

Hindi ko pa alam kung ano pang pwedeng pasyalan sa gabi. Huwag lang shopping dahil ayokong mamili at walang pambili.  ;D

So help me anong pwede kong pasyalan sa gabi? After the Siam Park just in case?

3rd day: Makakasama ko na Mama ko rito. So as I mention here ang gusto niya puntahan namin yung hindi pa nila napupuntahan dati ng Papa ko. Here's my suggestion

Khao Yai Park
Dusit Zoo - kung may time pa
Siam Niramit - at night

4th day which is our last day - Baka gusto ng Mama ko mamili sa Chatuchak. I doubt it kung may gana pa siyang mamasyal.

My take sa chatuchak
- I have been here twice, separate trips, and sa totoo lang mas ok na sa platinum ka nalang mag shop. For one, AIRCONDITIONED sa platinum, the only pagod you will feel is the lakad-pagod, unlike sa chatuchak, init-pagod! magulo pa. i dont know pero for me, mag platinum ka nalang. mas mahal lang but mas gusto ko don

Sa mga sis na nakapunta ng Bangkok via Cebu Pac, may binayaran pa ba kayong mga travel tax / terminal fees pauwi? If yes, magkano? Thanks very much!



Eto na yun nagevolve na itin namin, na super luwag on account of budget hehe and ayaw din naman mastress masyado..:

Day 1 - Arrival at around midnight, spend time in the airport. Kung di pagod, or tor kor/chatuchak morning then checkin sa hotel after lunch, TULOG, then maybe walk around chinatown / khaosan area at night

Day 2 - Grand Palace and surroundign area

Day 3 - Golden Mount-Loha Prasat-Saochingcha-Chinatown food trip culminating at dinner at T&K seafood

Day 4 - Siam area

Day 5 - Muang Boran and Erawan Museum

Day 6 - Free day, not yet sure (pwedeng dusit zoo, jim thompson or whatever, balikan yung mga nagustuhang food from Day 3)

Day 7 - check out of hotel, or tor kor/chatuchak if di nakapunta during day one (else, while the hours at a mall..).

I'm here na sa Bangkok nitong Thursday pa. Kahapon ako nag elephant ride sa elephant village ng Ayutthaya. Ang mahal which is not quite worth kahit na ba 30 minutes yung duration, my mom paid 800 baht. Tapos eto pa since siempre may guide yun na taga take charge dun sa elephant edi una tinanong niya kung taga saan ako tapos nalaman na Manila so nagtagalog na ng mga alam niya na greetings like Magandang hapon, tapos familiar raw sya sa lugar rito sa Pinas like yung araneta center Cubao then nakapanood raw sya rito ng Pba. Eh di ako naman nakipagchikahan rito kung ano pa mga ginawa niya rito sa Pinas. Tapos sip sip pa kasi nung nasa middle part na kami ng elephant ride eh di nagpapapicture na ako na siya kukuha eh di he keeps on saying maganda which means maganda yung kuha niya to me. Then later on binebentahan niya ako nung beads na puti ewan ko naman kung gawa sa ivory yun. Tinanong ko na lang kung magkano sabi niya 300 baht which is of course namamahalan ako saka hindi ko naman kailangan eh! Abah! nung patapos na kami he is forcing me to pay him a tip na 100 baht or kahit 50 raw.  ??? I mean I understand naman na normal ito saka hindi naman part of cheating yun eh! Pero naman namamahalan na nga ako sa ride itself tapos magbigay pa ako ng tip. Tinanong ko yung ale sa counter kung required ba yun tapos sabi ko na lang wala akong pera sabi na lang niya no problem. Eh di iniwan ko na at hindi ko na binigyan tapos siya may ibang tourist na nakasakay kung san rin ako galing eh nagpupumilit pa rin sa tip kulang na Lang ipasok niya yung elepante dun sa waiting area. Sa isip isip ko na lang loko to ah  ;D kala niya sa akin porket tourist magpapauto?

Suuuper ok si Tita Julie. We booked her in our Thailand travels in 2008 and just 2 weeks ago. Super bait din yun daughter nya, si WenWen.

thumbs up especially for siam niramit on day 3. a must-see show :) there's an option that goes with dinner buffet at the venue. take photos and with the actors outside the theater as much as possible bec they'll ask you to leave your cameras and phones before entering the theater. have fun!

Same here. Super saglit lang kami sa Chatuchak and we decided to leave agad. Di kami nag-enjoy masyado. Mas ok Platinum and even MBK for me :)
There are four basic food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate & chocolate truffles. ♥

Trianna buti ka pa nakapanood ng Siam Niramit although hindi ko na talaga ito pinilit sa Mama ko kasi baka mamahalan siya. I know it is worth pero baka siya hindi pumayag.
