^^Asiatique is really nice kung gusto mong mag lakad lakad lang at mag food trip. Remind ko lang kayo 5PM-12AM lang sya open. There's a free boat ride from Saphan Taksin going there. May boat silang sarili.

Question pala about Ayutthaya. I read kasi na tumatapat na 200THB per hour ang tuktuk and usually 4 hours ang usapan. May papayag ba ng 1-2 hours lang? May nakita kasi akong walking route na 8km lang, pero syempre we still need a ride sa malalayong attractions. Posible kaya yon? TIA!

Btw kezia, if malapit ka lang sa hotel mo magiikot, they might be willing to keep your luggage even after you check out (for a minimal fee). I read na some do that.

^Don't really recommend Pattaya. It's such a sleaze fest there, mostly sex tourists lang and the like. Plus the beach is not even nice. You'd be better off shopping.

Re-Asiatique - it's really nice. Most of the old merchants from Suan Lum transferred here.

Di ba pwedeng iwan sa hotel mo yung luggage then balikan mo na lang pag papunta ka na hotel? Kami kasi 12AM din flight namin going back to manila iniwan na lang namin sa hotel yung luggage tapos nag shopping kami sa platinum mall. MBK is also good din lalo na sa electronics and souvenirs.

Samin wala nang siningil nung iniwan namin yung luggage namin after mag check out since it's a 4-5 star hotel naman. Ewan ko lang sa mga budget hotels.

Thanks for the heads up, sis! Might as well spend the day shopping then Asiatique at night. :)

Also, hindi ba kami cramped on the first 3 days? TIA

@divamom just wanted to share feedback re-Damnoen Saduak floating market. At 9AM it's already so full & crowded with tourists from Bangkok. If you can get there earlier, much better! It's photogenic but it's not really used by locals anymore. It's just for tourists. Most vendors are really really aggressive & will be selling tiangge type items/souvenirs. Not really my type but a lot of people still like to go there :)

^I see, I was planning on getting a tour para less hassle sa tranportation. Any floating market na mas feasible puntahan? There are only two kasi na options sa Asiatravel.

Also, sa Siam Niramit show pwede ang elephant ride, right? kahit photo ops lang. Thanks!  :)

^If you'll be in Bangkok on a weekend you can try the Bang Namphueng Floating market. It is much nearer to Bangkok compared to the Saduak market. Plus it's not touristy. From the Bangna BTS station, take a short taxi ride to the BangNa pier, hop on the boat then take a bike ride to the market.

If you have a day to spare, you can even stay at the Bangkok Tree House. Hubby and I loved it there!

@divamom - What mama squeak suggested or Tha Kha (but they operate on a lunar calendar - don't remember the exact days they are open)

^Thanks for your suggestions!  :)

Too bad coz we'll arrive late on a sunday, fly out saturday. Bangkok Tree House looks cool, but I don't think we need to move hotels anymore during our 5 nights stay. I'll research more and hope to come up with a good floating market tour. :)

May naka standby ako na booking sa Chaydon Sathorn and Smile Inn. One is around Sathorn area, yung isa is near Khaosan. Anyone na may experience sa two? Free cancellation naman sila both so cancel ko yung isa before our trip.or kung may masuggest kayong iba, our budget is ideally 9k for 2 ppl, 6 nights, including breakfast.


Dagdag pa (hehe sorry matanong), anything to share about Saochingcha (giant swing)? In terms of food around the area, ayos ba?
