~2554~ Bangkok-Pattaya Shopping Fun Day 3

Day 3 - Bangkok, Thailand
Half Day City Tour (Temple of Dawn, Wat Arun 曼谷郑王庙, Boat Ride, Jewelry Factory, Bee Factory, Four Face Buddha)
Chatuchak Weekend Market, Siam Paragon, MBK, Chamchuri Square

Time flies, the third day of our trip. This day, we have been arranged to join for a half-day city tour, which is included in our ground tour package. We met up with our tour guide Ah Bing at 7.20am, then we go to our first stop, boat ride to visit Wat Arun, is a one of the landmark of Thailand, located at west riverbank of Chao Phraya River. Because we are wearing shorts, so we are prohibited from entering the temple. We just walk around the temple, and here they do have the photo section, which we can wear the Thai National Costume to take photo. Since it's not expensive, I have a try.

Boat Ride

Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn)

HuiPeng with Thai Costume (100baht)

When we are inside the boat, there is a lady selling the welcome flower to tourists. At first, thought it's not forcing, but who knows she forced us to buy for the flower. No choice! We bought it! Then we proceed to Jewelry Factory, we have been given a 10% discount voucher for all merchandise, we do use this voucher, but not on the jewelry, we use it to buy for some accessories (belt and necklace). After Jewelry factory, we move to Bee factory, at here, we taste the honey ice-cream, so yummy. And it's raw honey taste good too, just their price are too high, one small bottle cost around 600baht. So we just bought the bottled honey. And lastly, we dismissed at Four-Face Buddha, we saw that there are many believer pray for the good one, we too. :)

Four Face Buddha

At Chit Lom Station, on the way to Chatuchak

At Chatuchak market, it's still the same as my last visit in 2010, hot and crowded. Really can't stand for this hot weather, very difficult to feel the breathe. After half-an-hour, I'm outside the market, to breathe of fresh air. Many people say that Chatuchak can buy a lot of things, but I just bought a pair of shorts, so little.

We met up with Jek Chee and Pui Kuan at the BTS, then we go to Siam Paragon area for shopping. But Siam Paragon are high consumption place, it's not suitable for us, so we changed to MBK, the place I like the most. Especially the massage, highly recommend "Nice Face Beauty & Massage" located at 3rd Floor, MBK. I have visited for twice, and because it's so comfortable, I fell asleep. Phin Phin even snoring inside the shop. Although I'm asleep, but I heard Phin Phin's snoring, it's loud and so embarrassing. Ops!! paiseh~

Nice Face Beauty & Massage (3rd Floor, MBK)

After a nice massage, we went for our dinner. But our dinner journey is so difficult, use one and half hour to reach to our destination at SamYan. Referred to the map printed, there is one restaurant which is nearby MBK, and we are not familiar with the road, so decides to ask Tuk Tuk to send us there, he firmed that he can bring us to the exact location. But the end, he brought us to the fake Somboon Seafood Restaurant. When we are at the fake restaurant, the Tuk Tuk driver still saying that this restaurant is the one we are looking for, but we also confirmed it's not. F*** him!! Somemore the charges for Tuk Tuk is not cheap, we have pay him for 150baht.

Then we went to the nearest BTS Station to ask about the place, the receptionist guided us to the location which can be reached by BTS. Then we interchanged at Silom Station for MRT, just one station to go to SamYan Station. Walk about 3 minutes, we saw Chamchuri Square, our dinner location is here. And finally, we are here!! What we ordered are the signature dishes from Somboon Seafood. So yummy!!
