Bangkok (2.3.2012) – Second Day. As promised, i’ve decided to pamper myself throughout this very short weekend bangkok trip. Woke up damn early on the second day and check in to my new stay — Aetas Hotel.
Which is so much better as compared to the comfortable little room for the first night.
The hotel is clean and spacious. They have really good service and the receptionists and the bell boy are polite and extremely helpful. Enjoying my stay a lot at Aetas Hotel.
One thing about Aetas Hotel is.. the location is less convenient.. less convenient as in its not in a walking distance to any popular places and its recommended to take cabs. However, service outdo the location. So im fine with it. And the cab fare is cheap in bangkok as well 🙂
The place is beautiful, its not expensive as well. Less than RM 200 per night for a very decent room. Loving it.
Tada…. My room
Wide, spacious.. and absolutely stunning. The bell boy will send your luggage, so no worries about that.
The bathrooom is BIG enough. I guess it would be a good choice for newly married or even loving couples.
Decided to head over to some floating market… Theres two types. One is the nearer one maybe around half an hour journey and one is the tourist type : Damnoen Saduak Floating market which will take around more or less 2 hours.
Went to the nearer one for a look and its a total waste of time. Just go straight to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market if you want to.
Heading to Wat Arun to pass time. Not my fav type of temple but still not bad nah…
Please wear long pants to all temples, if not you will end up like me.
Came across this local stall just few alley across Wat Arun. It was surprisingly crowded so decided to give it a try.
Old school Pepsi! *slurps*
Nobody in the stall seems to know how to speak or understand english, so back to the basic… pointing at what the other tables are having.
This is what the majority is having..
Pork Balls!! with kinda sweet and spicy sauce
Simple vermicelli soup. Their specialty. Came with clear broth.
and spicy broth
The portion is small but its definitely worth the taste.
Add a lil bit of sugar and their local spicy and it will definitely brings the bowl of heaven to the next level.
SLurps! ready to go!
If you do not fancy noodles or vermicelli, they have kueh tiao aka flat noodles as well.
End my satisfying lunch with a plate of local satay.
Proceed on to Grand Palace but unfortunately it was closed for visiting. Oh well..
