Bangkok : Day 2

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.

IMG_0589Which is so much better as compared to the comfortable little room for the first night. 

IMG_0591The 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.

IMG_0597_??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 :)

IMG_0848The place is beautiful, its not expensive as well. Less than RM 200 per night for a very decent room. Loving it.

IMG_0849Tada…. My room

IMG_0850

IMG_0853Wide, spacious.. and absolutely stunning. The bell boy will send your luggage, so no worries about that.

IMG_0854The 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.

IMG_0600Went 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.

IMG_0611Heading to Wat Arun to pass time. Not my fav type of temple but still not bad nah…
