[Day 3] Bangkok Chinatown & SabX2 Wanton Noodles

It had being more than ten years since our last visit to Bangkok Chinatown. But at a glance the surroundings are still looking familiar perhaps just with a few added modern walking streets and busy traffic of motorbikes and tuk-tuks. During our visit we explore some of the streets along Yaowarat Road; get some traditional Chinese sausages, Chinese herbs and also drop by the wholesale & wet markets selling seasonal fruits, dried goods, fresh seafood, cooked food, handicraft, clothing and many more.

Popular Thai Street Food

Bangkok is a beautiful city as well as food paradise with variety of local and international cuisines from Japan, Korea, Vietnam and etc. For us we  love to explore their street food stalls which offers authentic local Thai food from snacks, beverages, main till desserts that features their food cultures.  In Bangkok you can easily spot food vendors along the streets or outside shopping malls selling fresh cut fruits, beverages, fried noodles and more.

In this post I would like to share some of the common street or local food in Bangkok which we found during our last visit. And if you are keen to visit or try there is a stretch of street food stalls outside Central World Mall which draw tourists attention while passing through the walkway to Pratunam Mall.

[Day 5] Bangkok International Airport (Suvarnabhumi)

After enjoying four days in Bangkok, it's time for us to go back to Singapore. Although this trip might be short as compared to our initial plan of 7 days but everyone of us are satisfy with the itinerary. And I really miss all the delicious Thai cuisines and street snacks that we have tried, and not to forget my favourite Mango Sticky Rice (photo above) which I have it every day during our trip.

Honestly revisiting Bangkok after 5 years does bought back many memories from our first trip. Like the Siam Ocean World, Chatuchak Weekend Market and Mahboonkrong (MBK), they are still looking good with some familial shops and eateries when we last visited them..

[Day 2] Health Land and Mahboonkrong (MBK)

After spending the whole morning at Chatuchak Weekend Market till almost 1.00pm, we decided to visit Health Land which is located near Asok Station (about 10 minutes walk) where we could pampered ourselves with Foot Reflexology And Body Massage to re-fill our energy level and continue the shopping spree. Furthermore, foot reflexology is one of the common spa services that tourists love and it could be easily found at most shopping malls, shops along the streets and even in their night/weekend bazaar too. And the face is it really cost much cheaper (around half the price or less) then what we usually paid in Singapore.
