Bangkok Diaries Day 1

Me and my mom were able to avail PAL's Fly All You Can in Asian Countries. Travelling period starts from August to November for 8 weeks travel time. The first country that I wanted to visit is Bangkok because of cheap thrills and of course shopping! And so, finally the moment of truth, last September 01, we had our short vacation in Bangkok, Thailand.

We arrived at the Suvarnabhumi Airport around 2PM. From the airport to Phaya Thai station, it costs 45 baht each. From Phaya Thai, we negotiated a "tuktuk" to bring us to our hostel and we got a deal of 150 baht to Chakrapong road (pronounced as Jakrapong). We stayed at Khaosan Guesthouse and Rainbow hostel; paid 1,080 baht for 3 nights (electric fan only with private bathroom and free use of locker with wifi). We walked nearby our area and we had our dinner in Mcdo, sad to say they have no rice for their chicken meals, so we ordered value meal nuggets (10pcs) at 159 baht and you have to add 10 baht if you want to upsize your drink and fries. We went back to our hostel after roaming the place and slept early to prepare for the next day's itinerary.

Passport and plane ticket's are all set

While waiting to check in our baggage at Mactan Cebu International Airport

My travel buddy, my mom. =)

On board! Our itinerary is Cebu-Manila then Manila-Bangkok

Waiting in vain. Ninoy Aquino International Airport is quite amazing. I love how big and how clean the airport is from the inside. They have laptop stations, free use of computers with wifi, and a mini Duty Free, shopping before boarding time.

 Vanity moments while waiting to be onboard.

I had Braised chicken and Pepsi. What I love about Philippine Airlines is that they serve food (lunch/dinner) for international flight and snacks for domestic flight (crackers and peanuts). 

Dessert after lunch! =) 

Hurray! Touchdown B-A-N-G-K-O-K! Waiting for our baggage. I think Bangkok is one of the most busiest airport in the world, jump packed with locals and foreigners from all walks of life coming from different races, speaking different languages.

Upon arrival at Bangkok, express bus weren't available at that time and since we didn't avail the airport pick up from our hostel, we decided to take the train to the city.

The Suvarnabhumi Airport map pronounced as "Suwanabhoom". They have Thailand maps given to the tourists and foreigners for free. You can ask from the Tourist information counters or at the stalls within the airport. 

State Railway of Thailand. You can also ask Thailand map from them. This is Suvarnabhumi airport station. From the airport to Phaya Thai costs 45 baht. 

In Manila, ours look like an ATM card, but theirs is different. It's circular and it has time limit. I believe it's only good for 19 minutes and after 19 minutes, it will expire.

And lastly, my airport/outfit shot
