Mom and I decided to tour around the city as for our day 3. Theme parks, zoo and museum visit are on top of our list.Woke up not so early to prepare for another adventure in Bangkok. Since most Thai's can't speak English, we had a hard time asking for directions, bus number and some information that might be helpful as we tour around Bangkok. And so Day 3 is exciting as it seems to be.
From Ratcha Damnoen Nok road bus station, we rode bus#47 that will pass in Siam Paragon and Siam Discovery. Bus fare costs 6.50 baht. We first went to Siam Discovery where Madame Tussauds can be found. I forgot the price but they have packages like Madame Tussauds + Ocean world + 3D movie but it depends on the package that you will be getting. Madame Tussauds is a wax museum where you can see celebrities made of wax but I tell you it looks like real, very deceiving. In Hongkong, there's also a wax museum but I forgot the name. Going back, so we decided to check Ocean world first before deciding what package to get. Ocean world entrance fee is 900 baht and it is located at Siam Paragon which is beside Siam Discovery. There's a shuttle available for transfer from Siam Discovery to Siam Paragon which is for free.
After exploring Ocean world and Madame Tussauds, we went to Platinum Fashion mall, which is considered as the largest wholesale fashion mall in Bangkok, I don't know if it's true but that's what one of the Thai's told me. It's like much improve St. Francis square in Manila. From Siam Paragon, we rode a taxi to Platinum mall (pronounced as Platinam). Paid 50 baht which is very reasonable. The mall closes around 6 or 7pm.
As a confessed shopaholic, 7pm shopping hours is way too early for me. So we headed out to Indra Plaza and Pratunam (pronounced as Patunam) which is walking distance from Platinum mall. We roam around the area up until 11PM and since we are not familiar with the place, we decided to take a cab back to Siam Paragon since there's a bus on the other side of Siam Paragon that will pass by to Chakrapong road. We were told we need to look out bus#15 (non A/C). Fare costs 13 baht from the other side of Siam Paragon to Chakrapong road. Got home safe and sound.
Thinking... What lies ahead for us on Day 4? Enjoy the pictures!! More pics to be uploaded soon for Day 3!
