5D4N Bangkok Trip Day One

24th March – 28th March 2015


Decided to just separate the recent Bangkok Trip posts
Because I have no idea how, but the 3 of us managed to take over 700 pictures


Got to the airport at 7ish for our one-way Jetstar flight departing to Bangkok!
This time round with Trev!

Hyper bunny batt went flat after we touched down in Bangkok
Recharging while on our way to our hotel



Choice of hotel for this trip was GAAM Hotel located at Pratunam Petchaburi Soi 15.
Close to the well known Centrepoint Pratunam Hotel

It was pretty new, centralized location in Pratunam
(though I now kinda prefer staying within Siam area)
&&&
its very affordable!
4 nights for $250!


We were granted an early check-in despite the strict policy of
No early check-in & No late check out pasted on the counter
weehee guess we were lucky

Bed was huge and comfy,
Aircon works well, Hairdryer was provided,
hotel staffs were really friendly and had a good command of english
Lots of massage parlors along the road that leads to the hotel


However it was a little too cramped
The plug for the hairdryer was not near the mirror,
Lighting in the room extremely tricky when it comes to putting makeup on
Walls were really thin cuz we could hear the neighbors loud and clear


Went out for lunch
@ Saeb Saeb wanton mee
Trev’s hooked. He wanted it for 4 days straight

Tried the foot massage at one of the massage parlor near our hotel
Bad choice.

I was so looking forward to finally getting a good foot massage
But they were really packed that day so the masseuse was PROBABLY exhausted

How would I describe the massage there?


Like literally bua kaya
just taking the cream to bua on my feet thats all
No kneading no strength no force no nothing
I thought the most dreadful experience was to have a masseuse who kneads and massages too hard
But I think having to sit through this bua kaya massage is much worse

I’d recommend Number One thai massage @ Soi 15 instead
More on that in next post
