Airticket & accomodation booked within the month of December, quite rush and not with the best price. But it’s the first time for both of us to spend over New Year at another country.
Departure:Waiting at departure gate, flight was delayed due to some vip in Bangkok airport. Luckily, wasn’t taking too long, about 30mins, i think. By the time, we reached is already 1.30pm local time.
We are so hungry, thus we took the lunch in the airport before going to the hotel. Choosen the S&P restaurant, wasn’t that nice, the portion quite small too.
Thereafter we head to the Airport Rail Link to go to our hotel, Siam City Hotel is near to the Phaya Thai Station. The airport rail link is nice to take, if you don’t have too much luggage and the hotel is conveniently located near to the station or transferred from bts. Only 6 stop, took about 30 minutes, it costs only 45baht per person, cheap! Lucky, our luggage not that many, else would cry, cuz all staircases.
Check-in the hotel only found out I have made a wrong booking, book the room for 1 person instead of 2. Haiz, end up got to pay more. Our room is at another wing, 9th room. Room are quite comfortable and good price & good location. The swimming pool, spa, gym located at another wing. Our package doesn’t come with breakfast. Free wifi available at Lobby area only. My colleague borrows me the thai sim card, so we can use that for surf net, haha, no need to pay extra to the hotel.
After get some rest, we took BTS to national stadium, began our journey at MBK, nice christmas lighting around that area. We went to Naraya for the shopping first, all sort of various design. Thereafter, we walk to Siam Discovery Centre, Siam Paragon. We ended stopped by at Siam Paragon for dinner. Basement eating area was so packed, so much of choice also. We decided to take our queue number at Fuji restaurant, we tried it previously at Phuket last year. After waited for some times, finally it’s our turn, quickly order food, most of the set meal cost around 150~200 baht, cheap and much tastier than the one we had it in Phuket.
Grab some snacks and toiletry at the super market, then we walk around the Siam Square night market area. Try the bbq squid at road stall, very nice with sauces, spicy and sour.
Thereafter, we went back hotel with the goods..
