Thailand 2011: S&P Love and Suvarnabhumi Airport

I wish I could fly to Bangkok just to eat this crab fried rice at S&P and then go home. There is a branch at Suvarnabhumi Airport, maybe I can just disembark and eat then go home to Manila.

Vacay in BKK, Thailand: Part Three

A visit to Bangkok would not be complete without checking out Chatuchak Weekend Market. This market is one of the most recommended shopping destinations in Thailand, due to the wide range of items sold there at competitive prices. Like most shopping areas, Chatuchak requires patience and haggling skills.

But before trooping to Chatuchak, we had breakfast at the Indra Regent Hotel. The buffet breakfast they offer daily is all-American fare.

Breakfast at the Indra Regent Hotel

Two sunny sides, ham, cheese, chicken hotdog and French toast

Scouring good finds under the heat of the sun is something we have anticipated, so we left the hotel immediately after breakfast. Chatuchak is indeed big! We managed to find a map but we just decided to look around and see what we can find. I was starting to lose hope with it early on.

Chatuchak

Chatuchak craze!

I am not a good tiangge-type shopper because I hate small spaces packed with people. Much to my surprise, I found a stall that sells stylish pants at a whopping price of 170 baht per piece (if you buy a couple of pieces from them). Woohoo!

A big pair of pants hang in one of the stalls in Chatuchak. I am loving the lens flare!

Noon came and we were still there, checking out every soi1. Chatuchak indeed, has it all: modern furniture, home decor, accessories, etc.There was a stall there that sells pork balls and hotdogs—the sauce is so delicious! At first it wasn’t spicy at all until it settles in your mouth. Crazy chili!

We decided to just get back to our hotel. On one floor of our hotel is the Indra Food Square. Similar to the Siam Paragon food court, they make use of a prepaid card system for paying meals.
