Hi po sa lahat! punta kme friends ko bangkok this march. 3 kme. I'm having some thoughts kung avail ba namin ung funtours ng cebupac or pareserve na lang sa hotel and find our way there.. adventure ba... hehhe..... ung bangkok-pattaya na funtour kasi ok na sana kaso pag un inavail namin weekend nasa pattaya kame which means di kame makakapunta sa chakutak market (tama ba?)at weekend lang yun open....

sa tingin nyo ba ok lang na magpareserve na lang sa hotel tapos kame na bahala sa buhay namin dun? heheh... is bangkok tourist friendly like hongkong? i mean ung transpo ba ok... sa hongkong kasi di ka mawawala dahil superb and transpo nila and ang daming maps... hay.... help naman po kung ano dapat gawin... nakabili na kame ticket cebupac eh... alanganin pa ung time ng dating and alis dun... yun lang kasi ung flight nila... :help: maraming salamat! :salute:

i spent new year at bangkok. red eye rin ang flight sched namin sa cebu pacific. anyway, we did not avail of a packaged tour dun kase most hotels naman offer tour packages at friendly rates, pwede mo pa sabihin kung gusto mo whole day or half day tour lang. yung tour na kinuha namin was a half-day tour lang at pwede pa mapili kung ano mga gusto mo puntahan pag limited na yung time kase solo namin yung tour guide. definitely don't miss chatuchak. and while you're in bangkok, try to experience phat pong hehehe sa transpo naman, walang problem kase ok naman ang mga taxi drivers nila dun, you can also take the train. don't forget to get a map from the bangkok airport, free naman yun at talagang binibigay sa mga tourists :) hope i was able to help.

ung suan lum ok din.. night bazaar un.. pic nung ung naka attach..

ok sa chatuchak.. pwede ka talagang tumawad.. hehe..

i bought 1 large djembe there.. nung uwian na pahirapan kasi ayaw kong ipa baggage kasi baka masira and sobrang laki naman para sa overhead compartment nila..

tip lang pala.. act na parang local lang kayo para mas makatawad pa kayo ng mas mababa.. kami kasi nun hinde kami nagsasalita or nagpapahalata na tourists.. makikipagusap na lang kami pag makikipagtawaran na.. hehe.. that worked for us real great!

hehehe..

haha nasubukan ko rin mag suan lum... hehe the trick is to go for 50% discount agad if you really want to buy something then walk away pag hindi binigay agad... the tendency is for the seller to give you the item na at the price you want! that worked for us! :p

about hotels, ok naman kahit hindi 4 pr 5-star hotel kau mag-stay, you're going shopping anyway for the most part. anytime talaga kase dun meron kang pwede puntahan to shop, kahit madaliling araw na! we stayed at baiyoke sky, the tallest hotel in bangkok. ok dun. you can book online ata and may mga agency dito pero its better if you talk directly to the hotel staff na lang.

(click "thanks" na lang po) thank you!
