Yoohoo! the post that u guys are waiting for is here! my very first travelogue for the year of 2012~!
We went for our company retreat to bangkok this time round (last year was hong kong) and i was really excited about it! it’s been more than 2 years since i last went bkk and i seriously have no idea why it took me 2 years later to head back there again! it’s like a shopping, massaging heaven for all! u can read about my 1st trip to bangkok over here (*ps: that’s where i first got really drunk! lolx)
We met up early at the airport for check-in as we are taking a morning flight over with Thai Airways the last time i took was like freaking long, during my sec school days when we went Chiangmai for our field trip…
Had a light breakfast at ya kun before boarding
Boarded the plane! ;D
First time traveling with my 2 new colleagues
breakfast onboard.. crabmeat fried rice which taste… meh~~~
You can purchase your TOURIST sim card over here for unlimited internet access on your phone! ;D no internet connection for me will die ok~!
Now, you dun really have to take a cab from the airport to the city. With the super convenient express train, you can reach city within 17mins! One way ticket will cost you 90 baht and for 2 way return ticket, it’s only 150 baht!
super spacious and it’s very very similar to the one in hong kong!
we will need to cross over to the BTS station to take a train to our hotel location…
Kpop is super hot in bangkok.. everywhere u get to see kpop start like super junior, 2pm, etc on trains, advertisement board…
here we are! we will be spending our 2 nights here at VIE HOTEL! 5 star hotel ok~ dun play play ah~
been having really HIGH expectation for this hotel after reading reviews online about it. and true enough, it didn’t disappoint me at all!!! Would definitely loved to be back at this hotel if i visit bkk again!
