Mango Tango Bangkok

Mango Tango Bangkok

 

 

Mango Tango Bangkok is a restaurant specializing in all dishes mango. I’ve always wanted to try this but never had a chance to. I’ve heard so many good things about it. It has a very cool concept and design. Prices are also very affordable and good value for your money.

Kalpapreuk at Central World

 

Kalpapreuk at Central World serves affordable traditional Thai food located on the 7th floor of Central World. I actually read something online mentioning this as an affordable place to get something to eat and it was close by so I figured I should try it.

Citin Pratunam

Citin Pratunam

 

I chose Citin Pratunam primarily for its location in Pratunam. I walked from the airport rail link station to the hotel which is about 2-3 blocks away if you know where you’re going. It helps that I am familiar with the area too. Just outside the hotel is a plethora of street food and also a 7-11 nearby. I stayed here twice. One night to leave my luggage and when I returned from Myanmar for a few nights.

Taking the train from Suvarnabhumi International Airport into the city

Taking the train from Suvarnabhumi International Airport into the city

 

The train from Suvarnabhumi International Airport into the city is hands down is the cheapest way of transport. It costs 40 Baht to get to the last stop. That’s $1.50 or 60 pesos. The station is located on the lower floor of the airport. You can’t miss it, the signs are everywhere.

The Phoenix Airport Hotel Bangkok

The Phoenix Airport Hotel Bangkok

 

So I was looking for cheap accommodations near the airport that had free pick up and drop off at the airport. Basically a cheap place to sleep. I didn’t want to get a taxi so late at night into the city. I found a really good deal at booking.com for the Phoenix Airport Hotel Bangkok and with relatively good reviews. On arrival, I went near exit number 4 on the second floor and asked about The Phoenix hotel among these.

MIASCOR Lounge at NAIA 1 and flying with Thai Airways

 

So NAIA 1 had a bit of a face lift, mostly cosmetic with the new ceilings and carpet. They also have better concessionaires from before which is a good thing. They still have to deal with that leaking ceiling. I guess it’s better than no improvement at all.

Residence Rajtaevee Hotel Bangkok

Residence Rajtaevee Hotel Bangkok

 

I really like the Pratunam area because of the shopping. I could go into any of the malls or market any time of the day. While looking for hotels, budget was the main concern as well as value for money and location. I emailed the Residence Rajtaevee Hotel Bangkok a month prior to ask about their rates. They were really competitive at 1350 Baht a night for a Superior room good for 2 including breakfast at the time of booking. They didn’t require a deposit at the time of booking. I just had to reconfirm a few days prior and show them the email at reception.

Wat Arun

Wat Arun

 

Wat Arun is also known as the Temple of the Dawn. It’s across the river from the Royal Palace Complex and Wat Pho. We had to take the ferry across it for 3 Baht. We went to Wat Pho first but my cousins didn’t want to pay the 100 Baht fee. I think they had Temple Overload in Siem Reap so they just wanted to see one in Bangkok. We chose Wat Arun.

Siam Paragon Food Hall and Cineplex

Siam Paragon Food Hall and Cineplex

 

Siam Paragon is the huge mall next to CentralWorld. It’s accessible by the BTS sky train Siam Station. It was really close to our hotel so we could actually walk to get there or catch the complimentary golf cart on the street of our hotel which we never catch since we are usually impatient to wait for it and it could only fit 4 people maximum. Right in front of it is Siam Square, MBK is at a walkable distance and Siam Center and Siam Discovery Center are different malls next to it. We thought they were all the same and we had to go through parking lots to get to Siam Paragon. Anyway, one of the attractions are the Siam Ocean World. The lower ground floor looks like water.

Terminal 21 Shopping Mall

Terminal 21 Shopping Mall

 

Terminal 21 Shopping Mall is a newly opened mall in Bangkok. It only opened last year on October 2011. It is accessible by BTS sky train and the Metro. There’s an actual foot bridge that directly connects it to the Asok Station. It is also accessible by Metro through the Sukhumvit Station. There are different floor concept on each floor which usually represents a city. We were really hungry so we took the elevator to the 5th Floor for the San Fancisco Pier 21 theme.
