BKK Day 1 & 2

Finally got time to blog on my BKK post ._. shall split into 2 blog posts for easy reading. this is my 2nd overseas trip tgt w/baby & i can't wait for our next upcoming one alrdy :')

Bought our flight tickets + hotel through a StreetDeal promo for 1pax "$195NETT for 3D2N Bangkok Escape + Flights (includes taxes)! Stay 2 nights at The Ecotel (near Platinum Mall) + 2-way Flights via Jetstar Airways". & since we are planning for a 4D3N trip, we topped up additional $114 (for 2pax). so all in all, everything costs only $252/pax for a 4days holiday to BKK (flights/w taxes + hotel stay). 

A rather not bad deal isn't it?? 

BUT our flights & hotel din come easy :| purchasing this deal doesn't means that everything is left to the agency to settle everything for us, we still have to "fight" with other customers, who also bought this deal, in manually choosing the best flight timing on our desired travel dates & also being able to stay in one of their "BEST" hotel choices - The Ecotel (a nightmare to baby) >< we've to go through alot of liaising with the agency early in the morning when we can start booking our flights, & also making sure we do not land up in staying in some ulu scary hotel options. just all these took up baby & my precious half day. 

GOODNESS!! Lesson learnt:  Cheap stuffs don't come easy!! Shall not purchase any travel deals anymore, unless it is SUPER DUPER DUPER GOOD or it is to Batam. *big SIGHZZZ*

Got our money exchanged at Raffles Place - The Arcade. There are many money exchangers located from the 1st & 2nd you can slowly compare & find the best offered rates. Exchange rate was rather good at 25 (S$4 to 100 baht). 2 of the money exchangers i went:-

Sawadeka Day 1

 went with 2 hand-carry luggage each

 the indian-ish hotel :|
din even bother to take a picture of our room.

room: non-carpeted floors, stained towels, bed & walls; 
no full-length mirror, safe-box is chargeable (WTH??); 
no kettle = no hot water; 
shower is not hot enough & it has kettle boiling sound when showering;
not spacious;
aside from that, they have free wi-fi service available in the room though.
daily bkfast: bkfast was worse having a loft of bread.
the WORST bkfast i ever seen >< 
imagine dried up sunny side up, all indian-ish food,
cornflakes w/stale milk & the doesn't look edible sausages.
we walked in twice, & came out within 1min.

 straight away SHOP SHOP SHOP @Platinum Fashion Mall,
after we are done with checking in.
no lunch since we'd a really heavy bkfast @CBTL before our flight.
not forgetting this bkfast, which land us sprinting to our plane.
10 mins before gate closing -.-
i don't even hv time for duty free :(
