Nothing is more important than life. You will realize the simplicity of that point only when you confront death everyday.

Short Break at Bangkok, Thailand

Well. This trip was planned unexpectedly last 8 months ago with my secondary school buddies. There were many concerns about the place of visits, weight of luggage, seasons( worried about Flood) and so so. Finally, we settled up everything - Bangkok, here we come. 
This was my "n" times visited Bangkok, and our main purpose of this trip is to "eat", "relax", and "massage". Regarding to place of visit?? Not so important for us. hehe 

As usual, all met at one place, go by ONE CAR lor. The reminder for all travelers, make sure your Passport is valid, always keep by oneself or pass it all to one person. Luckily, I was the one who appointed to keep it for all. Some photo flashing during the waiting time - airport. 

Passport with Boarding Pass

First SS :) 
It was about approximately 2 hours of journey, arrived Don Muang International Airport, Bangkok, Thailand. This was my first time landed at DMIA, Bangkok, usually at  Sukhumvit airport, Bangkok. Well, really shocked because DMIA is the old airport with really "nothing" to see when we arrived. (As planned, was thought of  to buy simcard, ended up - not much choices.)

We decided to take cab directly to our hotel - save time. It took around an hours plus to reach our hotel, The Berkerley Hotel Pratunam, 5 stars Hotel. Personally, I was very satisfied with this high evaluated hotel, no matter in the sector of room comfortably, breakfast, facilities and conveniences. Just a short briefing about the hotel in general. 

1. Big spaces guest room
2. Clean toilet
3. Nice city view from guest room
4. 10 minutes walking distance to MRT station.
5. Surrounded with Platinum mall, centra world mall and night markets. (5 to 10 mins)
6. 5 minutes walking distance, you able to grab many SPA/massage center.

*** The only limitation which I still acceptable : The hotel break into 2 tower, North/Main. If your guest room is assigned to North tower, you're required to take the lift from main tower to 7th floors, then walk a 5 mins to north tower to continue your guest room floor. That's really nothing but if you're exhausted from shopping, you will feel that is one of the inconveniences.

Extra spaces for your luggage

The first thing you need to do once settling everything after check-in hotel - PORK burger. Please try the pork burger at any 7 eleven outlet at Bangkok. Let's the pictures to continue my writing.

Well. we spent our time by walking the Kao Shan Road, as known as backpacker paradise. There are so "modern" and western free style, and you will observed majority of foreigners are there around, this is some "surprised" when we turning around the road. Massage there? Yes, and so sort of CHEAP - around 200 baht for Thai Massage if i not mistaken.

Besides, we went to some places which recommended by Facebook. Well, I would like to declare that - NOT all the places is as nice as what Facebook/Youtuber mentioned. Or probably is really depend on individual. As for me, quite a bit of disappointed.
