Wat Arun

Wat Arun is also known as the “Temple of the Dawn” because of its beautiful reflection from the early morning light. (We skipped our tour to this place since my cousins were itching to go to the market, so I just took a glance of the temple during our river cruise and snapped this photo from the Tha Chang Pier)

Chao Phraya River Cruise

To start our tour, we took a cab going to Si Phraya Pier and experience the river cruise on our way to Tha Chang Pier, our drop off point to the Grand Palace. (Our initial plan was to take the cab directly to the Grand Palace and will cross the river from Tha Tien Pier to Wat Arun for river cruise experience, but the taxi driver [who deliberately or not] dropped us to Si Phraya Pier instead)

Fare is 15THB per head.

Take a Nap Hotel

I researched for a place that is easily accessible to Lumphini Park (where we will catch the casino bus going to Cambodia early next day). Cheap accommodation was part of my checklist and found Take a Nap suited my requirements.

Take a Nap is a budget hotel which is walking distance to Lumphini Park and Patphong Area. They have unique rooms with different themes. Room rates are inclusive of free breakfasts (which unfortunately we’re not able to avail since breakfast is serve from 7-10AM but we left the hotel at 5AM).

End of vacation theme for our room.

Around the world theme for my cousin’s room.

Both rooms cost 800THB for 2 pax/night.

Thailand

What makes Thailand special? Thailand is known as the only country in Southeast Asia that was not colonized by any foreign entity, so their customs and traditions are very much intact.

What made our trip extra special? Our trip was scheduled at the peak of the Thai Protest (that ended in a coup d’état). Together with my travel hubby and two cousins, our patience, wit and determination were put into a test as most of our itinerary and route were changed as initially planned.

Gateway to Thailand is via the Suvarnabhumi Airport.

To start with, we were supposed to ride the free shuttle going to Victory Monument (Bus#551) then will take a cab going to Silom, but we were informed by one of my cousin’s colleague that there’s a heavy traffic along the way because of the demonstration. So we opted to ride the Airport Rail Link to Phaya Thai Station then connect ride from Phaya Thai to Sala Daeng Station, which is a half kilometer away from the hotel where we will be staying for the night.
