Slept at @Hua Lamphong Hotel was good! The room are nice and clean. But, no breakfast are provided. So, you need to have a place to get a breakfast with extra cost! As a backpackers, It is better to get a place that are cheap, safe, clean, have WIFI and include breakfast! I would suggest a place with below than 10 USD (dorm) per night is excellent if they can provide these.
-MRT Cha Tu Chak Park-
Dont eat at the Muslim Stall here, if Im not mistaken the stall name Saman. I think the price is nuts!
The food we ate, (pictures here) is 580 Baht.
-580 Baht, I think this is expensive if we compare to other restaurant-
Around lunch hour, we head back to our hotel, this time, we change our place to another guesthouse. Baan Hua Lamphong Guest House. This gueshouse is much cheaper. 690 Baht, with A/C and private bathroom, breakfast included and free WIFI. So far, I think this place is just okay. But, it is better to get another gueshouse. If you check from the internet, the review for this gueshouse is so bad. I might admit some of the reviews are overrated.
After check-in here, we went out to another place called Siam Paragon! This place is awesome! Siam Paragon is a luxury mall. You may found the Jimmy Choo, PRADA, LV, HERMES ... etc ... I wish that I could have a lot of money to shop here! :(
We had our dinner here for the cost of 300 Baht and it is cheaper than the one we ate the Cha Tu Chak Weekend Market. This stall is Halal but then, after eating, we found out that the plate, spoon and fork are mix up with other Non-Halal stuff!
-300 Baht at Siam Paragon-
As a backpacker, Siam Paragon is just a place to hang out, maybe for a few hours. Here, you may see the urban life of a youngster and/or the life of the fabulous lane for the rich in Bangkok. There is a night market near to the BTS Station here.
How to get to Siam Paragon?
The nearest station is Siam by BTS (Skytrain). Well, for those who are familiar with the city-train in your home country, you may find on how to get here easily without map!
What are the attraction of Siam Paragon?
1. Madame Taussuds (Salah eja eh)
2. Siam Ocean World
3. Famous Brand Outlet, you name it!
4. Street Night Market near to this station
I remembered when I was in Shenzhen, China, I think the Grand Central Station there is much more luxury than here! You may see the Famous and Well-Known Outlet as an individual lot. Pergh!
