Bangkok Trip - Day 1

“Sawadee Kha”...
Went to Thailand again but this time is Bangkok.
A 5days 4nights trip with my brother and mom.
We booked flight tickets ourselves, booked hotel online and do searching ourselves about what to play, do and eat in Bangkok. (Okay, I lied... >.< It's all done by my lovely bro... must give lots of credit for all his precious findings )

Depart around 4.30pm from Penang International Airport and reach Suvarnabhumi International Airport around 7pm.

Bought the airport rail link tickets (red plastic coins), hop in the airport rail link from Suvarnabhumi International Airport to the Makkasan City Air Terminal and interchange with MRT blue line (Phetchaburi Station).
The WORST part of the interchange is ---------
you need to walk a longgggggggggg way through the dark old railway roads, cross the busy traffic roads, walk along the road side with many stray dogs and only you will reach the Pherchaburi MRT station.
(so I suggested those people who wanted to go to the city to take teksi from Makkasan station)
Interchange again until we reached BTS Chit Lom.

When we reached BTS Chit Lom, we trusted the source provided by the hotel and stupidly believe that we can count on the map provided. Spended few hours to find the location of the Hotel by foot. (which sounds so stupid, we should take the taxi instead =.=)
We also tried to take the teksi and tuk-tuk after giving up to find the place ourself, but it seems that the attempt was pointless as they also do not know where the Hotel is located.
After asking a few local Thai people, we finally found Ecotel Hotel, Bangkok!
Phew!... wasted the whole night and that ends my first day.
Anyway, the hotel room and toilet are clean and comfy, still satisfy with the room rate regardless the location.
(Only get the chance to eat 7eleven's pork burger for my dinner.... sounds so pathetic huh? )
