You read the title correctly – “2015”. If you’re updated on my social media posts you probably know that I was in Thailand last December, but this entry is about our *last last* visit, which means it’s over a year late, yikes. I finally got around to editing the pictures and vlogs so here goes.
We left for Bangkok on Christmas day and as usual we stayed at the Indra Regent Hotel:
I was looking forward to seeing this Christmas tree again last December but Indra Regent renovated and moved their lobby to the 4th floor
Since it was our first time staying at this hotel with only the three of us, we were wondering what room they would give us. During the past two years we stayed here Mr. Bob gave us huge suites, but we figured since there was one less person this year we would probably just get a regular room. So imagine our surprise when the room he gave us looked pretty much like the suite we used to get the previous years:
We got a two bedroom suite with two bathrooms and a small living room. This is the master’s bedroom
And the other room with the small living room space
I figured I would be staying in the second room since my parents would want the master’s bedroom (it had a bigger bathroom), but they decided I should get that because it would be silly for me to have two beds.
Another reason why my mom preferred the other room was because the four-poster bed in the master’s bedroom is pretty high, which made it a little difficult for them to climb in and out of bed.
That evening we ate dinner which we bought from the airport food court. Afterwards we went out to explore the night market – my favorite part when staying in Thailand
I didn’t really buy anything because the following day was a Saturday and I knew that prices dropped during the weekend. Mostly I just looked around and tried to find the same items during the weekend market :p
During our stay we also signed up for a tour of the floating market and bought tickets for elephant and crocodile shows. The company picked us up at our hotel and took us to a gas station where our tour guide would be meeting us.
Our first stop was the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. My mom was very excited because she’s been wanting to see this for years now:
We had to take a boat to get there of course:
Once we were on the floating market, there was a long line to get on the boats that would take us to the shops, so our guide suggested we walk around first
We bought some coconut candy
And some Thai snacks
