Merry Christmas everyone!
I want to share with you pictures I took of my Bangkok trip. I went with my colleagues for 5 glorious days of shopping and eating. :)
The last time I went to Bangkok was in 2006. After the unrest going on there, I didn't feel it was safe to go. When my colleagues mooted the idea of going I jumped at the chance. This was a vacation solely for myself.

Pardon the messy room, I was too excited about everything that by the time I got to taking pictures of the room, it is a little messed up. We stayed at Grand Sukhumvit Hotel which is just a 5 minute walk away from Nana BTS station. The location is very ideal as it is just 3 stops away from the main shopping district. Prices are also affordable.

Taking the BTS is a much faster way to get around but it is slightly more expensive. It is best to get the Rabbit store value card so you don't have to queue every time you want a ticket. The trains are crowded. You need to push your way in and squeeze to come out. Not a good place to bring your baby strollers. The taxis are cheaper but during peak periods you can get stuck in a jam for an hour even though your destination is nearby.

Platinum Mall is a good place for bargain hunters. There are 5 levels of women's fashion, 1 level dedicated to children's fashion and accessories and a ginormous food court. The clothes are cheap but you aren't allowed to try them. So what you buy is a hit or miss. I bought 3 dresses for about SGD$40. But in the end they were not good buys because they weren't not made well and didn't fit my body. :( I did get great accessories and clothes for both DS and DH. Honestly you need to be slim to buy the clothes there.
Terminal 21 is a relatively new shopping mall with an interesting concept. Every level has a city theme so many photo taking opportunities. There are a total of 9 levels of shopping.
Here are some more pictures I took of Terminal 21.
I fell I love with this ultra blingy gown. So gorgeous!
You know what is the best part of a holiday, coming home.
Have you been to Bangkok before, what do you love about the place?
