Where I stayed
The Heritage Baan Silom Hotel Bangkok
Read my review - 3/5 stars

Flag of Thailand  ,
Thursday, February 24, 2011

It was our last day in Bangkok. Our flight was scheduled in the afternoon. So with extra time we had plus the advantage of staying in the area that have almost everything for travelers could ever wanted, my friend and I started walking the main road at the Baan Silom area.

We had pretty good breakfast at the hotel before heading out. I was looking for some decorations and souvenirs for people back home. To be honest, most of my cash is already spent on pieces of Thai silk two days earlier. Also, I was planning for cosmetics shopping at the airport later. Hence, my spending capability was pretty much limited.

Morning is the best time to experience some unique features of Bangkok, especially with the locals. With wide pedestrian walkways alongside of the main road, small stalls flourishes in the morning selling pretty much everything, from flowers to food to clothes and kitchen nick-knacks. Shop of the shops were already in business as early as 8 am. In between commercial lines lots, the smaller alleys were celebrated with temporary market - offering fresh foods and cooking ingredients for locals to buy. 

As I was walking alongside the road, I noticed the happy faces of the locals interacting among each other. It was a typical workday for them, but it didn't stop them from being friendly and comfy with each other.

Although it was a rather small sized hotel, the ambiance and service provided was beyond our expectation. It had black and white theme - an odd choice - but it had given such comfort and secluding feeling for both my friend and I during our stay at the hotel. 

Overall experience was great because our objective to coming to Bangkok was just spending quality girl's time. We had good times in bed (I meant sharing the room and laughing ourselves to the jokes and chats we had), good times partying, great shopping spree as well as nice time walking around the city for the sake of experiencing Bangkok city. The hotel was lovely and we would recommend it to others, especially for newly-weds couples who are on a budget tight.
