We had always been wanted to have a holiday at Bangkok due to its close proximity to Malaysia. Nevertheless, the plan has never been materialized due to the high airfare price (AirAsia) even though with constant monitoring. Until there was once, roughly one month before the day of our travelling to Bangkok, we managed to secure a return flight from Penang to Bangkok - Don Mueang (including airport taxes, fuel surcharge but excluding luggage) for RM368 per person! It was pretty affordable in our opinion, and without much hesitation, there forged our sudden holidays!
Though Bangkok is well known as a Paradise of Shopping, we have an itinerary with a minimum of shopping and visiting to the well-known tourist attractions such as Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, statues, museums or parks. We try to make it as a leisure and spontaneous holiday without a rigid plan, allowing much flexibility but still pre-planned a list on the few places we intend to go. Eventually, it is meant to be a short escape from work.
Our trip itinerary as follows, we will describe each of the places or days in a different blog post and you may click on it for a more detailed sharing:
