I finally returned to Bangkok after years of not being there. A lot of things have changed since the last time I was there, but I still love it just as much. Our trip to Bangkok was short & sweet, Matthew & I stayed for 3 days 2 nights in the month of June. We thought 3 days was the perfect amount of time to re-visit Bangkok. Since we have both been to Bangkok multiple times before, we wanted the trip to be slower-paced and avoided a lot of the main tourist attractions. If you have never been to Bangkok previously, I would suggest you to stay 4-5 days for your first time. Here is a very short post on a few of the highlights from our trip.
1777 New Petchaburi Rd
We stayed at Lancaster Bangkok in the Sukhumvit area of Bangkok. It was a convenient location as they provide a free shuttle service during the day which drops you off at Asok station, & from there you can take the BTS Sky Train. Without the shuttle service, it’s only a 7 minute walk from the station. If you stay here, I would highly recommend you include the breakfast package during your stay. Their breakfast was so yummy & the food was different everyday! I loved their pool area as well, as it is a rooftop pool which overlooks the city.
I love lounging around in hotels doing nothing, and this was the perfect place to do exactly that.
B Story Café
89, 70 Phayathai Rd
Guys. I have never felt sad while eating or drinking anything. But man, having to finish those lattes broke my heart. I saw this café on Instagram & knew I had to make a trip to get these Thai Iced Teas for myself. While it’s not the best Thai Iced Tea I’ve ever tasted, look how adorable! Worth it for the gram.
Hands & Heart Café
33 Sukhumvit 38 Alley
This minimal café is worth visiting if this aesthetic is up your alley. The drinks we ordered were a Steamed Caramel Milk & a White Chocolate Mocha.
THINGS TO DO
83 Sukhumvit Rd
This experience was so amazing I didn’t even capture a picture because I was too busy enjoying it. We got a 4 hour massage including a foot spa/massage, full body massage, hot stones & a facial massage. This all cost around 1500 baht including tip (around $42USD)! Run to Pimmalai Spa if you’re in Bangkok. Their staff is so lovely, attentive & professional. They’re also exceptional at what they do. I felt light as a feather (emotionally & physically) after my spa treatment.
Asiatique The Riverfront
2194 Charoen Krung Rd
I love this night market because it’s easy to navigate & has everything a shopper addict could ask for. I had a wonderful shopping experience here. They sell everything varying from clothes, candles, incense, snacks, accessories etc. Their bars by the water were also a lovely spot to sit down for happy hour. There is also a food court towards the back of the complex with food to die for. Please excuse our dead eyes. We were so tired haha.
I hope you get the chance to visit Thailand. It’s one of those places you can just go back again and again. Have you ever been to Bangkok? If so, I would love to hear about your experience & where your favourite spots are!2 I Love This! ♡
