I’m back with more details about my Bangkok trip and more hangouts in the Land of Smiles to recommend!
A and I checked in to our second hotel for this trip!
I first read about MADUZI Hotel on the internet, and I was blown away by the decor in this hotel,
especially their unique bath tubs in all of their rooms!
This hotel also views the privacy of their hotel guests importantly.
There is no typical check-in counter in this hotel, all paper work are done in your rooms.
And the moment you enter the hotel, it just feels like home!
There is no crowd around any counters, you don’t see a lot of guests walking around too
because there is only slightly more than 40 rooms in there.
The hotel do not take guest reservations over the counter, so only prior reservations are accepted.
The gates to the hotel are almost always closed too, so you don’t get random strangers streaming in and out.
I like it!
We were allocated a room on the top floor.
When we entered the lift, we were very fascinated!
The lift was lit with red light, and the buttons in the lift spelt MADUZI.
Once we enter the room, we were greeted by a cool looking coffee machine and fresh rambutans to welcome us!
The room has a very special shape – shaped like a huge ‘C’.
At first, we thought the room was a little small, but every time we turn a corner, we get a new surprise!
I love the room!
It’s also super awesome that the room has a work corner with a printer meant for the guests!
The other most awesome thing is THE FREAKING BED!
I think it is the BIGGEST bed I have ever seen!
It is so big that when we run and jump on the bed, we still cannot touch any one end of the bed.
It really is very very big!
I think it’s a King-king of something. Heh!
All of their rooms are non-smoking rooms, so for people who hates rooms that reek of smoke when you enter it,
this is the best man! 🙂
There is also a smoking corner in every level for the guests, so it wasn’t too bad for us.
My favourite part of this room, however, is the bathroom!
It’s spacious and bright with a super long mirror so A and I
will never have to squeeze to stand in front of a small mirror anymore!
The infinity bath tub is very special too.
The water comes from the ceiling eh!
We tried the breakfast at MADUZI too!
I love the restaurant, especially the shelves of books between every table.
Yummy to the max!
And it’s time to set out for some shopping and more good food!
Other than the usual eating and shopping, one of the must-go places in Bangkok is definitely the Erawan Shrine too.
It is the first time I went to the shrine with A and it was also my first time hiring the dancers in there.
Erawan Shrine is right next to Chit Lom BTS station by the way!
Regarding the dancers in this shrine, I heard some stories about
Nicholas Tse’s mother Deborah Li dancing nude in this shrine before.
It was said that she promised to dance naked before the Gods if she were to get famous.
Eventually, she became really well-known but didn’t go back to do what she promised.
She then became really ill and couldn’t get better despite medical help.
So in the end, she went back to Erawan Shrine and got the entire shrine enclosed so she could dance naked.
And she recovered.
Be careful what you promise in front of the Gods man!
This is another case I found online, although this is not at the Erawan Shrine,
it was also about a lady dancing naked in front of the Four Faced Buddha.
From the shrine, we also toured the malls around the area.
I heard about Greyhound cafe and I was too excited to bring A for a good lunch there!
You can google Greyhound in Bangkok if you wanna try the food there too.
The fusion cuisine there is really really good!
Here are some of the food we ordered!
I love the tom yum soup here because it comes with ravioli too! What a great combination!
The Thai iced milk tea is absolutely yummy too!
The ice cubes are actually all tea cubes, so even when the tea cubes start melting,
your tea will be kept cold and will not become diluted at all!
Desserts are at Vanilla Brassiere which is just at the ground level in Siam Paragon.
I love the crepes here!
I wish Singapore had such good crepes and priced at such affordable prices too. *complains*
We ordered a strawberry and banana crepe to share.
It was totally yummy!
We then brought our full stomachs to do some typical tourists stuff.
I have never been the the Madame Tussaud museum so I was thrilled when I saw some discounts going on for their tickets!
Here are some pictures of my celebrity friends and I. Haha!
(Some of them are dead already)
I didn’t know PM Lee is so tall!
Why are they all so tall? 😦
And the most good looking of them all is John freaking gorgeous Depp!
LOOK AT HIM! Perfect human!
And as night falls, it’s time for the night market!
It was a Saturday so we visited the Ratchada Night Market.
I did some research and read about this place being a treasure cove for vintage finds!
It is not very big, all the stalls are all makeshift ones on a huge carpark.
I love the mood here though!
There are not a lot of tourists and you see a lot of locals shopping too.
When you see a lot of locals at a market, you know it is the place to be at because the prices will be low low LOW! 😀
As you can see in some of the pictures above, a lot of the stalls are set up in front of the owners’ vehicles!
There are also a lot of gorgeous vintage vehicles around here to check out as well!
Here are some photos to give you a better idea of what you can find at the Ratchada Night Market!
I love night markets!
Stick around to read more about the other night market I visited.
Till then, take care.
And I’ll be right back with more!
