This being my third visit to Bangkok, I did away with the temples and decided to just eat, eat, eat. And shop, shop, shop. And eat some more.
Took photos of everything that made this trip fun. Enjoy!
NAIA Terminal 2.
Suvarnabumhi Airport, Thailand
Gorgeous Bangkok cityscape
Thip Samai, often regarded as the restaurant that serves the best pad thai in Bangkok. It opens 5pm daily. I arrived 4pm and there was already a line of customers
A good sign of what was to come.
Thip Samai’s pad thai is covered in this egg “shell”
Look at that glorious pad thai. So good!
Thip Samai gave me a sticker as souvenir. Maybe because I ate two plates? LOL
Bought these as soon as I arrived in Bangkok. Only two made it to Manila
Kanom Krok or coconut pancake, another popular Thai street food. It tastes a lot like maja, but more chewy and glutinous
This banana pancake is the best Thai street food ever.
One of the most popular tea brands in Bangkok. Their Thai Milk Tea was gooood
Black sesame ice cream. Yummy, but too messy to eat.
Sweet pork (or was it chicken) skewers being sold at a street stall near the hostel I stayed at. Yummy! And beside it was toasted rice, or in Filipino, tutong.
Hello Kitty Cafe at Siam Square One
Loved the LED facade of this building beside BTS Chit Lom station
View from my room at the Conrad Hotel
The coffee that kept me awake
A common sight at food stalls lining Bangkok roads.
A temple I passed by as I was walking to Thip Samai
Din Tai Fung’s steamed custard buns. LOOOOVED THIS!
Look at that gooey goodness. I almost cried out of sheer joy.
Din Tai Fung’s beef noodle soup. Another meh.
Potato Corner, a Filipino company, recently opened their first stall in Bangkok. #PinoyFried
A KFC fried chicken without gravy is a sad fried chicken.
Thai iced coffee bough from a street stall between Centralworld and Platinum malls
Glur Hostel, the one of two accommodations I stayed at for this trip, features a full-service restaurant. I loved their book display and the overall hip vibe.
Glur Hostel’s tom yum soup.
Glur Hostel’s chicken satay with the yummy peanut sauce.
Fancy tuk tuk on display at Siam Square One
Mos Burger is I think a Japanese fast food chain. Loved their burger and the special sauce they put in it.
I was able to watch two films from the Bangkok ASEAN Film Festival.
First film: Taklub from the Philippines, directed by Brillante Mendoza starring Nora Aunor.
Second film: Above It All from Laos.
There was a weekend food market outside Centralworld featuring all kinds of food and stuff
Yummy chicken noodle soup I ate from the weekend market
Oyster omelette from Food Republic, Siam Square. Super sinful, but super good.
One of the ceiling fixtures at Siam Square.
Time to go back to Manila
I’m coming back sooner rather than later. That’s for sure
