Wooohooo! It was my first time visiting Bangkok! I arrived at Suvarnabhumi Airport (Suvarnabhumi means "The Golden Land") and our tour guide Mr.Banchong send us to our hotel. It was our 4 days 3 nights Bangkok graduation trip for my bf.
Enjoyed the view when taking noon flight to Bangkok. Blue sky and clouds under our plane. Wow! Awesome view that make me always grab the window seat! Worth it! Finally I am able to take airplane window shots with my Samsung NX1000!
Our first destination was The famous Four Faced Buddha at Erawan Shrine which is the heart of Bangkok. The funny thing though, the Four Faced Buddha is not inside a Wat (temple in Thai), it is just in a small patch of land at Phloenchit Road corner Rajadamri Road.
The Four-Faced Buddha literally has four faces. The first Face starts in a clockwise direction from the entrance of the shrine which represents the Face of Peace and Health, Face of Good Fortune, Face of Good Relationships and Face of Protection against Evils. People offer garlands of marigold flowers, lotus, young coconuts, candles and incense sticks to the Four-Faced Budhha at the 4 corners in a clockwise direction. Often, if a wish has been granted, people thank the spirits by donating teak elephants, gigantic candles or commissioning the classical Thai dancers and musicians to perform to the Gods. Many Thai use gold leaf and make an offering-by placing the gold on the wooden elephants.
After the four faced buddha we went back to our hotel. Let's take a tour of our room!
Eastin Hotel is a 4 stars hotel. We have book 4 rooms for 3 nights which 2 persons each room. I have no complain to our room. The toilet is clean, the bedding got no weird smells, the water heater works well, the kettle works well too. There are 2 bottles of mineral water provided everyday. There are LAN and wifi provided in each room. You can enjoy wifi by getting the password wrote on a paper from the service counter, the password expired in 12hours. After expired you have to take another paper from the counter. So on our second day we took few password papers to spare. Hahaha!!
Thank God they provided facial cotton too cause I forgot to bring to Bangkok! XD
The swimming pool look awesome but I don't have the chance to try it cause period time! =( I think swim at night time is better cause you can avoid the hot sun and the vehicles sound come from the big road beside. Bangkok had a bad traffic!
Working desk at the middle of the room in front of the wardrobe.

After a nice shower we went to Chinatown to have our dinner! Casual wear in the hot weather. We took taxi to Chinatown for 200 baht! So expensive. The tour guide told us that the price should be around 100 baht. All taxi passed by told us the same reason - traffic jam so we have no choice cause we are hungry too! My friend said we should wait until a taxi charges in meter.
The famous T&K seafood restaurant in Chinatown Bangkok. I have read many bloggers recommend this place is a must to try out cause the seafood here is cheap and yummy! There were 2 seafood restaurants at the same street side by side so you must recognise their uniform which is in GREEN color!
Do you think that the guys on the menu cover look like.....Jay Chow?

That's all for my first day in Bangkok!
Stay tune for my 2nd day in Bangkok!
