Wat Phra Kaew(Grand Palace), Bangkok

My wife and I are married on 1st March 2016 in Hawaii and because we were still studying at that time, we did not return to our respective home country for local wedding reception. However, we did made a trip down to Thailand on February 2018 for a local wedding reception.  The wedding was held at the LDS Chapel in Chaengwattana.

We stayed at a hotel called Anna-Nava Pakkret, near the church because we will be returning from our wedding pretty late. We love the hotel as it was pretty clean too. Check out the hotel on the link.

After the wedding, we spent our time touring around Bangkok and I absolutely love the food and our time in Thailand. Bangkok is well known for shopping and eating, according to my wife who is born and raised in Bangkok all her life. We went to the mall a lot, we got massage a lot, and we eat a lot.

Bangkok is also known for it's bad traffic. We rely mostly on the train and public transportation such as taxi and other sort of transports. Which is why we later move to our next hotel in Asoke which is just above the cafe. It's a pretty quiet place with really some advance security in which you could access only if you live there. The hotel is Case Study Asoke located near 7eleven and a university which has morning market.

We took BTS Skytrain to Saphan Taksin BTS Station where we bought our ticket to get on the boat to some of the tourist attractions. Boat is also one of the main transportation in Thailand. 

We visited Wat Phra Kaew (Grand Palace). It is surrounded by pretty tall wall and lots of China tourists. The place is pretty packed. The admission fee is 500Baht for foreigners and you are required to rent a long pants to cover your knee. 

If you decide to hang around Asoke which is also near Terminal 21, please do take your time to visit Srinakharinwirot University where you could find morning market with tons of delicious and cheap food.
