Bangkok trip – 16 May 14

After clearing the immigration custom, we head to the SATS Premier Lounge located at the 2nd level of the transit hall. The lounge here at Terminal 2 is smaller compared to the other SATS lounge at Terminal 1.

Hubby had a heavy lunch so the first thing he did when he stepped into the lounge is to look for the massage chairs corner.

We walked pass a M&M store. Well, this store pale in comparison to the one I have visited in London.

The boarding gate was located at the very end of the terminal and we walked quite a bit of distance. The plane take off on time and the flight was uneventful.

When we landed at Suvarnabhumi airport, the queue at the immigration counters was very long and it took us almost 1hr to clear the custom. We took the airport rail which cost THB45 ~ S$2 per person. The journey to Phaya Thai took about an hour.

From Phaya Thai, we changed to BTS and alight at Siam station. We walked to Siam Square Soi 5 where Som Tam Nua is located. There was construction in that area and I couldn't locate the restaurant. I have accidentally found another Som Tam Nua restaurant when we settle for dinner at Siam Center. The restaurant is located at the 4th floor. Hubby went to Bangkok again a month later and he told me that the Som Tam Nua is still at Siam Square Soi 5.

I wanted to order Hot & Spicy fish but it was sold out so we ordered the same dishes again. The standard of the mango salad here is not on par with the one we had at Siam Square Soi 5 but the chicken wings is still finger licking good.

We walked from Siam Centre to Central World which takes about 15min. By the time we reached Naraya shop, the security guard told us the shop is close although it's 15min before the closure time. We crossed the overhead bridge to Big C Supermarket which is open until 11pm.

I have read online that shampoo and toothpaste are cheap in Bangkok but I don't find the price cheap at the supermarket. I bought snacks such as the crab flavour Tao Kae Noi seaweed and cuttlefish.
Big C supermarket is indeed big!

We took a cab to Grand Millennium Sukhumvit but the driver make a mistake and dropped us at Grande Centre Point. We discovered that we are at the wrong hotel when checking in at the lobby. As Grand Millennium Sukhumvit is across the road, it is too near to take a cab so we walked to the hotel.

The receptionist upgraded our room to the Grand Deluxe room which is located on the 15th floor. I love the huge bathroom and the TV volume can be adjusted inside the bathroom too.
