Saturday 


Jim Thompson House




Excellent introduction to Culture Thailand 

Conveniently located in Siam centre, get there by BTS (skytrain) or the local canal water bus on canal Saen Saep.  

This tertiary tour sends you on a soft time warp into the past; Jim Thompson restored the silk trade in the 60's and had a passion for collecting history including classic homes..  he would have done more but for the mysterious death of this popular CIA agent, find out more when you visit Jim Thompson Houserated as popular tour

YoutubeJim Thompson House, fascinating & excellent restaurant external link





























Shopping Siam Paragon



Paragon is modern, sleek and spacious. With brand names like Armani, Chanel and Maserati on hand, the Paragon is decidedly high-end.

Not much for us after a busy night Friday and a busy morning at Jim Thompson House and lunch, we're out of puff and not power shoppers, we settled for an easy afternoon coffee and cake and rest up for tonight's adventure.














Dine in Dark



This is a "MUST DO" adventure for everyone.

There is no place Darker!  Set in the comfort of one of Bangkok's premiere 5 star hotels (Sheraton), here you'll enjoy the comfort of the beautiful ground floor bar in preparation for your dining adventure.

You'll be introduced to your visually impaired waiter and from then on your dependent ....  the waiter will lead you through the darkness to your table, serve you food and drinks and help you out when your finished.

Checkinn99 Cabaret



Checkinn99 is one of those little treasures "priceless".
Many will confide to their trusted friends Checkinn99 deserves a place in everyone's heart.  The band M.O.T.H. (Music from the the Heart) will have you spellbound; close and friendly and the rest is endless, try but you die...  lol 

Know that you are welcome to present song requests to the Band and join the stage for a song or dance you socks off..  "The Greatest prison people live in is the fear of what other people think"  . be happy !!

Lunch Santa Fe




The ultimate cheap charlie dining / smart shopper
For as little as 100baht you can enjoy a quality steak in a aironconditioned restaurant shopping mall

Canal ride  - under construction 











Dinner Khaosan Rd



now how does one explain this place ... LOL
It's where East meets West with amazing bizarre funny outcomes; its the bacpacker zone of Bangkok and what followed was cheap Bars and eating places which turned into trendyville and it keeps going...  Most people are substantially chilled; alcohol induced or just found the organic drug of being happy and so chill dood and get on board  Khaosan Rd nightlife, to be seen to be believed.

Flower Markets



The local name is Pak Klong Talaat 

Open every night, an urban sprawl along the main street; either side and on the road, not to mention the side streets - it's everywhere .. millions of fresh flowers presented every night..  a confusion (infusion) of moisture of delightful floral aroma and intensity of commercial chaos .. lol     

It has to be seen to be believed  - Travel blog article

Dinner Capri




What we liked about Capri Restaurant & Bar Asiatique  
Located at the front of Asiatique with a healthy size courtyard to view passing crowds (360 Panorama) and an eye catching wood fired Pizza oven work station.   

The food was characteristic Italian.  The Soft crab shell was enjoyably different with the flesh separated into a side dish paste...    Khun Von worked her Samon salad while the rest consumed ate all other.

Muay Thai Live





Muay Thai live is definitely high on the "must do" list  

The show uses a battalion of super fit athletic actors / Muay Thai fights (hard to tell).  These guys (and a few beautiful girls) perform magical dare devil stunts as if it's the real deal.  Certainly great value for money in the one (1) hour show

Tuesday


Lunch Shabu Shi Janapese




Shabu Shi Japanese restaurant in MBK is golden egg....  

Don't be surprised to see a traffic jam on the 2nd floor of people queuing down the arcade or squatting on the floor; their loyal; smart; cheap charlies .. lol   Thanks to temp closure of my favourite restaurant we decided to try this venue (no queue) and now I know why they queue up..   all you can eat for around 500baht in an hour   OMG    and the food comes to you on a rail system ...
