As I return to my beloved Bangkok for a trip all about me.
No family in tow. Only my agenda!

No trip to Bangkok can be without visiting Jim Thompson House. Out of the hustle and bustle and down the road from MBK.
A nice meal in an ideal setting.
Bargain Heaven, with great food, clean facilities and competitive exchange rates. Throw in entertainment and you have a one stop shop. BTS National Stadium
Your upmarket shopping and eating heaven. I buy most of my stationary here. The food hall and supermarket cater to all needs.
Extensive collection of books and magazines. Always worth a visit to catch up on my reading.
A wonderful oasis in a very busy shopping complex. Whilst decor looking a little tired meals and in particular desserts are delicious.
Once you have shopped and eaten your fill go to the top for rest and relaxation in these top of the range cinemas.
Another convenient alternative to the BTS. Underground, quick & cheap. Go to JJ Market or Chinatown.
My favorites, Karma Kamet, local eatery and dessert stall. Silver jeweler. New stalls.
Very economical and quick way to get to those areas not accessed by BTS or MRT. The alternative is a Taxi.
