I'm back from my 30th birthday trip with my partner and mum. We had a great time!! Thai AIrways is the only airline that has direct flights from Brisbane and they were offering reasonably priced flights considering it was for over Christmas! We flew with Thair Airways with no problems.. great service, seats and meals!
We stayed at Pathumwan Princess hotel and we are glad we did!! Such a lovely hotel. The buffet breakfast is excellent and has a variety of breakfast options. My short review and photos can be found here: tripadvisor.com.au/ShowUserReviews-g293916-d…
We had perfect weather throughout our trip - warm, just how we like it! :) Although it was a bit cold and windy on our Kanchanaburi and Ayutthaya trip, it got warmer later in the day.
We went shopping at MBK and Siam centres a few times, also went to Madame Tussauds, which we thought was worthwhile checking out. We got a foot massage on the 3rd or 5th floor (I can't remember which) which I thought was great...worth every cent! Certainly better than what I experienced at Jungcelyon in Phuket!!
We dined at Cabbage and Condom restaurant on 25 December and thought it was great! The food was excellent (and cheap too!!) and it was interesting to have a look around. We had an enjoyable evening.
We did a half day temple tour with Destination Asia which we thought was great for the limited time we had. Wat Pho was a highlight of the temples tour.
Our Kanchanaburi trip with Wandee was fantastic. Our custom made tour consisted of the bridge of River Kwai, war cemetery, JEATH museum, lunch as well as elephant trekking at Saiyok elephant camp. Wandee was a great guide, we enjoyed our day with her. We would recommend
her to anyone looking at getting a private tour while in Bangkok. Review and some tour photos can be found here: tripadvisor.com.au/ShowUserReviews-g293916-d…
We also did an Ayutthaya tour with We Tour Thailand, which also had a lunch cruise on the Grand Pearl back to Bangkok. We thought this was a great day trip and liked it very much. Review and photos can be found here: tripadvisor.com.au/ShowUserReviews-g293916-d…
Think that's about it from me. :)
Thanks for reading!!
