And finally we travelled as a family of 4.. you may ask why only 4. Well it is because of one word: budget.
I am not saying that it is impossible for us to travel altogether in my family of 5 but I will also put into consideration that I will want to bring along my helper with us as I cannot leave her alone in the house with my MIL (another story about that). Anyway.. since Lil I does not own a passport yet, we thought we might as well take the chance of travelling with the two bigger ones since we had a better budget this time.
Booking was done about 6 months in advance in order to enjoy this good price. We paid $1650 for a family of 4 to the travel agency. This includes air tickets, transfer, accommodation and a half day city tour (which we should opt out of it actually).
Enough said, let the pictures do the talking..
Day 1: boarding the plane at 1210hrs
I would say Thai airways service was quite good.
Especially for a girl who had her maiden flight.
At the luxurious room at the hotel.
We stayed at Pratunam Centerpoint, the location is very convenient.
It is clean, comes with breakfast, has a pool to exhaust the kids' energy.
By the time we settled in and all, it was already close to late afternoon.
Our first visit to Big C. Yeah actually our trolley was much fuller when we did a check out.
And total damage: THB$5000+
Dont' ask me why and how.. but we managed to go back in a tutuk.
Then we had dinner at some restaurant.
so hungy and tired.
And someone has his first try at a THB$200 foot massage
He screamed ALOT.
So much that he asked for another round on the next night.
Day 2: Trip to Siracha Zoo
Our trip to Siracha Zoo also know as tiger zoo already occupied us up for more than half a day.
We managed to find an local agency who provides transport and entrance tickets.
I think we paid like THB$8K for transport and entrance for all of us.
I bet the cubs were all sedated.
Anyway.. kids find it so amazing that they had to take their own shot.
How can we miss out a jump shot?
Expenses at the Siracha Zoo was quite affordable.
There is the animals petting section, animals feeding section and you also need money for lunch.
I think we spent less than THB$2000 there.
And soon it was lunch.. or was it dinner..
Whatever.. so we ate.. and we ate..
and eat and eat.. .
Bought from the make shift food stalls opposite Big C.
Day 3: At the half day city tour..
We were picked up at 8am (BKK time) for the tour that comprises of a boat ride, a temple visit and some walking around.
Day 4: Time to go home!
we basically only spent the morning at Platinum mall in the morning as we had to leave the hotel at 12pm for the airport.
there you.. 4 days of fun and priceless memories formed.
See you soon again Bangkok!
