Bangkok with a bang

From Hanoi, I flew to Bangkok. It was just to transit for my flight to Krabi, but of course, it’s never “just” a trip to Bangkok. In the three hours that I spent outside my super charming guesthouse (more on this soon!), I managed to blew whatever money I’ve saved in Vietnam.

Bangkok has gone back to normal. Save for the gutted buildings, there were no signs that this was a city that has been paralyzed by the red shirts a month ago. The malls are open again, the BTS taking people from one end of the city to another.

I originally planned to stay for the weekend, but when Air Asia had their zero-fare sale, the June 27 departure was cheaper than June 26. Of course, whatever amount I saved on the airfare and accommodation was used up to buy a several cute things, including the most awesome wedding gift for a friend *evil laugh*

I know of three more people who was at Bangkok the same time that I was, and all our updates were the same: shopping in BKK is simply the best. Bangkok is well on their way to economic recovery, I see.
