Moving on to Day 4 in Bangkok. The fiancé and I started our day first with a dim sum lunch at Ah Yat Abalone Seafood Restaurant, followed by a visit to Chatuchak Weekend Market and Union Mall in the afternoon.

Dim Sum at Ah Yat Abalone Seafood Restaurant | Arnoma Grand Bangkok

We didn't know there is an Ah Yat Seafood Restaurant located inside Arnoma Grand Bangkok until we came across the above poster in the hotel's lobby and inside the lift. With a 50% discount from Monday to Saturday and 20% discount on Sunday and Public Holidays, it certainly seems like a good reason for us to try out the dim sum.

Also, if you recalled, we …

Continue with Day 3 in Bangkok! We went out at around 13:30, and took a Grab to Chan Thai Traditional Massage (near Baiyoke Sky) for an hour of foot massage. We could have walked there, but the fiancé and I were too lazy to walk under the sun, so we figured we would pay THB36 for the short journey.

The massage was great as usual! We paid THB200 per person for one hour of foot massage. Coming out from the parlour, we thought we would pay a visit to Pratunam Market since we were in the vicinity.

Pratunam Market
Pratunam Market was as crowded as before. Even though we were there in the afternoon, the market was still in full force with people coming in from different directions.

While the majority of the shops t…

Day 2 in Bangkok! The first part of our day (noon onwards) was spent at Bangkok's Chinatown (Yaowarat). Took a Grab and the fare was only THB107. (Considering we usually paid THB200 / THB250 for regular taxi).

Bangkok's Chinatown (Yaowarat)

Right after reaching Chinatown, the first shop we came across was one selling iron on embroidery patches. There were so many designs to choose from, and I remembered they were fairly cheap compared to those selling at the night markets. I have no use for them, but I still couldn't resist and ended up buying some. Got a total of fifteen small ones, at THB100 for five.

Later on, I even went to get a plain tote bag, thinking I would decorate it with the iron on patches. But until today, I still haven't get down to do it.


You can find lots of character's pouches, keychains, plushies, cell phone covers, power banks, etc. in Chinatown.

I'm afraid I don't have any other pictures to share about my trip to Chinatown because I was…
