Sukhumvit Soi 38 Night Food Market
5. Foot reflexology or plain foot massage– Honestly we were apprehensive about these places. Spattered in Sukhumvit, we finally went to one. Their foot massage is quite tranquilizing. There is a traditional Thai massage at Wat Pho (yes, the temple) for around 400 baht and another by the Foundation of Blind for close to 200 baht. We opted for a place on Sukhumvit soi 11 near the condo we were staying and paid around 250 baht for a 40 minute massage. Quite relaxing after a long walking day!Getting around Bangkok:§ Fancy bright coloured tuk-tuks glamourize an otherwise ordinary city ride. Inspite of all reviews about Tuk-tuks overcharging (taxis by 2 times); it is still worth an experience. Our driver zipped through nooks and corners, even parking lots, from Siam Paragon Mall on Rama Road to Sukhumvit in an unbelievable 20 mins (peak traffic time). Thereby dodging Bangkok’s notorious traffic snarls.§ Boats are a great way to get around Bangkoks ‘klongs’ (canals) to take in locals’ lives and their abodes.§ Air-conditioned cabs are most comfortable and it is best to flag a running taxi.Stay @ –Serviced Apartment @ Circle Condo booked via AirbnbAdventures and misadventures-There are 2 airports in Bangkok. One is Suvarnabhumi and the other Don Muaeng International airport. Air Asia operates its flights from the latter. Our cab driver offloaded us off hurriedly at Suvarnabhumi (deceptivelyL) and zipped away. Don Muaeng is 40 kms away from Suvarnabhumi. By God’s grace, we were able to get to our flight because it was morning 4 a.m. Otherwise, a bad after taste of Bangkok would have stayed!Phuket-
