Suvarnabhumi Airport Nong Prue Samut Prakan Thailand
From Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, you will need to take a cab to Kanchanaburi. The drive is about 140 kms long and will take you a comfortable two-and-a-half hours to reach. Once in Kanchanaburi, it takes another 40 minutes to reach the resort’s private pier with free parking facility, the Phutakien Pier (Resotel pier), by traveling towards Saiyok district.
Suvarnabhumi Airport Bang Na-Trat Road Rachathewa Samut Prakan Thailand
Arrive at the Suvarnabhumi Airport from India. We had taken Thai Airways and the fare cost us approximately Rs. 23,000 from Mumbai to Bangkok. Oh, by the way, do spend some time looking at the construction of the airport. You'll find a lot of inspiration from the Indian mythology on the airport!
Wat Pariwat Yan Nawa Bangkok Thailand
Wat Pariwat is a Buddhist temple in Bangkok. The shrine is of gold, with three large Buddha figures in front of another incredibly intricate mural. If you didn't know it was here, you wouldn't necessarily spot the David Beckham statue as his image is actually carved into the altar itself. The gatekeeper told us that the statue was installed in 1998 where a Garuda used to reside. Thai sculptor Thongruang Haemhod wanted to add it because football is the new religion, and the temple’s abbot agreed as part of the World Cup celebrations. It is difficult to wrap your head around the story, but it does make a pretty fascinating sight.
The Erawan Museum Bang Muang Mai Samut Prakan Thailand
Day 2 was dedicated to exploring the CBD, the Erawan Shrine and the several malls that surround it. Checking out a few small stores introduced me to local teas, cooking supplies and skin care products which were surprisingly effective. Around 5 pm, I made my way to Sky Bar(on the 57th floor of The Lebua ). The hotel can be slightly elusive for a first timer in Bangkok with a penchant for using public transport as much as possible. This however, worked in my favour, introducing me to some new friends.
