After my 21st Bday, a relaxing weekend getaway was needed! My friends and I went to Bangkok, Thailand! At first we tried to change our flight to Phuket, Thailand instead, because Bangkok just got flooded, but our airlines didn’t travel there. So, we decided to just stick with Bangkok and make the best of it! Most of the flooding was around the river fronts and not in the touristy areas, but its still really bad. There are a lot of first story buildings just completely underwater and there were sandbags EVERYWHERE. It was kind of sad to see that. Also, you could see the indirect impacts of the flood; like grocery stores would be running out of food and water and 7-elevens would just be barren.
But besides all of this, Bangkok was really great and just the break I needed. Everything in Thailand is so so soooo cheap. Meals would be like 1-3USD. Our first night in the hotel we ordered milkshakes through room service!! It was only like 3 USD!!! ahaha Best thing ever!
Our hotel was incredible, and what was even better was that we got it for 50% off!!! Because of the flood in Bangkok, hotels have been cutting down prices to get more customers. The hotel was right in downtown and close to a lot of shopping malls, and flea markets.
The second day in Bangkok we went to the floating markets! This place is just another canal place where you take a boat around and there are lots of souvenir shops on boats! In this town we got to ride elephants!!! LOOK AT MEEE!!
Overall, I had a great time in Bangkok! It was very calming trip. I hope I can focus now and get some work done, because I got some big papers to finish..
