One Night in Bangkok

After all our fun at Chulalongkorn and the Snake Farm, Charlton and I went back to Siam Paragon and did more window shopping at Siam Center and Discovery Center. Then we met with his cousin Pong and his girlfriend for dinner at MK Trendi for sukiyaki. The food was delicious and we had a great time (thanks Pong for dinner!) Then Charlton and I went out to hit the streets of Bangkok for some of the nightlife.

First, we headed to Pat Pong, the famous district known for its Ping Pong shows and go-go dancing. Can we say "EWWWW!" I was hustling through there as quickly as possible. Was really dirty and sleazy there. Also got stepped on so we decided to leave and didn't spend much time looking at the night bazaar stalls in between the clubs.

We then walked past Lumphini Park to Suan-Lim Night Bazaar. Charlton had never been so it was nice to see something new together. The Bazaar was really large and mostly covered, and there was stall after stall of goods. It was much cleaner there than any of the other markets and bazaars we had gone to. I would have liked to spend more time there but it started to pour so we decided it was best to head home and come back another night. We can always make time for shopping *wink wink*

One Night in Bangkok makes a tough man tummble as the song goes....
Pat Pong the Honkey Tonk area that all the service men would go
down on Petburi rd.....
Shopping is a MAJOR SPORT in BKK & a big fun in my eyes. I loved looking
for antiques, old coins, and Thai Military Payment Certificates.
The 1st Major Sport is eating food and good food from almost every country can be found..... Major Sport 3 is the BEACHES, where you can do the all the major sports at once.....fritz
Combine that and cultural / historical sight seeing it's no wonder Thailand as the most exoctic oriental country is top O List favorite...:)
