Hey all! I’m so happy that I can finally blog about my recent trip to Bangkok last June! I’ll start by sharing this 4D3N Bangkok Itinerary.
Bangkok – who doesn’t love this shopping heaven (esp for girls)? Aside from shopping though, there are also lots of great food (most importantly is cheap too!!) and sightseeing spots for you to discover the Thai culture and architecture.
4D3N Bangkok Itinerary [Shopping + Sightseeing + Great Food]
This is basically just the itinerary for my 4D3N Bangkok trip that includes a balance of shopping, sightseeing and eating lots of good food.
The places here are the MUST-GO places especially for those who are visiting Bangkok for the first time. For me, this is my second visit but I’m bringing a bunch of first timers here. And to be honest, I don’t mind visiting these places again!

If you wonder why we’re getting food at 7-Eleven, let me explain: No, I’m not crazy. The 7-Eleven in Thailand is different from 7-Eleven in Malaysia. In Thailand’s 7-Eleven, there are lots of yummy and cheap packaged food (Malaysia is moving towards this direction too), Betagen (something like Vitagen but better) local yogurt drink, Lay’s Potato Chips and also beer! You’ll go crazy and grab all of them when you saw the price. Trust me!
I will come up with more posts about the trip that include elaborating the details on a daily basis and some tips when you take a cab and tuk tuk.
Read about Pratunam Night Market here.
Also, remember to be careful if you’re being approached by anyone on the street. Apparently, there are a lot of scams in Bangkok that target tourists.
