We’ve been saying that we would make a trip to Bangkok some day years ago. Finally, with the right opportunity and valid reason, we booked our tickets a few months ago. And ever since, I’ve been counting down to our trip.
Although it’s a 4 pm (Singapore time) flight, I’ve been anxious and excited since morning. After settling our fur kids, I head over to Dear’s place where her mum offered to send us to the airport after she’s done with her errands. And that’s when I’ve been hoping that her mum will come back soon. Because when we’re at the airport, it’s official that the holiday starts.
There’s always bound to be some hiccups for whatever reason. Our main hiccup was that we had forgotten about our Thailand sim card that we bought online. We’re supposed to collect it at the airport before checking.
We ended up boarding the plane without the sim card. Texted our friend to help us collect before he join us the following week. And we had to get another sim card when we arrive in Bangkok airport if not we have no way of communicating our family on WhatsApp during our trip. And of course, we rely on the data for GPS too as we’ll be having a road trip.
Sinsuvarn Airport Suite
We took a shuttle from the airport to Sinsuvarn Airport Suite. It’s about 10 minutes ride from the airport and we’ll be staying here for a night. After checking in, we headed towards our room. You have to climb down a flight of stairs to have access to the lift. Then another flight of stairs down after we exit the lift to our room. I would say, this isn’t friendly for the elderly especially with luggage.
After entering our room, we realized it’s two single bed instead of a queen that we booked. Called the reception desk to clarify to be told that for the night, they’re fully booked thus we got downgraded. As it’s only for a night, we decided it’s OK.
Dinner – Macdonald
We decided to head out for dinner. With nothing in mind, we walked to the nearest shopping area to look for food. Ended up, we had Macdonald for dinner. Got me a pork burger while Fluffy Bunny ordered a cheeseburger.
It’s been years since I last had pork burger and I love it. Quite enjoying to visit Macdonald when I’m overseas as the menu are usually different. Being different, I get to order something different and give it a try.
Bought myself a Zoro toy from One Piece. His swords twirl up your cables which I think is pretty useful and of course he’s my favorite character. We decided to put it in the car to twirl cables.
We walked back to our hotel after dinner to rest and that’s how we spend our first night in Bangkok.
