Asia

Bangkok, Thailand

My first stop in Asia on my dream trip was in Bangkok, Thailand. From Athens, Greece, to Bangkok, Thailand, the distance travelled is approximately 7917.69 Km. I stayed in Bangkok from July 12th - 17th, 2012. The flight time is 12 hours and 40 minutes if flown direct, but there are no direct flights, so I had a one stop flight that stopped in Moscow, with a layover of only 1 hour and 50 minutes, making the total flight time 14 hours and 30 minutes. The cost for this is approximately $915 for a one way trip from Athens, Greece, to Bangkok, Thailand.

Sivatel Bangkok

Sivatel Bangkok

While staying in Bangkok, I stayed at the Sivatel Bangkok, for a price of $134 per night. The view from the hotel room if high up, is amazing.

Temple of the Emerald Buddha

Temple of the Emerald Buddha

While visiting Bangkok, I visited the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. This temple is one of Thailands most valued temple. The whole shrine was very attractive and nicely maintained. Lots of people were sitting in pin drop silence inside the temple. The Emerald image of Lord Buddha was worth seeing.

Flow House Bangkok

Flow House Bangkok

A fun place I visited was the Flow House Bangkok. Here, is where a flow rider simulated wave surfing machine, bar & restaurant, and a pool are located. It is the perfect place to relax and hang out. It generates good laughs and good times.

Bangkok Shooting Range

Bangkok Shooting Range

Another fun and interesting place to visit is the Bangkok Shooting Range. It is a good chance to step out of your comfort zone and try something adventerous and crazy. The shooting range is a little pricey, but is so worth it. It is a good stress reliever and is very safe and safely monitored.

Klong

Klong

A great way to see the city is on Klongs. A Klong is a boat and there are many small waterways or canals that snake through the city of Bangkok. It is an interesting tour and you get to see parts of the city you probably wouldn't have visited.

Chinatown- Bangkok

Chinatown- Bangkok

The best sightseeing in Bangkok was Chinatown. Chinatown is the oldest district in Bangkok and was founded in the 1780's. It gives you first hand experience to their culture and how crazy and hectic Chinatown can get. It got CRAZY with the narrow streets and people and trucks trying to squeeze themselves through. There truly is nothing you can't buy there.

Benjakitti Park

Benjakitti Park

Benjakitti Park is the last place I visited, and got the best pictures. Benjakitti Park is probably Bangkok's best place for urban skyline sunset photographs. For a city sunset, it doesn't get any better than this.
