Hello to all! I'll tell you my beautiful DIY experience in Thailand. And 'the third time that I and Henry we go back, but never for 15 days and all organized by us. Flight Discounted Blue Panorama from Rome for the modest sum of € 350.00 round trip October 15, we travel quite uncomfortable because of the narrow seats and very poor service, luckily that both flights were at night, after flew with the Thai, the Malesya and China Airlines, you see the difference, but everything is offset by the low cost.
Our arrival in Bangkok was different, I remembered a town muggy, smelly and instead has changed since 2005, air more breathable thanks to cars and vans to LPG. When you arrive at the airport you go to the 4th floor, one of the departures and negotiating, you will be able to get to the center by taxi for 400 baht. We chose the Residence Silom, because it is in front of the stop BTS Chong Nonsi, so he turns Bangkok without a taxi booking with Hotels clicks, 95 Euros per couple with breakfast 3 nights, rooms large, clean and with every comfort, mega plasma TV and free internet. In Bangkok, having already seen the most important temples in 2005, we went always with BTS, convenient day pass 120 baht, stop all'MBK National Stadium, in a mega mall where you can find everything and try everything, then at the Weekend Market, do not miss! You buy a few bath with everything you want and then it is a very original, to turn everything we need at least one day, takes place only on Saturdays and Sundays and can be reached via BTS or metro.
The trip we made it more interesting if booked with a local agency ( We went to the floating market, very touristy! At the bridge over the River Kwai and most spectacular, the Temple of the Tigers. The entrance fee is a bit ', but the Tigers caress your senses and you will walk with them.
DIY trip to the former capital Ayutthaya, train departing from Bangkok Railway Station (times take them directly to the station because sometimes changes), 2nd class for two persons 490, 00 bath, in the carriage with air conditioning, back to the 3rd class 30.00 baht for two people, traveling with open windows and fans, strictly standing for half trip. Thinking about it, the 3rd class leg is better because the train departs from Bangkok and is empty. What a sight watching campaigns Bangkok out the window. We have dared to turn Ayutthaya by bike because the distances are so many, we rely to a guy with a tuk tuk to 400.00 baht led us to see the most important temples.
