Early checkout from the Lai Thai Guesthouse and rather short minibus trip to the airport. The airline which took me to Bangkok, was a low price airline, One Two Go. They have maybe not the best reputation, since the crash in Phuket a year ago or so. However the flight went well and one hour later I arrived to Don Muang, Bangkok’s old airport. To arrive to Don Muang nowadays is a rather gloomy experience. Most of the airport buildings are empty and closed, only the small domestic wing of the terminal show some life. The taxi trip into central Bangkok became a pleasant surprise for me. Instead of the normal fixed prices, this taxi driver surprised me by to go on the taximeter. Of all taxi transports I ever had before, this trip became the absolutely cheapest. Since I spend so short time here in Bangkok, I decided to test a new area, The Siam Centre area. So for the moment I live in the middle of Bangkok’s shopping area. My hotel, the A One Inn hotel is just a short walk from the MBK, one of Bangkok’s bigger shopping temples.
For this day, I had no bigger plans. Just strolling around a little bit, mostly to see what I possibly could buy later on, just before my home going. For the moment I am not in a position to do any bigger shopping. Because during my next flight, there I am only aloud to have 15-kilo luggage and also that everything I buy from now on, I have to carry for a long time. Today I visited the Pratunam market and finished with a visit at the indoor and air-conditioned, MaBonKrong MBK shopping centre.
