    Originally planned for a morning 4-hr trip here but stayed all the way because there were so many things to see — especially love the artisan corner.

    They have massage parlors everywhere so you can get a quick rest and continue shopping ;D

    I love this mall. It has everything you could possibly need. Go grab some food at the massive food court and then go get some luxury shopping done right above!

    I quite appreciated taking a walk around the park in the late afternoon. Picturesque, and some interesting wildlife.

    It seems pretty active and lots going on. ALL those out walking or jogging for exercise are moving in the same direction. Unsure if this is a written or unwritten rule? Interesting behaviour! There was an interesting class going on when I finished - Zumbw outside or some such.

    I'be been here before COVID and the experience was very different. COVID took is toll in Bangkok. Only about 25% of the stalls are occupied it is really sad to see a once buzzing area changed to a tranquil and quite place.

    Bring said the above it is still worthwhile visiting. Eating here is memorable. I ate the best Thai cuisine dish at KUE Sa Wa Dee out of all the previous 15+ trips to Bangkok and the islands.

    Big wheel is still operational as well as the spooky: Mystery Mansion. Still a big photo opportunity market

    It is only 30-40 mins from central Bangkok. It is opened during weekends 8.00-17.00 but most of food stalls are shut at 15.00... I reckon you come here before 10am just to avoid the crowd and easy to find parking space/dining table. It is pretty busy after 11am.

    You can buy food and sit anywhere you want. Try to get tables near the canal for floating market atmosphere. More food at the market on the left side from market entrance. The one on the right side is smaller.

    Long Tail Boat trips are available for shared and private boat. I have eaten a lot of food and bought some clothes from here. Polite and kind local people tho. Highly recommended,

    I was a monk at Wat Paknam Phasi Charoen years ago. My mom took me to the temple when I was young. Today I went for the funeral of a great monk. Wat Paknam is peaceful and beautiful!

    Rainy Sunday it was, that forced me to duck into this space for some shelter from the downpour outside on Bangkok. And I am glad it happened that way.
    The building itself is architecturally appealing.. (think almost Guggenheim)
    Multi use spaces interspersed with coffee shops.. Book shops.. More galleries.. Other event spaces.. Meeting rooms a library and some retro and green spaces.
    I spent about 2 hours here browsing through the shops.. Looking at art and just absorbing the scale of the building.
    Won't make this a kid friendly space.. But will give credit here - They appear to have made considerable effort for mobility assistance.

    Exhibitions change often..so a quick browse on the Web to make sure you don't walk into a dead zone.

    Overall.. I found the space energizing and uplifting.. The art was a bonus..
    Coffee- chocolate- earth- and all other lovers of all kinds.. Come and explore...

    Central World is touted as the largest lifestyle shopping complex in the region and a trip to here explains. The greater complex actually host a hotel, office space, cinema and even an indoor ice skating rink, but for tourists… let’s review shopping and food! The sprawling premise offers an unrivalled mix and range of products and services that will put the fun back into shopping for all.
    Not quite the High-end (likes of ICONSIAM) it’s value proposition is that of a Mid-class shopping center. Still Central World's brought in good mix of renowned brands. Alongside department stores there are both local and overseas brand that one can send hours shopping! I myself bought a Japanese Kamimura shirt with a great discount at Central Department Store, pity they do not carry Yibesu.
    Dining at Central World is a treat for the palate, there's something to suit all styles and budgets. One can sample authentic Thai food in the comfort of restaurants and the many overseas cuisines from around the world. In fact there was a Japanese Fair area and many things Japanese are available,
    Conveniently linked to the continuous R-Walk we dropped by Central twice during our 5-nighhts Stay nearby. Definitely recommended for all.

    A very popular Bangkok shrine located in the northwest corner of Grand Hyatt Hotel. This Hindu shrine is flocked by visitors everyday, almost 24hrs. Worshippers come to pay religious homage to the 4-faced Brahma god (Than Tao Mahaprom), well known to be kind and merciful. I dropped by a late morning to make a simple prayer for a kind trip and safe journey back. It was well answered!! It is at a very prominent intersection where Ratchadamri Road, Rama I Road, and Phloen Chit Road meet. This area has many malls and shopping complexes within easy walking distance, and there’s a skyridge (part of the R-Walk) linking to the BTS (both Chit Lom and Siam Station

    We arrived at Sanam Chai metro station and the Flower Market was well sign-posted.

    The Flower Market is covered, so it was nice to shelter inside and escape a heavy rainfall.

    The Market seems to be bisected by a major road, and each side seems to have fruits/veg and flowers (lots of marigolds, roses, orchids). On one side there is also a shrine.

    Eating is more challenging here as we didn’t find a lot on offer, but we did find a street-side restaurant selling pad-Thai and noodles - AND we could sit down - for 50 THB, and both were fantastic.

    I did feel a bit voyeuristic in the market, but nobody seemed to mind our being there. Occasionally a motorbike would whizz through the market, and plenty of men pulling enormous wicker baskets - one even had an old lady in it!

    We enjoyed it and found it very vibrant.
