1st day in our hotel "Millenium Hilton Bangkok"-GREAT hotel, very luxurious! :)

Both of us are soooo excited about Thailand! We both love Thai food and that is the main reason hahah. I realized that if you are a foodie you need to go with someone who is a foodie too so you can both get excited about good food. :) Tahne is a good travel partner.

Day 1 and Day 2- we arrived at our hotel and took pics and then went to sleep. Day 1, 2 and Day 3 we took a tour which took us to the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit), Reclining Buddha, Wat Po, Grand Palace, etc. At night time we walked around Kaosan Road which was all tourists I don't think I saw any locals (maybe not sure), that place was open till midnight for shopping, people partying and drinking on the streets till who knows when. We were too busy shopping and wanting to see more, to stop and party.

We also went to Suan-Lum Night Bazaar every night we were in Thailand, for our foot massages!! 150 bhat or something like that, for a 1 hour massage, open till midnight. That was our favorite spot!!!  Thailand is great, really HOT, nice people, and great sights, great food! Riding a tuk tuk is sooo fun and I loved the massages... yay Thailand! We did have a close encounter at about 3am coming home from Ping Pong Banana (hahahhaha apparently Filipinos really wanna see this-I dont know why! so my friend was bugging me to go). Anyway in our taxi, we hopped in (taxi driver looked like he was no older than 15 yrs old and he kept flirting with us and being silly and saying it was X amount of bhat (I cant remember at this time) but basically it was 2 times the amount it should have been.
Day 2-view from our room, nice huh!?
He was just trying to rip us off, saying he could get business elsewhere for the same price he was offering us. So we said fine drop us off. We will take another taxi. He kept saying "no no no" as he drove around for a good 10-15 minutes trying to get us to pay the price he wanted. WTF. This dude just wasted money on gas while driving us around and not letting us out of the taxi instead of just taking us where we wanna go. I wasnt scared only coz I was way bigger than him and he was a funny dorky kid so I knew I could take him down if needed :P hahaha jk. Anyway it ended up being ok, he took us, and we just paid him what we wanted to pay him. Thailand has alot of "negotiating" for things.
