We’re staying at the Baan K Residences by Bliston in Bangkok, right next to Lumpini Park. They also pleasantly surprised us by upgrading our parent’s room to their Executive Suite! These photos are from our first day in Bangkok ( yesterday, which was Day Six ). I’ve previously shared photos from The Phuket to Bangkok flight and from the drive from Suvranabhumi Airport to the hotel.
Once we’d settled in a bit, we headed for dinner to this nice place right around the corner called All Day All Night. It is supposed to be a Japanese restaurant. The staff is friendly and weekends can get super busy. We read some custoemr reviews on Google before heading there and some we’re very confidence-inspiring. But we got wonderful service even though we don’t speak Thai and they barely spoke any English.
Food can get spicy, so let them know beforehand. The menu is limited and there are no desserts. Space is a little cramped, so if you’re wearing a backpack – like I was – be careful you don’t slam it into other patrons – like I did. I apologized but a whole 24 hours later, I’m still feeling horrible. People are very polite here so a simple apology doesn’t feel like much.
Lots of overhead wires and street cats here too. Some interesting architecture. Even though we’re on the fifth floor of the Baan K Residences, there’s a skyline I can see from the window. Which is something I wouldn’t say for most capital cities across the world. It’s hot and humid – but the air is clean so it doesn’t feel oppressive. 33 degrees Celcius today during the day. Definitely get a place that has air-conditioning.
Today ( Day Seven ), we were out and about and visited Thailand’s largest open-air market – blogging about that real soon. now that I got three stories out of Day Six, the two stories I have fro Day Seven are going to be a bit delayed. AND I blogged about a couple of other things not related to #EyesForThailand too.
