Bangkok, Thailand- Aug 2013

We flew to Bangkok using MAS on 29th August 2013. Flight was delay for one and half hour.

We stayed at Arnoma Hotel, the location is so convenient, next to it is Big C Hypermarket, 10 mins walk to Platinum Mall, Central is just opposite, 10 mins walk to Central Departmental Store at Chilom, 5 min walk to Erawan Shrine. 
Room at Arnoma Hotel
We booked our Chao Phraya Cruise at the hotel tour desk for RM140 pax inclusive of pick up from hotel. We choose Grand Pearl. It was awesome. We were welcome by Elvis Presly impersonator before we on board to the cruise. The food selection was great. We enjoyed the Philippines band and the night view of Chao Phraya River.

It rains every day. Finally I able to visit Asiatique via boat from Sapthan Thaksin.

Made using Condoms at Cabages & Condoms
We had our dinner at Cabbages and Condom. We enjoy seeing those condoms packaging, weird pictures and souvenir items more than the food. You are given complimentary of male and female condom at the end of your meal. Cute rite!!

Lunch at Laem Cha-Roen Seafood Restaurant at Central World. This meal cost us RM600.

4WD Excursion at Lata Berembun Waterfall, Raub

4WD excursion to Lata Berembun Waterfall. It tooks us 45 minutes journey to the waterfall from Sg. Klau.  Bumpy ride all the way and it was fun.

We had picnic there,  ate nasi lemak and then follow by Gua Musang Durian which included in the package. If you want to eat durian, the best time to visit is in August. Surprisingly there is no mosquitoes. The is no proper lighting in the toilet. In fact the toilet is quite dirty.

We dip ourself into the water and is really cold. The water is very clear.

We then drop by to Bukit Koman for famous home made beancurb @ tau foo pok and hakka kuih @ snacks.

Check it out at Chop Yoon Thye for kuih, open from 2pm-6.30pm (sat-thursday),

You can ask them for direction to the famous home made beancurb which is just around the corner. Just drive carefully as the road are quite narrow.
