Trip to Bangkok – 15th to 17th Jan

This is my 2nd time to Bangkok. Just to share my itinerary so that next time you can get some idea when you drop by Bangkok.

Airline – Tiger Airways (Free Ticket if you book early and when under promotion. With Airport Taxes, I paid only $149 both ways)
Hotel – Twin Tower (room for 3, $216 for 2 nights), Good hotel, far from Traffic Jams, Big rooms, good service
Travelling - Usually by Meter Taxis and BTS (Don't take Tut-tut, more expensive and use BTS only during Traffic Jam hours as Taxi Cheaper if you have group of 3 or 4)

Yes. Enjoyable but tiring. The shopping is endless. Too much to cover.
