#BANGKOK #DAY 6
Last day in Bangkok , Wake up abit late today and have the last breakfast at hotel , continue shopping and visiting since my flight was at night...
Baiyoke Sky hotel
We reached Baiyoke Sky Hotel around 12pm and we had the lunch hour from 11am till 3pm daily, while the dinner starts from 5.30pm till 11pm. which was 800 baht per person . quite worth for the price because it included 360 Revolving view point at 84th floor.
Last visit , Fresh produce has made way for fashion wear, textiles and accessories, but they are still sold at strictly local prices. Endless small alleyways are packed with literally thousands of fashion stores, and they are so cheap because most of them actually sell at wholesale rates.
We Shop Till dROP at 7p.m , After enjoying six days in Bangkok and pattaya , it's time for us to go back to malaysia . everyone was satisfy with the itinerary. And I really miss all the delicious Thai cuisines and street snacks and not to forget my favourite Mango Sticky Rice....definitely Will come back again to bangkok in another two years(maybe).
Not much to say when comes to the end of the trip , what I wanna say is the same as everyone , #byebye #gonna miss it #bla bla.......
