Wat Arun 

Hey Guys,
I am back from Bangkok and I am really fascinated by the city. Everything is so cheap compared to Dubai and you have a lot of great places to visit. Especially the huge temples inspired me a lot. My favorite temple was Wat Arun because the architecture is really spectacular. You need to be really careful when you walk the stairs because the distance between the steps is much bigger than at a normal stairs. I've never visited a temple before and therefore Bangkok was the perfect city to get a view of the impressive buildings. We spent 4 and a half days in Bangkok and this was pretty fine to visit a lot of different places. Honestly, we spent a lot of time in different shopping malls and outdoor markets because the prices are so cheap and often you can negotiate. Therefore we bought a lot of new clothes, some accessories for our flat and a lot of beauty products. My favorite shopping experience was the Platinum Shopping Mall because there you can find a lot of beautiful and cheap clothes. I bought really nice dresses for around 4-6 EUR (16-25 AED) which is really really cheap for our conditions. The Shopping Mall is huge and has around 6 floors with a lot of clothes, accessories, shoes and much more. I think you can find a lot of the clothes cheaper at the Chatuchak Weekend Market or the Pratunam Market but for me the Platinum Shopping Mall was definitely the best mall with the nicest clothes.

Before I traveled to Bangkok I watched a lot youtube videos to find the best markets in Dubai and during my research I found a lot about the Chatuchak Weekend Market. The market is only on the weekends and it is a huge outdoor market with a huge variation out of everything. You can buy clothes, beauty products, interior and a lot more. The market is really beautiful but I was a little bit disappointed during my visit because all the youtube videos were so nice and I had a big expectation before I visit the market and for me it was nice but definitely not my favorite one. Maybe I didn't find the right shops because the market is huge and you can spend a whole day to discover all the shops. Beside a lot of shopping we also tried the food and visit some fancy coffees. Honestly, I am not a huge fan of the food in Thailand. I am not really sure why but it is so different to the Germany food and often the food didn't smell or look really good and thats why it makes really hard for me to try a lot. Normally I am not picky with food but in Bangkok I didn't want to try a lot of new dishes. Once we ate in a typical thai-restaurant and it was good. I tried a soup and a local rice dish and it was nice. On the other days we went to some nice coffees and tried some tasty ice cream and my favorite sweets - mochis. I really love mochis and I can recommend everybody to try them. Mochis are made out of rice and inside is often ice-cream. You can also buy them without the ice-cream filling. 
During our stay we lived in Park Plaza Soi 18 and the location was really good to discover the city with all the different sights. Sometimes we drove with a Tuktuk which is really cool but more expensive like a taxi. If you want to drive really cheap you can download an App which is called "Grap" and it works like uber. You can choose your route and the price will be mentioned before you accept to start the drive. Sometimes you need to wait a little bit until a driver will accept your request but often it takes not more than 10 minutes until you will be picked up. The price will be charged from your credit card which works really easy and uncomplicated. Don't forget that the traffic is horrible in Bangkok. I've never seen so much traffic in any other city before therefore you should start your day a bit early because often you get stuck in traffic. Our trip was really nice and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. 
If you look for a nice city trip in a cheap city you should definitely visit Bangkok. 

Best, Patty
