Where to STAY in BANGKOK-MINS AWAY FROM BTS SKYTRAIN

WHERE TO STAY BANGKOK GRANDE CENTRE POINT HOTEL PLOENCHIT

Grand Centre Point Hotel Ploenchit

Address: 100 Wireless Road, Bangkok, 10330 Thailand

Tel: 66 (2) 6595 000

Continue of my last Bangkok trip. I stayed in Grand Centre Point Hotel. The location is very good as it takes only 10 -15 minutes  to Siam from skywalk. Also 5 mins to BTS. I made my reservation through Expedia from their special offer. It costs HK$2725 – 4 nights (2 persons)! So it’s around HK$680 /night include tax which I think is a good deal in such a convenient location.

I didn’t take photos at the lobby as haven’t thought of sharing my stay in blog. Anyways, the interior is a bit apartment feeling, not like normal hotel. However the interior do looks pretty nice! A bath tube with open wooden window and a balcony to enjoy such a beautiful night view in Bangkok.

Night view from my room!

Have been quite a while not having a new post. Anyways after a busy week,  would like to share some great food of my previous Bangkok trip in June. As I arrived before my husband because of my free redeem ticket of Asia miles!  So my first dinner was alone. I planned to have my dinner at the Dock located in Siam paragon super market – Gourmet market.  It is actually not a restaurant but a seafood bar. Thus it is a good idea if you have no partner to enjoy the dinner but yourself. Although it is only a bar however they do provide the freshness oysters and lobsters. Their oysters import from France, Tasmania and Japan.So you are like tasting the oysters around the world in this little bar!

The Food

I ordered the oyster set and come with a little glass of champagne also a lobster pasta.  The lobster was so fresh as they were kept in tank and still alive before they picked and cooked! Price was reasonable and with only 12 seats around the bar table. So if you plan to enjoy the seafood with a group of friends then it might not be a good idea to go but a great location if you are enjoy with 2 or alone.

LAEMGATE – All you can EAT SEAFOOD

All you can eat seafood in Bangkok Laemgate

That’s one of the restaurant I visited in my past Bangkok trip. Laemgate is on my check list which I must go! It attracts me as it is ALL YOU CAN EAT for SEAFOOD!!

Laemgate have 2 branches in Bangkok, one in Phaholyothin11 and the other in Ari 4. How to go? The Ari branch is very close to BTS Ari Station exit 3, it takes you about 10 mins walk from the station OR if you decided to go after your plan to Chatuchak Market, then I would suggest you to go to Phaholyothin11 by Duk Duk. It takes approximately 15 mins  Phaholyothin11 and is  situated in between Ari station and Saphan Khwai Station.

We went to Ari 4 branch and the restaurant is REALLY REALLY hard to see. We have passed by several times in the same ari just walking back and forth!! We for sure we didn’t go to the wrong Soi (street) and the GPS did showed that we already there! As it was situated inside the gate and what you can see is the view below when you pass by. Lamgate was hidden at the dead end of the road. So that’s explain the reason why we passed by so many times!

There was a piano at the front door with the royal blue paint on wall, also some old books on shelf  which have the european looks & feel. The waitress was so nice and allow us to get into the restaurant much earlier than the booking time because of the heavy rain that night. Which is much appreciated!

Where to have French Breakfast in Bangkok – Paul Depuis 1889

bangkok_paul_depuis1889_frenchrestaurant

Since my hotel was quite close to Central Embassy, it just took me 5 mins from my hotel to the mall. Me and my husband have no plan to go to  Paul Bakery but only went in because of their simply but attractive exterior.

Paul Depuis 1889 was the first french bakery in Bangkok. They were founded over a century ago in Croix, Northern France. It served country-style and fancy artisan breads and well known for producing over 140 types of breads. They have opened over 400 branches over the world. There are 4 branches except Embassy in Bangkok, The Emporium, Central World and Empire Tower . If you are looking for an affordable but quality french breakfast with a convenient location,Paul Depuis 1889 shall be one of your choice.

The take away counter had a wide variety of delicious looking cake and pastries. I haven’t got a chance to try their croissant however it seems like they have many good reviews. The price is not cheap but is affordable. Not only Croissant they offer but also freshly made fruit tarts and cakes everyday. I would highly recommend to try this if you haven’t. They just looks so delicious to me!

THE COMMONS – The Backyard Garden of Thonglor

New Hippest Spot in Bangkok The Commons Backyard Thonglor

I went to Bangkok last month and visited the new hippest space with artistic café, market and playground – The Commons. A place where you can get closer to the nature but not too far from the city. They also call it as the backyard of Thonglor. Located in Soi Thonglor 17. The earliest opening is 08:00 a.m however not all café / restaurant were fully open that early, so I would highly suggest not to go to early unless you want to have an early breakfast.
