After our relaxing trip to Khao Yai which you can read here, we went to Bangkok to eat, sleep, repeat.
Day 1 – seafood feast
King Kaew Seafood Buffet – highly recommended
The first stop is King Kaew for their seafood buffet which is very near to Suvarnabhumi Airport.
There is a section where you can catch live prawns and crabs. You use the tongs to catch the live seafood and put them into the iced water to kill them.
The seafood is really fresh and big. And for the price of 399 Baht (around RM50) for unlimited seafood, it’s definitely a steal. You don’t need to worry about your wallet but you might want to check on the cholesterol level after that.
Address: หมู่ที่ 6 8/16 Soi King Kaeo 52/1, Racha Thewa, Bang Phli District, Samut Prakan 10540, Thailand
Business hours: Mon-Fri 4-11pm, Sat & Sun 3-11pm
After the awesome, sinful meal, we took Grab to Marwin Villa.
Marwin Villa – Recommended
Strategic location (422m from Platinum Fashion Mall, 800m from Ratchathewi BTS) with clean room and reasonable price. You can take a look at their rooms here.
Address: 37 3rd floor Petchaburi Soi, 15 Phetchaburi Rd, Thanon Phaya Thai, Ratchathewi, Bangkok 10400, Thailand
Day 2 – visiting the famous corgi and seafood again
The next day, we started our day with simple but tasty breakfast opposite The Market Bangkok and beside McD.
We recommend trying out the food here especially the glass noodles above. You’ll definitely recognize the stall as they have a big broth pot with fish balls and meat balls as the photo below. The clear soup is light and flavorful which is nice for breakfast.
After our delicious breakfast, off we go to Corgi in the Garden to visit the adorable corgis.
Corgi in the Garden – recommended
You can visit the corgi at the following time slots during their business hours:
- 10.30am (only Sat and Sun)
Each slot is only limited to 50 customers and tickets are open for sale 30 mins before each slot.
There are several entrance ticket packages that you can buy depending on your preference. We chose the drinks + cake package.
Once you walked past the entrance, you are required to wash your hands and wear a shoe cover. You will then be given a do’s and don’t instructions as per the photo below:
Once it reaches the time, the hungry corgi will be released to eat the food given by the customers. Each bowl of dog food is charged at 100 Bath each.
There a total of 14 corgi: Porkchop, Pumpkin, Bean, Quinn, Barley, Blossom, Bone, Bluebell, Dean, Buttercup, Cheesecake, Ham, Marmalade, and Marshmallow. They each have their own characteristics but you can easily differentiate them by the scarfs printed with their name around their neck.
If you like corgi, then Corgi in the Garden is definitely a must-visit. Unless you are afraid of dogs, you will likely be drown by their cuteness.
Address: 338/1 Kallapaphruek Road Bang Wa, Phasicharoen Bangkok 10160, Thailand
Business hours: Closed on Mon, Tue-Fri 10.30am-6pm, Sat & Sun 10.30am-6pm
After visiting the corgi, we head to Central World to have some seafood as there is a food fair going on outside of the mall.
Then, we went to Chatuchak Weekend Market which we didn’t get to visit the first time when we were in Bangkok.
Chatuchak Weekend Market – recommended
We went there on Friday so there were not many stalls opened. However, it’s more of a shopping heaven for clothes and accessories but not so much for food.
Address: สวนจตุจักร Kamphaeng Phet 2 Rd, Chatuchak, Bangkok 10900, Thailand
Business hours: Closed on Mon-Tue, Wed-Thurs 7am-6pm, Fri 6pm-12am, Sat & Sun 9am-6pm
Next, we went to Talad Rot Fai Train Night Market Ratchada.
Talad Rot Fai Train Night Market Ratchada – recommended
Although it was Friday, the crowd here is so much packed compared to Chatuchak. Besides that, there are a lot of tours that come here as well thus the huge crowd.
There is a balance of food and fashion items here therefore I would prefer here than Chatuchak Weekend Market cause I prefer food more.
Address: Ratchadaphisek Rd, Din Daeng, Bangkok 10400, Thailand
Business hours: Daily 5pm-1am
Day 3 – the eating journey continues
The next day, we went to some stalls nearby the Platinum Fashion Mall to have our breakfast which comes with 2 big prawns. However, it is quite pricey and not to our liking.
After having our breakfast and shopping at the Platinum Fashion Mall, we walked over to The Market Bangkok to try out Lhong Tou.
Lhong Tou Cafe – recommended
I put high hopes on the crispy pork with rice and soya yolk as there are only 50 portions per day. However, it’s nothing to shout about. But overall the food is ok and I’m especially impressed by the intricacy of the flower jelly although it is kinda pricey.
Address: 111 Ratchadamri Rd,G Floor ,The Market Bangkok, Lumphini, Pathum Wan District, Bangkok 10330, Thailand
Business hours: Daily 10am-10pm
I still remember the first time we tried After You in Terminal 21 and there were so many people. However, the branch here is quite empty. Either because the trend dies down or it’s due to the less crowd here. Therefore, you can have After You here if other branches are crowded.
Address: F, G, 111 Ratchadamri Rd, Lumphini, Pathum Wan District, Bangkok 10330, Thailand
Business hours: Daily 10am-10pm
It’s a short Bangkok trip but we are definitely contented with the amount of seafood that we had especially from the King Kaew Seafood Buffet. Do visit if you are in Bangkok for big, juicy seafood with reasonable price. We might need to check our cholesterol level after this. Stay tuned for the next article as our luggage got lost after we landed in KLIA.
