Bangkok - How We Spent Our 10th Wedding Anniversary; Pt 1

Bangkok was an experience like none other! Old and new co-exist alongisde one another like it was always meant to be. As you can see from the picture here, tall and modern buildings sprout up between little shops and houses. This is the mighty Chao Praya River - this picture was taken from our hotel room. We stayed at the beautiful Lebua State Tower and seeing that it was our wedding anniversary, they upgraded us to a suite! Their service, needless to say, was impeccable.

This is the living area of our room. It was nice to see a box of chocolates on the table as we walked into the it was a convenient place to dump all our purchases for the day!

There was a little kitchenette just past the hall and coffee making facilities (drip coffee maker) was provided. They also had cups and plates with some cutlery as well as a microwave which was really convenient especially since we brought back snacks to have late at night on the balcony!

The bathroom was the best part of the room for me as it was huge! I spent a night soaking in the tub and just relaxing........


Our bed was massive. I was hoping there would be a picture of it nicely made up but there is none. Every night, we found our bedroom slippers laid down and the bed turned for us with a card on the pillow describing the weather for the next day. Very important indeed for a tourist.

This picture was taken on the last day of our visit and the bag on the bed is so full that it was hard getting it back on the floor.

Look out for my next post on Bangkok's awesome food!
