A Memorable and Fun Filled Trip to Bangkok

I am all the time quite held up with my job as a dentist treating patients and following a fixed routine. So every now and then I need a break from my daily schedule to relax and rejuvenate my mind and body.

What else could be a more happening idea to seek some fun rather than going on a trip to the beautiful tourist destination Bangkok with friends?So I was quite excited for this holiday and I made the flight and hotel bookings well in advance to avoid last minute hassle. I searched the comparative prices and schedule of all the major air carriers operating between Hong Kong to Bangkok and finally decided to book flight tickets for Cathay Pacific Airlines.

Cathay Pacific Airlines-fly in comfort

This leading budget air carrier offers some of the best in – flight amenities such as state of the art in – flight AVOD entertainment system with a host of music, movie and TV channels to choose from. The airline also offers in – flight magazine to keep the passengers occupied all through the flight duration. I boarded the Cathay Pacific flight at 12 pm from the Hong Kong Airport and reached the Suvarnabhumi Airport at Bangkok at 1.55 pm. the total flight duration for my non – stop flight was 2 hours and 55 minutes. The airline allows 30 kgs of check – in baggage and 7 kgs of cabin baggage free of cost. Hence I could easily carry all my stuff without worrying for payment of extra surcharge on luggage.

Kingston Suites – elegant Bangkok boutique hotel

As I reached the Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport the airport shuttle offered by my hotel was already waiting to take me to my stay in the city which I had booked online. The uniquely designed Kingston Suites hotel is located outside the hustle bustle of the city and hence was a perfect recluse for me. The artfully blended elegance and styles with world class hospitality offered by this four star property did not fail to impress me. Some of the modern amenities and personalized services offered by this hotel are –

  • Air conditioned and tastefully designed, spacious rooms
  • Round the clock room service and Porters
  • Front desk
  • Elevators
  • Free parking
  • Complimentary wireless internet connectivity
  • Hair dryer and complimentary toiletries
  • In -houses multi-cuisine restaurant
  • Bar and Business centre etc.

My stay was really comfortable in this hotel. Hereafter I went out to explore some of the most revered attractions in the city.

Places to visit

I visited the Sea Life in Bangkok which is one of the largest aquariums in Southeast Asia. The admission  are a bit steep here but you can get your money’s worth if you stay longer and enjoy the calm and relaxing ambience of this place.

I am quite interested in taking a dive into the history and culture of the places I visit. Hence I headed towards the Bangkok National Museum which is the largest museum in the entire South East Asia. The collectables and artefacts give a peep into the intricate history of Thailand. I also went for some street shopping to the Khao San Road.
