Upon arrival in #Bangkok for the second leg, we had our anniversary dinner at this gorgeous place called Buddy’s Beer & Wine bar and Seafood at Khaosan Road.
Apparently this is a very popular place and it was full at 8PM. Huge space with ample indoor and outdoor seating. Right kind of music and a great menu for both vegetarians and non vegetarians. We shared a couple of cocktails here and a mind blowing wood fired pizza.
Had a hearty conversation and headed out on the main street which by now had turned into a chaos. Chaos, because all the street pubs and clubs were blaring loud music however everyone including us were having a ball of a time. We were particularly impressed by this place called The One. Getting a table there was tough but we were persistent and we managed. DJ there was kick-ass she was playing some mind blowing music and we partied till wee hours.

Now this was our last day of Thailand, and we had to make the most of it. We started our day at Khao San Arte Hotel’s Cafe Picasso. Details in the review here
Had a hearty breakfast and headed to Grand Palace
Located at the heart of Bangkok, the Grand Palace was a former residence for kings. Today, the place is used for hosting royal ceremonies. It is divided into two main zones, which are the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and the royal residence.
As we were staying in #Khaosan road area which is in the center of Bangkok visiting most of these places was much more easier to us.
After Grand Palace we went back to Khaosan road to check it out in the day. Trust me, we fell in love with it even more because it has such a cool vibe, all those noisy street pubs were now laid back pubs playing classics serving beer and scrumptious food in their al fresco seating. We decided to end our tour with yet another couples massage followed by yet another round of shopping and a hearty meal at Lucky Beer.
I now understand why Bangkok is such a famous party hub. It has a such a lively vibe. It is crowded no doubt but it is so safe. Not once did we come across any incident that would taint the image of the people and the country. The people were so nice and warm. They were always so helpful. Both Bangkok and Koh Samed were so much cleaner and nicer than I imagined them to be. Honestly I don't think we explored even half of Bangkok. There was so much more to see and so much more to do. We are definitely coming back for more. And next time for a longer duration.
