2008 February: Bangkok: Day 3: Dream World

2008 February: Bangkok: Day 3: Dream World

Based on my research on the net, most of the temples are closed during Mondays, thus we decided to visit a theme park then.

We were picked up from the hotel, at around 9:30 and was able to reach Dream World at around 10:30. The package we got is straight from Dream World ( thus it is much cheaper compare to those offered by travel agencies. The 1000THB package already includes the hotel transfer, the entrance to the park and to snow town and a buffet lunch.

We wanted to check this place to take photo op in the Love Garden and to the Seven Wonders of the World. On my sister’s point of view, you can skip this place because the Seven Wonders are just miniatures and was disappointing to tourists.

If you are with kids, they will surely love this place. It is advisable to visit the area during weekend if you want to meet mascots, and weekdays if you want to enjoy the place with fewer visitors around.

At 3:00pm we headed back again to our hotel. We planned to visit the Baiyoke Sky Tower to see Bangkok from the Bird’s eye view, but decided not to. We went to the malls instead to buy our presents.

MBK is like a 6 storey Greenhills shopping area. In 6th floor you can experience the local Thai food in their huge food court.

Just take the bridge way for you to checkout the next larger malls. I bought my Starbucks City Mug from Siam Discovery.

The floorings of Siam Center is so beautiful as it has colorful seats. Then we take photos outside the Siam Paragon. Don’t forget to check out the Siam Ocean World (, a souvenir shop for all your all time favorite Nemo and sharks are available here, beside their ticket booths.

From here you can also reach Central World and Isetan malls. To go back to Ibis Siam Hotel, take bus 73, 204 and 514. But if you are carrying too much shopping bags, you can always take a cab anyway. Tuktuks are also available on the side - so its like having a tricycle in the Philippines’ EDSA Road.
