I've been dreaming about Thailand for years now, thinking all my travel dreams would come true in this one country. I wanted to see all the temples, city, jungle, and ocean. I planned the trip so we wouldn't be just in Bangkok the whole time so be prepared for more posts of Thailand! When we arrived off the plane it was late at night and we really couldn't see anything except the city lights.
We woke up early in the morning jumping out of bed excited to see the views and walk around our hotel.
We found a beautiful hotel right by the river called Anatara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa. It was the perfect spot since it was right on the river and we could take the boat to different places for free. Instead of traveling by taxi you could ride the boat to see temples and enjoy some night life!
Speaking of nightlife we took the free boat ride to a place called Asiatique Riverfront. It's a great place to walk around, shop and eat! They have tons of tiny stores ranging from woman's clothing to rugs. Also if you get hungry don't worry they have a variety of restaurants to choose from.
The main reason we were going to Asiatique was because we bought tickets to a show!! It was the Ladyboys show of "Calypso Bangkok". I heard amazing things about them and thought it would be fun to have some drinks and watch a show.
It was an AMAZING and beautiful show! I loved every minute of it and they did everything so perfectly! I highly recommend to go watch them if you have the time during your travels!
By the time we got back to the hotel it was time to catch our dinner boat! This was not a free boat ride, we paid for this special dinner ride through the hotel. The dinner boat took us down the river to see all the beautiful temples that were lit up. It was kind of magical, specially while I was eating my coconut soup.
Best coconut soup ever! Delicious!!
