We are back in Bangkok for our final few days of shopping and essential prep for Australia. There is actually something comforting being back in Bangkok. It almost feels homely.
We lucked out on a really nice hotel in Nana right by Nana BTS and only 2 stops from the shopping districts. Noel and I have spent almost 3 full days of shopping. Its crazy! There are about 20 shopping centres spread along 3 streets which all connect pretty much. Between 7 and 14 floors in each of clothes, clothes and more clothes and shoes and bags and electronics. Honestly, it is too much and that's coming from me!!!!
We went everywhere to check out the best deals and found the shopping centres of Pantip and Platinum to be the absolute best so don't waste time repeat our research!!! Get the BTS to Chit Lom!
Once we were shopped out it was nice to get back to Nana and chill out in the bar just at the corner of our little side street, opposite Tom's Fashion (see our post about this amazing tailor!). We also found a great street stall where we had lovely Thai food for 50BHT.
On our last day we treated ourselves to a very nice lunch at a restaurant called Cabbages and Condoms. It was beautiful food and a portion of your bill goes to their charity which helps Thailand across a variety of issues. It is so good that it is the benchmark for other charities that Columbia and Mayamar are replicating.
Following some nice food it was off to the spa called Foot Joy for a one hour reflexology massage. It was amazing and not only did they massage your feet, they included you legs, arms, shoulders and head. AMAZING!!!!!
Time now to depart and get to the airport where we met Yada and Evelyn one last time. They even brought us pizza, pasta and a Thai shirt to send us on our way. It was very sad and we had a tear in our eye.
Lets see how our Qantas flight is to Sydney.
Goodbye Thailand......see you again very soon!!!!
