What You Could Get In Bangkok For $10 – Feeling Great at Wat Saket!

Back again at the series of What You Could Get In The City For $10, beautravelers!

In the last couple of series, we managed to cover what $10 could do in some of the most expensive cities in the world like Paris or New York. This time, we’re going back to Asia, and probably one of your favorite cities in the world. What is it?

Yup, it’s Bangkok! 😀

I mean, it’s not surprising at all that Thailand is really popular as a tourist destination. There are so many wonderful hidden gems in Thailand. Not only is there a lot of places to visit, from temples to beaches, but everything is also so affordable for our budget! And don’t forget about the fact that it’s called The Land of Smiles. 🙂

This time, thanks to Candice from Voyage-bound Girls who took some time to write the feature about what you could get for $10 in the capital city of Thailand.

Eat-Pray-Love, Bangkok Way!

When another blogger posted an announcement that they need links related to traveling in Thailand, I noticed that I only got one post about Thailand as I reviewed Sawasdee Bangkok Inn the other day.

Yes, now that I’ve been there… I think it’s not surprising that Thailand is so many travelers’ favorite destination. From strolling around for a day trip in Ayutthaya to spending your honeymoon around the beach in Hua Hin, Thailand has a lot of things to offer! 😀

Forgive me that it might be a little redundant (again) like some other posts but for exactly the same reason I want to share with you what to do in the capital city of Thailand.

I mean, sure yall have heard about the book (or the movie) of Eat Pray Love, but what if you only have one day to do all these three things in one city only? Does it sound like so many things to do and so little time?

Worry not, because in my opinion, Bangkok has got them all, even when you’re traveling solo around the Land of Smiles! 😀

The Battle of Online Cabs in South East Asia: Uber, Grab or Go-Jek?

I remember getting lost in the city that I had never been before with the language that I barely spoke, hailing a cab to get me somewhere without knowing how to tell the driver about your destination could be really difficult. Nowadays, with the emergence of Uber and then some similar platforms, life is a whole lot easier!

In the past few years, I get used to traveling around South East Asia and the existence of these platforms are so handy at times.

From my home country Indonesia to Uncle Ho’s Vietnam, I gotta say Uber, Grab and Go-Jek are applications that I would not delete from my phone as long as they operate. But which one is the best amongst the three?

Hard to tell, but everything has its perks so stay tuned! 😉

Review: Sawasdee Bangkok Inn Hotel

When I decided to go to Bangkok after Hong Kong on my birthday trip, I’ve already been told about how cheap everything is in Bangkok. When I started to look at the accommodation options after Hong Kong, I agree.

To be fair, the rate for accommodation in Hong Kong is pretty much like Singapore, so of course everything was cheaper when I looked at the options in Bangkok. And being a cheap traveler as I am, I decided to book Sawasdee Bangkok Inn Hotel for my accommodation in Bangkok for a few reasons.

Jittima, my Thai ex-roommate when we were based in Jeddah, suggested me to find a place to stay in Khao San Road as that’s where most tourists stay when they come to Bangkok. And when I checked out the hotels in the area, everything was cheap and I could book superior queen bed with my budget at this Sawasdee Bangkok Inn Hotel.
