Koh Li Pe.. Β I am beach bum!! πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ˜Š

2017 shows me that I am really like to go everywhere I wanted to go!  

After came back from Bangkok, the desire to go travel was really strong! πŸ˜“ 

Actually, planning to go to Koh Li Pe, Thailand has been discussed since late 2016. Its all started on one good night when I was really in the mood to google and explore what they have in Koh Lipe.  And woke up on the next day, i saw my fren’s posted her pics about her trip in Koh Lipe!! OMG!! I was like amazed. Seriously social media bring alots of influence in your life.. Sigh.. Be strong Nini!! πŸ˜“πŸ˜“ Yesterday night i was stalking about Koh Lipe.. Then i decided to gather the information and discussed with my frens.. Hihi..  

The initial plan is, we wanted to have a road trip to Koh Lipe..Driving all the way to Satun, Thailand and then taking the ferry from Pak Barra Jetty..  But then the plan have to change since my car was not in a good condition. 

So we change the plan, taking a flight to Langkawi, and then ferry from Telaga Harbour Jetty, Langkawi.  We are lucky enough to get the plane airfare with a good price 😁 *smiling*.  The ferry cost us RM230 return from Telaga Harbour Jetty, Langkawi to Koh Li Pe with almost 1 hour 30 mins journey.

Arrived at the Satun Lipe Immigration office, settled all of the documents we went to check in at A+ Hostel. Located at the Walking Street, Koh Li Pe. We were so amazed with the crystal clear water.. Oh this is only at the shore, cant wait with the view soon!!  πŸ˜πŸ˜

We walked thru all the Walking street and following the signboard to reach to the Sunset Beach. Quite tiring but we are amazed with the view in the picture above..  πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜ 

Went back to the hostel by the taxi. Its Motor taxi actually.. Quite pricey since there’s no other vehicle except these bikes on the island! Its costs us 50 Baht per person.   

We had a blast dinner on the first night! I will upload all the food picture later kay.. Hehe..  β˜Ίβ˜Ί 

Second day at Koh Lipe,  We have our island hopping.. We took 5 island and cost us 200 baht each. We got discount since i can converse and bargains in kelantanese dialect. Oh ya, i found most of the people on this island understand and able to speak in Malay language with Kelantanese or Northern part dialect.. Now i feel blessed cause im Kelantanese.. Hahahaa 😎😎

Am I in heaven? 😍😍😍
Batu batu hitamm.. So unique 😘😘

We rest for a while at the hostel and then we went out for our dinner. Having dinner and then we had our massage!! Yeayyy!! My most fav things to do when im in Thailand! 😍😍😍 Thai massage is the bestπŸ˜˜πŸ‘Œ 

Oh its the third day in Koh lipe.. I had my morning prayers in my cubical and then Izzah and I went for Sunrise chasing.. Omg im truly in love.. I love it all in this place.. The sunrise view extremely beautiful.. Love. Dunno what else to describe..

Bangkok!!! 😘😘 Day 4, 5, 6&7: 7th, 8th & 9th January 2017

Early morning we wake up.. Knock knock on the door.. Eh??It’s Britney Spears song titled Lucky nothing to do with our trip..  πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Woke up on the day 4 of our trip at Glur Bangkok Hostel & Coffee Bar which is just 50m away from Saphan Taksin BTS station and also Bangrak Plaza! 

Here they will serve u a cup of drink while waiting for check in.. Good customer service isn’t It? 😊

Here in Bangrak Plaza we had our Halal Brunch 😘😘 It is just a walking distance to these place and they served quite quite variety of Thai food.. Awesome seriously i cant resist to avoid Thai Food.. Im in love with the food guys!!  

Yummeyhhh yummehhh no words to describe the deliciousness of these food 😘😘

While waiting for the food to be served,  I still got a chance to watch the Muay Thai on the Thai tv!!  Have no chance to go on live at the stadium, manage to watch on tv.. Okay laa πŸ‘πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

Muay Thai show

We continue our journey to the next place.. Since today is Saturday so we planned to go to Chatuchak Market which is only available on weekend. 

Having our backpack on our shoulder, we decided to go to the hotel first..  The Glur Hostel at Pratunam.Walking through the road for quite some time, almost 1 hour maybe and then continue our journey via train to chatuchak market. We arrived at the place and found there are really big market with a lots of things sold here. Im thinking next time come to Bangkok will only do for shopping. πŸ˜‚

Done with chatuchak market.. We went to Asiatique for Calypso Cabaret show!!  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ We took a train from the chatuchak and then to walking at about 3km to arrive Asiatique.. Hahaha.. Asiatique is nice.. A very good ambience for you to spent with family. U may ride the things in below pic.. Haa so sorry cause i have forgotten the name already.. Too bad 

The ride with Calypso Cabaret Show
Earlier at #ChatuchakMarket Passport Holder cost u 100Baht only

Done with the show we went back to the hotel by Uber.. Very easy to get the Uber.. We r lucky the uber guy are very kind. Waze brought us to the wrong hostel.. The name quite similar but unfortunately totally different. That Uber guy dropped us right in front of the night market. The name is Talad Neon. I found here very easy to find halal food. One of the things that i like about Thailand is, halal food is easy to find. We have no issue regarding food. If you go to the 7/11, there are quite a lot packaging food with halal logo. 

Stall sellinG mango sticky rice

Arrived at the hotel, we had the Mango Sticky Rice and Fried Chicken that we bought at the cafeteria. 

The next day. We woke up in the morning happily as we will go to far place today. Sunflowers hunting. I am so amazed since i never had a chance to see the sunflower before.  

Amazing 😘😘 Sunflower fields
😘😘

The guide, Raweewang so kind. She brought us to a lots of Sunflower field. Where we at actually? We went to Saraburi.  One of the places that contribute to the Sunflower plantation. We were so amazed with the beauty of Sunflower.  

Beauty of Allah’s creation ❀

We spent almost 2-3 hours at the Sunflower field and Raweewang brought us to the other side of Saraburi province. We ride the train and passing by the road with locals.  I bet no one knows this place πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 

Finish with the train ride, we had our seafood lunch at one of the restaurants. Tom yum in Thailand are very well known with their deliciousness πŸ˜‚.. Besides, the sauces are the compliment of the taste.. Oh yummeyyhh 😘😘

Thailand popular Tom Yum 😘😘

Done with the food, we heading back to Bangkok. However we ask Raweewang to stop us at one of the new places that we encounter in Bangkok, The Chocolate Ville. It is situated in the middle of Bangkok City and yes this place are yet to be known by others. 

The concept are more to Europe style with the romantic kind of background music.

Bangkok!!! 😘😘 Day 2&3 : 5th & 6th January 2017 

Oh ya after 1 week now i think i m in a mood to write up my stories πŸ˜‰ 

Day 1  Was awesome. We woke up not really early on the 2nd day staying in #KhaoSanHoliday.  Just nice.. Haha Weather are really during our journey towards us.. Not too hot nor too gloomy 😊… 

We walked through the Khao San Road by using Google Maps in our mobile phone πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.. We don’t know the place yet the only thing i get to know is thru social media is its name.  AESAH ROTDEE… A Muslim restaurant serving Halal food in the middle of Khao San Road πŸ‘. Thanks to the #instafamous for sharing the information in their instagram. Looks how we maximize the function of social media 😊😊

This is what we had.. Yummehhhhh πŸ‘πŸ‘

The food are awesome! We cant resist to not drink #ThaiIcedTea 😘😘 The most fav drink in Bangkok. Thanks to the people in social media like an Instagram for introducing me with this restaurant πŸ’‹

Done eating, we continue the journey thru the road. We headed the junction and can see the seller are getting ready to open their stalls by the road side. I noticed they are selling a lots of dress and blouses which is black and white theme in color. I believed they are all still mourn due to the death of the Thai King.. 

We walked and find a stall selling fresh fruit juice..i can see fruit juice are easy to find here in Thailand.  My fren got hers.  

Nyamannnnn 😘😘 

We walked again. Yes our plan for today is walking. Exploring Bangkok by walking on the roadπŸ˜‚. 

However, i told to my buddy that i wanted to try Tuk Tuk. So then we were planning to go to the nearest journey so that we wont pay much money πŸ˜‰. We told to the Tuk Tuk driver we wanted to go to the park.. Arghhh i forgot the name already. We knew the place by checking it up on the board below. 

A very good for tourist information πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

We got to pay 40Baht for 2 πŸ‘πŸ‘ Yeayyy.. The skilled of bargain are really needed here ya guys πŸ˜‚ 

Experiencing Tuk Tuk 

We found the park. A nice small park in the middle of Bangkok city.  

Enjoying the scenery viewing Chao Phra Ya river

While seating and enjoying the view, theres an uncle came and standing in front of my travel partner and sharing his experiences.. He told us that we can walked thru the pier.. There have a pedestrian walked and at the end of it we may find Thammasat University.. Follow the road as advise by that uncle, we reached to the junction at the main road. 

Again we found a tourist board with an information saying that we are just nearby with Bangkok National Museum πŸ‘πŸ˜‰. So than to save money, we continue the journey by walking. Its tiring but its really good to experience the moment.. I felt that i am really2 a backpackers haahaha.. Okay berangan..  Lol. We arrived to the national museum.. Its free entry..Lucky! 

A small entrance just beside the main gate..  

I believed we r not into the history of Thailand. Most of us knew that Thailand are very well known with the Buddha and Wat.. We were just snapped a lil bit of pic at the Museum.  Let’s see 😊😊

Done with the National museum we proceed the journey to tbe Wat Saket.. ALmost 3km walked  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚.. All the way on the road, we found some interesting place to take pic πŸ˜‚

I had to climb for 337 of staircase in order to reach top πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚..  Only me alone hike.. Travel buddy dont want to hike.. Its okay as long as we walked together to reach the place.  

Then we took Tuk Tuk going back to Khao San road which cost us 70Baht per person.  

Night came. We walked and continue the night at Khao San Road. We had our dinner with the street food πŸ‘πŸ‘ nyummeyhhh 

On the Day 3..  We had decided to buy a package at the airport yes we admit it quite pricey.. YEahhh we satisfied because we managed to go to our bucketlisted places 😊😊

Thru Floating Market
Peoples shopping stuff at floating market

At last!!  I managed to go to Bangkok!!  Don’t know why this is the fav and eager place for me to drop by πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ . As all knows, Bangkok is the capital city of Thailand, and the biggest, busiest and most congested city in the country.. Oppss our tourist guide inform us Bangkok are one of the 5 busiest city in the world!!!! 😱😱😱😱. Well known for its vibrant nightlife, beautiful temples and bustling markets. And of course, it is also popular as the place people come in searching for excitement and for me,  I had my own little agenda while in Bangkok– time to take on the heat, the traffic and the hectic craziness. Here’s what I did during my awesome 6 days in the city😘😘

Trip to Bangkok has been planned quite sometimes ago. Bought the plane ticket since August 2016. We were able to get the price rm250 return per pax 😊😊 Big smile because i found this is cheap which dated 4th – 9th January 2017.. I wish this will be a very good start for me in travelling this year 2017. We boarding through AirAsia AK886 from KLIA2-Don Mueang Bangkok exactly at 15.30 Malaysia time..  βœŒ 

Arrived in Bangkok we got stucked at the counter to buy the local SIMCARD. We choose TrueMoveH for the ISP during our time in Bangkok.  This is for data usage and also make call cost 299Baht, 1.5GB speed for 7 days usage. Its worth it! Including the free wifi at the hotel, it is more than enough!  πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘Œ

299 Baht for 1 week usage Call and data usage 😘😘
f
We head to the exit but dunno how to get to our hotel at Khao San Road. Then we passed by a small counter which 1 Thai girl explain to the 3 tourist. I can see there’s small written to Khao san road cost 150Baht per person. Cheap isnt it?? 😊😊 We then decided to take the bus to our hotel which located at Khao san road. 

Cheaper ticket to Khao San Road 😘😘

40 minutes journey from Don Mueang Airport to Khao San Road is just nice since we r too tired carrying our backpack πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Done check in.. We stay at Khao San Holiday just beside the Khao San Road.. Fuhhhh the road are really busy with the tourist.. For those who likes to party, here is the right place for u! Haha me? No.Im not.. I just like to “cuci mata” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ found ur own what is “cuci mata” for  MALAYSIAN.. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
