Bangkok Pratunam - Tips you might need ^.~

I am sure most of you heard about the recent hey-ho going on in Thailand.
Now that it is relatively peaceful again, i believe some are intending to take advantage of the current situation to travel cheap(or even cheaper) to Bangkok.

So here are some tips...
- Never book your hotels from travel agencies outside, at least not for Bangkok. They are always, if not most of the time charging you 30% more.

- For single-item purchases, Pratunam Market is still your best bet. For wholesale items(3pcs and above), visit Platinum Fashion Mall(Most shops inside allow mix'n'match from within the shop)

- Contrary to what advises you might have heard about whether to take meter taxis or tuk-tuk. Personally, for short distances, i would advise tuk-tuk as it is able to avoid most traffic jams and the price is always negotiated beforehand. Just make it clear that you don't want to visit any other place other than the destination of your choice.
For longer distance journeys, don't hesitate, take METER TAXI.

- Infant/Children clothings can be found extensively at Bo-Bae Tower. Pretty expensive though, unless you are buying wholesale.


On a side note, i have contacts in Amari Watergate Hotel(5*) that is able to secure room rates that you will never find in any online/physical travel agencies(stay 5 stars pay 3 stars' price).
So for those who want that little bit of luxury in your accommodation, e-mail me at ez.wanderer@gmail.com [ No guarantee in availability but can confirm within 24 hours ] You can get a full refund if you are able to find anywhere else that offer lower rates than me within 3 days after booking.

Sorry for the sales-like talk, just want everybody safe from rip-offs. Hope the tips help! You may also e-mail me for any questions pertaining to Bangkok, will try my best to help!
