    Fascinating historic home hidden in the heart of BKK.

    To get the most out of this place, be sure to wiki Jim Thompson who, apart from playing a principal role in bringing Thai silk to global markets, was a also member of the international intelligence community and ... who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Keep all of this in your imagination as you peruse the elegant and traditional Thai home that is nestled surreptitiously in the middle of Bangkok's tourist district.

    A beautiful mall with one of the best fresh produce markets. It’s on the expensive end, but it contains almost everything you can imagine. I have an infant, and we felt navigating the space was easy, as we could take the baby pram via elevators to almost every location. Food court has Thai, Italian, Japanese and American options, covering both normal and high end needs. The arrangement with men and women entirely on different floors in departmental store has its pros and cons. As a couple it felt difficult, but perhaps if I would have visited alone, I would have enjoyed the gender specific floors. The displays were nicely done, and gave the whole experience an artsy touch.

    We had trouble at the tickets office as we booked with klook BUT they wanted to charge extra as we we're nor Thai...........after they read my booking they allowed us in. Its a big aquarium and many things to see inside but we did this in an hour as its very quiet. We enjoyed the jellyfish area as this was illuminated.

    I had an amazing day exploring this QSMI Snake Farm. There are so many different kinds of snakes here. The information for each type is written clearly in both Thai and available in English for foreigners. There are 2 parts of the farm. The first part is located inside the building. The first floor presents snakes mostly from the rainforest in cabinets or cases. The upper floor shows the anatomy of snakes and medical details. Locating outside, the second part shows many other types of snakes and is the area for the snake shows. Snake shows are available 2 rounds a day in this COVID-19 period; one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. The staffs present the shows in both Thai and English and explain all the information very clearly. You can even ask questions.

    There are a few small details I want them to improve. The first one is that the second floor of the building that demonstrates medical information about snakes doesn't have a very nice smell. The second is to include more information or fun facts about each snake in the signs because I got some fun information, which I would love them to add these things more to the sign, from my friend whom I went with. Lastly, some equipment which is broken and unavailable to use should be fixed.

    Rainy Sunday it was, that forced me to duck into this space for some shelter from the downpour outside on Bangkok. And I am glad it happened that way.
    The building itself is architecturally appealing.. (think almost Guggenheim)
    Multi use spaces interspersed with coffee shops.. Book shops.. More galleries.. Other event spaces.. Meeting rooms a library and some retro and green spaces.
    I spent about 2 hours here browsing through the shops.. Looking at art and just absorbing the scale of the building.
    Won't make this a kid friendly space.. But will give credit here - They appear to have made considerable effort for mobility assistance.

    Exhibitions change often..so a quick browse on the Web to make sure you don't walk into a dead zone.

    Overall.. I found the space energizing and uplifting.. The art was a bonus..
    Coffee- chocolate- earth- and all other lovers of all kinds.. Come and explore...

    We had dinner at Zen Restaurant at CentralWorld on the sixth floor. After dinner we went to the ground floor. We exited the main building to see the Christmas Tree. The Christmas Tree was beautiful. The Apple Store is near the Tree. The parking was free because we had a dinner at the CentralWorld.

    I only went as I had a free ticket.  I wouldn't have bothered otherwise.  It was fun and I enjoyed this more than I expected.  Well laid out.  There were politicians, actors, singers, sports personalities and more.  Some of the wax works were very good but others definitely needed improvement.  It was educational as well.  I learnt a lot.  There are some interactive parts.  Clean.  Souvenir shop at the end where a number of items were reduced a lot.  I am guessing due to C-19 and less people around.  You need about 45 minutes.  I wouldn't say this is a must but if you have time and want to get out of the heat.  As I said, I had a free ticket so unsure on what the actual entrance fee is.  Located on the 4th floor of the Siam Discovery mall.  Staff are friendly

    MBK Shopping Mall is one of the most popular malls in Bangkok. Here you can find all kinds of goods: clothes, food, suitcases, mobile accessories and ....Downstairs there is a large and good supermarket. Here, the initial price is high, but after bargaining, you will find a suitable price.

    A large temple in the heart of newer Bangkok, Wat Pathum, is only 5 minute walk from Bangkok’s major shopping center, Paragon, Siam Square and Central world. The temple pursue the practice of the forest monk. There are many large trees inside the temple. Very relaxing to walk around

    In comparison to it's 'upmarket' neighbour Siam Paragon, this mall was nice but not as good.  Well laid out, there were a lot of shops but none of them appealed to me. Clean.  Fast wifi.  Much quieter than Siam Paragon.  Ultimately depends on what you are looking for.  There are some eateries as well if you are looking for a bite to eat and seating areas where many people were sitting.  I am guessing to use the free wifi and get out of the heat!

    The exterior of the building where Isetan is located looks slightly rundown now compared to the newly opened The Market that is across it. I still prefer it though.

    I particularly like dining at the 5F. It’s never too crowded and hectic. There are a number of Japanese restaurants/food stalls, Jap stores for sweets and foodstuff, and a mini supermarket.

    And yeah, Books Kinokuniya in the 6F.

    Now this is a unique way to really get around Bangkok. Best described as being dirty and dangerous... but also handy, vibrant and exhilarating.

    There are two options, the klorng boats, which run from 5:30am to 10:30pm, with ticket prices around 8B to 20B. These hold about 40-50 passengers, have dubious safety equipment, unreliable timetables but zoom down the canal at breakneck speeds. Whilst they have plastic tarpaulins you are fairly low to the water and always face the possibility of getting wet from the spray.

    The other alternative is the tourist hop on/hop off boats which run from Pratunam (bear the Central World Plaza) and Panfa Leelard, just behind the Mahakan Fort, at Phanfa Bridge. These are more expensive, but cheaper and quicker than a taxi, they give you the same experience as the local klorng boats but at a more leisurely and safer speed. Can purchase a one-way or all-day ticket.
